Lian Li Announces EATX Supported Chassis with Front Placed PSU - PC-V750

Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd, today announces a brushed aluminum EATX supported chassis with a front placed PSU – PC-V750. With the power supply placed in the front, the PC-V750 can hold the hardware that enthusiasts desire while keeping a smaller footprint.

Shorter than most EATX supporting chassis, the 440mm (17.32”) tall PC-V750 can hold up to six 3.5” hard drives with hotswap capabilities in the HDD cage with one 2.5” at the bottom of the cage. Two more 2.5” drives can be installed if only four 3.5” drives are in the cage.

For users who don't want an optical drive, an additional 3.5” drive can be put in the 5.25” bay. Two more 3.5” or three more 2.5” hard drives can be placed on the floor on the chassis adding even more storage potential.

Under the HDD bay a standard ATX power supply can be comfortably placed. A pre-routed cable for the power supply wraps around behind the motherboard tray for plug access in the rear of the chassis. The PC-V750 provides ventilation slits underneath the PSU with a removable pull-out filter to help increase the life and performance of the power supply.

The PC-V750 has ten expansion slots for future upgradeability. Graphics cards up to 380mm in length can fit, and an arm helps to support longer cards.

Five well-placed fans keep your hardware at optimal operating temperatures. Two front 120mm fans blow cool air directly on the HDD rack. Dual top 120mm and one rear 120mm fans keep the cool air circulating throughout the case by pulling hot air out of the chassis. Additionally, the Lian Li PC-V750 supports water cooling with two rubber grommet holes.

On the front I/O panel there are two USB 3.0, one USB 2.0, one e-SATA and HD audio ports providing high connectivity capabilities.

Because details are important, this elegant brushed aluminum chassis has many features that DIY builders can appreciate such as easy-to-remove pop-off panels for simple installations and upgrades and sturdy aluminum feet with rubber bottoms to reduce vibrations.

The PC-V750 comes in three varieties: silver (PC-V750A), black (PC-V750B), and internal black with a side panel window (PC-V750WX).

When you said front mounted psu I thought it was going to look retarded with a cae sticking out the front, but this looks kinda cool.

Don't see a the point of this case compared to their other offerings. Lot's of cons, too few, if any pros.

I was puzzled at first, but the design is really nice.
The point of this is that you can fit EATX motherboards in a smaller case than was possible before....

Why do Lian Li press releases never mention when their products will be available for sale?

But if you are going EATX, a compact case isn't going to be what you are looking for, and cooling options are going to be very limited.

Aren't those front intakes just going to take in hot air from the PSU exhaust?

Very nice, another win for Lian-Li!

Front panel buttons/ports centered, black interior/window options, nice use of space, 10 slot, simple and clean exterior styling.

Nothing reminiscent of a transformer.
I like it.

Why can't they make a case designed with a real life scenario in mind?

I am sure there are a lot of people like me that use NAS and don't give a damn about the gazillion 3.5" bays all the cases seem to have nowadays.

For example I don't need more than two 3.5" bays (SSDs and HDD) but I could use two 5.25" bays for a reservoir/fan controller/whatever, a proper mounted PSU and space to mount a few rads or fans if I were to go on air.

You know, many cases are modular, especially premium ones like Lian Li... I'm pretty sure you can remove those bays and put a radiator on the front.

I think you're wrong. I'm sure there are people who would like to go EATX, but don't want a large case.
