Lian Li Releases New Chassis Called the PC-A79
Lian Li, famous for its computer chassis, has now released a new one. Named the PC-A79, this full tower chassis should suit most builders' needs, whether you want a LAN case or want to load it up with watercooling or maybe both. The chassis supports HPTX, E-ATX, XL-ATX, ATX, and Micro-ATX, and with a removable motherboard tray, it should be a breeze to install any of type of motherboard and cpu cooler. The PC-A79 is a big chassis, which shows on the inside, with dimensions of 230 mm x 618 mm x 596 mm. This allows for up to nine 3.5 inch drives and up to eight 2.5 inch drives as well as multiple graphics cards up to 350 mm in length. As for cooling your valuable components, the chassis comes with room for three 120 mm fans in the front, two 120 mm fans in the side panel, one 120 mm fan in the rear, and two 120 mm fans in the top. The space in the top can also hold a 240 mm radiator for those looking to install watercooling, and I assume that, with some modding, you should be able to install a radiator in the front and possible in the side panel.
As for connectivity, the PC-A79 will have four USB 3.0 ports, an eSATA port, and HD audio connections, which will be located on the top, coverd by a stealth cover when not in use. If you intend to use this case for LANs and the like, Lian Li has got you covered. The chassis comes with two wheels installed in the back to allow for easier tranportation.
The case will be available in black with a suggest retail price of $389 in North America.
