NFSxperts, you used the package dimensions for the Lian Li Q03, not the actual case size.

Lian-Li PC-Q03
"Package Dimensions"
230 x 308 x 259mm / 18.3L

"Case Size"
W) 199mm
(H) 245mm
(D) 210mm 10.2L

I am pretty sure I will build with one soon, which is how I ended up here. Your first post with cases in order of size is such a great way to shop cases, and it is much appreciated.

This all started with me building a server in a Lian Li Q25 case, (which is probably too big to be included in this thread at 20L), and I fell in love with it. Since it is sitting on the end of my desk I thought I could replace this ATX tower paperweight I am using with a smaller case that would match it. The Q11 Lian Li case would have been perfect for what I want but the sides screw on. That leaves only 1 case with the "look" I want in the small size range I want, the Lian Li Q03.

Now that I have boxed myself into a corner with the small size of the Q03 I have to sort out what to fit in it. With no case fan heat will be an issue so I have been thinking of taking the I3-4130T CPU from the server, that has zero heat issues, and use it in this build. So this is where I am with that >>> http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Qtrmeg/saved/2ZWR

What is going to save this build is I don't need a graphics card, but I really think I want more CPU. On the other hand I so rarely crank things up the I3-4130T will be fine for 90+% of what I do, and I already have it. The MSI motherboard just happens to have the best layout for cables, and they do have a Z87 version but I can't think of a reason to upgrade to that.

I'll pull the trigger on something soon but I doubt whatever I build will impress you guys that much. I'm just looking for a desktop tool not a tire screeching gaming rig. I'll join up so at least you have a Q03 owner here.

Your list looks good. If you already have the cpu, then you should just use it. Out of curiosity, what type of server will you be running to make you think you'll need a more powerful cpu?


Added the new SilverStone HTPC case to the list
SilverStone Milo ML06
350 x 99 x 205mm / 7.1L

It's an Unraid media server and it runs just fine the way it is, it's the desktop I wanted more CPU in. The Q03 doesn't have a case fan, (yet), and limited amount of room for a CPU cooler. This is why I am toying around with using the I3-4130T w/ TDP of 35w vs say an I5-4670 w/ TDP of 84w.

The 4130T is the safe/easy choice but I think I'll regret not trying the 4670. I'm pretty sure the 4670 will be fine with a low profile cooler, (70mm max), and if not I can install a case fan on the bottom.

I'd like to join the club with my first SFF build. smile.gif

4770K and GTX 780 Ti in a Silverstone SG08.

I'm not too big into modding, but I may at some point look into shortening the included PSU's cables, because they are WAY too long.

Putting the i3 in the Q03 sounds great, but is there a place for a case fan in the case?
