EXTERIOR

The Lian Li PC-Q10 weighs 2.3 kg or 5.1 lb and is composed of an aluminum exterior with an acrylic side window and a steel interior. It measures 20.7 x 27.7 x 33.5 cm or 8.1 x 10.9 x 13.2 inches (W x H x D) for a total volume of just 19.2 Liters.


The PC-Q10 has a striking aluminum front bezel with a smooth surface so you get the stylish look of a brush finish but not the rough feel. The control panel is located near the bottom and features USB 3.0 and audio ports. The glitzy jewel of a power button is also composed of aluminum with a tiny hole in the center for the case's almost imperceptible blue power and red drive activity LEDs.


The front and top are actually part of a single L-shaped piece with a bevelled corner. Towards the front is the slot for an slim optical drive while the rest of the panel is covered in ventilation. Mounting holes are provided for two 120 mm fans though the one closest to the front is not usable as it would interfere with the power supply mounting frame.


A 120 mm exhaust fan is pre-installed at the back and covered with an old school wire fan grill rather than the more common honeycomb vent. The AC power cord attaches on the side next to the I/O panel.


The underside is wide open, as ventilation slits abound. Two 120 mm fans can be installed here or alternatively you can bayonet mount three/two 2.5/3.5 inch drives.


The acrylic window is a substantial 3 mm thick and attached using four thin plastic black thumbscrews. The panel is well secured and should do a decent job of keeping noise in.
