LIAN LI PC-90 Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs smallest hptx case 09/12/2011

This review is from: LIAN LI PC-90 Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: It is the smallest HPTX case. The case design really makes use of volume in the most efficient way. The case weight is very light for its size. The airflow is perfect as soon as all wires are put above HD holders. The build: SR-2 MB with two Megahalems for couple E5649 at 4Ghz + 24GB RAM Cinibench 11.5 - ~20 scores. CPU temp under 61C (room 25) is a perfect result for such compact render box. The dual X5690 has score ~18 at x2.5 price.

Cons: Such option as an additional 140mm fan on the top of case is not even mentioned in specs provided by newegg, this additional 140mm fan may conflict with PSU; I could fit (barely) 1000W RSA00-AMBAJ3-US with the third/top 140mm fan. (no issue without extra 140mm fan). Even case is smallest for HPTX it is still bigger then I used to.

Other Thoughts: Newcoming Sandy Bridge 10core 2.4GHz Xeon has around the same rendering performance as 4Ghz E5649 so, SR-2 may remain in business for couple years until Intel come up with some more substantial improvements then SB (or AMD).

EVGA Classified SR-2 - DUAL LGA 1366 Intel 5520 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HPTX Motherboard (270-WS-W555-A2)
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: With this board the couple E5649 at ~4GHz outperforms 2x X5690 for 2.5 time less $. It is very simple to overclock for non-overclocker but yet technically savvy.

Cons: It is big and needs HPTX case, just announced PC-90 case makes possible to have it in normal big ATX case.

Other Thoughts: read my review on PC-90
