Lian Li Announces Their Smallest ATX Motherboard Supported Chassis – PC-V700

 

5 April 2012, Keelung, Taiwan – Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd, the award-winning aluminum computer chassis manufacturer, today announces their smallest chassis supporting a ATX motherboard – PC-V700. This brushed aluminum chassis allows PC builders to get the most out of every available space with its efficient and flexible design.

The PC-V700 with dimensions of 8.26” (W) x 15.74” (H) x 19.52” (D) (210 x 400 x 496mm) gives users several options for installing their hardware in a space saving form. The hotswappable HDD cage below the 5.25” drive bay at the top of the chassis holds up to four 3.5” hard drives. The removable SSD rack that can be placed to hang underneath the 3.5” HDD bay allows users to install two 2.5” hard drives. For users that prefer longer VGA cards, when this 2.5” SSD rack is removed graphics cards up to 17.32” (440mm) in length can be installed.

In order to give more room for future expandability, the PSU is placed in the front of the chassis under the HDD bays. The PC-V700 provides ventilation slits underneath the PSU with a removable pull-out filter to help increase the life and performance of your power supply.

Two additional 3.5” HDDs can be screwed into the floor of the PC-V700 to give even more storage potential for this compact chassis without getting in the way of other hardware.

The Lian Li PC-V700 offers effective thermal cooling with its four well-placed fans. The front 140mm fan with the easy-to-remove twist motion air filter blows cool air directly on the 3.5” hotswappable HDD rack. The dual top and rear 120mm fans keep the cool air circulating throughout the case by pulling hot air out of the chassis.

Providing high connectivity capabilities, the PC-V700 has three USB 3.0, one e-SATA, and HD ports on the front panel.

The PC-V700 comes in three varieties – black (PC-V700B), silver (PC-V700A), and internal black with a side panel window (PC-V700WX).

Console format from Valve?

I have been saying for years that the next evolution of PC gaming would be setting up a uniform gaming platform for people to be able to have a lower buy in cost while still getting the premium experience that a PC can offer over console. This is because there are two things that consoles always have over PC's, a much lower buy in cost and a uniform platform for developers to create for. Its not that PC gaming NEEDS ether of those options to be popular, PC gaming just needs both of those options to overtake the popularity of console gaming. What am I getting at today in my early morning rants? Well over at the Verge they have a nice writeup on a rumored "Steam Box" that Valve may be shopping around. The most interesting part is they are looking to be similar to Android with an open gaming universe. That means that we could see multiple devices from different manufactures built on Valves specifications.
