Lian Li Introduces PC-Q07 Mini-ITX Chassis
Lian Li is traditionally know for deploying big, beastly cages with
lofty price tags and enough room for at least two whole computer
setups. Clearly, the company is coming back in touch with its softer
side, as the latest chassis to flow from its doors is one designed
specifically with space savings in mind.
The PC-Q07 Mini-ITX box
is ready-made for those eager to build their own small-form-factor
(SFF) machine, though it's no less sturdy than every other tower in the
company's fleet. The black, hairline-brushed shell is constructed
entirely from aluminum and provides just enough breathing room for a
Mini-ITX platform and all the requisite full sized components. It was
also strategically designed to be passively cooled, with air vents
placed specifically to keep things silent and cool under pressure.
Measuring in at 7.59- x 11.02- x 8.18-inches, the box also features a
reversible PSU bracket which gives you the power to arrange the PSU as you see fit. You'll also find a single 5.25-inch optical
drive bay, one 3.5-inch HDD bay and one 2.5-inch HDD bay. All told, the
case weighs just 2.42-pounds, and in case you didn't catch it already,
there's enough room in here to integrate full size components, which
should be a real boon for gamers and their monstrous GPUs.
Li gave no indication of a price, but considering the outfit's history
of selling high quality parts with high-end stickers, we'd bet that
you'll be paying a premium.
