October 23, 2014, Keelung, Taiwan – Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd, today announces the brushed aluminum PC-Q26 mini-ITX chassis. Ideal for users who want to build their own NAS as well as system integrators, with its support of up to ten 3.5” drives, the PC-Q26 packs a lot of storage in a compact package.

Small Chassis with Vast Storage Support

With a volume around 32.3L, the PC-Q26 supports a vast amount of storage for its size. Up to eleven hard drives can be installed: ten 3.5” and one 2.5” drive. A hot-swap backplane for two 3.5” drives is included. Additional backplanes can be easily added. With the ever-expanding storage capacity of mechanical drives, this small and lightweight aluminum chassis provides vast storage potential for the home or small office.

Tool-Less Installations and Features

The PC-Q26 has pop-off side panels for simplified installations, upgrades and maintenance. Hard drives, 3.5” and 2.5”, can be tool-lessly mountedwith thumbscrews with rubber suspensions. Additionally, the expansion slots are secured by a single thumbscrew.

Efficient Thermal-Flow

Three front 120mm fans bring cool air into the chassis through side ventilation. Filters with magnets prevent dust and debris from entering the PC-Q26. A top 120mmm exhaust fan with a removable filter pulls hot, hardware damaging air out of the chassis.
More ventilation on the rear and side panel keep this positive pressure chassis at optimal operation temperatures. An 80mm fan can be installed on the rear panel.

Hardware Compatibility

The Lian Li PC-Q26 supports expansion cards up to 190mm (7.4”) and CPU coolers up to 150mm (5.9”). Power supplies up to 190mm (7.4”) sit elevated off the case floor on rubberized rails.
