Lian Li unveiled a new case under its main brand, and three new models under its LanCool brand extension, besides showing off several unreleased products that could see launch later this year. We begin with the O11D Mini, a miniaturized premium cube case that's a scale-down of the O11D for the Micro-ATX form-factor. It retains the vertically partitioned layout, coupled with key design elements of the O11-series such as a contrast between piano-black tempered glass and brushed aluminium for its two compartments, plenty of room for a serious DIY liquid-cooling setup, With a Mini-ITX motherboard in place, there's room for up to three 280 mm x 140 mm radiators; up to one 280 mm x 140 mm (or smaller) and one 240 mm x 120 mm radiator when using Micro-ATX. Available from May 2020, the O11D Mini is expected to be priced under $100. But wait, there's more: this case features a replaceable rear-panel, which lets you install even ATX motherboards.launched last November. Its design involves moving the front-panel perforations from the periphery toward the center. The metal portion of the side panels, too, are perforated, with a mesh dust filter. The case does away with the ARGB embellishment of the original LanCool II. Interestingly, it's priced at the same USD $89 as the black variant of the LanCool II, available from April 2020. The last of the three new cases is the LanCool 315, a highly modular mid-tower with a horizontally partitioned interior. Its USP is a motherboard tray that detaches from the rest of the case and slides out from the back. There are two trims of this case, one with a tempered glass front panel, and the other with a perforated mesh front-panel. Both trims are priced at $79, and available from May 2020.
