Lian Li PC-V1020 Full Tower Computer Case
There's been a lot of innovation in the computer case market in the last couple of years, and while there have been some real advances in features and utility, there's also been some stuff that's best described as "silly". As cases evolve to handle the demands of enthusiast systems, Lian Li has has been updating their traditional designs to meet the challenges posed by the competition (and your hot components). Today Benchmark Reviews looks at the Lian Li PC-V1020 full tower aluminum computer case.
Lian Li cases are not those you're likely to find at your local computer store. Aimed at the enthusiast for whom appearance is just as important as performance, they're much more expensive than most cases, and represent a tiny fraction of the overall computer case market. Lian Li is not averse to making specialized cases for even tinier segments of the market; for example, their PC-V2120 case is designed to handle HPTX form-factor motherboards. Right now there is exactly one of these motherboards on the market (EVGA's "SR-2"), so they're probably not going to sell very many PC-V2120s.
Most of their cases, though, are designed for more mainstream use. According to Lian Li, the PC-V1020 case we're reviewing "...has classic looks and the latest in tool-less design." It accommodates ATX and smaller motherboards.
