Lian Li shows off the DK01, a prototype of a new type of case that doubles up as your desk. The chassis is lifted by two metal u-shaped legs, the top is made from clear glass or acrylic glass and the motherboard plate slides out like a drawer. The DK01 measures 800mm x 795mm x 60mm (W x H x D), it has room for motherboards as large at HPTX and there's space for graphics cards of up to 410mm long, CPU coolers with max height of 180mm, up to seven 120mm fans, and two 240/360mm radiators.
The DK01 features room for a gargantuan HPTX motherboard, which means it can also hold EATX, XL-ATX, and standard ATX motherboards. The case has room for up to fourteen (14) 3.5-inch drives, which are arranged in detachable bays. Removing half the bays creates room for large motherboards, and long (up to 410 mm) add-on cards. With the caddies in place, that room shrinks to a still respectable 280 mm. The case supports PSUs as long as 280 mm, and CPU coolers as tall as 180 mm. At various locations, there is room for up to seven 120 mm fans, which you can use to deploy a 240 x 120 mm and 360 x 120 mm radiators.
You can view several more pictures of this concept at TPU.
