Lian Li PC-Q25 Mini-Q SFF Chassis Review

The Lian Li PC-Q25 Mini-Q SFF Chassis




The front of the PC-Q25 is simply, well, black! With no external drive bays, and just the power button and name plate to distract the eye, you are left looking at a lot of hairline brushed, anodized black aluminum. If the chassis sits high enough, you can just see the natural aluminum feet poking out from underneath.




There is an intake fan in the front of the case. It draws air from the slots on the side and allows the front to keep a sleek and stylish, but simple case to look at. The side panels snap on and off, and are cut to lie over the frame and the edges are exposed from these panels on all sides.




Around the other side, you can see it has a matching set of grill work to allow fresh air into the PC-Q25. The back of the chassis has room for the rear I/O and two expansion slots with vented covers. The large hole is to slide in a power supply over the cooler of your motherboard, so keep this in mind when selecting a cooler.




The top of the chassis supports a 120mm fan under it, and to allow it to breathe, Lian Li has matched the top venting to the sides with more angled slots cut in the aluminum.




Under the chassis there are the four large plastic feet with rubber rings to keep the chassis in place and protect what it sits on. In the middle is an area with little round holes cut into the aluminum to allow the flow of air through the bottom of the case. To keep things clean inside, there is a clip on filter to keep dust on the outside.




This is what I mean when I said the doors pop on and off. There is a pin and catch system employed in the PC-Q25. With eight pins on each panel and corresponding plastic "catches" the door just pulls off and snaps back on.
