Lian-Li Outs PC-V358 Micro-ATX Enclosure

Lian-Li has announced a new chassis: the PC-V358. This is a Micro-ATX enclosure intended to hold higher-end hardware, and it looks like it accomplishes that well.

The case can house graphics cards up to 330 mm long, ATX-size power supplies up to 200 mm long, CPU coolers up to 130 mm tall, and up to six 3.5" drives as well as two 2.5" drives. To top it off, it also supports a slim optical drive.

The case measures 324 x 286 x 390 mm, and weighs 5.5 kg.

With regards to cooling, the case does alright with that as well. It can house two front 120 mm fans, one rear exhaust fan, as well as two side-mounted 120 mm fans that can hold a 240 mm water cooling radiator.

Front I/O connectivity is achieved by a pair of USB 3.0 ports teamed up with a set of HD audio jacks.

Pricing is set at $179, and the case will be available in black and silver. U.S. availability is scheduled for the end of December.

    Freaking monster.

    Why no mini-DTX motherboards and cases or mini-ITX boards which at least can hold 32 GB of RAM?

    Also why is always the enthusiast chipset and processors one generation behind?

    Not bag but a little big for my taste. Silverstone SG10B is still the king when it comes to mATX case size to performance battle.

    The design is retarded. The fans should be installed in the top part of the case where the CPU and GPU are. In the lower part, all they do is make noise and cool hard drives.

    Check the HAF XB for a proper "stacker" case design.

    LianLi, ugh... when oh when are you going to 'really' design better looking cases.
  • edmoncu
    your cases remind me of the internal frame of an xbox/360 console.

    sigh...completely misses the point of ITX. that case is massive! I coulld fit 3 ATX board in there....

    Nice features, but large for a mATX case.
  • photonboy
    Not using a regular-sized DVD drive is a bad idea in a case this large. Choice is very poor for these drives, and there's plenty of arguably wasted space in this case anyway.

    I think the layout and space usage is very questionnable.

    holy crap that case is as big as that nerd!

    Nope, way too big and ugly!
