Lian Li PC 100 “The Hammer”

titleWe have had a few different Lian Li chassis come through the LanOC Offices and there hasn’t been a time that we haven’t been impressed with the new and interesting features Lian Li always seems to slip in. When they wanted to ship over their new case “The Hammer” PC 100, we signed up right away. We had seen the case previewed from a few shows prior and this time around Lian Li took a new perspective with its design, I was very interested to see how their changes worked out. Let’s jump in and see what it’s all about!

Saw this at their booth at CES. Was a strange design for case but that's Lian Li for ya. Lets do something totally different.

they do reach as long as you turn the pump/water block to have the tubes on the right side. You would need a 140mm Radiator or a 140mm to 120mm adapter. Also because it is so tight it will depend on the motherboard you use, if the motherboard has the CPU socket any closer to the rear IO panel than on the board we tested with, it wouldn't work.

I'm curious, do the water cooling tubes reach back to the 140mm fans or are they too short?

An interesting case design from Lian Li. Its not without a few problems, but they manage to rethink cases, fitting a full XL-ATX motherboard into a mid tower case!
