Lian Li announced their newest chassis and this time it is quite a bit bigger than the recently announced PC-Q21. The new chassis is called the PC-X510 and it is a beautiful premium mid-tower sized chassis with plenty of room for cooling and hardware in its 3-chamber design.
The Case is trisected into three airflow chambers. The bottom one is intended for the PSU, the middle for your motherboard and graphics card, and the top one is for your storage equipment and possible extra radiator mount. Three 120mm fans pull air through two long intakes along the front of the side panels and each of them is covered by a washable magnetic mesh air filter strip. You can mount an additional two 120mm fans at the top and central compartments while the PSU exhausts the bottom compartment itself.
The top compartment of the PC-X510 features two of the removable drive trays that we’ve seen more of Lian Li’s cases have. They are mounted on shock-absorbing rubber grommets to provide a silent operation even when you’re using mechanical drives. Each tray holds two drives for a total of four 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch drives of your choice. Those who do not need as much storage space can remove them in order to create more space for ambitious cooling setups. One of the drive trays, or additionally bought ones, can also be mounted on the rear of the motherboard tray for even more drive capabilities. Last but not least, you can mount another two drives on the top of the PSU shroud, making it a total of 8 possible drives in this chassis.
There is plenty of room for normal sized and large hardware such as full-sized ATX motherboards and long graphics cards. You got eight expansion slots at your disposal, enough for four double-slot graphics cards for example. Graphics cards up to 330mm and CPU coolers up to 180mm can easily be mounted into this gorgeous Lian Li PC-X510 chassis.
The front panel features four USB 3.0 along with the obligatory HD audio connections. There is also an included fan controller, but it is located at the top rear instead of the top of the chassis.
If your interest has been sparked for this new Lian Li chassis, then you don’t have to wait that long. It should be available early October at Overclockers UK. The downside, it won’t come cheap. The full aluminium chassis with tempered glass will set you back £329.90.
