Lian Li continues their small form factor line-up with a new space efficient addition, the PCQ10WX. It is a mini-ITX chassis built from the usual brushed-aluminium we are used to from Lian Li, but this time it comes with a transparent wall made from acrylic. After all, just because you are building a small rig, doesn’t mean that you don’t want to show it off.
The Lian Li PCQ10WX offers plenty of space for your hardware despite its small measurements of 207 x 277 x 335 mm. You can add up to two 3.5-inch or three 2.5-inch drives as well as a slim optical disc drive. If you shouldn’t need the ODD, you can another 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch driver instead.
The chassis supports default sized ATX power supplies with a length of up to 150mm, so there is no need to opt for an SFX PSU here. Dual-slot graphics cards with up to 270mm and CPU coolers up to 140mm are also supported.
There is even space for a 240mm radiator at the top of the chassis and you can mount a 120mm at the rear. That should allow for plenty of cooling, even for high-end gaming rigs. And with the small size and a weight of just 2.3KG, it’s also highly portable.
The PC-Q10WX will be available for £109.90 in the UK at early October at Overclockers. That is a pretty hefty price for such a small chassis and whether its worth it to you or not is down to personal preference, taste, and wealth.
