Lian Li Industrial Co. Ltd is proud to announce the new small form factor PC-Q38 Mini-ITX chassis, a new case that focuses on performance per liter and offers liquid-cooling potential for those that find the PC-Q37 too big for their needs. The PC-Q38 has a windowed side panel, with Lian Li’s patented rivet locking system, this allows for a great look inside the PC-Q38 and easy access when needed. The PC-Q38 comes with double USB 3.0 and HD Audio jacks on the front panel connector, the location of the ports make it easy to hide them from normal view when the PC-Q38 is placed on its side, or sued as a regular desktop.
The PC-Q38 features Lian Li’s famous Aluminium materials, where the straight lines of the brushed Aluminium are combined with the rounded corners of Lian Li’s new style direction. The panels are kept at 2-millimeter thickness for good rigidity and light weight, while the internal Aluminium structure can handle any load that can be placed inside it. Visually, the PC-Q38 looks gorgeous and little details, such as the diamond-cut line in the front panel enhance that feeling.
The PC-Q38 is extremely flexible despite its diminutive size. First, the rubber-padded Aluminium fit can easily convert the PC-Q38 from a tower to a desktop, which is more suitable for Home Theater PC use. An optional bracket can be used to allow a choice between SFX and ATX PSU’s in the PC-Q38. This means anyone looking to switch to Mini-ITX doesn’t require a new PSU, or if your build is extremely powerful, an equally potent ATX PSU is easier to find. This versatility is what makes building a powerful PC-Q38 a rewarding accomplisment.
