Bit Tech writes Lian Li is preparing to launch the X1000 case, this is an improved and cheaper version of the X2000 design. This case is very tall and has plenty of room for lots of hardware.
Lian Li has listened to criticism of the original design and has moved the optical drives to face the front. There's support for six hard drives, space for a pair of 2.5” SSD drives, support for long PSUs (although with high efficiency solutions now it shouldn’t be needed in this day and age), as well as the option to pack out the motherboard with graphics cards thanks to the two large 140mm fans right behind them. Despite having no side fan, the graphics cooling should be very similar due to this chassis design, but the advantage of no side fan means its elegant clean looks aren’t spoiled with an ugly grill.
