Lian Li PC-6 Review

We’ve seen plenty of different ideas from plenty of case manufacturers to differentiate them from others. There are those manufacturers that try to wow you with graphics, those that try to innovate with crazy designs; personally, I like it when they get back to the basics. Lian Li is one of those companies that have been consistent throughout their tenure, with only a few questionable designs throughout the years. With the introduction of the PC-6, Lian Li thinks they can bring this “back to basics” reviewer to chassis nirvana.

First, the PC-6 is an all aluminum case that measures 210mm x 475mm x 498mm (WxHxD) and features a removable all aluminum front bezel. This case weighs in at only 11 lbs making it one of the lightest cases we have in the lab. The PC-6 is compatible with ATX, Micro ATX, and Mini-ITX motherboards and can also accommodate video cards that are up to 440mm in length. There are three 5.25 in external drive bays and an HDD system that can handle three 3.5 inch and one 2.5 inch HDD’s. What? Wait… there is no external 3.5 inch bay? That is right, no floppy drive or multi-card reader options here; my 3.5 inch bays have been empty for years now anyway.

The Lian Li PC-6’s brushed aluminum exterior offers a functional and elegant twist to the PC Chassis market. The top mounted power button combines the utility and practicality that many case manufacturers cannot seem to mesh well. A quick glance to the left of the power and reset buttons and you discover the traditional Lian Li aluminum flip door that hides the USB connections and the audio connections. This design has become a standard and consistent element on the Lian Li lineup.

If you are a case designer or manufacturer, you must be asking what can you do to differentiate yourself from the rest of the herd? After all, there are a ton of cases out there, but what will make yours stand out? Some may use fancy graphics, some will do it with price, and others will go right back to the drawing board. Computer cases have fundamentally stayed the same over the years. Outside of some minor changes like the PSU being moved from the top to the bottom, there isn't much to guess about. Well, SilverStone has some ideas that may be able to change the way you look at your computer case.
