Awesome Case!

Evan S., Newegg
10 February 2014
  • Summary: Specs: ASUS mATX Z77 Intel 3770k Diamond Radeon 6950 OCZ RevoDrive 3 x2 240gb
  • Pros: Excellent build quality, decent cooling. Looks nice, LEDs aren't super bright. Can fit larger video cards! Temps under load are around 35 C.
  • Cons: It was a bit expensive when I bought it. ATX power supply fitment is a bit tight. Solved with a Silverstone PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817256063

Good Case that needs a little adjustment...

Scott S., Newegg
19 December 2013
  • Summary: • Overall the case is a good buy and anyone looking to make their PC take up a smaller space or perhaps a HTPC, this is a good choice. It’s not a “Small” case, but it’s also not “Big” either.
  • Pros: • All Metal / Aluminum • Lightweight • Small Footprint • Decent Price • Good amount of Drive Space considering size • Plenty of Room for ATX Power Supply (Recommend: Modular)
  • Cons: • Although the Drive Guides are there and all the needed Screws and Hardware does come with it, they made it a little bit of a pin for mounting any 5 ¼ Drives (Mainly CD / DVD Drives). The one side is completely accessible, although you may want to put the drives in prior to mounting a Power Supply, but the one side of the drive (Towards the Front of the case), they really made a pain to get to. It’s not a deal breaker, but even the veteran PC builder (Which I have be...

Great Design for HTPC

Michael L., Newegg
7 August 2013
  • Summary: Make sure to get a modular psu or at least one without too many extra connections. With everything in there, the fit becomes a bit tight.
  • Pros: -Beautiful case inside and out. Looks polished. -Plenty of space if you build it all at once. -Fits a full size graphics card, fairly certain 2 would fit in, but I'd be afraid heat might become an issue.
  • Cons: -Polished nature shows scuffs and dust easily. (Not a problem if you're cleanly) -Removable MB tray becomes useless due to power and case cables.

OK case

mike k., Newegg
11 July 2013
  • Summary: This case is great looking and the sale price made it a great deal but for someone that likes to make frequent changes to their PC, I would not recommend it. As an example: if you wanted to swap your DVD burner for a Blu-ray burner, you would have to remove the side panel (six tiny screws), remove the PSU to get to the screws that hold the DVD/Blu-ray drives in place, remove any drive on the opposite side of the case (to get to the SATA power/data connections), then do...
  • Pros: High quality construction, beautiful looks.
  • Cons: Not the best design or fun to work on. The slide out MB tray is well made and a great idea but you still have to remove the side panels to work on it and they are fastened by six tiny screws per side. The screws were driven in and practically seized so screwdriver cam out was a problem. If you mangle the heads trying to get them out, good luck finding replacements. The internal cables (front panel, fan) are not long enough to attach to the MB while it is out of the ca...

Almost Great

Anonymous, Newegg
24 February 2013
  • Summary: I have two PC-Q08s for Mini-ITX Hackintosh builds. I wanted to build an NAS server and after researching MoBos, I decided to go with a SuperMicro in a Micro-ATX form factor. I bought the PC-V351B from NewEgg. As far as where I stand now, I love many things about this build. The system is rock solid and quieter than a whisper. In fact, I don't hear a thing and I've not yet had to even reboot it.
  • Pros: • mATX form factor • Elegant design • Super, super-quiet • Reasonably small footprint
  • Cons: • Should accommodate more internal hard drives considering its size.

Nice and squat

Tristan J., Newegg
6 November 2012
  • Pros: Classy and squat, really cool design. Great internal organization and plenty of fans.
  • Cons: A little larger than I had imagined, but that may have more to do with my imagination than the case itself.

Ok case great workmanship

Ian M., Newegg
30 March 2012
  • Summary: Its an Ok case , I wont get another despite its awsome workmanship due to the funky layout.
  • Pros: Very well made great craftsmanship just like all , full alluminum Lian Li cases.
  • Cons: UsB , Power button and drive exterior drive layouts. The layout of the drive bays , power button, USB ports, cover 3 different sides. If you plan to sit the case on top of an open table it is fine (the case is not as small as it may appear but it is not large either.) but if you put it under a desk or near a wall the side usb ports and side dive bays become a nusance.

A Case of Quality

Shaun K., Newegg
8 March 2012
  • Summary: Started building a computer for my CNC mill. Needed a small enclosure with minimal air vents (chips go everywhere). Only installed the mobo, but the quality seems great.
  • Pros: Sturdy aluminum construction. Simple design. Several fans to circulate air. Simple motherboard and drive installation. Fairly spacious.
  • Cons: Delicate screws. Need to remove several delicate screws to remove side panels.

Good looking, no ssd tray.

Anonymous, Newegg
18 November 2011
  • Pros: Unusual design, good finish, no sharp edges, quiet, nice to work with for a small case.
  • Cons: This is a better quality case, why doesn't Lian Li you a ssd tray like Thermaltake (and others) does on some of its fancier cases?
