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)
  • Fully Air Cooled
  • Overclockable CPU/GPU
  • Side Panel Window
  • Custom Sleeved Non-Modular Flex-ATX PSU
  • RGB Case Lighting

So what's up with the name? (Click to show)
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. thumb.gif

One idea I have been bouncing around is the following:



Removing the stock grill from the case, and mounting the front fan to the front using the above "Overkill Grill". In doing so, it would theoretically increase airflow, and add some additional color and form to the build. As of right now, the theme for the build is Black and Silver. With the addition of the side panel window, I think this mod would be perfect addition to this build.

On the other hand, this addition would result in an extra protrusion in the front of the case, and I am not sure how tasteful it would look.

Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.


As of right now, this mod will not take place until closer to the end of the build, so as I approach that point, I will provide more photos to get more ideas.

Are you just looking to move the fan forward more? one option that I did awhile back was to remove the front panel (rivets) then install the fan on the front of the fan mount. Putting foam weather strip tape around the edge of the fan allowed it to seal to the front of the case drawing fresh air in.

This worked pretty well when I was testing some water cooling stuff, but you need to use a low profile fan that may not have the same flow as a full 25mm fan does.

The other thing I ended up doing was to cut out the front fan mounts, then put the 25mm fan right up against the front of the case. This gave me a pretty decent amount of extra space in the front for airflow.

That is not the sole purpose, but yes. The main reason for doing it is for the sake of changing the aesthetic of the front of the case. My thought is that if I were to use the grill, I would have to bring the fan forward. And for aesthetic purposes, I would remove the preexisting grill, allowing better visibility of the front fan.

At this point, I have my heart set on the FD 120mm fan, so modification would definitely be necessary to make it fit up front. I will definitely consider LP fans for the front in the future though. thumb.gif

If you opt for a lower powered video card, you could use a 250 watt HD Plex, which would enable you to have front and back as exhaust, while having holes on the bottom for intake. It would solve your GPU thermals and help with CPU. You'd also only need to mod the bottom and making a custom plate for the rear smile.gif

That is an interesting idea for sure. However, I already have a PSU in mind, and I want to make this solution work if at all possible. Thank you for the suggestion though! (Bookmarking that for future use) thumb.gif

Me too mate tongue.gif Glad to have you all on board!


I have a few updates for you all:

1- I have been discussing this project with several members of my family, and for the most part, they have agreed to help alleviate the costs of some of this project (in the form of Christmas Gifts). I am very appreciative of their support, as this cuts the overall cost of this project down quite a bit. That being said, this means that the bulk of the work on this project will not take place until after Christmas. I feel bad for leaving you all hanging for so long, but such is life, I suppose. redface.gif

2- I am currently in the process of negotiating with a seller of a pre-owned R9 Nano. Supposedly, he received it from an RMA claim, and has not unpacked it since he received it. So essentially, the card is brand new, minus accessories, or original box. Will keep you all posted whether or not the sale goes through.

3- I just updated the "Projected Parts" List in OP. I bought a bunch of the smaller pieces, including the fans splitters, the replacement case feet, cable sleeving supplies, as well as a few other pieces. I have also added a link directly to the PCP list that I am currently maintaining. I will not give any other insight as to what I have planned, but I will allow you to draw conclusions from that list. thumb.gif

One additional note: I added an NZXT Hue to the Parts List. I want to try a mod to make this fit, but I am not optimistic that it will actually work. I will post photo's and a better explanation as to my plan with that once it arrives.


Anyways, more to come soon!
