Wanting complete water cooling system recommendations for Lian Li 011 Dynamic XL

I'm putting together and water cooling system and already have the Lian Li 011 Dynamic XL and matching 011 Dynamic/Dynamic XL D-RGB+DDC 3.1 distribution plate. Now all that's needed is the radiators selection, RGB controller for the case and distribution plate since Rog Maximus-V Gene Formula Extreme doesn't have an RGB controller. I'm a Hardware Labs fan and currently own two SR-1 560 radiators (8 Gentle Typhoons 1600 rpm) was eyeballing the 360 SR-2 and GTS 360 for my new build, but would need to run a pull only on the SR-2.

The Lian Li 011 Dynamic XL has 85mm clearance on the bottom and 74mm on the top, I'm looking for silence 1000-1300 rpm fans (considering the Gentle Typhoons are to audible at 4-5 feet) and want capacity and cooling performance at the low-mid speed fans for future expansion.


Also anyone here think I should replace the DDC 3.1 with a higher power model?


Your recommendation and expertise is welcome.

arctic P12 fans are cheap, quiet and work very very well. I would check your actual clearance for the length and width of the HWL rads in that case more than the thickness.

A few weeks ago I built my equipment in that case. I replaced the distro plate pump, a DDC 3.1 for a 3.20 DDC, and kept the original as a spare, just in case it breaks down. I attach a photo and a pdf with the components used in the liquid in case they help you.

You just saved me from a major headache, thank you! I canceled my order for the Hardware labs radiators which will not fit! I never thought the Hardware labs radiators were that much different in size, I never owned any other brand and figured they were all the same.

I appreciate the link to your build/components, thank you.

Actually I was mistaken, they will fit. The Hardware Labs radiators are 14mm off the threads mounts from the fans mounts or 105mm from thread to thread and a total of 133mm wide, so I measured 14mm off each hole and actually have room to spare. Being able to use the SR-2 will spare me a lot of restriction to compensate for the restrictive GTS 360. I really wanted a second SR-2 on top, but that was never in the cards.

At least now we know for certain the Lian Li Dynamic XL can fit 120mm Hardware Labs radiators.
