Lian Li, a famous Taiwanese PC chassis designer, unveils its new, extraordinary mini-tower chassis, codenamed PC-Q30. Its extraordinary nature is manifested in an atypical framework: a bending tower with a large transparent window in the front. This model features 368x284x421 mm dimensions and is earmarked specifically for mini-ITX and mini-DTX motherboards.
Lian Li promises to start the sales in June for a recommended price of about $150. In order to serve the needs of various customer audiences, the manufacturer will offer the case in two color variations: silver and black.
PC chassis from Lian Li is ready to accommodate four hard drives and/or solid-state drives of 2.5-inch form-factor, a couple of PCI/PCI Express graphics adapters of up to 200 mm in length, a low-rise CPU cooler of up to 130 mm, and a power supply unit of SFX form-factor (up to 125 mm in length). The latter is located on rubber holdups in the bottom part of the case. Unfortunately, there are no dedicated bays for 3.5-inch and 5.25-inch drives.
PC-Q30 will be delivered with a single 140 mm fan to provide for an efficient cooling process. I/O panel, housed on the left-side facet, consists of standard audio sockets (for headphones and a microphone) and two USB 3.0 ports.
