    So thankfully I'm employed again which means it's time for a new build :D I decided to go with a Lian Li A77F due to the sleek and stylish nature of the case, as well as the massive room inside for radiators.

    I will be water cooling everything and I plan to put a 420 rad in the 5.25" bays and a 280 rad up the top. So far all I have is the case, board and fans. Waiting on a lot of parts from overseas as usual, hoping to have everything before November but who knows...

    Here's a quick parts summary:

    Lian Li PC-A77F
    Xeon W3520 #3845B020
    Asus P6T6 WS Revolution
    2x EVGA GTX 480
    Intel 80GB G2 SSD OCZ 120GB RevoDrive
    Corsair 3x2GB DDR3 Dominators Corsair 1866 C7 Dominator GTs
    Corsair AX1200 MDPC-X Sleeved

    Water Cooling:

    Thermochill 140.3 Rad
    HW Labs Black Ice 280 Rad
    2x Aquacomputer Nickel GTX 480 Blocks
    2x Swiftech MCP-355 Pumps with Aquacomputer Dual Pump Top
    Aquacomputer Kryos XT CPU Block
    Mips Asus P6T6 Chipset and Mosfet Blocks
    Mips Ram Block
    Iandh 275mm Stealth Reservoir
    8x Gelid 140MM Fans

    Here are a few quick photo's I took today of what I have at the moment... I'll update with more photo's of gear when I get it :) And some more photo's of the case.

    Good choice on the case :) LL cases are fantastic. 800D and TJ07s are for the fuglies. ;)
    I've the same case, and by experience it's not the most ideal case for WC. You will need some "tweaks" to get things in place. Good luck getting out the plates inside the 5.25" drive bays without some sort of special tool. But it will be rewarding once you have everything fitted.

    Yeah it's nice to do something a bit different, I would never go near an 800d... Haha I'm sure it will have issues a long the way, I'm not looking forward to trying to get that rad in the 5.25" bays.

    Yes this. Once you go lian li you never go back.

    Yeah, looks much better in person. I'll take some better pics of it with the new window side panel when I get it and some pics of the interior.

    Is there a window for it? I thought there was only a window for the earlier model, a77

    Yeah I ordered the one for the earlier model from ppc, I may have to just derivet the padlock clip and not use the power supply hold down bracket to get it to fit. Should be fine from what I've read.

    Yeah I've seen a few builds with this case, so I know you can get it on there with some tiny adjustment, just would have thought that an update would be on the way. never seen one with all 140 rads though, going to be very impressive when you get it all in there.

    haha exactly, all that's missing is Oscar (my dog).

    Yeah I'll go into more detail once the side panel arrives. Well I was going to put a 360 rad in the 5.25" bays as most people do but I saw a guy on xs who put a 140.3 in the 5.25" bays of an Armosuit PC-P80 and seeing as the a77f has the exact same amount of 5.25" bays and is pretty much identical in size it should fit.
