    Case Layout and Features

    The front of the case offers three tool-less 5.25" drive bays under matching Aluminum covers.  Two of these are completely tool-less with the third opting to use the included thumb screws.  Above the bays but hidden from view is another control slot designed to hold the optional tiny PT-FN01 fan controller.
    Intake fan duties are handled by a 140mm fan behind another removable steel mesh filter.  The front venting is cut directly into the surface and looks great even without accent lighting.  The stock PC-6 does not offer any additional fan mounts though most systems will be fine with the two.  Enthusiasts will be able to upgrade side panel or even the center of the front panel with some simple mods.
    The interior layout is pretty standard with good separation between the components for airflow and ease of installation.  The internal drive cage will hold three 3.5" hard drives and an additional 2.5" drive mount is located on top.  Drives are mounted facing the door with plenty of room between drives for the front fan to do its work.  
    Removing the drive bays is accomplished by removing three thumbscrews making installing and upgrading drives a breeze. There are several optional drive bay expansions offered on the Lian Li site for those with more storage needs.
