Lian Li Announces PC-Q19 Brushed Aluminum Mini-ITX Chassis

Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd today announces a new brushed aluminum Mini-ITX chassis designed for HTPC and office use - PC-Q19. An update of the slim profile PC-Q12, the PC-Q19 adds VGA support thanks to the included riser card as well as additional storage support.

The 22L PC-Q19 has a slim profile of 160mm (6.2"), and supports the essential hardware for those looking for a sleek build for the home or office. This aluminum chassis can support up to three 2.5" drives and 1 3.5" drive. A VGA card up to 12.81 cm can sit in the middle of the chassis thanks to the included riser card and adds graphics power to the build. The PC-Q19 supports SFX power supplies, and extension cables may be needed for some PSU models.

Vertical or Horizontal
The PC-Q19 can be positioned horizontally or vertically, depending on the user's preference. When in the horizontal position, four rubberized feet are included to minimize vibrations. For those that prefer the PC-Q19 to be in the vertical position, a stand with rubberized grips secures the chassis into place.

Tool-Less Features
The pop-off side panels allows DIY builders to easily access the chassis for installations and upgrades. Magnetically attached filters prevents dust from entering in through the ventilation. Behind one of the filters is a 120mm fan, that can be removed by taking out 2 screws.

Connectivity
The front of the PC-Q19 sports two USB 3.0 ports and a dual-illuminated power button.

Price and Availability
The PC-Q19 will be available by the end of August for the suggested retail price of USD149 at Newegg.

Odd. They normally screw something up but this seems decent, even has magnetic filters. Now we just need some silent SFX units.

It looks promising for more than HTPC. With a 150 bucks MRSP though is above my personal budget. I wish someone would just license the design an make it from SECC steal, so other people can enjoy it too.

This is a neat design, I wonder if it can be laid flat without blocking vents.
This also answers the question of where all those motherboards with no i/o shield come from.

This case looks great! It would do a handsome office PC, or even a Steambox.

The listed/announced dimensions actually include the base. The case itself is more like 105 x 255 x 470 = 12.5lt. Awesome! :)

I am actually impressed with the specs and look of this case, could be a pretty cool portable machine with plenty of room.

I agree with you, but there are a lot of people who don't mind paying for premium quality. even I would personally love to have a small mini-itx based gaming system inside this case. but that 150$ is too high.

Would give it a 9 if they designated vents near the gpu.

I disagree, the RVZ01/ML07 can fit long graphics card like Titan BE, 780Ti, R9 290X easily, this one can't.
And if you put a 600W SFX PSU inside and mod the RVZ01/ML07, you can fit in a Titan Z.

Pretty pointless when it still functions like any desktop out there, with 3x the restrictions.

Its still small, portable, and this one spaces components well to the point to keep heat separated out which is a win to me. Lots of people prefer things to be small for many different reasons.

how can you connect that GPU to the motherboard?

It uses a PCI-E Riser/Adapter.

As is usual though for Lian the airflow makes no sense. They have that 120 exhausting through a filter, and did the same with the cpu cooler in the promo shots, but that would make some sense if they just switched the top fan to intake.

The ml07 felt cheap and plasticky which was a massive disappointment to me after I bought one, this one looks a bit more quality. I agree about it fitting an 290X as a consideration though
