Lian Li's D8000 Chassis Detailed, Fits Twenty 3.5-inch Drives

By - Source: Techpowerup | B 26 comments

This 26-pound behemoth will certainly satisfy all your storage needs, and fortunately it has wheels.

The Lian Li PC-8000 features an all aluminum, full-ATX tower case measuring at 405(W) x 628(D) x 572(H) mm. The case has room to store up to twenty 3.5-inch hard drives, and can be modified to hold 2.5-inch hard drives with a mounting bracket. The PC-D8000 holds so many drives, that the entire front of the case consists of 3.5-inch and 5.25-inch drive bays.
                                                                         


The features of the PC-D8000 aren't limited to storage either. The case includes a removable motherboard tray, allowing for quick external upgrades. The chassis can accommodate large graphics cards measuring up to 16-inchs in length, as well as ATX and HPTX motherboards. It is no surprise that given the size of the case, it features ample room for two power supply units.

The Lian Li PC-D8000 is expected to be available for approximately $300.

    So is this a huge desktop or a server case, cause how many gaming rigs have 20 hard drives unless your the type of person that always has to keep up with Joneses.

    dual PSUs are more frequent in server applications, and this case appears to have room for those. IM guessing SOHO server apps, or someone with a Sh-- ton of liquid cooling hardware, and a penchant for data redundancy. and deep pockets.

    20 * 4 = 80 Terabytes. Similar Lian-Li cases cost around $450

    If somebody were to make a gaming PC with that case and try to utilize all of the features they would have one hell of a PC. I can't even think of a computer build that would require dual PSUs. You would need dual or quad xeons, 100+ gbs of ram, 20Hdds in raid, dual gtx 690s, sound card, media card, etc

    Sweet, time to go buy one up along with a decent pus and some raid controllers. I have enough ide drives piled up enough to be worth between 2-3tb with drives as small as 1gb. Make one hell of a win98 monster :)

    If you want that sort of capability, check CaseLabs. Much Better IMO.

    I see some heavy water cooling potential in this rig, are those 120mm fan mounts I see there? Especially with the separate compartment everything could be so nice and neat, and since it has a ton of drive bays you can stick 3.5 drive bay reservoirs and other stuff. Don't know about you guys but I see some potential here.

    For its size, you sure have tonnes of room available to add tonnes of water cooling and Bling to the case. And also Notice, there are 11 PCI-E Slots rather than 10.

    The Obsidian 800 has some competition.

    Together anything (in a very limited sense) is possible.

    Someone buy forty Samsung 830 256 GB SSDs in RAID 0 with $1200 dedicated RAID card just to boot up Windows 7 under a sec.

    The Dual PSU capability will be most useful for redundancy, not for doubling up power output.

    Years ago, Samsung did a promo in which they did just that. Old SSD tech, much slower than what we have now - and tremendously more expensive too. Imagine... larger capacity at a significantly lower price - with extremely high performance compared to previously. I would love to see this.

    Maybe (couldn't find anything with a 5s google search), but it's probably obsolete by now since the damn things are ongoing.
