yea i have to agree with they aren't anything super special unless you get one of their weirdly designed ones like the shell or the train, haha

it's just an aluminum case

Well actually it would be a good move for them if they price it at 150-200$ it will actually be a direct competitor with the Corsair 540 and would be a smart move. Above that I don't see it selling well at all: why go for the pricier solution when you can have the same for only 150$?

What you get with the Lian Li d600 is an aluminum case that can hold 2 360 rads (one being as thick as you want) and a 240 rad. It has the ability to have 6 3.5 inch drives in it as well as the ability to use a bay reservoir in it if you choose. For water cooling this case has much more to offer. Hopefully the price will be at or under the $250 mark. I think that that is a fair price for what this case has to offer.

Good point indeed.

Because the only thing that bugs me of the 540 is that you only have 2 bays. I would be fine with that IF they WEREN'T vertical... No matter what you put in there (bay res, fan controller, etc) will be weird looking since it will end up on its side.

And last time I checked the 2 things I mentioned above weren't made for a vertical position. Actually never saw a ''bay accessory'' that was designed to go in the vertical position, only horizontal...

for me to pay top dollar for the d600 it has to have really thin bezels on both sides. front be able to be flipped to be vertical or horizontal (ie be able to unscrew feet for lateral). have more rounded edges.
i would pay $250 max for that.

With a simple mod, you can remove the feet I would think and place them on the bottom to make it horizontal.

i did some research on lian li and i'm a little impressed. they are a korean company and have a bit higher stands compared to chinese stuff. and word is they are still taking feedback on the design of the pc-d600 before they release it. imo its the closest thing to perfection.

i know someone will hit it right be it lian li or coolmaster. i'm just not feeling that 540 like that. but the build is super.


i was at another forum and a lian li guy contacted me on facebook asked me to check out that pc-d600.

Why do you care to see the PSU, I'd rather I'd it along with all the cables!

It just seems to me that the D600 is Lian Li's cheap take on CaseLabs type chassis. Don't get me wrong, I like Lian Li cases, but if they plan to charge over $300, I'd rather get a CaseLabs chassis.

However if its under $300, I'm skeptical about that...but if it is, it might be a good buy, simple and does the job.
