[Official] Lian Li Mini-Q Case Owner's Club - Page 4

post #31 of 231
I've been a proud owner of a Q11 for over a year now as a very solid box for my HTPC setup.

Recently I've been looking to do a bit of an upgrade and give it more "oomph" into something I can use more roundly to playback 1080p high def videos and do some gaming.

My current "want" spec sheet looks like this:

4GB DDR3 Corsair RAM
ASRock Z11E Itx mini mobo
Intel Core i5 3570k
Corsair 450w psu
Lian Li Q11 Black


Any thoughts on the above? Also kinda struggling for a graphics card that will fit in there and give me "Decent" performance for relatively little cash - ie: the latest GTX or 670's are nowhere near my radar :smile.gif

Oh and first post as a member on here!

Hey Guys,

I just got a PC-Q09FN, and I will be putting an a10-5800k into it sometime in the next week or so. I had a question about this case though. What is up with these pass through USB cables? Has anyone found a replacement kit other than the UC-01 adapter?

Hey guys,

Just joined up as i have a PC-Q case for a new build. Just received the case today hopefully the rest will show up tomorrow, i will post up picks when its all complete.

CASE LIAN-LI | PC-Q18A R (Qty: 1)
VGA PNY GTX670 2GB RT (Qty: 1)
HDD SEAGATE 1T ST1000VX000 7K 64M (Qty: 2)
MEM CORSAIR CML16GX3M2A1600C10 (Qty: 1)
ODD BLU-RAY COMBO LG | CH12LS28 R (Qty: 1)
SSD SAMSUNG 840 120G MZ-7TD120KW R (Qty: 1)
CPU INTEL|CORE I5 3570K 3.4G 6M R (Qty: 1)
FAN CORSAIR | H80I R (Qty: 1)
OS MICROSOFT WINDOWS 8 PRO 64-BIT % (Qty: 1)
MB GAIGABYTE|GA-Z77N-WIFI Z77 1155 (Qty: 1)
PSU SILVERSTONE | ST45SF-G 450W RT (Qty: 1)

Seeing as the size of the Corsair H80i is a bit big, and i want to keep the integrity of the HDD trays, i will have to do some fenagaling to get everything thing to fit and be cool while OC'd.
Hopefully will have it all together for pics this weekend. Wish me luck. thumb.gif

Been a long time lurker of this site, so im happy to finally join.

Aaron

EDIT:
Parts arrived. I've already got a new PSU mount designed that will allow me to install the SFX PSU horizontal, give me an extra space for a 80mm exaust fan, and buy me the room for the H80i. Just need to remove a little metal from the case and to cut the new mount plate out of plate aluminum at my machine shop and i can get moving. About to order white leds and white sleeving to match everything up on the inside, as i made sure and buy all black hardware. Going to use the space provided for the fan control switch to control the interior lighting. Black/White/Raw-Aluminum shoud work well together.

So I've had a nightmare time with my new HTPC build.
Been using the ultra awesome Lian Li Q11 the past year with a simple but slow build but upgraded my parts this week to the below:

Silverstone Strider Plus 600W ST60F-P
Corsair Force Series GT 60GB SSD
G.Skill Ares F3-1600C9D-8GAO 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3
ASRock Z77E-ITX Mini ITX Motherboard
Intel Core i5 3470
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB OC

Much speedier!

After spending a good 3hrs putting it all together, cleaning out the case etc I tried fitting the PSU into it and...it didn't work.
So this Q11 case is definately far too small for a decent sized PSU - to the point where i'm currently looking like this:




Last night I ordered a Fractal Design 304 Node case which will fit all the parts and looks a bit better.

Anyway, just a word of warning - I do have the HTPC up and working with Win7 and holy **** is it fast!

Sorry guys for not updating the OP in such a long time, it's been updated for those with pics! :D

indorill - Here's a silverstone one from Newegg:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812162012R - you can get the non-open box version too

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812162012

mulac - sorry for the late reply, but if you want a modular SFF PSU, you could have used the Silverstone ST45SF-G:

Have to agree, it took me a couple of hours to get the donor pc stripped and get all the parts transferred across to the new case but I love it. small, perfectly formed and much quieter than the case I was using before. Temps aren't amazing but then I wasn't expecting them to be given the form factor. Just need to find a suitable quiet power supply and possibly a new heatsink as I'm using the stock intel cooler for my 2500k. If anyone has any suggestions I am all ears.
