Lian Li PC-Z60 Aluminium Mid-Tower Chassis Review

/ 6 years ago

Those who know me, will be aware that I’m not a case person. I’d much rather have my systems sprawled across boxes or sitting on a test bench, and it’s all down to the time it takes to change components. For those in the computer industry, much like ourselves, you’ll know exactly what it’s like when you are forever changing components in a system, and for us it’s almost a daily chore to go with having a shower, brushing your teeth and after a short while it gets a bit tedious and repetitive to say the least.

There are moments in our lives when we stop and think and today is one of those days. A day when something makes you re-evaluate everything and from a first glance, the PC-Z60 from Lian Li is going to do exactly that.

Imagine it as an epiphany if you will, a product that looks so stylish and sounds so amazing on paper that you’d simply put that agonising pain of swapping components behind you, just so you get that inner child of yours smiling every time you see it in the corner of your eye. We had the same feeling with the Level 10 from Thermaltake but the novelty soon wore off on that monster.

Lian Li have always held a special place in my heart though, as they don’t do gimmicks, their products just work and look stunning in the process. So whilst the Z60 does look stunning and has all the correct ingredients for an amazing case, we hope that it lives up to that everlasting dream that we have and shows us why Lian Li are still the best.

    Must admit that you get what you pay for, great design, would never pay so much though will have to win one from you Andy LOL. So that was what the keys are for locking the drive bays, though they were some kind of security feature, like that you get four fans installed, and hot swap bays brill, theres alot to like about this case, bit plain IMHO, but still like it. I an a fan of the mesh look.

    Need info about the "Maximum Video Card Size".

    On the shipping box: 290mm
    Web page – Feature: 305mm
    Web page – Specification: 288mm

    What's the correct value? Need this for a 292.1mm video card.

    Have any of you guys ever seen a Mac Pro case?

    To call this dog's breakfast "Elegant, Stylish, Solid build quality and Superb Functionality" leaves me gobsmacked.

    "Cable tidying is a simple task" ROTFL!

    It is like discussing food and the comparison never goes past Maccas, Pizza Hut and KFC because that's all anyone seems to have tried.

      Comparing this to a Mac Pro case is like comparing an apple to a pear i'm afraid. They are two different type of products, aimed at different markets and have completely different price tags.

        Excuses, excuses. They are both just computer cases.

        One designed to really work, the other a box thrown together by a sheet metal worker.

      I've had t he same 3 Lian-Li cases for 9 years now… thru multiple builds. Slapped together by a sheetmetal worker? Not likely.
