Of course, Lian Li is present at Computex to present its new products. On the program are a number of cases, including the O11 Vision, the O11D Evo/XL and even fans… But not just any fans, as they include an LCD display!
The new O11 cases from Lian Li!
Among the brand’s new cases, we start with the O11 Vision a model whose aim is to offer a beautiful panorama of its configuration. To achieve this, the company exploits three tempered glass panels: on the side, front and top.
Broadly speaking, this model features an adjustable rear panel for mounting a 240 mm watercooling radiator. For the rest, a 360 mm radiator can be mounted on the side of the motherboard in E-ATX format. Last but not least, there are no real limitations for components.
Alongside these, we have the O11D Evo/XL series, more classic models with an aluminum/steel top. The XL version features improved component support and an adjustable motherboard tray. In all cases, these are cases that will allow the installation of large configurations, with 360 mm radiator support, GPU support of at least 453 mm and CPU cooler support of 167 mm in height. Last but not least, RGB lighting in the form of piping is present at the top and bottom!
Of course, the XL version will be the most expensive, priced at ~$235 in black and ~$245 in white. The more compact version will be priced at ~$170 in black and ~$180 in white.
SUP 01: an original layout!
The SUP 01 features a truly original case design, with the graphics card installed at the front of the case via a long riser. Next, we find a compartmentalized design for the watercooling radiators, which are installed behind the motherboard tray. All in all, this reduces the width of the case to just 212 mm. On the other hand, if you opt for air cooling, the impact will be negative, with 83.2 mm width for the heatsink.
Nevertheless, the idea is original and worth considering… Especially at ~$145.
Galahad II: AIOs with screens… Again!
Displays on AIOs are like RGB: a fashion statement, and we can’t help but notice that we’re right in the middle of it. Lian Li has announced several versions of its Galahad II kits. These include the Trinity, Trinity SL-INF, Trinity Performance and LCD models. The difference lies in the pump cover and the fans used. For example, the Performance model is equipped with fans capable of reaching 3000 rpm, while the LCD version reaches 2450 rpm.
In addition, the base is made of Asetek Gen8, the LCD version can read MP4 files, and the radiator is available in 240 mm, 280 mm and 360 mm sizes. Finally, prices range from ~$120 to ~$230, depending on version and size.
Fans with LCD screens… Now we’re talking!
In the “wtf” series, we pick the Uni Fan TL LCD fans. What’s special about these fans is that they incorporate a small LCD display, which can be used to display animated or still images, as well as system information. The fan supports the brand’s L-Connect 3 software and operates from 420 rpm to 2100 rpm. The price really stings, with a bill announced at $129.99. And to see it in action :
