Windows 7: Lian Li v1000z case - anyone have thoughts

Lian Li v1000z case - anyone have thoughts

I just told a guy I would buy this case from him for about half of what they cost on Newegg. And it's not even used. He took it out of the box a year ago and it's been in his garage ever since. I jumped on it. Looks VERY nice. Just the front panel has esata, firewire, 4 USB, etc. That's cool.

Do any of you have this case. I notice everything is great but I don't understand the "hot swapping PCB boards" on the back of the HD cages. Do I "have" to use them? I have an SSD and it will not fit. I will be installing at least 3 640GB normal drives so it should be fine for those. Other than that I saw nothing bad (except bottom wheels I will probably remove)

Any complaints about this case or does anyone see anything bad about it?
(besides the wheels on the bottom (they come with rubber and are lockable) but it looks like a good case. Anyone have one?

They are hot swappable - meaning if you set up RAID with hot swapping, you can use them. That does not mean you *have* to hot swap - only that it is available.

now, if you mean if that is the only way to connect the drives, then I believe that is going to be the only way to use them, but I am not 100% sure.

Thanks Johngalt. I looked around for 2 days before I purchased the case. I found out I can take them out with 3 srcews if I don't want to use them so.....

They will be nice when I get raid going....however I don't see how I can use them with SSDs. Nice case though.

The more I look at this case, the more I love it. If it didn't have the wheels it would be about perfect! (for me) I can't wait to pick it up tonight!
