Video Review #1166 Summary

Sponsored by: Lian Li Industrial Co., Ltd.
Review category: Cases
Manufacturer info: More info

The Lian Li Pitstop PC-T7 Mini-ITX Test Bench is certainly one of a kind and a very different looking product. Lian Li are well know for their outstanding design and build quality and this product reflects it. While not many people are in the market for a Mini-ITX Test Bench, if you are this one is easy to assemble, aluminum & affordable. It also fits a regular 5.25” optical disk drive, standard ATX PSU and a 3.5” drive.

is there a full atx case like this? i run my computer skelatal anyway, and this just looks much better than having an old aluminum case with the sides off, but i need it to be full atx. and dont try to get on me about dust from not closing the case, i actualy get less dust since i opened it than i did before, and slightly (barely) cooler temps, i just keep it open because i do mess with the parts relatively frequently (2 or 3 times a month) and having it open just doesnt bother me. i'm just curious if there is a "test bench" like this that handles full size atx. also more hdd trays, i'd be throwing 4 hdds and a dvd burner at it.

this is really neat looks like a miniture factory machine having all the components in there sure lets me understand how invaluable a piece of equipment can be.

Where can I get one 3dgman? I googled it but it's nothing but reviews. I want one!

You can get one at NewEgg, it's listed as Lian Li PC-T7. I got one from NewEgg and amazingly the box received very little damage from shipping. And the case is awesome, I love it.

Why when i try to vote, it redirects me to a random news or review and doesn't even take my vote????

I don't own or have I used a test bench. It does not make sense to me to limit your self to mini ITX. I would want something more versatile.

a couple of things:

1. What is the price? (the newegg link is for a different product).

2. At the end of the video, you make this awkward movement, to turn off the camera I guess, it really looks not natural.

3. The time listed on the top of each comment is messed up, because comments maid on a later time are shown first.

and I guess the case is fine, if you are a reviewer or a technician.

Everything looks fine to me. Can you explain in better detail the problem you are having?

They do, the T60 which fits mATX & ATX form factor motherboards. I've requested it for review, so hopefully they will send so I can have a closer look it.

1:40 *case-in-pieces* "I'll have a lot more on this product..." lol ^^ (I know a bit off topic...)

 

However, I'm really inquisitively about this so called "case"

Yea, I still have the Palit GTX 460 Video Card in my system and was using one of the LCDs for gaming and stuff. So I have room between the displays to swing one LCD into a landscape mode if the need arises.

I'll have have another GTX 460 soon enough and then I can game using the 3 LCD surround setup.

Little is the key word here, Mini-ITX ;) Very nice setup and there is another Test Bench model they have for Micro-ATX & ATX form factor motherboards (PC-T60).
