Lian-Li Officially Announces PC-V360 Micro-ATX Case

While we may have seen Lian-Li's PC-V360 Micro-ATX enclosure before, it is not until now that it has been formally announced. The enclosure is a Micro-ATX with one particularly innovative feature: the possibility of mounting a 240 mm water cooling radiator right above the motherboard.

The radiator mount is also attached to a swivel hinge, meaning that the radiator can be easily moved aside for easy access and maintenance.

The enclosure itself, beyond the radiator mount, is fairly unremarkable. It features room for graphics cards up to 310 mm long, PSUs up to 280 mm long, and can house up to five 3.5" drives alongside three 2.5" drives.

Cooling is achieved by a 140 mm front intake fan as well as a 120 mm top exhaust fan. It is more difficult to mount a fan in the rear of the chassis due to the space taken up by the radiator bracket. Front I/O connectivity is handled by the standard set of two USB 3.0 ports as well as a pair of HD audio ports.

The case is already available through select retailers and has an MSRP of $140.

    Not very micro. Looks about the same size as any new big box retail PC.

    It's Micro-ATX, a motherboard formfactor.

    Nice case. Is it $140 because it is a Lian Li? I have never owned one and have a hard time seeing why such a small case would drive such a high price point, especially with lower end brands really stepping up their game in the past year.

    I prefer the PSU on the bottom.

    The point of mATX is to be smaller than ATX. That is what he us pointing out.

    Their entire case is made of aluminium, the edges are rounded, the fit and finish is arguably the best in the industry... and their case layouts always seem to have something wrong with them ever since 80mm fans got replaced by 120mm for standard case fans.
