Lian Li Announces PC-X2000FN Tall and Slim EATX Chassis
Lian Li has announced their tall and slim PC-X2000FN chassis with support for EATX motherboards. It has a sleek and elegant external appearance thanks to its one-piece front panel with no visible vents on holes.
Standing 693mm (27.3") tall and 240mm (9.4") wide, the PC-X2000FN lets DIY builders install the hardware they desire in a neat, organized and compartmentalized fashion. The top section holds 5.25", 3.5" and 2.5" drives. The middle section is for motherboards up to the EATX form factor, and has plenty of room for cable management thanks to the rubber grommets and generous space behind the motherboard tray. The bottom compartment holds the power supply as well as an additional 3.5" HDD cage.
The PC-X2000FN holds up to seven hotswappable 3.5" hard drives - four 3.5" HDDs in the top compartment and three 3.5" HDDs in the bottom one. A 2.5" hard drive cage allows users to install up to three SSDs in the top compartment. For even more storage capabilities, two additional 3.5" HDD or a 3.5" and a 2.5" can be installed in the middle compartment. The asking price is around $500 and more pictures along with full specifications can be viewed at the link below.
The middle section is the roomiest by far. Thanks to the other hardware being compartmentalized in the sections above and below, DIY builders do not need to worry about space limitations for expansion cards and CPU coolers. CPU coolers up to 180mm (7.0") in height and expansion cards up to 340mm (13.3") in length fit comfortably. Also, the ten expansion slots with tool-less latches to secure cards into place, give this tall, slim chassis plenty of room for future expandability.
