Lian-Li PC-C50 Case
Here’s a quick review of an HTPC case from Lian Li, makers of all aluminum chassis. I used to have one, and the design was wonderful, not sure I’m a HUGE fan of this design but it seems to serve its purpose.
You can see from the pictures here, that the center bar is VERY close to my graphics card, in fact once the bar is screwed in it is preventing the removal of the power plugs from the card. Although it is very close, they are not touching. On a plus side the center bar is aluminum and will conduct heat so it may be acting as a additional heat sink. This is a very unique problem that is only going to happen with a Mini-ITX board and a full size graphics card with heat pipes, but it is still something to note.
