I've just found the best Mid Tower style case that I've ever seen

I've seen cases of all shapes, sizes, designs, etc.

This is the best Mid Tower sized case for cooling performance while having maximum storage capacity and flexibility.

Granted it's a cube style case where it's double wide, but the advantages you get with it's inherent design is amazing.

So much cooling, so much compartimentalization of heat zones.

And made by Lian Li, the best aluminum case makers IMO and many users who have used their products.

Tell me what you think folks?

I think that's not a mid tower. The "full tower E-ATX" gave it away.

My old Lian Li Mid Tower is 9x 5.25" drive bays high

This one is 10x 5.25" drive bays

All Lian Li Full Tower / Server towers have the equivalent of 12x 5.25" drive bays or more in height

I like it. It reminds me of the Corsair Air 540. Obviously the Lian Li is bigger and more than twice the cost of the Corsair, but it seems better thought out. Either corsair ran out of time or budget and had to rush some of the details.

Only thing I don't like about the Lian Li is the big gap above the motherboard tray for watercooling. It seems to defeat the purpose of the "dual chamber" design. I would like to have seen a removable panel instead.

I wouldn't worry too much about the gap, since heat rises and if you have the top 2x 120mm fans installed, the heat will get sucked out the top or out the back, so it's not much of an issue IMO.

Well, there's ample space to fit a lot of hardware in, but Jesus, that thing is ugly as s***.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I personally think it looks fine.

I like simple and elegant designs, I hate modern gaudy case designs.
