Silver aint bad, just most components these days are black. However, this would go good in my cabinet because my Pioneer Surround Sound system is silver :)

Djisas, to you it's ugly but to the tasteful amongst us it's simple, elegant & beautifully made. :cool:

MomentoMoir, lots of HCPC's do have a big nob on. The reason Lian Li don't add them is because they have good designers:roll:

WarEagleAU, firstly, Lian Li always offer a black option. Secondly, you clearly don't hold quality in particularly high regard, as displayed by your Pioneer SS System, so why are you looking at Lian Li?! They're a make that should be partnered with the likes of Monitor Audio, B&W or similar. Sticking it with Pioneer is like getting a Porsche GT & painting it beige :nutkick:

The space & airflow in this mother is unmatched by any HCPC case. It is one of the very few that can realistically be used for an home cinema & gaming. When it comes to cases, Lian Li are God :respect:
