What do you guys think of the lian li A70?

I can fit a 360 rad at the top,and 2x240 rads "sandwhiched" together in a push/pull style where the hard drive caddy would be. The 2x240's would be for cooling the Gpu only.im aware that only 1 240 rad would be of use,but im using photo editing,and atm with my current set up,its using alot of the gpu,so the temps are quiet hot.so i figure 2 would be better,if i enclose it so cool air comes from the sides,or under side,so cool air is only going to cool it.get me?

http://forum.waterco...read.php?t=2354 this is where i seen it :)

If you were going for the lian li a77 (which is a fit case) there is a new a77f out which looks much smarter. I picked the atcs 840 in the end as its wider, deeper and requires less modding than the lian li's.

the a77f is a good case,it'll be a call between the a77 and the a70.over price,the a70 would be better and i could probably get it at a fraction of the cost :)plus modding it,i'd rather have a cheaper case :)
