Lian Li PC-A07 – Internals
One feature of Lian Li cases which I always liked, is that the inside of the case seems high quality also, with all the surfaces either brushed aluminium (if they’re the inside the outer panels) or silver aluminium for mounting platforms.
The PCI brackets are held with an innovative tool-less system that are probably the best of these type of bracket retention systems I’ve ever seen. The clips are operated by simply lifting them up to release the brackets, and down to hold them in place, that simple.
At the front end of the case are duel 140mm fans which light up when turned on. There’s also a large HDD cage with 7 slots for hard drives.
On the floor, base panel, of the case is this line of plastic clips which hold PSU cables in place to aide cable management.
The PSU mounting position is rubber mounted to help reduce vibration noise, and allows a small gap for the downturned fan to suck air in to the unit.
When the PSU is fitted, you use the mounting clip to lock it into place; believe me with the screws and clips in place your PSU isn’t going anywhere.
The "back" of the motherboard tray has a large slot around the CPU which I assume aids cooling a little, as a bit of air can flow around the back of the motherboard "underneath" the CPU. There’s also a large ammount of space at the back for cable management making it possible to hide most unecessary cabling in place.
