Lian-Li announces the release of two modular, brushed aluminum chassis with slide off side panels: PC-V359 and PC-Q36. The Micro-ATX PC-V359 and Mini-ITX PC-Q36 feature a see-through top panel and front window, making builds easily visible from the top and the front.
Both chassis are almost entirely modular – the top panel can be removed with the twist of four thumbscrews, and the side panels can be slid off, providing total access to interior hardware in a matter of seconds. Furthermore, after removing the two thumb screws from the 3.5" cage, the cage itself, as well as the entire front panel, can be removed. The back panel can also be removed after taking out two screws.
The PC-V359 and PC-Q36 can utilize air, water, and passive cooling to keep builds running at a comfortable temperature. Ventilation with filters are located at the top of both side panels. One side can support a 240mm radiator, while the other side ventilates the GPU.
The PC-V359 supports VGA cards up to 320mm (12.6") in length and CPU coolers up to 160mm (6.3") in height. The PC-Q36 supports VGA cards up to 300mm (11.8") in length and CPU coolers up to 170mm (6.7") height. Both chassis have a slim optical bay located on the bottom of the front panel. The I/O panel is located on the front right of both chassis. Connectivity includes two USB 3.0 ports and HD audio connections.
The PC-V359 and PC-Q36 will be available in the US now for the suggested retail prices of USD 179 and USD 149 respectively.
