LIAN LI PC-TU200B Black Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case

5 out of 5 eggs Interesting build 12/27/2013

This review is from: LIAN LI PC-TU200B Black Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case

Pros: This is an excellent little case that fit the goal of building a college and return study and gaming system for my son. The workmanship is amazing, smooth black anodized surfaces with the fit of a sports car. The ability to remove the internal structures for equipment installs and customize the case is excellent. With some patience and planning you can stuff a bunch in this and still have great airflow.

Cons: Due to it's size and power supply placement in relation to CPU ...using a larger air cooler or water cooling for the CPU is very tight or not possible. I settled for factory cooler on AMD A10. Temp is holding below 60 under load. But they run a little hot anyway.

Other Thoughts: I have been looking for this kind of case for a long time so my son can drag it back and forth from college instead of a large format case. He has had it up and running all week during Christmas break and loves it. Loaded with Gigabyte F2A88VN-WIFI,Full size GPU Gigabyte 660GTX, 16 gigs of 1866 Ballistic, 600 watt Corsair, AMD A10-6800K running at 4.1, a Samsung Pro 256 SSD, WD 1T black addition and a Asus BD/CD/DVD burner. ALL fits with room for 3 more drives.

Pros: Works well, easy swap in NEW Samsung Q430 laptop. Original Atheros AR9285 would not hit above 64 mbps on N Apple Airport No matter what. I like the laptop so New Egg to the rescue 3 days later and pow. Running 144 mbps rock solid. I can live with that.

Cons: none really, check Intel for latest driver if Win 7 doesn't find it for you. This card is not a half size, postage stamp size but fits well.

Other Thoughts: Install is not for the faint of heart to computer mfg warranties beware. The installation is simple once you open the case. BE CAREFUL.
Doing some reading, seems the computer mfgs have nothing to do with Atheros 9285 not hitting speed the same in all types regardless of make. Another blog.

Pros: simple easy to install. The XP feature works Great... but you need to download the virtual and XP virtual from MS for free (only works with the PRO VERSION) to have it, not on th DVD. Once installed simple transition from 7 to XP for older software. Very seemless BACK AND FORTH WITH A CLICK. New Egg had it here in 2 days.

Cons: Had an initial install fopaa with it. Went thru whole process and on final last "starting Windows" screen went black with mouse operating on black screen... Did some research and learned some would you believe graphics cards with VGA and Digital will do that. Disconnected the digital and boom there it all was waiting for the authentication code. Had an older Raedian1600 in a pretty hot new machine of course and went to a new but not expensive Nvidia, Pop everything is happy and HD projector works great. Go figure.

Other Thoughts: XP is still a sound OS, this is a Spectacular next step. Been doing this stuff since 5 1/4 inch floppies and no hard drives. Nice to see the evolution.
wish Newegg had spell check.
