Inside The Lian Li PC-X1000 Super Tower Case - Continued

Untying and straightening out the front I/O wiring, I was quite surprised to see the length of the cabling. As you can see, getting the wiring where it needs to be on your motherboard of choice shouldn't be an issue at all. All the 140mm fans have both 3-pin connections and 3-pin to 4-pin Molex adapters, and are plenty long enough for easy connection later in the build.

Taking a closer look, the front I/O wiring has connections for two USB 2.0 ports (double wired to supply the 4 ports), one IEEE 1394, and a HD / AC97 Audio connections. There is also the power, reset, HDD activity, and the power LED headers. The adapters on the fans can also be seen a bit more clearly here.

In the top left corner you will find a 4-pin Molex connection as well as four 3-pin fan connections. These are there to make it possible to control up to five total fans off of one switch.

On the rear of the chassis, just left of the exhaust fan is a three stage switch. This can be set to low, medium and high depending on personal needs in chassis cooling.

Looking at the actual PCB, you can see there are three total connection points. Now you can supply the four fans with the dual splitters on CON1 and CON2, and either find another splitter for CON3 or just use it singularly with one fan connected. I found no literature on the maximum output of the fan headers, nor do I know enough about resistors to do the math.

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming, I caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new. I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals technology.
