Lian Li PC-TU100 Mini-ITX Tower comes with a carrying handle
Okay, so this is not going to be anybody's cup of tea. Lian Li released the PC-TU100 which is a mini tower for Mini-ITX cases. The aluminium case has a briefcase-like design, with a large carrying handle, it has room for three 2.5" storage devices, a slim optical disc drive, and VGA cards with a length of up to 190mm. It measures 158mm x 275mm x 242mm (W x H x D) and weighs 2.2kg. It's available in black and silver for $109.99. Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd is pleased to announce their newest edition to the briefcase chassis “TU” series – PC-TU100 Mini-ITX Chassis.
More compact than the PC-TU200, the fully aluminum PC-TU100 is the ideal choice for the ultimate LAN rig with its top-mounted handle and its support for the latest powerful low profile graphics card. The stylish retro “007-esque” design of the chassis is sure to garner much attention.
Portable Gaming Hardware
With dimensions of (WxHxD) 158 x 275 x 242mm (6.2” x 10.8” x 9.5”) and a weight of 1.77kg (3.9lb), the PC-TU100 holds the hardware necessary for a portable gaming system while being primed and ready for transport. Two 2.5” hard drives or SSDs can be mounted on the bottom drive rack. An additional 2.5” drive can be placed in the slim optical drive bay, if no optical drive is installed.
Graphics cards up to 190mm can be installed in the chassis – enough room for some of the latest small form factor graphics cards. The PC-TU100 supports SFX power supplies up to 170mm.
Lian Li has engineered the case for maximum airflow. A tool-lessly mounted 120mm intake fan with a removable air filter at the front of the chassis blows air across the integral components. With no drive cage blocking the fan, the air flows unrestricted through the case. Well-placed vents on the side and the rear of the case ensures the hot air escapes.
Simple Release Side Panels
Similar to the PC-TU200, the side panels of the PC-TU100 are unlatched with just a push of the release lever on the back panel. Putting the panel back on is a simple push to lock the anchoring pins back into their sockets.
The front panel contains the dual LED illuminated power button that glows blue when on and purple when loading. The I/O panel at the bottom of the front panel contains two USB 3.0 ports and HD audio connections.
