I am going to be redoing my build moving from the standard PC-O11 to the ROG version of the case, the PC-O11WGX.
As I go I will be posting lots of pictures and comparing and contrasting the two cases.
I will be installing 3 X 360mm radiators and I will be watercooling the CPU and GPU. Is this overkill? Yes it is...!
Already I know that I will have to do some custom stuff to get all three radiators to fit within the case, but I want to be able to do that without any major case modifications.
I will be reusing my vertical GPU mount for this case. This will enable me to place my GPU vertically even though I have a radiator mounted on the bottom of the case. I have a short write up here:Custom Vertical GPU mount Lian-Li PC-O11
I am going to be sticking with the EK ZMT tubing, because right now I don't think I'm ready to go for hard tubing. This is really only my second watercooling build, with my first being the standard PC-O11 case.
I don't think there is another case out there, that with very little modification, can fit 3, 360mm radiators, in such a small footprint. I think, with this case, there is very little wasted space.
Also, I want to thank @labjet
, he helped me figure out some pieces in my build and was a good sounding board for ideas. Thanks a lot!
