Lian Li PC-C60 Review

If you frequent C.O.D. you will realize that I am a fan of Lian Li. I have had many of their cases over the years and it seems that they always seem to set the bar just a little higher every time they come out with something new. Granted, there have been some questionable designs over the years (U6), but I tend to forget those rather quickly when I look at the number of extremely well designed and meticulously manufactured chassis they have produced. Recently, Lian Li has produced an HTPC chassis that promises to impress… the PC-C60.

As soon as you open the box, you notice it. You notice the brushed aluminum. You notice that it is EVERYWHERE! and you love it…

Other than the aluminum, there are a number of things that sets this HTPC chassis apart from others. First, it is big… not overwhelmingly big, but noticeably bigger than the recently reviewed SilverStone GD06. The PC-C60 measures 445mm wide, 182mm tall, and 410mm deep. Given the great depth of the PC-C60, you will have no issues fitting some of today’s larger video cards, a PSU up to 180mm in depth, and the extra height allows you to install a CPU cooler up to 140mm vs 120mm for the SilverStone.

  PC-C60 GD-06 % Larger
Width 445 440 1%
Height 182 150 21%
Depth 410 340 21%

BitFenix Colussus Mini-ITX Review

I get very excited when I get a new case in the lab for review. I get even more excited when the case comes from BitFenix. BitFenix has been quietly making some of the best computer cases out there. Their signature SofTouch Surface Treatment is simply amazing. Having gained popularity with their Colossus case, BitFenix has decided to bring all that style and pizzazz to the Mini ITX platform, and dubbed it the Colossus Mini-ITX.
