Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd, the award-winning aluminum computer chassis manufacturer, today announces the automobile-esque PC-Q15. With its space-saving design, the PC-Q15 is an ideal data storage center for the numerous hi-tech mobile devices of the modern mobile consumer.

Supporting mini-ITX motherboards, the PC-Q15 with its the rectangular shape and wheel-like stubs resembles a miniature SUV. Not only does this chassis stand out in any environment, but the compact dimensions of (W x H x D) 210 mm x 216 mm x 330 mm (8.27" x 8.50" x 12.99") allows the PC-Q15 to serve as the home central hub for the modern mobile user in any nook or cranny.





With optical drive support and multiple HDD/SSD drive bays, the PC-Q15 gives users numerous options for data storage. The forward facing 5.25" drive bay is at the top on the chassis with the 3.5" and 2.5" drive bays hanging below it. The hot-swappable 3.5" HDD is aided by perfectly sized rubber strips that are effortlessly attach to the side of your 3.5" drive, allowing you to easily take your HDD in and out. Hanging below the 3.5" drive, the 2.5" drive bay holds three 2.5" HDDs/SSDs and can be adjusted to face the front or side.

Adding to the PC-Q15's unique design, the motherboard plate lays flat against the bottom of the chassis. A prerouted cable simplifies connections between the motherboard and the the two USB 3.0 ports on the front panel. Keeping your system at optimum running temperatures, the included 120 mm fan with Lian Li's signature removable washable filter blows cool air directly across the motherboard and 2.5" SSDs.

Making the most out of every available space, the compact PC-Q15 supports VGA cards up to 250 mm (9.84") in length and CPU coolers with a height of up to 90 mm (3.54"). The included 300 W power supply with 80-Plus efficiency sits at the top rear of the chassis providing power to your components.

Wheel-like stubs with rubber strips not only keep the this chassis elevated, but also reduces vibrations to a minimum. As to be expected from Lian Li, the PC-Q15 is completely constructed from aluminum, and features pop-off panels for easy access to your system.

The Lian Li PC-Q15 is available in silver and back for the suggested retail price of US$179 / €179.

That is expensive. I'd rather be better off with a CM HAF 912!

Hahaha, I need to push it across the office floor, it is just too darn big to pick up. Some of the folks at Lian Li must have a lot of spare time. You have to admit it’s very cute, with that smile under the grill.:D

Wow, the new design team in Lian Li is really trying to earn reputation. Since their introduction some crazy stuff is coming out of Lian Li. Nice to see they have the balls. That's what I call to reinvent one's company. Keep going!

It's for iTX :wtf:

No he means if you wish to use a dual slot card like a 7970 or a 580 or most anything, you can't because there is only 1 PCI bracket slot, so a lot of cards will not work, in this case which is dumb especially for what they expect you to pay for this garbage on wheels.

That's a moot point, for $175 it should be 2 brackets!

Agreed...but just saying there is a solution for everything. Would I buy this case...no...if it wasless than $100 maybe
