Conclusion: As a whole, the PC-TU200 is an interesting case. Once put together I don’t think you can’t find a better option for portability while still being able to fit such a powerful build inside of it. That being said, you really need to plan out your build before starting to build in this case. Specifically with the power supply, if you don’t plan on picking up a shorter PSU you will have to remove the hard drive cage just to fit everything like we did.
Summary: Final Thoughts
Lian Li has been coming out with quite a few cases aimed at the small form factor crowd over the past couple of years and they all are feature packed and quality made. The PC-TU200 is no exception, it has a ton of features and of course is made to last. Like most all Lian Li cases the PC-TU200 is made completely of Aluminum and has that nice finish we are used to seeing on Lian Li cases. It comes in both black and silver flavors.
Pros: – Lots of room inside for storage, – Cool side panel release system, – All aluminum, – USB 3.0 and eSATA, – Carrying handle
Summary: The Lian Li PC-TU200 Case is like nothing else on the market. It's designed specifically to be transported with a handle, rugged, small and stylish. A perfect option if you're attending LAN parties or carrying your computer outside your home/office. It comes with a 140mm fan at the front, lots of drives, fits long video cards. I believe gamers will love this case.
Excerpt: It is well known in the computer enthusiast circle that Lian Li makes some of the best cases in the business. They are known for their stylish looks, ease of use, and quality construction. So when I heard we were getting their new mini-ITX case, the PC-TU200, I was excited. With the push for lower power draw, high performance chips right now, we are seeing more and more small form factor products popping up.
Excerpt: For those who don't remember or just aren't old enough to remember the Cold War, the Nuclear Football is something that went right over your head. Let me try to bring you up to speed. There was a time in this country where thick aluminum cases were used to house all of the world's top information as it was being transferred from place to place. Remember, this was even before digital transfers were as common and secure as they are today.
Conclusion: Lian Li's goals with the PC-TU200 and its intended purpose are both admirable and, in my opinion, realistic...at least in concept. I'm not 100% certain Lian Li could be successful with what they're trying to do without adding an inch or two here and there to the TU200's dimensions, but I don't think it's out of the question either.
Summary: Lian Lis PC-TU200 ist eines der wenigen Gehäuse, das ein völlig eigenständiges Design vorweisen kann. Durch die symmetrische Form mit den abgerundeten Ecken, den Eckbeschlägen und dem Tragegriff erinnert der Cube frappierend an einen Alu-Koffer. Auch im Detail wird deutlich, dass Lian Li viel Wert auf das Erscheinungsbild des Gehäuses gelegt hat.
Pros: einzigartiges Koffer-Design mit praktischem Nutzen - leicht zu transportieren, vier Hot-Swap-Einschübe, entnehmbarer HDD-Käfig, SSD-Montageplatz auf dem Boden, Platz für Dual-Slot-Grafikkarte

Excerpt: Lian Li tente un joli coup avec son TU-200, un boîtier aux dimensions réduites capable d'accueillir tout ce dont a besoin le joueur, le vrai. Mais en entassant les composants qui chauffent, ce boîtier est-il vraiment prêt à affronter une Lan Party estivale ?
Pros: Alu intégral, Qualité globale, Agencement travaillé...
Cons: ... mais très serré, Dissipation thermique pas optimale, Gestion des câbles délicate, Oblige à faire des concessions
Excerpt: Una de las ultimas creaciones es un concepto realmente útil para usuarios y también para profesionales que ahora pueden disponer de sistemas Mini-ITX en un formato transportable de gran calidad.
