Lian Li PC-6087A Aluminum Case - FrostyTech.com Lian Li PC-6087A Aluminum Case
Tue Aug 27, 2002 | 9:48P| PermaLink
The rear of both cases is identical. Everything is secured using thumbscrews which earns much cool points in my book. From the top down we have the removable PSU cover followed by the slide-out motherboard tray. On the left is a somewhat thin I/O panel that has enough holes to fit most motherboards. To the right is the 80mm exhaust fan behind a pretty restrictive fan grill cutout. Much like they pioneered the aluminum case market, Lian Li should promote the use of screw-on chrome grills on all their cases; they look nice, are removable (for cleaning, replacement, etc) and don't block so much airflow. Furthermore, shifting it up slightly (or making the case just a tad bit taller) in future revisions would allow for the use of a secondary exhaust fan, which would be quite helpful. The case comes with seven PCI tabs already in place; these too are held stationary by thumbscrews. Finally, there are three sets of holes to the right for venting; initially I thought of strapping some 40mm fans in there but the holes don't line up. One thing I should point out is how easy it is to stain polished (vs. brushed) aluminum. Notice the nasty grimy stuff on the right? Those are fingerprints and they're very difficult to remove. These are not visible on the brushed side, but in places where things are mirror smooth (and especially on the extra PCI tabs), they show up fairly well. I guess you could say it looks "rugged" ;p
