The Muse series

Lian Li has announced two new HTPC cases, both part of the Lian Li's new Muse series. The newly announced HTPC cases, the PC-C36 and the PC-C37, will be made out of aluminum with the dimensions set at 435x94x378 mm (WxHxD) for both models and they will come in either silver or black.

Both of these cases are basically the same with some exceptions when it comes to the expansion slots. The PC-C36 model supports either two full size expansion slots with a "riser card" or four low profile expansion slots while the PC-C37 is limited to only four low profile expansion slots. The other difference between the two is that the PC-C36 will come with a built-in 300W TFX PSU while on the PC-C37 model accepts a standard ATX power supply and as such doesn't come with one pre-installed.

Both of these HTPC cases supports mATX motherboards and come with a single 5.25-inch external drive bay and two 3.5-inch internal drive bays. Both of them are also cooled by a rear 70mm low profile fan that spins at 1,500RPM and both have two USB 2.0 ports, one Firewire and and HD+AC97 audio ports placed on the fron panel.

Of course, as you would expect from Lian Li, both of them look great and the polished aluminum will make sure that they will fit in any living room environment. As you can see from the pictures below its hard to tell which one is which unless they are opened.
