Lian Li PC-Q11 Mini-ITX Review



I would like to thank Lian Li and CaseKing for the review sample.

Lian Li is updating their successful Q series of ultra compact enclosures with the PC-Q11. All cases in this line are based on the ITX standard and usually allow the use of a full size ATX power supply and standard optical drive. The Q11 is based on the same format as the Q07, but has been changed a bit internally. Instead of a having a single hard drive bay in the chassis, you can now fit four. As with many Lian Li cases, this one is also available in black, silver, red. A white version is also in the works and should hit retail in October.

The small case ships in a very compact cardboard box in the traditional Lian Li design. Both larger panels have an image of the Q11 itself in combination with a few highlights. It looks like the package is marked properly after packaging, so that the potential buyer always knows which color is inside. Turning the box and taking a look at the sides - both of which are identical once again - the four color possibilities are shown, along with a list of detailed specifications. Lian Li has chosen to use Styrofoam spacers to hold the case in place and has placed the Q11 in a heavy duty plastic bag for further protection.


You will receive all the screws sorted into different bags, along with a PCI slot cover to allow the routing of the internal USB 3.0 cables out the back of the mainboard. For those who want to use USB 2.0, an adapter to connect the two leads to a standard mainboard header is also part of the package. A single sheet manual and another with an overview of what is currently available from Lian Li can be found within the plastic bag of the chassis.
