Lian-Li launches the all new Tyr X2000 HTPC/Gaming Chassis

Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd has launched the Tyr X2000 chassis designed to stand out in your living room in absolute Lian Li style. Taking the original concept of low profile and slim designs and turning it completely around; there is no hiding of this case as it proudly resembles multimedia speakers, and emblazons your fashion sense in style. The Tyr X2000 is aligned to become the most unique HTPC/Gaming Chassis on the market today allowing unprecedented high performance components to be encompassed in the home theatre environment without compromising on looks and appeal. The stylish and unique side panels accept 2x 5.25” Optical Device Drives and one 3.5” drive, which are accessible from either the left or right side, while the front face is for ergonomics and airflow. The 6x hot swap RAID SATA HDD bays can contain terabytes of multimedia for your viewing pleasure while the spaciously zoned interior can accommodate virtually any system you can think of.


Lian Li is well known for craftsmanship and quality, and the Tyr X2000 is no exception. Showcasing the new style, with an all black anodized interior, an easily removable front panel which covers 3x 140mm silent intake fans, protected by the removable and washable nylon dust cover. The top mounted multimedia ports include 4x USB 2.0 ports, 1x Firewire (IEEE1394), 1x E-SATA, and HD AC97 Audio ports. The patented tool-less latch allows easy access to the compartmented heat zones inside with a special VGA support bar to give added rigidity to extra long VGA cards. Other traditional Lian Li innovations have been improved upon such as the removable motherboard tray with holes for better CPU cooling and added anti-vibration couplings, as well as the specially filed and brushed finish to reduce sharp edges giving the case both style, and an aspect of safety.

More features include support for Extended ATX, ATX, and Micro-ATX motherboards, 8x PCI slots, water cooling support, 1x 140mm silent exhaust fan for the motherboard heat zone, 2x 80mm exhaust fans for the HDD bay heat zone and further support for 2x PSU’s (220mm long supported) with anti-vibration and insulated rubber strips on the mounting platforms. Specialized HDD mounting racks (supports 6x HDDs) with special handles which are attached to protect your HDD’s, while keeping them vibration free in their bay. The SATA back panel is a hot swap device which can support RAID 0 & 1.
The case was designed with silence in mind, so specialized sound insulation material combines with the 2mm thick aluminum alloy side panels to keep your system whisper quiet. Taking things to the extreme in comfort and convenience, Lian Li mounts the case on rubber pads to minimize any vibrations that could add to noise. Additional touches include vented PCI brackets which add to through flow of air and prevent heat buildup.
The essence of Lian-Li products is the craftsmanship of the engineering. Intrinsic to the workmanship and quality is the customization which includes a whole host of optional extras that can be purchased to add more features to an already feature rich product.Source: Lian-Li

That really is nice, if only they could make it the same dimensions as the PC-A05B.

So freakin' big!

i dont know how i feel about an HTPC that stands. I would much rather stick to an HTPC that fits nicely ontop of my receiver.

You hope it doesn't cost too much. :shakinghead:

As it's Lian Li, shops will bump the price up so expect it to cost a far bit. I'd be surprised if we see for less than £100 here in crappy ol' Blightly.

The red spider case they do for AMD is like $700.00 USD so expect it to be close to that. I like the case, but I dont see it for HTPC. Lets hope Lian Li is a case manufacturer who actually does right by the rigid VGA bar. No one seems to have gotten that right yet.
