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
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
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.
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.
looks decent, I'm thiking of getting a Multimedia HTPC soon.
