As I can see PC-Q03 is the smallest of them all after looking on dimenions, is that true?
post #82 of 231
You could mod in expansion slots. The Q03 is not too much bigger and has a single slot.

Well, I see.

I am thinking about Q02 since I dont really need any card since my 3570K got HD4000. The only thing is that I dont know which CPU cooler I can fit, since I am going to run a overclock. I know Noctua have coolers, but are they to big. I need a slimfit cooler or something atleast. http://www.techradar.com/reviews/pc-mac/pc-components/cases-cooling/cooling/noctua-nh-l9i-1138956/review

Or do any people know a slimfit cooler which I can overclock with. If that doesn't exist I am sure I can get a H60 or something in, but man it's going to be tight.

Yolo, ordered a Q02 with ASUS P8Z77-I DELUXE and H100i.

Why ppl ask? Since I can :ooooo

Been using a Lian-Li PC-Q16b since last November. Originally wanted to build something small and was trying to track down a PC-Q05b in Canada but could only find the silver one, so I decided to go for the Q16b for the interim.





lian-li PC-Q16b
i3-3225, stock cooler
Intel DQ77KB
2x4GB 1866 sodimms (MB identified the speed but only runs them at 1600)
Intel 330 SSD 240GB
W8Pro 64bit


Stock intel cooler will not fit with the lian-li PSU so I have a very empty PC...Motherboard is using a dell 65W laptop adapter. Stock front cooler is on the noisy side (i'm very picky).

Was planning on doing some tweaking to this setup (noctua cpu cooler, etc) but I somehow got my hands on a Lenovo M92P tiny earlier in the year (got it for a relative) and was amazed by it, waiting for Haswell version M93P which will replace this.

Just got my Q27b in the mail today! I'm thinking about modding the interior layout a bit so it's set up like an FT03 mini, with the Silverstone ST45SF psu on the bottom, and either a tower cooler or my H70 mounted on the top. headscratch.gif

Loving this thread and very proud of what I will be building. I currently have an Unraid server and a gaming PC that are both on 24/7. Both very large (Norco 4220 & Antec 900-2). Goal was to combine this into a tiny, singular system still with an optical drive.

Received my beautiful Li-ion case last week and the remainder of my parts today. Will be creating a mini ITX gaming server using the following parts:

CORSAIR CX500M 34.99
Samsung 840 256gb SSD 149.99
LIAN LI PC-Q08B 87.99
ESATA -> SATA Cable 1.69
Optical DVD Burner Drive 21.99
ARCTIC Alpine 64 GT Rev. 2 CPU Cooler 6.99
G.SKILL (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) 66.99
AMD A10-6700 125.00
ASRock FM2A85X-ITX FM2 89.00
ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini 269.99
x6 4tb Seagate Hard Drives 899.94

Windows 8.1 & Flexraid Pro for a 20TB parity protected array

In bold are the main parts that make this build possible. Without the existence of all 3 of these I wouldn't be able to get the frame-rates, internal SATA slots, or SATA ports necessary for such a build.

I have modded all of the cables to make this a clean tight fit (pic below). I will not be overclocking so all I wanted was a cheap silent cpu fan for the 65w processor. heatsink did not fit so I had to do some cutting. More pics to come.

Side Note...
It's too late now but does anyone know of a z87 mini itx board with 8 sata ports (no split ports). I couldn't find one leading me to have to go with FM2 (only 8 SATA board I could find in existence).
