Let's be completely honest here. While I found the T60 to be structurally sound and very easy to use, if you aren't careful this test bench can easily tip over. Once it was on my desktop I was able to keep it stable with the AIO cooler in place. No matter what I did with a 120mm tower cooler, it was just too much weight not over the center of gravity. There are two ways to get around this. One is to remove the hanging racks from under the motherboard tray, and just install the tray in the lowest position. The second way to get around this is to find a different cooling solution, whether it be water cooling as I did, or a different style air cooler. There is a third option, but that involves removing the handle, or top cross member. While it would give you all the room you need, you lose the portability of the T60 at that point.
What I loved about the T60 is a long list. Ease of access to all your components, quickly removable motherboard tray, removable hard drive rack, excellent workmanship, and a sexy black anodized finish just to get me started. It comes with all the wiring needed to get under way, it offers a way to hide wiring, has two heights the tray can be positioned, offers room for a 2.5" drive, and took me all of about thirty minutes to assemble, excluding the components. Once I got all the small things sorted out, I was very pleased with the ability of the Lian Li PITSTOP T60.
Priced around $100 USD as I received it, or even at $119 USD for the red version, it is worth every penny. I would have gladly paid a little extra to have the fan cooling plate as a standard component, but in benching and tweaking the front panel audio and USB aren't really needed. Comparing this to what I have seen, it bests something like the Antec Skeleton, and can hold its own against the much more expensive Banchetto. On top of the fact that it can do everything that they can, even if it requires an optional part or two, Lian Li has won me over again.
