Tons of room for hardware inside both cases

Lian Li has pulled the covers off a pair of new full tower computer cases for computer enthusiasts: the PC-A75X and the PC-A76X. Both cases are made completely from aluminum and have plenty of space for hard drives and other hardware.
 
The cases are very similar with the difference being that the A75X has a removable front panel and the A76X has a lockable front bezel door.

Inside the cases is space for 12 3.5-inch hard drives. The case also has space for up to three 2.5-inch hard drives. That means the user can install normal desktop hard drives or smaller SSDs without having to use adapter rails. The cases have tool-less features and are all black on the inside. Both the cases are 23-inches tall and 8.6-inches wide allowing for lots of hardware. They also have dual 5.25-inch bays that are accessible from the front.
 
The cooling system for the cases includes three 140 mm fans in the hard drive bay area, a 120 mm fan at the rear the case, and options for two more 120 mm fans on the top and on the side of the cases. The cases also have dual USB 3.0 ports, dual USB 2.0 ports, and HD audio ports on top.

The A75X will sell for $199 and the A76X will sell for $219. Both cases are set for availability in the U.S. and Canada by the end of September.

These are things of beauty! to bad i never pay more than $70 for a power supplyless case. My steely Antec Sonata has had at least 3 different sets of guts and i have found no reason to change it.

the 75X looks just amazing. Definitely something to keep in mind once my TJ07 makes it's transition to being a file server.

There is always that! i usually have more mobo's laying around than cases. Just with the way the economy is its hard to justify $219 for a case when you can get a pretty decent SSD for that price. If i did want to swap out my old steely i would seriously consider a Lian-li.

I'd pay. My larger cases end up being pieces of furniture due to their size and nowhere to hide them away. I paid over £220 for my TJ07 and that was money very well spent. Just want to spend some more hehe. In reality though once this current case becomes a server, i'll be moving to a shuttle or similar. Long gone are the days of requiring monsterous radiators in order to overclock your cpu, other than hdd bays, doesn't seem any justification in buying large cases any more. If it can fit a halfway decent heatsink and a graphics card, job done, i remember when something like a thermalright 120ex would barely be considered adequate if overclocking by any worthwhile amount.

Same here. My trusty Chieftec is around since Athlon64 (non X2) days and it isn't going anywhere.

The interior of these cases look awesome.

I bought a Lian-Li PC-V1100 aluminum case almost 8 years ago. Paid $250 for it then and but I knew it'd keep it for a long time. I'm still using it today and it still looks fresh. So $250 was worth it. It's gone through 5 motherboards so far.

I don't think I'd put one on my desk but the 75 looks like it would make a great tower server case.

I've got a Lian Li A04 myself and it's a fantastic little case. Solidly built, excellent craftsmanship and the Aluminum is nice and thick. It offers wire management and it's designed well so everything fits.

It doesn't look extravagant, it's a very minimalist case. No extra crud. But everything it does have is completely useful. You can also buy parts and mix and match from other cases if you want extra vents or whatnot. It's riveted together and can come apart and back together with a simple $10 rivet gun.
