    Look gorgeous and sounds like it'll be a great case. Bit pricey though.

    If I am not mistaken, it also comes with an interior lamp doesn't it? Can be handy when working under the desk, though perhaps not £30 handy Do you know of any fans that would fit on the lower cage (i.e. 20mm)?

    I don't unfortunatly. I can't remember who it was but someone on here posted a link or has done the mod to allow a normal fan. It's not a big job from memory.

    The entire thing just reeks of quality and was a joy to work with.

    I'd highly recommend it to anyone. It is on the higher end of the pricing spectrum but it's worth every penny.
    i got my eyes and debit card set for that lovely case! wil be ordering it next month!

    Anything that requires more than cutting cardboard is probably too big of a job for me lol.

    I wonder how Lian-Li managed to become such a serious player today, when years ago, it was widely seen as the 'poor man's Cooler Master'.

    Probably by making their cases conservative but classy to the eye, while CoolerMaster went off and, for everything but the WaveMaster went for aggressive aesthetics and 10min after launch they all just looked tacky, in my opinion.

    Most of their cases still do. The more recent Stackers aren't too bad (don't like mesh fronts personally, but that's a relatively minor niggle), but both Lian-Li and most Silverstones are miles and miles ahead with regards to looks, as are the Antec P18x series (don't like the P190 - it's just another mesh front ).

    Just went for the A70b over the A71b as I didn't want a door, and to be honest, the 5 5.25" drive bays aren't quite enough for me - 7 would have been ideal.

    Re: What to do with....

    My mate has the Silverstone TJ-09 which is rediculously high quality but for the price I think the ante P182 offers the best value of money, especially when you consider how quiet you can get them.

    I'm get to see an alimnium case to match it on noise but then I havn't tried myself yet.. I will soon remedy that with my Eclipse
