    Default PC-Q26 and BP2SATA...

    Hi,

    we're evaluating the possiblity of prototyping a 4port SAS Backplane with an SFF-8087 input connector for the said case. Could you share some blueprints used for the BP2SATA with dimensions, as we currently do not have a Q26 around?

    Regards

    Hello marbus90. Lian Li is having difficulty understanding what you are asking for. They can not hand out blueprints. If you are making a product to fit our case, that sounds great, but you will need to have the case on hand to test. After you acquire the case, be sure to ask any further questions here.

    And, Lian Li makes similar products

    Thanks

    We're looking to design a board similar to the BP*SATA series, but that would cover 4 drive bays, and rather than having 4 SATA connectors, would have 4 SAS drive connectors, connected to two SFF-8087 multi-lane SAS connectors.

    This would allow much simpler cabling and also allow for redundant connections for high availability servers.

    I'd be glad to share the designs back to Lian-Li for their own use, and would not try and claim any royalties etc.

    Lian Li is a small company with traditional Taiwanese values. They can not share blueprints or schematics. That is their life. I wish you well in your work, and would love to see it, but Lian Li will not give that. Personally, I suggest buying both the case and the similar part and seeing what you can do.

    Good luck

    That would be a lot simpler if the case was actually available in this country.

    No-one I've checked has the case listed, let alone in stock.

    Both of the suppliers you listed are notorious for just listing everything under the sun and if you try and buy it stringing you along till you lose patience or give up.

    I've just called Altech as well who are one of the major parts distributors and they have none in country and no plans to get them.

    If you don't mind the cost, you may wanna consider importing from japan. I have seen it available on rakuten.

    I really don't see the issue in them wanting to provide a product to make this and other lian-li cases better. This is advertised as a NAS enclosure, but only includes a 2 drive sata backplane? I would much rather have an SAS option anyways. If Mr Lian-Li wants to market a 10 drive NAS enclosure then A) include an SAS backplane or B) at least include enough sata backplanes. I would gladly have paid $100 more for this case to have included either. I can not find a bp2sata for my pc-q26 and I have been looking for 4 months now. I had to wait 2 months for this case to even get back in stock in the U.S. I was watching my new hardware become obsolete waiting on the enclosure to get in stock.

    People want this case but can't find it. See a problem? Your paying customers do and these guys want to be your customers, but can't be because there is obviously a supply issue. What do customers do when they can't locate an item from a company? They buy something from someone else.

    The dimensions of the back of the drive cage with the mounting hole placement isn't exactly going to give someone the keys to Lian-Li's safe. I would personally send these guys a bp2sata as well out of my own pocket to help, if I could find one in stock. TBH the difficulty I have had getting my hands on your products is beyond irritating. In fact irritating to the point that my next build will probably be with someone else's enclosure.

    I have watched the video and checked the spec sheet. Cool looking little box. That is a lot drives you can fit in. You can see it here: Lian-Li Global | PC-Q26
    Lian Li makes 3 versions, for 1, 2 and 3 drive hot swapping. bp2sata bp3sata bp1sata

    Here is a whole page dedicated on where to buy: where to buy

    Other than that... Yes, some countries suffer from lack of distributors. We do our best but we can't do it all. If you know a better way to distribute around the world, let me know. I really wish you well using our products, we work hard to make them as good as they are.
