Cool case - my only gripe would be that it can't fit the longest video cards. I dig it - though because for me I feel that taller cases are the way to go - rather then longer or wider cases. I am not doing anything with the space above my PC - but the width and length takes up desk space.

Awesome case man. I myself am thinking about buying the 800D or the new TJ11. So many choices. Not practical for LAN transport but still all very awesome cases.

I have it's big brother.

If this one is anything close (and it should be, considering the price), it's worth every penny. :D

Love the case myself but chose the X900 for having 120mm front fans. Wish they made GentleTyphoon in 140mm.

I'm really excited about this case. This will be my first case of this quality. I currently own an antec 900 so I'm looking forward to the upgrade. After doing a build for a friend of mine using a lian li PB-7B case, I was extremely impressed by the quality. After a $25 coupon it still ended up being about $425 shipped.

The impulse buy was a result of me being aggravated with my current case; from wiring to dust build up. I'm hoping this case will take care of that and more.

very nice case but imo i would have waited for the xigmatek case to release, such a better layout and half the price (supposedly)
but good luck and post some pics when its loaded up!

It also doesn't look half as nice, is steel, and probably won't be built half as well.

Once you go Lian-Li, you'll never go back.

The Elysium is a very nice case, So the PCX500FX. Are you going to post some pictures when it gets there? With some hard ware?

Wow that is one hell of an upgrade from an Antec 900. Be sure to post pics and congrats on being the owner of one of Li Li's flagship cases!

I love everything about thise case, except the window. I may have to spend the extra $60 to get the x2000f due to that :(.

not entirely... i've had 6 Lian-Li's and the only one i truly cared for was the A05(first rev)
other than that its been all custom since as most cases now days are complete junk unless your spending an insane amount of money.

however i give CM and corsair credit.

Well, it's not going to come out perfect right now simply because I'm using what I have around to build it.There needs to be a bunch of cable routing, sleeving, etc. which I don't have time for because of final exams. There were pc components all over my room (still are) so most of them simply had to go in the case so I could clean up a bit. So I rushed the job a bit. I'll post pictures soon.

I'm still keeping my eye on this case. May consider it if there is a price drop or sale below $300, the same goes for the TJ11.

So I got everything up and running. When finals are over, well...let us just say that I'll be on Nil's website a bunch ;) Here are some pictures of the current setup and one unfortunate usb cable (please excuse the crappy phone camera). I tried fixing the usb cable, and it works, but I kinda want to contant Lian li. What would you guys do?

Yea, I bent it back. I didn't realize they don't have support anymore when I purchased this. I still don't think I could've found a case that fit the bill more, other than having a custom case built for my needs.

Modifications start soon! I think I'll have the only yellow led 140mm fans ;)
