The PC as a train – A very special kind of mobile Computing with the Lian Li PC-CK101


A fan has been provided and already mounted between the wagon and the locomotive inside the wagon. Lian Li can do almost everything, but fans still can’t. Of course, the installed model is not a nasty turbine, but you can hear the air whisk very prominently, which clearly counteracts the very quiet power supply. Either you throttle the Luftikus down to 7 volts using its own adapter (which is just about enough in principle), or you replace it completely: simple and painless.

I once again chose a noise blocker from the eLoop series for the replacement, since these fans probably achieve the best results at the moment – not for nothing did I recommend them in our Christmas special. Since we are not exactly in the budget range with the casing and components, a few Euros for the best on the market shouldn’t matter anymore. The very powerful model I installed is of course a bit oversized for a small system, but seemed appropriate for cooling support of the initially installed Core i7 -3770K.

By the way, you can do without the air filter if you, in contrast to Lian Li and me, mount the fan blowing out, which even helps the cooling (negative pressure principle).

Tolle Idee, da hüpft das Bastlerherz vor Freude beim Lesen (auch wenn es für Dich harte Arbeit war). Ich habe den Artikel sehr genossen, genau das Richtige zum Ausklang des Abends bei einem Gläschen Lagavulin. Ich freue mich schon auf den zweiten Teil.
