The PC-P80N Pictured

 

PC chassis-maker, Lian Li, has announced the launch of three new aluminum chassis: The PC-P80N, PN-Z70, and PC-Z60 all feature tool-less setup and full aluminum construction as well as a host of other options, such as cable management routing and more. All three chassis are available now.

PC-P80N

Users can choose to mount HPTX, EATX, ATX, Micro-ATX or Mini-ITX motherboards in this full-tower PC case. With eleven ventilated expansion slots, users can mount graphics cards as long as 390mm long. Components are kept cool by no less then six fans. Three 140mm fans that span the entire height of the front panel pull cool air into the chassis. Two 140mm fans on the top panel and one 120mm fan at the top of the rear panel blow heated air out of the case. For thermal-optimization, the front panel intake fans are hinged and directly in front of three 5.25” ODD mounts, ten 3.5” HDD mounts, and two 2.5” HDD mounts. Users can hinge the fans to swing to the right or left for easy access to the ODDs. The top panel is home to four USB 3.0 ports, one e-SATA port, and HD audio ports. Lian Li includes a USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 converter as well. The dimensions of the PC-P80N stand at 220mm x 633mm x 610mm (W, H, D).

PC-Z70

Besides being available in black this full-tower PC chassis is also available in silver and mounts HPTX, EATX, ATX, or Micro-ATX motherboards. Eleven ventilated PCI expansion slots on the back panel can mount graphics cards as long as 390mm long. Three 5.25” ODD bezels are located at the top of the front panel. Below them, internally, there are nine 3.5” SATA hot-swappable HDD mounts as well as two 2.5” HDD mounts. Lian Li has added to the security of this case by including a lock for the HDD mounts. Three 120mm intake fans mount on either the left or right side panel, for direct airflow over the HDD mounts. Two 140mm fans on the top panel and one 120mm fan at the top of the rear panel work as exhaust fans to expel hot air. Along a sloped ridge that joins the top and front panels, the I/O ports are all mounted for convenient access including: two USB 3.0 ports, one USB 2.0 port, one e-SATA port, as well as HD audio ports. The dimensions of the PC-Z70 stand at 220mm x 600mm x 592mm (W, H, D). The net weight is 8.8kg.

PC-Z60

Available in black and silver, the PC-Z60 mounts ATX, Micro-ATX, or Mini-ITX motherboards and has eight expansion slots with enough room for graphics cards as long as 305mm long. Three 5.25” ODD bezels are located at the top of the front panel. Below them, internally, there are six 3.5” SATA hot-swappable HDD mounts as well as two 2.5” HDD mounts. Like its big brother, the PC-Z60 also comes equipped with a security lock for the HDD rack.

Like the PC-Z70, the I/O ports are located along a sloped ridge that joins the top and front panels for convenience.
