Lian-Li has announced its new high-end chassis: the PC-V2130. This chassis is, like most cases from Lian-Li, fully made out of aluminum. The case is able to house a lot of hardware, and thus is rather big. It measures 237 x 640 x 625 mm and weighs a hefty 9.8 kg.
The PC-V2130 has room for up to XL-ATX size motherboards, five optical drives, eleven 3.5" drives (three of which are behind the motherboard tray) as well as up to four 2.5" drives. The slots behind the motherboard also support 2.5" drives. Regarding expansion, the case has a total of ten expansion slots, so installing four graphics cards is really not a problem. Graphics cards can be up to 360 mm long, though removal of the hard drive tray will make room for graphics cards up to 480 mm long. CPU coolers can tower up to 180 mm.
Front I/O connectivity is dealt with by an impressive four USB 3.0 ports along with an eSATA port and the standard pair of HD audio jacks.
With respect to cooling, the case is capable of housing up to six 140 mm fans along with a single 120 mm fan as exhaust. The top, bottom, and front of the case each are capable of carrying two 140 mm fans.
No word on pricing yet, though this is likely to be a very pricy case.
