LIAN LI PC-Q02 Mini ITX Case

Article Index:

Taking a Look Inside

The smooth aluminum side panels are easily removed with a tug on the small tab at the back of the case. Both side of the case are built this way for quick access to the inside of the PC-Q02.

Much like it’s bigger brother that we reviewed, the Lian Li PC-V700, the PC-Q02 use a series of pins attached to the panels and latches embedded in to the edge of the case used to securely hold the panels in place, and I mean securely.

Above is a quick over view on LIAN LI thoughts on how the air flow works and the options you have on installing hard drive in the PC-Q02.

At this point we get a better look at the power supply this comes with the PC-Q02. Good thing as it will save you a lot of time trying to find one that will fit in this super small case.

 The power produced for the case is a FSP 300-60GHS.The FSP300-60GHS is a 300 watt micro atx power supply with a 80 PLUS efficiency rating. This little power supply has dual 12V rails, 24 pin main connector, 4 pin 12v, 4 pin Molex, 4 pin floppy, and 4 SATA connectors.

When you remove the right side panel you gain access to the motherboard tray which is removable… thank goodness.

  1. Sorry, but it’s full of ‘nearly, but not quite’. That ODD should be mounted vertically to leave the top free for mounting something like a Corsair H60.

    And that SFX PSU needs to be replaced by a 450W one to power a decent GPU. For a HTPC, you want something like the Q25 – one of the models with a rack of internal drive bays – but not the actual Q25 as it lacks an ODD.

  2. WOZ OING TO BUY as nice n compact but wtf no pci sslot at all so no external gfx card of any sort. next one up fo me i thin,
