Lian Li V1010 Aluminium PC Case

Packaging & Up Close

Packaging & Up Close

A luxurious case certainly wouldn't be great if it arrived bent or scratched. Lian-Li have taken care with packaging in the past, so we were confident of its safe arrival.

Although the box came a bit battered, it didn't look like it would affect the case inside. The box also looks quite nice, with a big image of the case on the front and a list of features down the right hand side.

As you can see, Lian-Li have followed the trend of many other manufacturers by wedging the case in-between two foam pieces and placing it inside a plastic bag. This ensures a bit of 'air space' on either side of the case to absorb shocks and the plastic bag stops scratches and other irritating marks.

As you can see, the v1010 is a very clean and professional looking case. The front uses a lot of meshed panelling to encourage airflow, and the side features no window whatsoever. Round the back we have the PSU mount at the bottom and a 120mm fan up top. On the bottom we have 2 sets of wheels for moving the case around. A little lever at the back enables you to lock them for when the case is stationary.

The main external features of the v1010 are shown above. The power and reset buttons are both of extremely high quality and are very nice to use. Then on the back of the case we have a small switch, which is a fan controller for the pre-installed fans. Then we have 2 holes up top; these plugs can be unscrewed to allow water cooling tubes to be passed through. Finally we have the front panel ports (which are actually up top) that hide behind a nice little flap.

Always a pleasure to see some Lian Li glamour shots.

I also love that Lian Li always have a "little and large" thing going on, theres always a smaller version of all their super towers. V1010 to the V2010, A17 to A77, A10 to A71.

Nice review. I do like Lian Li cases.. They seem to have clean simple lines, shame they are up the top end of the price bracket. If the devil is reading this: I'm prepared to give you the first born child from the next 10 generations of my family if you get me one
