Closer Look: Interior Features

The interior of a case is where the beauty and functionality meet and the Lian Li PC-V750WX meets both requirements easily with its dark aluminum interior and tool-less features.

When the user first opens the PC-V750WX they are greeted with the beautiful black interior of the PC-V750WX. Lian Li included a bar that allows enthusiasts to attach braces to the case to help support heavy video cards. Behind that is the motherboard tray which has all of the standoffs needed to install everything from E-ATX all the way down to M-ATX allowing users to continue using the PC-V750WX even as their needs evolve.

Lian Li opted build the PC-V750WX in such a way that every aspect of the case can be dealt with without using tools. This includes the sides of PC-V750WX whose locking mechanisms are visible in this photo; to remove the sides all a user must do is apply enough force to pop each socket out of the locking mechanisms around the edge of the case. Inside of the PC-V750WX Lian Li uses thumbscrews to attach the covers for the unused expansions slots. Above the ten expansion slots is a 120mm fan with a model number of LI121225SL-4, it is a dual bearing design rated for [email protected] Lian Lian Li also used two of these up front as intake fans.

From the rear, the power cable that snakes it way from the back all the way to the power supply up front is visible. This design is what allowed Lian Li to keep the PC-V750WX so small but it can make building inside of the PC-V750WX a little bit more difficult than a more conventional design. Lian Li included a very large opening to allow enthusiasts to work on their CPU cooler back plates without removing the entire motherboard. Bundled up towards the front are all of the connections that the Lian Li PC-V750WX's front panel.

Could you please use some gloves or at least wipe off your fingerprints before you take pictures of an all aluminum case next time?

lol.. I'd have said clean em off yourself! At any rate.. the only thing I dislike is where the hell is the removable mb tray. At these prices it should be standard. Come on Lian-Li!

It seems it has become very rare to see a removable tray. Which is so very sad.

As anyone who has been around the Anodized Lian Li Aluminum knows that Finger prints are common. on the other hand.. This case is a Winner in my Opinion.. Based loosely on the PC-05 Case the Design is Low and long.. Which is great for a small footprint in the office while having enough components to choke a IT Tech. Great Job with the Airflow as well.. This is a great Stand alone case as well as an awesome donor for a fantastically dramatic Mod.. Two Thumbs up Lian Li.. you are finally getting the hang of this case stuff.

the lian li pc-v750wx is a beautiful case . the price will drop below 300 dollars within a year or less . i have a lian li lancool pc-k9wx which is about the same size as the pc-v750wx and is all black aluminum inside and out and has a window on the left side . the lancool pc-k9wx which i think is still for sale is just $79.99 . it looks great like all lian li products . the pc-v750wx has more interior room and more features but i do not need all those features anyway . the lancool pc-k9wx has three bays on top and i replaced the bays with another fan . i use outboard disc writers anyway . lian li and lancool are the best cases made except maybe corsair which are similar in appearance . corsair just released a gargantuan 900d for people with $15000 dollars worth of parts to fill it up . i like my $79.99 lancool pc-k9wx just fine and have no need for a larger or more expensive case .

I've had my Lian-Li PC-65B since 2006 and love it. Lian-Li makes fantastic cases and once you have one, odds are good you won't ever need another. I like the rounded edges and that they relocated the USB ports to a spot that has better access. Agreeing with the "cons" section...only 1 5.25" bay is ridiculous. With the amount of extras that some folk use (me included), only having 1 bay is lacking. 5 hard drive bays would be enough, remove the one at the top and add a second 5.25" bay at the least. Someone else mentioned the non-removable MB tray, unless you are constantly swapping boards or other hardware, I don't see it as an issue. I leave mine in when I'm swapping things out because my cable management is so tight and awesome that I have to disconnect everything completely to remove it and it's just easier to leave it in.

All in all, personally, for the price, I can't see "upgrading" my current Lian-Li PC-65B at this time. Very nice looking case for someone looking for an all alluminum case.

"Cons:

- No filters on front intake fans"

There ARE filters on front intake fans. However, the others fans are not filtered.
