As each case of PC-O series corresponds to the PC O7SX its format more or less a classic desktop chassis, but without really fit into this category - if only because of its dimensions. Though it can also position it horizontally using optional stands, the focus lies clearly on the operation in the vertical direction - that is provides both through the large glass window that covers the entire left side of the housing and a good view of the built-in hardware, clearly and through the wall mounting option on the right side and the supplied feet for upright.
The PC O7SX is the largest version of the PC-O series, offering as O6SX three 120 mm fans in the lid. The case width is 148 millimeters or 178 mm with pedestal. Despite these small width find motherboards up to standard ATX and normal ATX power supplies in the housing space, as opposed to the PC O5- and PC versions O6 enables significantly enhanced component selection and overall more powerful systems. Even some over wide ATX motherboards with up to 271 mm wide can be installed. Due to the still relatively small housing width, the maximum height of the CPU cooler is 85 millimeters. If more cooling capacity than such flat air coolers is necessary, a water cooling system can be integrated without difficulty in this case - together with the 120-mm fans in the lid and a slim radiator can in 360 mm format with up to 35 mm thickness to be built in. The use of all-in-one water cooling systems is of course possible, as long as the maximum radiator thickness is maintained.
A special feature that comes to the small width of the housing benefit, is the placement of graphics or other expansion card. Instead these as usual to be connected directly to the motherboard, here a riser cable is used, rotated the map by 90 degrees by means of which is mounted and thus in the lower housing portion is upright - the side that usually houses the fan on the graphics card, is thus in combination with the glass cover as well visible as the motherboard. Optical tidbits that can be excited at a maximum backplate stir in normal cases, come here so full advantage - just as well as high-quality motherboards and memory modules with email Heatspreaders. Because not only one or two, but four expansion slots are available, and high-end cars with sweeping Triple-Slot or even larger coolers can be installed here, which can be up to 320 mm long also - or even longer, if the hard drive cage is removed behind the front.
For optical drives, a slim slot for drives with the standard height of 12.7 mm is offered. Who does not need this, can there still install a 2.5- or 3.5-inch drive. Another two or three drives (3x 2.5 inch or a 2.5 and two 3.5-inch drives) found on a support behind the motherboard and place the aforementioned drive cage behind the front holds a 2.5 and three 3.5-inch drives. Other two drives (3x 2.5 or 3x 3.5 inches) can be installed, if they are not add-in cards or the riser card is placed closer to the glass, to create space. To conceal the in comparison to high-end graphics cards and mainboards optically most unattractive drives in the shaft behind the front, is the case with an aluminum bezel.
Besides this diaphragm allow several other details to build extremely tidy and visually impressive systems with this case. As usual with Lian Li is the "SW" in the product name for a white body with black interior, and despite the already low housing width between Mainboardtray and right sidewall more than 30 millimeters square - along with the openings in Mainboardtray who exactly is located where normally the connections of the individual components sit, thus can be run behind the tray all cables along the shortest path, so that they are no longer visible through the glass. The large spacing of 30 mm allows the relaxed stowing also longer and more voluminous wiring harnesses, so here clean builds are possible without modular PSU.
