Most people that i know of that are professionals either in the video editing business or in graphics designing own several Terabytes of data while some of them working for some of the leading movie studios have as much as 120TBs of total storage. I am certainly not excluding ourselves since currently for backup purposes along we using exactly 28TBs and that's without including the 22TBs which we have attached on all 3 of our test rigs for daily use. Unfortunately although storage capacity needs get higher each day that goes by we still haven't seen any 5TB hard disk drive models get unveiled from all the leading manufacturers and although both HGST and Seagate have announced technologies that should allow the manufacture of mechanical drives up to 20TB in capacity (if not more since technology advances all the time) by the end of this decade that's really of little concern right now.

Since this is my first venture into building a system inside an M-ITX PC case I didn't know exactly what to expect when I started out.

The Lian Li PC-Q28 PC case, while small, has a large internal volume and will make for an excellent enthusiast M-ITX case with a few tweaks and mods. In this article Benchmark Reviews will hopefully provide answers to all of the questions you may have regarding the capabilities of the Lian-Li PC-Q28 Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower PC Case (model PC-Q28B), and more that you may have not considered.

EVGA and cases aren’t normally two things mentioned in the same sentence but the new Hadron Air blazes a new trail for a company that’s normally associated with graphics cards, motherboards and power supplies. While there was a rumored SR-2 enclosure a few years ago, nothing really became of that but now things have changed.
Believe it or not, EVGA’s first official case isn’t the massive and expensive E-ATX enthusiast-oriented chassis many expected them to produce; it isn’t even a mid tower.
