The V3000 Plus is a giant dual PC case — with one drawback

What’s better than a large PC case that can accommodate massive GPUs? How about a giant computer case that can hold two entire computers? The Lian Li V3000 Plus PC Case can do just that.

The V3000 Plus has been in the works since early 2022 when Lian Li unveiled the case in a YouTube video. The company touted the case’s extensive cooling and interior space — big enough to hold two entire PC systems.

The case features an all-aluminum body with an ARGB strip running straight down the center front panel. Both side panels are made of tempered glass.

Cooling is at the center of the V3000 Plus tower. It supports up to 16 fans and up to three 480 mm radiators and one 360 ​​mm radiator. There are also two reservoir plates for your pumps if you opt for liquid cooling.

Decent cable management is also built in. Lian Li has included five small Velcro straps and two large straps in the case, so you can tuck those cables in nicely. The back panel is tinted darker than the sides to better hide the cable. Face it, no matter how much Velcro you use, your cables will be a mess.

The case uses a tool-free mounting system for your SSD, and you can accommodate up to four storage drives, thanks to various cages and trays.

However, don’t get too excited. The case can only fit one older EEB motherboard, E-ATX motherboard or micro-ATX motherboard and one small ITX motherboard as a second system. You can opt for a standard or rotated version of the tower; in that case you can use larger boards for Raptor Lake chips or with AM5 sockets.

The good news is that you can actually fit a monster GPU here. Let’s take the biggest card as an example. The Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 is 304 mm long and 137 mm thick. The V3000 Plus case has 589 mm of free space on one side and 320 mm on the other. There are eight slots available, so it will take any GPU you throw at it.

Still, motherboard limitations are a drawback, but not a problem. You could find an E-ATX board with enough room for a 12th gen Intel system, and Asus makes an E-ATX board with an AM5 socket for Ryzen 7000 series chips.

Imagine having your gaming PC and your work PC together… but separate. That might actually happen with this tower. We don’t have pricing details or a final release date yet, so stay tuned.
