Lian Li Q58 is an aluminium Mini-ITX case at 14.5L in volume. The Q58 is priced at US$119 and £105 in the UK. You can also purchase additional mesh side panels as accessories if you want all mesh exterior. Preorders are open and the expected global release date was 25th September 2021. Unfortunately, majority global regions are experiencing shipment delays including US, UK & EU. The expected dispatch date is 29th October 2021 for the UK via Overclockers.

The Lian Li Q58 is one of the more standout Mini-ITX case we’ve seen in 2021, with its two tone appearance. Lian Li Q58 features sandwich style layout for compontents/hardware and interchangeable side panels between full mesh, full tempered glass or mixture of both.

The price of the Lian Li Q58 may well be the most attractive reason to buy the case compared to popular boutique Mini-ITX cases.

We know that Lian Li works closely with SFF case makers (Dan Cases, NCASE, FormD & SSUPD), so overall expectations are high for the public version of the Q58.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.
