Lian Li Outs ASUS ROG-Certified PC-Q17 Mini-ITX Case

Lian Li released the PC-Q17, an ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) co-branded, mini-ITX tower-type case, designed to go well with the ROG Maximus Impact line of premium mini-ITX motherboards. The case retains the sharp-edge design language of the ROG brand, with a sloped brushed-aluminium front, a trapezoid side-profile, and a faux-sloped rear panel. The side is characterized with a large acrylic window held to the case by four thumb-screws, which doubles up as the overall side-panel. A large, glowing ROG logo decks up its unique drive/PSU cage.

The PC-Q17 features a unique drive-bay arrangement, with a front drive bay that’s arranged along the front panel, opening up to the top. This can be used to house either a slot-in type slimline optical drive, a 3.5-inch drive, or a 2.5-inch drive. Behind it, where you’d normally expect a stack of 3.5-inch bays, is the ATX-type PSU bay, with an AC cord leading to the rear panel AC receptacle. Behind this PSU bay are two 2.5-inch drive mounts. Two additional 3.5-inch mounts along the bottom panel of the case complete its drive bay loadout.

The motherboard tray has a large cutout behind it, letting you deal with CPU coolers with back-plates; and a 2-slot expansion card area, with clearance for graphics cards as long as 27 cm (GTX 980 STRIX is 28 cm long and GTX 980 Ti STRIX is 30.5 cm long, FYI), CPU coolers as tall as 14 cm, and PSUs as long as 15 cm. The cooling system is equally unique. The detachable top panel has two keyhole-shaped cutouts, so you can install an external 240 mm x 120 mm radiator without detaching the tubing (should be a boon for AIO solutions). Front-panel connectivity includes two USB 3.0 ports. Measuring 201 mm x 407 mm x 276 mm (WxDxH), the case weighs 2.7 kg. The company didn’t announce pricing or availability.
