Lian Li Alpha 330 Mid-Tower Chassis
The tempered glass that runs down the face of the Alpha 330 is put inside of a plastic bezel, which allows the glass to be far enough away for large holes at the top and bottom to provide airflow into the chassis. Contrasting the white of the case, the glass has its edges painted black, and it also hides the frame behind it.
The front I/O panel is built into the top of the chassis and is found just behind the air gap. In the panel, we see the power button on the left and a pair of USB 3.0 ports following it. Next, we run into the HD Audio jacks and at the right end of it all, there is a USB 3.1 Type-C port.
The top of the chassis is made of steel, it is level with the side panels of the chassis, and the vast majority of it is covered with a black plastic dust filter. The filter is inset, so it is level with the steel, and has magnetic strips on the underside to keep it attached to the chassis.
From the outside, all we see on the left side is a large tempered glass panel, four thumbscrews holding it in place, and chunky white feet at the bottom. Again, like with the front, the edges of the glass are painted to obstruct the view of the frame.
The back of the Alpha 330 shows some height at the top, before running into the rear I/O and exhaust fan location. Under them, there are expansion slots in an 8+2 configuration for potential GPU mounting options. The bottom of the chassis is used for the PSU, and we notice the dust filter under the chassis does not come out the back.
The right side of the chassis is similar to the left, in that there is another full-length tempered glass panel in play. This time, while thin areas are painted black at the top and on the sides, the bottom has a much taller section painted, as to eliminate a view behind the PSU cover.
The bottom of the chassis offers a view of the feet which are as wide as the chassis, and both the front and back has a pair of rubber pads applied for grip. What we realized from here, is that the long dust filter that covers the entire length of the chassis pulls out through the left side of the case, which simplifies cleaning it for the end-user.
