Lian Li has just announced the release of a new brushed aluminum full tower case with a versatile cooling design and removable motherboard tray in North America. The PC-A79 supports HPTX, E-ATX, XL-ATX, ATX, and microATX motherboards, comes with twelve 5.25” external bays, nine 3.5” internal bay, eight 2.5” internal bays, eleven slots for expansion cards, four USB 3.0 ports, and one e-SATA port.
On the side panel there are two 120 mm fans for additional cooling that automatically shut off when the side panel is removed. There is also a 120 mm exhaust fan in the rear, pulling out the hot air.
The removable motherboard tray gives unhampered freedom to builders when setting up their system. The motherboard tray also features large cutouts for the CPU and rubber grommets for neat cable management.
Multiple video cards up to 350 mm in length (13.7”) can be installed thanks to the eleven expansion slots, and CPU coolers up to 145 mm in height (5.7”) are supported.
Two rear wheels on the bottom of the PC-A79 allow the chassis to be easily positioned or moved while the front feet add stability when stationary.
The PC-A79 will be available in black (PC-A79B) in North America at the beginning of September for the suggested retail price of USD 389.
