The V3000 Plus is a giant double PC case – with one drawback

What’s better than a big PC case that can hold massive GPUs? How about a huge PC case that can hold two full 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 showed off the case in a YouTube video. The company praised this chassis’ extensive cooling and internal space — large enough for two full PC systems.

The case has an all-aluminium chassis with an ARGB strip running right along the front center panel. Both side panels are made of tempered glass.

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

There’s also decent cable management built in. Lian Li has included five small Velcro straps and two large straps inside the case so you can tuck those cables away 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 are going to be a mess.

The chassis uses a tool-less mounting system for your SSD, and you can fit up to four storage drives, thanks to a variety of cages and trays.

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

The good news is you could fit a monster GPU here. Take as an example the largest card there is. The Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 is 304mm long and 137mm thick. The V3000 Plus case has 589mm of clearance on one side and 320mm on the other side. There are eight slots available, so it can accommodate any GPU you throw at it.

Still, the motherboard’s limitations are a drawback, but they’re not a deal breaker. You could find an E-ATX board with enough room for an Intel 12th generation 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 computer all together… but separately. It could really happen with this tower. We don’t know the pricing details or the final release date yet, so stay tuned.
