Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic Review
The O11 Dynamic is different, and that’s great. There are tons of manufacturers playing it safe at every price point with samey cases, but Lian Li has avoided falling into that rut (for better or for worse).

Performance is much better than we thought it would be, and the case is well-suited for liquid cooling radiators and open loops. The vertical GPU mount, typically a weak point for cooling performance, was handled excellently. We’re looking forward to the release of the mesh-fronted O11 Air, which should be better suited to our air-cooled test bench.

$100 for the preorder was a good price, and it’d be great if that’s what it stayed at. $130, the price it will be at by launch, is harder to recommend -- but not that hard. Buying fans could easily add another $30, depending on the quality, and that potentially brings the price past the View 71, which is on sale for $125 after rebate at the time of this writing. The difference is that Lian Li’s O11 Dynamic has a very unique, stout look, and isn’t an overwhelmingly large tower. The O11 Dynamic may target liquid cooling enthusiasts (who should already have their own fans and cooling components), but it’s completely usable as an air-cooled system. Again, not including fans was a good choice in our opinion, since the target audience likely already owns fans and doesn’t want to pay for more. $130 is a good price for those who specifically have their eye on this case and perhaps already have some fans, but everyone else should shop around a little first. The O11 Dynamic is an enthusiast’s case, and it shows.
