During Lian Li 2021 Digital Expo, the case manufacturer presented us with four new cases, the new UNI FAN AL120 and AL140, the O11D Mini Snow Edition, a new O11D Mini bundle including SFF power supplies, and pricing and availability details of the Odyssey X chassis.
Starting with the Q58, this 14.3L SFF case features a half tempered glass, half mesh side panel, and a two-tone reflective and matte aluminium front panel. Despite its reduced size, this case support mini-ITX motherboards, 320mm long GPUs, 280mm radiators, and both SFX and ATX power supplies.
Lian Li also showed another SFF case named A4-H2O. Made in collaboration with DAN Cases, the A4-H2O is a 10.4L case inspired by the original DAN A4 case, featuring an all-aluminium construction. Unlike the Q58, this case only supports SFX and SFX-L power supplies, 315mm long GPUS with up to 2.7-inch slots in thickness, and 240mm radiators. The top, left, and right panels of this case are vented for increased airflow, which is very important for such a small case. It also comes with 2x 2.5-inch drive bays behind the front panel.
The Lian Li V3000+ is an aluminium full tower based on the original V300. With support for up to 3x 480mm radiators and a 360mm radiator, 16x 120mm fans, two systems, two PSUs, and horizontally or vertically mounted 420mm long GPUs, this case was designed to support basically anything you throw at it. Besides all this, users can still mount up to 16x HDDs or 19x SSDs, making the V3000+ also worth considering as an option for a storage server. Owners of the V3000+ will be able to choose between an aluminium solid front panel promoting silent operation or a fine mesh front panel for increased airflow. Both the bottom left and bottom right of the case also have a mesh shroud to further increase airflow. The top half of the left panel is tempered glass, while the top half of the right panel uses solid aluminium.
Lian Li is launching a new O11D case named O11D EVO. Based on the original O11D, the O11D EVO will offer features that were exclusive to the O11D XL at a smaller size and a unique method to mount your GPU beside the motherboard in an upright position. Both the top and right meshed panels have been redesigned, acting as dust filter while also increasing airflow. Unlike the O11D, the new O11D EVO’s aluminium strip is now a door that users can open to access the I/O front panel and 2x 2.5-inch drive bays. Moreover, the new O11D EVO also comes with an ARGB LED strip across the whole case. With support for up to E-ATX motherboards, 445mm long GPUs, 200mm long PSUs, the O11D EVO can be arranged to fit multiple configurations through the use of three brackets: one for the bottom, one for the top, and one beside the motherboard. Depending on the configuration, this case can fit up to 3x 360mm radiators, 8x 2.5-inch drives, or 4x 3.5-inch drives.
Lian Li’s new fans are the UNI FAN AL120 and AL140. The AL120 model will produce an airflow of up to 64.5CFM and a 2.62mmH2O of static pressure at a maximum speed of 1900RPM and a rated noise of 28.3dB. Both the AL 120 and AL140 feature RGB lighting and a brushed aluminium side plates with reflective edges to give them a distinctive look. These fans will come with the new UNI hub, which expands the features of the redesigned Lian Li RGB software L-Connect. Available in black and white, the AL120 and AL140 will launch on April 2021.
The O11D Mini case series will receive a Snow Edition, featuring an all-white interior and exterior, without the black accents of the standard white O11D Mini. Besides the Snow Edition, Lian Li has also introduced a new O11D Mini bundle with a 750W (SP750) or an 850W (SP850) SFF power supply. The O11D Mini snow edition will launch next month, priced at $109.99. The bundles are planned to release in April, priced at $179.99 for the standard O11D Mini and SP750 PSU, $199.99 for the standard O11D Mini and SP850 PSU, and $209.99 for the Snow Edition O11D Mini and SP850 PSU.
Lastly, Lian Li detailed the pricing and availability of the Odyssey X full-tower chassis. Announced in 2020, the Odyssey X will finally release in May, priced at $449. You can see the whole Lian Li 2021 Digital Expo HERE.
