Bohs Hansen / 4 years ago
Lian Li released their latest chassis and as it is so often with Lian Li – it isn’t like every other chassis on the market. The new PC-O10 is a dual-compartment chassis where the interior is divided into two chambers for easy organization and allowing users to create immaculate and picturesque builds without spending hours planning cable management. Have all the good looking hardware in one compartment and all the cables, PSU and other things needed in the hidden rear compartment.
The chassis is much like the PC-08 or PC-09, but a lot slimmer. Lian Li adopted the SFX/SFX-L PSU form factor which allows for a much narrower build than it would with a default ATX PSU. While the PSU are is smaller here, the rest still features plenty of room for mainstream hardware such as full ATX-sized motherboards and long graphics cards.
In spite of its leaner dimensions, the PC-O10 still fits E-ATX and full ATX motherboards as well as smaller micro ATX motherboards and it comes with seven expansion slots for all the add-in cards you might need. It supports multi-GPU setups with VGA cards as long as 340mm and it can accommodate CPU coolers with a height up to 130mm.
The PSU compartment can store up to four 3.5-inch and two 2.5-inch drives, with space in the main glass compartment for an additional 2.5-inch SSD. That should be more than plenty for most people, especially when we consider modern storage drives such as PCIe and M.2 drives.
The bottom panel has mounts for two 120mm or one 140mm intake fan, with space for two 120mm outtake fans on the top panel. The back panel can additionally mount two 80mm fans should the other four fans not be enough. All fan mounts include removable, washable mesh dust filters too, so your setup should stay clean and presentable through the viewing glass.
Liquid cooling is also possible with users being able to install a 240mm radiator fitting 320mm x 120mm x 90mm on the top panel. Water cooling enthusiasts will also appreciate a removable, dedicated pump plate in the glass compartment with grommeted pass-throughs between compartments for elaborate custom loops.
There is also an optional O10-1 PCI riser accessory kit that allows you to show off a dual-slot VGA card vertically in the same manner as the PC-O7. The kit replaces the standard expansion slot panel and includes the latest generation riser cable.
Overall, the PC-019 is quite an impressive chassis. You can also check it out with a full liquid cooling setup in the video below that also shows off all the other features of this chassis.
