@soopahfly: Pretty much same as every previous PC-V35x series case :
And too bad they make PC-V35x uglier by every iteration.
PC-V350 had a nice front : http://www.lian-li.com/en/dt_portfolio/pc-v350/
PC-V351 added a small vent opening on front, making it a bit uglier : http://www.lian-li.com/en/dt_portfolio/pc-v351/
PC-V352 removed the signature "line" and instead added a square shaped line and made it even uglier : http://www.lian-li.com/en/dt_portfolio/pc-v352/
PC-V353 went totally nuts and made the front full mesh : http://www.lian-li.com/en/dt_portfolio/pc-v353/
PC-V354 doesn't belong to the case line.
PC-V355 went back to PC-V352 design without the square, and moved the ports on front, which killed the clean front design http://www.lian-li.com/en/dt_portfolio/pc-v355/
And now in PC-V358 it is even worse : http://www.lian-li.com/en/dt_portfolio/pc-v358/ - they added a big mesh, front mounted slim optical drive without a hiding cover (so if you will mount a dvd drive there, it will stick out visually).
While internally improved, externally it degraded.
