LIAN LI Launches the O11D EVO XL - The Ultimate Evolution
What I find interesting to see how popular the LIAN LI 011D has become. There have been famous computer cases before but, none of them lasted quite this long or sparked numerous minor refreshes quite like the 011D.
September 7th, 2023, Taipei, Taiwan – LIAN LI Industrial Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of chassis and PC accessories, launches the ultimate O11D chassis with the O11D EVO XL. Inspired by the popular O11D EVO, the EVO XL adds features such as: simultaneous support for 3 x 420 radiators, a height-adjustable and fully removable motherboard tray, a removable front pillar, improved support for upright GPU mounting on the side fan/radiator bracket, and redesigned cable management and storage solution. The O11D EVO XL also keeps the unique features of the O11D EVO, with the ability to reverse the case and a relocatable front I/O module. The O11D EVOL XL is available in black and white at an MSRP of $234.99 and $244.99 respectively.
- Supports 3 x 420 radiators simultaneously
- Removable motherboard tray is adjustable in 3 positions
- Removable front pillar for unrestricted view
- Reversible frame for left orientation
- Front I/O USB module relocatable to 3 different locations
- Hot-swappable HDD cages on hinges for ease of access
- Location adjustable dual-layer cable clips for flexible cable management
- Supports upright GPU installation in standard and reverse mode
?The O11D EVO XL is designed with cooling performance in mind. Starting with the motherboard tray, a modular piece that can be quickly removed for ease of installation, it can be height adjusted into 3 positions (high, middle, and low) to provide better fan/radiator clearance at the top or bottom. The top, bottom, and side brackets of the O11D EVO XL can each support 3 x 140mm fans / 420mm radiators simultaneously for extreme cooling performance. Each radiator bracket can be quickly removed for ease of installation. With the motherboard in lower mode, the rear of the case can support up to 2 x 120mm fans.
?The O11D EVO XL is the ideal showcase chassis with its removable front pillar. Without the front pillar and side bands on the front and side tempered glass panels, users benefit from an unrestricted view of the PC. The EVO XL also supports the ability to be fully reversible and features a relocatable I/O module with 3 supported locations (front, side and rear). Furthermore, with the use of additional accessories, users can change their GPU mounting location to either vertical or upright. The optional upright GPU mounting kit is redesigned to accommodate larger GPUs of up to 358mm in length and 80mm in thickness. The kit is affixed to the side fan/radiator bracket instead of the frame, allowing mounting of the GPU outside of the case, and offering the ability to locate the GPU I/O at the top or bottom depending on the user’s preference.
?Located in the second chamber, the O11D EVO XL features 2 x hot-swap storage drive cages, each supporting up to 2 x 3.5” HDDs or 2 x 2.5” SSDs. The cages are mounted on hinges which allow them to swivel away from the frame and provide easier access to the mounting trays. Each drive cage can be equipped with a 15mm thick 120mm fan to provide extra cooling to the drives. And for cable management, the cable cover bar is also on hinges for quick access and the O11D EVO XL comes equipped with 3 dual-layer cable clips that can be mounted anywhere along vertical grommets pass through. Featuring a C shape and a similar mounting mechanism as SSDs, the concave part of the clip can hold the large bulk of cables coming from the PSU and front IO, while the Velcro strap on top of the clip is ideal for fan cable management.
The O11D EVO XL is available for pre-order on September 7th, 2023, at an MSRP of $234.99 for the black, and $244.99 for the white.
