Lian Li presents the PC-90
Lian Li has just presented the PC-90 series, a full tower size desktop chassis for your home computer.
This new case is capable of holding up to 6 x 3.5-inch HDD on the front face of the tray and more 6 x 2.5-inch HDD on the backside of the same tray. This tray system is placed on top of the system (check the gallery to see it in action) leaving all the space inside to the motherboard, PSU, graphic cards, and water-cooling system (the chassis is also equipped with two holes on the back side to allow the installation of an outside radiator).
This new case is cooled by dual 140mm on the front (with filter protection) and a 120mm exhaust fan.
There’s no doubt that there will be plenty of space to store not only a water-cooling kit inside, but also plenty of space to do some nice cable management, which so important these days.
No word on pricing yet for this new chassis.
Instead of standard HDD cages that obstruct internal air-flow, the PC-90′s HDD drives are mounted vertically on two trays inside the left side panel. This way, the entire back of the case can be used to hold the motherboard, even enabling a larger HPTX or server motherboard to fit into the standard, full-tower chassis.
The Lian Li PC-90 offers the advantage of two 140mm front fans blowing cool air directly and unrestricted over the motherboard and VGA card to the rear 120mm fan. Its sturdy HDD trays on the side of the case lock firmly into place in order to avoid vibration. Nonetheless, the trays can be easily removed via thumbscrew, allowing for easy installation of three 3.5” HDDs in the front and three more 2.5” drives on the back of the two trays, for a total of 12 HDD drives for the entire system. Thanks to the chassis design without HDD cages, ‘The Hammer’ supports video cards up to 400mm length and also offers a tool-less graphics card holder. To support modern motherboards and avoid having to use external connectors, the case is equipped with USB 3.0 for 20-pin connector.
Rounding out the Lian Li PC-90′s superior features are its cable organization system and liquid cooling holes. Washable air filters offer easy-to-remove, and recyclable, computer protection.
The essence of Lian Li is the craftsmanship of the engineering. Intrinsic to the workmanship and quality of Lian Li’s products is their customization capabilities, which include a whole host of optional extras that can be added to an already feature rich product.
