Lian Li PC-V1000L/B Special Edition Full-Tower Chassis Review

Lian Li PC-V1000L Special Edition Full-Tower Chassis




The front of the PC-V1000L is entirely made of mesh with tiny round holes, that is where the stealth bay cover and the front I/O panel isn't poking through. The front also curves to meet the top as the bottom where we first see that this chassis is on rollers.




The front I/O panel is topped with a large power button, followed below with the headphone and microphone 3.5mm jacks. The rest of the panel is taken up with four USB 3.0 ports, and Lian Li also offers a way to make one of them USB 2.0 for older or less equipped motherboards.




Looking from where the front rolls over and becomes the top, there is no transition, as it is all one sheet of aluminum. While the majority of the top is solid, there is a removable panel near the back to allow access to fan screws.




Not only is the cover a tight mesh, but there is a dust filter layer in here as well, and could impede on outgoing air flow. The plate under the filter offers holes for a pair of 120mm fans or a pair of 140mm fans, the choice is yours as to what to use.




Without a window to break this left side up at all, what you are left with is a very large expanse of black brushed aluminium to stare at. The panel is rounded at the corners to match the chassis design, and not only does the front have rollers, but the back offers a similar set as well.




Behind the PC-V1000L, we find the rear I/O and the exhaust fan next to it, which is also cut to fit an AIO externally. Below that, we find the eight expansion slots left natural in color, and room for the PSU at the bottom.




Zooming in much closer to the right side of the expansion slots, we find this small plaque designation this chassis, the Lian Li PC-V1000L to be a Special Edition chassis securely screwed into the aluminium.




One last thing before we move away from the back has to do with the rear rollers. So the chassis will not glide across an uneven floor, the large slide lever engages a lock on the rear set. To easily move it around, you slide it out as we have it here, and the rear axle frees up.




Matching the left side in its massiveness, the right side of the chassis offers a mirror image of the panel used on the other side. With the universal shape to both panels, they can also be interchangeable.




Under the chassis, we find a long dust filter running inside of rails. With the mechanism for the rear rollers blocking the back, this filter then slides out the front for cleaning.
