The LiteOn WTX Case

I don't really want to talk to much about the LiteOn case the Swiftech Quiet Power liquid cooled system uses as cases really aren't the focus of this website. Cooling is :)

Suffice to say, the LiteOn FS020 is huge . It is probably one of the largest cases I have ever worked with and there isn't anything it won't accept. This is a WTX case, and that means that in addition to standard AMD and Pentium 4 systems, or even dual AMD systems, it is the right shape to support dual XEON server motherboards. The case has a special bracket to support the riser cards for those type of boards which can often accept up to 4GB of RDRAM on a special daughter board.

Other notable features of the care are as follows: 7X expansion slots, 4X 5.25" bays and 6X 3.5" bays. The case measures 21" x 18-1/4" x 9" and weighs in at 40lbs. It is not a small case and it is not light. Then again, it is the case to end all cases, and you really should never need something "bigger".

The side panel is removed with the use of thumbscrews and installation is pretty good all things considered. The side RDRAM support bracket gets in the way, but once it is removed there really isn't a need to reinstall it unless you are liquid cooling dual socket 603 Xeon processors.

Note that in the above photo the power source for the pump is no longer located in the lower position. Swiftech have moved the power plug for the case up to where the fill and bleed valves are so it is out of the way. In this no longer used location, it interfered with access to some of the lower PCI expansion slots. Up next the thermal and acoustic test results, but first a look at what we use to evaluate thermal cooling devices.
