Lian Li T60 Technical Specifications

Our T60 review sample was shipped directly from Taiwan in the retail packaging you see above. Lian Li did a good job of presenting the T60 to consumers on the front panel along with smaller photos showing the optional accessories and main features of this test bench. We received the black version, but it also comes in red and silver.

 

The back panel includes a large photo of a full ATX system installed in the T60. This should could have been a good reference photo to show cable management options, but unfortunately the photo has the SATA and power cables disconnected. The full technical specifications are also available for four different languages to support consumers worldwide.

 

Opening the box showcases a well organized set of parts that make up the T60 chassis. They added extra foam around the front and back of the box for extra protection. All the parts are individually wrapped, which shows Lian Li's commitment to creating quality parts and ensuring they arrive on the consumer's doorstep unscathed.

 

Here is every part that makes up the T60 test bench. These are just the main pieces, which are all made from sturdy aluminum alloy.

 

Here's a quick shot of the assembly guide that Lian Li included with the T60. It's in black and white, and some photos to help guide you through the assembly process.

 

I enlarged the assembly guide photo that will be critical in helping me put together the T60. Each part is labeled, which should make installation quick and easy.

 

To go along with the aluminum alloy parts, Lian Li also included rubber case feet, rubber grommets for the hard drive cage, motherboard standoffs and screws, thumbscrews, and other parts to complete the T60 build.

 

Lastly, Lian Li included a pair of soft gloves, more rubber grommets, and power and reset button wires.

Not sure how you did it, but you didn't put this thing together properly. The end pieces are pointing the wrong way, the PSU is on the wrong side, the HDD cage is on the wrong side.

Compare your final pic to this one...

I just purchased and received my Li T60 Pitstop today. I love the design of the case. I must say if it were not for your photos and instructions on this site, it might have taken me a whole day to figure out how to put it together.
First off the instructions in black and white that came in the box were just horrible to say the least. I ordered through Amazon and I guess they had it sent by J Electronics. They sent it in the manufactures box it came in with the little plastic white handle. There was no stuffing inside except for the Styrofoam around the inside everything else was just sliding around. The only reason I'm sure nothing got scratched was because each piece was in plastic. Then on top of that the box was not even taped close or sealed; all I had to do was pull back the little tongue under the handle and it was open. I am really surprised it made it with nothing lost. It was shipped UPS and the label was just glued to the lower corner on the manufactures box face.

I'm sent a message to Amazon also. Sorry for venting and thanks for your great instructions and pictures; they were a life saver; believe me.

Thanks for your ear and this site.
