Calling all Lian Li PC-V2100 PLUS II owners

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone. I am buying this case and I wanted to know who has one. I need to ask a question.

Why is a fan in front of the HDD cages if there is no intake in the front of the case?

It could be like a Soldam. Where the front fans intake air through gaps in the side panels....

Ummm, it's in front of the HDD cages so I can cool the hard drives...
Where else would you put the front case fan?

There's no grill in front of the fan, so technically the fan isn't getting fresh air.

I have the V2000, but if you look carefully in this picture of the V2100...



...you can see what appears to be slots/openings in the bottom side of the case, right beneath and in front of the fan. My guess is it sucks in cool air from the floor...

I noticed those vents. I was just curious. So now I can remove the fan. I was actually planning on building a WC system with a grill in between the set of wheels and another one on the top like the image above. Gonna store the HDD in the upper chamber.
