Lian Li PC-V65 Plus Aluminum Case (Modified)

Manufacturer: Lian Li
Supplied by: Performance PCs
Price: $339

By Dean Barker (4/11/2005)

Introduction

How many times have you drooled over a high end case and just started dreaming.  'If I had that case, I'd put in some 120mm fans and some extra duct work and replace all the chrome screws with black ones and get a color coordinated LCD thermal display and... and...'  We've all had that dream at one time or another.  Well apparently, so have the folks at Performance PCs.  They have basically taken a Lian Li PC-60, already a fantastic box, and pulled out all the stops with Lian Li accessories as well as lots of other mods to make one of, if not the most functional case on the planet.  The PC-V65 Plus is not for the faint at heart with a $339 price tag.  Can a case really be worth that much?  Read on and let's pour over this box and you be the judge.

A Look Around

The stylish yet comfortable look of the Lian Li PC-60 greets us initially.  Almost immediately thereafter you start to notice several things that make the PC-V65 Plus stand apart and above the rest of the family.  Beginning with the basics, is the "Plus" designation.  The current generation of Lian Li cases carrying a "Plus" after their names indicates a shift from the standard twin 80mm fans to a 120mm front intake.
