REVIEW

The HZMOD XQ69 is a very compact case at around 5-6L internal volume, but with it compact size and lack of case fans, the case thermals are higher than most other SFF cases we’ve tested.

The cases is not cheap by any means, costing around £180 in the UK after VAT and delivery cost from China. Combine this with its high thermals, makes it hard for us to recommend HZMOD XQ69 case, when there are SFF cases like the Meshlicious, GEEEK G1 SE and Lian Li Q58 which are cheaper, more premium and have better thermal performance.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
