Lian Li have long been known for their extremely elegant and very expensive aluminium cases. Quality has always oozed from almost every case they have produced, but with that quality and aluminium material, an unaffordable price tag looms nearby. As we enthusiasts believe, if a brand is offering high quality and desirable products, they shouldn’t change their production and design aims due to the possibility of the changes resulting in a lack of quality to hit a certain price point. Thankfully, Lian Li have managed to maintain their elegant aluminium design while also producing a case which meets a far more appealing price point; the Lian Li PC-6B.
The PC-6B’s side panel, front bezel and main body are constructed of high quality aluminium with a brushed finish. The elegant black exterior is certain to be alluring for users who demand a well-dressed computer case. An interior comprised of silver aluminium will, due to its easy and hassle free cutting in comparison to a steel chassis, certainly appeal to the avid modders who love nothing more than chopping up a case.
Functionality wise, the PC-6B supports graphics cards up to a goliath 440mm in length, CPU coolers which are around 160mm tall and the biggest power supply units that the market has to offer. 3 3.5” HDDs and 2 2.5” SSDs can be installed simultaneously on the removable HDD cage. There is the possibility of installing 3 devices in the 5.25” bays. A variety of motherboard form factors are supported and 8 PCI slots ensure excellent expansion options.
It seems as if the Lian Li PC-6B could be a huge hit with its attractive £90/€95/$100 price tag. Will the high expectations be met?
