Hello all! I am in love with the Lian Li PC-TU 100, and I have been dreaming of building a high power gaming rig in one of these cases for a long time.
The plan for this PC is to be a compact, portable, high power gaming rig. However, out of the box, this case has many issues.Sample Case Images (Click to show)
The case is designed to have 1x 120 mm case fan in the front of the case, and use an SFX power supply as an exhaust. The bottom of the case is designed to house 2x 2.5" HDD/SSDs, so there is no intake for the GPU. Also, out of the box, the case only supports up to a 60mm Heatsink for the CPU. Many members in the Lian Li PC TU100/200 Owners Club
have reported issues with thermals, specifically in the GPU region, as well as an inability to efficiently cool overclocked CPUs.
A lot of the inspiration of this build comes from @UncalledForGabe
's Lian Li TU100 Heavy Breather Case Mod
. In his build, he managed to install x5 Case Fans, and custom sleeved PSU cables.
I am not anticipating painting the case like he did, but I do plan on trying to pack in as much airflow as possible. The goal for this systems is to be a fully overclockable air-cooled system.Check List/Goals (Click to show)
So what's up with the name? (Click to show)
- Fully Air Cooled
- Overclockable CPU/GPU
- Side Panel Window
- Custom Sleeved Non-Modular Flex-ATX PSU
- RGB Case Lighting

Honestly, there is nothing special about the name. I am a big anime nerd, and all of my computers are named after some random anime character. The names are selected by either myself or my girlfriend, who is also a huge anime nerd.
That being said, when I picked the name for this, I literally googled "Short Anime Characters", and one of the results was Chiaki Nanami
, from Dangan Ronpa, which happens to be one of my girlfriend's favorite Visual Novels and animes. It just so happens that Chiaki's title in the game is "Ultimate Gamer".
Even though it is super tacky, and the color scheme of this build is not necessarily appropriate in regards to matching the characters, it doesn't really matter to me. I am happy with the name, and the uncanny coincidence.
One final thing to note, this project is going to take me several months to get put together. If you are interested in seeing my first major case mod succeed (or fail), stay tuned!
