The Lian Li chassis has 6-pin Firewire, 3.5mm headphone and microphone sockets and two USB ports on the front of the case; unfortunately though, they are at the very bottom of the case. Despite the fantastic window design, the weight will more than likely relegate the case to the floor, which means cables will need to be long enough to reach the ground and also possibly interfere with use of the door.
The V2100B supports seven 5.25" drives, of which three are used up with a DVDRW, DVD-ROM/CDRW and floppy disk with 7-in-1 card reader, whilst three of the remaining four are used as a grill for allowing air in to cool the hard drives behind.
Whilst the metal wheels appear to fit subtly, they also use a solid axle which makes moving or turning it exceptionally difficult once it’s fully loaded. It isn’t a LAN PC, that’s for sure, unless you’ve got a friend to help you lift it everywhere and a straight line to roll it.
The case is BTX which means it opens from the “wrong” side and everything is upside down. This doesn’t affect the performance of the hardware and suits the built perfectly since the watercooling is fully integrated.
