Lian Li Q58 White Mini-ITX Case Review

Complete System

I did wonder where all my cables would go in this build, so I purposely (and lazily) left them a rats nest when I installed the PSU. It’s not modular, so all the cables are here. However, as you can (sort of) see, there’s actually a lot of room under my SFX PSU.

However, the bottom panel went on without issue, and really, you have a fantastic amount of hiding space for all this crap.

Flip the case back over, and you can see I’ve installed a really massive graphics card. It’s a 2.5 slot design and looks awesome in there. With the pre-installed riser, it was just a simple job of screwing the GPU into the rear bracket.

There’s a little bit of extra room down here, allowing for more cables to be routed out of sight.

The riser cable sitting snug under the GPU.

There’s a lot of space above it too, allowing more space in the top for a radiator or fans if you need them.

Despite being such a small case, there is WAY more space left over than I expected. That being said, I haven’t done many mini-ITX cases this last year, so maybe my judgement was off.

That’s the rat’s nest of cables from earlier. Once that side panel is on, you’ll never see it.

I didn’t need those cable ties at all, but keep in mind the case supports different orientations and hardware if you change the bottom panel for the alternative one. Furthermore, depending on how your motherboard is laid out, that can also change your cable routing requirements.

Pop the side panels back in place, and you can see the top half of the GPU, and it’ll be great to show off your RGB. Plus, the GPU can pull air in from the side panel ventilation.

Everything is very clean looking from this side

From the other side, you can see the bottom half of the motherboard (the motherboard is inverted in this build), while the PSU is largely hidden out of sight.

However, you can see it all lurking if you’re at the right angle. Furthermore, the PSU and the CPU cooler both can pull air directly through the filter on the side panel, while there’s going to be good passive heat exhaust out of the top of the case.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
