Lian Li PC-V360 Finds Room for a Radiator Right Over The Motherboard

Case designers find room for liquid cooling radiators often by stretching the case out and creating it along the top, bottom, or front of the case. Lian Li found it at the most obvious place -- along the plane of the motherboard, right over its top half. A 240 x 120 mm radiator can be screwed onto a hinged frame, which can be easily moved to access parts of the motherboard right under it. The running idea here is that CPU blocks create a lot of space for this contraption to work. 

The V360 is otherwise a typical Lian Li micro-ATX case, with top-mounted PSU bay, all-aluminum construction, a single 5.25-inch drive bay, five 3.5-inch bays, and three 2.5-inch ones, which create enough room for long graphics cards such as AMD Radeon HD 5970, to fit in. 

Ventilation includes a 120 mm front intake, a 120 mm rear exhaust, an 80 mm top exhaust, a 120 mm bottom intake (at the expense of one expansion slot), and vents on the side panel for the radiator assembly to work.
