Lian Li Industrial Co. Ltd. announces the TYR PC-X2000F chassis. The TYR line is designed to stand out in your living room in unmistakable Lian Li style. Taking the original concept of low profile and slim designs and turning it completely around; there is no need to hide TYR line cases with their sleek Anodized Aluminum Finishes, giving them the resemblance of multimedia speakers. The new TYR PC-X2000F is set to build on the line's success and become the most unique HTPC/gaming chassis on the market today. Allowing unprecedentedly high performance components to be encompassed into the home theater environment without compromising looks or appeal, the new TYR PC-X2000F is definitely worthy of the Lian Li label.

The stylish and unique side panels accept four 5.25” Optical Device Drives (ODD) and one 3.5” drive with tool-less, sliding mounts that can be placed on either the left or right side, while the front face is for ergonomics and airflow. Unlike Lian Li's previously released TYR PC-X2000 that had only two 5.25” ODDs, the new TYR PC-X2000F splits the HDD bays between the upper and lower thermal zones for more efficient cooling. Furthermore, the TYR PC-X2000F's tool-less HDD mounting racks support seven SAS hot swappable HDDs, another increase over the X2000. The spacious interior can accommodate virtually any system you can think of.



Lian Li is well known for craftsmanship and quality, and the TYR PC-X2000F is no exception. Showcasing Lian Li's superior styling, first seen with the X2000, the brand new TYR PC-X2000F does not disappoint with an all black anodized interior, an easily removable front panel which covers three 140mm silent intake fans, protected by a removable and washable nylon dust filter. The Fan Speed Control switch is conveniently placed on the back panel of the chassis. The TYR PC-X2000F boasts four USB 3.0 ports mounted on the top of the chassis alongside one multimedia port for e-SATA and HD audio.

Wanting to give users every convenience, Lian Li designed the TYR PC-X2000F with increased space behind the motherboard for cable management, compared to the previously released X2000, to give the interior a clean and orderly appearance. Other traditional Lian Li innovations have been improved upon as well, including the tool-less features introduced by Lian Li this year.

Increased Innovation
Lian Li's TYR PC-X2000F requires just a few quick snaps to install key components. The design features tool-less motherboard installation, and eight tool-less PCI card holders with rubber pads to hold the graphics cards firmly in place. Additionally, the PSU is now located above a vent on the bottom panel, for added cooling, and is also a tool-less installation. The vent is protected by a removable and washable nylon dust filter.

More features include support for Extended ATX, ATX, and Micro-ATX motherboards, water cooling support, 140mm silent exhaust fans for the motherboard heat zone, 140mm exhaust fans for the HDD bay heat zone and further support for the PSU with anti-vibration and insulated rubber strips on the mounting platforms.

The case was designed with silence in mind, so specialized sound insulation material combined with the 2mm thick aluminum alloy side panels keep your system whisper quiet. Taking things to the extreme in comfort and convenience, Lian Li mounts the case on rubber pads to minimize any vibrations that could add to noise. Additional touches include vented PCI brackets which add to through flow of air and prevent heat buildup.

Traditional Durability
The essence of Lian Li products is the craftsmanship of the engineering. Intrinsic to the workmanship and quality of Lian Li's products is their customization capabilities, which include a whole host of optional extras that can be added to an already feature rich product.

  • Supports Extended ATX, ATX, and Micro-ATX motherboards
  • Four tool-less ODD bays placed either the right or left side
  • Seven tool-less HDD mounting racks
  • More cable storage space behind motherboard tray
  • Fan control-switch on the back panel
  • Four USB 3.0 multimedia I/O ports & one e-SATA/HD audio port
  • Three 140mm LED fans at front & two 140mm fans at rear
  • Availability: Arriving at local distributors end of May
  • MSRP : US $539+local VAT; only black color is available

that case looks like a mighty fine replacement for a Antec 900/902/1200 or CM stacker for that matter...

I can really see myself going from my 902 to this lian li.

pitty its probably gonna cost half a kidney

Anything can be a HTPC chassis if it looks vaguely similar to AV/Hifi gear. This kind of turns in on it's head claiming that blends in with tower speakers.

Madness I tell you ... madness!! You're gonna need a big-assed lounge to house that puppy.

It kind of resembles a monolith, and I think that is less far-fetched than the resemblance to HiFi equipment. Let alone its size:shadedshu

My missus would never let me put something like this in our lounge. When I get around to building a HTPC it'll have to blend in with 'the aesthetic'. Something this thing will not do unless our lounge suddenly starts to resemble a data-centre.

How is this a HTPC chassis:confused:
Perhaps the case can be placed horizontally. If not, I would say that describing the case as an HTPC chassis is misinformation. Nice case all the same...

Far too expensive, but its a modders paradise. I think Lian Li were aiming for an Obsidian 800D beater, but at that price, its not gonna stick.

I own the early model of this case. The case is awesome, everything that was wrong with the early version seems to be fixed in this version, more drive bays and you have access to the front panel now, instead of just fans, however the early version has 4 massive fans in the front.

The major problem is that Lian Li never released the case to the united states, I had to order it from Canada, later on Lian Li actually distributed it through a different company with the lian li logo off and sold it in the United States, no idea what was the companies name.

Anyway, to the point, the early model of this case is/was excellent, this one improves a lot of the stuff from what I see from the pictures. I highly recommend it.

Finally Lian Li designed a case that doesn't look exactly like all their other cases.:p ....and yes, this case looks badass! I don't care much for that front bezel cover, what the point of have 3 12mm fans or excellent air intake it they're covered?

If it's as shallow as the X500, you will have to remove one fan to fit a 5970.

I would have gotten the original version before but the cost was like ~$300 more compared to the P80, so I got the P80 tower instead..

For this size and price, it needs to support 10 slot boards, and the dual cpu evga board. At this cost, I'll take a mountain mods case, tyvm.
