Lian Li’s Two-faced PC-O9: Two Different Chassis Linked as One

Lian Li’s Two-faced PC-O9: Two Different Chassis Linked as One Latest PC Case Fits Powerful AIO/DIY Water Cooling and Highlights Attractive Components May 11, 2016, Keelung, Taiwan – Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd announces the PC -O9 chassis, the latest in its esteemed O-series open-air chassis. This new mid tower case features a distinctive dual-compartment design: one side uses all aluminum panels, the other is wreathed in beautiful tempered glass. Two Faces, Glass and Aluminum The PC-O9 is split into two sections for optimized cooling, organization, and style – it’s like two different cases fused together as conjoined twins. Similar to the PC-O8, the primary compartment uses two large tempered glass panels spanning the sides of the case to showcase the motherboard, VGA cards, and overall flashiest components. The secondary compartment houses the PSU and drive rack in a windowless aluminum exposure. Both compartments are separated by a band running down the middle of the chassis, which contains the inputs and power button. No other case lets builders isolate different components into organized compartments to this degree. Lian Li’s Best Chassis for Water Cooling The PC-O9 has the most flexible cooling layout in its series. It includes five 120mm fans – two exhaust fans behind the drive cage and three intake fans mounted between the compartments. The top panel in the glass compartment has three additional 120mm fan mounts; both top and bottom panels include r...

Ltd is pleased to announce that it will bring the latest O Series PC-O9, Q series PC-Q34, and new PC-J60 to CeBIT 2016. Lian Li would like to extend an invitation to all to visit its booth (Hall 17, Booth H24/1) to glimpse its exciting new products.

LIAN LI wants Everyone to own a Yacht at CES 2016, Just don’t Put it in the Water

We all learn something new in this business and I just found out that LIAN LI does a special case mod every few years or so. What surprised me was that it was one they sell as well. Needless to say, I was grinning from ear to ear when I walked up to a computer in a boat. Could that be considered ironic? Either way, LIAN LI didn’t just have computer cases shaped like yachts, they had numerous computer cases as well as some other designs that just screamed of top quality. The yacht was easily one of the funnest things I saw at CES. I really think I need a good mini-ITX system just so I can have “fun” builds. I suppose my Lego Tie Fighter will have to suffice for now though. The design was fun, but what really made it pop was the way LIAN LI designed the RGB lighting effects. With a simple knob turn, you can easily set the color of the chassis to what you want, but the yacht may not have been the most impressive thing I saw. The desk that was a computer case was pretty astounding! Some of you might remember LIAN LI doing something like this a while back. This is a redesigned version however, that has some great features. This one is only meant to handle one build, but the airflow is optimized from back to front (or vice-a-versa), has RGB lighting as well, and has a motorized height adjustment with the ability to set up to four presets. Once again, it has a glass top with a smokey tint but the front of the desk cuts out better so your knees have more space th...



Lian Li Introduces the Fanless Micro-ITX PC-Q04 PC Chassis In The US

Lian Li Introduces the Fanless Micro-ITX PC-Q04 PC Chassis In The US A Mini Tower Chassis With Targeted Airflow Vents For Cooling With No Extra Fans January 13, 2016, Keelung, Taiwan – Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd announces the PC-Q04 Mini Tower Chassis for Mini-ITX systems. While not the smallest chassis Lian Li offers, this case gives builders a bit more breathing room without compromising its compact size. The enhanced vents are designed to mitigate any vibration or noise from case fans and maximize the cooling performance of the internal components themselves. The PC-Q04 employs both its floor and roof space for drive mounting, doing away with externally facing bays for improved airflow. Vents Not Fans One of the biggest features of the PC-Q04 is its vents – they are the only things that could be described as “big” on this case. The large side vent lets the PSU draw and vent out its own air to work as efficiently as possible. Meanwhile, the bottom left and right vents as well as the entire floor panel allow the GPU to take in air as needed while giving the CPU enough room to breath. The rear panel is another large vent to let warm air escape. Tall rubber feet prevent vibrations and suspend the case to let air flow readily through the bottom vent. Construction and Layout The PC-Q04 uses a familiar Lian Li vertical-mounted Mini ITX system layout. A full ATX size PSU of up to 160mm is mounted opposite the CPU, giving a full 70mm clearance for coolers. Video card...



Lian Li Announces The CB-01 CPU Water Cooling Block In The US

Lian Li Announces The CB-01 CPU Water Cooling Block In The US Lian Li Style and Craftsmanship Brought To DIY Water Cooling Enthusiasts November 5, 2015, Keelung, Taiwan – Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd announces the CB-01 CPU Water Block. Manufactured by Lian Li in partnership with cooling experts from Overclockers, UK, a world-record overclocking team, this is Lian Li’s first water block ever. With their passion for quality materials, the CB-01 is made to the same exacting standards as Lian Li’s outstanding cases. The cold plate has a heart of solid copper in a nickel coating and a final layer of tin-cobalt for extra cooling, durability, and corrosion resistance. The top is a translucent acrylic block that visibly guides the cooling waters through the microchannels. The simple yet sturdy mounting fits virtually all modern and past motherboard sockets securely. For a bit of flare, there are holes pre-drilled for 5mm LED lights. Ultra Thin Microchannels for Targeted Cooling and Water Flow The CB-01 uses a standard G1/4” thread so most DIY water cooling components will easily fit the inlet and outlet ports. The inlet is deliberately offset against the outlet to allow the coolest water to enter the block in direct contact with the middle of the hottest CPU core. It then flows across the other cores and vents on the opposite side. The microchannels have an area of 32.2mm by 27.3mm but because they are contoured with precision grooves, they provide a greater ove...



Lian Li Announces The PC-18 Mid Tower Chassis in the US

Lian Li Announces The PC-18 Mid Tower Chassis in the US A Mid Tower Case With a Short Name, Big Interior, and an Internal Fan/Radiator Mount October 15, 2015, Keelung, Taiwan – Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd announces the PC-18 mid tower chassis: designed to feel compact while fitting powerful air and water cooling options inside. The interior arranges the components along the inner wall, leaving the center of the case open for the custom-built swing-out fan bracket that improves cooling performance.

The porous mesh screen does not restrict airflow to the included pair of 120mm fans, keeping them clean and efficient in use. Combined with the included top 140mm fan, this case easily maintains positive air pressure and keeps all dust out. The side vent fans are the wild card; they give the flexibility to change the airflow depending on the build. Up to two additional 140mm or three 120mm fans can be installed in push or pull as needed. The bracket can also be used to mount a watercooling radiato...
