Lian Li raises the mood with a very flexible tower
The O11 Dynamic EVO convertible gets a 38 percent larger sibling, where, among other things, three 420 mm radiators can be operated.
Lian Li has expanded its range of trend-setting O11 Series cases with an 8-slot E-ATX solution that can be customized in a number of ways, as well as providing an unobstructed semi-circular panorama, with hardware that can be packed to the edge.
It is 531.9 mm high, 304 mm wide and 522 mm deep. O11 Dynamic Evo XL The vertically divided interior of the so-called build accommodates a 167mm high processor cooler, a 460mm long video card, three 2.5″ drives and four 2.5″ or 3.5″ drives. Up to 11 fans can blow air over our components, but water systems fans can also rub their palms, as all three radiator locations can accommodate 240, 280, 360 or 420 mm samples.
The interesting thing about the machine room is the modular design, which is evident in several things. The motherboard tray, which can be installed at three different heights, is removable and reversible, and since the front column decorated with an addressable ARGB light strip can also be removed, we will not be able to see our components from the left/eye, but from the right/eye, although Although in this case our board will be installed upside down.
The hinged frame of the side air motor/cooler can also be removed (but in fact the entire bowl can be disassembled into its components), which not only facilitates installation towards the direction of 4mm thick tempered glass or richly perforated metal. Side panel, but also optional with the help of the purchasable GPU kit – as well as a 900mm riser cable – provides the possibility of mounting our graphics controller with outputs facing forward, down or upward.
That’s not all, because there are two closing panels, designed to prevent deterioration of the internal air pressure and which can be moved to other positions according to our configuration. We can attach our expansion cards to the PCI frame without tools, and flexing of our VGA is prevented by the height-adjustable support of Model No. GB-003.
On the far side of the motherboard tray, at the top and bottom of the back, is a dual-device combo frame, which hinges open to accommodate our back magazines, both of which can accommodate a 120mm fan blessed with a 15mm thick frame, but if the part is removed Lower, which is available 165 mm, we can hide the D5 or DDC pump from prying eyes. It is worth noting that the board that houses three 2.5-inch HDD/SSD drives and covers cable management is also of the hinge type.
To organize the wire jungle, three “double-layer” straps help (i.e. a metal strap with a Velcro fastener), which can be attached almost anywhere and connected to the holes of the vertical run. Versatility is enhanced by the fact that the I/O island containing a USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-C port, three USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A connectors, an audio jack, power and reset buttons and an LED can be placed in three places, front, side or back along Bottom edges.
The beast, which carries aluminum and glass panels on its steel frame and is delivered with four dust filters (three of which are magnetic), is already available for pre-order, and while the black version costs $240, the white version costs $245. These are net amounts, of course.
