LIAN LI Introduces AIO Liquid CPU Cooler and New Cases at Computex
LIAN LI Showcases Chassis and Cooling Lineup
It seems that LIAN LI always has something a new and interesting on display at trade shows (like putting a mini-ITX system on a yacht), and this year’s Computex is no different. The renowned aluminum enclosure maker has entered the closed-loop liquid CPU cooler market, and there is no shortage of new case designs to check out here, with renders of the full lineup provided before the show.
Galahad AIO 240 Liquid CPU Cooler
LIAN LI’s first AIO cooler is of the 240mm dual-fan variety, and offers support for AMD and Intel CPUs. It features trademark brushed aluminum construction in either silver or black, and it has a ring of addressable LEDs on the CPU block (controlled via a remote), and this lighting effect can also be minimized if desired by applying an included magnetic cap over the center, as shown.
There were two Odyssey X enclosures announced, with the Dynamic and Performance models available. This Odyssey is what LIAN LI is calling a 2-in-1 morphable PC chassis designed with the help of der8auer.
The LIAN LI Odyssey X-Dynamic Case
As LIAN LI explains:
“While the Odyssey X is designed to offer everything you would expect from LIAN LI in a well-rounded DIY oriented case, it provides a unique level of customization with its ability to change between two modes, Performance vs Dynamic. While the Performance mode is designed to provide more space for thick radiators, one at the front and one on the side, it keeps a more classic style. When assembled in Dynamic mode, the all aluminum Odyssey X is more aggressive and stylish, making it a real looker.”
The LIAN LI Odyssey X-Performance Case
The latest in the LANCOOL series is designed both for ease of access and a clean build, with features like hinged glass side panels, dual PSU shroud panels, and cable covers to keep the build looking tidy from either side.
The LANCOOL II also features a quick-connect front panel with LED lighting, while the front bezel promote better airflow. There is also a detachable fan mounting bracket behind the front panel that can be adjusted horizontally for additional clearance and better fan spacing at the air intake.
O11 Dynamic XL ROG Certified Case
An upgraded version of the O11 Dynamic, the new XL offers tempered glass side and front panels and carries ASUS ROG certification (as with the small form-factor PC-Q17 WX we reviewed back in 2017), with some very understated lighting effects to accent the front bezel.
“Once again designed with the collaboration of Germany’s famous Der8auer, the O11 Dynamic XL is bigger in every way (depth, height, and width) to further increase its possibility of water-cooling capabilities by providing more space for thicker radiators as well as taller GPU water blocks.
The space behind the motherboard tray now features four hot-swappable hard drive bays as well as four additional SSD space behind the cable bar. The additional cover/SSD trays mounted on the side radiator area gives the possibility to the user to either choose to install SSDs or remove the tray to mount fans or a radiator. The modularity of these trays also allows for placement of the SSDs on the bottom of the case.”
Another interesting design is this TU150 small form-factor enclosure from the lineup that has seen two versions with the TU100 and TU200, with the trademark feature its integrated slide-out handle on the top panel.
“Notable improvements include a redesign of the iconic handle which is now retractable and can vanish seamlessly into the chassis top panel to leave room to a stylish system for all to admire. In addition, the top panel gained depth from the handle leaves enough room for proper cable management, an essential feature in mini-ITX cases.”
The TU150 will be available a choice of aluminum or tempered glass side panel, and offers plenty of room for cable routing and cooling with up to 172mm tall air coolers supported.
While the images here were renders created before the show LIAN LI had some of the enclosures on display at their Computex booth as well as a pair of new desk enclosures with the DK04-F and DK05-F, though final pricing and release dates have not been announced for these upcoming products.
