Accessories and Documentation




The pair of fans I removed both have dust filters installed on the side the mounting hardware is on. For the 140mm on the left, the intake side of the fan is filtered, while the 120 on the right is filtered on the exhaust side. Both fans are powered via a 3-pin connection, and have 3-pin to Molex adapters on them from Lian Li.




You may remember this piece from when we first opened the chassis. It is intended to either mount two 3.5" hard drives going left to right with the eight holes in the middle. The twelve holes around the outer edges, top and bottom, are to allow you to optionally install up to three 2.5" drives facing front to back.




In the white box that was so elegantly strapped to the bays, you will find this assortment of hardware and goodies. The ten plastic components on the left are to use with 3.5" drives to use with the five hot swap bays. I will show you those mounted as well. The bag full of screws in the middle contains all the hard drive mounting screws for 3.5" drives you will ever need. The bag at the top right has the PSU, motherboard, and 2.5" drive screws. The bag at the bottom has rubber grommets for 2.6" drives, a pair of wire ties, and a speaker. I do miss the plastic sorter I have gotten with my last few Lian Li cases though!




Instructions come in two sets. There is the native version to the left, and to the right is a fold out version of the same instructions in various languages. Really everything you are going to need to know are shown in here except for the same things missing from the specifications, the length of compatible power supplies, or the maximum height of a cooler.




Along with the instructions you also get a full color brochure that covers any sort of adapter or accessory you may not have thought of when buying the PC-Q25. If you do have a need when building this chassis, I'm sure there is something on one or the other side of this that will solve you issues.




I went ahead and installed the slides on the hard drives. Typically this used to have rubber grommets with a groove in them under the thumbscrews. This design uses a plastic rail to slide in and out against the aluminum rails.
