The Lian Li Lancool One Digital aims to revive the Lancool brand under a new vision from within Lian Li. Aimed at the gamer, but with clear design cues of the parent company and what they are known for, the Lancool One Digital fuses affordability with the design language while adding all the usual features one would look for in a gaming chassis.

They are, at best, hair filters. If you're going to use this metal mesh as a filter, you may as well have nothing at all. Well, I guess it's nice if you've got a cat. But the finer mesh fabric-like filters are far superior.

A lot of them would be horrible.... even mine was horrible (came with 3 140mm) until I threw in a couple of massive fans.

I wish these case reviews had systems that were actually turned on and thermals/airflow tested.
I've been saying the same thing for a decent while now. More or less sarcastically, of course.


I'm in agreement with everyone else here - TPU, you do good content in other areas, but your case reviews are hot garbage. You never test thermals, and you never test noise. Most of the time your reviews don't even look at the design in relation to these areas to make a guess about how the case could perform.

Still, if I ever want to start a PC case manufacturing company, I know where to send review samples first - I'm guaranteed an award if TPU gets hold of my product - 411 case reviews in the database, and of those, 201 have scores above 9, and 364 have scores above 8! The worst reviewed case in TPU history was the Silverstone Temjin TJ08, in 2006, and even that got a 6.2!

Solidy more than half marks for a case the conclusion described as "Overall, the case is definitely not worth the price.".

If I were to grade TPU's case coverage at this point, I think I know what my comment would be - "Must try harder"
Jayztwocents had an editing rig in one of these and had to keep the side panels off to get acceptable temps, since the front DOES restrict airflow quit significantly.

Then again, this review wouldn't have told you that, since it features zero thermal testing - even comparitive, or with uncontrolled thermal environments (Gamersnexus test all cases in uniform room temperatures for example).

Another day, another phoned in, trash case review from Darksaber, sadly. All he reviews is looks and build experience. He doesn't even try to understand acoustics or thermals, and as a result he's given a 9 points or more score to MORE THAN HALF of all the cases he's ever reviewed. (Since 2006).
Another case review with no thermal results, no noise results, no discussion of the cooling performance of the case, no discussion of whether the case effectively dampens noise.

At this point, why are you even bothering to do case reviews? Literally the only thing these are good for is telling someone the specs (Which are elsewhere), that the case exists (Which is elsewhere), and whether the case fits your, and only your, specific set of test hardware (Which they always do, because PC case makers aren't trash in 2018).
I'm just really tired of how completely phoned in these case reviews are. There has been absolutely no real development in test methodology for over a decade as far as I can tell, and Darksaber honestly seems to not WANT to discuss the merits or demerits of any case, instead simply regurgitating information easily found elsewhere or in photographs, then making a couple of token, entirely visual, observations that most savvy users could pull out of the picture gallery without assistance.

The worst mark of any case review on TPU is a 6, and that was over a decade ago. Darksaber gave the Bitfenix Enso resounding praise and a 9.5 score, despite the fact that Gamers Nexus reviewed the same case MONTHS beforehand (November 15th 2017 versus March 19th 2018) and clearly showed that the case was one of the worst thermal performers on the market, being even hotter in *stock* format, than the Cooler Master H500P - a case that by March 2018 when the review had been published, had already been revised by Cooler Master due to poor feedback surrounding it's restricted front intake. Even Play3r.net, who did an almost equally worthless review with no thermal data, said "I initially had reservations about the amount of air intake the front panel could provide, but in operation, our test system didn’t show any signs of overheating. More detailed testing would be needed to ascertain the actual effectiveness here, but for the average user, I don’t believe there would be an issue." - This sure as hell ain't test data, but at least Play3r seem to be able to actually *consider* potential thermal issues, even if they're too lazy to even check their CPU temps after installation - Darksaber's review didn't mention thermals at any point.

Tom's hardware also at the very least mentioned "The front of the case lacks vents of any sort. All incoming air is drawn into the chassis via a cutout in the bottom inner edge of the fascia." - They also tested the case (although only provided numbers for 3 competing cases rather than contextualising those numbers versus an actual, performance oriented case), and concluded in their con's section "Mediocre thermal performance" and mentioned noise also throughout their review.

Guru3D also reviewed the Enso and, while they also failed to provide any thermal data, they made reasonable criticisms of the build quality and design throughout their review, they tested for noise levels, and they also concluded "The airflow is ok enough for a mainstream build, the air intake at the front bottom and exhaust at the back and top will take care of that. We do recommend you to actively use the top side vent (and never use the closed lid), this is trivial for your cooling needs. So yeah granted, airflow is a bit borderline though and could have been a lot better."

Compare that to the TPU review and... well. I'll give DS some credit - The word "airflow" does appear in the article. Once. When he's talking about the intake for the damned PSU, not the rest of the system in any way.

Basically what I'm getting at is that the majority of case reviews out there in the space are complete garbage, but the ones on TPU somehow manage to be the worst of the bunch in terms of completely ignoring the two primary performance concerns relevant to any case design.
I can understand why there's no temp or noise data in this review, since the case clearly targets a market that has no concern for either of those things.

Looking forward to seeing temperature testing and noise testing return in the next case review though!
Well, that sure is a mighty lack of front ventilation.

Hope those 2x front fans have jet engine levels of static pressure. They're sure as fuck not being helped out by that front panel.

Hopefully we can get a review of it through TPU at some point, so that any thermal impact can be properly quantified and measured.
Another fabulously useless case review.

Clue is in the name - O11 Air.

As opposed to the O11 Dynamic, which was built for watercooling, the focus of this case - Literally the *only reason it exists as a separate product* is to provide a more effective cooling layout for people using air cooling.

What does this review not cover? Air cooling. Or cooling at all. Or airflow at all.

Other outlets (Hello gamer's nexus) have covered the same case and found that the included dust filters are much too restrictive. Darksaber didn't even do anything as unscientific as tech sites used to do in 2004, holding a hand behind the fan when it was installed to judge airflow.

Bit pathetic, really, isn't it? To be outdone, convincingly, by a testing methodology from 2004 that was abandoned because it, in itself, was completely unreliable?
Oh look. A case where the primary point of interest is it's interesting cooling setup.

Oh look. No temperature testing, or even a vague nothing, sweetly whispered in that direction.
You even mentioned Cooler Master's claims regarding this, in your conclusion, but you didn't even bother to state whether you think those claims are bollocks or not.

Don't worry, I don't blame you - you can't state either way because you clearly don't actually know.

Fortunately, as usual, Gamers Nexus produced a real review:

https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/3384-cooler-master-sl-600m-review-thermals-build-quality-noise
You know, it's funny isn't it Darksaber... the conversation in this thread is 100% concerned with thermals in this case.

If only, if only you'd tested thermals! If only you'd done that!
For me this is not Lian Li.

That's why this is branded Lancool. Lancool is Lian-Li's budget line.

Yeah exactly... Thermaltake is making stylish, expensive all aluminum chassis and lian li is making cheap crap...
