    You've misread. If you fit one of the optional fans in one position you will struggle (and with the fans you have in this case I can't see why), but you can move the mounting anyway.

    The Phoong as a stop gap for the Lian Li or go the Mirage now.

    I just built my new system based on the Lian Li A10B with 8800GTX and the Abit AW9D Max mobo. It fits perfectly, the 8800 still has quite a few centimetres clearance. The exhaust fan above the 8800 pumps out a lot of the excess heat that the 8800 produces. Idles at 52 with the fan 58 without.
    I have also built a similar system for a m8 with the mirage of the 2 the Lian is better both in quality and ease of build.
    However £186 for a case I must have been mad

    One provision if you ever end up buying the Lian li dont get the Striker 680i there is not enough clearance for the top blower fan and the mosfet passive cooling on the mobo.
