Lian Li PC-A07 – Externals
The case like the box, is unsurprisingly giant, and has the typical Lian Li brushed aluminium casing which is finished beautifully.
Atop the case are the reset and on/off switches, alongside the front panel ports which are made up of: USB, eSATA, firewire and 3.3mm jacks.
Further down the front panel, under the 5 3/4 inch drive bays are several grilled, slots in the casing to allow the intake of cold air. I’ll be honest and say I don’t think they look that great, but maybe that’s just me.
The back of the case looks a little different than a normal one; or at least, a normal case plus something extra. For this case you have the standard layout of PCI brackets, 120mm fan and a hole for the rear ports. Along with that stuff, you also get dual water loop ports that are rubber circled to hold the tubing in place, a large grilled section at the top of the case allows for the exhausting of yet more air, as behind it is another 120mm fan. At the base is where the PSU is mounted, which should allow for the heat produced by the PSU to not affect the rest of the case, and vice versa.
On the underside of the PC-A70F are 4 small feet with rubber bases, and aluminium surrounds which look fancy, and support the case well.
Removing the front panel is very simple utilising some small plastic clips that just lock in and out with a little pressure.
Removing the front panel you get access to the two front 140mm fans, each comes fitted with a removable, washable dust filter to keep that crap away from your internal hardware.
These fans light up oh so pretty when the case is turned on, really making the front of the case look so much better.
