    Update in the new Lian-Li PC-011 Dynamic.

    1. I feel a bit silly spending more on fans than the case.
    2. It's difficult to cable manage 8 fans.
    3. I have a vertical GPU mount to put in at some point but couldn't be assed for now.

    This is stunning, really!
    The fans are odd to me, where is the PSU? Ok i get the bottom fans you going for a bottom to top airflow but the 3 fans inside would just be blowing at the side of the case? Not sure maybe i am missing something. But it looks absolutely amazing!

    PSU might be behind like it is on the Lian Li cases.

    Edit, derp it is a Lian Li lol.

    The case is a dual chamber design, so the PSU is behind the motherboard.

    I have the 3x120mm bottom fans and 3x120mm side fans intake into the case, with the 2x1400mm top fans exhaust through the AIO.

    You don't need that many fans, but i think it suits the case to have all the fan spots populated (should have gone a 360 in the top really), and it lets me run them at 600 - 700RPM for completely silent running while still maintaing good airflow and temps.

    Will probably put in the vertical GPU mount this weekend, as the graphics card is creating a bit of an air blockage in the bottom of the case.

    Sits vertically behind the motherboard towards the rear. You can fit two psu's in this case. It's a lovely case and I do like the idea of having the psu not visible at all and no bottom case shroud. Also like the completely clear front face.

    That all makes perfect sense then, i was thinking there was barely and space behind mobo mounts, i see. Very nice.
    Do it and put up pics please, i just ordered a Phanteks case with vertical GPU addon and am keen to see this style.

    It really is a beautiful case.

    Had some time today so put in the vertical GPU bracket which required remounting the AIO block to clear the tubing. Hard to take a photo of a reflective tinted glass box!

    Looks like with bigger gpu's you have no choice but to mount them vertically if you are running water cooling.

    Just having a bit of a look at a review.

    It's dependent on the waterblock. If you're running a wider than FE card then the waterblock needs to have the inlet/outlet coming straight out of the block, instead of from an additional distribution block on the edge of the waterblock (which most of them have).

    But honestly, if you're watercooling anyway, you may as well stick with FE and not pay extra for a better air cooler.

    Ok migrated to new Case and finally got GPU mount, damn i love MSI's lighting on this card i didn't even know it had! Hopefully my cable management has improved over the abomination i had before!
    I CBF moving the tower out from under the dark desk and unplugging anything to do so, SO... Very poor quality phone camera pictures...
