    Lian Li Industrial Co. Ltd, maker of high-end, all-aluminum computer chassis since 1983, today launches three new computer cases: The mid-tower PC-Z60, the full-tower PC-Z70, and the full-tower PC-P80N inspired by Lian Li's classic Armorsuit PC-P80, released in 2008. All three cases are made with Lian Li's trademark features like tool-less installations for HDDs, ODDs, PSUs, graphics cards etc., washable air-filters over fans, anti-vibration mounts, cable clamps for organization, ventilation for improved air flow, USB 3.0, fan speed controllers, rubber-ringed holes for LCS, and of course all-black anodized aluminum. These high-end, fantastically designed, all-black PC chassis are now available.

    PC-P80N
    Users can choose to mount HPTX, EATX, ATX, Micro-ATX or Mini-ITX motherboards in this full-tower PC case. With eleven ventilated expansion slots, users can mount graphics cards as long as 390mm long. Components are kept cool by no less then six fans. Three 140mm fans that span the entire height of the front panel pull cool air into the chassis. Two 140mm fans on the top panel and one 120mm fan at the top of the rear panel blow heated air out of the case. For thermal-optimization, the front panel intake fans are hinged and directly in front of three 5.25” ODD mounts, ten 3.5” HDD mounts, and two 2.5” HDD mounts. Users can hinge the fans to swing to the right or left for easy access to the ODDs. The top panel is home to four USB 3.0 ports, one e-SATA port, and HD audio ports. Lian Li includes a USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 converter as well. The dimensions of the PC-P80N stand at 220mm x 633mm x 610mm (W, H, D).

    PC-Z70
    Besides being available in black this full-tower PC chassis is also available in silver and mounts HPTX, EATX, ATX, or Micro-ATX motherboards. Eleven ventilated PCI expansion slots on the back panel can mount graphics cards as long as 390mm long. Three 5.25” ODD bezels are located at the top of the front panel. Below them, internally, there are nine 3.5” SATA hot-swappable HDD mounts as well as two 2.5” HDD mounts. Lian Li has added to the security of this case by including a lock for the HDD mounts. Three 120mm intake fans mount on either the left or right side panel, for direct airflow over the HDD mounts. Two 140mm fans on the top panel and one 120mm fan at the top of the rear panel work as exhaust fans to expel hot air. Along a sloped ridge that joins the top and front panels, the I/O ports are all mounted for convenient access including: two USB 3.0 ports, one USB 2.0 port, one e-SATA port, as well as HD audio ports. The dimensions of the PC-Z70 stand at 220mm x 6 00mm x 592mm (W, H, D). The net weight is 8.8kg.

    PC-Z60
    This mid-tower chassis is nicknamed “little brother” because of its remarkable similarity to the PC-Z70. Available in black and silver, the PC-Z60 mounts ATX, Micro-ATX, or Mini-ITX motherboards and has eight expansion slots with enough room for graphics cards as long as 305mm long. Three 5.25” ODD bezels are located at the top of the front panel. Below them, internally, there are six 3.5” SATA hot-swappable HDD mounts as well as two 2.5” HDD mounts. Like its big brother, the PC-Z60 also comes equipped with a security lock for the HDD rack. The fans are set-up similarly as well with two 120mm fans that mount on either side panel for air intake, complimented by one 140mm exhaust fan on the top panel and one 120mm exhaust fan at the top of the rear panel. Like the PC-Z70, the I/O ports are located along a sloped ridge that joins the top and front panels for convenience. Ports match the PC-Z70 exactly and include: two USB 3.0 p orts, one USB 2.0 port, one e-SATA port, as well as HD audio ports. The dimensions of the PC-Z60 stand at 210mm x 472mm x 480mm (W, H, D).

    All three of these finely crafted, high-end PC cases are made to give users the classic and high-quality Lian Li look that is known the world over. Whether you are looking to be big and bold with the PC-P80N or to be smooth and chic with the PC-Z70 and PC-Z60, these cases are some of the best that money can buy.

    I was about to buy a Silverstone Fortress FT02 but now I might wait to see reviews of these.

    If you are not a stupid shop-aholic or update-aholic, it is money well spend: My Lian Li PC-70 tower is still rocking after 10 years! Newer cases have nothing that I 'neeeeeed'. LOL:nutkick:

    Lian Li also have a good second hand value, if you ever want to sell it. At least here used ones are crazy expensive.

    I could imagine upgrading to the PC-Z60 if I had the cash to spare. Love the hot swappable hard drive bays. That said, not in an urgent need to upgrade my case...

    Excellent, the rubber grommets around the cable management holes are becoming a standard in Lian Li cases too. :rockout:
