It is not often that we at Overclockerstech feel truly honoured to review case. We have been screaming for something new and creative for a long time and the Lian Li spider test bench has done it. Yes we know a spider has eight legs and not four, however this comes close and is the most apt.
For a tough test station this case does NOT fit the bill as it is too fragile, however if one wishes to use this as a Lanparty computer, then it would be the centre piece of the entire show. There are some minor flaws that need to be addressed, such as the barrels that form the lynch pin on the spiders knees! They would certainly need to be manufactured from steel to give strength to the spiders knee and leg joints. Lastly the assembly instructions must to be changed to allow a more clear build as they are very dark and look photo-copied.
Normally these small issues would earn the chassis a silver award; however one cannot ignore that this case is the very essence of creativity and is what we on this website have been screaming for.
In short Lian Li have shown pure creativity in a box; that promises to show a shining brilliance in the future computer cases that are yet to come.
