Lian Li ROG-Certified PC-O11WGX Now with Accessory Bundle and PCIe Riser

Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd is proud to announce the PC-O11WGX, certified by Asus Republic of Gamers and updated with USB 3.1 Type-C connector on the front panel. The new PC-O11WGX also comes with the popular O11-1 accessory kit with PCI-E riser cable for vertical graphics card mounting in the box! Furthermore, the front panel features exquisite ROG silk screen detailing and improved liquid cooling compatibility.

The ROG branded PC-O11WGX has been built with feedback from Lian Li PC-O11 users. This is evident by optimized layout for disks on the rear of the chassis, it can fit three 2.5" drives. This puts more focus on liquid cooling and with space for three 360mm radiators for liquid cooling (or three 120mm fans) there is enough capacity for any thermal challenge inside the PC-O11WGX.
Bundled with vertical graphics card kit, featuring improved design
The PC-O11WGX now comes bundled with the popular O11-1 accessory kit, this allows PC-O11WGX to mount their graphics cards horizontally or vertically thanks to the included PCI-E riser cable in the kit. The front panel has been upgraded compared to the original PC-O11 to include a USB 3.1 Type-C connector besides the already present two USB 3.0 and HD audio ports. The PC-O11WGX carries over the impressive specs of the original PC-O11, including space for 430mm ATX PSUs with rubber vibration dampers, space for 4x 3.5" and 5x 2.5" drives. The top and bottom panels also include mesh dust filters.

High-performance tempered glass build with Asus ROG Certification and styling
THE PC-O11WGX has the distinctive markings of a ROG product on its front panel, and continues the proud tradition of ROG certified Lian Li cases. This means that the PC-O11WGX has performed well in extensive tests by ROG engineers, in order to deliver the best possible experience and ensures that all compatible ROG products fit flawlessly and work without a hitch. It fits from Mini-ITX up to E-ATX motherboards including all Asus' ROG line-up of motherboards.

Price and Availability
The PC-O11WGX will be available mid-May in North America for MSRP of US $319.

I actually like it, once you've seen others build in similar styled cases you tend to forget all the obstacles imposed by the manufacturers.

"space for three 360mm radiators"... err, that's not accurate unless they've made some MAJOR modifications. You can only get two 360 rads in the PC-O11, and even that would be at the expense of the vertical GPU bracket. If you use that you can only fit one 360 up top.

I'm gonna guess that one would be hosted in the second compartment. I'll see though as I've got a few 30mm and 54mm 360 rads and my case should be here either Monday or Tuesday.

I don't see how that would be possible. It's quite self evident the case isn't that wide (same as original PC-O11, that hasn't changed). By the time you put PSU, cables etc. in the back, there would be no room for a rad+fans, regardless of rad thickness. The lack of case width means the only mounting place would be on the side panel, which would then be impossible to remove once the rad was mounted, nevermind how do you even get access that area to attach tubing etc. once it's in place lol! I'm 100% sure this is a typo.

If it's the same dimensions as the PC-O11 (which it is otherwise it would be named differently), then it simply cannot take x3 360 rads... it's physically and practically impossible, and this is obvious even from the tiny pictures on this article. I have seen a PC-O11 up close and there is literally no way they could do it short of making the case wider, which they clearly have not done.

I am not doubting what you are saying but I am part of a large modding community...nothing is impossible. If the 2nd compartment is large enough to house a psu...anything is possible.

I have modded cases myself, but here is the PC-O11... you can clearly see the rear chamber is the depth of a PSU on its side. That's not 360mm, not even close, only about 90-100mm! 360 rad in there is NOT happening unless you do some EXTREME modding, metal work etc. (and even that it would take some doing). But that's beside the point anyway... the description says the case supports x3 360 rads which is clearly wrong.

Why aren't the pictures any larger than the thumbnails once clicked on?

Come on folks, 10 second search on their website (http://www.lian-li.com/en/dt_portfolio/pc-o11wgx/) would reveal a metric buttload of pics with larger pics available... o_O

Also, per their website:
System Fan

Optional
120mm fan x2 / 120mm fan x3 (Top) / 80mm fan x2 (Rear) / 120mm fan x3 (Bottom)

Granted Lian LIs site sucks. But thanks anyways.

@atomicus
Edit: funny thing is like i stated before i don't doubt any1. But it seems to me that this chassy shows exactly what the description said...fits 3 360 radiators.

Looks like 3 rads to me. Like I said if the back is large enough to house a PSU, it's large enough to fit a rad.

Well that isn't the case pictured above in this article... they've obviously made some further modifications with those cut-outs, as they clearly aren't visible in the picture below. Granted, with those in place you may get three rads in there, but it might be very tight with one at the bottom.

A 30mm+fan should fit in the rear with no issues at all.

Overall a nice design, just needs a few changes to keep me happy.
Lose the etching on the front edge and modify the top to take 140mm fans.
