Lian-Li PC-O5S Review

The front of the Lian-Li PC-O5s has lots of mesh, for their “open air” design. One of the configurations is with the bottom stand, so it stands upright.

There are two (2) USB 3.0 ports, microphone and headphone ports, and a power button in a little recessed panel.

The back of the case has four (4) PCIe slots that are parallel to the motherboard, so you will need a riser card (included). There is also room for a single 120mm or 140mm fan on the side panel behind the motherboard tray. There are also two (2) cut outs for running a power cable.

The top of the case has perforations over room to mount two (2) 120mm fans.

The vertical stand has rubber pads on the feet to reduce vibrations, and to protect your desk.

The business side has a tempered glass panel that covers the entire side. It is held in place by four (4) large thumb screws.

  1. Nice review Mos. This case seems like a clear effort from Lian Li to offer something in the realm of InWin’s higher end concept cases. These cases looked amazing when we saw them at CES. Some people will balk at the price tag but this is a high caliber case that looks incredible. 90% of the people that walked by on the show floor stopped to look at them when we were at the booth.

  2. A great review as always Chris  :D
     
    However…
     
    As much as I love this case two things limit it in my eyes –
     
    1) It can only accommodate a 190mm GPU out of the box.
    2) It’s price tage in the UK – £280 ($417 US) erm sorry but no chance would I or many others pay that.

  3. Yeah, it’ll definitely take the right buyers to move these things. I do think it’s worth it, though. In terms of design, materials, workmanship, and aesthetic. It’s just got to be the right combinations of wants and financial resources lol
