REVIEW

After building in the Lian-Li O11D Mini, we found the case doesn’t make much sense being Mini-ITX, due to the large section of empty space left below the GPU (5 expansion slots / 420mm long). The ITX form factor of the O11D Mini is more about marketing than practicality in our opinion. On the flip side, the Lian-Li O11 Dynamic Mini does make for one of / if not the best compact MicroATX/ATX case.

Although the O11D Mini supports large air coolers, the case is better suited towards AIO’s and liquid cooling. We suggest using a 280MM radiator due to the empty space caused by using two 120mm fans as pictured above. If you intend on on air cooling the CPU in the O11D Mini, we recommend only using 140mm fans for the side intake.
