Lian Li Announces the PC-J60 Case with Cable Management Compartment

Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd announces the PC-J60 chassis. This aluminum mid tower chassis is perfect for PC builders who want to banish loose cables for a clean PC build without all the hassle. The PC-J60 makes it easy for builders to have attain the immaculate, organized appearance of popular case builds and mods. A large aluminum cover sheathes the PSU and drive racks along the bottom panel, shrouding them from view in the main compartment so VGA cards and other more glamorous parts can hog the spotlight. Several cable holes with rubber grommets are positioned around the motherboard cut out, along with built-in cable ties, to make organization a breeze.

The PC-J60's default configuration includes two 120mm intake fans drawing cool air directly to the expansion cards through large vents flanking the entire front panel. Another large 140mm fan sucks some of this air downward into the PSU compartment over the drive racks, and is vented via the power supply in the back. On the top panel, this case can mount an addition three 120mm fans, or water cooling radiators fitting 430mm length, 160mm width, and 60mm thickness. All of the included fans and fan mounts feature removable mesh air filters.
The drive racks are positioned at the bottom of the chassis, making room in the main compartment for the largest VGA cards available on seven expansion slots - up to 410mm in length. Each drive rack mounts two 3.5" or 2.5" drives on rubber vibration dampeners. An additional 3.5" and 2.5" drive can be mounted directly on the motherboard panel for a total of six possible drives. The PC-J60 can mount CPU coolers up to 160mm tall and ATX PSUs 210mm in length.

Price and Availability
The windowless and windowed versions of the PC-J60 will be available on newegg on April 11 for $189 and $210 respectively.

You have to empty pockets if you want good all Aluminium cases.

No, you have to empty your pockets if you want a Lian Li case. There's no reason why they should be so expensive.

Not a fan of the tacked on side window look, it appears to be an after thought, and the fan in the PSU shroud ruins the clean appearance inside.
It also appears to be very similar to another case shown not long ago with the same red trim.

Personally I have always been severly unimpressed by the looks of Lian Li cases. There's always something slightly off about them.

H440... with a Lian Li sticker
I guess then most of the mid-tower cases are H440 with a sticker am I right?

Love building in Lian-Li cases. The build quality means the $$ spent is worth-while.

Unfortunately, most of late have at least one fatal flaw. With this one, it's the measly 2 x 120's in front for intake - inadequate. Plus the down-facing 140 competing for fresh intake air means a starved GPU and higher GPU temps. And where does that air go anyway when the PSU intake is facing down? This is a seriously flawed design.

I don't know why they didn't do 3 x 120's in front, with the lower fan doing split duty feeding the HDDs and partially supplying GPU air - just get rid of the down-draft 140 and back off the cover from the front panel enough to fit the extra 120. That would keep air-flow direction consistent, set up for more laminar flow, and be much more effective for the GPU.

At least Lian-Li is consistent in their price on this... :laugh:

I don't doubt the quality on many of their cases, the prices not so much. :fear:

I'd like it if it had a directly vented top, i dont like these side vented designs

Being Lian Li there probably will be replacement top panels with 2 and 3 fan holes, but then the cost is even higher

Yeah, aluminum is great, when it's a proper thickness. These Lian-Li cases,are just a little thicker than a decent beer can, with nice knife edges to cut you all throughout the case. Should come with first aid kit included. And should be priced like a case of beer (which, incidentally, has more aluminum than this case).

My Thermaltake Level 10 case is all aluminum, and was expensive as hell...but it has a really solid aluminum body, very sturdy
