Lian-Li XB-01 Xbox 360 Case

29 September 2008
  • Summary: Sure the Lian-Li XB-01 looks great. It did already turn some heads at Computex, where it was shown off to the public as a prototype. But even the reviewed product, which is intended to be a retail unit, has obvious design flaws. There is not just one flaw and the slew of problems make this unit hard to recommend. Starting from the size, noise level, inability to use more than one memory cards, large openings for USB.
  • Pros: Nice outer, Lian-Li design, Works for both Xbox 360 types (with or without HDMI), Can be used for every Xbox 360 revision, Very detailed manual, X Clamps included on the board, Ring Of Light works well, 120 mm fan, Water cooling ready, Sound dampening materials around the drives, Large air vent up front
  • Cons: Pricey, the entire console only costs double that., One memory card will no longer fit, Hard drive can no longer be taken off easily, Sound dampening gets in the way of the chassis, DVD eject & pairing buttons do not reach properly, Case is much larger than the Xbox 360 original, Not that much quieter than the original chassis, USB 2.0 door just as large as optical drive bay, bare USB plugs look ugly when opened, Loss of warranty on your console, Rear AV connector ope...

Lian Li XB-01

15 February 2011
  • Conclusion: Ideally I could do with having two conclusions here, one for the XB-01 on it’s own, and one for it with QuietPC modifications. However, I’ll just stick with one, and instead have two Pros/Cons and star ratings. The Lian Li XB-01 is a nice upgrade for your Xbox 360 that goes beyond simple face plates, and noisy rear coolers. The cooling is superior to that of a standard Xbox, though not by huge margins.
  • Pros: Looks good, Stands out, Quieter than standard Xbox, Fan noise is practically inaudible, even at load, DVD drive much quieter, Warranty, Professional install
  • Cons: Doesn’t quieten the DVD drive much, Fans still not silent at full load, No dust filters, DVD drive still makes some noise, High price
