After grabbing lunch I headed over to the Lian Li booth where I met up with JP. Lian Li has always been known for it's cases and it's showing at CES 2012 was no exception. With new cases on the way read on to see what they had to offer.

With over thirty cases on display this year I knew that I was going to need all of the two hours that the meeting was scheduled for. I am going to hit on a couple of them because if I did all of them this would be fifty pages long.
The one case that really caught my attention was the PC-90. You can tell that hours of thought was put into this case. Not only is is the size of a standard mid tower, it has that Lian Li look, meaning, soft lines, rounded corners and very understated. The item that really stands out on this case is that it will support HPTX motherboards. It's almost mind boggling on how the heck that actually made everything fit. From the slick mounting for the HDD's to the easy to use cable management system this can hold one sick machine.
The other case that grabbed my attention was the PC-Q05. This a stupidly small PC. Your not going to be playing games on this thing as it's based on the new Intel Mini-ITX standard. It's almost funny how small this thing really is. The motherboard looks like it's out of a notebook with it using the standard SO DIMM memory type. It's extremely small and perfect for a HTPC.
