    Default Preview: Lian Li PC-TR1 "Spider"

    I found some information and a video about an upcoming case from lian-li for miniITX benchmarking and system prototyping. The PC-TR1 is shaped like a spider. And while not the most affordable benchmark chassis, particularly as a miniITX rig it will definitely stand out on your workbench.

    Currently it looks like it will be $200 when it becomes available.

    The folks at TechPowerUp already got their hand on a preview version of this case and posted a full review link

    Personally I'd like to see someone mod this with a protective cover for hardware and use it at a LAN parties.

    I could probably build an identical case with improvements for less than that.

    Won't even work for an LN2 pot. Antec makes a mini version of their skeleton case

    Is it April 1st already?
    People are stupid; given proper motivation, almost anyone will believe almost anything. Because people are stupid, they will believe a lie because they want to believe it's true, or because they are afraid it might be true. Peoples heads are full of knowledge, facts, and beliefs, and most of it is false, yet they think it all true. People are stupid; they can only rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool.

    Horrible. All the benefits of a small motherboard are lost when the case has a larger footprint than most 19" CRT monitors.

    I could do a Fuchikoma / Tachikoma case!! It's very pricey though.

    This is a beautiful case for those people with excess cash, and little time to do their own nodding. Excess cash being the main detractor from the piece of art that it is. If I got my hands on one, I'd probably sell it and buy half a dozen cheaper cases to play with.
    Good review T. I am curious though, do you guys get to keep the toys they send you to play with?
