Lian Li Q27 Mini-ITX case

q27_featured

Small computer cases for mini-ITX motherboards have been extremely popular the last few years. Once these types of systems could only house components with little power but these days you can build pretty competent and powerful systems regardless of the size of the case. The Lian li Q27 is such a case offering support both regular ATX power supplies as well as video cards up to 195 mm and cpu coolers up to 70 mm height.  It is a simple but stylish case that comes with USB3.0 support.

As expected from a Lian Li-case it is made from aluminum meaning it is light.  Since this still is a smaller case we cannot expect to fit tons of SSD and HDD-drives in there but we still can fit up to 3 3.5” HDD’s or 2 2.5” SSD’s in there. We get 2 USB3.0 ports on the case meaning that we do not have to sacrifice speed when connecting something there.

The case is available in both Silver and Black and it is the black version that we are testing today.

Summary : The Lian Li Q27 is yet another nice clean looking aluminium case from Lian Li. At around $70 (Newegg) it is relatively cheap and offers good features and performance for the money.

  1. There is PC-Q29 that has two PCI slots like PC-Q11. Its not even that much larger than PC-Q27, which is similiar to PC-Q07. The 5,25 bay is always good to have, maybe not for optical drive but some other devices or hard drives.
