Lian Li Launches HTPC PC-V353, Mini-Tower PC-Q25

Lian Li Industrial released two new PC cases: HTPC PC-V353 and Mini-Tower PC-Q25. A new addition to Lian Li's HTPC chassis series, PC-V353 features a front mesh design and is available in black or silver. The aluminum-front mini-tower PC-Q25 offers a contemporary design and is also available in black and silver colors.

Accepting Micro-ATX or Mini-ITX motherboards, PC-V353 offers energy-saving and quiet, fan-free operation. The chassis is geared towards users wanting a noise-free, passively cooling system, but users still have a choice to install their own fans for active airflow. In addition to four ventilated PCI slots, the front-panel mesh cover forms a ventilation system with decent airflow. Hot air also leaves the frame through the top using the chassis's "thermal flow" top.

The side panel is screw-less and the sliding motherboard tray is another tool-free convenience, as are the removable HDD racks. PC-V353 has two 3.5" and two 2.5" HDD bays, and there is enough room for a 300mm video card.

On the front panel is a power switch along with two USB 3.0 ports, one e-SATA port and HD Audio ports. The dimensions of PC-V353 are 288 x 286 x 397 mm and the weight is 4.13 kg.

PC-Q25 is a compact, mini-tower case that, despite its size, can actually hold up to eight HDDs. It's meant for a standard Mini-ITX motherboard, 3.5 or 2.5-inch hard drives, and a standard ATX PS/2 power supply. The thermal solution is a large 140-mm intake fan placed at the front panel and a 120-mm exhaust fan at the top of the chassis.

PC-Q25 has a removable HDD tray at the bottom of the cage that can hold either two 3.5" HDDs or one 3.5" HDD plus two 2.5" HDD, all add up to the maximum of 8 hard drives. The chassis supports 320-mm long videocards. The dimensions of PC-Q25 are 199 x 280 x 366 mm and the weight is 3.1 kg.
