Lian-Li Intros the PC-TU100 Mini-ITX 'Suitcase'

Lian Li is introducing a new chassis, the PC-TU100. This is a Mini-ITX chassis designed to mimic a suitcase, symbolizing how easy it is to transport. The case itself is 158 x 275 x 242 mm and weighs only 1.77 kg. Inside the enclosure buyers will be able to house a Mini-ITX motherboard as well as an SFX form-factor power supply no longer than 170 mm. Graphics cards can be no longer than 190 mm and may only occupy two expansion slots on the rear I/O.

The enclosure also houses up to two 2.5" drives and a slim optical drive. There is no room for a 3.5" drive. Cooling is handled by a single front 120 mm fan which generates positive pressure, also covered by a dust filter.

External connectivity is taken care of by two USB 3.0 ports, HD analog audio ports and a power button.

Availability is expected around the end of June, with an MSRP of $110.

    Can't wait for the Ncase. If Lian-Li does manufacture the Ncase eventually, I hope they put all their efforts into it.

    Ooooo a slightly larger version that can fit regular sized PSU and maybe 250mm graphics would be awesome. What's the best card you can fit that's under 190mm?

    Great case, except for the increasingly-useless optical bay.

    Nice. Reloading this page causes double-posting, and you can't delete it.

    they actually reviewed this a few days ago at Anandtech, and as good as this case looks, the guys over at anandtech really didn't like it. I recommend reading the review before buying!

    reviewed by anandtech and to me, this case is nothing but a nice aluminum box with a handle.
