LIAN LI Industrial Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of aluminium chassis and PC accessories, is proud to launch the PC-O11D MINI, the newest and most compact addition to the O11D series. Available in white with aluminium accents, and black with a glossy finish, the O11D MINI takes on a highly modular approach to accommodate Mini-ITX, mATX, ATX, and E-ATX motherboard sizes while still offering high-performance water cooling configurations. With its modular and interchangeable back panel, and included pump mounts, the O11D MINI brings a new level of DIY to the PC industry while keeping a minimalist and modern design.

The O11D MINI supports a wide range of configurations with a modular rear panel. Adjustable into 3 positions, the I/O shield rear panel can be positioned at the top with 7 expansion slots, in the middle with 5 expansion slots, and at the bottom with 3 expansion slots. Each bracket can be easily removed and relocated to support either large E-ATX to M-ATX motherboards (with the addition of an included extension bar next to the motherboard tray) or small ITX motherboards, which offer the most room for custom water cooling.



Cooling compatibility in mind
The O11D MINI offers endless possibilities for optimal cooling configurations. The well thought out filtered vents and multiple mounting points for radiators and fans at the top, bottom, and beside the motherboard, can adapt to an all-air cooling, full custom water cooling, or a mix of AIO and air cooling system. Depending on the location and size of the motherboard installed, up to 9 fans can be fitted in the chassis, or even a 360 mm thick radiator at the top or bottom with a 280 radiator beside the motherboard, offering enough flexibility to choose a well-adapted thermal solution and prevent any system from throttling.

A special touch for custom water cooling
The O11D MINI comes with pump mounting brackets in 3 different styles, which gives more flexibility for vertical and horizontal alignment of the pump. All fitted with elongated holes for adjustment, the pump can be mounted at the bottom of the case, in a raised position, or on top of a radiator or fan.

Updated look
Following the design of the O11D series, the O11D MINI brings in small changes giving it a clean modern look. Starting with airflow, the top, rear, and bottom ventilation holes now feature a honeycomb pattern for improved performance. While the white version sports an elegant brushed aluminium strip at the front of the case, the black version replaces this strip with glass and adds acrylic (with brushed silkscreen underneath) at the top. Both versions feature the same IO at the top, which includes one audio/mic jack, two USB 3.0 ports (Type-A), one USB 3.1 port (Type-C), and a power button.

The O11D MINI black and white are available for pre-order starting November 20th, 2020, at MSRP $99.00 USD. Optional accessories will soon be available after launch, including a replacement backplate to mount the GPU vertically, as well as a hot-swap backplate add-on for the drive cage. In addition, a version of the O11D MINI including a fully modular 700 watt 80+ Gold SFX PSU will be available in the near future.

I've been waiting for this case since it was announced. It has better CPU tower-cooler compatibility than the regular O11D, and 140mm fan compatibility, all at a lower price. Also the ability to use a 120mm fan for exhaust.

Although, to be fair, that cheaper price does end up going into a more-expensive SFX power supply, so "savings" shouldn't be a primary differentiator.

Wow. They changed it to support EATX with 170mm CPU cooler headroom. This is superior than even the regular O11. Thank you Lian Li.
Exactly what I was thinking. Been toying with doing a case swap to scratch the upgrade itch (since I really don't need to spend money on performance components), and was looking into the O11 Dynamic. Was disappointed to see that my Dark Rock 4 wouldn't fit unless I opted for the O11-D XL, which is frankly too big for what I'm working with. This is priced competitively and solves my cooler clearance issue. After taking a look at some reviews, I might have to pick this up.

Although, to be fair, that cheaper price does end up going into a more-expensive SFX power supply, so "savings" shouldn't be a primary differentiator.
Oof, didn't notice that. Thanks for pointing that out

You can move un-used expansion slots above the I/O shield, which shifts the motherboard lower in the case if you use a mini-ITX or micro-ATX board.

This is one of best cases I have seen for those of us that are fans of 140mm fans and 280mm rads.

Compared to the preview version from early this year, looks like they got rid of the glowing der8auer logo/temperature monitor on the front panel in favor of including brackets for mounting water pumps. That seems like a totally reasonable trade-off to hit the same MSRP as planned ($100).

Awesome case. The form factor is the only weird thing about it. Huge for ITX, only holds SFX PSU’s, but can hold up to ATX mobo’s. I feel like mATX is the sweet spot.

It looks good with the GPU vertically mounted, too bad they are stinging you extra for that.
And what's up with saying it supports a 360mm thick Radiator, do they even make them that thick? /s
(should be thick, 360mm Radiator)

That time when Lian Li called a 40+ liter case a “MINI”. Well atleast it supports E-ATX.

Needing a SFX PSU is a dealbreaker for me sadly.
I thought about that too, but it wouldn't take much to cut the side panel so a full sized PSU fits, it would just stick out the side.

Still a great case but like my evolvX I wish they made the vertical mount so for example you can still use the pci slots, so have a vertical graphics card and still use a sound card

They really put a lot of thought in it, I like the fact it can fit air coolers as well upto 170mm. Overall, I like it.
