The LIAN LI PC-Q16A is shorter, and smaller, but still easy to install and service -- the perfect balance of space and hardware performance.
Armed with durable aluminum, the LIAN LI PC-Q16A provides great cooling for your high-performance components. On top of that, the case comes equipped with a 140mm fan to input high air flow volume. Front I/O panel hosts two USB 3.0 ports.
The case offers space for one 3.5” drive and three 2.5” drives. It offers everything you need to build a great gaming system today and expandability for some time to come!
Pros: Quality, compact.
Cons: The idea of routing the front usb ports through the case and to the back panel is a really terrible idea, but fortunately can be easily fixed by part # sst-cp09, which will adapt the two male usb connectors to plug into the internal motherboard usb3.0 header.
Other Thoughts: I removed the internal 2.5" HDD 3-slot bay, but recycled the screws and rubber spacers to make the 3.5" drive bay above it a bit nicer, by giving it the ability to really easily swap a drive out. You will likely find the 2.5" drive bay to be too low to your motherboard. Check out the heatsink COOLER MASTER GeminII M4 RR-GMM4-16PK-R2. It is one of few that will fit inside this case while offering maximum performance--I had to remove the fan so it would fit, but it doesn't need the fan, anyway. Just line it up so that the vanes go with the flow of air from front to back. Also, eureka hepa filter style HF2 can be bungee-corded across the front to keep free of dust bunnies. has a quality power supply. Really quite pleased.
