Lian Li Hits the Silicon Railroads with Train-Themed Mini-ITX Chassis
Lian Li may have just fulfilled the childhood dreams of a few railroad-loving PC enthusiasts with its latest aluminum mini-ITX chassis - a chugging steam train! The Taiwanese case maker calls this masterpiece the PC-CK101, which comes in two variants: the stationary PC-CK101 Standard and the moving PC-CK101 Premium, which happily includes six interlocking tracks that your train move onto. Both models sport two sections: the car, which houses the mini-ITX motherboard along with a 120mm fan; and the engine, which contains all the other hardware components. Cabling is routed through a tunnel from the car to the engine. A small 300-watt PSU sits at the engine's rear, with space for an optical drive at the front, as well as compartments for a 3.5” and one 2.5” hard drive. The PC-CK101 Standard will be released soon for $229, while the PC-CK101 Premium will be available for $379. Interested in getting your own PC-CK101 for free? Lian Li is also giving one away to a lucky PC owner.
