    Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd has launched the PC-Q07 Mini-ITX chassis. The black hairline-brushed all aluminum PC-Q07 allows for the Mini-ITX platform motherboard to be combined with traditional full sized components, thus saving you money and giving you the option to utilize components from a system you already have. Designed to be passively cooled, with strategically placed innovative air vents make it both silent and safe. The small chassis can fit snugly in any environment. The PC-Q07 is definitely worth serious consideration for building the ultimate ITX platform. Ideal for System Integrators looking for money saving, high quality solutions.

    PC- Q07 Mini-ITX Specifications
    Standing at 193mm x 280mm x 208mm (W,H,D), the aluminum chassis has a reversible PSU bracket which allows the PSU to be arranged as you like. The chassis supports 1x 5.25” Optical drive bay with 1x 3.5” HDD bay and 1x 2.5” HDD bay. In addition, strategically placed air vents enable passive cooling to effectively keep your system optimal. The entire case weighs in at 1.1kg’s.

    PC-Q07 Special Features
    The PC-Q07 has easy installation kits for the 5.25” optical drives, as well as for the 1x 3.5” HDD bays with anti-vibration kits, as well as room for a 2.5” drive underneath. The internal space is ideally arranged to keep everything well ventilated without compromising on your hardware thermal requirements. The small profile, incorporating traditional desktop components within the ITX platform makes the PC-Q07 the most attractive and innovative ITX chassis available.

    Perfect for System Integrators (SI)
    The benefit to use full size ATX power components coupled with the Mini-ITX platform makes this unique innovative chassis ideal for those system integrators looking to design a small profile, yet advanced system for their customers. The expense of slim ODD and an ITX PSU or external PSU is completely negated. In addition replacement components can be sourced from standard stocks, without the need to build up a special replacement inventory.

    Traditional Durability
    The classical style and functional design is the Lian Li goal. The essence of Lian Li products is the craftsmanship of the engineering. Intrinsic to the workmanship and quality is the customization which includes a whole host of optional extras that can be purchased to add more features to an already feature rich product.

    Highlights for PC-Q07
    • Supports Mini-ITX motherboards
    • Supports full size ATX Power supply
    • Supports 70mm high CPU cooler
    • Supports full sized ODD
    • Specialized air vents for passive cooling solution

    I love the pic in the middle, let me narrate it.

    Hehe, i guess this is the fault of some stupid marketing people, but very funny indeed. But i think i would want one for a HTPC, only if ION will be expensive.

    Ohhh! Imagine this LAN-box:

    Lian Li PC-Q07
    LV-678 Motherboard
    E8500 C2D
    4 GB RAM
    HD4850
    Corsair HX520 (need modular in such a cramped space)

    Doable without any modding!
    Yum yum!

    Good luck finding a 8in long 4850...;) 4850's are about ~9.75in

    Also, I am personally waiting for this board. http://www.zotac.com/index.php?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=419

    Next rig I am building is a pocket gaming rig. :rockout:

    Edit: I found a 4830 that should fit... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814140099

    that is a sweet lookin graphics card but i doubt you could really do any real gaming with it. unless you want to play games that are 3+ years old at low res settings. dont get me wrong, plenty of awesome older games out there but im not sure how worth it would be for a pocket gaming rig.

    Sure you can! Isnt the 4830 pretty similar in performance to the 3870? And that is still a fine GPU for modern games, even if all effects arent dialled up.

    ***

    BTW, nice case. I've built a few miniITX systems and you always compromise somewhere (in a somewhat major way). This box allows most of those compromises to be nixed. PS. You dont do miniITX for a high end gaming rig. You do it for "workstation" productivity use, or, build your own server/NAS.

    Getting a full PSU in there is great. No more silly little PSU's or laptop power boxes. And it can be used to provide all the nec. cooling.

    what you talking about ;). the 4830 is a pretty powerful card that can play todays games. for my pocket rig, i am thinking about a low profile 9800gt and that zotac board

    I have this as my gaming PC now, zero mods to the case managed to fit:

    Zotac ITX 9300 WIFI I-E
    Q6600 B0 (does overclock to 3ghz but stays stock for now)
    Thermalright AX-140 (passive)
    4GB OCZ SLI 800mhz
    Asus Radeon 5750 1GB
    WD 2'5 320GB Scorpio Black
    BluRay DVD-ROM
    Antec 650 SLI PSU...

    Very cramped on space inside but with some clever modding to the guts the temps are totally fine. Airflow is actually controlled only by the PSU fan, I have no other fans running in the case save for the GFX card's.

    CPU idles at 34c, load 59c
    GPU idles at 41c, load 58c

    If I run on IGP I have a totally silent PC, bummer the Radeon fan is so noisy. Might passify it in the future since switching the fan speed of the GPU to 1% barely did anything to the temp.
