5 out of 5 eggsLike it so far

Pros: High build quality. New USB 3 cable with 19-pin header!! That really surprise me because everyone complains about the USB3 cable of Lian Li Q case. It seems Lian Li finally knew what their customers want. Easy to remove the side panels for installation compared to PC-Q07 I have. Come with adaptor to use sfx PSU. The number of openings on side panel is much smaller than those on PC-Q07. That will make them look better.

Cons: No way to install any case fan even using sfx PSU and Lain Li tried to make it look better and reduce the number of openings (holes) on side panel. The air intake won't be good.

Other Thoughts: Overall it is a small case with limited expansibility. No case fan, limited airflow. It is better to install CPU which TDP is less than 95W and reverse the CPU fan to suck the air into PSU fan. The space between hard disk and Video card is very small. Don't recommend to install Video card or high performance video card. If gaming and small are the goal, Silverstone SG-05 or SG-06 will be a better selection.

3 out of 5 eggsNot up to Lian Li's usual standards

Pros: Good price, decent size for mini itx systems

Cons: The quality of the case is not at the level I have come to expect from Lian Li; the frontside USB 3 ports are slightly askew, the screws of the case needed serious tools to be turned, the case feels flimsy and too thin.

Given the amount of space in the system, the design decision to route the frontside USB ports through a cable gate to the outside (instead of just adding a connector for USB3 frontside headers) is hard to understand.

The cutout for the slim form factor drive is useless; it would have been preferable to simply leave the case closed.

Mounting a 2.5" SSD in the top bay has issues with drive positioning (the drive is offset slightly from the end of the bay, so right-angle sata connectors are out of the question)

Other Thoughts: In retrospect, I'd have preferred the black version of the case, or really should have gone with the Q07.

Also, seeing the majority (2/3rds) of the case being taken up by powersupply and cabling drives home how far cases have yet to go. It's probably time for external power supplies.
