    Need help with vertical gpu mount

    I have the O-11D XL, but previously had the normal O-11D. I have use the Lian Li, the CableMod one, as well as the Coolermaster one. The Cablemod one isn't needed, as its benefit is the ability to run cables even with hard PCI cover mounts. The Lian Li mounts in the floor and is nice, but...

    Hidden gems

    Wargame - Red Dragon I have put so many hours playing this game with my kids. It has some quirks and a little bit of a learning curve, but GREAT military strategy across pretty large maps. A quick mod to let you build custom decks with multinational equipment and this game has tons of...

    Any fans or RGB fans recommendation?

    If you're dead set on RGB fans...My opinion after using both, Thermaltake makes the better fan (airflow, static pressure) with the brightest LEDs, but the software to control the RGB is absolute trash. On the other hand, the Corsair LL or QL fans are decent fans with decently bright LEDs, but...

    Which is the best fan configuration for Lian Li O11 Dynamic XL??

    I am running an XL as well (under full water) and the fan configuration you are running is best for cooling performance in my experience. Visual aesthetics are "in the eye of the beholder", so if performance is where you want it, swap the fans around and see if it is still acceptable. JAT

    USB-C to DVI adapter - any ideas of use of that?

    I also saw that Visiontek Mystery Box vid and thought the same thing. JAT

    Dynamic XL is done...for now.

    Well look what came in today! The wife will not let me have it yet, because "that would not be fair to the kids...they don't get their gifts early on their birthday." :banghead: But that means there is probably a waterblock in this house somewhere too! Just a bit to go and then it will all...

    Dynamic XL is done...for now.

    Well, it took me a few days long than I thought to get it completed, but I think it is done until I snag a new card to put under water. The case was wonderful to build in and it seems that Lian li took all the advice from the owners of the original Dynamic. This one has no problem fitting...

    Finally made the switch back...

    Just got confirmation that Newegg has shipped my new 011-Dynamic XL today! I originally had been informed it would not ship until the 25th of September, so basically a week earlier that I had anticipated. So now it looks like I'll finally be able to put my new loop together this weekend...

    How many fans do you have on your PC case?

    Lian Li PC-011 Dynamic with side mounted 360 AIO in push/pull intaking, single 120 in the floor intaking, and three 120s in the top exhausting...so 10 total. JAT

    Finally made the switch back...

    I actually have two extras sitting in a box. :cool: The original plan was a triple 360 rad setup (D5, Singularity top/res combo, EK Velocity block), but I did not realize how low MB tray set in the Lian Li Dynamic, so the last rad will not fit in the bottom with the vert GPU, and the pump/res...

    Finally made the switch back...

    Yeah, I have a pair of 8 year old twins that gave me the white stickers. When I was covering the SSDs, I found the black skulls and put them on, along with the white stickers in the case. My kids loved it. JAT

    Finally made the switch back...

    No freezes at all. I have noticed a weird black screen flicker randomly when watching videos and moving the mouse. I am not sure if it is related to the last NVidia driver update or the new platform. I can unquestionably tell you that I get MUCH better multi-threaded scores manually clocking...

    Finally made the switch back...

    Well, I finally made the switch back to AMD, so I thought I would post a couple of pics of the rig, and a little story about my "boost controversy" experience. Here is the rig, in all her glory: So, first of all, the build experience was absolutely flawless. The GSkill Trident Z Neo RAM...

    Is your current main PC Intel or AMD

    I just went back to AMD a couple of weeks ago (3800x). Still have a 7700k in my wife's rig, and 2 of my kids have a 2200g in their rigs, while my older son has a 1600x in his, and my oldest son has a 8086k in his rig. I go for what is best for usage case and is cost effective. So we do both in...

    What's your latest tech purchase?

    It is about time for a platform upgrade. Fun weekend ahead! Back to AMD I go. JAT
