Lian Li has introduced two new premium desktop cases to its V series, the PC-V1020 and PC-V2120. Priced between $289 and $349 depending on the color (silver/black or red), the former is a mid-tower chassis with support for ATX and uATX motherboards, four 5.25-inch drives, seven 3.5-inch drives, one 2.5-inch drive, and eight expansion cards. It ships with two 140mm blue/red front intake fans, one 140mm top fan, and one 120mm rear fan. For $459 to $539, the full-tower PC-V2120 adds support HPTX motherboards, half a dozen more drives, and up to 11 expansion cards measuring a max of 335mm long. The overall cooling capacity is also increased with the ability to scatter twice as many fans throughout. Both have the same I/O, including four USB 3.0, one eSATA, and HD audio ports.
The new cases sit atop wheels for easy movement and have a slick removable motherboard tray that slips out the back of the case. The tray also has a hole for quick access to the underside of your CPU, and slits for cable management. There are plenty other extras you'd expect from luxury Lian Li cases.
