[Build Log] Lian Li PC-O6SX wall mount build

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey everybody!

It's time for a new build and I decided to do a build log this time. Hard tubing custom loop incoming!
Feedback and suggestions are highly appreciated!

Goals
  • wall-mountable
  • small
  • clean
  • classy

I'm fed up having either big towers on the floor, or cube-shaped cases on the desk. I was looking for wall-mountable cases and thought the Thermaltake Core P series would be great. Unluckily I don't want my case to be open on any side because of my two curious cats. Recently I discovered the Lian Li PC-O series and man, they look beautiful. Because I want a small, powerful and clean looking build, my decision fell for the PC-O6SX Micro-ATX case. It looks classy, has plenty of space on the backside for cable routing and space for a normal ATX PSU. Perfect!
For the big picture, I want to keep the colors simple: The case is black and the highlights will probably be orange.

For the mainboard it is important that there is a mono waterblock available. I really like the look of those and within such a small case I think it's better to cover the mosfets as well because the airflow might be not as good as within a bigtower. Another two limitions: Nvidia GPU and Intel CPU/Chipset.

The Rad has to be thinner than 36mm to fit into the top of the case. I will probably take the EK-CoolStream SE 360 as it is only 26mm thick and will do the job. For the Rad-Fans I will most likely take the NF-P12-PWM from Noctua.

For the tubes I will try to align the pipes as parallel as possible. For the edges I plan to use 90 degree angle fittings, this will be more expansive, but in my opinion these look badass most of the time. The exact routing and where or if I will use pass-through fittings will be determined when the case is here and I can see how much space is left there.

Long story short, this is the actual planned part list:

Placed the first big order today!
The following pieces are ordered and hopefully on their way soon:
  • Case: Lian Li PC-O6SX Micro-ATX
  • Mainboard: Asus STRIX Z270G Gaming, Intel Z270 Mainboard, RoG
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-7700K 4,2 GHz (Kaby Lake)
  • RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum Series DDR4-2400, CL14 - 32 GB Quad Kit
  • PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA G2 80 Plus Gold 850W

I will post a ton of pics when they arrive. I'm pretty excited about measuring all the stuff and plan the watercooling parts.
Hype!!

Another small update!

The first order has arrived and I pre-assembled a little bit to get an idea how much space I got in the case. It turns out, plenty!




I removed the top of the case and got rid of the preinstalled fans, to prepare everything for the rad and the real fans.


With the mainboard and the PSU in place, it turns out there is a lot of space left:


So I set up the next order to progress with the build:

  • EK-XRES 100 Revo D5 PWM
  • EK-FB ASUS Z270E Strix RGB Monoblock
  • MagiCool G2 Slim Radiator 16 FPI - 360mm
  • 4x Corsair SP120 PWM Quiet Edition
  • Ton of fittings and stuff for the loop

I took the EK-XRES 100 Revo D5 PWM (the smallest one) which will fit in nicely without looking too overloaded.
Further I decided to change the fans to Corsair SP120 PWM Quiet Edition ,which will probably be colored later.
Initially I wanted to go with the EK-CoolStream SE 360, but due to limited availability I will take the MagiCool G2 Slim Radiator 16 FPI - 360mm version which is cheaper and according to a random benchmark on the internet a little bit better in terms of cooling.

Order placed, hyping for the next steps!
