As with any
hobby, there are your avid enthusiasts and there are those
who like to take the things to the next level. We all
see this in some shape or form on a daily basis. Every
neighborhood has an old man that is always in his driveway polishing
his car. He is the classic example of a car
enthusiast. Then there are the hot rodders who are
always rebuilding, modifying and dressing up their classic
old cars. These are the guys who are taking it to a
higher level. Another example of this can be found in avid movie-goers.
There are some who love to go to Star Wars or Star Trek
movies because they love the story line and characters.
Then there are those who like to go to the movies dressed up as their
character, reciting movie lines and re-enacting scenes,
leaving the rest of us scratching our heads. Then
there is the every growing PC enthusiast crowd.
that case modding is becoming more and more popular these
days. Several large websites like CrazyPC dedicate
themselves to offering the latest hardware for people who
want more out of the rigs. Some will simply buy a
motherboard with a colored PCB, while others are adding
lights, windows and anything else that will make their rig
look special. Today we have a unit that definitely
falls in the later category. CrazyPC has put together
the Biohazard Case MOD, which matches a high quality Lian-Li
case with some impressive laser cut designs. Let's
take a look!

with Velcro pads for easy mounting and zip ties are included
for keeping wires tidy. An instruction sheet is
included, however, we do feel that the instructions are
overly simplistic, especially for users unfamiliar with this type
The Lian-Li PC-60 Case:
When we first laid our eyes on
the Lian-Li PC-60 case, we were impressed to say the least.
With its brushed aluminum
finish and construction, this case was not only good
looking, it was extremely light weight. Another
positive of the PC-60 is its toolless design.
Virtually every portion of the case is secured with
thumbscrews, making it very easy to work with. In fact, the only time we needed to use a screwdriver was when we were mounting the motherboard. The
case comes with a total of four 80mm fans, one mounted on
the rear, one top mounted and two located at the lower front
of the case. Mounted at the lower front of the case,
the two intake fans are dual purpose, providing intake
airflow as well as cooling the hard drives. The unit is also
equipped with a filter grill enclosure to minimize dust
pollution in the case.
The front cover has a Power and
Reset button as well as a bright red hard drive LED and blue
power LED. The Reset button is significantly smaller
than the power button so there is little chance of mistaking
one for the other, nevertheless, we feel that it could be a little
larger. As it stands now, resetting the unit requires
the use of a pen or very skinny fingers. The system
comes with a removable drive cage that supports up to 3 3.5
inch drives. The cage can be removed for easy access
by removing two thumbscrews that secure it in place.
