We’ve seen some unorthodox Lian Li’s concept in the form of sea shell and billowing sail, those were standard size PC cases; their latest creation, PC-Q07, takes on Mini-ATX platform with oversized chassis to accommodate traditional full sized components.
The new Lian-Li hairline-brushed all aluminum Mini-ITX stands at 11-inch tall. Its mini fridge like design is rather unconventional, not eye pleasing in any ways, but internal space is roomy for the support of full size components. The Mini-ITX board fits on the side panel while the back has mounting brackets readied for a full size ATX PSU. Unit comes supplied with easy installation kits to allow a 5.25-inch optical drive, and a pair of 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch hdd mount effortlessly with anti-vibration grommets and tool-less mounting screws on the system.
The Lian Li PC-Q07 is available now for a suggested retail of $69.
