Lian Li Announces PC-Q39 Tempered Glass Mini-ITX Tower

Lian Li Industrial Co. Ltd is delighted to present the new PC-Q39 WX Mini-ITX mini tower chassis. The PC-Q39 is an evolution of the PC-Q37 and allows the use of ATX power supplies as well as triple slot graphics cards in a mini-ITX chassis. Internally, dedicated grommets for liquid cooling tubing have been placed in order to move reservoir and pumps to the wider secondary chamber. This enables motherboard, graphics card, and other main components to shine behind the tempered glass panel. Furthermore, the front panel has been upgraded and now features an USB 3.1 Type-C connector.

The PC-Q39 continues the traditional Lian Li design with dual chambers for extremely clean builds. The main compartment houses the Mini-ITX motherboard and graphics cards up to 320mm in length, while the second compartment has a tool-less drive rack for two 3.5" and one 2.5" drives, there is another one 2.5"in the back, and one on the motherboard tray, totally three 2.5" drives. An ATX PSU up to 160mm in length and optional liquid cooling reservoir or pump. Two grommet holes in the motherboard allow liquid cooling tubing to pass between chambers. Five holes in the motherboard tray allow cabling to pass from the main to the secondary chamber for clean designs.
Mini-ITX with support for 240mm radiators
The PC-Q39 is slightly bigger than the PC-Q37 which allows it to house bigger components, like a full-size ATX PSU as well as triple slot graphics cards. Besides space for a 240mm radiator at the top, the bottom can also house two 120mm fans or a 140mm fan. All fan mounting points are covered by magnetically attached dust filters for easy cleaning and maintenance, while the front, top, and side-panels are easily removable thanks to Lian Li's patented rivet system.

Price and Availability
The PC-Q39 is available at the Newegg.com for USD $209.99.

Too fat.
Also too ugly. The front just looks weird, and the glass doesn't help. Just a box with a few fins tacked on in front, their attempt at style? No thanks...

Lian Li have gone insane long time ago. Everything they do looks ugly and unfinished, or over engineered. There is no elegance or simplicity, just drilled holes everywhere.... oh and that 90 on the back....

Learn from Jonsbo, Lian Li, watch and learn...

Lian Li doesnt use plastic or artificial fillers and flavoring. They have always been a high priced case and usually ALL Aluminum. I'd bet a mid-tower version would be $100 bucks more.

which is an absolute waste. steel internals are much better when it comes to acoustics and durability. one of the reasons why such a case from jonsbo will cost 120-150

this is just plain stupid. They build only 3 I/O slots for expansion cards instead of adding a 4th one, making the case just 1.3cm taller, but adding mATX compatibility.

Personally I don't like mITX boards because of their severely limited expandability. Sometimes it's useful to have the ability of adding a sound card, wlan card, gigabit lan card or a PCI-E to M2 card, or any combination of the above. the mITX form factor is severely limited in that regard, but mATX allows for up to 2 such devices alongside a dual slot graphics card.

Shame.
