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.

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?

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.

interesting :D but it would affect the intake air although a little
