4 out of 5 eggsGreat NAS box

Pros: Tons of space for drives and passive cooling.

Cons: Power supply over the CPU doesn't give as much space for large heat sinks as one might expect from this case. Removing the lower drive cage requires removing the upper drive cage first.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for a custom FreeNAS server. I didn't see many other cases that could accommodate the six drives I wanted to use. This one can support seven, eight if you want to put a bay in the 5.25" slot. Though this is a micro case, it is very wide. The PSU is partially over the CPU, so there isn't too much room for a large CPU. It's a very roomy case with great airflow. It's a well built case, but requires a lot of work to open and set up. Just opening the case requires removing eight screws. Don't count on hotswapping with this one either, getting a drive from the lower bay will require you to take out the upper bay. The other option would be to try to fit a 6-bay into another case, but that would easily cost twice as much as this.

3 out of 5 eggsPower LED

Pros: It is a Lian-Li, hands down. Generally this product is the Benz of PC cases, but the company is allowed a mistake every now-and-then.

Cons: My particular PC-V354B has a bad Power LED button. The light works fine. The housing of the Power button is not installed well from the factory. Every time I press it, it pushes back in the case. I have modded this case for water cooling, and basically all I did was put some electric tape on the inside of the power button but it still pushes inside. This bugs me tremendously daily.

Other Thoughts: I expect Lian-Li should create a case in this size but room for a Corsair H100 with 120 or 140mm fans on top.

3 out of 5 eggsTheoretically Good

Pros: The brushed metal finish looks great.

2 120mm front intake fans light up blue which is cool and it also includes a 140mm top mounted fan and built in fan controller.

The compact size fits perfectly in my entertainment center.

Cons: Each side panel is held on with 8 tiny screws which makes access kind of a pain. In general there's an abundance of screws and most of them are tiny. For a case this pricey I would expect some tool less features.

There's no space between the motherboard and the right panel to hide your cables.

Other Thoughts: The placement of the power supply can cause interference with the graphics card if the graphics card has its power connectors on the side rather than the end.

The top fan mount is positioned too close to the motherboard to mount a water cooling radiator.

The rear fan mount is also unable to accommodate a water cooling radiator.

The placement of the power supply prevents the use of tower CPU coolers.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: 1. Lian Li quality is unsurpassed.
2. Will fit 7 HD + Optical + an SSD stashed under PSU
3. 2 front fans (in) + 1 fan up top (out) + additional mount for a 120 exhaust
4. Takes any standard PSU.
5. Comes with 2 front USB 3.0 plug + SD card reader
6. Integrated fan controller with control on rear panel.

Cons: Couple niggles that you should be aware of:

1. It does get crowded fast when you fill it up with drives.

2. every time you want to add/remove/change something you have to carefully unscrew about a half dozen screws to open the side panel. It's ok if you add a drive next year, it's a PITA if you are constantly in your case.

3. The lights on the front fans are bright and what starts as a 'cool' feature gets annoying quickly if you have this unit your bedroom and want to try to sleep at night. When the computer is asleep the power button that is lit blinks on and off.

All that said - I still gave it 5 stars. It's just a sexy beast.

Other Thoughts: This is a smaller case so while you can run Crossfire or SLI and 7 HD + an SSD and Optical, it's highly unlikely you can do all of these things at ONCE although someone much more skilled than I could probably find a way to wire it all up, I'm just saying it's a PITA.

There is no motherboard tray or room behind or empty drive bays to hide stuff so you have to plan accordingly.

Modular PSU's are strongly suggested and if you intend to run a really BIG video card you are going to have to remove the bottom 4 HD drive cage and get by on the top cage which holds 3 HD's and perhaps a SSD stashed under the PSU.

5 out of 5 eggsNice case for FreeNAS

Pros: Room for 7 drives.
Nice looking.
Well built.
Quiet fans.
Blue lights.

Cons: Not hot-swappable.
Side panel attached w/tiny screws.
Blue lights.

Other Thoughts: Most of the smaller systems available either are limited in terms of memory or cpu, or only hold four drives or less. I wanted a uATX case with enough room to hold six drives so I could run a six-drive ZFS RAIDZ2 array. It's perfect for that, although if a drive tips over I'm going to have to pull the case apart to get at it. Not knocking Lian-Li for that. I knew what I was getting when I bought it.

However if Lian-Li or Fractal Design built a decent 6-drive uATX hot-swappable enclosure at a reasonable price I would buy it right now.

My build:
LIAN LI PC-V354B Black Aluminum MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case
SUPERMICRO MBD-X9SCL-F-O LGA 1155 Intel C202 Micro ATX
Intel Xeon E3-1230 V2 Ivy Bridge 3.3GHz
Kingston 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Unbuffered DDR3 1600
TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 (6 x 3TB) 7200 RPM drives
Antec Earthwatts 500w power supply

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case for a small home server.

Pros: I've had this case for about 6 months now and LOVE it. Perfect case for my needs, a small home server. I needed a Micro ATX case that was short enough to fit under my desk, but had room for a lot of hard drives. This met my needs perfectly. I'm running WHS 2011 with about 12 terabytes of storage, a Blu-ray drive, an SSD for the boot drive, and still have room to expand.

The little features like USB 3.0, Dust Filters, Fan speed controller, and the card reader are really nice and have come in handy. Just to give the case a different look from my main desktop (Antec 1200 with all blue fans), I switched out all the stock blue fans for red ones and the case looks great.

Cons: Its definitely not the easiest case to build in but I knew this going in. This is NOT a case for someone who changes there configuration often. Opening the case requires removing 8 small screws. Inside the case once everything is in there isnt a lot of room to work. Cooling is adequate for most builds but I wouldn't try to cram too powerful of a gaming rig into this case.

Other Thoughts: Great case for people with a specific need. If you're looking for a case and the location is restricted by height, but you want a case that has room for a lot of storage, this case is perfect.

5 out of 5 eggsAwsome Case

Pros: This case is stupid light even after the build! Quality is very high and the fans are quiet. The fan controller is very nice too. Easily tweakable as I put a watercooling unit in it.

Cons: Its aluminum with steel screws...Beware as you can strip the screw hole with any unneeded force.

Other Thoughts: Its wider then an average case so might not fit everywhere you want it.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice Case with Quiet Fans

Pros: I have to mirror what others have said about this case. It is larger than you might expect from looking at the picture (the website dimensions are accurate). In my mind I thought I would have more trouble getting everything inside, but in fact everything fit, but it was tighter than my previous build. My cabinet the computer fits in dictated this, however, and now my new build tucks quietly inside my cabinet instead of under my feet. It is also very quiet. I have a cabinet fan that pulls air through the cabinet, and it makes just enough noise that I cannot hear the actual computer inside the cabinet at all. For now I am using the stock fans, and not overclocking, and the temps inside are fine. More than adequate airflow. The case is very well made and very sturdy with no vibrations. There are two HDD cages that can each be removed, the lower one removed if you wanted a longer graphics card, but I did not need to remove either and kept them both. The LED fans look good, but since my build is in a cabinet, it's a waste of blue light.

Cons: I won't dock any eggs for these items, because most of them are related to the size of the case limiting a better solution, but if you are building with this case, I think these are things you need to expect....

1. Cable management is going to be sloppy. Next to impossible to be tidy because there is no place to hide things inside. You will never know this once the case is closed up, though.
2. Yes, the screws that hold the case sides on are very short and small, which makes them hard to screw in. They are so short with fine threads they are hard to "start" into their holes without rolling on their sides. I used a small magnetic screwdriver with a smaller than normal Phillips head and that pretty much eliminated this.
3. Installing the optical drive was a PITA. This was the only time I had to remove the right side of the case, so it would have been nice if you could drop that cage out without having to disassemble the right side of the case (8 tiny screws, then more tiny screws that hold the cage in). What is worse is that you have the have the drive adjusted pretty close fore/aft so that it operates the drive button and door. Which you won't know if you have done correctly until the drive is running. Which means if you get it wrong you have to take both sides off the computer to adjust it. So I was careful to seat the drive right up against the drop down door assembly as far as I could without having the door open. Hopefully I am making sense, but by doing this my drive operated perfectly the first time.
4. In the back of the case, there is a little circuit board with places to attach up to 4 case fan leads. This is great, but it kind of sticks out into the case and you have to get around this when you drop your MOBO into place. Additionally, the cables from the two front fans are barely long enough to reach where they plug into, and so I had to work around these two cables for everything else. Maybe for you would be better to just attach these two cables to the MOBO fan headers and bypass the ability to control the case fan speeds with the case rheostat??

5. There are 3 places where you can attach your SSD drive in the bottom of the case. 2 of these would have you attach to the actual case floor, and the 3rd is in the bottom of the lower removable drive cage. I hooked my SSD into the removable cage drive, because I tried every conceivable combination of the others, but every time I had wire issues. The bracket that holds the power supply steady in the bottom of the case blocks your power and SATA cables from being hooked to the SSD's. And that bracket is not removable. Probably best if you have a 3.5 to 2.5 inch drive cage converter ready so you can mount your SSD in a regular cage if you run into the same issues. I was able to mount mine in the bottom cage to the cage itself, but the SATA cable attachment is not as secure as it should be (doesn't quite lock in place).

Other Thoughts: I will list here my build combination so you will know for a fact that the following hardware combinations fit inside the case. I was guessing that mine would, and it worked out. You should know that once you drop your MOBO into place, it's difficult to get your big hands down inside there to hook stuff up, so do everything you can to your mobo before you drop it into place...(processor, cooler, memory, cooler wires...) One of the MOBO mounting screws hides down under the optical drive cage and is difficult to get to. Again, all these issues are because of the size of the case. I have no regrets that it was worth dealing with these issues to have this case size for my build.

Here is my build...

Lian Li PC-V354B CASE

ASUS P8Z77-M LGA 1155 Intel Z77 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

ASUS GT430 Video Card (no fan, single card width)

Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz

COOLER MASTER GeminII S524

Kingston HyperX 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM

Corsair Force Series GS 360GB SSD

Two Western Digital 2 TB drives in Raid 1

All these items fit into the case, and the system is smoking fast for an office computer. Windows loads before it can make it's logo, and Microsoft Word is on the screen before you lift up on your mouse finger.

The case looks great, is quiet, allows for great cooling, most importantly, fits into my cabinet and I don't even need to know it's there...

Best of luck to your build
