Lian Li has always been the one to take the initial steps towards a new discovery or an innovation and this time it if feeling experimental once again. The PC-A51 prototype is one such example and we might remember how it took the PC enthusiast community’s intake on this one last year. It seems like we are going to see another one of their experiments now but this time around the company has made use of emerging form-factor, desk-type chassis, chassis that doubles up as your desk.
Here we are talking about the DK-01 prototype which has the exact measurements of 800 mm x 795 mm x 600 mm (WxHxD). The top drawer of this case features the business end and this is going to house the hardware. Metal u-frames have been sued for the legs and the tip part is made from clear glass or acrylic top and allows one to see below into the creation.
There is enough room for a gargantuan HPTX motherboard which also makes it compatible for EATX, XL-ATX, and standard ATX motherboards. There is plenty of room for up to 14 3.5-inch drives which will be stored inside in detachable bays. If users prefer larger motherboards and add on cards which are longer, they can remove half of these detachable bays to make enough room. PSUs as long as 280 mm, and CPU coolers as tall as 180 mm are supported by the case and up to seven 120 mm fans can be stored at various places to deploy the radiators. More photos below…
