Liani Li announced the PC-V33 cube chassis with a flip-open canopy design, divided air compartments and drive-bay dampening system.
By design, the PC-V33 doesn't restrict PSU, GPU or main board choice by size or power consumption: it's designed to accommodate full-sized gaming in compact form-factor. Its cube styling allows you to install a full-sized computer inside and still have room for a 240 mm water cooling radiator to be mounted. The most unique feature is the canopy top that opens the cube for easy system building.
The pop-out side doors detach and re-attach with ease. The front and top are part of a canopy as a single fold of aluminum, which can be hinged open - providing access to the hardware exactly in the same manner as a test-bench. Dual 120mm case fans or up to a 240mm water-cooling radiator can fit internally on the front bracket.
The PC-V33 uses vents and internal compartments to manage heat and dust inside the case. The floor of the main board compartment acts as a barrier so CPU and GPU heat do not affect the PSU or drives. The included 120mm fan vents the top compartment through the newly designed rear vent. The bottom compartment filters air for the PSU that is vented right out the back. The drives have their own 120mm exhaust fan with the aggressive new vent hole pattern.
The PC-V33 uses a new drive cage with the same rubber dampening system found in Lian Li's Taipei 101 to eliminate vibrations. This cage can be half removed or fully removed for added flexibility. Horizontal mounting ensures air flow and correct alignment for long life.
The PC-V33 supports up to a full ATX motherboard in the top compartment with pre-installed standoffs that fit mini-ITX, mATX and ATX motherboards. It can house CPU coolers up to 190mm in height and VGA cards up to 330mm long. The bottom compartment can fit up to a 300mm long PSU and any combination of 4 3.5” or 2.5” drives on the anti vibration cage.
DIY enthusiasts can adjust the interior lighting through the optional RGB lighting kit complete with LED strips, cord clip, dimmer and controller. The rear mounted controller allows instant analog color selection. Guaranteed to fit and show off your custom interior.
The PC-V33 will be available in the USA in early September for the MSRP of PC-V33A/B $199, PC-V33WX $229.
