Lian Li PC-V1000b Plus

Internal Appearance & Accessories

Internal Appearance

The inside of Lian Li cases has always been another area where they separate themselves from a vast majority of the market. This particular case makes use of a BTX-style upside down motherboard mounting method. This, while offering improved cooling for the CPU area, does have the disadvantage of both making watercooling difficult and making life a lot warmer for graphics cards residing at the top of the case. Hopefully the airy design of the case will negate these issues.

Case Interior

Case Internals Without Extras

The well ventilated and directly cooled hard drive racks can hold up to a total of 6 hard disk drives with their easy clip-in mounting system.

HDD mounting

The back of the case features 7 PCI expansion slots and the usual i/o plate and fan. Just, funnily enough, upside down.

PCI Expansion Slots

All the most used screws are thankfully thumb screws to help speed things up a bit and for places tricky to get a screwdriver.

The small things inside a case like this really make a difference, for example I cant find a single sharp edge anywhere, everything is rolled, smoothed or fitted with plastic trim

Cable Hole Edging

Inside the case we find several little accessories. Along with 3 rather large bags of screws, cable ties and tidies and a motherboard spacer screwdriver, the case comes with a sliding extractor fan, a scoop for directing cool air onto the CPU and a guard to go over the PSU fan once it is installed which should divert hot air to the side - which would be useful if using a rear mounted radiator or placing the case in a confined space where hot air could re-enter through the intake fan above the PSU)
