Lian Li PC-Q11 Mini ITX Case Review

Rating: 9.0.

I am a sucker for a well designed aluminum chassis and Lian Li have always been one of the pioneers in this sector. They recently updated their fantastic Q series of compact enclosures with the PC-Q11.

While these designs are based around the tiny ITX standard they allow for people to use a full sized ATX power supply and a standard size optical drive – an omission we disliked with the recent review of the Silverstone Sugo SG07 chassis.

We received the black version for review (Q11B), but they also produce red and silver models, with a white scheme hitting retail in October.

    This gets me rather hard. lian li are still such a sexy company

  • Garry

    It is a lovely design, but I cant help but feel that lian li are really lacking much innovation with their outward designs.

  • Tim

    Their outward appearance is what makes them look like ‘lian li’ I think if they started going into weird looking thermaltake style designs then they would lose their identity in this market.

    I think they are coming up with enough internal improvements to warrant continued success. This black case would look great next to my sony tv.

  • Fluffychicken

    They make a quality product, love them myself, but it is expensive, especiallyw ithout a power supply

  • Bob

    Why is the red one 20 more ?

  • Garry

    its more expensive to make as the finish takes longer.

  • Frank

    I really dig this, price is right and the product looks good.

  • Trev

    Nice looking case , ideal shape too, never really liked the sugo shape

  • Brooklyn

    Nice design, I like the fact the vents are in the side panels for intake rather than front

  • Jimmy

    I like Lian Li but I think they are overrated.

  • Tech head

    Why is it overrated Jimmy I see nothing wrong with this?

  • Joseph

    I love their engineering, seriously their aluminium is quality material

  • Thomaa

    I am ordering one of these in black , love the design and shape. Quick question, does anyone really want to over clock in a case like this?

  • Kern

    I have the older model, this has quite a few improvements and I cant understand the Lian Li haters, these cases rock.
