Lian Li PC-7 Plus alternatives?

Hi, having read the forums for quite a while i always knew that the Lian Li PC-7 Plus would be the case for me after reading some of the problem the Antec P180 had with airflow and the fact the Eclipse is just too on the expensive side for me, and doesn't have a front headphone socket (It's a small thing, but it's essential for me).

But the Lian Li PC-7 has been out of stock as long as i can remember, with the date for new stock always seeming to be the day after.

So my question is 2 fold:

1) Does anyone have a date for when the PC-7 is back in stock (i meant to phone the sales line but forgot :()

and 2) If it's not in stock for the indefinite future, what other case would offer me similar quality?

I'd stretch to £70 for a case i think, fans included, and not the Antec Nine Hundred please, it's a little too garish for my tastes.

Any suggestions and advice greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

To be honest the best thing to do is to call OcUK tomorrow and ask them, you do want this case, it's the best case for sub £100.

You do really, really, really want this case and will wait till they are in stock. :)

:D

Hehe, it's just sort of a worst case scenario really, i'd like to get my new PC ordered tomorrow (i would have gotten it earlier this week, cheque isn't clearing till tomorrow, so i missed out on the sweet this week only deal on that Geil ULL :() so if they're still not in i'd really like to have a option.

But looking around it seems to be in a class of it's own.

Hey, i take it you're waiting for the Black version then? The alu brushed model has been well stocked for a while as i've been erming and arring over the case until now when i recently bought one. It really is a cracking case, i was so surprised at how light it is compared to other cases i've had (such as a silverstone TJ05).

Currently starting work on my mod on the case too, there are so many little things you can do with it. So if you get the niggle to play around with it then i would wait for this case :)

Lol, i almost feel like i've taken a part in stopping you from building your new system by ordering the case! I've got to admit, i wanted the black one too but i kept waiting and it never came in stock.

I might just have to order it seperately from another site, it seems there really is nothing that is a decent rival too it from what i've read.

It's always a pain ordering from multiple places though, so i hope the in stock date is right. :D

They sell out pretty fast when they do come in.

Remember the comments on it being a PC7+II (2x 120mm) are not always valid depending on the age of other retailers stock. You really need the +II version or a PC7aSE.

Phone OcUK up and get more acurate information on the stock, then order it as soon as it comes in!

Zen, Eclipse and PC7+ are always selling out, says something!

Well the Black ones have come in stock at last, but my cheque hasn't cleared. :mad:

So i've just ordered to the case by itself as i do have the money for that and will just have to order the rest of my stuff seperately.
