Lian Li’s New Motorised Gaming Desks
Lian Li’s Embedded Systems, The DK-04F And DK-05F
If you recall the phase we went through of desk and wall mounted systems then you are at least a bit familiar with what Lian Li is looking to achieve with these two new enclosures. They do offer more tricks than your average desktop build however, which are worth investigating. For one thing the glass on the top of the desk is capable of being switched from transparent to opaque, depending on your current mood and don’t worry about the strength as it is rated for up to 80kg (~180lbs). The desks are also motorized so they can be raised and lowered for different users, you can save up to four presets between 689mm to 1175mm (27-46″)-0.
The 1m wide DK-04F is built to house a single system, with a motherboard tray that can handle anything from mini-ITX to E-ATX boards, it can hold GPUs of up to 185mm in length and features numerous removable storage bays for 2.5″ and 3.5″ drives. The DK-05F’s larger 1.4m wide footprint can hold two complete systems, handy for streamers and professional tasks. These will set you back about as much as the system you would put inside, the DK-04Fius $1500 and the DK-05F is $1999.
Yep, the DK-05F can host two separate PCs inside its cavernous, 1400mm long desk belly, which could come in handy if you’re a streamer who already runs two PCs anyway. The 1000mm long DK-04F, meanwhile, only holds a single system.
