Lian Li's PC-V750 Chassis Supports Big Size Motherboards, Leaves a Small Footprint

Paul Lilly

"Short" and "Full Tower" aren't a pair of descriptors that typically go together, but then again, Lian Li claims its new PC-V750 computer case isn't your typical enclosure. The PC-V750 is a "short full tower," as Lian Li describes it, and if you build a system inside it, the power supply goes in front, a design decision that allows it to "hold the hardware that enthusiasts desire while keeping a smaller footprint."

The PC-V750 measures 9.05 inches (W) by 17.32 inches (H) by 23.07 inches (D) and is constructed of brushed aluminum. Despite its short stature, Lian Li says you can cram an E-ATX size motherboard in the PC-750 and proceed to load it up with hardware, including up to six 3.5-inch drives with hotswap capabilities and a single 2.5-inch drive, or up to two more 2.5-inch drives if only four 3.5-inch drives are in the cage.

There's a place for the power supply beneath the storage bay with ventilation slits and a removable filter. Cable cutouts run along the bottom of the motherboard tray to route wires up and behind. There are two 120mm fans up front, another two on top, and one more in the rear. Rounding out the feature-set are two USB 3.0 ports, a single USB 2.0 port, eSATA, and HD audio ports on the front of the case.

Lian Li didn't say how much the PC-V750 costs or when it will ship.
