Lian-Li’s PC-C32 is a bit
of an odd ball. It’s too big to be practically rack mounted, and the lack of
any gamer style vents or flashy LED fans limits its appeal to home enthusiasts.
The enclosure is certainly well built and easy to work with, plus it’s peppered
with lovely finishing touches - every screw glides in effortlessly, everything
slots in perfectly, and the rear-loading power supply is genius - but it lacks
features. Most noticeable is that there are only two 5.25-inch drive bays and
it’s reasonably loud when powered. You can of course use your own fans or
purchase an additional cooling module, but that’s not really the point. Those
looking to build a HTPC might want to look closer (at least if you’re looking
for a subdued look), but the PC-C32 is a bit wasted unless it is rack mounted.
A bit of an enigma this one. @ ITreviewed @
