15 Case Power Tower Round-Up


  • Low weight
  • Interior layout
  • Plenty of room for hard drives and 5.25" drives
  • Edges filed down
  • Thumb screws and matching threads
  • Case on casters
  • PCI long cards can be installed


  • Requires long IDE cables
  • No dust filters
  • No power-on contact plug

Exemplary till the end. The Lian-Li PC-V1000 comes with well-illustrated instructions

In sum, this new interior arrangement should set a precedent for all other case makers - it's better than the usual ATX specification. Furthermore, it draws out the heat better and offers more space for drives and additional hardware. Its construction is exemplary - there is hardly a flaw to be found in the entire PC-V1000.

    I find it admirable that an article so old is still kept alive. Recently acquired one of this cases in excellent shape at a garage sale and wanted to know more about it.

    Thanks to this article and the great dedication of this website I have been educated. Kudos to you all.
