Does anyone know if the Lian Li (full tower) would be able to go through powdercoating? I am unsure if they have alot of plastic on them, but if so, can all of the plastic parts be removed and put back on afterwords? Also, does anyone know what all plastic parts are on it?

beautiful dude, damn I'm jealous :P





and Lian-Li's are generally All aluminum from my understanding. Though I would question the case's durability from the standpoint that many of the aluminum parts may warp under the 400 degree curing temps required in powdercoating.


who knows, I'm probobly wrong, but some of the parts of my case warped slightly, and this baby is all steel.

Most people only powder coat the inside of cases.

Thats all i've ever seen powder coated.

Hmmm I dunno what to do... I wan't to be able to do watercooling in a case in the future, but I'm unsure which one I should get... If I got a lian li, would the 60's have enough room for a WC setup? or would I have to do a 70??? Because right now it looks like im doing lian li or chieftec.. but the lian li looks so much nicer because of the all aluminum...

It's a CRIME telling something like that and not showing a picture!

Was just going to ask though, if you had any peticular preference for matching plastic bezels and the like to the powdercoat of the case, in terms of Paint that is.
