    DAMN it so shineh!
  3. These V-series Lian Li cases are the sweetest ever. The craftsmanship of these are crazy tight. I have two early versions of the V-series. I'd never waste my time or money with any other.

    Not too shabby. Pity the new full tower did away with the rolled edges that came with the V2010, likewise the vertical mount PSU position, since the bottom compartment would be tailor made for a secondary 120.3 rad (with a little creative CNC work) with plenty of room left over for pump and reservoir-once you ditch the secondary harddrive cage.

    I owned one of the older V-series cases a few years ago and loved the attention to detail and overall quality but it suffered from a rattling noise because of the Raptor hard drive that I used at the time vibrated a lot. With the noise that same drive made it was like a tin orchestra inside my case. I was able to resolve that with a silencer enclosure, but I must say I'm more than happy today with SSDs and my several times heavier HAF case :)

    We are contacting Lian Li for reviewing one of these cases, hopefully we'll have something to show in a few weeks.

    I have that Lian Li PC-Q08B, and converted a mini PC to a incredibly small footprint home server. My first Lian Li case, and money aside, hopefully not my last. These new V-series look incredible, if I only had the means to fill one of those suckers up with hardware. =o

    I'd love a full tower Lian Li case, but due to the cost I'll stick to a HAF instead! LOL.

    Lian Li PC-V2100B Plus II Black is what I use as my fileserver case - this looks very similar except it appears to have fewer drive bays. I love my 2100 btw and when I decide build a new fileserver I'm sure I'll reuse the same case.

    It's a nice, full aluminium chassis but with a lack of watercooling support, I'm not interested. I thought with it having two 140mm fans on the front there may be a possibility of putting a double radiator there, but with how close the drive bay is, there's just no chance of that happening.

    It's got plenty of support, with access grommets and three 120mm fan slot up top. Lian Li also is known for selling OEM parts tailored for customizing their cases, so a single instance where one kind of set up (where there are many many more) does not work is a poor excuse for entirely dismissing a case, especially one like this. If you think about it, most cases don't offer dual 140s up front, so I don't see why you're griping. =p
