Lian Li PC-A51 aluminium mid-tower revealed

Posted on Friday, February 14 2014 @ 10:37:47 CET by


Lian Li announces the PC-A51, a new aluminium mid-tower case for ATX and Micro-ATX motherboards. The case has a compact size, it features a reverse airflow design and supports a 240/280mm radiator. There's 30mm of space behind the motherboard tray for cable management and the optical drive bay is hidden behind a stealth cover.
Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd, today announces a new brushed aluminum mid-tower chassis with a reverse airflow design – PC-A51. Previewed to the worldwide DIY community in its prototype stage, the PC-A51 is a conglomeration of user feedback and Lian Li's time-honed expertise and engineering capabilities.

Reverse Airflow Design
This community collaborated chassis sports a reverse airflow design in which cool air is pulled into the chassis from the rear filtered 120mm fan. The front 140mm fan above the front-mounted PSU pulls hardware-damaging hot air out of the case.

An additional 120mm or 140mm fan can be mounted on the floor of the chassis.

Versatile HDD/SSD Mounting System
Debuting on the PC-A51 is Lian Li's new versatile HDD/SSD mounting system. This new system allows DIY builders to mount either a 3.5” or 2.5” drive on the five individually removable hard drive bays. For more versatility, if the bays are removed, up to three 2.5” drives can be mounted directly onto the tray – freeing up space and helping to increase airflow. Behind the motherboard tray an additional 2.5” can be mounted.

Compact Size / Full Hardware Compatibility
At 44L, the PC-A51 is a compact mid-tower that makes use of all available space. CPU coolers up to 175mm (6.8”) in height and power supplies up to 160mm (6.2”) are supported. VGA cards up to 400mm (15.7”) comfortably fit inside the PC-A51.

Water Cooling Support
A tool-lessly removable top panel allows for 240/280mm radiators and AIO liquid cooling kits to be easily installed.

Convenient Connectivity
The I/O panel containing four USB 3.0 ports and HD audio connections is located on the front bezel for convenient connectivity. A stealth bay for the 5.25” drive keeps the front bezel uniform.

Price and Availability
The PC-A51 will be available in North America in four variations:

  • PC-A51A (silver) / PC-A51B (black) – USD149
  • PC-A51WX (internal black w/ window) – USD189
  • PC-A51WRX (red and black w/ window) – USD199

    The first three models will ship by late February, the PC-A51WRX will follow towards the end of April.
