    Lian Li today announces three new brushed aluminum cases, PC-Q02, PC-Q03, and PC-Q16, designed for modern users who need a compact central storage hub to share information among all their latest generation mobile devices.

    The Lian Li PC-Q02, PC-Q03, and PC-Q16 take advantage of the increasing efficiency of small form factor motherboards and progressively cheaper hard drives, and are able to hold the essential storage hardware in a small form factor. They also have high-quality features that are to be expected from Lian Li including: elegant brushed aluminum frames, easy-to-remove pop-off panels, USB 3.0 connectivity, rounded yet stable aluminum feet, as well as many tool-less features to make installations and upgrades easier. These three chassis also all have a dual LED power button which turns blue when on and glows red while reading.

    PC-Q02 – Minimalistic and Quiet Design for Personal Data Storage
    Supporting a mini-ITX motherboard, the PC-Q02's quiet fanless design gives users more room for their hardware while keeping the tiny dimensions of (WxHxD) 149 x 230 x 200mm (5.86” x 9.05” x 7.87”). While fanless, the PC-Q02 is designed to maximize the natural flow of air with vent holes located on the side and rear panels.

    This compact case has a 5.25” external bay on the front panel that can hold a slim optical drive or a 2.5” HDD thanks to easily installed slim ODD module. Inside the PC-Q02, the removable HDD tray on the floor on the chassis can support two 2.5” HDDs, or if the tray is removed a single 3.5” HDD can be installed.

    The PC-Q02 comes with a 300W 80 Plus certified SFX PSU included, and is available in two colors (Black or Silver) in selected countries and various vendors for the suggested retail price of $149.99.

    Product Features of PC-Q02:
    • Supports mini-ITX
    • Quiet fanless design
    • Slim ODD module for one slim ODD or 2.5” HDD
    • Removable HDD tray for two 2.5” HDDs or one 3.5” HDD
    • USB 3.0 x2 on the front panel
    • Easy-to-remove pop-off panels
    • 300W 80 Plus certified SFX PSU included
    • Available in the US and Canada at the end of May
    • MSRP: $149.99

    PC-Q03 – Tiny Fanless Chassis with Enhanced Graphics Capabilities
    The PC-Q03 supports either mini-ITX or mini-DTX motherboards, and has the slightly larger dimensions of (WxHxD) 199 x 245 x 210mm (7.83” x 9.64” x 8.26”). Similar to the PC-Q02 in respects to storage capacity and the quiet fanless design, the PC-Q03 differs by having the capabilities to hold a VGA card up to 180mm (7.08”) in length – for enhanced graphics. The PC-Q03 also has HD audio ports on the front panel in addition to the two USB 3.0 ports.

    The Lian Li PC-Q03 can hold a PSU up to 160mm (6.29”) in length, and comes with a PSU mounting bracket for Micro-ATX power supplies included.

    The PC-Q03 is available in two colors (Black or Silver) in selected countries and various vendors for the suggested retail price of $149.99.

    Product Features of PC-Q03:
    • Supports mini-ITX and mini-DTX
    • Quiet fanless design
    • Slim ODD module for one slim ODD or 2.5” HDD Four 3.5” HDD (Hotswap)
    • Removable HDD tray for two 2.5” HDDs or one 3.5” HDD
    • USB 3.0 x2 and HD audio on the front panel
    • Easy-to-remove pop-off panels

    PC-Q16 – Small Chassis with Impressive Storage
    The mini-ITX supporting PC-Q16 offers the most storage capacity of these three new Lian Li cases while still keeping the small footprint of (WxHxD) 199 x 160 x 290mm (7.83” x 6.29” x 11.41”) by sacrificing the 5.25” bay. The internal HDD bay located at the top front of the chassis can hold one 3.5” hard drive. A 1-bay to HDD SATA hot-swap backplane is optional.

    Hanging below this bay a removable HDD cage, using thumbscrews and rubber suspensions for reduced vibrations, can hold up to three 2.5” HDDs.

    To keep your hardware cool, a 140mm intake fan located at the front of the chassis blows cool air throughout the case.

    The PC-Q16 comes with a 300W 80 Plus certified SFX PSU included, and is available in two colors (Black or Silver) in selected countries and various vendors for the suggested retail price of $159.99.

    Product Features of PC-Q16:
    • Supports mini-ITX
    • One front 140mm intake fan
    • Holds one 3.5” HDD with optional hot-swappable backplane
    • Removable HDD cage for three 2.5” HDDs
    • USB 3.0 x2 on the front panel
    • Easy-to-remove pop-off panels
    • 300W 80 Plus certified SFX PSU included
    • Available in the US and Canada at the end of May
    • MSRP: $159.99

    The post does say the prices.

    Like them but would not get one due to lack of cooling ( exception to PQ-16 ). But i guess much better for those who just want to do simple stuff on a computer that's not going make much heat.

    Ah so it does and still translates to more than $200NZD.

    I intend to look for a 775skt Mini ITX board to make use of my Q6600 and DDR2 ram I have for a gaming server so it wouldn't be doing much else.
