The Q58 is the smallest case that Lian Li currently offers and it comes with a somewhat unusual design. It is not only the two different side panels that are unusual, but rather the fact that they can be adjusted modularly and as needed. The Lian Li Q58 is available in 4 versions: black and white with PCIe 3.0 riser cable and the same again with PCIe 4.0 each. The prices depend on color and cable and start at 119 Euros (black) and 129 Euros (white). PCIe 4.0 then costs an additional 30 Euros each.
So, the customer is spoiled for choice as to which case is the right one for him. The markup for color and riser cable is plausible, but not really nice. We will find out what is possible in this case in today’s test. But just to add something like that would be really boring…
..and therefore this will be a real water cooling installation in the smallest space here and now! Anyone can build a large case, but a tiny one like this is always a nice challenge. And exactly on this journey I will take you today simply times!
Scope of delivery
Lian Li ships the Q58 in a plain brown cardboard box with a picture of the case – nothing else is visible from the outside. Inside, the case is well protected as usual with 2 styrofoam blocks and a foil.
The box also contains an accessory box with various screws, cable ties and brackets for the SSD. Also included are two magnetic dust filters and a bracket, which will still be very interesting and which I will discuss later in the review. Because this is very unusual in such a case, but I don’t want to spoil anything here yet.
