While we have the makings of an outstanding addition to our system so far, there are still a couple of other items to make this case stand out from the crowd. Sometimes it is the little things that can make the biggest difference.
If you'll think about your normal enclosure, you'll recall that there are generally some threaded holes located all over the bottom of the motherboard tray. These holes are for adding standoffs to the system so that you can mount the mainboard into the box. Now think of how many times that you have removed the screws from this same motherboard only to have the brass standoff still attached to the screw and this whole mess hanging from the bottom of the board. I know that it has happened to me before, but there is a way to conquer this trivial nuisance.
Take notice that the holes in the tray above are not round, but square. The reason behind this is that they use a different type of standoff. Let me show you what I mean:
The standoff is added by simply pushing it through the back of the motherboard tray. Make sure that you bring it in from the back, though, or you will likely ruin a standoff. If you squeeze the prongs together, they will stay in that position and you won't get a good mount to work from. By bringing it in from the backside, it will seat itself and then lock in.
But wait, how can you get the standoffs mounted from the backside?
Can you say removable motherboard tray? After using the Antec line of cases for several years, I have always been happy with their performance. But the one thing that I almost always desired from them was a removable tray. It seems that the folks at Lian-Li feel the same way and have created this design with this thought in mind.
And not only that, but if you look closely, you'll see that not only does the motherboard tray come out, but the entire back panel as well. This makes it an absolute breeze to install the motherboard and then all of your AGP/PCI cards also. After everything is in its place, just slide the tray back into its home and you're set.
