October 2, 2012, Keelung, Taiwan - Lian-Li Industrial Co., Ltd, today announces a new brushed aluminum mid tower chassis PC-7H. Supporting ATX and micro-ATX motherboards, the elegant PC-7H gives DIY builders a simple yet functional design with many tool-less options.
The Lian Li PC-7H can hold up to four 3.5 hard drives and one 2.5 SSD in the HDD cage in the front of the chassis. The 3.5 drives are secured into place using thumbscrews with rubber suspensions to reduce vibrations. For those looking to modify this all aluminum chassis, the HDD cage can be easily removed.
Above the HDD cage are the three 5.25 drive bays. Thanks to the tool-less design of the bays, DIY builders can easily install optical drives.
Two 140mm fans in the front of the chassis pull cool air into the chassis. The bottom 140mm fan blows air directly on the HDD cage, while the upper fan pushes air across the motherboard and expansion cards. The front panel is tool-lessly removable, making it easy to clean and maintain the air filters. The rear 120mm exhaust fan pulls hot air out of the chassis.
For those looking for more cooling options, there is space on the top panel for two 120mm fans, and more room for another 120mm fan on the side panel.
The motherboard tray features several cutouts for easy cable management, and the PC-7H accommodates CPU coolers up to 170mm (6.6) in height. The PC-7H has 8 vented expansion slots with thumb screws. Expansion cards up to 400mm (15.7) are supported.
Power supplies up to 250mm (9.8) in length easily fit at the bottom of the PC-7H. Ventilation slits underneath the PSU with a removable pull-out filter help increase the life and performance of the power supply.
The I/O panel sits on the top of the chassis and features two USB 3.0 and HD audio connections. A door covers the I/O panel to keep the elegant look when not in use.
The PC-7H comes in three color options: silver (PC-7HA), black (PC-7HB), and interior black (PC-7HX).
Pricing and Availability:
The Lian-Li PC-7H will be available in selected countries from mid-October and is priced at an MSRP of 80 Euros (Excl. VAT).
