That's a lot of porn.
Seriously though, I can't imagine needing more than 6-8 hard drives in a case.
its like 2 case made into 1 case
why dont they make it slimmer and little bit higher
i dont like looks like being greedy using 2 cases for my pc
Looks fine and thanks for the review! Would have wished to see a bigger motherboard and far more hard drives being put in for this review however, since that's part of the reason one would buy it. I understand that's not something everyone has access to, but still...
And something not that related to the review per se, but are there any cases out there with support for multiple motherboards? Ideally I'd like to have one box host two machines. I've tried to look around a bit, but it basically boils down to making one yourself if you're not willing to go the rack-mounted route (which I'm not).
Thanks for the feedback! I do agree, that filling the chassis would have been good, but in the end, this case is a one time thing. Usually the samples do not require such boards. In the past I was able to borrow parts from a larger shop in the area (like an EVGA SR2), but this is no longer possible. And who really has 20 hard drives lying around - or even 10? ^^
Anyways, as for a chassis that can hold more than one system:
As this is just a rebrand of an asian manufacturer chassis for the German/European market, you may find it under a different brand in the USA for example.
Haha, yeah I probably have a few too many lying around at home that I really should eBay. Well, the IDE drives would probably be better off in the electronics recycling bin...
Thanks for the tip. That case actually seems like a smart solution to my problem (sans actual looks). Will definitely look into it, and even better that you've reviewed it!
Theses guys do just pick either the U2UFO/Extension or Ascension/Extension, and select the back panel config to "duality"
I would very much like to replace the playroom computer with one of these, no more kids on my laptop.
"Take a hard look at all the other excellent HPTX-capable offerings Lian Li has as they tend to offer much better bang for your buck."
I agree. I don't need the server space of that many disks, but the stealthy LianLi PC-90 can still hold 12 disks, and an HPTX board, despite its diminutive size and, by Lian Li standards current bargain basement price.
One thing I'd like to ask of Lian Li is to spend some of their resources to continuously refine their chassis. Hone them. The PC-90 v2 could use better cable management by just increasing the width of the case by 0.5 inch.
Some might make use of it. Not a big market.
I don't get why would they use easily breakable plastic pins on an high end case like this one
Lian Li is not for a common desktop user...
Most of Lian Li cases look like outdated and not appealing...
The expensive price make it more worst.
I have 8 now. Almost 20TB of storage.
But 4.5 of that is integrated wap attached or nas.
the only visual part I don't like is the raw interiors, i wish they painted it but other than that they look great and there are many models designed for a more common user unlike this one
