Today Lian Li unveiled a new brushed aluminum cubed PC chassis designed for mATX motherboards that features the unique ability to flip open for easy access to internal components. The front hinge design of the PC-V358 is said to allow for ample access to core components of the PC making for a cube style PC that is much easier to work on than traditional small form factor cases.
The PC-V358 features support for 240mm radiators from custom liquid cooling kits or All-in-One kits. The radiator can be mounted on a swing-open bracket which is secured by thumb screws, making for an effortless install of advanced cooling solutions. Two front 120mm fans and a rear 120mm fan handle all of the passive cooling duties by providing ample airflow to all components.
Storage capacity is capped at six 3.5-inch hard drives, and two 2.5-inch SSDs. Alternatively up to 8 2.5-inch drives can be installed with the use of adapters. The PC-V358 has room for a single slim optical drive as well. VGA cards up to 330mm long and PSU's up to 200mm long fit inside, and for those not into liquid cooling, a 130mm tall CPU cooler will fit as well. The new Lian Li PC-V358 will retail for $179 at Newegg.com at the end of this month.
