Inside the Lian Li Alpha 330

The bezel and the glass are easily removed from the front of the chassis, and we can see the gaps at the top and bottom of it for airflow. We have also removed the dust filter and set it to the left, but what is in the middle is a removable section of the chassis which makes mounting fans and or radiators much easier to accomplish.

Like in many other cases, Lian Li opts for the dual compartment layout. The op is wide open for the motherboard, GPU, and cooling, while the thin lower section is all blocked from view with the PSU cover.

Since there are no fans to discuss here, we would like to move your attention to the left. We see a steel cover over where the PSU cable would connect to the motherboard, or SATA cables too. To the right of the cover plate are two large holes with grommets, so that fan wires can be easily sent to the back of the chassis to be hidden.

The top of the chassis offers slots for ventilation, and the wider slots on either side are for mounting additional cooling. Remember, you can get three 120mm fans in here, or a pair of 140mm fans.

The motherboard tray is one solid expanse of steel from the front to the back. We see ten wire tie points, a decent sized opening for cooler access, and again, the openings to the right are mostly blocked with the Lian Li logo embossed cover.

The PSU cover offers a hole at the front so radiators can go through it, and there is also a universal pump mounting bracket included too. The opening near the motherboard tray has a grommet in it, but the slot near the open side allows PCI-e power cables to go up, without anything to impede them. Also, at the back, we see it is ventilated, and one could install the PSU either way.

As an avid overclocker, Chad is always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals.
