[Build Log] Diva Takes The Easy Way Out . . . . An all white, Lian Li - Lancool 2 build

OK, so everyone's used to my crazy, over-the-top, water cooling builds, . . . . and they are fun to engineer and execute,


but with the confinements of Covid-19 restrictions and lockdowns,


I figured why not take the easy way out for a change and go AIO with a fairly straight forward build.


I mean worst case scenario is that's it's just a boring, ho-hum, snoozer of a build that I completely change mid stream.




So what are we working with . . . . .


I need a new PC for editing, and maybe for my Oculus Rift. . . . don't care about gaming, got an 8700K / RTX 2970 Super rig that games just fine for the miniscule amount of gaming I do.


I really liked the Lian Li Lancool 2 White version when I saw it on YouTube . . . well except it's more like a penguin than white, with most of the inside and all the basement being flat black, but a few rattle cans could put that right.


Anyway . . . when it popped up on Amazon, I hit the add-to-cart button, and added the usual add-on items for it like the USB-C cable, the vertical GPU mount, and the RGB strip for the side rail.


I also ordered a full set of new stainless steel hardware, as anything black oxide finished turns to rust in a matter of weeks down here in the tropics, and stainless always looks nice with white.


The case got here a couple weeks ago, which gave me time to paint the black parts I wanted to, white, while I waited on the hardware. The McMaster hardware go here yesterday, so it's been one of those SAR, (some assembly required) Saturdays.




Since this is planned as a "White Build", I went with an Asus X570 Prime-Pro board . . . not a top tier mobo, but decent overall . . . and did I mention it's mostly white themed . . . which was its prime, (see what I did there) selling point.


Got a 3950X, 64 Gb of Trident-Z RGB Neo 3600 memory, and an Asus 2080 Super GPU to do the heavy lifting, with a Samsung 1TB 970 Pro for the OS drive and a 1TB 970 Evo plus for storage.


I'll be trying to keep it cool via a 360 AIO, . . . . a white one of course . . . .




There will be plenty of RGB, as usual for a Diva build, got lots of Corsair LL and QL fans, and to try to keep airflow as somewhat of a priority, I went with an 800W Silverstone SFX PSU, so that it leaves the basement less encumbered than a full atx PSU, even if it is considerably more expensive.


Here's a video I found that has a layout very much like I plan to use:






And here's his build video where you can see just how much of the inside of the Lancool 2, White Version, isn't white at all:

Some pics of the tear down, painting, and reassembly to get the new Lancool 2 ready to build in . . . . (just noticed that the top left corner of the front panel wasn't snapped in completely, just a little faux pas on my part, not a problem with the case alignment)

Hey, thanks guys . . . .


Just waiting for some more of my stuff to ship from Amazon to Miami, so it can end up in a container for the trip here to the Islands.


Whatever gets to the forwarder in Miami by noon on a Wednesday, makes it out on that Thursday's boat, which gets here about the next Tuesday, and then if I'm really fortunate, it's cleared customs so I can pick it up by Friday . . . if I'm not so lucky, it's more like Monday or Tuesday of the next week.


If it gets to Miami after noon on Wednesday, then it has to wait for the next week's boat.


Such is the downside, (along with the frickin' hurricanes) of living in America's Paradise . . .

I hear that, I lived in Key Largo during Irma. It sucked.

That, among other reasons, is why I'm pretty much just a lurker here these days, and seldom bother with build logs anymore.


But for some inexplicable masochistic urge, I figured I'd give it another shot . . . .


Simple enough build to not take too long, with no significant mods, outside of complete teardown and painting the black insides to white . . .




So many 011 Dynamic builds, but couldn't find any Lancool 2 builds, so why not . . .




Now if I can just find some of these new Lian Li Strimer Plus cable sets!
