Lian Li chassis for Xbox 360 with water cooling option
Lian Li Industrial Co, one of the largest manufacturers of aluminum PC case in Taiwan launched today the PC-XB01 chassis for the Xbox 360. The Lian Li chassis alleviates heating issues from hot components and reduces noise from vibrating optical drives in the original case design. All the Xbox 360 ports are hidden behind stylish dust covers and the ODD bay also has a spring loaded dust cover for aesthetic appeal and convenience. The unit can be placed horizontally, or vertically, depending on your needs, and the water cooling pipe holes are an option to use should you be inclined to do so. The case is designed to fit the entire Xbox 360 internals similar to the original, with the power transformer attaching from the outside.
The Lian Li PC-XB01measures 160 x 250 x 415mm. The 120mm (1500RPM) rear fan draws off the heat from inside the case effectively and silently, while the ODD region is encased in stylized foam to reduce noise experienced from spinning disks in standard units. The PC-XB01 requires DIY knowledge for the transfer of components. Microsoft Inc is very strict on warranties, so it should be noted that you will not be able to return your product if you use the Lian Li PC-XB01 alternative, which is available for approximately $149.
