Lian Li introduced four new prototype computer cases for 2021

Upcoming enclosures include the A4-H2O mini-ITX enclosure, created in collaboration with Daniel Hansen of the German Dan Cases enclosures.

Lian Li has unveiled four new computer cases at a virtual Digital Expo live on YouTube today – the full-tower V3000 +, the O11D Evo, which continues the popular O11D series, and the A4-H2O and Q58, which support Mini-ITX motherboards.

Both mini-ITX enclosures rely on a so-called sandwich layout, in which the video card is placed on the back of the motherboard using a PCIe riser cable. The layout is familiar from Dan Cases A4-SFX, among others. A4-H2O is a kind of spiritual successor to the above-mentioned case. Lian Li has designed the novelty case in collaboration with Dan Cases’ Daniel Hansen.

Externally, the A4-H2O is remarkably reminiscent of the original A4-SFX with its aluminum construction, but instead of just over 7 liters, its size has been increased to 10.4 liters. With the increased size, the case can accommodate 315 mm long video cards with a maximum thickness of 2.7 card slots, in addition to which a support for a 240 mm heat sink has been introduced to the ceiling. For storage, the case holds two 2.5-inch discs. The power supply support has remained unchanged in the SFX size range.

According to Lian Lin, efforts have also been made to bring the price of A4-H2O as low as possible, but the official selling price has not yet been disclosed. The impact of Lian Lin’s larger manufacturing capacity on the price is expected to be significant. I have already been able to test the case A YouTube player known as OptimumTech according to the case will go on sale in the third quarter at a suggested retail price of $ 120 on a PCIe 3.0 riser. In addition, with an additional investment of 30-40 euros, a PCIe 4.0 riser would also be available for sale.

Q58, on the other hand, fully represents Lian Li’s own production. The case has a size of 14.3 liters, which is almost four liters more than A4-H2O. As a counterweight to its larger size, the Q58 comes with support for video cards up to 320mm long with three slots thick and two slim fans placed in front of the card, or alternatively for ATX power supplies. It is impossible to use both at the same time, as the ATX power supply support is enabled by the modular design and its utilization reduces the space left on the video card.

There is also more space in the case than A4-H2O for the liquid scooter. The roof of the Q58 now has space with a maximum of 280 mm or an ATX power supply for a maximum of 140 mm heat sink. The side panels of the housing are made of glass at the top and mesh panel at the bottom, which allows you to see inside the housing, but also to rotate the air. The side panels open on hinges as the glass top opens up and the bottom down. The front and roof panels on the Q58 are aluminum.

The Q58 can be seen by pre-testing the case Hardware Canucks in a YouTube video. According to Hardware Canucks, the case will go on sale this summer at a suggested retail price of $ 119.

Named the V3000 +, the full tower case is an advanced model of the manufacturer’s original V3000 and also shares many of the familiar looks. The front panel of the housing is available as either a mesh panel or a solid aluminum panel. The lower parts of both sides are perforated, while the other side is made of tempered glass on the left side and aluminum on the right side.

As expected, the V3000 + can accommodate a wide variety of components in a full tower case. It accommodates eATX-sized motherboards, up to three 480mm chillers in combination with one 360mm chiller, and a total of 16,120mm fans and 16 3.5- or 19.5-inch drives. With ATX motherboards, it is also possible to install another computer configuration on the ITX motherboard in the enclosure. The power supply can also hold two power supplies – one ATX and one SFX power supply. The V3000 + has ended the test in advance For a YouTube player named GGF. The exact release date or price of the 3000+ has not yet been revealed by Lian Li.

Lian Li was the last to introduce the O11D Evo, which continues his popular O11D series at his Digital Expos. In terms of external dimensions, the novelty corresponds to the older O11 Dynamic. In practice, this is an air-optimized version of the original O11 Dynamic. The roof and right side panel of the O11D Evo are made entirely of aluminum mesh, which also has dust filters. The front panel and left side, on the other hand, are still tempered glass.

In addition to the network panels, the O11D Evo’s upgrades include a demonstrable RGB light strip separating the glass and aluminum parts of the front panel and roof, as well as a redesigned video card placement option – with the riser cable Already helped with the design of the original O11D German overclocker Roman Hartung known as Der8auer has made a video for YouTube about the upcoming novelty box. The official release date or pricing for the O11D Evo has not yet been released.
