New open air chassis teased by Lian Li, can be used as wall mount

Recommended Posts

Lian Li teasing a new case line today, an open style that can be wall mounted.  I'd love to see a desk to drop one of these into for an instant desk PC.  Here are the details from their Facebook post:

 

Highlights:
Open Air Chassis in Three Sizes: Mini-ITX (PC-O5), Micro-ATX (PC-O6), ATX (PC-O7)
Wall Mountable
GPU Riser
Large Tempered Glass Window
HDD Shroud
Plentiful Cable Management Space
Slim Optical Drive Bay

The Micro-ATX and ATX models will have a version that supports water cooling radiators, and are named PC-O6S and PC-O07S, respectively. Both the PC-O6S (pic not included) and PC-O7S support up to a 360mm radiator.

I like the idea of it. Needs included sexy GPU-riser. Limited cpu-cooler-support. Close off the sides (Clear) - open up bottom for intake -filtered, ventilated top. This will first&foremost be a show-off piece....so needs room to fit custom loop? Fit a bay pump/res combo? Drop the ODD imo.

I hope/wish they include a cover for the slim ODD bay... would be nice to have a cover for a slot load slim drive as well.

Overall I quite like it actually. I wouldn't mind seeing ventilation on the top and bottom though, just to add some really low RPM fans to help.

Good catch Cheaps I noticed that too.  Hopefully they provide a decent GPU extension that is actually PCIe 3.0 certified.  The distance will also be an issue as that's a long run for a extension cable so it better be a nice shielded one.

 

It's a cool idea for a case, I could see it on a wall behind someones PC maybe above their multi-screen setup.

I will be sent the PC-05 (mini-ITX). The current schedule to ship out samples is late Oct (that is when the revisions will likely be done. The bigger versions of the open air chassis wont be available until mid January

I agree the mesh looks good. I wanted to do a wall mount htpc and now I have found the case. I think an external mount res/pump like the photon would look good. I don't see the space to do an internal unless it has a single bay. At a bare minimum it gets the wheels turning for a scratch build.
