Lian Li Launches The Full-Access, Yet Petite, PC-Q34

May 4, 2016, Keelung, Taiwan - Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd announces the PC- Q34, its latest small form factor (SFF) Q-series case. Like the PC-V33 and PC-Q33, this mini ITX chassis includes a flip-open canopy for easy access to components. Builders no longer need to squeeze hands and fingers into tight, out-of-reach spaces. The PC-Q34 comes in four colors – silver, black, red, and gold.

Test-bench Style Access – No Cramped Building

After removing the snap-on/off side panels by removing two thumbscrews on the back panel, users can swing the canopy open along a hinge in the front. This gets the top and front panels out of the way for easy building and maintenance. Many small form factor (SFF) cases are notorious for being troublesome to build; choosing the PC-Q34 is a good way to preempt these headaches.

Powerful Builds in a Tiny Case

The PC-Q34 supports ATX PSUs as long as 180mm. The PSU mounts on a rubber vibration dampener along the bottom panel, along with a removable drive bay fitting two 3.5” drives or one 3.5” and one 2.5” drive. The front panel also includes mounts for one 2.5” and one 3.5” drive – all together, a total of four possible drives. Motherboards are installed horizontally on a panel above the PSU, leaving plenty of room for CPU coolers up to 180mm tall and VGA cards 220mm long. It includes two expansion slots and supports Mini-ITX and Mini-DTX motherboards, while weighing only 1.85Kg.

Effective Cooling without the Fans

The PC-Q34 does not include a fan, but can optionally mount a 120mm fan on the back panel. It instead includes large vents on both side panels and emphasizes natural convection for cooling. The thermal design positions the PSU to recycle its own air, while accommodating a large CPU cooler and VGA card that breath well on their own through the spacious side vents. It’s minimal, simple, and elegant for SFF enthusiasts and beginners alike.
