The latest case from Keelung, Taiwan based Lian Li is a micro-atx mini-tower that is accommodating for storage aficionados with up support for up to to seven hot-swappable 3.5″ drives. A custom PCB powered by a 4-pin MOLEX connector at the back allows users to easily swap drives and configure them in advanced RAID functions. Despite the compact space, the PC-M25 also supports graphics cards up to 410mm long and power supplies up to 230mm long. The power supply is mounted sideways right beside the micro-ATX motherboard however so this limits the CPU cooler height to 80mm tall. While this is too short for most tower air coolers, this is more than enough room for most top-flow air coolers.
Hot-Swap Ready and a Plethora of Drive Mounts: Lian Li’s New PC-M25
Latest mATX Mini Tower Chassis fits up to Seven 3.5” HDDs and gigantic Graphics Cards
February 3, 2016, Keelung, Taiwan – Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd announces the PC-M25 chassis. This small form factor (SFF) chassis offers ample storage options and a hot-swap HDD cage for advanced storage applications.
Mini Tower, Maximized Drive Capacity
The PC-M25 includes a hot-swap HDD rack where users can conveniently install and remove up to five 3.5” drives with rubber suspension and without needing tools. The bottom HDD tray can mount an additional three 2.5” or two 3.5” drives. This makes a total of as many as seven 3.5” hard drives for advanced RAID storage applications.
Spacious Clearances and microATX
The PC-M25 has space enough to fit mammoth VGA cards up to 410mm in length and ATX PSUs up to 230mm long. Unlike its little brother the PC-Q25, it can be installed with Mini-ITX as well as microATX motherboards, with four expansion slots for more elaborate builds. Users can install CPU coolers up to 80mm in height.
Streamlined Cooling and Airflow
The PC-M25 employs a simple cooling design while maintaining great performance. Using a high-airflow, low-RPM 140mm fan, it intakes fresh air through two vents on both side panels, through the HDD cage, and exhausts through a 120mm fan at the back of the top panel. A removable dust filter is positioned on the bottom of the case under the removable HDD tray.
Clean Design and Quality Construction
Lian Li is famed for its quality of construction and minimal design, exemplified by the PC-M25. Everything from the power button to the case stands are cut from quality aluminum; it’s a solid, lightweight chassis weighing only 8.24 pounds.
Price and Availability
The PC-M25 will be available at the mid-February for $169.
