With the Q58, Lian Li builds a flexible miniature housing. Due to the variable layout, large components can also be used, but not all of them at the same time. The design, which is reminiscent of a chess board, is also unusual.

Lian Li creates the design using a mixture of panels made of brushed and sandblasted aluminum and glass, which alternate on all sides. The mix of materials incorporated into the design also represents a compromise. It makes it possible to accommodate both mesh and glass on the sides. Side air openings are a clear advantage for temperatures in the SFF segment, but glass is an advantage for buyers.

    In any case, the Q58 takes 67 millimeter high cooler and 320 millimeter long graphics cards, which are placed behind the mainboard via riser cables. What else can be installed is determined by the power supply that sits in front of the motherboard. Lian Li includes two mainboard trays with which the form factor and the associated installation height are defined.

    In the ATX socket, the power supply slides directly under the top of the case. Then ATX power supplies with a length of 160 millimeters, but only one fan in the cover and only two 2.5 “HDDs can be installed. When changing to an SFX power supply, the second tray is used, which holds the power supply about halfway This means that an additional two hard drives and two 120 or 140 mm fans or corresponding radiators fit under the cover. In any case, there is space for a 120 mm fan on the floor. An RGB and fan hub is included always to the equipment.

    Flexibility in terms of equipment and accessories

As Q58X3 A PCIe 3.0 riser cable, the Q58, is included for around 120 eurosW4 For just under 160 euros, on the other hand, a riser cable of the PCIe 4.0 generation is used, for the white version a surcharge of 10 euros is required. All variants can also be equipped with mesh side panels from October 22nd. A set of two elements that can be used to replace the glass windows costs around 20 euros.
