Lian Li PC-C32

Cases

Conclusion

The thing that’s hard to explain with this case is the engineering skill that has gone into it. There are many cases that pack features in, but bits don’t line up, screw threads aren’t perfect and you have to force bits into place. The Lian Li PC-C32 is nothing like that; every screw glides in, everything slots in perfectly and it just screams quality.

There are downsides to this, including the price, the lack of cooling (but has the ability to mount another two fans), only two 5.25” bays and reasonably loud operation. Thankfully, the last two points can be nullified if you use your own fans or purchase the additional cooling module.

Overall this is a solid case, with features that you don’t normally find on a desktop enclosure, like the rear-loading PSU or rack mounting ability. If you are looking for a horizontal desktop case, or even a media PC, give the Lian Li PC-C32 a good look.
