Lian Li Introduces the Fanless Micro-ITX PC-Q04 PC Chassis

Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd announces the PC-Q04 Mini Tower Chassis for Mini-ITX systems. While not the smallest chassis Lian Li offers, this case gives builders a bit more breathing room without compromising its compact size. The enhanced vents are designed to mitigate any vibration or noise from case fans and maximize the cooling performance of the internal components themselves. The PC-Q04 employs both its floor and roof space for drive mounting, doing away with externally facing bays for improved airflow.

One of the biggest features of the PC-Q04 is its vents - they are the only things that could be described as "big" on this case. The large side vent lets the PSU draw and vent out its own air to work as efficiently as possible. Meanwhile, the bottom left and right vents as well as the entire floor panel allow the GPU to take in air as needed while giving the CPU enough room to breath. The rear panel is another large vent to let warm air escape. Tall rubber feet prevent vibrations and suspend the case to let air flow readily through the bottom vent.
