Lian-Li launches low profile PC-C39 Multimedia HTPC Chassis

Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd has launched the PC-C39 multimedia chassis. This low profile HTPC case comes in two shades, namely silver and black to match in seamlessly with your current home theater décor. The elegant diamond cut sublimely carved into the front face gives the brushed all aluminum chassis a style of its own. The slim lined PC-C39 stands at 435mm x 97mm x 400mm (W, H, D) and weighs in at 3.65kgs. This stylish chassis combines the traditional class and finery of Lian-Li with some outstanding innovations, such as the all new wireless remote controller and sensor. The chassis itself supports 2x 3.5”HDD’s and 1x 5.25”ODD. The chassis has 4x low profile expansion slots.

Low Profile HTPC Chassis

The PC-C39 supports a micro-ATX form factor. The chassis has hand-made aspects with Lian-Li’s traditional care and attention to detail. The low profile structure has special support via a crossbar, which can be swiveled out the way when installing components. This kind of consideration and attention to detail has made Lian-Li one of the most respected names in Chassis design. In addition the front mounted I/O ports, which include 2x USB 2.0, 1x Firewire 1394, as well as HD+AC97 Audio options. In addition, the wireless sensor and remote control give added value to an already feature rich product which enhances your HTPC experience.

Heat dynamics and Silence

Lian-Li’s hand crafted attention to detail is evident throughout with air vents along the low profile expansion slots, and special anti-vibration spring clips to prevent the panels from rattling, while special rubber grommets prevent the HDD’s from vibration noises. The PC-C39 has 2x 70mm exhaust ball-bearing fans@1500RPM. In combination with the extensive air vents throughout the chassis, cooling has never been more efficient or quieter.

Quality and Craftsmanship

Like all Lian-Li products, these HTPC Multimedia Chassis have the finely honed finish to prevent sharp edges. The internals are modular, so components can be pre-fitted and then installed in stages, allowing an organized and structural design for your DIY HTPC Home Theatre system. Tool-less thumb screws keep the case top panel attached, while a structural support bar adds strength to the case design. Everything is designed to comply with Intel Standards for maximum compatibility. The essence of Lian-Li products is the craftsmanship of the engineering. Intrinsic to the workmanship and quality is the customization which includes a whole host of optional extras that can be purchased to add more features to an already feature rich product.

That is officialy their ugliest case...ever.  Lian Li seems to be doing a lot of releases these days.  On a positive note that looks like some good cooling, compared to whats on the market.

Yeah, I've never really like Lian Li cases. Or for that matter any case that costs that much. Yes cooling may be somewhat better etc. But for 3-500 dollars I can find an equivilant case for 200 at the most and mod it myself. I would say also in the end it will perform better than a Lian Li, and cost several hundred dollars less! Which of course I can throw into other internal hardware and in the end a better machine.
