Is anyone ordering the Lian Li PC-V750 from Newegg? - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Price is certainly up there, but I'm still considering one for my new build. There really isn't anything with a comparable layout or features that costs any less.

How do you figure?

It looks like it will be effective at cooling components. Maybe not quite so effective as the PC-90, but few are.

My existing Supermicro case, which is 7" wide, almost accommodates my 158mm Noctua NH-U12P SE2 CPU cooler. If only it were a 7.25" case. I'm curios why the Lian-Li PC-V750WX, at 11.61" wide, only accommodates a CPU cooler that is 170mm tall. With 4+ extra inches over the Supermicro case, it should accommodate any CPU cooler.

Also, this case seems to NOT include a power supply. Will it take any standard power supply, or must one install a Lian Li power supply?

Thanks,

M.

It supports any power supply up to 210mm in length, you get an adapter cable included with the case that plugs into your psu and go's to the rear of the case.Then you plug your psu lead from the mains to the rear of the case.

This fits XL-ATX and even SR2/SRX boards in it, in case that wasn't clear.

As the owner of the V700, I can attest that the airflow pattern is pretty bad. You have to get creative with your components to make sure you're not continually recycling hot air.

Otherwise, the actual design itself is pretty ingenious. You can fit something like 10 or 11 3.5" HDD's with two full sized video cards, room to spare. This is in a case that is a lower profile than most full towers, and about the same size as the 600T.

To really get the most out of this case, I think it would require some cutting. Even with a EATX board in there, you could fit a 240mm rad on the bottom, 360mm rad on the top, and a 240mm rad on the front. Lots of room left for pump and res to go somewhere, could even mount it on the motherboard tray.

Even if they didn't nail thermal performance and airflow, I'm truly glad there is a case manufacturer out there (Silverstone too) that is willing to step outside of the standard case design to try and put new ideas out there. That alone gives me respect for the thing.

On the price front, this is more than the new Little Devil PC-V7. It doesn't even hold a candle to that case.

Dacipher,

If you are getting into the $380 to $450 range, CaseLabs makes much more sense biggrin.gif (Unless you're waiting for a sale.)

Although, you would have to get the extra parts for the Case Labs possibly.

Lian Li's are nice, but at full price for that V-Series, nothing in the Lian Li lineup comes close to a CaseLabs case.

Just a suggestion... wink.gif I'm blown away by my M8 and have never had any case close in quality. (I've had Silverstones and LL as well)

Little Devil V7 is coming in at just under $400. That's the case to beat right now, IMO.

I bought this case from Newegg and I'm returning it. The hot swap bays are inside the case; they are not externally accessible. Also, they do not allow the use of standard hot swap trays (with the release arms), so you have to loosen some thumbscrews that hold a gate, raise the gate and then pull the drives. This is fine so long as you are not regularly cycling the drives, which is what I do.

Note also that the front of the case only allows for a single 5 1/4 drive (which would likely be an optical drive). No room for anything else.

So it does fit HTPX boards?

I bought one of these quirky monsters. I have too much money and time on my hands and get bored easily.

The air flow pattern IS strange....

I made some pics of both the stock airflow (ie, top fans as exhaust, cooler CPU but louder), and a modfied test as top fans as intakes (warmer CPU but quieter). Must be something about the top fans "liking" being sucked through the top case holes rather than blowing against them.


Note that my little airflow indicators for the power supply in my pics is wrong. The PSU sucks cool air from the bottom, and blows it OUT the front of the case (not into the case, as I indicated).

Recently, I added a fairly strong but quiet 140MM fan in the bottom intake slot, which seems to mostly hit the GPU intake fan. In my build, this does not matter, as the Titan runs quiet and cool anyway. Note, the fan in the pic (the very strange Thermalight TY-150) is not the fan I currently have mounted. Updated pics to come later (traveling now).

My last tinker with this build will be to see if I can fit the 280mm Kraken X60 in the top 2 x 140 mm slots, and totally block off the rear 120mm exhaust fan.

Edited to include pics (wrong airflow for PSU exhaust):

Stock Air:


Mod Air:


Overall thoughts:

*A VERY fun build for an e-ATX mobo (Rampage II in pics and Rampage III current, again new pics to follow).
*Would love to try a real big mobo, but I dont see myself every buying X-atx etc. My next build will be an Ivy-E.
*Can fit LOTS of HD's. I have 7 in there. 2 x SSDs mounted BEHIND mobo (thats why you cant see them). 2 x V-Raptors, 2 X Hitach 4GBs, and 1 x WD 4 TB Red (Enterprise) in the front HD rack.
*Bottom mounted HD rack is not needed unless you need more than these 7 drives + Optical Drive. Again 2 x SSDs fit easily behind the mobo tray and dont get hot anyway. They fit snugly against the foam insulated padding that I installed on the side panels and are held in place by 1 screw each.
*All 5 stock fans are low flow BUT very quiet. In my airflow pics, there is no way the "blue" cool air from the 2 x front intake fans would be anything less than weak and total turbulence after passing over the front HDs.
*Case looks nice buttoned up. (pics to follow)
*Quite heavy when full.
*Lots of room compared to my previous Lian Li PC8F. But still tight to work on compared to a Cosmos or similar. But easy to hide nicely. Takes up not much more room than my mid tower PC-8F did. Not at all obnoxious looking like a full gaming tower.

Note:

these pics are not 100% current to my rig in the sig.

The mobo in pics is Rampage II Extreme, current is Rampage III.
I also dropped the hardware raid card in the pic and run all 7 HDs of the Rampage IIIs mobo controller now.
Also added a Creative Zx-R Sound card and new bottom intake fan.
New pics to follow when I get home next week.
Kraken x60 on order. HOPE it fits in the top, otherwise it's going on Ebay. Impossible to return stuff in Germany.
