    Lian Li Industrial Co. Ltd Ltd, announces yet another Mini-Q series – PC-Q08, after the successful launch of PC-Q07 last year. With increased case depth and removable lower HDD cage, the PC-Q08 offers more room to fit full size graphics cards. For power users who require maximum video performance, Lian Li’s Mini-Q PC-Q08 is the solution.

    The dimensions of PC-Q08 stand at 227mm x 272mm x 345mm (W.H.D) at only 2.73kg weight. This mini-tower chassis supports Mini-ITX or Mini-DTX motherboards. For future upgradability concern, the PC-Q08 is designed to use only standard PC components: standard 5.25” optical drive, standard 3.5” hard drives, standard ATX PS/2 power supply units and standard graphics cards. The Mini-Q PC-Q08 is available in red, black and silver colors.

    User Friendly & Upgrading Design
    Differently from the previous PC-Q07, the PC-Q08 is deeper in size with the modular lower HDD mounting cage being removable, allowing users to easily add in graphic cards up to maximum size of 300mm. Alternatively, the modular cage supports up to six 3.5" HDDs for users requiring lot of storage space.

    Complete Thermal Solutions
    The power supply is mounted vertically using a back plate offering the option for using the PSU fan exhaust for improved passive cooling of the motherboard and processor or turning the fan outwards if the motherboard is installed with CPU cooler. There are 140mm and 120mm intake LED fans on the front and top of Mini-Q PC-Q08, respectively, to offer additional air flow with lower RPM to remove the systems heat fast. Furthermore, there are vent holes at the rear and bottom of the case, as well as next to the rear PCI slots for additional air flow.

    Highlights for PC-Q08A / PC-Q08B / PC-Q08R:
    • Supports Mini-ITX / Mini-DTX motherboards
    • 300mm space for graphics cards
    • Up to six standard 3.5” hard drives
    • USB 3.0 multi-media I/O ports
    • Standard ATX PS/2 power supply units
    • LED Cooling fans: 140mm on the front; 120mm on the top
    • Availability: Arriving at local distributors end of May
    • MSRP: US$149+local VAT for PC-Q08A/B (silver/black), and US$185+local VAT for PC-Q08R (red)
    DrunkenMafia and [Ion] say thanks.

    It's like the SG-05/SG06, but better. Nice job Lian Li, much more realistic than the PC-Q06! :toast:

    These cases would make great LAN rigs! The seem to be an evolution on the PC-Q07.

    I like the Lian-Li because it can take a real power suppply. The 300w power supply on the Silverstone case kind of kills it for any serious machine, and forget about using any real graphics card in it.

    You can pack something like a Corsair H50 easily into one of these too. This would make a very fun little build.

    Corsiar H50 combined with one of those H55 based ITX and one GTX470 or HD5850 (I don't know if HD5870 will fit) you can have a hell of SFF... :rockout:

    Indeed it has a better design than v531...
    so they can make it bit higher (to be able to have 4 slots) and also they can increase the front intake fan to accommodate also 140mm fan...
