Lian Li has a new case in its stable: the PC-Q37 for the Mini-ITX market. The case features an aluminium construction and comes with a front and side window made from tempered glass. It measures 237mm x 345mm x 346mm (W x H x D), weighs 5.25kg and has a dual-chamber design that separates the motherboard and GPU section from the HDD and PSU unit.
The interior fits a SFX/SFX-L form factor PSU with a maximum length of 220mm and has room for a video card with a maximum length of 320mm. You can mount up to two 3.5" HDDs and two 2.5" SSDs but there's no support for external 5.25" devices.
Despite a price tag of $229, the PC-Q37 doesn't ship with any fans but the case has room for up to two 80mm rear fans and two 120mm bottom fans or one 140mm bottom fan. Furthermore, Lian Li claims the case has enough room to accommodate 120mm radiators up to 300mm long and 80mm thick.
The exterior adopts Lian Li's traditional clean style and the front features two USB 3.0 ports and HD audio ports.
Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd is happy to announce the PC-Q37: a dual-chambered mini-ITX case with large tempered glass front and side panels. This latest chassis fuses the best of the Q-series and O-series for a new standard in small form factor PC cases. The PC-Q37 is meant to look great on desks without taking too much space.
Dual-Chambered Advantages, Small Form Factor Size
Like its big brothers the PC-O9 and PC-O10, the PC-Q37 is split into two compartments to make tidy builds a breeze. The main compartment mounts the motherboard, expansion cards, and cooling equipment; the back compartment hides the PSU and drive racks. This layout allows builders to highlight their best bits with oversized tempered glass, while effortlessly keeping wires and unsightly components tucked away.
Designed for High-end Enthusiast Builds
The PC-Q37 is a mini tower supporting Mini-ITX motherboards. Despite its compact size, it accommodates the largest VGA cards as long as 320mm on its two expansion slots. Users can install CPU coolers up to 130mm tall and PSUs as long as 220mm. The main compartment can house up to four 120mm fans on the top and bottom panels for an efficient bottom-to-top airflow or, alternatively, a radiator fitting 300mm x 120mm x 80mm. Why have big beautiful sheets of glass if there’s nothing exciting to show inside?
Ample Drive Storage and Premium Build Quality
The back compartment hides a rubber vibration-dampening drive rack supporting one 2.5” and two 3.5” drives. The front IO panel includes two USB 3.0 and HD audio ports, with headers tucked aside in the PSU and drive compartment, keeping the main compartment unfettered and wire-free at the get-go. Like the O-series, the PC-Q37 features an all-aluminum and tempered glass construction with removable, washable mesh filters on the fan intake mounts.
