Having four hard drives and two optical drives, or more is a dilemma for many. Not only is it a cramp fit into most mid-towers, it's also a wiring nightmare and makes for a hot case. With that in mind, I went on a search for a new full tower. The Lian Li PC-V2100 silver full tower aluminum case stuck out for it's sheer size, let's see if it can deliver after we test it out.

 

 

 

Here are some specs:

  • 7x5.25", 12x3.5" internal(removable), 1 x 5.25" to 3.5" converter with a FDD bezel , 1x CD-ROM bezel
  • 12 cm bearing fans x 2
  • EXT ATX M/B (max size: 12"x13")
  • USB2.0 x 2, IEEE1394 x 1, MIC x 1, EAR x 1
  • 210x617x650 mm (W,H,D)
  • PCI Slot x 7
  • Aluminum door with lock
  • Special Sound insulated foam inside

The first thing I noticed is how massive this case is. My initial quick test to see how sturdy the unit was to just sit on it. I weigh a good 185 pounds (of pure muscle) and the chasis didn't twist or bend in anyway. Definitely a good start to things.

A few bags of screws, wheel covers, motherboard nipple tool and keys are included in the box.

The front of the PC-V2100 comes equipped with a swing out door. It is secured by a lock if you feel the need to protect your investment.

As with most modern cases, there are front extension ports for USB2, Firewire and audio.

I have always liked large cases with casters. It makes the case easier to maneuver around. However, it is a bit strange that the wheel lock lever is at the rear of the case. So if you have this against a wall, it might be a bit tough to reach. Also be aware, that the wheels themselves have this layer of grease right out of the box. Be careful if you are moving this across a clean white floor, make sure to wipe it down first.

The door is secured by a ball catch located on the bottom and the top.
