That is one beautiful case. I would love to have it. I'm a total sucker for horizontal cases I guess because I am old enough that my first PC was as such with a 14" CRT on top. I love old Lian Li cases too. I have a Lian Li PC-7B plus II that will get put to use eventually with some retro parts.

Overall nice build! It reminds me of my first modern custom machine I pieced together around 1998-1999. I used a horizontal case from my 286 built in 1991. I had a Asus P5AB with K6-2 400, 192mb of RAM and a Voodoo 3. Those were the days.... I built it to mainly play the crap out of Starsiege Tribes.

Yeah, Once you build in a Lian Li Aluminum case its hard to go back to any other type of case.
I think even todays modern Lian Li cases are popular with computer builders.

But I do love the look of the plain beige cases of the 1980’s and 90’s.
