The PC-A16 is typical Lian-Li. Excellent design, top quality materials, and workmanship second to none. The case was easy to work in with good to very good cooling. Lian-Li has really addressed noise in all the key areas with rubber isolation mounts on the fans, the fan shroud, and the HDD mounts which make the case itself exceptionally quiet.
The fan mounted at a right angle to the add in card area really does its job without any extra effort on the user's part. Provisions for mounting a 120mm radiator make the hardest part of adding water cooling to your rig downright painless. Even if you don't intend to water cool, the 120mm rear mounted fan is going to help your air cooled CPU sink a great deal.
The "aesthetic" is, of course, in the eye of the beholder; but, I personally love the clean classic look of this case because it will never go out of vogue and looks like it should cost a lot more then its $159 price tag. The closest thing I have to a complaint is the negligible value of the motherboard tray; however, it doesn't hurt the overall performance of this excellent case in any way. If you're looking for an excellent, smaller, all aluminum, mid tower in black or silver, add the Lian-Li PC-A16 to your short list as I would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone. Worship Worthy hardware without a doubt.
