Lian-Li Debuts Two New Full Tower Cases - PC-A75X and PC-A76X

Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd, today announces two new brushed aluminum full tower chassis – PC-A75X & PC-A76X. These two new HPTX supporting chassis while having the same internal design offer two different aesthetic styles to fit your personal preference. Whether you prefer a front panel with visible ventilation or a more monolithic design, these two new 585 mm (23”) tall and 220 mm (8.6”) wide chassis will fit your style while holding the hardware you desire.

The PC-A75X's vented front panel allows cool air to be easily pulled into the chassis, and the two 5.25” bays are easily accessible from the front. The front panel of the PC-A75X is also tool-lessly removable. For those who prefer a more monolithic design, the PC-A76X has a lockable solid aluminum front bezel door covering the fans and 5.25” bays. Vents on the side of the door and bottom of the chassis ensure that cool air is pulled into the case, while still keeping its elegant design.

Hardware Capabilities
The hardware capabilities of the PC-A75X and PC-A76X are identical and staggering. Both of these HPTX supporting cases can hold up to twelve 3.5” HDDs and up to three 2.5” SSDs using the 3.5” bays. The drives are easily installed thanks to included anti-vibration mounts and a tool-less sliding lock to fix the hard drives into position.

Three 140mm fans blow cool air directly across the hard drive bay, and a 120mm fan at the rear of the chassis pulls the hot air out. The PC-A75X and PC-A76X both have the capabilities for two 120mm fans on the top and the side of the chassis for DIY builders looking for even more cooling options. Water cooling is also supported with two rubber grommets in the rear. These two new full tower Lian Li cases both have eleven expansion slots and can hold expansion cards up to 360mm (14.1”) in length. An arm helps to stabilize and secure longer, heavier expansion cards. CPU coolers up to 170mm high are supported, and the motherboard tray has a large CPU cutout so to support CPU cooler backplates. Additionally, several rubber grommets on the tray allow for simplified cable management. Power supplies up to 360mm (14.1”) in length can be placed in the bottom compartment. Ventilation slits underneath the PSU with a removable pull-out filter help increase the life and performance of the power supply. There are two USB 3.0, two USB 2.0 and HD audio ports on the I/O panel located on the top of the chassis so not to take away from the sleek styles.

The PC-A75X and PC-A76X both come in black, inside and out, for the suggested retail price of US$199 and US$219, respectively (tax not included).

If only there was a tiny bit of room between the top 140mm and the 5.25" bays for a radiator..

Seriously nice case though, seems these days only Lian Li and Fractal interest me.

Interesting, nice design and finish. Gotta love the minimalistic designs of Lian-Li.

Is it me, or is the rear fan on the last picture oriented as an intake fan? Even though Lian-Li planned it as an exhaust fan. Obviously it would be easy to fix though.

Lookin' good.
Good to see Lian Li keeps on making sleek masterpieces and not just silly squid-look-a-like and other non-conventional cases.


Would be REALLY nice if they'd make a midi tower version of PC-A75X sans the 5.25" slots.

Now this Lian-Li I like! I usually don't like the inside of Lian-Li cases, but this one has a black interior and I like it a lot! To bad it wont fit on my desk. It's about 2" taller than my current case which is a mid tower, the other specs are about the same.

Nice.

I like how they made the HD rack compatible with their backplanes, but didn't included them. Keeps the cost down if you didn't plan on having many drives, or if you're going to remove the rack altogether and install a 3 x 140mm rad.

I don't think there's enough space for the tube holes...

i know that some cases are made better than others, but i feel like i would be splurging if i spent $200 on a case.

Yeah, it may or may not have enough room. Looks "close enough" to possibly squeeze one in. But if need be, could take out the 5.25" bays.

But you might hold on to it longer than the others? I've had my PC-A17B for four and a half years. Still a good case, the only thing that would get me to switch now is if the upcoming Caselabs SM5 (5 slot mATX) is as awesome as I know it's going to be.

I like both of them. One thing is missing, however. Their badass tool-less PCI mounting system. I've always loved those pressure clamps. I see there is space and holes drilled to add them in, if you like, but would like to see the chassis come with them. Also, like the way they've designed the top I/O panel to slide in. Nifty!

Seriously. I'm debating if my radiator will still fit up there. Also, I read the only review on this case done by AnAndTech, and the hard drive bays are irremovable, so putting the radiator in the front isn't an option.

I feel that so many failed ideas went into this case when this would of been the perfect case or me. It's exactly what I'm looking for as far as the number of HDD slots, a flat-faced front panel, sleek, good looking, and professional (none of that "I'm a gamer look," though it will be a high end i7 GTX 780 build).
