Lian Li PC-V358 Review - Cooling Performance


Due to the fact our usual micro-ATX cooler won't fit in the Lian Li PC-V358, we clearly weren't able to add our results to our usual micro-ATX case graphs. However, we did have another way of comparing it to a bunch of other small cases, which was to use our mini-ITX test gear that uses a low profile cooler. This means that comparisons can only be made against the results in the graphs - not with any other micro-ATX case results.

Our test kit includes:
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K overclocked to 4.3GHz using a vcore of 1.3V.
  • Graphics card: GeForce GTX 570 1.3GB
  • Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe
  • RAM: 4GB Kingston DDR3 1600MHz memory
  • PSU: Enermax Eco 82+ 620W PSU
  • CPU cooler: Zalman CNPS 8900 low-profile cooler


The graphics card fan was locked at 70 per cent speed and the system was loaded using Prime95 and Unigene's Heaven benchmark. We used Realtemp and GPU-Z to monitor the temperatures, taking the maximum values when the readings had plateaued.
