LOVE this case.

  • Pros: Everything worked great. More space than you think! Fits the largest of duel slot GPU's (I've got a R9 295x in it) I managed to fit a few radiators in mine for water cooling.
  • Cons: Beware that if you do air cooling there is not much room for an after market cpu cooler. The case gets pretty warm.

nice case

  • Summary: The fans are definitely audible without power modulation. If you want the computer to be quiet you're going to want to control the fans somehow. The stock fans being 3-pin makes that a little bit harder, I think.
  • Pros: Sleek exterior. Nice shape. Lightweight. Mounting options for SSDs. One-screw side panel access is nice (on both sides even), but... (see con)
  • Cons: Optional C-02(b) 5.25 drive bezel is not included. Fans are 3-pin, not 4-pin. Front 140mm fan only blows directly on half of the hard drive cage. No option to route ATX power cable behind MB. Side panel screws are drop-it-and-you've-lost-it-forever-tiny.

Lian Li PC-Q28A Silver

ken h., Newegg
20 March 2014
  • Summary: i5-4130T 2.9GHz 35W Haswell ADATA XPG v1.0 8GB (2 x 4GB) Samsung 840 pro SSD Lian Li PC-Q28A Small, fast and quiet. Runs great! Check the dimensions of your large CPU cooler and video card before you buy!
  • Pros: USB 3.0 on the front panel Allows large video cards Allows standard ATX power supplies Allows standard 3.5 optical drive Lots of room for multiple HDs Good airflow (for an ITX case) Room for a large CPU cooler
  • Cons: A little larger than I thought. It's just a little smaller than a mini ATX case (not really a con). But, if it was any smaller, then it wouldn't allow for a large video card, ATX power supply, and a big CPU cooler...

Okay Case

David L., Newegg
23 February 2014
  • Pros: Light case Nice aluminum and paint
  • Cons: Barely fits standard 170 mm ATX Power Supplies. Lian Li claims it fits and it does fit the actual dimensions of standard PSU. BUT you have to remove the hard drive bay to accommodate for the wires that come out of the PSU or modular PSU. So if you were planning to use the hard drive cage bay for ...

  • Summary: the reason why i chose this case because it is small, has a clean look, and fits normal PC parts. I think that 80-90 dollar is a descent price for this case. I know i said that the case has a high quality aluminum feel, but at the same time i feel like anyone that knows how to do machine work can...
  • Pros: - Compact - Fits normal PC components - Very clean look - Stock fans are quiet - High Quality brushed aluminum feel (like apple products)
  • Cons: - A bit pricey - Cable management poor (that is normal though for ITX) - Ventilation is somewhat poor, but not bad. - CPU heatsinks limited.

My new favorite Li; A functional version of the PC-Q25B

Ben O., Newegg
28 December 2013
  • Summary: I recently purchased a PC-Q25B to use as my mini ITX gaming case for it's roomy graphics card area read: (fits a full size Titan) I was disappointed with lack of USB ports, (didn't make sense to me even if it were used as a closet home server) I was also disappointed with a lack of space for a...
  • Pros: Cases are shrinking, Lian Li's cornered the market. Excellent Form and function as per most of Lian Li's cases USB 3.0 up front on the side for easy access Power/activity light is beautiful; maybe even a little sexy, It blends color activity LED with power LED almost has a subtle UV purple tone t...
  • Cons: The front intake for the size of fan is silly IMO, I realize it's regarding noise to have a large fan, but the intake seems too small to get adequate airflow. Vent the front (or side), using similar to PC-Q25B's side hole punches, this will help drop temperatures. I would also love to see a versi...
