    Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd has launched the PC-8N Mid Tower chassis ideal for PC systems. The hair-line brushed all aluminum chassis features advanced thermal dynamics, using one fan on the front (1x 120mm@1200RPM) to pump cool air into the chassis where it exhausts out the rear fan (1x 120mm@1200RPM). The 7x PCI expansion slots are vented and assist with airflow. The chassis front face has 4x 5.25" ODD bays and a 3.5" drive bay. The front face clips off easily and conveniently. The dimensions stand at 210x450x490mm (W, H, D). The top panel is removable and the entire system has smoothed edges, and an anti-vibration design.

    The chassis supports 4x 5.25" Optical drive bays with 1x 3.5" external. The HDDs have a specially designed cage that secures them snugly via thumb screw struts supported with rubber grommets. The entire cage secures the HDDs via a patented slider bar that secures all the HDDs simultaneously. The PC-8N midi case is for Micro-ATX or ATX motherboards and has 7 PCI expansion slots, which are well ventilated with special vented brackets when not in use. The top panel is removable with the multimedia I/O ports on the front panel consisting of 2x USB2.0 as well as HD+AC97 Audio. The PSU fits securely at the rear top of the chassis.

    Thermal features
    The engineers at Lian Li have optimized the airflow to enter from the front 120mm fan, directly cooling the HDDs and ODDs and thereafter refreshing the CPU region. The hot air generated by the CPU and GPU is directly extracted via the rear 120mm Fan which allow for silent operation. The volume of airflow is more than sufficient to keep your PC system cool and conveniently silent.

    Traditional Durability
    The classical stylish functional design is the Lian Li goal. 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.

    clean lines and simple design. I like the HD cage facing the side too cause I cant stand HD cables brushing up against the gfx card

    ffs, what is so hard about releasing the price during the launch?

    Not too shabby, Lian Li makes some of the best pc cases, but the thermal design really is nothing new.
