has announced its latest product, the PC-9 mid-tower case. With dimensions set at 209x435x488mm (WxHxD) this case is rather small, at least compared to recently released Lian Li products. The design is just as you would expect it to be when you hear the Lian Li name, high quality, simple and appealing.
The new case is made of aluminum with a brushed anodized finish and comes with features like top-mounted USB, Firewire and eSATA ports. The interior comes with five 5.25-inch bays, a removable SATA cage that comes with a hot-swap feature, it can hold four drives and is cooled by a side-placed 120mm fan that spins at up to 1500RPM.
The rest of the cooling is done by a 120mm rear exhaust and a 120mm intake front fan, while the PSU is placed at the bottom of the case. The new PC-9 is even ready for water-cooling as it comes with pre-drilled holes, and the entire case is fitted with anti-vibration strips, clips and grommets for maximum noise reduction.
According to the press release, the new Lian Li PC-9 is already available with a suggested price tag of US $190.
