Summary: The X500 oozes quality craftsmanship and offers both low noise levels and exceptional cooling performance. Were it not for the side-mounted drive bays, Lian Li would have a case that everyone could at least lust after. However, due to its unique drive bay configuration, the X500 will probably only appeal to people who like their cases on the ground with unencumbered access to the side panel.
Summary: The Lian Li Tyr PC-X5000 comes close to perfection - just like the X2000 does. It manages to give you the most space while keeping the overall dimensions of the enclosure to an absolute minimum. The interior layout is very similar to that of its bigger brother, but - due to the small size - does not offer as many hard drive bays or any SATA backplates.
Pros: Compartment design, Complete accessory set included, Huge amount of space for such an incredibly compact chassis, Not deep at all, Two 120 mm intake fans included, Two 120 mm exhaust fans included, Modern, clean & elegant design, Drives can be installed either to open toward left or right, Molex and mainboard headers for fans, Fan controller to adjust up to four fans., Can easily hold large graphic cards, Completely silent operation, Awesome airflow, Incredibly quiet ...
Cons: Price, Side panels hard to fit, Very compact, needs a lot of patience to get cable routing down.
Summary: Lian Li Tyr PC-X500 is an all-aluminum case targeted to the average user that demands a high-quality case. Here is a summary of what we found about this case.
In summary, this is an excellent case if you want a top-notch all-aluminum case that is shorter than traditional cases to save space on your desktop. High-end users, however, may need more bays.
