LIAN LI has been on a roll recently with cool cases, and the latest addition being the LIAN LI Q58, a compact 14.5L ITX case with plenty of space for high-end components. It comes in at a pretty premium price point though, starting from $119.99 (~RM501).

The LIAN LI Q58 defining design trait is definitely its half-and-half design. The case is very practically split in two, with the side panels hosting a window on one half for you to show off the innards of the case, while the other half is made of mesh, for airflow. Speaking of airflow, the LIAN LI Q58 can fully kitted out with up to three 140mm fans if used with an SFX power supply.

If you decide to go with a ATX power supply, which is also supported by the LIAN LI Q58, you will be limited to just one 140mm fan at the top, and one 120mm fan at the bottom. Radiator support is also similarly affected by your choice of power supplies, with the LIAN LI Q58 supporting up to a 280mm radiator at the top when used with an SFX power supply, or a 120mm radiator when an ATX PSU is crammed into the case.

Storage options are also quite extensive, although the power supply form factor once again plays a role here. With an SFX power supply, you can cram up to four 2.5″ drives, or three 2.5″ drives and one 3.5″ drive. Switching to a larger ATX power supply will limit it to just two 2.5″ drives. Putting that into a simple table:

LIAN LI Q58 Compatibility

ATX power supply SFX power supply
Fans 1 x 140mm/120mm (top)
1 x 120mm (bottom)
2 x 140mm/120mm (top)
1 x 120mm (bottom)
Radiators 1 x 120mm (top)
1 x 120mm (bottom)
1 x 240/280mm
1 x 120mm bottom
Storage 2 x 2.5″ drive 4 x 2.5″ drive / 3 x 2.5 drive + 1 x 3.5″ drive

The LIAN LI Q58’s design consists of an aluminum exterior panels and SPCC Steel inside, which enhances the overall look without costing as much as full-aluminum designs. You can get the LIAN LI Q58 in black and white. This is probably one of the rare cases where the black version actually looks better thanks to the more contrasty finish on the front panel, as the white version does not get the same two-tone finish.

Aside from the color option, you can also get the LIAN LI Q58 with either a PCIe 4.0 or PCIe 3.0 riser cable included. The prices are as follows:

  • LIAN LI Q58 (Black) with PCIe 3.0 riser: $119.99 (~RM501)
  • LIAN LI Q58 (White) with PCIe 3.0 riser: $129.99 (~RM542)
  • LIAN LI Q58 (Black) with PCIe 4.0 riser: $149.99 (~RM626)
  • LIAN LI Q58 (White) with PCIe 4.0 riser: $159.99 (~RM667)

If you decide you want to make your LIAN LI Q58 more airflow-focused, LIAN LI is selling the mesh panels to replace the tempered glass halves with for just $15.99 (~RM67). You can also kit out your LIAN LI Q58 with ARGB LED strips, which LIAN LI is selling for the same $15.99 (~RM67).

Pokdepinion: The black one looks better to me, and it is just slightly cheaper too! Perfect~
