With mini-ITX systems becoming more and more powerful and mini-ATX motherboards offering the same features as full ATX boards it is hard to decide what type of system to build. At the same time if you are going to build one of these smaller systems there really are not that many cases that offer all the features you expect from a normal PC case. Well Lian Li noticed this and came out with the PC-V352. A small cube style case that packs in a lot of features and has all of the quality you expect from Lian Li. Let’s check it out and see if it is perfect for your next small system build.

The PC-V352 comes in Lian Li’s normal packaging. On the front there is a picture of the PC-V352 and a listing of some of the features. On the side there is a listing of specifications. The packaging also let’s us know this is the silver or “A” version of the case. The “B” version is the black version and the “R” version is the red version.
Opening the box up the case inside is nicely protected by 2 large pieces of Styrofoam and a plastic bag.
