A Yacht-shaped Case from Lian-Li This Computex

Lian Li has a tradition of launching at least one off-beat, entirely unexpected case each year at Computex, to show off its design prowess. This year's offering is the PC-Y6. Available in white (PC-Y6W) and black (PC-Y6B), this yacht-shaped case made of aluminium and tempered glass, has a more boutique (less practical) design for its volume.

It measures 764 mm x 293 mm x 259 mm (WxHxD), and takes up as much space as a mid-tower. What it can enclose, though, is a mini-ITX motherboard, a video card as long as 30 cm, a CPU cooler as tall as 6 cm, a standard ATX PSU, and two each of 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch drives. There just the one 120 mm front fan mount. The rest of it is mostly open-air. This case could make for an interesting and functional prop in the luxury suite of an actual cruise ship, or a yacht.

ID-Cooling Enthusiast Case with Monitor Stand Spied

ID-Cooling is ready with a new enthusiast grade rail-type case, which doubles up as a VESA-mount monitor stand, so you could pack a real wallop behind your >27-inch display. The rail-type case features a 3-dimensional T-shaped frame, with an L-shaped frame tapering to the back. The cage has room for a mini-ITX motherboard, but with enough clearance for a long, 2-slot high-end graphics card. You also get room for a fairly big high-Wattage PSU, and enough clearance for a DIY liquid-cooling loop (including a reservoir, a 240 mm x 120 mm radiator), and the works. A tinted tempered-glass panel tops off the case from the rear. A small cutout lets you manage your cable spaghetti and route cables to your monitor.

Lian Li Intros PC-O5SW Black-White Case

Lian Li introduced a black-white variant of its PC-O5SW case, featuring matte black interiors contrasting white aluminium exteriors, and a large, clear-acrylic window on its side panel. The SFF case has room for a mini-ITX motherboard, with risers wiring out four expansion slots along the plane of the motherboard (ideal for triple-slot graphics cards), a slimline optical drive, three 3.5-inch drive bays through a detachable drive rack, and two 2.5-inch bays behind the motherboard tray, which convert to one 3.5-inch bay.

An SFX PSU is needed to power your rig up. Ventilation includes two 120 mm top exhausts, and a 140 mm right side-panel fan. The case supports graphics cards with 19 cm length with the 3x 3.5-inch HDD rack in place, and up to 31 cm with it removed. PSUs as long as 140 mm are supported, and CPU coolers as tall as 85 mm. Measuring 384 mm x 465 mm x 148 mm (WxHxD), the case weighs 6.4 kg. Front-panel connectivity includes two USB 3.0 ports (standard header), and HDA jacks. The PCIe riser supports PCIe gen 3.0 standard.

The O Series launched in 2014 and was lauded for its aesthetics - Lian Li's hallmark brushed aluminum combined with large tempered glass windows, allowing DIY enthusiasts to showcase their most elaborate builds. Like its predecessor, the PC-O8, the PC-O9 uses a larger form factor and incorporates big, beautiful glass panels, but is halved into two compartments: an all-glass area for showcasing hardware, and a more convention aluminum section for hiding cables, drives, and the power supply.

AMD Pushes for a Universal External Graphics Standard

AMD is working on a standardized external graphics solution for notebooks. This solution will allow people with ultra-thin notebooks to enjoy the mobility served up by frugal, mainstream hardware; as well as high-end gaming, with the graphics card plugged in at home. It also probably gives AMD greater control over design and cooling solutions. Unlike a mobile GPU that sits inside your notebook, and makes it bulky due to additional cooling and power requirements, an external graphics card sits on your desk, sipping on wall socket power.

AMD's external graphics solution isn't necessarily an AMD-branded piece of hardware, but rather an open specification for notebook vendors to follow. AMD will merely provide the GPUs and software ecosystem that makes the solution truly universal and plug-n-play, with "standardized connectors, cables, drivers, and OS support." Such a graphics card will interface with just any notebook with a high-speed interface (eg: Thunderbolt). Its drivers will make it crunch your games, while sending back output to your notebook's display, over the same connection. This gives you the mobility of an ultra-thin notebook. You should also be able to plug this into your work's boring Dell desktop, or any SFF ITX box. Pictured below is a Razer Core graphics solution embedding a Radeon R9 Nano. Other examples include MSI Gaming Dock and Alienware Graphics Amplifier.

ASRock Intros the A88M-ITXac Motherboard

ASRock introduced the A88M-ITXac socket FM2+ motherboard. As its name suggests, the board is built in the mini-ITX form-factor, and is based on AMD A88X chipset, supporting the latest socket FM2+ APUs and CPUs. The board draws power from a combination of 24-pin ATX and 8-pin EPS power connectors, conditioning it with a 5-phase CPU VRM. The socket is wired to two DDR3 DIMM slots, supporting up to 32 GB of dual-channel DDR3-2400 memory; and the board's lone expansion slot - a PCI-Express 3.0 x16.

Storage connectivity on the A88M-ITXac includes six SATA 6 Gb/s ports, and an M.2 PCIe port (on the reverse side of the PCB). Network connectivity includes 802.11ac WLAN (up to 433 Mbps), Bluetooth 4.0, and gigabit Ethernet. Display outputs include one each of HDMI 1.4a, dual-link DVI, and D-Sub. The board supports AMD Dual-Graphics, which lets you run the APU's onboard graphics in tandem with a select Radeon discrete graphics card, for added performance.

Lian Li Introduces the Fanless Micro-ITX PC-Q04 PC Chassis

Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd announces the PC-Q04 Mini Tower Chassis for Mini-ITX systems. While not the smallest chassis Lian Li offers, this case gives builders a bit more breathing room without compromising its compact size. The enhanced vents are designed to mitigate any vibration or noise from case fans and maximize the cooling performance of the internal components themselves. The PC-Q04 employs both its floor and roof space for drive mounting, doing away with externally facing bays for improved airflow.

One of the biggest features of the PC-Q04 is its vents - they are the only things that could be described as "big" on this case. The large side vent lets the PSU draw and vent out its own air to work as efficiently as possible. Meanwhile, the bottom left and right vents as well as the entire floor panel allow the GPU to take in air as needed while giving the CPU enough room to breath. The rear panel is another large vent to let warm air escape. Tall rubber feet prevent vibrations and suspend the case to let air flow readily through the bottom vent.
