  1. Earlier today I swung by Lian Li's booth at Computex 2014, and they had a number of cool PC cases on show, including a number of crazy PC chassis of varying sizes integrated into tables. The showcase product was a...

    The infamous BBQ in action, already feel the smell of something burning... :)

    I pointed at earlier at the design flaw that doesn't allow any room for mouse + keyboard cables, and here we are, wireless both, how practical of them.

    So many USB-s on the front panel, and not one Thunderbolt or SATA Express or FireWire.
     
  3. If you are so smart, make something better and get rich instead of complaining.

    If that's the case then customers, potential or actual, should never complain.

    I'm stacking up all the complains, to sell them as a collection, buy them and make me rich ;)
    We are all good at something...

    Here's another one for you...

    In all my years I had two desktops that caught fire, yet none came with an extinguisher. I think this one definitely should! ;)

    I think if you have had 2 systems catch on fire, you should stop building your own systems.

    You know I really think Lian Li onto something here, all you need to do is chuck in a mobo with an overclocked & over volted i7 3970X, bolt on 2 x R9 290X's (because these parts are famous for running so hot), replace the glass top with a BBQ grille, find somewhere else to place your screen/s, start up the machine, load your favourite game, chuck on the meat (no need to even make a fire) and you can play to your hearts content without having to pause your game to see how the steaks are coming along. The more inventive among us can even tack on a 12v motor and transform the case into a spit BBQ with very little effort.(y) As I pointed out earlier, Lian Li were even so thoughtful as to include pegs from which to hang your utensils. Who knows, in the MK2 version they may even include a spice rack.:p

    The first one was AMD processor overheating, and the second one was nVidia card catching fire out of the blue. We all know AMD wasn't very good handling thermal issues back in the days, but perhaps we should tell nVidia they should move to a new business also... or you can tell them yourself ;)

    I hope the guys at Hardware Canucks get one of these to review.

    I don't know man. You're the only one I have heard of with these fire stories. Maybe buy retail parts from now on.

    Really, I was hoping hahahanoobs would provide us with a review.
     
  13. Is it only my imagination but most of Lian Li's design resembles with the case design from Japanese manufacturer, right?

    That happened much later :)
     
  18. Do you have a model number for the last case pictured, the one that supports 2 systems?
