Lian Li may have started out as a maker of peculiar enclosures, like a mini-ITX case shaped like a red spider, but it has since established a normal product line as well.Its latest case is called PC-9N and uses the mid-tower form factor. Thus, it can house configurations based on ATX and micro-ATX motherboards.
In fact, Lian Li implemented what it calls a “new motherboard mounting system providing enhanced cooling and performance.”
Known as the railing mount technology, it improves airflow behind the motherboard by not having an actual mainboard tray, but some rails where the screws go and hollowed out space everywhere else.
The case also holds three 3.5-inch drive bays, one 2.5-inch bays, three 5.25-inch bays, a removable front panel, a hidden top I/O panel (USB 3.0 x 2, audio and mic).
Lian Li will start shipping the PC-9N chassis in the US by the end of the month (February 2013), for $109.99 / 83.42 Euro.
