The Chrome Castle

Level 9
Hello It's Michael Kaiser After The Metallica Build I went on a year long Gaming binge. I finally found a case that Inspired me.

The Victim of my affection is a Lian Li PC-V359. This is a Micro ATX case, but I will be using a Mini ATX
board so I will have a little extra room for cooling gear and mods, I like the square proportions
compared to the Mini version of this case.


The case I ordered was Black with black Pillars. The Case I got was Black with Red Pillars
I kinda liked that model too so I'm going to go with it. Funny in the Lian li literature the
red is more of a fire engine red, but this anodized red is a much better tone of red - Sold.


One of the interesting things about this Case is that the top and three sides slide out of
the corner pillars to give easy access which opens up a myriad of options for modding.



I had a huge sheet of thick Deep Red Acrylic so the first thing i did was make a replacement top window.
I know there are a million red and black builds out there, but that's because it looks good
I'll just have to find a way to keep it from being boring.



I didn't know it at the time, but once I put hardware in the case
the red window made everything inside look strange. Well
sometimes we have to experiment to get what were looking for.


Here is a size comparison between the Lian Li and a Corsair 250D, Most of the hardware I'll be using
would fit in the 250D except the thicker radiator but that wouldn't leave much room for the fun stuff.
