With the PC-O11 Dynamic, Lian Li and Roman “der8auer” Hartung have created a truly very interesting midi tower that convinces with its price, design and of course quality. But why is that? At a price of less than 130€, only very few comparable cases can be found. The price is due to the mainly used materials, which consist mainly of steel with the exception of a few decorative strips, instead of aluminium, as is often the case with Lian Li.
Despite the lower manufacturing costs, we could not find any negative points on the housing with regard to workmanship. It is manufactured consistently very high-quality and makes a stable impression. We were particularly impressed by the well thought-out installation of the two tempered glass windows on the front and side as well as the side panel on the rear. All of them can be hooked in and thus mounted completely without screws, which not only makes mounting easier, but also looks very good. The real glass panes also have rubber-coated coatings, which can prevent vibrations.
Regarding the equipment, the Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic leaves it rather with basic features. Fans can be found in the case. However, we don’t find this bad as many standard case fans are often not the best in terms of volume and performance anyway. Otherwise, the case naturally offers very good hardware support. Graphics cards up to 420 mm long, CPU coolers up to 155 mm high and power supplies up to 255 mm long can be installed.

On the other hand, the Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic shines with very good Wakü support. Up to three 360 mm radiators can be mounted simultaneously in the housing. One in the lid, one on the bottom and one on the side of the mainboard tray. In addition, the housing also has sufficient space for expansion tanks and complex custom water cooling systems. There is also enough space for enough storage media and if you want to go crazy, you can even install a second power supply.
