In the weeks leading up to Computex we talked about Lian Li’s new desk cases and now they are here. At Computex this week Lian Li is showing the DK-01X, DK-02X and DK-Q1X cases. These cases are definitely unique, but will for sure put a dent in your wallet!
Starting with the largest desk case the DK-02X, which can actually fit two systems inside. There is room for a mini-ITX system and a larger system that can fit up to an E-ATX motherboard. For storage you can fit up to 17 hard drives inside and a single slim ODD drive. On the larger system side you have 9 expansion slots, whereas on the smaller side you only have two. The top of the case is made of tempered glass so you can get a good look at your hardware inside.
Next we have the DK-01X, which supports a single system. Just like its larger brother the DK-01X can support motherboards up to E-ATX, but it actually have 10 expansion slots. You have room for 10 hard drives and a single 5.25-inch ODD drive. There is support for up to 7 fans to keep your system nice and cool. Both cases have a drawer design so you can slide them out to install or upgrade your hardware.
Last but not least is the DK-Q1X, which is a little different from the other two cases as it is smaller. It is about as tall as a coffee table and is designed for a high-end HTPC build or something similar. It would definitely look nice under say a wall-mounted TV. It also supports E-ATX motherboards and has 8 expansions slots. You have room for 5 hard drives, plus two 2.5-inch drives on the motherboard tray.
The DK-01X and DK-02X will be available in the US at the end of July for the suggested retail prices of $989 and $1189 respectively. No word yet on the DK-Q1X.
