My System Specs

Default New Lian-Li Cases - HTPC, USB3, More!

V:352 - Updated V-351 design with USB3 and an added 80mm fan:
Lian Li Industrial Co., Ltd.



PC-Q08 - Update PC-Q07 design with an added 140mm fan, AND a 120mm top fan:

- Could be the best SFF PC ever IMO. I'd definitely consider one for my next customer HTPC/SFF build.



PC-Q06 - The oddball : Case for Psu, Optical and HDD but with an exposed techstation-styled ITX up top.
Lian Li Industrial Co., Ltd.


PC-X900 - Updated X500 with USB3, All the toolless options from their newer Lancool cases
Lian Li Industrial Co., Ltd.



And for my fellow X2000 lovers - A windowed side-panel! (Which I which I had the option to get in the first place, lol)
Lian Li Industrial Co., Ltd.

As with lian li, I expect no less in terms of design and quality, however, I must say, I am rather disappointed with their recent line-up.

The V352 looks horrific compared to V351-V350.

The Q08 will be a success amongst SFF users, though it is rather large compared to other offerings, such as the upcoming silverstone SG-07. On a brighter note, I expect the cooling on this case to be far superior than most SFF cases.

The Q06 Im afraid I dont understand, as with any other open bench ITX case (the lian li spider/skeleton), is there a need for the case to be open bench? I mean, why go through all the trouble of encasing the PSU, HDD, ODD and just leave the mobo exposed, is there really a market for open bench ITX cases?

X900 - Is this a replacement, or an addition to the PC-X lineup? I see no need for it with the X1000/X500 out there.
