About this deal

The Lian Li O11 Air Mini we are reviewing today, however, is quite different from the original O11 Dynamic Mini, with many improvements internally while retaining the iconic size, shape, and general internal layout. The O11 Dynamic series from LIAN LI is developed in collaboration with DER8AUER, a world-renowned German overclocking, water cooling, and gaming evangelist. Pretty much the only remaining issue is that the O11 Air Mini is a peculiar shape that might cause you problems when you look for space on your desk. Clearance for High-Performance CPU Cooler and ATX PSU Although O11 Air Mini is a compact case, it provides up to 167mm height CPU clearance, allowing users to mount their performance CPU cooler in the system. This is because the rear compartment now has room for ATX PSUs, which is a huge upgrade over the SFF-L only layout in the glass-based O11 Mini, and well worth the extra width.

Two 140mm PWM fans come installed at the front intake, while the rear exhaust carries a single 120mm PWM spinner. The 30mm space behind the side fan / radiator bracket allows users to mount fans, thus efficiently intake fresh air to directly cool the radiator and leaves enough space to install long GPUs in this compact case.Being all about the air, O11 AIR MINI has a spacious interior to accommodate multiple confirgurations of fan and radiator setups to maximize the airflow. If you want to get your PC set up quickly the case comes preinstalled with 3 black PWM fans or you can create a wonderful light show if RGB fans are used.

It’s smaller in size than the existing O11 Air while still providing excellent hardware support and airflow. I've switched the supplied 2 x 140mm fans to bottom (intake), and added 2 x 140mm Noctua's to the front (intake) , and 3 x 120mm (exhaust) to the top and rear, as well as a NH-U12A CPU Cooler.radiators will fit at the top just fine, though, unless you have tall RAM that creates clarence issues. Designed with optimized mesh pattern on the front, top and side panels, the O11 AIR MINI provides exceptional focused airflow and overall system airflow for both air cooling setups and AIO setups.

This is because the radiator mount isn’t placed all the way near the side panel, and the motherboard tray is pushed slightly inward from the original case.

Mm Tempered Glass FAN: (Top) 120mm X3 / 140mm X2(Option) (Side) 120mm X2(Option) (Bottom) 120mm X2/ 140mm X2(Option) (Front) 120mm X2/ 140mm X2(Option) (Rear)120 mm X1 RADIATOR: (Top) 240mm or 280mm Radiator (Side) 240mm Radiator (Bottom) 240mm or 280mm Radiator (Front) 240mm or 280mm Radiator GPU LENGTH: 362 mm CPU CLEARANCE DRIVES: 167 mm DRIVES: (Rear)2 X 2. In the great scheme of things that is a minor issue and it demonstrates just how well this case works both in concept and also in practice. Fans can be mounted with 3 x 120mm in the roof plus 2 x 120mm in the side, bottom and front with space for 1 x 120mm in the rear.Originally wanted different case (Fractal Design North Charcoal Black) but went for Lian Li o11 and it was a great option to choose. Finally, the attractive aluminium finish and tempered glass side panel make this case a great foundation for creating a powerful yet compact PC with a clean and stylish aesthetic. A sophisticated profile is crafted through the steel mesh panel at the front, a change from the lively look of the Lian Li O11D Dynamic Mini’s glass side and front panel. Each cable can be passed through the perfectly placed rubber grommets and neatly managed in the spacious second chamber. This system allows us to produce a substantial amount of heat and effectively test the Lian Li O11 Air Mini‘s cooling capabilities.

That said, wider 280mm radiators wouldn’t fit in 7-slot mode, as it would interfere with DRAM and motherboard components.

Alternatively, when using larger fans there is space for 2 x 140mm installed in the top, bottom and front. Finally, there are excellent mounting options for installing a plethora of RGB fans if you’d prefer to create an incredible light show.
