Hardware Secrets managed to get a hold of Lian-Li’s soon to be released Tyr PC-X500 case, slightly shorter than a traditional full tower case with a ~$350 price tag.  Able to hold up to four 120mm fans, sporting washable dust filters and an uniquely placed PSU bracket, this case will stand out; as you might expect from Lian Li.  The review wasn’t all positive though, see what Lian-Li neglected.

“Tyr PC-X500 is an all-aluminum mid-tower case that Lian Li will be launching very soon, featuring two 5 ¼” bays, one external 3 ½” bay and four internal 3 ½” bays in two hard disk drive cages, plus four 120-mm fans (with a speed control circuit for two of them). It uses a very unique design, being shorter than traditional tower-style cases. This was accomplished by moving the external bays to the side of the case instead of being located on the front of the case. We had the opportunity of reviewing this case before it reaches the market. Check it out.”
