Lian Li has launched a new case as part of the O11D series. Available in both black and white, the new O11 Dynamic Mini is a modular case with extended support for fans, radiators, pumps, and components featuring a simple and modern design that allows users to showcase their systems.
Just like the other O11D series' cases, the O11 Dynamic Mini has been developed in collaboration with the famous overclocker der8auer. Smaller than the original O11 Dynamic, the Mini variant offers most of the same features in a smaller design (38L litres), while also increasing its functionality thanks to its modular design.
There are 7x expansion slots by default, but these can be reduced either 5x or 3x to change the cases' interior layout. Like the other O11D cases, the O11D mini also features a dual-chamber design: one for the PSU, storage drives and cabling, and the other for the remaining components of the system.
The case is mostly made of aluminium and tempered glass, with slight differences between both colours. The front panel is fully covered in tempered glass on the black case and made of brushed aluminium and tempered glass on the white case. The I/O panel, which features 2x USB 3.0 ports, a USB-C 3.1 port, HD-Audio and the power button, is covered acrylic on the black case, while the white one is made of aluminium coated in white.
These cases support ATX, M-ATX, and mITX motherboards. Regarding the power supply compatibility, you can only use SFX or SFX-L PSUs. There's 395mm of clearance for the graphics card and 170mm of clearance for a CPU cooler. Fan support is quite extensive with up to 3x 120mm/2x 140mm on top, 2x 120/140mm on the side, 3x 120mm/2x 140mm on the bottom and a 120mm fan on the rear. Radiator support follows a similar approach, allowing users to mount a 360/280/240mm on top, a 280/240mm on the side, and a 360/280/240mm on the bottom. There's support for up to 2x 2.5-inch drives plus another drive cage with support to 2x 2.5/3.5-inch drives. Dust filters were included on the top, bottom, and side vents.
The Lian Li O11 Dynamic Mini is available for pre-order at Overclockers UK in black and white, both priced at £89.99. Optional accessories for these cases such as a vertical GPU mounting bracket and a hot-swap backplate add-on for the drive cage will launch at a later date. A bundle with a modular 700W 80+ Gold SFX PSU will also be launched in a near future.
