Besides SilverStone, Cooler Master, and Antec, another leading computer enclosure manufacturer is Lian Li, which is a brand well known among computer enthusiasts for building some of the best and most unique computer cases that have ever hit the markets. One of the most recent products introduced by Lian Li is the PC-A05N, which may be sized very small, but has a unique layout with its back-to-front design. Rather than pulling air into the chassis from the front and exhausting it at the rear, the Lian Li PC-A05N is designed to pull in the fresh air from the back of the ATX chassis and then the exhaust is at the front, which Lian Li engineers claim will deliver dramatically better performance.

Our Lian Li PC-A05N review sample arrived straight from Taiwan. The cardboard box arrived slightly beaten, but everything was intact and there was no damage to the aluminum case itself. Protecting the case while being shipped were two Styrofoam molds on both ends of the case along with a heavy-gauge plastic bag in which this case resided. The mounting hardware, accessories, and user's manual for the PC-A05N were found within the case itself in the internal 3.5" drive bay area. This case is available in silver and black models, with our review unit being the black version.
