We've seen a handful of affordable enthusiast cases debut lately, but nobody's forgetting about the high end. Lian Li, for one, has just announced a pair of enclosures with a plethora of enthusiast-friendly features, like a tool-less design, ample internal capacity, and mounting points for two power supplies.
The PC-A70F and PC-A71F share the same internal design, but their front panels differ. The former has a removable bezel with a set of nine horizontal gaps covering the dual 140-mm, 1,000-RPM intake fans. Meanwhile, the PC-A71F has a door with air holes on the sides, and it covers its dual intake fans with more conventional-looking vents. Lian Li bills that one as a quieter offering.
Otherwise, both enclosures feature ten 3.5" drive bays, two 120-mm exhaust fans spinning at 1,500 RPM, a removable anti-vibration hard drive cage, two rubberized holes for a liquid-cooling system, and "multi-media I/O ports" on the top panel. You can expect them to arrive at local distributors in late August, Lian Li says. The PC-A70F will cost $229, and the PC-A71F (the one with the door) will set you back $259.
