As far as support for components goes, we noted E-ATX boards earlier, we can also install graphics cards up to 370mm, PSUs at 298mm, and CPU Coolers of 170mm without issue. Radiator support is 120×120 in the back, 120×240/120×120 in the top and 120×360, 120×240 or 120×120 at the front. There is also ample room for pump and reservoir in the main chamber.

Lian Li PC-08 Review (PC-O8) – User Experience and Conclusion

Often cases with non-standard designs can make installation awkward or confusing but installing a system in the PC-O8 is a very straightforward process. Drop in the motherboard and GPU/Main components, add the PSU and drives round the back, pass the wiring through the rubber covers and then get that connected along with our cooling solution of choice. We had no issues with installing liquid coolers from corsair along with the liquid cooled AMD Fury X. We put the radiator for that at the back location, moved two of the installed fans to the top location and added the CPU radiator in place of the front fan. As the images above show, there is also more than enough room for a DIY watercooling setup too.

LED installation was easy and we love that Lian Li bundle LED strips and a controller which lets us alter the colour to our needs. With many manufacturers this would be an extra cost/purchase. The only minor design niggle we had was that the HDD cage blocks the CPU backplate so changing coolers means removing the drives…though that is far simpler than removing the whole motherboard/cards etc. Other little design aspects such as the pull off top/side covers, anti-vibration rings and support for multiple USB 3.0 ports are all good design choices.

As far as overall build quality goes, flawless. The glass panels in our sample did need a bit of a clean when we unboxed them but that’s an incredibly minor issue. Every part of the finish on the case was perfect and the glass installed easily. We also love that it was protected in a separate box during shipping, ensuring it arrived in perfect condition.

Performance was also very good. The inclusion of six fans as standard is excellent and there is plenty of flexibility for cooling changes as well as the presence of removable dust filters to keep our build easy to maintain. All of the above means that the PC-O8 wins our Gold Award.

    Looks like they ‘borrowed’ their idea pretty heavily from the Corsair Air 540

    Nice case. Similar layout to my Case Labs M8 but a bit snazzier with the glass front and side.
