    I bought a Silver CM Stacker 830 Evo last year. Worst quality control of any case I've ever own. The motherboard standoff holes were slightly misaligned, the frame for add-on cards (PCI, PCI-E) was slightly too high and warped, the fan bracket for the side panel is too thick and precludes using all four fan slots since a tall CPU cooler with hit it. Everything about the assembly was a p.i.t.a and I had about four bloody nicks on my hands from all the sharp edges. I may have just gotten a "lemon", but I was very disappointed considering how much I paid for it (over $200).

    Just replaced it last week with a little Antec 300 that cost me $59. It had better quality control, the install process was much easier and the darn thing is cooler with the same hardware vs. the CM.

    Very nice paint job on the panels! Looks really sharp. Yeah, as I said, I must have just gotten a lemon with mine. Even the best product can have a bad one come down the assembly line once in a while. I'm not getting rid of mine - someday when I have the time, inclination and a dremel I'll take care of its defects. Too expensive to get rid of!

    I knows, and I also really like the looks of the Lian Li. It's just that the ATCS 840 has a TON of features, is stylish, and is not too overpriced; therefore I seconded.

    Lian Li should be considered on the quality of their cases alone....but, as always, there is more to buying a case than just one thing.

    I love my Lian Li and to be honest, I'd never buy another case that wasn't a LiLi as it simply is the best case I have ever owned or worked on.

    imho the CM is no slouch of a case. Yes it was missing a few features but this was easily fixable with a dremal :)

    As a recommendation, and to throw yet another spanner in your works, have you looked at any silverstone cases? Namely the model I own, the Fortress FT01B-W? I owned that linked Lian Li for a day and hated it, the build quality was awful and the cooling is a big let down, going to this case was amazing - take Lian Li's 'supposed' build quality and times it by 10, and you have this fortress. Such an amazing case - excellent CM from stock (first case I havent had to mod for cable management from stock), amazing airflow + pressure (aided by 18cm fans that are silent) and it looks bloody stunning.
