A huge internal space fits E-ATX motherboards, and graphics cards, which can up to 390mm long, and there is room for 10 hard drives. There are 2 x 12cm and 2 x 14cm cooling fans to cool the system down, and a lot of internal space for a liquid cooling system. It is ideal for gamers and pro users alike!
The PC-A71F has equipped two 140mm cooling fans in the fornt of the chassis, there are two fans intake the cool air into the case, The Fan not only cool the HDD down, it also help the motherboard's North & South bridge chipset, and the graphics card.
The new PC-A71F is a full-tower case, which is ideal for the latest graphics cards in combination with the best thermal dynamics. All the internal installation can be done without tools, and is easily adjustable to optimize your hardware setup. Especially in the advent of adding in new graphics cards, equipped with 7 PCI slots, can hold three or more graphics cards, supporting Crossfire™ and SLI™.
The PC-A71F has a door panel design; this keeps the case working without noise, with a simple design and minimalist, stylish look.
Lian Li uses the best “Made in Taiwan” high quality aluminum panel for all Lian Li chassis. The solid main chassis was folded with 2mm thick aluminum sheeting to make a more sturdy structure which has less vibration. The front panels using a spring supported steel ball as door latch, this will keep the door shut in the right position. There also are rubber strips on the front door panel.
The new 5.25” bay tool-less mounting incorporates a mounting bar equipped with rubber padding. After closing the mounting bar, the rubber pad pushes and holds the 5.25” devices in position to both secure and absorb vibrations from the device.
Lian Li designers spent months to upgrade Lian Li’s HDD cage; the new HDD cage uses special Thumb Screws with rubber suspension. No tools are required, simply secure the anti-vibration rubber ring to the HDD, and slide the HDD into the cage.
The aluminum PCI tool-less mounting module is equipped with a rubber pad which can hold the graphics card firmly while closing the gap found in the PCI bracket and PCI slot to reduce noise from escaping air and furthermore reduce vibrations.
The Power Supply has rubber pads for both insulation and support. The mounting clip is also aligned with rubber to reduce vibrations but also secure the PSU without scratching the painted surface.
There are two 140mm intake fans on PC-A71F. The fans can output a high air flow volume with lower RPM to push the cold air through the HDD rack.
There is a 120mm exhaust fan behind HDD cage to draw the hot air out, and improve the air flow inside the chassis. The openings on the bottom of the HDD cage to allow the air to cool the HDD.
The rear 120mm exhaust fan just next to the CPU can remove the hot air out fast and silently.
There are vents on the PCI slots, providing extra cooling to graphics card.
PC-A71F supports liquid cooling systems, the two holes at the rear of the case allow water tubes to pass through, and the rubber cover can protect the tubes away from cutting.
User Friendly Design
2009 has seen an all-new tool-less design from Lian Li aluminum chassis. To do this required a great many innovative patents to be filed worldwide. The ideas will make installing and maintenance much easier. For example when installing the 5.25” optical drive, just slide the drive into the 5.25” bay, and close the mounting bar to secure the optical drive, as simple as that.
The installation of the hard disk is very easy, and also requires no tools. Secure the anti-vibration rubber ring to the HDD, and slide the HDD into the cage. The patented tool-less HDD cage combines with patented anti-vibration rubber grommets to suspend the HDD’s in a noise free environment.
To install PCI add-on cards requires no tools at all. Simply open the aluminum arm of the tool-less PCI add-on card holder, insert the add-on card to the motherboard slots, and close the aluminum arm to hold the add-on card in position. The additional rubber padding on the aluminum arm assists in gripping the card bracket and securing it firmly.
To install the PSU requires no tools. Simply open the aluminum PSU holder, insert the PSU in position, you can also turn the PSU's fans up or down to suit your need, then close the aluminum PSU holder.
There is a special quadrate opening of the motherboard tray, user can easily switch the cpu's radiator without removing the motherboard.
There is a patented cable management clamp for cables to pass through, allowing the user convenient management of the cables.
To install the motherboard requires no tools, simply use the tool-less screw to screw a motherboard into case, quickly and easily.
Multi-media port connectors follow international specification standards, with one connector for easy installation. Audio supports HD Audio or AC97 Audio. The dual design is for better compatibility options. All I/O ports on the top cover, allow for easy access, there is also a dust-free cover to protect these connectors.
