Lian Li PC-8FIB Aluminum Midi Tower Case Review

Rating: 9.5.

We have reviewed many cases recently on KitGuru but today we have something special up for review, the new Lian Li PC-8FIB aluminium chassis.

Lian Li have a well deserved reputation for creating beautifully understated designs which appeal to the most discerning of enthusiast user.

The PC 8FIB is a new ‘tool less' design and features various customisation capabilities to ensure it attracts an audience who want something a little more high end than the norm.

They are shipping three versions – PC-8FIR (spider edition in red), PC-8FIA (silver) and the one we are looking at today in black, the PC-8FIB.

As with many Lian Li products, the PC-8FI is created around a purely minimalist style. The front is hair line brushed and anodised for the ultimate appearance. The new design follows the common modern day approach of having the power supply mounted at the bottom, it also fully supports the largest of processor coolers.

  1. My lord, I creamed my pants there, what a case !

  2. That is just simply stunning, no other word for it.

  3. FINALLY ! a LIAN LI review on KitGuru, this has made my week as I was looking at this case on overclockers last week, and for the price I need an indepth analysis. off to read this again before parting with my money.

  4. Well words fail me. I saw the score and thought, has Zardon lost it. 9.5 out of 10? but by the end of it, 10 seems a fair score. The only thing I would say is the room for graphics cards. it wont handle a 5970 without moving the HD rack. thats the only real flaw I can find, and its not a big one as I would say 10 people have one 🙂

  5. Excellent review, pictures are fabulous also, really helps to sell the case. the appearance is exactly what I want.

    Sadly I wont be spending that amount of cash on a case, but its well worth it. I just need a better job first.

  6. That is pretty much the perfect chassis. Nothing omitted that I would want.

  7. Luxiourous high end design and beautifully implemented.

    Great review Zardon, this is a dream case for me.

  8. Great to drool over, but sadly way out of my price bracket when im buying a case, £120 is my self enforced limit. I have never owned an aluminum case mind you so maybe its worth it ?

  9. wicked review that. put me in mind to blow more money when im paid. I hate this site sometimes.

  10. Well aint this pretty. the price surely isnt tho.

  11. God damn it, I want this case and have done for weeks when i saw it listed. This review has made the craving worse. its just so much cash 🙁 shall think over a pint 🙂

  12. I love Lian Li products, this is beautiful. no other words for it 🙂

  13. Just took delivery on one of these… Cost just over £140 delivered (to the UK) from Germany. For some reason caseking appear to be able to sell these at just €149, about £100 less than anywhere in the UK, just in case anyone was thinking of getting one.

  14. Did I miss something or is there no power and disk drive activity lights?
