It’s officially announced that Lian LI will be shipping its unique curved PC Q30 mini-ITX to UK by the end of July 2013. Not letting our expectations go down, constructed from brushed aluminum, PC-Q30 is certainly attention-grabbing device. It has a curved front and contains an acrylic window providing a top-down view of the rear-mounted motherboards and components.
Lian Li has just announced the latest edition to their “TU” briefcase chassis series in the PC-TU100 mini-ITX chassis. This new case is even more compact than the PC-TU200. Just like the previous case the PC-TU100 features an all aluminum design and has a top-mounted handle for easy transportation. The case will be available in both black and silver versions.
Lian Li has announced two mini-ITX cases featuring their signature blushed aluminum design, the PC-Q27 and PC-Q28. Both cases feature Lian Li’s new railing mount motherboard tray design and allow mini-ITX systems to be installed with traditional full-sized components. Both cases also features an easily removable side panel that only takes a single screw to remove. Read on to learn more about both of these cases.
Small form factor systems have become increasingly popular over the past year. The main reason for this is the availability of Mini ITX motherboards that have some of the same features as full-sized ATX motherboards. Having a smaller system means it is easier to take with you to LAN parties, takes up less space on your desk, and is able to fit in your home theater setup. Today we are taking a look at a case that is perfect for building a small form factor system. The Fractal Design Node 304 has that familiar cube design that many SFF systems has, but inside you are able to fit a Mini ITX motherboard, up to six hard drives and a full sized ATX power supply.

Thermaltake, being the industry pioneer brand in PC chassis, power supply and thermal solution, introduces the Mini-ITX Chassis SD101, a case designed exclusively for Mini-ITX motherboards. Unlike any other recent PC chassis Thermaltake has introduced, the Mini Case is reaching new combinations of stylish design with maximum functionality which is ideally for space saving. From petite desktop option to home theatre enjoyment, the minimalistic proportions, yet sleek front panel creates an exquisite lifestyle.
HDPLEX will release slim tray optical drive versions of the H3 and H5 passive HTPC cases next week. Both cases come with a Blu-ray ROM drive that has a brushed aluminum finish to match the front panel.
I have to say I am a huge fan of small form factor (SFF) cases. Not only because they are small but I am amazed at all of the features they can pack into such a small case. Today’s case is no exception. It fits Mini-ITX and Mini-DTX motherboards, has internal USB 3.0 and eSATA compatibility, a large 140mm intake fan, room for both 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch hard drives, a really cool side panel release system and even a handle on top for easy transportation. The case I’m talking about is the PC-TU200 from Lian Li. Read on as we have the review.
