Lian Li launches the all new PC-B70 & PC-B71 Tower Chassis

Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2009, Las Vegas – Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd has launched the PC-B70 and PC-B71 full tower chassis. Both cases are made from aluminum sheet metal, and have plenty of room for large numbers of hard drives (HDD) while still incorporating the classic brushed aluminum style and functional design for ease of use and stunning good looks. The PC-B70 has a left side access HDD cage that can accept seven (7) full 3.5 inch hard disk drives. The Hard drives are secured by means of a removable HDD bracket with patented vibration reduction system. While the five Optical bays are an added bonus (the last ODD can be used as 3.5”disk reader).

Lian Li PC-B70Both towers stand at 220 x 595 x 590mm (W,H,D). The PC-B71 is different via the lower part of the front bezel which has an integrated HDD Hot swappable SATA cage with a front facing securely lockable door. The HDD Cage is cooled via two (2) 140mm blue lit LED fans. The fans are filtered with removable, washable nylon filters. The easy access to the hot swap Raid HDD backplate via the front lockable door makes the PC-B71 convenient while still retaining the good looks found in every Lian Li chassis.

Tool-less storage design
The PC-B71 HDD Cage houses 7x 3.5” hot swappable HDD bays supporting RAID arrays and for those who change HDD’s frequently, keeping your rig cool and well ventilated but also segmenting the various parts for optimal cooling and functionality. Anti-vibration couplings are integral to the structure and concept, with simple elegance and convenience foremost in the design.

The PC-B70 HDD cages are also easy to use and tool-less. The HDD’s will fit snugly with secure brackets that are mounted conveniently and easily. They slide into the HDD cage and are clipped into place to prevent movement and vibration from spreading throughout the chassis while making the HDD’s easy to remove and swap out.

Both chassis have easy to use tools-less CD-ROM claspers and tool-less PCI card retention systems.

Noise reducing side panels
Both chassis are fitted with tool-less clips for easy installation and removal of the side panels. The side panels are covered with sound insulation foam and anti-vibration rubber strips on the edges sealing the connection between the side panel and case.

Easy CPU heatsink installation and cable management
The motherboard tray is removable and has extra holes for additional ventilation, a large area opened up behind the CPU region facilitates easy removal and access of CPU heatsink backplates, as well as allowing convenient cable management. The PC-B70 & PC-B71 Chassis supports ATX and micro ATX form factor motherboards.

Large Ball-Bearing fans for ventilation
Both models are fitted with two (2) 12cm Ball-Bearing Fans@1500RPM cooling the chassis from the rear, and two (2) 14cm fans in front. The PC-B70 & PC-B71 Tower receives more than adequate ventilation. Each fan is removable, and fan speed can be adjusted via the three speed Fan speed control device. The seven (7)- PCI slots have a grill structure to improve air through flow.

Lian Li PC-B71The Power Supply can be positioned on top or at the bottom
In both cases the PSU bay can be either on top or at the bottom, with an adjustable bracket to secure extra long PSU’s in place. In addition, rubber strips give insulation as well as prevent annoying vibration. The top mounted multimedia ports include 4x USB 2.0 ports, 1x Firewire (IEEE1394), 1x E-SATA and HD + AC97 Audio ports.

Easy to customize design
Both Chassis have water pipe access holes, should you wish to use them. The structure is very customizable, and almost any aspect can be modified, including the top cover, which removes very easily.

Optional kits expanding features
For both cases optional kits add more features to the chassis. Available kits include additional SATA Hot Swap HDD racks, Fan speed control thermometers, PCI coolers, additional air intake fans, card readers and bezels for the CD/DVD bays.

Hey Kempez, I'm still looking, can you provide your experience of gaming on the 2407WFP? specifically FPS games. Does 6ms or 8ms response times on paper really affect FPS game playing? I've read too much and will go into the shops now

Not had a single issue with the screen whilst gaming. I've played pretty much all of todays modern games and never seen any response time issues.

I will say that the screen prefers having vsynch turned on (like most 60Hz screens), although CSS is fine without.

Reading that review does give the impression that it's a great monitor, but I'd love to see more extensive testing into the input lag of this screen.

As the review stated, Dell always release new revisions of their monitors and as soon as they do, they pretty much become perfect :)
