Lian Li Unveils Upgraded TYR PC-X2000F HTPC/Gaming Chassis

Today, Lian Li Industrial announced the TYR PC-X2000F chassis. Its stylish side panels accept four 5.25-inch optical drives and one 3.5-inch drive with toolless sliding mounts that can be placed on either the left or right side. Unlike Lian Li's previously released TYR PC-X2000 that had space for only two 5.25-inch optical drives, the new TYR PC-X2000F splits HDD bays between the upper and lower thermal zones for more efficient cooling. Furthermore, the TYR PC-X2000F's toolless HDD mounting racks support seven SAS hot-swappable HDDs -- another increase over the X2000.

The new TYR PC-X2000F features an all-black anodized interior, an easily removable front panel which covers three 140mm silent intake fans, protected by a removable and washable nylon dust filter. The fan speed control switch is placed on the back panel of the chassis. The TYR PC-X2000F boasts four USB 3.0 ports mounted on the top of the chassis alongside one multimedia port for e-SATA and HD audio.

Lian Li's TYR PC-X2000F requires just a few quick snaps to install key components. The design features toolless motherboard installation, and eight toolless PCI card holders with rubber pads to hold graphics cards firmly in place. Additionally, PSU is now located above a vent on the bottom panel, for additional cooling, and also doesn't need tools to install. The vent is protected by a removable and washable nylon dust filter.

More features include support for Extended ATX, ATX, and Micro-ATX motherboards, water cooling support, 140mm silent exhaust fans for the motherboard heat zone, 140mm exhaust fans for the HDD bay heat zone and anti-vibration and insulated rubber strips on the mounting platforms.

The case was designed with silence in mind, so the specialized sound insulation material combined with 2mm thick aluminum alloy side panels keep the system quiet.
