Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd, the award-winning aluminum computer chassis manufacturer, today announces two new additions to the Q Series - PC-Q12 and PC-Q18. With the release of these two compact chassis, Lian Li gives even more options to PC builders who need elegant-looking space-saving cases with high data storage capabilities.

Designed to be central data center for the numerous hi-tech devices such as smart phones and tablets of the modern mobile consumer, the PC-Q12 and PC-Q18 both support mini-ITX motherboards. Not only do these cases have a compact design, but they also have the features that are to be expected from Lian Li, including: elegant brushed anodized aluminum frames, easy-to-remove snap-off panels, and USB 3.0 connectivity on the front panel.

too bad Lian-Li still designs Storage cases with a 5.25" bay, no-one really needs optical media any more, just a waste of space on the Q18.
other than that - they make the perfect cases for a NAS, would like to see other vendors compete in that area.

^ The 5.25" bay is for a 2.5" hotswap enclosure, or WC reservoir :)

Just looking at the Q12 makes me want to build a system with it. Come on Trinity!

As usual with Lian-Li the pricing for these cases is way out of whack! These cases shouldn't be $100 let alone $160 .. . just sad how poorly these are priced!:shadedshu
