[Cases] Lian Li flashes more pics of their desks, DK01 and DK02 on Facebook

Recommended Posts

Lian Li is showing more pics of their new desk PC cases.  DK01 will be able to house a single system while the DK02 model can support a dual system set-up.  No word on pricing yet but knowing Lian Li the quality will be high. 
 
I really wish they would have gone with some different leg options.  Time to get the hacksaw out :)

Lian Li HQ annouced details on their DK-01X and DK-02X Aluminum Computer Desks today.
22 May 2014, Keelung, Taiwan - Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd, today announces the release of two desk chassis – the single-system DK-01X and the dual-system DK-02X.
Constructed of aluminum and combining the symbiotic relationship of desks and computer cases, these all-black hybrid chassis allow DIY builders to build a full computer inside a desk and show off their hardware creations through tempered glass desktops.
Desk Chassis
The DK-01X and DK-02X feature a lockable sliding door to make installations and upgrades easy. The adjustable/removable keyboard tray makes typing and mousing comfortable, and the side mounted pocket with headphone rack allows users to easily store unused accessories.
The DK-01X support motherboards up to HPTX. The DK-02X supports motherboards up to HPTX for its workhorse-oriented system side, and mini-ITX motherboards on the gaming-oriented side.
Flexible Cooling Options
From air to water cooling, the DK-01X and DK-02X are ready to take on the latest cooling hardware. Both desk chassis support 360mm radiators on the side, and also have removable brackets on the front – the DK-01X has one 360mm bracket while the DK-02X has two 240mm brackets.
Storage Options
The DK-01X has 10 individually removable hard drives bays, while the DK-02X has 8 HDD bays for the smaller system and 9 HDDs for the larger workhorse-oriented system. This storage setup gives builders flexibility to use the space as they see fit, such as freeing up more room for water cooling.
Comfort for Your Viewing Pleasure
Both desk chassis have a height of 805mm (31.7”), but can be raised to 835mm (32.9”) to provide more leg room. On the back, up to 3 monitor mounts can be installed for multiple display setups.
Hardware Compatibility
CPU coolers up to 180mm (7”) in height and power supplies up to 280mm (11”) in length are supported. VGA cards up to 410mm (16.5”) inside the DK-01X and DK-02X.
Connectivity
For both the DK-01X and the DK-02X, the I/O panel is located at the front side of the sliding drawer. The DK-01X front I/O includes four USB 3.0 ports and HD audio connections, while the DK-02X sports two sets of these same connections for both systems. Also, located on the front sliding drawer of the DK-01X and DK-02X is a slim optical drive bay, which can house an SSD.
Price and Availability
The DK-01X and DK-02X will be available in the US at the end of July for the suggested retail prices of $989 and $1189 respectively.

Throw out the legs and direct mount to a wall :)

So your keyboard would just slide out? I kinda like the design of the USB ports right there, but yeah. Ugly legs.

Same, throw out the legs and make a custom one with a pair of linear actuators. Voila! Sit-Stand Pc Desk.... 

 

 

Ow, Ow, and add a support bracket that could support a triple monitor set-up!.

Um... No one's going to comment on the school bag hook on the side?

That extra shelf-thing on the front doesn't look like it slides at all. I suspect that's a bolt on "feature".

Open drawer, desk falls over forward.  WHY are they so bent on making a desk?

I found this tidbit about the DK01 last week and finally found the link again.  An Australian site put it on their page with a price of $1195AUD ($1120USD) for the DK01 http://www.computeralliance.com.au/lian-li-pc-dk01-aluminum-black-desk-case-(no-psu) .  This could just be a placeholder on the site or maybe they made a big oops by posting information too soon.

 

A full tower can run you in the $300-$350 range for a higher end model like a Cosmos 2, 900D, HAF X or Phantom 820.  Move to more premium grade, like the bigger Caselabs, and you are in the $500 range.  Add the extra materials involved and the niche market this is aimed at, $1100 might be fairly accurate for what it may come out at price wise.

 

Again, this is not set in stone or confirmed to be the pricing so don't go all crazy about it.  Let's switch things up, how much do YOU think the DK01 should be priced at?  And take into consideration the all aluminum construction (think high end Lian-li and Caselabs case pricing) along with the cost of a big chunk of Tempered glass cut to fit with the material costs for the legs, etc.

 

I think if the DK01 came in at $949 with the DK02 obviously being more, say $1099, they might get some market traction.

Oooooh mmyyy gaaaawd! I thought those hooks on the side was supposed to be for headphones!? What the hell?? Why would lian li bother putting those there?

Anyways, if the price of this will go up to more than $1000, i will just probably try to spend that money on making my own. WITH a pair of actuators. Although i dont have any experience on doing something like that, but everyone needs to start somewhere, right?

I wonder how much weight can that leg support? Just imagine putting $1000 worth of liquid cooling there and when you are half way through pulling the drawer thingy for the keyboard out, if falls down.

I still don't understand why all of these companies call these enclosures/cases chassis'. They're not chassis' at all, they're full enclosures, complete with the body and all. I digress.
