Lian Li designed it right, a test bench that is versatile, can be closed (optional) and can house HDDs and SSDs. It comes with a proper PCIe slot bracket and yeah, the concept has been designed with liquid cooling in mind. We’ll show you the build (and it really is a build that will take you an hour or so). The end result is a proper test bench on which you can pop and change motherboards, house storage units, and any size PSU as well as some cable management. So yes, a chassis where you can easily mount your gear and accompanying components.

For roughly €119 you purchase the base unit, the Open-Air version. Handy for easy access to your motherboard and or components. However you can make a closed chassis out of it by purchasing the optional Lian Li T70-1 kit, that one costs €60 (with prices roughly similar in USD). Lian Li calls that their Radiator Fan mounting kit. The trick is that indeed you can mount rads and fans to the extra panels, but it also includes a plexiglass cover panel that closes up your components.
