Lian Li PC-TU100 Mini-Tower Chassis
Staring into the face of the PC-TU100, you see a lot of black anodized, brushed aluminum with rounded aluminum caps placed at all four corners. Down the face you are offered a removable cover for a Slim ODD, the backlit power button, a large ventilated area for intake, and an I/O panel at the bottom. This I/O panel contains just a pair of USB 3.0 ports and the HD audio 3.5mm jacks.
The top of the chassis is a flat expanse of more brushed aluminum. Right in the middle of that Lian Li screws on a composite handle from inside the chassis for a very clean finished look, and the portability that many people on the go desire.
The left side of the chassis shows the rivets used to cap the corners, and each side has some thickness, before you get to the removable panel. This side panel offers ventilation at the left side, as this is where the SFX power supply is mounted, and it offers a way to draw in more cold air for it.
Under a pair of slides you immediately run into the rear I/O area, and slim areas of ventilated aluminum around the SFX PSU mounting position. Then at the bottom you are given two expansion slots that are accessed from outside the chassis.
These are the pair of sliders that I mentioned, and as you can tell, they are both set toward the middle of the chassis now. If you were to slide them towards the side panel it is nearest, the panel will lift off for access to remove them.
With the slider now moved toward the left side panel of the chassis, a bar slides out against the corner of the panel and pops it out so that you can get a finger behind it to release the other three ball and socket style latches on the back of them that hold these panels in place.
The right side of the chassis offers the same sized panel that is smaller in all dimensions that the chassis frame. The main difference here is that there is no ventilation, or really anything other than all that brushed aluminum.
Under this chassis you have half round aluminium feet, so be careful, as depending on the surface it is setting on, it may scratch or slide around easily, but they will take more abuse than plastic or rubber feet would. You can also see the ends of the screws here holding in the 2.5" drive brackets on the floor of the chassis inside.
