240mm radiators as well as AIO liquid cooling kits can be installed on a hinged bracket.

The bracket can also be removed for fan/radiator mounting as well as taken off completely if not being used.

Compartmentalized Heat Zone Design

The Lian Li PC-V358 has a two compartment design that separates the hardware into heat zones. The top section holds the motherboard, graphics card and 2.5” drives, while the bottom compartment holds the PSU and 3.5” hard drives.
Two front 120mm fans with dust filters bring cool air inside the chassis. A rear 120mm fan pulls the hardware damaging hot air out.
