This is what the case looked like new.

and the MB side looks the same.

The I/O side new.


And the way i bought the case for $25.00. With the window already cut
and no hardware,lower HDD bay's,and fans.


My first thought when i seen the case was liquid cooling. I know there is a lot of parts
you can buy for these cases but they cost on the avg. $50 so ill do my own mods.

My first mod was to relocate the PSU to make room for a 4x120mm. radiator
at the bottom of the case under the MB tray.

I just mad a template from the orgional PSU cut-out, used masking tape over the new
PSU location before i started cutting with my Dremel to save on scratches from human error. I used a 80mm. fan filter to cover part of the old PSU cutout. that was for mock up im gonna do somthing a little better when i get the idea.lol

And the backside cut out for the 4x120mm. radiator to exaust out of the case.


And a inside look, I did get the specks for the The Koollance EHX-1320 is a dual-pass, quad-120mm fan heat exchanger, rated to about 1300W of heat dissipation from their website before i did any cutting. More than what i need at the moment to just cool a CPU, but enough there to cool 3 or 4 GFX cards also in the future.

Backside view
Finally got one rad in 3x120mm.

I used 3/16x1/2" aluminum flat bar from the local hardware store to use for a mount.

Inside view

I also have a 120mm.x1 rad. for the GFX cards for a later mod to be placed
where the lower 120mm. fan located.

Finally got my MB in,pined it in place and did a partial mock up on the PSU to check wire length and some ideas for wire management before i start plumbing for liquid.
Wow the MB looks so small in the Lan Li case compared to the Antec 900 case.

Some plumbing mock-up

The radiator and PSU have been a PITA for wire management.


The box to the right of the PSU is to hold the other 4 rails i dont need ATM and keep the dust out of the ratsnest that this non modular beast has. the box can be found @ the electro Shack* scatterd scroo the us for about $4.
