Chassis of Full-Tower form-factor usually have solid framework due to the layout scheme and the necessity to enclose a lot of components. Developers from Lian Li company have totally demolished the current tendencies and announced the release of their PC-V750 Full-Tower model with the front-end PSU localization. This allowed the designers to dramatically decrement the size of the chassis without sacrificing its capacity and general specifications. The compact size of the chassis is considered to be a kind of ‘revolution’ in the market, since it is compatible not only with ATX and microATX motherboards, but also with Extended-ATX boards.
Lian Li PC-V750 casing is made of aluminum and approximates 7.35 kg in weight. Its dimensions provide for the installation of massive CPU-coolers (up to 170 mm in height), up to ten expansion cards, including 380 mm 3D cards. The chassis is equipped with five fans of 120 mm each: the two fans are located on the front plate, the other two – on the top plate, while the last one – on the rear plate. In addition, the efficient framework allows installing the water cooling system thanks to the integrated apertures with rubber slugs on the rear plate.
PC-V750 is characterized by the availability of a single 5.25 inch external bay, and is able to accommodate nine 3.5 inch drives or six 2.5 inch drives.
Chassis PC-V750 is known to come in three colors: silver, black and black with the integrated side window. The clipboard accommodates a standard set of interfaces: a couple of USB 3.0 ports, one USB 2.0 port, one eSATA port, and sound subsystem plugs. PSU is localized under the HDD bay in the front-end part of the casing. It goes along the removable filter and ventilation apertures.
All the above mentioned characteristics allow the developers (as well as hardware specialists) speak about a new generation of Full-Tower chassis: compact size Full-Tower products with enormous capacity and engaging design.
