Lian Li was showing a Yacht-themed aluminum chassis at their booth on the CES show floor, and this is certainly among the most unusual designs we've seen for an enclosure.
There is room for a powerful system within the enclosure, as the length of the boat design (just over 30 inches) allows for longer graphics cards (up to 300 mm supported). You will need an SFX power supply for this mini-ITX build, and CPU coolers will need to be of the low-profile variety with a 60 mm clearance available.
Specifications for the PC-Y6:
- Motherboard Type: Mini-ITX
- Body Material: Aluminum
- Colors: Silver, white (pictured)
- Expansion Slot: 2
- Compatibility: VGA Card length: 300 mm; CPU cooler height: 60 mm
- HDD bay: 3.5” HDD x2; 2.5” HDD x2
- PSU Type: SFX
- System Fan: 120mm x1
- I/O Ports: None
- Dimensions (W x H x D) 764 x 293 x 259 mm (30.08 x 11.54 x 10.20 inches)
- Net Weight: 4.9 kg (10.8 lbs)
This is obviously not going to appeal to everyone, but if you've followed Lian Li over the years they release these novel enclosures from time to time. It was very impressive looking in person and feels well constructed with Lian Li's usual high level of fit and finish.
