What to do with this vintage Lian Li case?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
First off, I cannot even tell what model it is. I cannot find any marking on the case at all other than the Lian Li logo on the bottom front. The body seems sort of like this, and the front bezel looks almost, but not quite like this. Perhaps it was a hybrid/full custom right from Lian-Li or the front was replaced with a different yet compatible model. Maybe it is rare. I don't know. I have been able to find other cases that share some of the same features, but none exactly like this one. It is virtually spotless, with only a few small scratches on one of the side panels, and the little door at the bottom of the front is missing. The rest looks like it just came from the factory. it has a hot-swap SCSI drive and 3 other SCSI drives, I am assuming they are only about 4-6GB each by the age of this thing. I haven't even tried to turn it on yet, although it really doesn't matter since I don't need a 10 or 12 year old server. I am only interested in the case.

I have a chance to give the guy a fully working Dell Dimension 4700 that has been lying around the shop and a little bit of free tech support in exchange for this machine, but I don't know what to do with it. The guy just wants a simple machine for checking his email and Facebook so the dell would be fine for him.

Question: If this just a PC-6xx body with optional Lian-Li parts, is there any where to get new replacement parts? And will any Lian-Li drive bay parts and covers work with this?

My sig rig case is very similar to that on the interior. Velocity Micro still uses a variant of your case as their 'signature aluminum case.'



The interior is identical, but the face and rear panel are somewhat different.

And to answer your question: Donate it in auction in honor of Syrillian. See signature for details.
