Don’t throw stones inside Lian-Li’s PC-O8

The wave of new cases from Computex continues. The latest eye-catcher is Lian-Li's PC-O8, a fancy dual-chamber enclosure wrapped in sheets of aluminum and tempered glass:

Like with other dual-chamber designs we've seen, the motherboard is isolated in one half of the case, while the PSU and storage devices get a shared space of their own. But unlike those other bicameral cases, Lian-Li puts the PC-O8's intake fans in the front of the storage and PSU chamber. That might make sense with a liquid-cooling setup, since heated airflow from the radiator won't pass over the graphics card or CPU on its way out of the case. It's a little weird for air-cooling, though.

Hydrophiles can put radiators up to 360 mm long behind the triple front fans. The top and rear walls of the case have mounts for another 240-mm and 120-mm unit, respectively. Air coolers up to 6.7" (170 mm) tall can fit into the motherboard chamber. The PC-08's storage cage holds two 2.5" and up to six 3.5" drives.

The tempered-glass side panels are perfect for showing off the included RGB LED lighting system, which is controlled by way of three blend knobs on the back of the case. Lian-Li didn't announce pricing or availability for this case, but we doubt it'll be cheap.

    So umm… where is the air come from for the motherboard chamber? With PSU chamber having all the intake fans sucking the majority of air in from the side vent, how much can get over there? It’ll have to come from some where but I fear I’ll be pulled from underneath the motherboard and around, heating up the air before it event reaches a heat sink for a CPU or GPU.

    When i see most computer cases i honestly wonder if they’re designed by six year olds. my son would LOVE THIS, and yet I, a thirty year old man, find it ridiculous.

      You have a son too?! I know you adopted a daughter, but didn’t know about a son…

        As a sweatshopking, I think he rotates around his ‘children’ based upon workload.
