Lian Li PC-A7010
Final Thoughts & Summary
This case will put a smile on any gamer or enthusiast’s face, it has enough room to fit all of today’s hardware and future hardware. It can hold up to 10Tb hard drives with 7 installed in the Hot Swap drive bays, and 3 in the top rear HDD cage, and with that amount of storage you could even use this as a server case when you think about it.
The way in which the Hot Swap bays are set up will help reduce the number of cables that can be seen, which is something we all should be fortunate enough to have in our case. There is more than enough room for a water cooling set up, and the A7010 is even light enough to take to a LAN party, though it is rather tall. Even with all six fans set to high, this case is still very quiet, and the fans pushed a good amount of air throughout the A7010 and its vented expansion slot covers.
It is very hard to find any fault with this case, but if I had to pick on something, it would be easier access to the fan controller, as the access to change the speeds was quite awkward and cumbersome.? There must be a better design solution than what is currently used here.
The Lian Li PC-A7010 is a superb case, the all-aluminum construction and attention to details are second to none. The sleek minimalist look is a design exercise in tasteful restraint and while the $300 price tag isn’t cheap, quality like this does come at a premium. Mind you, this is probably the last case you’ll ever need to own and we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the Lian Li PC-A7010 as a top case of choice here.
