Gaming PC in Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic
Of course we have assembled a system with this impressive case and used a MSI Z370 Gaming Pro Carbon used in ATX format. The heart of the system is appropriately a headed the8auer i7-8700K Advanced Edition CPU with overclocking to 5.0 GHz. The CPU is supported by a total of 16 GB Team Group T-Force Dark DDR4-Memory with 3.000 MHz and one ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 Strix Graphics Card. For the required power supply a modular BitFenix Whisper M with 650 Watt was installed.
Of course, we also need a suitable cooling system for the components mentioned. For this reason, a complete water cooling system is used for our processor. In this case we have chosen the Raijintek Orcus RGB with 360-mm-Radiator, which does a decent job and also looks nice. In addition, we installed three Lian Li BR Lite fans in the lid to carry warm air to the outside. Of course, good cable management also helps for an optimal cooling result, which is why in this case we would prefer a Phanteks extension cable set, which is also optically very good.
As you can see on the pictures, we installed the graphics card vertically. That was Lian Li PC-O11 riserkabel necessary, whereby the rear slot bezels can be easily exchanged and the graphics card can be mounted upright on the bottom of the case. The look is definitely brilliant and finally you can see the cooler design of the graphics card. Nevertheless, it’s a pity that the mounting places for SSDs or fans on the floor are completely omitted.
The two-chamber design of the case suits us very well during installation, because it offers enough space to easily assemble all components. Power supply unit and data carrier find their place in the “hidden” chamber. From there, the necessary cables are routed to the front through rubberized bushings. Particularly practical are the lateral, slightly inclined feedthroughs next to the mainboard, whereby the cables can be laid very easily. The three included Velcro cable ties are also very useful, because we could tame the cable tangle behind the mainboard tray a little bit like that.
