The external styling on 10N is very sleek and professional with its brushed aluminium appearance. The front features a removable aluminium panel, containing a trio of 5.25” drive bay covers which are detachable from the inside of the case and a perforated mesh area in the lower section – to work in collaboration with the dual 120mm intake cooling fans.
Around the back of the case, at the bottom there is a space for mounting the PSU whilst above there are a total of eight PCI expansion slot covers – each have ventilation and thumbscrews for easy removal. At the top of 10N there is a 120mm rear exhaust cooling fan with two respective circular rubber grommets for tubing/cables.

Front panel connectivity runs along the outer edge of 10N and consists of just two USB 3.0 ports and headphone/microphone audio jacks. Lian Li have also only included a power button rather than combing with a reset button.
The USB ports use an internal motherboard connector.

At the top of 10N there is a detachable aluminium panel which has an optional 140mm fan slot with cover. In its default state, the cover is attached to the case to prevent dust/dirt entering – this cover will obviously be removed once a cooling fan is installed.

On the underside of 10N there are four rubber feet to prevent the case from slipping on smooth surfaces. Lian Li have integrated a detachable dust filter for the PSU – due to the design, the case will need to be placed on its side in order to clean the filter.
