Lian Li launches PC-V352 HTPC case
Aluminum case manufacturer Lian Li is known for making great quality parts, but after some lackluster initial HTPC chassis sales, I wouldn’t have blamed them for leaving. However, this is a neat looking design, and the $169 price tag is fairly in line with everything else. Although…why black and Red?
The new PC-V352 is made out of aluminium and has 280x275x400mm (WXHxD) dimensions. It weighs 4.4kg and despite its small size, the guys from Lian Li managed to squeeze in two external 5.25-inch bays, three 3.5-inch internal bays, a full I/O panel with two USB 3.0 ports, audio jacks, eSATA and even an SD card reader.
The case also features a tool-less design, a removable motherboard tray and is cooled by a total of three fans. The two 120mm on the front will provide a decent amount of fresh air while a back placed 80mm will get rid of the heat pretty good.
