This all-aluminum tower is more sensible than the last Lian Li case we tested We don’t get Lian Li’s spider obsession, but the rest of the PC-8FI is quite handsome. Lian Li’s chassis are renowned for their all-aluminum construction...

When presented with a chassis like Lian Li's PC-8FI, it is very hard not to heap praise on it like a smitten middle school girl. There is, nevertheless, a hell of a lot to recommend this case. It looks good, has a fabulous feature set with many...

While this case is a solid case the few shortcomings are unfortunately major ones. Cheap plastic parts inside of a supposed "all-aluminum" case puzzled us, and the fact that one of the PCI slots was missing a latch was also disappointing. If you're...

One thing that many of us love about Lian Li is that no matter the price point of the different series of their cases one thing is for sure, you will get the best quality build possible. We have had $130 Lian Li cases like the 8FI we are looking at...

The Lian Li PC-8FI is nice mid-tower aluminum case, featuring eight expansion slots, feature usually found only on more expensive cases. It comes with a terrific price tag for an all-aluminum case, deserving our Golden Award.Strong PointsTop-notch...

The Lian Li PC-8FIR offers us the build quality that Lian Li is deservingly known for and with its “All Red” color scheme with the “Spider” designed side window and exhaust fan grill you will have a unique case which will most...

Sending your case off to be professionally painted and adding a unique side window design can cost upwards of £100 so at first glance, £250 isn't as horrendous as it sounds. However, this isn't really a reason for case manufacturers to...

International Review By Rbmods.se on

Det här chassit är ett solid chassi men de få nackdelar den har är tyvärr stora. Billiga plastdetaljer inne i en påstådd "hel-aluminium"-chassi förbryllade oss, och det faktum att en av PCI-kortplatserna saknade en spärr var också en besvikelse. Om...

Elegantes Design, hohe Qualität und nützliche Features, in all diesen Punkten soll der neue Lian Li PC8FI punkten. Wer sich in Vergangenheit des Öfteren mit Produkten dieses Herstellers beschäftigt hat, dem wird sicher aufgefallen...

Inutile de vous présenter Lian Li une nouvelle fois puisque nous avons déjà testé un boitier Lancool (filiale de la firme) et un autre boitier de la marque. Le boitier de ce jour le PC-8FI est déjà sorti dans le commerce,...

O Lian Li PC-8FI é uma excelente gabinete torre média feito em alumínio equipado com oito slots de expansão, recurso normalmente encontrado apenas em gabinetes mais caros. Ele vem com um excelente preço para um gabinete todo em...

International Review By Bouweenpc on 80

Lian Li heeft met de PC-8FIB een mix gemaakt tussen een bijzondere behuizing en een degelijke behuizing zonder show. Het is geen kerstboom maar het is ook net geen case waar je aandacht aan zou besteden als je er langs zou lopen. Toch heeft de PC-8FIB...

International Review By zeden.net on 80

Avec le PC-8FI, Lian Li propose un boitier qui se place entre le boitier Gamer et le boitier traditionnel. Son design est classique pour la version testée et malheureusement sans doute trop exubérant pour la spider (rouge). Si la finition est...

s, das wir auch schon beim PC-A70F gefällt haben. Die werkzeuglose Montage, die Lian Li seit dieser Zeit anbietet funktioniert problemlos, es konnte das komplette System montiert werden ohne auch nur einmal einen Schraubendreher oder ähnliches...
