    Lian Li teases a new chassis, finally one that is worth to look at if you ask me. The PC-V2130 is an upcoming 94l supertower case with huge storage capabilities and liquid cooling support. The case is...

    I'm sure their cases are great but boy are they ugly.

    I'm a Lian Li fan, but this case is not very eye appealing. They need to ditch that front ruffles door.

    I like some Lian Li cases and I have to admit that the P80/A76/A75 looks good. Even the now 6yrs old X2000 model looks better imo.

    We all know their motto is simplicity and metal etc but this model I just don't know. I comes down to personal taste of course. :p

    I like the fact that lian li cases are aluminium and have an amazing build quality but they should really grab few aesthetic and functionality tips from the competition because every other case from them seem retard to build a clean, powerful computer inside them.

    Ruffles belong on potato chips not cases. But I also love Lian-Li cases as my newest case is an micro ATX PC-C37 case for my HTPC.

    That thing looks like it would weigh a ton with all the hard drives and radiators and video cards and so on. No wonder they put wheels on it! At least they made them metal so they won't break under the load!

    The rest of the case has got me slightly baffled.

    That hard drive cage is just weird. Help me out here people, how are you supposed to access your hard drives if the drive cages don't appear to open to either the left no the right and you have a radiator blocking the front???

    Also, why is there a pointless metal column inconveniencing your access to the internals of the case? Why is that thing even there? And what is it doing there? And where did it come from? And who's idea was that?

    Thanks for the pics mmicrosysm.
    Well, I actually like the general idea of those drive trays in that they are completely removable, but if it's a HDD tray and it's not on drive rails then I don't want it in a tower case. As this case isn't even trying to use drive rails, this is where it and I part ways.
