How do I go about Air Cooling the Lian Li PC-011 Dynamic?

I will order the following parts:

Case: Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic
Fans for intake (side panel): 3 Lian Li Bora Digital Fans
Motherboard: Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite
CPU: AMD 3900x
GPU: AMD Radeon 5700XT
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-U12A

Using 3 fans on the side only, is enough?
3 intake only? 3 exhaust only?
I can´t figure out.
Any help will be appreciated

3900X, 5700X and X570 Aorus Elite are fine but I suggest waiting a bit more and getting an AIB 5700XT with better cooling instead of the blower version.

Similarly, NH-U12A @ 100$/€ is pretty overpriced. You can get Thermalright Le Grand Macho RT or a similar high end cooler for less and they'll probably provide better cooling.

I'm also not a big fan of O11 Dynamic's design and it doesn't come with any fans. It also has pretty low CPU cooler clearance if you're going air cooling. I'd probably go for something like Phanteks Evolv X instead that already comes with 3 decent fans which is all you need as intake fans and you shouldn't need any exhaust fans. Do remove unused back PCI-E covers to further help front intake fans push hot air out of the case.

there's a 154mm CPU cooler height limit in the PC-011. Rules out a lot of coolers.

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)
Intel i7 6700 Skylake @ X4 4709mhz (+38.5%)
Intel i5 6400 Skylake @ X4 4588mhz (+69.9%)

The premier air cooling cases are Phanteks P600S , Fractal Design Meshify S2, Meshify C not Lian Li O11.

The Lian Li case is more suited to closed loop or open loop liquid.

I don't know if you can even fit the mugen 5 Rev B in the Lian Li O11, the mugen 5 is supposedly 154.5mm. Maybe that 0.5mm might fit, maybe not. The official Lian Li sites lists 155mm cooler height.


The NH-U12A probably isn't going to fit in there since it's 158mm.

According to spec and this build 154,5mm cooler should fit, at least on intel. On amd the socket and CPU are probably couple mm higher.

E: According to this intel and amd have very similar height of the socket + CPU.

Before you dump the money in liquid, I was running my i7-7700k at 4.8ghz in the mid 60s by just running all positive pressure on the case fans using the 3x 120mm on the side of the case. No other intakes or exhaust. Coupled that with a Cryorig h7 Quad Lumi and an extra fan on the heatsink for push pull. Worked fine for me over the past year. I could run 5.0ghz on it and still maintain temps in the 80s but didnt want to run that warm. Yes, its not the best case in terms of cooler clearance, but it was more worth it to me then spending multiple hundreds of dollars on a custom loop for a .2ghz increase in clock speed.
