Lian Li Caving To The RGB Craze, New Alpha 550 Has 3 RGB Fans

Lian Li, who we know as a brand that does not make their cases extra flashy or anything like that seems to have caved to the recent RGB craze with their latest case. This case is the Alpha 550, which is outfitted with three of their Bora 120 RGB LED fans.

This case is not too shabby either with its mid-tower shape, but actually has room inside for E-ATX motherboards as well as offering vertical GPU installation support. On top of that you have the typical aluminum design we all know from Lian Li, plus tempered glass panels on both sides as well as the front of the case.

The three Bora 120 RGB LED fans are pre-installed at the front of the case and connected to a control unit which synchronizes illumination and allows users to change the effects. As far as fan and radiator support you can fit 3x 120/140 mm fans up front, 3x 120/140 mm fans up top, and 1x 120 mm fan on the back of the unit. A 360 mm radiator can be fitted at the front of the chassis, and a 420 mm on the top.

Up front there are two USB 3.0 ports, one USB 3.1 Type-C port, and HD audio connections. You can install graphics cards up to 400 mm, power supplies up to 250 mm, and CPU coolers up to 170 mm in height. The Alpha 500 will be available November 10th for $239.
