Lian Li to Showcase Moving Chassis at Computex 2012

By - Source: Lian Li | B 24 comments

Lian Li will showcase two moving PC cases next week at Computex Taipei 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.

    I guess the gpu is in the front and by the smoke it has to be a 6990!

    I would not want a chassis that weights 41 700 tons!

    uhmm... yea.... Case on wheels that follow a track.... big woop

    How is this even newsworthy? wouldnt the Steam need to be replaced regularly just to get the effect?
    What about track, do they want us to lay a track around the house so my pc can move itself around?

    more i think about it more i think this will only attract idiots.

    the closest to moving chasis that people would want is wheels. not a fucking steam engine. It makes me realy sad that idiots get a job to design such BS, yet there are many people out there who can make 100's if not 1000's of beter chasis that this useles crap cant even compete with.

    Realy sad.

    but if you can get a powerfull enought psu to power at 1.21 gigawatts stream line the track to breake the 90mph mark you can send it to yourself 10 years in the past and get a epik pc.

    I feel like a negative Nancy here, but I don't understand the point of this. Maybe if you have a train fetish - but other than that, it's not uncommonly cool or anything.

    I have a similar sentiment: Just give me something that looks very minimalistic in simple blacks, greys, or whites. Include a breakout box so that I can have all my FPIO on my desktop instead of hiding behind my 27" monitor, or on the floor where most people keep their cases.

    Still, if I was a kid and my dad gave me a 'toy' train like that I would hardly complain :D

    I am pretty sure these are just one-offs to get people to come to the Lian Li booth at the show...

    It wouldn't be so bad if you had a server room for it. Clearly, only water cooling would be appropriate.
