The Top Panel
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

On the top panel of the Lian Li PC-8FI you will find two USB 3.0 ports, one eSATA port, and the audio jacks. The USB 3.0 ports use regular USB A connectors on their other end, so you will need to install them to USB 3.0 ports located on the motherboard rear panel. To pass the USB 3.0 cables to the outside of the case, you will need to use one of the expansion slots and cover it with a special cover that comes with the product. If your motherboard doesn’t have four USB 3.0 ports on its rear panel, you can use two internal USB 2.0 ports of your motherboard, using the provided adapter.

The PC-8FI comes with a place for you to install a 140 mm fan on its top panel, which comes covered with an aluminum part. The case comes with a mesh to be used with this optional top fan.
