Lian Li o11 Dynamic, 2xLS360 rad + 3 fans layout.

Hi all, I'm about to assemble my 1st loop cpu/gpu soft tubing, in the case above.
My question is about layout. Assuming they will fit, what would best? All 9 fans will be corsair sp120. Why? Just cause I have them lain around.

Top and side exhaust and 3 fans bottom intake
Top exhaust and bottom intake with 3 fans side intake
Bottom and side intake with 3 fans top exhaust
Top and bottom exhaust with side intake
Top and bottom intake with 3 fans side exhaust

Any other suitable suggestions?

Many thanks

EDIT, it's kinda finished. I didn't like the "foggy" finish of the glass of the case but I won't do anything else. Perhaps in the future I'll flip the fans of the rad, and add again a drain valve.

Specs are,
Rainjitek D5 pump
2xLS360
Bykski 10/16 fittings
Bykski GPU and CPU block
Corsair SP120

First off Welcome to OCN! Hope you find what you need here as you go.

Usually your #2 option "Top exhaust and bottom intake with 3 fans side intake" will yield best cpu temps and overall case temps. What gear are you pushing in this 011? I would put a rad on top and on side intake. Leave bottom for the extra 3 fans by their lonesome.

Thanks,
-SGT

Hi sgtgates, many thanks.
I'll be cooling a 1800x and a Vega 7.
I really don't know what to think, option 2 seems fine but also bottom and side intake + top exhaust looks fine. I think that in the end of the day it won't chage much as long as I have one rad in one rad out and 3 fans exhaust, or, both rads out and 3 fans exhaust no matter the layout.
Your suggestion looks in the counter hand of the air operation, as hot air goes up, the 3 fans will need to pull the hot air through the case to be exhausted.
I'll keep my eye on the next answers, if any , as amazon delayed the delivery of the water and without it I cannot to anything.

I never tried it with a rad in the bottom but I did the following with the sig rig.
  1. Rad side in, Rad top in, Bottom fans out
  2. Rad side in, Rad top in, Bottom fans in
  3. Rad side in, Rad top out, Bottom fans in
  4. Rad side in, Rad top out, Bottom fans out

1 came out tops with 3 close behind (1-2c water delta) and 2 was a stinker (canceled the test early). Afterwards I also used foam on the side and top on setup 1 to make sure they weren't recirculating any air but the benefits were negligible if any for my use case.

Hi Ryan, thanks for your answer.

Rad side in, Rad top in, Bottom fans out - that way the hot air needs to travel all the way down, don't know if is the best
Rad side in, Rad top in, Bottom fans in - this will make a hot box
Rad side in, Rad top out, Bottom fans in - that is one of reliable option, most likely to go with
Rad side in, Rad top out, Bottom fans out - same as option 01, hot air needs to travel down to get exausted

I'm top considering,
Rad top in, rad bottom in, fan side out
Rad top out, bottom rad in, side fan out

And last,
Rad top out, bottom fan in, side rad out

Intake on rads is almost always better and virtually any amount of airflow from a fan will overcome the effect of heat rising so you can just ignore that. Test 2 was just a why not scenario the results were expected.

If you do try side fan out I would definitely recommend using foam between the rad and the panel to stop recirculation or you might end up hot boxing the side chamber.

Also keep in mind the bottom cutouts are more restrictive than the side or the top so that may change things from my test. Oh and the stock filters are crap.

I didn't understand the foam thingy, perhaps cause I didn't try to place anything yet. I still waiting for one more package :/. Did you mean foam in the back panel like creating another chamber just for the rad?

Yeah, as soon as I saw the filters I thought straight "that's a filter for insects, not for dust", lol.

Basically yes, you'd want to make a duct of sorts to ensure the side exhaust air would be going straight through the grate instead of lingering.

Yep, got it! Gonna think about a good way to do it. Perhaps just trimmed part of the foam the comes secured in. Cheers.

I have 2700x and 2080ti, i'm cooling the CPU with an AIO and from different configurations what works for me was this:

Top 3 Noctua NFF12 + rad as intake (CPU at 40-45c under load, no OC).
Bottom 3 Noctua NFF12 as intake for the GPU (2080ti Gaming OC, stock cooler) temp are bad 75-80 under load, i'm currently looking at an AIO for the GPU.
and 3 Corsair 120 that came with the H150i pro as exhaust on the side.

The noctua fans are all on fixed speed of about 20% in the bios for silence and the exhaust corsair fans can ramp up as the GPU temp i rising but not too high.

not the same case but i thought it might help you see the GPU temps.
