I like the new Lian-Li Mini-ITX case PC-Q16, which could be ok for my next build. Otherwise it looks quite nice, but I do not understand where the hot air is supposed to go out.

Based on the gallery images, it has air intake vent in the front panel with a 140 mm fan, but I see no exhaust vents in the back panel, sides, bottom or top. There is maybe some airflow through the PSU, but is that supposed to be the only exhaust route?

Also the other two new Mini-ITX models look ok, especially the PC-Q02 with no case fans.

That looks like it:

The whole design is pretty silly from front to back.

I really like this case and wanted to use it for a couple of builds, but it looks like it's only being sold with the 300W SFX power supply. If Lian Li lose the PSU and make it easy to use picoPSU (or similar) instead, then there should be plenty of space to put a reasonable size cooler in there and plenty of ventilation out the back.

Well considering even that big fan is being sold as low rpm, low airflow, prob ok to have it get pushed out through the power supply. Man, these little cases are great for server boxes, yet they keep only having room for only 1 3.5" HDD! grrr
