I love Lian Li cases, my only issue with them is they can sometimes develop a vibrating noise from the fans with it being all aluminium. Great looking build, like to see finished pics with a good wireing job :)

 

Looking at your images, you're either single or have a very laid back mrs :p

For sure!!  :)  

 

But remember, giving money to those who need it is far more satisfactory in general. I have had filling of joy many times when I gave presents to my close friends who couldn't afford something and the expression on their face always makes you happier than anything you can do for yourself ;)

Woo. That's an interesting place for the rad. I've never seen this case before. Looks like it bends the hoses pretty good, no?

It does.. the bigger issue is that I have to be very careful as the hose pushes the memory fins on the left as I close it.. so I have to push the hose with the finger to slide past the fins.. but it's a bit of a price of this design and the form factor I guess. It's fine though.. I am not going to be opening it non stop, so it should be fine.. when it's closed and running the CPU temps on idle are around 39c so it's cooling ok and the hoses don't obstruct the thermal dynamics too much because the air comes out on top.

LOL.. This is so funny.. Did some benchmarking of the new system

 

Maxed out new Mac Pro 12 cores ($9,599.00) benchmark scores

Bozintosh Pro 6-cores (~$1800) benchmark scores:

Screen%20Shot%202014-06-21%20at%207.33.4

Screen%20Shot%202014-06-21%20at%207.39.3

 

The only Mac Pro that is somewhat faster is this maxed out 12-core one because it has 6 more cores but the difference is not really staggering on CPU performance.  Even with this, my config kills maxed out Mac Pro in single threaded performance.

 

Bozintosh Pro :) destroyed other configurations of the new Mac Pro.

SAVINGS: $7800

I knew this machine would be fast but this is just awesome.

The case arrived and this case is so beautiful, brushed anodized aluminum is SO AMAZING and the case is just amazingly small.

 

Nice case, but is there a way to remove the "Lian Li" logo from it? It's just a cheap sounding name.

Yep.. I removed it.. looks much cleaner..
 

You can see it without the logo here:

I put the high quality metal aluminum ASUS ROG logo because most parts are ROG and my other stuff like monitors and stuff are also ASUS.. so I kind of went with the whole theme.
