Lian Li PC-X2000F Case Review

The PC-X2000F is an-aluminum, full-tower case, with several unique features, targeted to rich enthusiast. Let’s see what USD 500 can buy.

The first unique feature you will notice on the PC-X2000F is the location of the external 5.25” bays. Instead of being located on the front panel of the case, they are installed perpendicular to the case and accessible from the side. There are four 5.25” bays and they can be accessed either from the left panel or from the right panel. This way you can install your 5.25” devices facing the left side or facing the right side, depending on where you will place the case in your workplace.

As you can see in Figures 1 and 2, there is an air intake opening between the side panels and the front panel.

Since the 5.25” bays were moved to the side of the case, the front panel doesn’t have anything on it, except for the power and HDD LEDs on the upper right corner.

Pulling the aluminum cover of the front panel – a very easy task, by the way – you have access to three 140 mm fans, which are protected by a huge washable air filter, which is very easy to be removed from the case.

These fans carry the part number LI121425BE, but it seems that Lian Li sells them as CF-1410B (go figure). They rotate at 1,000 rpm and produce a noise level of 25.4 dBA, and use a three-pin connector, meaning that you can install them on your motherboard in order to monitor their speed. Each fan comes with a peripheral power adapter for you to install them directly on the power supply, if you want.

In regular PC cases, the front fans cool down the hard drives, but this is not necessarily the case with the PC-X2000F. The top two front 140 mm fans are located right in front of the motherboard, while the bottom one is located in front of the second hard disk drive cage – the first cage is located on top of the case besides the 5.25” bays.
