CES 2008: Lian Li

by Nate Marion on January 17, 2008 in Trade Shows

Lian Li’s booth always attracts a lot of attention from the press. Who doesn’t love those sleek and stylish cases? We are taking a look at their entire new line-up, which even includes a replacement chassis for your Xbox 360. Yes, you read that right.

Lian Li had quite a bit on display, including the better portion of their case lineup and accessories, and a new series of power supplies that is yet to be released. The pictures tell the tale.

Here are the new ‘Armorsuit’ cases designed to accommodate the enormous space requirements and heat loads of Quad GPU systems. The larger case, the PC-P80, has three 140mm fans in front and one in the top.

The smaller, PC-P60 case uses 120mm fans in front, and one 140mm fan in the top. Both use a 120mm exhaust fan. Optional side panel windows will be available when the cases hit the market, which should be in less than 2 months.

Those of you with an Xbox 360 that managed to outlive its warranty may be pleased to see that Lian Li has thought of you.

That’s right, those of you looking for a more stylish and cooling capable enclosure for your Xbox360 need look no further than this case, which is also about 2 months away. On the small form-factor and HTPC front, we were happy to see quite a few options.

On the right are the PC-C30 versions, on the left, a mystery.

The PC-C35 uATX case with interchangeable back plates for use with either short PCI cards or a riser card. You can see the outside of the case on the left in the second picture.

The new PC-A01 series.

On the left is the new PC-A59, in the center is everyone’s favorite PC-A05, and on the right is the new PC-A06. The full tower cases were also fully represented.

From the PC-A06 moving left are the PC-A09 and a slightly modified version of the PC-A16 without the 120mm sized front bezel.

The PC-A70 is on the left, with both PCA71 models on the right.

Here from the left is the familiar PC-V2100, another PC-A70, and the very well known PC-V1000. Lian Li also informed us that they’ll be releasing a complete lineup of power supplies in March (April), ranging from 450W to at least 1000W.

We’re glad to see that Lian Li is continuing to develop its line of smaller form factor cases, considering the ever increasing popularity of media PCs, and the success of the A05 in particular. The choice to use 140mm fans is also interesting because it potentially allows users to use slower fans without sacrificing air flow. We’ll be curious to see how well the PC-P80 case does on the market.
