Lian Li launched its latest enclosure, the PC-T70, which was initially revealed during CES. The PC-T70 is an open-air test bench with a special twist: An additional kit may be installed to turn the PC-T70 into a closed-air case.
The Lian Li PC-T70 looks exactly how you might imagine a test bench. It offers open-air clearance to make swapping components easy, plus the back panel can be removed for even less obstruction. The motherboard mounts support E-ATX, ATX, and Micro-ATX boards. Surrounding the mounts are six pass-throughs for routing cables to your PSU and drive mounts. The floor panel in the bottom chamber supports PSUs up to 13 inches long; a 360mm radiator; and either one 3.5” drive plus five 2.5” drives, or two 3.5” drives and one 2.5” drive.
The PC-T70 can be transformed into a closed-air case via an optional T70-1 upgrade kit, which includes two additional side panels, a different rear panel, and an acrylic cover. The two side panels feature cutouts to mount either a 240mm or 280mm radiator on each panel. The bottom floor panel can also support enough reservoirs and pumps should you choose to mount two radiators on the side panels and one radiator on the bottom. With the acrylic panel attached, CPU coolers up to 7.09 inches high are supported.
The Lian Li PC-T70 is available now for $190 and comes in black or white. The T70-1 kit is offered separately, but pricing hasn’t been revealed. Lian Li also offers the PC-T70FX, which offers both the PC-T70 and T70-1 kit in a single package.
