Mini-ITX Case
Street Price

Over the years Lian Li has produced their fair share of mini-ITX cases in their well known all-aluminum style. The last three models we reviewed all offered ATX power supply support and more notably, multiple hard drive bays. The latter is great for servers but rather wasteful otherwise. For the many users who only have one or two drives, the drive slots needlessly take up a substantial amount of space inside the chassis. The extra room could have been better utilized or shed entirely to make the cases sleeker.

The Lian Li PC-Q10.

Their latest mini-ITX offering, the PC-Q10, does exactly that, keeping potential storage to a minimum. With a total volume of under 19 Liters and a gorgeous side panel window, it's easily the slimmest and best looking Lian Li enclosure ever. While its pedigree is well documented, the optical drive slot at the top is reminiscent of the NCASE M1, the similarly elegant and compact all-aluminum case famously crowdfunded, and built on contract by Lian-Li. The PC-Q10 is not quite that small as it can fit a full-sized ATX power supply as well as a 120 mm exhaust fan. Cooling seems to be well addressed with a fully ventilated top and bottom compensating for the solid front and sides panels.

Box and case.


The PC-Q10 ships in a rather plain cardboard box with protective sheets covering both sides of the acrylic window to ensure it arrives scratch free. The accessories are contained in a small white box tied to the interior of the chassis. Inside are all the necessary screws, rubber grommets for mounting drives to bottom of the case, a PC speaker, three zip-ties, and a couple of cable routing hooks. A brief assembly guide and case badge are also provided.
