Making unique cases for desktop PCs isn’t exactly a new thing to Lian Li; in fact, given one of their previous efforts I’d say this one’s a bit tame. The company calls it the Cowry, an attempt to build a case that’s both practical and artistic. I’d say the Cowry succeeds on one of those.
As you can see, the Cowry resembles a nautilus shell, except its red LEDs make it look like a shell from a demonic nautilus. A gigantic, demonic nautilus with USB ports. If its outside appearance won’t win you over, perhaps what it has on the inside will. The Cowry is about 8.6″ wide, 19.7″ high and 16.1″long, and has enough room to fit even the largest graphics cards. The Cowry can also house up to 3 3.5″ HDDs and 2 2.5″ HDDs at once via tool-less mounting brackets.
The case was also designed to provide ample ventilation and easy access, with features like two side mounted 4.7″ fans, removable air filters on the front and back and behind the PSU, rubber cable holes, a cable clamp and more.
The PC-U6 Cowry case should be available later this month for $350 (USD). Check out Lian Li’s website for more pics and info.
