Lian Li @ CES 2013
Lian Li was at CES once again this year and they brought a few interesting chassis to the show. By interesting, I mean a beast, a thermal guru and a train. Let's start with the beast. The PC-D8000. This case supposts the largest motherboards possible and complies to the HPTX standard. Even with a motherboard as large as 15" x 13.6", you still will have room for 20 (that's right, twenty) 3.5" HDDs. In addition to that, it has four USB 3.0 ports on the front and all of the other awesome features we've come to expect from the all-aluminum case manufacturer, Lian Li.
The PC-V850 is a case that is coming in the near future (hopefully) and it offers the standard Lian Li quality with a bit of a different way to manage thermal issues. Once the side panel is on, the air intake comes from the rear and the deflector ensures that you are not sucking in hot air from the rear exhaust. The chassis is sectioned off into several areas that are compartmentalized so that different components don't heat up each other.
The last and oddest thing that we've seen from Lian Li is the train PC case. We've seen some pretty odd cases, that included sea shells, horses and a yeti, but we've never seen a moving train PC. There is not much else to be said about this.
