Lian LI and DAN Cases are teaming up for a new range of compact PC cases – the A4-H2O. This 11-liter SFF case packs a punch, with a large amount of ventilation for cooling, and room squeeze in some high-end components, including up to 3-slot graphics cards.
The A4-H2O offers an understated design, finished in black or silver with a matte black interior. The side panel includes a large mesh area, enabling better ventilation and airflow – you will also find additional ventilation on the bottom panel. Taking off all the panels is easy thanks to a pushpin design, so you can strip the case down to its frame for an easier building experience.
Despite its compact size, users don't have to compromise much on hardware. The A4-H2O is one of the smallest cases available that can accommodate full-size triple-slot graphics cards. For ease of installation, the front panel is simply taken off, giving a wide opening to slide the graphics card in and mount it to a vertical GPU mount with 322mm clearance.
Removing the top panel of the case gives you access to a removable bracket, which you can use to mount radiators up to 240mm in length and 55mm in thickness with fans, so you can easily install an AIO liquid cooler. If you opt for air cooling, you will need to find one that is up to 55mm in height.
As you would expect from a case of this size, only Mini-ITX motherboards are supported, but users can opt for up to an SFX-L power supply to power more demanding hardware. For storage, there is room for a 2.5″ SSD in the bottom of the case.
The A4-H2O is available in two colours, either an anodized black or silver exterior, both feature a matte black interior and include either a PCIe 3.0 or PCIe 4.0 riser cable. The Lian Li DAN Cases A4-H2O is available from Overclockers UK, starting at £99.95 for the PCIe 3.0 version and £134.99 for the PCIe 4.0 version.
