Mikhailtech has 2 reviews for you today with the first being on the Crystal Clear Blue LED Fans.

The fan itself is a ball bearing model, which means extended life when compared to its sleeve bearing brethren. It is very quiet to my ear, much quieter than my Antec Blue LED fans which surprised me greatly. The two LEDs are mounted in the hub of the fan. The light from the LEDs is focused forward of the fan and each LED is very bright. The only negative of this is that the fan focuses almost no light to the rear.
The second review is on the Lian Li PC-6087A Aluminum Case.
Everything is secured using thumbscrews which earns much cool points in my book. From the top down we have the removable PSU cover followed by the slide-out motherboard tray. On the left is a somewhat thin I/O panel that has enough holes to fit most motherboards. To the right is the 80mm exhaust fan behind a pretty restrictive fan grill cutout. Much like they pioneered the aluminum case market, Lian Li should promote the use of screw-on chrome grills on all their cases; they look nice, are removable (for cleaning, replacement, etc) and don't block so much airflow. Furthermore, shifting it up slightly (or making the case just a tad bit taller) in future revisions would allow for the use of a secondary exhaust fan, which would be quite helpful. The case comes with seven PCI tabs already in place; these too are held stationary by thumbscrews.
