Lian-Li has introduced a new mini-ITX chassis, mainly designed for HTPC use. The PC-Q19 is essentially an updated version of the older PC-Q12 slim case. However, the Q19 brings some notable improvements such as VGA support and room for additional storage.
The PC-Q19 has a slim profile of 160mm and can support graphics cards as long as 220mm. You’ll need an SFX power supply and possibly some extension cables for certain models. In an effort to make the case media center and office friendly, it can be positioned both vertically and horizontally.
The case includes two magnetic dust filters, one of which has a 120mm fan behind it. In addition, there is support for up to three 2.5 inch drives and one full size 3.5 inch drive. As far as front I/O goes, you’ll get two front panel USB 3.0 ports and an illuminated power button.
The Lian-Li will be available from Caseking and Wave from the end of August for £99.

KitGuru Says: This case might not be suited to gaming but it could make for a decent media PC or small office machine. What do you guys think? How many of you guys have dabbled in to building HTPCs?
