Lian Li has announced two new cases that will be part of the Q Series, the PC-Q12 and PC-Q18. Both cases are designed around the small form factor mini-ITX motherboards. The PC-Q12 can hold four 2.5" hard drives while having dimensions of just 3.46” x 14.37” x 8.19”. The small dimensions do limit other areas, and video cards and internal optical drives are a no go. However, an external slim optical drive can be clipped to the back of the case. A 300W 80-Plus PSU and 80mm fan are included. The case will be available in both black and silver and will have an MSRP of $159.99.
The PC-Q18 features four hot swappable 3.5" hard drive bays and a bottom cage capable of holding an additional two 3.5" or three 2.5" drives. The PC-Q18 is larger than the PC-Q12, at 7.83” x 11.42” x 14.37”, and is able to hold a bit more hardware as a result. A single 5.25" slot is available, and video cards up to 13.39" in length will also fit. A CPU cooler up to 6.3" will add to the cooling power of the two included 140mm fans. The PC-Q18 is also available in both black and silver and shares an MSRP of $159.99.
