Lian Li PC-Q30 Mini-ITX Case Review


The front of the case follows the design cues we've seen before in Lian Li cases and has a very minimalist design indeed.  It consists of a single curved sheet of aluminium which stretches from the bottom to the top of the case.  This features a large acrylic window which lets us see the components within the system.


There are two colour options available, black and silver brushed aluminium.  The finish of the case is about as premium as you'll get and looks and feels great.  The build quality of the case as a whole is excellent and it doesn't seem that any corners have been cut in the design and manufacturing.


To find the front panel connections we have to rotate the case slightly as they are located on the left hand side.  Here we find two USB3.0 connectors and headphone and microphone jacks.  There is also a sizeable air vent in the case which consists of a series of holes drilled into the aluminium.


Turning the case around reveals a much less elegant design than the front of the case as it's clear that it's been designed around the components which need to be crammed into the case.  At the bottom there is a mounting bracket for a SFX power supply at the bottom with a large 140 mm exhaust fan further up, which draws hot air from behind the motherboard.  The I/O plate is located at the top of the case.
