When space is a consideration for your next PC, nothing competes with the Lian Li PC-Q07. This compact case is made specifically for mini-ITX motherboards which are some of the smallest form factors in the industry. Despite the economical dimensions, the PC-Q07 still fits standard sized parts. You can create the compact PC of your dreams with a full-sized optical drive, 3.5-inch HDD and ATX PSU.

The innovative cooling design for the PC-Q07 makes case fans unnecessary. Perforations in the panels vent hot air to keep heat from building up and slowing down your system. If your PSU has a 120mm fan, you can mount the power supply facing the CPU to aid in cooling. Mount the PSU the other way and cool the power supply with fresh air. The choice is yours!

Silent performance is important to Lian Li, and it shows with the PC-Q07. The chassis is built with 1.5mm-thick aluminum alloy to minimize vibration. The side panel is secured by screws to increase the stability of the case. Finally, HDDs are mounted with anti-vibration grommets that keep the hard disk drive from shaking the case when it spins up. For all of your silent and compact computer needs, buy the Lian Li PC-Q07 today!

4 out of 5 eggsConcise

Pros: Beautiful. Compact. Despite having no case fan and even with fairly powerful components my CPU stays cool, even when working long hours on processor intensive work.

Cons: Front USB port should have been USB3.0 instead of USB2.0.

I recommend getting a PSU with detachable cables so you don't have a bunch of extra cables lying around in your case that you're not using.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat case and for the money can't be beat

Pros: i needed a simple, high quality, mini itx desktop machine for my daughter attending college. i bought this unit because it is well made and very small and thus takes very little desktop space.

Cons: no cons...though remember this a simple case for simple desktop needs.

Other Thoughts: i paired it with a mid level asus mobo, a 35w intel i3 using a large passive heat sink, slapped 16 gigs of ram on it, and the little devil can handle some major homework.

my fourth lian li case and i will be buying more.

5 out of 5 eggsLian Li Case Deal a Gateway Drug

Pros: Beautiful build quality. Lian Li has a well built jewel of a case with no sharp corners and quality brackets and standoffs.

Cons: Why the tiny screws holding the sides on? It begs you to drop or lose these tiny, short flathead #4's that will be a mother to replace. Why is the optical writer rack riveted in? Should use screws so it can be dropped down. I mounted a Kingston 120GB SSD and a WD 750GB 2.5 drive above the optical drive. Lian LI you should not have let that space go to waste. The bottom of the optical drive rack can accept a 3.5 inch card reader / usb device. The front needs notching for it too. The HDD rack in the bottom wastes space better used for a filtered intake fan. Shrink that USB 3.0 assembly. Sticks into the case too far making video card installation difficult.

Other Thoughts: This case has a ton of missed potential that if the time is taken can make an amazing powerhouse. The 2.5 SSD and HDD available today can slide above the optical drive saving the space in the bottom. I cut that out and mounted an intake 120mm fan with a filter to supplement and cool the video card. A short MSI 7770 video card fit in the case in my Gigabyte GA- Z77N Wi-Fi board only after carving away the outer black sheath on the USB 3.0 front panel connector. That was way too big and stuck out into the case way too far. I put Isolate 1 inch pads for feet to give the fan space to pull air and quiet the case further. In addition, I mounted a slim 120mm fan to the side next to the SFF 400w Silverstone Power Supply. I mounted the PS to blow onto the Samuel 17 cooler on the i5 3570K. The side fan did exhaust. That still left space to velcro an additional WD 2.5 1TB HDD to the inside of the front panel. Very tight but doable fit. Stays cool. Does everything a big Mid Tower ATX monster can do. A little limited with no more SATA available but really sweet at less than 10 pounds and whisper quiet.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Small Case

Pros: Almost everything (see Other Thoughts)

Cons: Possibly the pci slot/usb position (see Other Thoughts)

Other Thoughts: This is an excellent little Home Theater case. When looking for cases I wanted something small that I could use a standard power supply with and this was one of the few that met that requirement. I am very happy with the look of this case, and as long as you account for a few size constraints it is a good case.

Starting from the top:

Disk Drive:
Nothing special here, it fit and the cables weren't too hard to hook up

The mini-ITX board that I bought fit well, no complaints

CPU Fan:
Dont expect to to put a huge fan in this case, because of how the PSU is positioned you only get half the width of the case for the fan. I used the Rosewill RCX-Z775-LP and have had no problems with space or cooling, the stock intel fan may fit in, but I would be aware of this limitation.

No problem

Be prepared for this to be a bit annoying unless you buy a modular psu. I did not and there is no good place to put the extra cables. I do like however that you can change the orientation of the psu for better airflow. If you dont mind some clutter from cables this should not be considered a con as many cases have poor cable management.

This is an interesting one, as you can see in the images the pci slot is slightly above the usb sockets in the front of the case. If you intend to use a shorter card in here or only use a single width card you should be fine. I did not measure however and was unable to have both the front usb sockets and my graphics card in at the same time (HIS iSilence 5 H667PNS1G). This was remedied by just removing the from usb sockets (2 screws). This is my only complaint about this case, but as it is not meant to be a gaming case I cannot be too angry.

Cooling: I havent had any issues with cooling and I currently have only 2 fans in the case (psu and cpu). I did this to reduce noise. Its definitely no overclocking case, but for some light gaming (Borderlands 2, Tropico 4) and netflix watching it is great.

3 out of 5 eggsCramped

Pros: Nice Looking.

Cons: This case is too small for all but the simplest of builds--I would NOT recommend it if you wish to install a video card (it will overheat). For on-CPU video with a small power supply it works o.k., but you have to be willing to contend with having to remove and reinstall tiny screws every time you need to blow dust out of the case.

5 out of 5 eggsJust Right

Pros: Made for ATX power Supply, although a lot of extra connections will not fit.

Cons: Not a lot of ventilation.

Other Thoughts: Used an ATX power supply with a 120 fan and system works great.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I have built several systems in these cases. If you know what you are doing and can properly select components that can handle the limited air flow and space, they are fantastic little cases. The USB cable is now much longer than it used to be and can reach any corner of the case with ease.

Cons: Not a one!

3 out of 5 eggsCramped

Pros: It's cute.

Cons: This case is very small--really too small for full-sized components. I was able to install a mid-priced, small video card on my mini-ITX motherboard, but the card clears my 3.5" hard drive by only 1/8", making adequate ventillation from the video card's fan questionable. A modular power supply is really an essential with this case; even so, one has to be very careful its cables don't break the front panel switch and LED wires, which are unprotected in the case. Periodic cleaning of dust from this case is a big chore, as one has to remove at least six tiny screws from one of the case's side panels as well as one's power supply in order to access one's motherboard with an air-spray can.

Other Thoughts: Save yourself some aggravation and buy one of Lian Li's larger cases (if you have the room)--this case is likely good for only one build.

4 out of 5 eggsno airflow, tight quarters

Pros: Small
Front USB

Cons: Has only 1 drive bay
No airflow (New AMD Trinity APU fan runs at max speed)
ATX power supply (I thought this would be a pro but its size and number of cords is a big proglem)
Power LED is way too bright. For my HTPC purpose i had to turn the computer sideways
