Lian Li PC-D600 info thread - Page 2

post #11 of 122
Hey guys just thought id post my RIG for those that wish to build into the D600. Also since the thread is on Lian Li D600. I find it an awesome case to have. It is challenging to build into but holds all items perfectly and was fun to build into. Its still not all fully complete as yet i am waiting on my custom wiring for my GPU and custom waterblock which is also in yellow and black and the rest of my power cables as well. They will all follow the same color scheme. The case looks like a huge case but its not really that large but it does show off your build nicely.

Parts Are:
- Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 420mm in rear back with 140 Nuctia fans
- Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 Full Copper 240mm Top of case right side
- EK D5 Vario pump. My opinion a fantastic pump
- Bitspower D5 top is designed to work with Swiftech MCP655/Laing D5 pumps
- Bitspower D5/MCP655 Pump Mod Kit Matte Black (sprayed by me to match build)
- Noctua NF-A14 PWM 140mm Fan x 3
- GELID Wing 12 PWM Blue LED. 600-1800RPM x 2
- Enermax T.B Vegas Duo 140mm LED Fan
- Enermax T.B Vegas Duo 120mm LED Fan
- XSPC RayStorm CPU Waterblock for Intel
- XSPC Memory Water Block and Side Plate Set
- XSPC Photon 270 Tube Reservoir
- MSI MPOWER MAX motherboard
- Intel I7 4770k Chip (running 4,4k constant)
- Gskill 2400mhz 16gig ram
- Aquacomputer aquaero 6 XT USB fan controller, graphic LCD, touch control, IR remote control
- Samsung 840 Pro Series 256GB SSD (in raid 0)
- OCZ Vortex 4 PRO ( awesome SSD super fast but is stand alone to expensive) 500gig
- Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 OC Edition 4GB (I love this card so much it fast and great OC. Came from my other build and found out that there is no waterblock for it. But in the end i found a waterblock for it link below but have to wait for it.

@ BazG,


You have a nice build there - I like the way the SSD's are mounted onto the side of the HDD/ODD rack, as due to the thickness of your rad and fans, you couldn't use the SSD bracket on the bottom of the case.

I'm in the process of finishing off my build, but as others have already stated, the biggest problem with this case seems to be the very small gap for cable management between the side of the HDD rack and the back of the motherboard tray.

Thanks very much Reworker

Yup you are correct the space between the HDD rack and the motherboard tray is super close. It make cable management a pain. But i was able to hide some cables behind it but as you can see it is very hard. Also with the rad at 45mm thick and then fans as well it just went over the SSD tray.

Plus i wanted to fit a flow meter in for my Aquares 6 so it left me no space for the SSD. I found allot of space between the HDD rack and case cover and was able to put the cable's nicely hidden away into the HDD rack . Sorry in the current picture it doesn't show that. Also it looked cool having them there.

I also realized the picture there shows my unfinished cable management i will post a new one with the cable management done. I was able to get most of the cable's hidden except for the large one's. Its clear in the middle now and looks good. Everything is a very tight fit into the case even with the reservoir been 270mm but i like it some how because everything looks nice and compact. no huge empty spaces smile.gif

Please post your build once done would to see. thanks:thumb:

@ BazG,


Indeed cable management is something of an art form in this case if you want to achieve a neat and tidy build. I was a little surprised that Lian-Li only include two of the rubber cable-management loops that attach to the back of the motherboard tray - I could do with a few more of these.

As you have stated, the close proximity between the HDD rack and the back of the mobo tray means that routing the main ATX 24 PIN cable and PCI-E cables can be a real challenge. If only the case was half an inch wider here it would have made all the difference.

With your top 45mm rad, it looks like you were on the very limit with clearance on the mobo, but you managed to connect the 12v EPS cable; I can't really tell from the photos if you could connect both.

I love the look of the case though, and went for the D600 over the Phanteks Enthoo Primo (which has excellent cable management and virtually unmatched water-cooling ability out of the box), because I didn't want another black, large tower case. As you said the case can be a challenge, but it is a lot of fun to build in and different from the norm.

Online photos make it appear massive, but the reality is that it's quite compact, with very little wasted space.

I found these very helpfu for cable managment, since Lian Li does not provide enough clips: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/18327/ele-1158/ModSmart_Large_Wire_Bundle_Mounting_Kit_-_Black_WIRE-MTL-BK.html?tl=g2c34s95

Not completed or totally cleaned up yet... but you get the idea. The EVGA 1500 I have has individually sleeve cables, and they tend to look messy unless stitched. Haven't gone there yet, although I am thinking about it..

@ Reworker

Yup as you said it's an art. For the rad on top it was a close fit as well. I will post another pic on that area. I actually had to fit the EPS cable first and mother board then fit the rad in. Was unable to do it another way as the rad sits against the cable but just. Otherwise the rest like fan cables where easy. Also I only have one 8 pin EPS cable plugged in. Also for clips I have found the lain Li one's on ebay and a store near me but looks like clips on has found some nice one's from frozenpc.

@ cgipson1,


Thanks for the tip about the cable clips. I use the Silverstone single-sleeved PSU cables for their own power supplies, and while these look a great deal better than the standard PSU cables, unless they are managed they can end up looking a little messy.

I had a read of your build log (nice work by the way), and noticed that you may structural changes to the case, specifically the top section above the motherboard area, and the rear rad mounting area on the HDD cage side. Did you notice any changes to the structural rigidity of the case?

I know that in one of the early posts about the D600 there was a comment that the motherboard tray was a little too flexible, but I have not found it be any kind of issue.

Thanks! Haven't seen any issues with the structural aspect, especially after getting the radiators mounted. They provide a massive amount of support... very rigid. Without the rads, the case is so light and easy to handle... not really an issue then either. I did have to drill out a couple of rivets and redo them.. they were slightly loose, and allowed some play. Now it is solid. I do really like the case... although it is a bit more of a challenge to build (especially really loaded) than a larger case would be.

Finished cable management one or two tweaks still to come. I am just waiting on my custom cable for ATX 24pin from the rear to psu. Other picture shows how close the rad is to mobo.
