    Lian Li previewed its next flagship ATX full-tower chassis, the PC-V2130. The latest aluminium monstrosity from Lian Li features a ridged and brushed aluminium front door, and anti-acoustic padded panels all around. It's wheeled at the base. Measuring 237 mm x 640 mm x 625 mm (WxHxD), and weighing in at 9.8 kg, the case comes in three trims - all silvery aluminium, black aluminium exteriors with silvery aluminium interiors; and black aluminium exteriors with black aluminium interiors. The motherboard tray can seat XL-ATX, apart from standard ATX form-factors. It offers 10 expansion slot bays.

    Storage areas of the PC-V2130 includes five 5.25-inch drive bays, eight 3.5-inch bays spread across individual trays;four 2.5-inch bays along the back side of the cage, and three 3.5-inch bays behind the motherboard tray. Ventilation includes two 140 mm front intakes, two 140 mm top exhausts, a 140 mm bottom intake, and a 120 mm rear exhaust. Front panel connectivity includes four USB 3.0 ports (standard headers), an eSATA port, and HD audio jacks. The case offers room for graphics cards as long as 36 cm (up to 48 cm if you pull out the drive trays), PSUs as long as 20 cm, and CPU coolers as tall as 18 cm. Lian Li didn't reveal pricing or availability details.

    The case overall strikes a lot of positive notes for me - quad USB 3.0 (about damn time), 280mm rad support - but I'm betting that as usual, Lian Li will charge an obscene and unjustifiable amount for it.

    That tray doesn't look very slidey-outy to me - in fact it looks like it's riveted to the back of the case...

    I think that should read "and three 3.5-inch/2.5-inch bays behind the motherboard tray", because if you look at the 2nd and 3rd images you can see 2 sets of 4 holes.

    In fact, looking at the 2nd image, it appears you can mount drives on the FRONT of the motherboard tray as well (there is enough space between the PSU and the tray). Not sure why you'd want to do this, but interesting nonetheless.

    Thanks, I had tabs of V2120 and V2130 open at the same time, and mixed them up.

    So, the 2120 has the slide-out MB tray, the 2130 does not.

    The 2120 looks better to me...
