Lian Li engineers have decided to diversify the range of branded chassis with “quiet” PC-B12. This Mid-Tower model is designed in such a way as to minimize the noise coming from the system unit. To do this, the anterior wall of the chassis is made solid and in construction added the cover for the rear fan, included damping pad for hard drives and fans, as well as 'soft' feet, on which the hull stands.
Lian Li PC-B12 is currently available only in black version. Its dimensions are 498 (L) x 210 (W) x 472 (H) mm, weight — 6.4 kg. Inside can be placed the motherboard form factor ATX or microATX, a maximum of 8 cards PCI-E expansion up to 360 mm, the CPU cooler up to 160 mm, power supply, three hard disk format 3.5 «and one 2.5». The pair of «external» 5.25-inch bays should as well be considered.
New model doesn’t have vent on the front panel; it is migrated to the lower bound of the chassis and serves two 140 mm fan located opposite basket for storage. Blow-out runs by 120 mm fan on the back panel, for it Lian Li has built a small duct with sound absorber, directing the hot air (sound waves) down. Sound absorber also has a front and side faces of the chasis. There are three fans in the package: two 140-mm fans located in the frontal part of the chassis (intake of the air is performed through the bottom), a 120-mm — on the back. Panel input-output ports include two USB 3.0, headphone and microphone.
The recommended price for model is $ 169, excluding VAT.
