LIAN LI PC-90 The Hammer Review

Up Close:  Stripped down

The PC-90 comes apart really very easily.  The removal of the front panel is one of the slickest I've come across, dispensing with the feeling as with many cases that you're about to break something as you tug away, the Lian Li simply un-clips gently, with no trailing wires to cope with.  The top of the case is secured via 4 small screws at the front and rear.  Once undone the roof section simply lifts off.

With the case "au-natural" we again get to see Lian Li's attention to detail and high quality.  Each of the front intake fans has removable washable filters.  Above them we see the small PCB for the power and HDD switches and lights as well as the front I/O assembly.  The 5.25 bays are of the tool-less type, with the blanking plate simply pulling away and unclipping with a small amount of force.

Those of you who are averse to the naked Aluminium interior and who like myself simply can't resist getting the rattle cans out and changing the appearance of a case will be pleased to know that the rest of the case comes apart as easily as the parts I've shown.  Most parts are either screwed in place, but the odd structural strut or brace is riveted.

I think you've been more than generous giving it a silver. I wouldn't pay that kind of money for a case, knowing that no matter how much effort I went to that the cabling is still gonna look like a dogs breakfast. Lian-Li need to take their quality and get more innovative the way Silverstone have.Quote

Think you are missing the point of this case though fella, its deffo not a show off case, more a compact but still get a huge rig inside kinda case.

It fits HTPX and EBB boards (dual socket) and yet its still midtower!Quote
