Noise reduction is always going to be something we will deal with for personal computers, at least until we figure out a way to cool components with a static system. During the meantime Lian Li will continue to help with reducing the noise your PC generates with its newest PC-B12 case.
To further reduce noise, the front panel of the PC-B12 does not have any vents. Instead the case sits on 4 tall rubber feet (to reduce vibration noise) to allow ample air into the PSU vent with removable dust filter and 120 mm wide intake vent. The air in the case is circulated by two 140 mm fans behind the front panel which assist in pulling air into the case from the bottom vent.
The Lian Li PC-B12 also comes with an array of user friendly features. There are three 3.5″ hot-swappable bays and one 2.5″ bay. Two 5.25″ bays and eight expansion slots are all tool-less like the hotswap bays. It also includes two USB 3.0 ports located on the top I/P panel. This of course is in the traditional aluminum chassis Lian Li is known for and it comes at a great MSRP of $169. While the PC-B12 may not be the best option for extreme performance, this should be a great case for nearly everyone else.
