    Aluminum case specialist Lian-Li's mini-ITX motherboard lineup for CES included the PC-Q27, PC-Q28, and PC-Q30 (pictured in that order). The PC-Q27, the smallest of the lot, measures 200 x 321 x 240 mm (WxHxD), and packs just enough room for two 3.5-inch drive bays that can hold 2.5-inch drives, in addition to a 5.25-inch bay. The lone cooling fan is a 120 mm front intake.

    Moving on, the PC-Q28, which measures 225 x 305 x 345 mm, is a little more generous to the storage-conscious, with room for six 3.5-inch bays which each convert to 2.5-inch, in addition to a 5.25-inch bay. Ventilation includes a 120 mm front intake, and a 140 mm top exhaust. Lastly, there's the PC-Q30, in which Lian-Li's designers's took off on their usual fungal trip. It features a large front acrylic window, through which you get a God's-eye view of the motherboard tray, and whatever you have running on it. The Q30 measures 200 x 327 x 248 mm, lacks 5.25-inch bays, but features three 2.5-inch bays, and a 120 mm rear fan.

    You know what's funny about these mITX cases with so much room for drives is that few of the boards I've seen can facilitate more than 4 drives.

    I guess you can use an expansion card but.......

    Would be better if they put the motherboard flat on the bottom, psu in the top, lose the 5.25, and mount the drives to front of the case.

    2x 2.5 and 1x 3.5 should do it.

    I am curious what this case is all about? Very different in terms of the ITX form factor by Lian-Li.
