not sure what this has to do with my question.
I just can't figure out why you'd pay lots of money for mITX and them put it in a box the same size as a (conceivably) less pricey uATX. If you're not trying to build a tiny machine, use a larger board which (generally) has more features at a cheaper price. To me, it's like putting off road tires on a Prius.
Whatever -- if it makes someone happy, who am I to judge?

heard so many good things about this case, and was looking to do a build with it
do you happen to have a link for the white case? been waiting a little while to see if the white has any sales

PC-Q25 is what I'd get, but at $60 this is worth considering.
I still think it's too large for what you're getting. You can do the same in a PC-Q08. Not to sound like a Lian Li nut, but I wish that space was justifiable. We're talking about ITX, space is supposed to matter. Granted some of the wasted space is the handles.
However, I think the market for this is someone who wants no compromises gaming. That is huge tower cooler for the CPU or probably liquid cooling for both cpu and gpu. This is the only case that can do that at this "small" of a size.

I prefer the Lian-Li ITX cases in terms of styling. The PC-A08 holds 6x 3.5in drives, at least 1 2.5 in drive, and a 5.25in drive while leaving room for a full sized PSU. Alternatively, you can fit a full sized GPU at the expense of 2 3.5 in drive bays.
There's also the PC-Q25 that's probably better for a file server with the internal hot-swap bays. That case will take 7 3.5in drives, with 5 of those bays on a hot-swap backplane.
They're a bit more expensive, but I think they don't look as garish as the Bitfenix.

im liking this. any reason that this is NOT a good HTPC/media server case?
im thinking about pulling the trigger. any reason to wait? ive never even seen this case before.
i want to be able to put an ivy bridge in it. is ivy bridge powerful enough to run large video formats. would it be necessary to get a video card?

|artvscommerce||I love this chassis. I wish amazon would price match. I have gift cards i'd like to use up.|

Great case. It is HUGE for an itx case but it can do and hold alot. If ur looking for htpc it is 2 big for a living room but if u want a gaming rig you can put whatever you want in there. Air or water cooled cpu. Full size cards a ton of drives and a ton of fans. It does wobble a ton if you touch it.
I have had it set up for a week and love it. I am installing a water cooler for my cpu 2night. Great price.

Waited long enough
Been looking for one in stock and on SALE now even with free shipping.
I got one, if your new to the case check out tech reviews. To me this case can do it all.

|n30||mark the zotac boards off your list (if you were considering them). hardware raid = terrible and you'll be replacing the wireless module for something better in the long run.|

|abcxyz||Can we buy any motherboard and put it in this case like every other case?|
|10-03-2012 06:23 PM|
This works as htpc, lite server, gaming, or all three with the right motherboard. Another 6 expansion slots would be pointless.
