Lian Li Tyr PC-X500 Case Review

Tyr PC-X500 is an all-aluminum mid-tower case that Lian Li will be launching very soon, featuring two 5.25” bays, one external 3.5” bay and four internal 3.5” bays in two hard disk drive cages, plus four 120 mm fans with a speed control circuit. It uses a very unique design, being shorter than traditional tower-style cases. This was accomplished by moving the external bays to the side of the case instead of being located on the front of the case. We had the opportunity of reviewing this case before it reaches the market. Check it out.

By the way, Lian Li will release a full-tower version of Tyr PC-X500, called Tyr PC-X2000.

On Figures 1 and 2 you have an overall look from this case. See how it is shorter than traditional tower cases – which is great to save space on your desktop – and how the external bays are located on the side of the case. You can choose using your external drives (optical drives and floppy disk drive) on either side of the case, as the case provides openings for the installation of external drives on both sides. This solution looks good if you leave your case on your desktop or even on the floor, but if you have a piece of furniture with a place for installing a tower PC this case won’t work.

As you can see in Figure 3 there is nothing on the front panel (activity LEDs can be found on the upper right corner) and it can be removed for you to have access to the available washable dust filter, see Figure 4.
