Lian Li PC-B16 and PC-A61 Mid-Towers Now Available
Peter Donnell / 2 years ago
Lian-Li are one of the best chassis manufacturers in the business, their aluminium crafting skills rarely disappoint, so it’s always a pleasure to hear that they have more great products coming to market. Today they’ve revealed their new PC-B16 and PC-A61, both brushed aluminium mid-tower chassis which feature modular 5.25″ drive cages, removable hard drive bays and more, allowing for lots of internal customizations.
Both the new cases have the same internal design, but the panels of the PC-B16 have been redesigned with a focus on silent operation, packed with sound dampening materials and a sleek front panel door. Both feature Lian-Li’s tool-less HDD bay system for both 3.5″ and 2.5″ drives, with 6 bays in total and an extra 2.5″ stealth mount behind the motherboard tray.
The Monolithic PC-B16
The silence-oriented PC-B16 allows for a high performance system that is audibly invisible. Sound-absorbing foam lines the side panels, top panel and the lockable front door.
House Big Hardware
CPU coolers up to 170mm (6.7″) in height and power supplies up to 280mm (11″) in length are supported. VGA cards up to 420mm (16.5″) comfortably fit inside the PC-B16 and PC-A16.
Both chassis have 30mm (1.2″) of cable management space behind the motherboard tray.
Water Cooling Support
A tool-lessly removable top panel and 60mm (2.3″) of spacing allows for 240/280mm radiators and AIO liquid cooling kits to be easily installed on both the PC-B16 and PC-A61. A 240mm radiator can also be mounted at the front.
The I/O panel is located on the top of both chassis, and is hidden by a stealth cover when not in use. Connectivity includes four USB 3.0 ports and HD audio connections.
Price and Availability
The PC-B16 and PC-A61 will be available in the US in early June for the suggested retail prices of $239 and $199/$239 respectively.
We hope to have these in for review in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for more information once we’ve had a closer look at what they have to offer.
