The Lian Li PC-O11 Air is a more affordable variant of the Dynamic, which has been co-developed between Lian Li and Der8auer. It swaps some of the more elaborate building materials, adds fans, and sports a lower price tag - all to appease to a broader, mainstream market.

Nice review. I love the addition of some RGB videos. @cadaveca 's RGB RAM or Motherboard review could totally use something like that instead of still images.

When you say no limitation for gpu even fill in with radiators , it's okay and wrong ..... It's ok if the card are in aircooling. I have it @home you can't mount waterblock on the gpu in normal position and close the door with an asus strix, evga FTw, Msi TRIO and all GPU with a large PCB.... If you want to use those card in watercooling you have to mount them on a riser !

The 155mm max HS is no go for me, should of been like 10mm more.
Otherwise, for a water system, it is a good case or nonOC system.

This series PC-O11 is definitely something special on field of PC Cases last year.
I ordered feets SD-01B and HD-323X Dual 2.5" SSD/HDD to 3.25" both from aluminium black for my PC-O11WXC.
I will never pay any more single cent for steel cases. except if they build from stainless steel.

Its a pretty case for sure. I think the upper and front panels would have looked better in aluminum.

I only could say thanks to me because I decide to stay with classic chasis.Because hard availability of Lian Li PC-O11 WXC in East Europe I almost decide to buy Raijintek PAEAN or Cooltek Jonsbo MOD1 or eventually Crystal 570X. Friends immediately clear my head that Crystal 570X is to similar type and hardware orientation as my 650D and it's not aluminium only 40 euro less than PC-O11WXC. But PAEAN and Cooltek MOD1 I didn't bought only because they are not classic and I was scared that after 1-2 years they will be monotonous and I will look for another.
They are great cases, and for other people who don't feel like that don't need to afraid of that.
But for me is classic case and I couldn't be more right because I decide to stay with PC-O11WXC.

Plan was PC-O8 but I didn't had money for him. That's my first tip for best small E-ATX combatible aluminium case. Cost 390 euro discount from 460 euro.
Lian Li PC-O8 WX with RGB Kit ( PC-O8 SWX not E-ATX Combatible).
Dear good how I like that case...

My idea for PC case is...
If he look like teen toy near NAD or Arcam audio Hi Fi equipment don't buy him.
Need to be equal and classy.

I don't like fat cases like these, it looks like they just slapped a SFF and standard case together and said that's good enough.
Sorry, not good enough for my desktop where I keep my case, I don't want usable area reduced that much by a giant cube.

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?
