Lian Li Launches the TU150 Chassis

LIAN LI Industrial Co. Ltd., a world leading manufacturer of aluminium chassis and PC accessories, is proud to announce the next evolution within its TU family of chassis with the TU150. Designed for first time builders who demand a premium small form factor, the portable TU150 with its retractable handle offers great ventilation possibilities, a nearly tool-free experience, and a mixed tempered glass/brushed aluminium style available in black or silver that will blend in any stylish surrounding.

Designed to provide a better build experience for Mini-ITX enthusiasts, the TU150 is a sophisticated and elegant small form factor case. Built with black or silver brushed aluminium side panels and a tempered glass left side panel that sits flush all around the case, the tool-less design provides ease of manipulation and a clean finish. Capable to support up to 15 kg and inspired by the TU100 and TU200, the carry handle went under extensive redesign to be fully retractable and vanish seamlessly within the top panel.
To complement its great look, the TU150 features all the I/O expected in a modern case, such as USB3.0 (x2), USB Type C (x1), as well as HD audio. For thermal management, aficionados will be pleased with the TU150 well thought out cooling system compatibility. With a total depth of 375 mm and width of 203 mm, the TU150 can easily accommodate two 120 mm fans, one at the front and one at the rear, to create a straight air tunnel and ensure proper ventilation of all components. Additionally, two 120 mm fans can be installed beneath the GPU to keep the graphics card at optimum performance temperature. High-performance enthusiasts also have the option to install a 120 mm AIO or a CPU cooler of up to 165 mm height. To top it all, the TU150 back sports 3 removable expansion slots and can support a graphics card of up to 320 mm x 165 mm (L x W).

As far as storage, the TU150 doesn't disappoint. With a configuration option of 2x 2.5" SSD or 1x 2.5" SSD + 1x 3.5" HDD. builders can take advantage of the tempered glass panel to boldly display their storage configuration. Because cable management not only makes your system look good but actually helps improve its airflow, the TU150 is designed with a cable management solution at the top panel as the retractable handle mechanism creates an "attic" space, leaving enough room to store pass some cables from the top. Secondly, the motherboard tray is at an angle, allowing more space for the organization of the PSU cables, while the right side of the chassis features enough room to route and tidy up all your cables. Lastly, the tempered glass side panel features a shaded area at the top to help minimize the visibility of the cables around the case.
The TU150 is available starting today, August 23rd, 2019, at an MSRP of $109.99 USD.

So, they've finally got around to putting their own branding on the Ncase M1, albeit with a few tweaks.

Reminds me of old Antec sub-brand Lan Party. Small mobile cases...

This is a ~23 liter case, the Ncase M1 is only around 13. That's a huge difference. Other than that, this case has a carrying handle, completely different front I/O placement, 3 expansion slots. That's a lot more different than 'a few tweaks' in my opinion.

It is much larger than the M1.
Also not the same configuration as M1, it is not a M1 clone.
More of a IN-WIN A1 clone, without the PSU.
Very similar configuration, with a larger body and front in-take fan.

Jokes on you, the M1 got 3 expansion slots as well

I saw this case in real life and it is massive for an ITX. The design looks good but it looks much smaller in the pictures.

It's seriously almost the size of my current ATX case (jonsbo u4).

Nice. Had been wondering for a while now if my next case would be another Lian-Li as they had greatly reduced their ITX/DTX offerings over the last couple years. I didn't care much for the models left, until this one.

It's visible decrease in details and quality of build compare to ex cases.
Now with PC-O11 WXC I'm ready to add 100 euro more for max price I was ready to pay before that was 300 euro for Lian Li aluminum cases in future.
But must be quality of PC-O5, O6, O7, O8, O9, O10, O11 WX/WXC, O12, PC-V3000, PC-Q37 and previous models. Not for this.

I always repeat, it's not only aluminum, it's expensive method of build. Don't look design, look how they build case.
Such details are very important for me. But price is 3 times higher. Screws are better quality, aluminum sheet is better quality, painting of aluminum with such surfaces is harder, you don't see any deformation on places where press drill holes on right cases, etc...



It's important to say that many cases of Lian Li are build on same way and you see absolute perfection in details like case on right.
That's best what I saw on market.

From my perspective this is king of small PC cases.
PC-Q37.... It's amazing and I can bet he look great on every table but only SFX PSU compatible.
