Lian Li's T1 Pitstop PC Case Looks Like a Spider

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 36 comments

Danger!

It takes a lot to produce a really innovative computer case. Sure, enthusiasts produce a lot of great case-mods but for every truly great chassis we see from a manufacturer, there are ten 'nothing special' cases.

We're not sure if the T1 Pitstop from Lian Li falls into the great or 'meh' category, but they sure did go all out marketing. The T1 Pitstop is an open air a Mini-ATX case with room for a full size PSU. Oh and it's shaped like a spider.

Check out the extremely cheesy and slightly annoying video below.

    Cheesy is a gross understatement for describing this video. And I thought Hollywood was bad!

    Too bad there aren't any mini-ITX motherboards that can overclock well enough to where one would need to use liquid nitrogen. Lol!

    Just the PC case for Erwin the AI to use (from UserFriendly.Org)

    Add a couple of robotic arms & hands to case and Erwin would probably be running around shooting everyone in sight or he'd be up to some other kind of mischief!

    Looks like a walking red table made of cheap iron.
    Stupid ad, stupid looking case.

    "In the year 2010, a company attempted to fuse a new type of Atom with a spider, in an attempt to make a faster, stronger one. But something went horribly wrong..."
    It looks like a great conversation piece for your next LAN party, but for regular use on an everyday computer, I don't think so. However, as an open test bench... I'll continue using a rack, thanks.

    What, nobody's worried about dust collection causing electrical shortages? I'd hate to have to keep this cleaned properly!

    I have never seen dust cause a short to be honest.
    @all
    On a side note. Who the hell benchmarks on Mini ITX boards? Did I hear that right?

    Just about any kid in shop class could build this themselves.

    But ah, is irony lost on you neckbeards? I'm pretty sure they're aware that it's so cheesy.

    It's ugly in an almost agricultural way, it's cheap looking, noisy, and takes up a lot of space, but only takes a small motherboard.

    I don't know what they were thinking. I guess this is from the people that made the fish tank case, so anything is possible.

    What's next? A hippo?
