Lian Li has formally launched its PC-D600 series cases, which first made an appearance at this year's Computex. It measures 382 x 525 x 415 mm (W x H x D), weighs 9.2 kg empty and features a dual-compartment design with two equally sized sections for drive bays. The motherboard is separated by an aluminum partition with valved cable management holes.
The PC-D600's right-side compartment includes ten 5.25-inch drive cages, one of which holds the front panel header and six 3.5-inch to 5.25-inch adapters. The compartment also includes provisions on the floor to latch 2.5-inch drives and a generous clearance for liquid cooling components, including radiators of up to 420 x 140 mm.
Moving on to the left-side compartment, the motherboard tray can house E-ATX motherboards with support for SSI-CEB, the PSU bay, a 120 mm rear exhaust and three 140 mm front intakes that can also be used to mount another 420 x 140 mm radiator.
Though Lian Li hasn't provided information on the PC-D600's pricing or availability, the company has announced that it will be offered choices of black (PC-D600B) and silver (PC-D600A). The launch video is available after the break.
I still have my old Chenbro A9891 Netserver case sitting around here somewhere...
Put the PSU on the drive side, and you run the risk of needing extenders for all power connections to the MB & GPU(s) in addition to possible impacts on air-flow.
Put the PSU on MB side, and you only need to extend power for devices in the drive bays.
My experience with the old Chenbro Netserver case says that Lian Li made the better choice here--4-wire device power extensions are a lot cheaper...
