Lian Li Industrial Co. Ltd, maker of high-end, all-aluminum computer chassis since 1983, today announces a new edition to their V series of PC cases with the release of their Mini Tower PC-V600F. Available in Black, Silver, and Red, as well as All Black (internal and external), this high-quality, all-aluminum computer case sports a grated front-panel design, three cooling fans (two with LED lighting), lots of build space with hot swappable capabilities, multiple USB 3.0 ports, and all the anti-vibration and tool-less features enthusiasts know are the markings of a Lian Li design. In short, another solid PC chassis from the Taiwan-based company.

For those curious, like I was, on pricing, Sundial Micro has the V600FB and V600FA for $215 before taxes and shipping. The V600FX (black exterior/interior) is going for an eye watering $255 before taxes and shipping. While this case is absolutely gorgeous and I love Lian Li, it's pretty damn steep for a micro-ATX case considering the V600's big brother, the V1020, is going for exactly the same price as the V600FB/A on Newegg.

Oh well, I'll probably end up buying this anyway. :p

This is pretty much the ideal case for the builds I normally do... Unfortunately, I could buy several close-to-ideal cases for the $200+ price tag. :shadedshu

Yeah but it's not THAT ridiculous. I mean there aren't many if any all true aluminum cases for under like $150ish right?

No, it really is THAT ridiculous. Always function over style in my book. Always.

Aluminum if function if the case is light and yet has nice dent and scratch resistance. Those side panels have a really nice memory flex to them. If you accidentally put a little force on one while it's off the case it won't bend like a steel panel will. Well it will bend of course but it seems to bounce right back into it's original flat shape again. Even after a little abuse they slide right back on like butter. I know it sounds mad but I've absolutely noticed that with Lian Li aluminum panels. They're very light yet very durable. Plus they can potentially run cooler can't they? It's all about function from the right point of view! The fact the raw aluminum grain looks so nice is a bonus!

I have no issue dropping $200 on a case IF it looks nice and will be durable and stand up to time. Most of these aluminum cases still look brand spanking new after years. The galvanized color will outlast any paint job and won't scratch off either. So I can buy a case like this and it will last through 2 or even 3 builds! Since it looks so nice I won't be sick of it after a year either. It's going to be around for a long time.

This is of course just my opinion but I find with these cases I'm happy with them for much longer. I don't end up changing the case just for the sake of changing the case to feel fresh. I've gone through a lot of cases and many times I didn't really "need" a new case, I just wanted a new case for the sake of having a new case. With these I don't get that urge to change it after a year or two or even after a new build. So that's mainly my personal problem I know... But it helps ME justify the price. I don't spend huge bucks on crazy overpowered GPU's or water cooling and stuff like that. For ME that's what I fell is a waste of money. So I can spend it on a nice case instead ;)

Way to actually READ my post and TRY to see another point of view! I mean 2/3rds of my post had nothing to do with how the case looked. I don't care about windows or how the parts inside look. I actually ditched an expensive window to go for a cleaner look. Buying RAM based on how it looks is completely different than the case. The case that has to sit in your living room or on your desk to be seen by everyone. How the case looks is important to me. How my RAM looks isn't.

I'm not saying you should like the case or that you need to spend $200 on a case. I'm just saying there are reasons I do. Like I said some people would think it's mad to spend $150 on a sound card or $300 on a water cooling kit. We all have different uses for our PC's and some people just like a nice quality feeling case. Steel cases with rough powder coated paint jobs feel cheap to me and I find them embarrassing. I don't want my PC to look like a piece of military equipment. I want it to look clean and cool. Yes how a case looks is important. Don't be ridiculous it's the only part you see! %90 of the users on here care how the case looks and if more said they didn't they're lying! Sure the quality, fit and feel are also important. That's one of the main reasons I like Lian Li cases. They have a really high quality feel to the fit that you don't get in cheaper cases. That's also important to me. Obviously for a super high end gamer or overclocker the air flow, wire management and space is all very important. You wouldn't buy a case that looks nice but lacks the other functions you need. But even most gamers care how the case looks as well.

Ppl, you have to understand that even though they might have slightly higher price, their cases are near to perfect. All aluminium case, very good build quality, well thought interior with some modularity. I have its smaller brother PC-V354 which is essentially the same thing just even smaller and with only 1 DVD drive bay.
Only downside really is the side panel that has 8 screws to open and might be annoying if you open case daily. And the top fan should be placed like on this case. But despite these two small issues, it's great and i love it. Next time i'll need a case i'll look at Lian Li first...

Ppl just don't seem to get it. It's about the fit and feel of high quality aluminum. It just feels so much nicer. It's light, strong, won't fade or scratch. I've seen 7 year old Lian Li's that still look like they're brand new. Heck I've wanted to nab them and continue using them but one thing shows the age. 80mm fans. Yeah. Not nice.

Well, i had a Thermaltake LANbox that was brand new but was using 92mm and 60mm fans.
Besides, these new Lian Li boxes all use 120 and 140mm fans. Even the smallest one has 1x 120mm in the front.

I agree with some of this - but 'won't scratch'? You have got to be joking right? Lian Li case exteriors are the cases most prone to scratches (even from things like edges of paper), fingerprints, smudges and all the rest. Usually a LL case looks crap after a few months, plus you're afraid to clean/dedust them, in case you scratch it with the cloth, or add some more grease marks.

I've had a silly number of Lian Li cases now, but have convinced myself 'no more', because they are simply form over function - the Apple of the PC world. Internally, they're dated in cable management (pretty much non existent), silver interiors (not necessarily a bad thing, but dated none-the-less), few tool-less features, and lack simple things like a CPU cooler cut out. Lian Li cases are great starting points for modding, but given this, are way too expensive for what they are.

This case falls into the same trap as pretty much all Lian Lis - weird internal design, no tool-less features, poor cooling (tower CPU coolers aren't going to work well with nowhere for the air to go, and if rotated to exhaust from the top, they'll be drawing hot air from the GPU), not painted internally (though I like the black edging), and I can guess the CPU cutout will be too small to be useful. Then, it's stupidly expensive - $250? That's going to equate to over £200 with VAT and the rest. £200? You could get an FT02 for that, or nearly two FT03s - which is a direct competitor.

hahahahahaha Both of you are mad! Lian Li is sturdy, yes, but prone to scratch yes. Just handle with care FFS! My 10 year old Lian Li tower is close to new, yes with some scratches, who cares.

The Lian Li builds are good, strong, unrivalled quality, but maybe.... boring design? I'd accept that. But if you are a naked metal fetischist you'll love it.

Regarding this case, I prefer the no rear fan design, just top fans (out) and front fans (in).

Confusing (thus revolting and mixing) the air inside a case is worse than every other aspect. There must be one input area and one output area. Just my 5 cent ;)

I like the boring design and the metal.
Corsair are doing something similar to Lian Li in the way of minimal frills design but they are also expensive.

lian li's build quality never fail to impress me, while majority of pc cases are build mostly with plastic they keep build it with all-aluminium. and that's why i think the price tag are a bit higher on the market.

but still, they need to put at least 2 exhaust fans. only 1 fan to exhaust air from 3 intake fan is not sufficient enough..
