Lian Li Launches Modular and Small-Sized O11 AIR MINI

Lian Li, announces the O11 AIR MINI, available in black and white. The new small tower case features an airflow focus design with dense mesh front, top and side panels, 3 pre-installed PWM fans, support for a wide array of fans and radiators configurations, and enough clearance for CPU tower coolers up to 170 mm tall. The O11 AIR MINI can support ATX power supplies, and thanks to its modular back panel, motherboards from Mini-ITX up to E-ATX.

With a combination of front, top, and right-side dense mesh panels, support for up to ten 120 mm fans, and filtered opening at the bottom, the O11 AIR MINI offers unrestricted ventilation. The two pre-installed 140 mm PWM fans at the front and a 120 mm PWM fan at the rear ensures a good foundation for thermal management.
Similar in size to the O11D MINI, the O11 AIR MINI can support ATX power supplies of up to 200 mm in length, enabling power-hungry systems without limitations. A modular back panel, which can be reconfigured from a 7-expansion slot setup for ATX motherboards to a 5-slot configuration for M-ATX and ITX motherboards, allows the O11 AIR MINI to install graphics cards up to 362 mm in length and high-performance CPU cooling towers up to 170 mm in height.

Depending on the back panel configurations and motherboard installed, the O11 AIR MINI features four mounting locations for 240 radiators, with three capable to support 280 radiators, support for up to ten 120 mm fans, or six 140 mm fans and four 120 mm, ensuring enough cooling for even the most demanding hardware.

Pricing & Availability

The black/white O11 AIR MINI will be available at an MSRP of 109.99 USD for the black version, and 119.99 USD for the white. In addition, a vertical GPU back panel accessory will be made available in black, white, PCIe 3.0, and PCIe 4.0 riser cable, to fully display graphics cards.

Hey Lian Li, do you want to release this version of PC-011D at any point in the near future? I know the EVO is coming, but I dont believe itll have the mesh front like this one.

Hey LL, betta make sure your lawyering folk getz plenty of rest this weekend, cause theyz gonna be real busy next week :)

But at least they put USB-C on the top I/O, so there's that.... which the 540 neva had (I modded one years ago to add it in, but that's anutha story !)

This case is designed by Der8auer btw as it is not mentioned. There is also the Lian Li O11 Dynamic Mini
Also imo it's not even close to a copy of the 540 air. 540 left, O11 mini right, both from PSU side

Its basically a smaller version of the O11, as is the O11 dynamic mini, which also has the side mounted fans/radiator

I find it funny people have a problem with copying in this market, it's basically what most companies do and what all should be doing.
Copy good design -> make your own improvements -> repeat.

I would be interested if there was a version without a glass panel.

Most great designs are evolutionary, not revolutionary: Homo sapiens. All designs can be improved.

"Mesh" "unrestricted ventilation"
Tell me another fairytale.
Bring back fully open fan mounts which we can put a grill on if we choose.

Womp womp. Dust is an unwinnable battle. Get yourself an anti-static blower and dust it out once in a while.

You think this mesh which is probably ~50% open blocks dust? Hair maybe, dust no way.
Demci filters are less restrictive and genuinely filter dust. Give people the choice between no filtration and effective filtration instead of a middling ineffective restrictive option.

I don't believe I said that? I agree that dust filters provide effective filtration. Once dust gets into the heatsinks it can be difficult to remove.

I have a mesh front case with filters and airflow is not a problem. Now these tiny cases id suggest high static pressure fans

It's not designed by Der8aer. It's designed with. O11 allready exists, and have for many years. Der8auer has been working with Lian Li on refreshing the case, and bring his own touch.
