With its performance and features, the LIAN LI PC-A79 Computer Case is a great choice for your gaming powerhouse. This ATX full tower is built for DIY professionals and gamers, with its ample interior accommodating an HPTX/E-ATX motherboard and graphics up to 350mm. The motherboard tray can slide out, allowing you to install or upgrade components in an open space. Six pre-installed 120mm fans produce tremendous airflow to cool the entire system. An innovative safety design ensures the side fans are powered off when the side panel is open. Add in high-quality aluminum construction, four USB 3.0 ports on top, and a set of wheels for easy moving, and you'll see why the LIAN LI PC-A79 triumphs over the competition.

  • newegg Six Pre-installed Fans There are three front 120mm fans, one rear 120mm fan, and two side 120mm fans to provide the maximum airflow.
  • newegg Slide-Out Motherboard Tray with Cable Routing Holes The motherboard tray can be easily slid out of the chassis, so you don’t have to work in a narrow space inside the case. The rubber grommets allow you to channel and route the cables for a neat inner look and better air flow.
  • newegg Fan Safety Design The side panel uses a special connector that automatically shuts the side panel fans off when the side panel is removed.
  • newegg Hard Drive Space Three detachable HDD racks make your drive installation or removal a breeze. Each HDD rack can support three 3.5-inch drives and two 2.5-inch drives. Each rack is equipped a 120mm fan (front fan) to intake fresh air to cool the HDDs.
  • newegg Water Cooling Support With retention holes on the rear and reserved space for a radiator, the PC-A79 is designed to support the majority of commercially available integrated water coolers.
  • newegg USB 3.0 I/O Panel Four USB 3.0 ports, one eSATA port, and two audio ports are located on the top – behind a easy-slide cover – allowing for handy connection to peripherals.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: Lots of interior room
Nice cable management features
Drive cages include rubber isolators and a retaining lock for easy install and removal
Bottom grill/dust filter for mounting PSU fan-down

Cons: Top I/O panel ports are fit very poorly, lots of movement and play in the USB 3.0 and eSATA ports
Unable to get RPM reading from side fans
Reset button is too small and too recessed to be useful
Top cover does not fit after installing radiator, not enough clearance between bracket and the clip-on grill.

Other Thoughts: I've owned a number of Lian-Li cases and always found them to be of the highest quality...until now. The top I/O panel is awful and I don't expect the USB and eSATA ports to work for the life of this build. They're just that bad...worse fit/finish/quality than I've found on the cheapest no-name steel cases. Very disappointed with this case, and will not be considering Lian-Li for my next build, especially while other case manufacturers have really stepped up their offerings for the enthusiast market.

3 out of 5 eggsFront Bezel Needs Enlarging

Pros: Cable Management
Plenty of Fans

Cons: After installing two Pioneer Blu-Ray/DVD Drives in the first two bays, I had a difficult time putting the front bezel back on. After some pushing and adjusting, the bezel went on but it is tight which concerns me. I am afraid this will limit the longevity of the mounting hardware.

Other Thoughts: Hey Lian Li,
What gives with the front bezel? This is my third Lian Li Case and I am somewhat disappointed with this detail. If you would shave a little more than 1 1/2 mm from the inside top of the bezel, that would fix the problem.

Any thoughts?

4 out of 5 eggsLian LI PC- A79

Pros: Spacious interior with lots of bays.
Wheels on the back make it easy to move around.
Covered USB, headphone jack etc.keep dust out.

Cons: cables need to be a little longer

Other Thoughts: I like the power switch on top of case for easy access. Comes with several fans as well so price isn't bad, all things considered.

5 out of 5 eggsHUGE Tower Case

Pros: - Nice clean look on the outside
- Lots of room on the inside
- Plenty of fans for airflow and definately plenty of room for any size water cooler.
- Nice auto-disconnect or 2 fans on the side panel.

Cons: - Price is high at $320.

Other Thoughts: - Would be nice to have it painted black on the inside.
- Would be nice to have a window on the side panel. Nothing that couldn't get modded later.
- Wish it had more internal 3.5" or 2.5" drive trays or an optional drive stack on the bottom where the 2 x 2.5" drive trays are located.
- I had to mod the top 2 5.25" drive tray "tabs" so I could install an Icy Dock 5x3.5" drive tray. I knew this going in before I bought it. They didn't do this for the bottom so why do it for the top? No biggie. 5 mins is all it took.

I know these things would add to the already high price.

2 out of 5 eggsDon't trust LianLI to backup their products

Pros: Solid enough

Cons: Fan cable absurdly short and not able to reach motherboard plug, thus useless without a extension

Other Thoughts: LianLI AKA lancool's warranty can not be trusted. You mail them and they will never get back to you, ever. And of course I'm not going to male some international call on my own dime when they might not even speak english.
