Lian Li PC-B71

Packaging & Externals

Packaging 

The box is much larger than you may first expect, and is a fair indication at the size of the surprise it is concealing. The whole box is printed with the main feature being a photo of the B71 itself, to the left of the photo there is smaller pictures containing the main features of the case. The case inside is protected by polystyrene end caps and a thick plastic bag to help keep it safe whilst it is in transit. Our case, despite its size, arrived fine so the packaging works and given its size the box is somewhat lighter than you may first think.

Externals 

Once you remove the packaging you can get your first look at the externals. The first thought that came to my mind was that its good to have a Lian Li to test finally. The Black Aluminium brush exterior, large plain side panels, clean and crisp lines seem to make me feel at home as it's details like these that, at least personally, I have come to love and expect. The front is dominated by the front grill, which in fact a door to the hot swap hard drive bay. More about that later. One feature I am pleased to see is the optical drive cover which used to be a £15 upgrade option on older Lian Li's. I for one hate the look of a DVD drive exposed at the front of my case, so not having to buy the bezel is a welcomed surprise.

I don't normally go for LianLI's but that does look a nice case (apart from the gash blue fans). Great review as always m8.Quote

As ever though fans are a simple fix, we are hardly likely to keep the back stock black fans anyways are we Quote

Great Review Tom!

im abit conserned about the hot swap bays tho, as the green color of the back plate might get in the way when you're modding?
