Lian Li O11 Dynamic EVO case has reversible design

Posted on Saturday, Dec 18 2021 @ 12:03 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Lian Li's O11 case family gets a new addition. The Taiwanese case maker listened to feedback from the tech community to create the O11 Dynamic EVO. The new variant offers tempered glass side panels and a reversible design, allowing you to display your components on the left or right. It also supports larger components, moveable modular I/O, and better cooling.

The case will be sold in the US in three versions; the Black model will cost $169.99 while the White and Harbor Grey editions are priced at $179.99. O11 Dynamic EVO
LIAN LI Industrial Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of chassis and PC accessories, announces the evolution of the O11 series with the O11 Dynamic EVO. Inspired by previous designs of the O11D series and continuing on the collaboration with Der8auer, the O11D EVO’s final form is a result of community feedback. Available in Black, White, or Harbor Grey, the O11D EVO introduces innovative features such as a reversible design to give users the option to display the PC on the left or right, larger components support and improved cooling with 140mm fan support on all sides, a moveable modular I/O, as well as an array of accessories which improve cooling performance and customizes the aesthetic of the system.

Normal Mode - Reversible Mode
Without additional accessories, the O11D EVO offers the possibility to reverse the orientation of the chassis. The clever modularity and symmetrical design of the case allows the bottom part to be installed at the top, as well as all internals to be flipped, thus achieving a system that can be placed on the left side of the user while keeping the showcase feature classic to the O11D series.

Powerful Hardware and Cooling Ready
In order to keep up with the increasing requirement of new CPUs and GPUs, larger and more efficient cooling solutions become necessary. The O11D EVO can support CPU coolers up to 167mm in height, as well as graphics cards up to 422mm in length. Each top, side, and bottom bracket can support up to 3x 120mm or 2x 140mm fans. For ease of installation, the top and bottom brackets can slide out of their mounting location and are interchangeable, while the side bracket can be flipped, via the release of a toolless latch, to adjust the clearance with top and bottom mounted hardware. In addition, a second PSU can be installed in the second chamber of the O11D EVO by removing the drive cage.

Customizable I/O Location and More
All I/O ports have been moved to an independent I/O module that can be quickly relocated to the bottom front, left, or right side of the case. This maintains a minimalist design on the front panel, which now only features a power button that wraps around the edge and can be pressed from both sides. The O11D EVO features a built-in ARGB strip along the edge of the front glass panel. Controlled via the side panel LED buttons, the light strip supports motherboard sync mode, and is compatible with the UNI HUB for L-Connect software control.

5 Additional Accessories
The O11D EVO is capable of even more with the addition of a wide selection of accessories.

Upright GPU Kit
The additional upright GPU kit is available for users seeking a more unique mounting GPU option — upright beside their motherboard. This position opens the main chamber and creates an unrestricted chimney-style configuration when doing custom water cooling or using AIOs. The kit comes with a PCIe 4.0 riser cable and includes an adjustable brace mechanism that helps keep thick or thin water-cooled GPUs sturdy in place.

Front Mesh Kit
For power users requiring improved performance, the front mesh panel kit turns the O11D EVO’s front panel into a large air intake surface and allows for the mounting of 3x120mm or 2x 140mm fans, creating a straight-through airflow which will improve CPU cooling performance and direct fresh air access to upright GPUs.

Vertical GPU Kit
Designed especially for the O11D EVO, the Vertical GPU Kit can be installed in a lower or higher position to offer more clearance at the bottom of the case. In the low position, up to 50mm of clearance is available for radiators and fans, in the higher position, a total of 90mm is available. The kit includes a PCIe 4.0 riser cable.

Top I/O Kit
Designed for users who prefer to keep their computer case on the floor, the top I/O kit uses the I/O ports from the original module and relocates them to the top aluminum strip for easier access.

Additional I/O Kit
Ideal for users who prefer to have their peripherals or dongles connected at the front, the Additional I/O Kit adds 2 USB 3.0 Type A ports and a USB 3.1 Type C port.

The O11D EVO is available for pre-order starting December 17, 2021. For a limited time, the black and white version of the O11D EVO will be offered at a $20 discount at Overclockers UK, Caseking, and Newegg, with Newegg shoppers also getting free shipping.
