    Computex is here and the first bit of tech we got to check out is Lian Li's upcoming case and AIO lineup! Alex took a look at what could be the future of PC cases and it looks like we're getting MORE screens and even MORE RGB. Will Alex be impressed or is the power going out a bad omen?

      I would focus more on having a type-c connection with like a 45w output.

    • Brendan Mulcahy
      Brendan Mulcahy 3 months ago

      @One Black Sun You can only just catch it for a moment but they have IO on the front of the desk. I looked on the website and it will have Type-C on the IO.

    • Leon
      Leon 3 months ago +2

      ​@Brendan Mulcahy That's PC IO though, it won't do 45w of charging. I think replacing that USB-A with a USB-C PD plug with 45W-65W of charging would make this desk also be good for charging a laptop, or really fast phone charging. It'd be fun if they integrated wireless charging in that USB cylinder thing, so that it's clear where it is.

      M3TAL CLOUD 3 months ago +2

      Wireless charging. Move the drink holder further back and to the side so I can push my keyboard far to the left. Cable management for my peripherals. Dust filter on the intake. Make the right-side bin deep enough for a controller (and maybe headset). Give yourself room at the back corners to attach aftermarket pedestals (winglets) for speakers. Play to the aftermarket/modding crowd with considerations for stream deck and DAQ placement.

  • Jake P
    Jake P 3 months ago +124

    On the 011D EVO XL, instead of having that grommet there should just be an included adapter that is basically a display extension that takes place of the grommet. That way you can just plug the cable into the back of the case instead of having to fish it through.

    • GinjaFox
      GinjaFox 3 months ago +9

      While I do like this idea and think Lian Li should think about something like this, you also have to consider how many cables of various combinations they would need to support. It might drive up the price by a significant amount or just be unfeasible.

    • siedenburg
      siedenburg 3 months ago +10

      ​@GinjaFox could be made optional as a 10-15$ add-on. So you could also choose between various dp and hdmi versions

    That AIO with the solid diffused puck and infinity mirror in the center looks sick! the fans with the screens in them are cool too, Lian li have you ever considered making a reverse style blade fan with the infinity mirror on the hub like how phanteks does with their reverse style fan blades?

    • TLR Eclipse

      which one is that one? the LCD?

  • Matasa
    Matasa 3 months ago +3

    For that DK-07F PC Desk, I feel like they really needed to add a wireless charging area for both mice and phone. They also should consider making the hub at the top a high power USB Type C port. One of the nice things about a desk setup like that is that you can easily transition to a laptop for work, and having a way to fast charge your laptop or mobile devices would be neat.

    Gorgeous cases. Top glass is a genius thing for anyone who has their desk on the floor. I still think im a sucker for the Phanteks NV7. the back door for cable management just has me smitten. Always liked their desk cases, but you're likely going to put a desk mat on it anyways, and if you don't, well you see how many prints were all over it. But Lian Li's innovations are always next level. Industry leading for sure.

    After reading or watching reviews, I was deeply impressed by Lancool III. And yes, this new Lian Li is impressive, but I'm still not going to abandon my first love, Be Quiet, especially since their highest-end lineup has frontal mesh now. It simply matches my mindset of functionality over show-off better. Sadly, they're severely underrated. This video alone surpasses the combined views of Be Quiet reviews from Computex 2023.

    Wow I'm more of a function over fashion guy for PC cases but that case looks incredible and its really hard to deny how versatile and easy to build in it is with the removeable motherboard tray. Instead of reusing my old PC case when I hop to AM5 later this year I might actually end up getting one of these...

  • stormgear
    stormgear 3 months ago

    I feel like the triple glass panel would turn the case into a greenhouse, maybe plunk a plant inside and see what happens lol. But seriously, I am late at this 'dual chamber' thing in cases and I would love a double panel version of O11 Vision, so I hope that is an option you can select before you'd buy it.

  • Scott Bitz
    Scott Bitz 3 months ago

    Those Front and Rear GPU mounts are pretty sweet and what I would love is if they put on the rear of the case "extenders" so you still have the rear plugin or even better a built in KVM Switch!

  • TwistedRail

    The cooling cup holder absolutely NEEDS to be resizable! It was be so cool!

  • Roguephantasm
    Roguephantasm 3 months ago

    The can cooler on the desk is an okay addition. Id hope it's pushed further to the back of the case so you have more clear (flat) workspace. I think a pop-up ac plug(s) would be nice too since getting behind or under the desk to do some other hobby work (like light soldering or something) would be a pain.

  • Patrick Yee
    Patrick Yee 2 months ago

    I do have one thing about the Odyssey X case (I know you didn't show it), that you cannot put a rear fan on the motherboard. In the rotated dynamic version, you only have bottom and the front for exhaust and intake. You would have make the bottom to be the exhaust, which is not good when most of your cooler air comes from. Another possible is to have all your fans being intake or vice versa to create a positive pressure.

  • E F Larsen
    E F Larsen 3 months ago

    lianli cases look amazing! maybe when I dare to do a custom loop for watercooling i'll get one, but with my current setup it's more about airflow than aesthetics.

    My recent computer I built last year is Lian Li 011 Air Mini. Easiest computer I built and i used Lian Li Fans.
    I am a big Lian Li fan now and watching this kinda makes me wish I didnt recently upgrade my computer. That stuff looks sick.

  • Nathan Fortier
    Nathan Fortier 3 months ago

    My biggest concern with the desk is that if you spilled a can of soda on the glass the likelihood of it making its way inside the case is higher than the solid top design. A tray that slides out from under a solid desk reduces chances of it getting onto the Mobo.

  • burkemd
    burkemd 3 months ago +7

    Plugging your display cables INSIDE the case sounds really clean aesthetically! I'm sure some people would love this.

    • Sulaiman Lunat
      Sulaiman Lunat 3 months ago +3

      Your cable is still coming out of the case regardless. The only thing you eliminate is the plug really which I don't see as a huge issue anyway. I'd be much more impressed if they had a full cable shroud at the rear to hide all the existing cables and allow them to drop to the bottom. My case sits sideways to the right of me so in normal orientation the cables would all be facing outwards towards me. I have an inverted case just to have the cables come out the other side instead, but I'd love to have a nice cable shroud and use normal orientation.

    The SUP also has one more advantage, most of the airflow doesnt pass from the motherboard, which most likely means reduced dust (albeit at increased VRM thermals which shouldn't matter anw).

    I hope for those of us that already have the o11 series case that they'll start selling those bezeless tempered glass panels. I already have an o11 mini but I think it would look a lot better if it didn't have the bezels around the tempered glass like these new cases do

    • jfolz
      jfolz 3 months ago +2

      Look at the Jonsbo VR4. It's all mesh all around, so thermals are amazing, and the whole inside of the case slides out the back. You're left with just a skeleton of a case with no panels in the way. I got one a few weeks ago and it was a breeze to build in.

    • Flying Tentacle
      Flying Tentacle 3 months ago

      You can literally do this without any special case though. It's not like you can route power before hand with that case, so it's really no different than building on the mb box like everyone has been doing since 1483.

  • Obsessive

    The Liquid cooled GPU in place of the AIO cooler is actually pretty looking and the brain can paint even more of a picture when looking at it

  • Dil
    Dil 3 months ago

    I'm the proud owner of a Lancool II mesh and it's an excellent case, even if it weighs as much as a boat anchor when fully loaded with hardware. Lian Li has been around for as long as I've been building PCs, but they really hit their stride around 2018.
    I used to think case innovation died after that advent of rear cable management, but the mechanical design of recent cases is really well thought out. Anyone building a system now is spoiled for choice in the case market now that we've moved away from all glass boxes with no thought given to airflow.

      Nah more like phantek and hyte improved on the design, h9 doesn't look remotely close to Lian Li design. But yeah since competitor came for their 011 case, Lian Li had to show their answer

    That case with removable motherboard tray was a good idea. I hope somebody creates something similar without all the RGB and glass panels. I like black sleeper mesh cases but it seems to be hard to find such cases anywhere.

      Totally agree, the tray is really great, however, all these glasses... They look very nice but seems to me you''ll end breaking any of them sooner or later... I don't see me having a case with so much glass.

    These cases should come with plugins already wired from the GPU to the back of the case to make plugging then in easy, just like they do with USB, and sound plugins.

    Love the innovative thinking behind these odd GPU mounting locstions. The real question is do they negativity affect thermos.

    IRC Lian-Li had removable motherboardtrays in the early 2000's, it was their USP in combination with the all-alu construction.

    The desk needs more places to mount monitor arms. Working from home, I have 2 27" portraits either side, and a (I think) 55" in the middle. Being able to mount those and have the legs be able to support it would be good.
    I am actually interested in buying it, the old desks were appealing but never fully suited my requirements.

    Bought a Lian Li O11 Dynamic EVO a year ago, they are great cases. That being said I had a design issue in mine, if you'd put the power supply on the bottom slot you would have problems installing the GPU (The anchor feet would come in contact with the PS thus not allowing proper connection for the GPU not being fully slotted in). Had a 10 degrees difference on my GPU compared to my old case where it was fully in. Drove me crazy for a few days trying to figure it out 😂.
    I don't know if others had the same issue but just in case you have 2 options, put the power supply in the upper slot or slightly unscrew the MB pins of the case (to give more space).

    Looks like the "Next Big Thing" will be a set of DP/HDMI extension cables attached to a PCIe backplate for all those vertical GPU cases.

      @Karpata honestly at a slightly offset price it would probably be nice for lian Li to include such an extension of the perfect length for displayport

    such a bummer that my PC died on me unexpectedly and I was forced to buy a new one now rather than later cause I'm getting the O11D Evo case but would've absolutely loved to have the new version where the glass meets at the side instead of having the metal bar :(

    I like that front mounted GPU. It’s always been a shame hiding the most expensive component so deep within the case, and giving it the worse airflow, when there is so much underutilized vertical space in the area that used to be populated with 5.25” and 3.5” drive bays. It’s always seemed like every case until just recently had been an older design that was retooled and repurposed into a more modern design, but when you pop the front panel off there’s a couple of slots from non-existent bays and non-existent sleds. Lian-Li had shit figured out and I feel like my next build might be a rebuild of my existing PC in a fancier case using one of those new layouts, case fans and AIOs.
    Those LCD fans are just insane, and it makes me have to think hard about which case layout to get, but if you get those they have to be the three in front, so then you’ve gotta get the vertical GPU mount that mounts next to the motherboard on the side. I don’t really mind because if I wanted to, I can get cables with male and female ends and leave them dangling out the back so I can access them like normal-or just get extra long cables so I don’t care, and bundle and extra one or two in case I need to add an additional monitor for anything. The one cool thing is that having your display cables connect inside the case is that you can easily use one of those extra outputs for a totally ridiculous LCD display somewhere inside the case if you want. Who needs RGB when you can have a whole LCD panel mounted somewhere inside your case?

    I guess I’m just getting old. But I’ve had an 011 dynamic for about 4 years and I’ve been strongly considering going small form factor with no RGB. I just want my desk space back lol. These cases look sweet though

    You know what I want to see? A PBFF case with a vesa mount arm coming up off of the back. Then you get rid of GPU sag and the case can act as a monitor stand too.

    Motherboard manufacturer: We should put the PCIe slot for GPU as close as possible to the CPU to minimize latency.

    They should give a display extender of sort, so you can choose to not fish in your hdmi or dp wire, just like in the recent desk pc

    Have you guys ever thought about getting rotating stands to build computers on in the studio?
    I have a 360 degree rotating TV stand that I set up on my build table for hardware projects. I can toss my O11 Evo on there and spin it around with ease to pass cables through the case without having to lift or rotate it.

    Routing the display cables is easy once you go with extensions. I have the O11D Evo with the upright GPU (perpendicular to the motherboard) AND I inverted it, which is a feature with this case, so the DP and HDMI cables route from the front/bottom to the rear/bottom. Using an extension, I have a female DP and HDMI ports poking just outside the back of the case.
