Lian Li to Showcase Moving Chassis at Computex 2012

It's almost Computex time again, taking place from June 5 to June 9, 2012 in Taipei, Taiwan. Lian Li will be in attendance showcasing two special edition PC cases that actually move. The PC-CK101 will resemble a traditional steam engine train and move up and down the tracks at the Lian Li booth. The PC-Q15 will resemble an SUV and drive around in loops.

"While the PC-CK101 even has smoke coming out of the exhaust, it is not just a model," the company said. "The PC-CK101 supports 3.5” and 2.5” HDDs, a slim ODD, and USB 3.0. Additionally, the SUV-esque PC-Q15 adds an automotive touch to Lian Li's theme this year. This PC-Q15, which is specially designed for Computex, will be driving around in loops at Lian Li's booth."

Lian Li also plans to reveal four new cases during the show. One will be designed for extreme noise reduction that has no visible vents -- only a carefully calculated sized intake vent underneath the chassis. Another will be a server level chassis that can hold an HPTX motherboard and has space to hold up to twenty 3.5-inch HDDs.

Also included in the new group of four will be an upgrade of the PC-X2000F, which holds an EATX motherboard with lots of tool-less features and hotswap capabilities. Lian Li will also introduce a skinny ATX chassis with lots of storage potential that can hold VGA cards up to 370-mm in length.

"In addition to these highlighted products Lian Li will be displaying their full line of mini, mid, and full tower elegant brushed aluminum chassis with the high quality build and features that are to be expected from Lian Li," the company said, adding that Lancool's latest steel chassis will also be on display.

    Christmas time would be awesome! Imagine having you, or your kids waking up in the morning to see one of those going around the tree. They would open it up to see an entirely new rig! :)

    If someone makes one of the Bismarck, I'm all in.

    They should also make the Hood, which would be suitable for only AMD processors, since their performance has sunk to levels that would roughly approximate the Hood after Bismarck's fifth salvo. They already have the smoke mastered, so they're part of the way there.
