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.

They have noise isolation for the hard drives. For everything else it's all about airflow. Choose the proper case with enough airflow and put some big slow fans in there. Big fans on the heatsinks as well.

Check out some of the Thermalright heatsinks. You can overclock on air with some of those monstrosities and it's almost as good as watercooling. It's superior to all in one watercooling setups like the H80 or the H100 and much quieter.

It's all about choices and your system configuration. If you bought a Lian Li or ANY OTHER CASE and it's noisy, that's your fault.

That's not necessarily true, aluminum can be made quieter by simply putting more ridges in it so it doesn't flex as much, sort of like how they stamp out pickup truck beds, though if done to steel it'd be even quieter.

I've a much simpler solution though, set the case under your desk and if near a wall, put a piece of carpet behind it. Don't put any fans in front where the noise directly radiates out the front. At worst just buy some inexpensive thin backed carpeting and construction adhesive and line the case with it, then it'll look fancy as well as being quiet. Just be sure to do it to a filtered case, getting dust out of carpet in a small area is a PITA.
