Even the accessories program is very comprehensive, high quality processing and top-functional. This not only Lian-Li housing benefit premium supplements.
Space is, especially for small enclosures in short supply. Appear to offer mini and HTPCs example, usually only a limited number of drive slots. Lian Li is now presenting an elegant solution to this problem. It uses a conventional 5.25-inch bay is used to include not only the optical drive, but also to accommodate 3.5 - or 2.5-inch storage.
The solution is equally simple and ingenious: instead of a conventional 5.25-inch drive takes the mounting frame on only a scaled-Slim version. This is the space requirement considerably more moderate and does not therefore scope for more slots. Thus, under the optical drive space for a 3.5-inch or two 2.5-inch HDDs or SSDs.
During the 3.5-inch hard drive is mounted longitudinally, the 2.5-inch SSDs sit across. To ensure connectivity, a recess in the right carrier has been inserted. Since the front trim is black, the use of the rack for optical reasons is recommended especially when the same black-colored chassis.
At the front there is also a mini-USB port in the lower right corner. Thus the panel appears at first glance like a conventional optical drive.
