To test the thermal performance of the Lian Li PC-Q30 we loaded our test system for 15 minutes using Prime95 and Furmark and recorded the maximum temperatures reached using CPUID Hardware Monitor. We then restarted the system and left it for 15 minutes before recording idle temperatures.
Room temperature was maintained at 20 degrees C for the duration of our tests.
We are fairly impressed with the cooling performance of the system, considering it actually only features one fan. It would be difficult to improve it by adding further fans, though, as none of the vents feature mounting points.
