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.
