Whats the problem anyway? does the case get hot etc?

No problems just concerned seeing those high temps...the case does get hot to the touch...I guess with an aluminum build and 50+C° internals that shud be expected

1. Get some metal snips out and chop off the wings that fit it into the tray
2. Give it a little file down and buffer the edges
3. Then get some 1mm sponge padding and double sided tape.
4. place the padding along the optical tray with a cut out for the eject button
5. Attach the bezel.

Just remember where to push : )

Thank you Guardsmon! In your images the bezel looks absolutely flush. Looking great.

I assume you removed the face plate of the DVD drive before attaching the optical bezel?

Actually I'm really excited about getting the PC-Q21 case, cos originally I was after TU100 but I think Q21 is a better case. I think it's a great compact gaming ITX case. I have pretty much all the parts ready for the case but I'm just not too sure about the GPU.
CPU: Intel i7 4790S 65W
HSF: Noctua NH-L9i
M/B: Asus Z97i-PLUS
RAM: 16GB G.Skill Ares DDR3 2400
GPU: had Asus GTX670 Mini 170W (but i'll change it to 148W/120W Asus GTX970/960 Mini or R9 Nano if its not too expensive)
SSD: 250GB Samsung 850 EVO M.2 (but I'll change to 500GB Samsung 850 EVO M.2 or 256-512GB Samsung SM951)
HDD: 3x 2TB WD 2.5" external
ODD: Samsung SE-208W external
CASE: Lian Li PC-Q21B (http://www.lian-li.com/en/dt_portfolio/pc-q21)
PSU: Silverstone SX500-LG
FAN: Noctua NF-F12 Industrial PPC 120mm 2000RPM IP67 PWM

Yes the PC-Q21 was the computer I was waiting to come out for 2 years, but have since had left behind. Its a lovely mix between the PC-Q11 and Q02

The new PC-Q10 looks like it might work very well for gaming, but is just not really very mini.

One local retailer told me RRP on PC-Q21 case is ~$270, and rough ETA is ~7-8 weeks. frown.gif
Hopefully he got the wrong price would RRP on PC-TU100 is $170, and I can't see any reason why Q21 would cost much more than ~$160..

Hey guys,

I'm interested in buying a new GPU for the PC-Q01 which aparently has 210mm of space, I did see a review that said that the total space was 216mm. Anyways, I wanna get a 960 GTX STRIX, do you guys think it would fit since it's 215mm long?

thanks

Should fit, but it might touch the front, which could couple vibrations from the fans onto the case more directly. Not sure if that would actually make the system louder, though, maybe it's a non-issue.

The nights are getting longer and its take to start modding again.

I'm stuck though with which case to attempt to watercool this winter. My beloved PC-Q11 which I never complete watercooling 2 years ago or the PC-Q35 that I bought on a wim due to its price, but it gives a lot more room to play (man the aluminum is thin on it!).

Task - cool 3770k and GTX970....

Thoughts?
