However, Lian Li did not neglect the design either. The Lian Li TU150 with its extremely compact dimensions of 20.3 x 37.5 x 31.2 cm is particularly easy to transport and therefore has a practical fold-out handle on the top. The side, front, side and top covers made of black brushed aluminum are particularly chic.

Lian Li TU150A Mini-ITX: high mobility thanks to compact design
In the TU150A Mini-ITX case, Lian Li relies on power supplies in SFX instead of ATX form factor to create more space for powerful gaming hardware. The power supply is placed at the top behind the front, an internal extension cable leads to the rear slot for the power plug. The slots for the cables protrude to the left and are covered by a metal cover. Lian Li quickly split the cable management. There is space for this under the removable aluminum lid as well as behind the rear wall of the mainboard tray. Mainboards in Mini-ITX or Mini-DTX format can be mounted on the tray. A total of three PCI slot covers allow the installation of high-end graphics cards with a maximum length of 32 centimeters. You can have a height of 2.5 slots. If fans are installed on the floor, the height is reduced to two slots.
The horizontal airflow concept with the front and rear 120 mm fan slots sufficiently cools all installed hardware components. On the front cover made of brushed aluminum, close-meshed air intakes are integrated on the sides, in front of the fan slot there is a removable dust filter. In addition, two fans can be attached to the underside, which can lead the graphics card's waste heat to the outside. Despite the extremely compact design, CPU coolers with a maximum height of 165 millimeters can be accommodated in the Lian Li PC-TU150A. If you prefer water cooling, you can attach a 120 radiator on the back instead of the fan.
Two 2.5-inch data storage devices can be installed in the Lian Li PC-TU150A between the mainboard and the front and on the lid above the mainboard. Instead, a 3.5-inch drive can be attached there, the necessary rubber decouplers are included with the case. The I / O panel at the front on the top has, in addition to the obligatory audio connections and power / reset buttons, a USB 3.1 Type-C and two 3.0 type A ports.
