Now, I like quite a few of Lian-Li's products, by why in the name of all things computer case related did they create this thing? I just don't see the point of it, as you'd be much better of getting a standard test rig setup than this wobbly thing. On top of that, mini-ITX motherboards are severely limited when it comes to overclocking.

this would not be for those who want to overclock. This would be for LAN party friendly or low voltage pc's. Taking that into account, the design sucks! You might as well get one of those overclocking work station "cases" or just go without a case. Why house the PSU and not the motherboard is what is screwy:shadedshu

Li-Li hasn't made any advances in the last year towards making cases better/more affordable. This just proves it.

Well IMO its just like a ferrari, are they making any affordable cars to the masses? no..
most likely because of their manuf. techniques + using aluminum + high QC..
I'd get a lancool instead of lian li..

So the motherboard mounts on the top of the case? That is stupid! I can't take it anywhere, because if I put it in my trunk, I'd be to worried the thing would tip over and the cooler would break off, especially if I was using a heavy tower cooler. Sp lan parties go out the window.

Li-Li hasn't made any advances in the last year towards making cases better/more affordable. This just proves it.
I think at this point they've covered all the bases with their current cases, there is no need to make them that much better with entire redesigns, though they do keep making small tweeks on their current cases.

As for making them more affordable, Lian-Li has always been about high quality cases, which come at a premium(sometimes it is worth it, sometimes it isn't). However, their Lancool series has made a great step towards more affordable cases.

I think at this point they are just throwing out random crazy cases to try and catch the niche few people that like that sort of thing.

What the heck has gotten into Lian Li lately? First they make the mutant four-legged spider case for ITX boards (which deveats the point of ITX) and then they bring out a case that protects all but the fragile components. Where were the designers of the PC-A17 when the clowns in the idiot department were coming up with this rubbish? Come on Lian Li! Who would want a case that holds a massive power supply but doesn't hold the motherboard?

I simply can't think of any LAN Party person that would be happy to show of their 1337 low voltage computer which can barely even beat their mates P4 in performance?
