After I took the PC-V352 out of its packaging I realized how stylish and sweet the case really looked. As I said we received the silver version of the PC-V352, but it also comes in black and red. Like many Lian Li cases the PC-V352 is made of aluminum, with the outside being brushed aluminum, so it really has a great look to it. The case has the typical cube design we have seen before, but is a little larger. The actual dimensions are 280mm x 275mm x 400mm.
The front of the case has a design that looks like a door, but it is just for looks. There are no drive bays on the front of the case. Towards the bottom of the case there is a set of intake holes and the Lian Li logo. There is also a small power and reset button on the right side.
Moving around to the left side of the case there is where you will find the drive bays. You have 2 5.25-inch drive bays with the brushed aluminum drive bays that we are always used to seeing on Lian Li cases. Towards the bottom there is another set of ventilation holes.
On the opposite side of the case there are 2 more 5.25-inch drive bays, one of which has a 3.5-inch adapter in it. You will also find a set of connections towards the front of the case. These connections include 1 eSATA, 2 USB 3.0 and front audio ports. There is also a SD card slot, something we usually do not see on cases.
Moving around back you can sort of see how the inside of the case is designed. Towards the top of the case there is a 80mm exhaust fan.
One thing I noticed right away about the back of the case were all the thumbscrews. These are not to open the case but actually for the removable motherboard tray. When you remove the 7 thumbscrews the tray easily comes out.
On the bottom of the case there are 4 small feet. Towards the front of the case there is another ventilation spot.
