Lian Li have released an upgrade to the PC-Q37 with the new mini-ITX PC-Q39 with tempered glass side panel and a larger internal volume. The aluminium case will be large enough to fit a three slot GPU, with the extra width allowing a separated second chamber to house an ATX PSU of up to 160mm.
In addition to the PSU there is space for a pump and reservoir for watercooling as well as mounting points for two 3.5” and one 2.5” drive, allowing you to configure an unobstructed view of your components and he almost mandatory RGB LED lightshow which they produce. If you do chose to watercool, a radiator of up to 240mm can be mounted at the top while the bottom of the case will accommodate two 120mm fans or a single 140 fan.
The front panel has a minimalist design, the various connectors have been moved to the top of the case. There is now a USB 3.1 Type-C plug in addition to two USB 3.1 plugs, audio jacks and a power button. The shield at the top of the case is removable to make it easier to mount your fans or radiator as well as making it easy to clean.
The MSRP is $210 and it is available now at NewEgg and other fine retailers.

August 16, 2017, Keelung, Taiwan – Lian Li Industrial Co. Ltd is delighted to present the new PC-Q39 WX Mini-ITX mini tower chassis. The PC-Q39 is an evolution of the PC-Q37 and allows the use of ATX power supplies as well as triple slot graphics cards in a mini-ITX chassis. Internally, dedicated grommets for liquid cooling tubing have been placed in order to move reservoir and pumps to the wider secondary chamber. This enables motherboard, graphics card, and other main components to shine behind the tempered glass panel. Furthermore, the front panel has been upgraded and now features an USB 3.1 Type-C connector.
Mini-ITX case with ATX PSU
The PC-Q39 continues the traditional Lian Li design with dual chambers for extremely clean builds. The main compartment houses the Mini-ITX motherboard and graphics cards up to 320mm in length, while the second compartment has a tool-less drive rack for two 3.5” and one 2.5” drives, there is another one 2.5”in the back, and one on MB tray, totally three 2.5” drives. An ATX PSU up to 160mm in length and optional liquid cooling reservoir or pump. Two grommet holes in the motherboard allow liquid cooling tubing to pass between chambers. Five holes in the motherboard tray allow cabling to pass from the main to the secondary chamber for clean designs.
Mini-ITX with support for 240mm radiators
The PC-Q39 is slightly bigger than the PC-Q37 which allows it to house bigger components, like a full-size ATX PSU as well as triple slot graphics cards. Besides space for a 240mm radiator at the top, the bottom can also house two 120mm fans or a 140mm fan. All fan mounting points are covered by magnetically attached dust filters for easy cleaning and maintenance, while the front, top, and side-panels are easily removable thanks to Lian Li’s patented rivet system.
Lead paragraph suggests the case can fit 3 GPUs which had me scratching my head considering it’s an mITX case….
Manufacturer’s PR paragraph clarifies that it’s designed to fit a single card with a “triple slot” cooler attached to it.
Serves me right for reading
Serves me right for reading so quickly
Looks like it has enough room
Looks like it has enough room for an MATX board, shame they didn’t think ahead.
