Exterior cont.


The rear of the PC-V1110 has a few very useful features. Looking at the fan, we see that Lian Li has used a removable fan-grill for the rear of the case, which is super convenient for those who want to remove the fan grill or put in a custom one. At the top, we find the door opening mechanisms and a fan controller. The fan controller has three modes: low, middle and high, which are labeled with engravings on the surface of the case. Lian Li used their typical power supply faceplate design on the PC-V1110. The PSU faceplate can be removed from the case with the thumbscrews, and attached to the PSU outside the case. Then the PSU can be slid back in and the faceplate reattached with the thumbscrews.


Lian Li has a very nice side-panel system in place on the PC-V1110. To remove the side panel, unscrew the thumbscrew on the back and pull back. The top of the side panel then falls outwards, and the whole panel can be lifted out for removal. It's a really nice touch that the thumbscrews cannot be removed from the case, and therefore cannot be lost. The whole system is really quite well engineered and foolproof.

At the bottom of the case, you'll find vents for the power supply if yours uses a bottom-mount fan, as well as the two wheel mechanisms. The wheels on the PC-V1110 are aluminum, and will scratch and won't roll well on a hard surface. As such, Lian Li included four black rubber sleeves for use on hard surfaces.

There is a locking mechanism on the rear wheels to keep the case in place. When the drawer is pushed in, the block on the back wheels cannot rotate, but when it is pulled back the wheels are free to move. I would have liked to see Lian Li put the lock on the front for easier access, but it is easy enough to change manually with a screwdriver.

Continue as we move to the inside of the PC-V1110.
