Lian Li goes wide with the latest chassis, where the aluminum PC-V650 has a side-mounted power supply. Lian Li grades the new case a minitower and to house motherboards of ATX format it is a relatively compact box.
Lian Li PC-V650 is made entirely from aluminum – as always from Lian-Li. Also clean-cut design is recognisable from other similar models and once again it is a cube format that is presented. Unlike other cube chassis on the market, PC-V650 can hold ATX motherboards and a big power supply up to 230mm deep.
To solve this Lian Li has moved the power supply to the side of the case and placed it above the expansion slots, which means it won’t limit you in your choice of processor cooler with 120 millimeter of free height available. The cassis measures 251 x 360 x 427 millimeter (BxHxD) and weighs 5 kilo. Despite the narrow measurements it has room for four fans – two 140 millimeter fans in the front, one 140 millimeter fan in the roof and a single 120 millimeter fan on the back.
For storage there is room for seven 3.5″ harddrives (2 x hot swap) and four 2.5″ harddrives. We also find an integrated card reader on the front, together with three USB ports (one being USB 3.0) and ports for headphones and microphone.
Lian Li PC-V650 will come in two colors, black or silver, and cost around 200€.
