    This is not up to lian-li standards :\ A prototype, and an uggly one. It's so bland. The window could be a nice touch, but at least they should've brightned the interior.
    A case like the PC-C30A would better fit in the living room.

    Not really a fan of the window, but the concept is good. Especially if it'll keep the damn thing quiet.

    looks fine to me, I like the quiet idea too instead of having a wind tunnel under me tv :D

    think it need something else to be marketable though?

    ps2 mouse/ keyboard support would be good, also some tive type remote I woud like. They would need to talk to microsoft though obviously, warrenties are nice too.

    I've always intended that as soon as my warrenty runs out i'm re-casing my 360, now i'm on my 3rd one.

    I agree that this case seems a little ugly and the door a bit pointless but on the flip side its such a perfect foundation for a good 360 cosmetic mod

    The 360 doesn't have PS2 ports, so they'd be a pointless. No idea if USB to PS2 convertors would work, and it would only be for the keyboard anyway.

    If you wanted wireless keyboard, you could always get the keyboard add on thing for the controller.

    And what warranties? The only one you'll have on the console will be voided as soon as you crack it open to start putting it into the Lian Li case.

    Any word on and HDMI compatible version, or is that way out of sight since this is a prototype?

    Also: What's he yammering about the HDD for?

    IIRC there's some fancy trickery that does an absurdly good job of stopping people doing that.

    That was my understanding as well. Do these guys actually know enough about the 360?

    Elegance is what I think it lacks. I hate to say it but it looks too much like your standard PC case with a window. Look at the standard 360 case and the shape of the controllers - last gen was boxier but this gen is smooth & curvy - like a polished river rock - not an industrial looking box.

    But at least this looks better than that last bunch of LL cases I saw.

    Is it really going to fix the heat flow problems with the power supply in there?

    realy nice ! I'm gonna buy one of these, does anybody know when lian li will start to sell it and is the rear fan a 120mm ?

    the psu isn't inside, you can see the xbox360 power cable from the back photo. and the only probleme is the wifi adapter.

    You must be kidding. I'm going to put a case that big next to the 23" flat panel display in my bedrom where I have my xbox and PS2?

    Hey I've got an idea, let's just package it in a mini-fridge and that way we can cool some beverages along with our xbox.

    Seriously, I thought this article would be about something in a form factor close to that of the xbox with quieter fans and better airflow.

    this is a prototype... i'm not surprised that it's not super-polished-looking yet.. Neat idea. Lian-Li++

    What the F is up with Lian-Li?!?! At first glance I though it was made by some one-limbed modder or something else that would make it special. It looks terrible.

    I thought it Might be good to make a replacement-case that was 42 cm wide (normal hifi-width) so it could be stacked with AV-amp, but this one... Damn.

    Nice concept, few tweeks required.
    A: Move the DVD drive
    B: Loose the Door
    C: Make it large enough for W/C (This would do nicely)

    Job Done:clap:

    They can't tell if you change the case? And they'll only band you from live if you have a large volume of complaints made against you and/or you have an illegal mod-chip in your unit.

    Can't see why (or even know that you've changed cases for that matter).

    I like it, but I think the DVD drive should be horizontal and lose the door.
