Lian Li PC-X2000FN Review

👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅05-12-12

Moving in for a closer look at the external aspects of X2000FN we can see the front is completely solid and has a brushed aluminium finish. The Lian Li emblem is the only significant feature on the front. The fans inside acquire air from the ventilation holes on both sides.

Turning our attention to the rear of X2000FN we see that there is an opening at the bottom of the case for mounting the PSU. Above this there are ten PCI expansion slot covers each have ventilation holes to encourage airflow within; there is also additional ventilation to the immediate right. X2000FN has two exhaust fans at the back of the chassis, the lower is 120mm whilst the upper is 140mm, these fans are designated to two different sections which is why there are two. Next to the upper 140mm fan there is a fan controller knob allowing the speed of fans to be managed.

At the top of the chassis are the front panel controls which are concealed by an aluminium flip cover. Underneath this cover is an E-SATA port, 4x USB 3.0 ports (via internal motherboard header) and a headphone/microphone jack. Beside these ports there is a large power/reset button. Viewable from a top view is the curvature the front panel takes as it flows into the top panel – this is a single piece and demonstrates Lian Li’s finer engineering.

The front panel controls include 4x USB 3.0 ports

Further back from these ports is a smooth brushed aluminium top section which lends itself to identical styling as the front panel section. There are no significant features here such as mesh for cooling etc.

On the underside of X2000FN there are four feet. These, like other components on Lian Li cases are categorised as replacement parts because they can be purchased individually. Each of the feet are plastic with an inner rubber section which protrudes to allow anti-slip properties, each can be removed by simply unscrewing. Also on the underside is a dust filter which covers the area marked out for the PSU.
