The company Lian Li announced the launch of a new computer case — PC-V650. New made is entirely made of aluminum and is designed to fit motherboard ATX and Micro-ATX, but because of non-standard side location of the power supply, it is lower than most peers.
Power supply (maximum length is limited to 230 mm) is mounted in the lower right side of the case — exactly opposite of expansion cards. In terms of composition and temperature regime the model is controversial, but it allows reducing the height. On the other hand, the case has turned out quite wide. In general, new dimensions can be expressed by the formula 427 x 251 x 360 mm, provided with seven slots for expansion cards.
Lian Li PC-V650 allows setting a standard size 5.25 ODD and eleven drives: seven 3.5-inch and four 2.5 inch. Bottom basket for hard drive is made removable: if to take it out, there is the possibility to use graphic card up to 370 mm. Regarding the maximum height of CPU cooler, it is 120 mm.
Along with chassis the package includes two fans, one 140mm mounted on the top panel, the other 120 mm — at the top of the back side. If necessary, two fans with a diameter of 140 mm can be set on the front side, there is a possibility to install water cooling system — suitable openings are provided on the rear panel.
The front wall of the chassis is equipped with a single port USB 3.0 interface and two USB 2.0, two 3.5-mm jack for connecting a microphone and headphone jacks, as well as a card reader that operates with the cards MS, SD, MMC, and microSD.
Sales of Lian-Li PC-V650 in the European market will start in September, the chassis can be purchased for 195 euros.
