At Cebit 2010, OverClocking-TV had a meeting with Lian Li – This year Lian Li had main focus on the “spider” officially named T1, however, something different caught our eyes…. In the corner of a booth, we found something less flashy, more solid, and a ATX size instead of micro ATX….
For obvious reasons; This indeed caught our attention!
We had the chance to get a prototype of the Lian Li PC-T60, as this is a prototype, some features are missing.
So what does it offer?
- Aluminium finish, optional if plain aluminium colour, black or red.
- Solid and stable hold of the elevated tray
- Easy to move, even with setup mounted
- Lian Li’s always very attracting design
- Plenty of 3.5” bays

Here are the official specs for your references :
Here are the picture we took with our sample
The stability of the table is amazing, the design looks a tad fragile however, you are in for a surprise! Once you add weight, it becomes more and more stable – and lets face it, our LN2 pots doesn’t weight less then 2kg anyway – a 3½ kg Otterauge pot was used for testing
We receive this prototype becasue we were sure that it can be improved, and here is what I came up with for changes:
- 2.5”, we want SSD for benching (Who wants to wait when system crashes 75% of the time?)
- Power/reset buttons moved to side of the tower
- Two long lists for mounting fans… This on front side, and on upper right corner (for CPU/PWM) (this has been added on the retail version)
- Optional arc feature upgrade – pressure
Some might say; “The Lian Li logo bar is in the way for pouring LN2!” And guys; Depending on size of your pot, you might be right, but thing is – its optional! You can remove it and table will still work ;)
My personal note : Use it for HTPC for a while, I kind of like it.
