Lian Li has announced a new enclosure along the lines of the PC-Q33 (a mini-ITX enclosure we reviewed here), but this new PC-V33 houses a full ATX motherboard inside its cube-like, hinged exterior.

If you’ve looked into open test benches at all you’ll really appreciate the design of the PC-V33, which essentially takes that idea and adds a cover that conveniently folds down on a hinge, exposing all components. This is a very unconventional design, and one I really appreciated when reviewing the mini-ITX version. So what’s new besides the larger size and support for ATX motherboards?

Here’s a quick rundown of the enclosure’s features:

  • Unique flip-open canopy, opens to test bench style ease of access
  • Full ATX size build in compact mid-tower case
  • Full sized PSU and GPU card supported
  • Up to 240mm internal radiator support
  • Redesigned rear vents with increased air flow
  • New shock-absorbing drive cage
  • Easy-open side doors with no screws and toolless design throughout
  • Black or silver full aluminum or add a tempered glass side wall

In addition to supporting full-sized components and 240mm radiators, there is also support for tower air coolers up to 190mm high, and the case also features a rubber-damped hard drive cage (and drives have their own 120mm exhaust fan). How much space will the PC-V33 take up on your desk? Dimensions are (WxHxD) 13.15" x 13.86" x 15.35", which are on par with an open test bench case.

The MSRP of the standard version is $199 and the version with a glass side panel is $229. The PC-V33 will available in early September.
