I question it because stuff like the dynamic, alpha, lancool, and most recently released TU150 all say "Made In China" on their boxes.

The higher end/More expensive and older Lian Li cases were all stamped with made in Taiwan. They also feature the classic rear case sticker which states the model of the product.

I'm sure the newer stuff is better than most case brands at competing price points, but theres a clear downgrade from the original Lian Li case manufacturing.
These cases are a shadow of the aluminum chassis Lian Li made circa 2008.

I just did a rebuild of my system into the PC-O11 Dynamic White w/ my Rampage IV Extreme (E-ATX). It overhangs over the "cable management holes" almost completely covering them. For this reason, I could not put radiator in this spot as I originally planned unless i dont plan on plugging anything in. I'm using a EK XTX 360. I ended up having to put my radiator on top with 3 fans on the top of the case (if only Lian Li made a top panel like Case Labs that allow fan fitment...) and 2 fans inside the case (1 sat over the mobo power connectors and it wouldn't fit.. SAD)

This is how my case looks at this point... Im waiting for a bracket so i can mount the pump/res to the fan spots behind where i couldn't use a radiator in. Leak testing at the moment. I used an old tubing (just changed everything to white) to hold up the video card... Saggier than i remembered

lol this computer is like an EK advertisement. EK everything. What you guys think?

Im sure the layout of things on a mobo are a bit better nowadays than it used to be. Some locations of the connectors required on this mobo is in a nightmarish of a spot. (hence the random 2 cables going up behind the cards to the left mid)

Unfortunately most HEDT boards are still huge and even a lot of the Z390 ones are enormous as well. That was the main reason I originally went with the X299 OCF since it was standard spacing over the Apex. Of course I have a lot more stuff now but the point still stands that case could be an inch longer or so to accommodate the wider boards imo.

I do like your pump mount though, reminds me of my old SR-2 rig I just tubed it up to test and ended up not caring enough to clean it up and mount the pump so it sat on top of the hard drive cages in my P80N lol.

LOL im waiting for my friend to print a bracket for me ! he originally printed it for me last month but its been moved here and there, never where i had hoped it to be... then recently apparently laptops crushed it and broke it so he had to reprint. now i still havent seen him LOL i almost want to just leave it as is...

Exactly. These cases are result of new Aliexpress generation who not care for quality.
They are borned in period of domination Chinese products and Taiwan is 2 level above China.
In China everything is build to last short to be replaced with next cheap product.

I will never buy PC Case again if Lian Li stop to produce their traditional aluminum cases.
Lian Li was first in many things... Dual Chamber case, Wall Mount Case, Vertical GPU installation start after they launch PC-O5/O6/O7 and that was only option to GPU fit inside.
2016 Lian Li with PC-O8, PC-O9, PC-O10.... Competition looked funny to them.
Competition even didn't used Tempered Glass in that moment. Don't even to talk about Desks, like DK-04 and DK-05... Quality of them is oustanding.

Because of that I bought PC-O11 WXC. It's little more expensive but it's build as most expensive Lian Li cases.
Same production process as DK-05 or PC-O10, PC-O8/09.


I thought first to buy PC-O10, but I couldn't do nothing with 2x 240mm radiator place and small space between GPU and front panel
Lian Li and launched PC-O11 WX because good response to PC-O10 WX. Only optimize him better for watercooling.


This is mine case... I love him. I LOVE HIM.
I could imagine HPTX motherboard in side or SSI-EEB Motherboard but case is not so big at all. His size as SSI-EEB Motherboard plus radiators on top and bottom. Look more serious and elegant then Dynamic.

Yeah I just bought a PC-08WBW since Lian Li is liquidating all their older cases on Newegg. Pretty nice for $150.. comes in this week.

The dynamic is better than a lot of cases at its price range, but the quality just isn't the same as the older lian li's. It's pretty sad... I hope Lian Li doesn't completely stop Taiwanese production. The Latest updated "real lian li" seems to be the v-3000 since it has the original PCI brackets.

PC011 (non dynamic) are also real Lian li's, but they unfortunately use steel interior construction kinda like the PC012.

Does anyone have an exact figure of what width 360 can fit in the side slot of the o11 dynamic without having to mod or remove the USB 3.0 headers etc?

My case will arrive in a few days and I'm hoping to use my existing EK PE360 in the side mount and put it behind in the second chamber but am seeing really mixed messages about whether it will fit without having to mod the case or mountings. The rad is 129mm wide

PE requires modification of the radiator shroud or the case. The width clearance sans modifacions is 122 or 125 iirc. Link for rads that fit https://www.overclock.net/forum/161-...l#post27700116 Link for GTS modification guide which needs another 4mm clearance so the PE should be easier https://www.overclock.net/forum/161-...l#post27690358

What you mean original PCI brackets on PC-V3000?
PC-V3000 is fantastic, best classic full tower case, without any doubt.
When I think on real Lian Li all of these cases are build with same type and share same some things.
PC-V3000 have holder for two graphic cards so nicely designed and non visible and removable.

PC-O5, PC-06, PC-O7, PC-O8, PC-O9, PC-O10, PC-O11WXC and ROG Edition, PC-O12, PC-Q37, PC-V3000, DK-02, DK-O3 DK-04, DK-05.
Probably and some more models launched after 2014-2015. Production proces of them is same, same lockers, same installation of panels, same filters. You see that one factory build them and used solutions from previous models because they are really good.

I couldn't buy my favorite PC case PC-O9 or PC-O8 in Europe because their price was too high, 450 euro.
In USA price on discount was less then half. First my wish was PC-O10. But because small space for radiator I decide PC-O11 WXC.
I was so angry when I saw prices on Newegg for some Lian Li models because I had so much money to buy in Europe.

I planned to install Pump on 120mm fan place on back side on PC-O8 and thin 360mm radiator on front and 240mm radiator on top.
But Lian Li is really evil because ask so much in Europe and in USA so much discounts. Lian Li PC-O8WX I wanted cost £390 in UK.

Your Lian Li PC-08 White cost 499 euro in Germany, Caseking.de.
I could pay them 300 but not 400-500 euro for Mid Case.

Thank you, I'm gonna stick the PE in the top slot and have ordered a cheap Magicool G2 to go on the vertical mount since the specs say it's a true 120mm wide rad so hopefully won't need any moding. Now just to have the fun of getting them connected up without getting in eachothers way too much.
