I'm curious if this case will be able to cool all my components safely in my new workstation build? Mounting 1 H80 at the back 120mm port and one in the upper 140mm port with an adapter. With the side blowing fan array over the hard drives I'm concerned about the video cards heat level and airflow.
Lian Li PCZ70
1 Asus Z9PE-D8-WS Mobo 2 Intel Xeon E5-2687W 2 Corsair H80s 32GB of ram 9 hard drives 2 SSDs 3 Galaxy GTX 680 4GB 1 Areca Raid card 1 Blackmagic DeckLink 1 Blu-ray burner 1 Enermax Maxrevo 1350 PSU
Would love to hear people's thought and if I should ship this case back when I get it this week. As an alternate I'm considering the Lian Li PC-A77F (Silver version) and as a last resort the more garish racy Cosmos 2. Don't get me wrong the cosmos is awesome...just not the most professional and clean workstation case....plus it's huge.

This case has excellent cooling.
Amazing build quality, ton of space.
Everything stay nice and cool. The case and fans are much quieter than than the coolermaster 590/(2)8-bay esata cages that they replaced.
Lian Li also does a great job of including just about everything you'll need from tons of different types of case and motherboard thumb screws to usb 3.0 to 2.0 interfaces to wiring organizers.
