Hello, I'm planning to purchase a Lian Li PC-75 tower case for my new
system that I'm planning to build. I will include the following.

1. MSI K8N Neo4-SLI motherboard
2. AMD Athon 64 3500+ cup (Winchester core)
3. Corsair XPERT TWINXP 1024 3200XL DDR 400 1Gig
4. 2x Chaintech SE6600 Geforce 6600 GT PCIe video cards
5. Silverstone Zeus ST65ZF 650 w PSU
6 2x Western Digital 74D Raptor 74 Gig HDD (Raid 0)
7. Western Digial caviar 74 gigabyte 7200 rpm data backup HDD
8. Plextor PX-716A DVD Writer

I need to know about whether or not I should get certain modifications such
as a blowhole for a 120mm fan in the top of the case. and also whether or
not it would be advisable to get a cutout for a UV fan in the clear acrylic
side panel. Of course I'm concerned about heat build-up inside the case
running a SLI game rig but I've heard that aluminum cases such as the Lian
li PC-75 are good heat dissipaters by themselves so please give me your
input regarding this matter. Your prompt replies will be appreciated.

Thank You

I have that exact case, and absolutely love it. My system temp remains
around 26C, with the stock cooling supplied. I keep my home around 72F.
I do not have an sli setup, I have the K8N Neo2 Platinum Nforce3 setup.

I have the Lian Li PC-60u case with two intake fans bottom front, exit
fan on the top and another at the top of the back panel. I am not
impressed with their fans as they hardly seem to move any air. I find
that by removing the side panel my cpu idles about 10C cooler and I
can reduce the speed of the fan on my cpu which makes my system much
quieter. Yep, quieter with the side panel removed!

The next time I upgrade my system I may replace those case fans.
Don't get me wrong I still love the case!

Hi,
I know you are asking about the case but in regards to your other
spec's....

The tests I have read show that one 6800GT card performs as good or
better than two 6600GT's in SLI mode. Then you could always add a
second 6800GT for even more awesome performance.

Also, while I am sure that the Raptor is a great drive, the new
Seagate 400 7200.8 seems to perform as good or better in a raid0 and
gives you 5 times the capacity for about 60% more money. Newegg has
the OEM Raptor for $175 and OEM 400 7200.8 for $ 285.00 or the 300
7200.8 retail for $ 197.

This article tests the two drives.
