Lian-Li PC30 Mini-Tower Review - Lian-Li PC30 - Page 5

Lian-Li (pronounced "Liann Lee") are known for producing a range of high quality and attractive aluminium cases for the enthusiast user. Aluminium cases are set aside from the rest for their ease of modifying and improved heat dissipation over cheaper cases. Lian-Li have cases ranging from fully decked out server towers, to mid towers with factory installed window sides and all the way down to mini towers, as well as various other accessories. Today Asher "Acid" Moses takes a look at the compact Lian-Li PC30 Mini-Tower case, does it have what it takes to house your precious parts? Read on and find out!

Conclusion

 

Overall I was very happy with the Lian-Li PC30. It features the most drive bays I have ever seen on a mini-tower case and being made of aluminium makes it ideal for people who transport their PC often. The fact that it is built out of aluminium also results lower overall temperatures, as you saw from our tests.

 

Like most of the Lian-Li range, the PC30 is very well built and all sharp edges have been smoothed out for hazard-free installation. The removable motherboard tray and thumbscrews are handy additions that make installation that much simpler. Also, The case fans are a great way to cool down your hard drive/s and the fan speed controller is a handy addition for those of you that require a noise-free system.

 

CoolerGuys have the Lian-Li PC30 priced at $US119.95, which for such a small case, is very expensive considering that you could get a standard steel mini-tower case for about half the price. That said, the Lian-Li PC30 has to be the best mini-tower case I have ever tested and in my opinion, it is definitely worth paying a little extra for.
