Lian Li 2021 Digital Expo, four new homes for all tastes are coming

Lian Li 2021 Digital Expo, four new homes for all tastes are coming

Lian Li 2021 Digital Expo

On the occasion of the Lian Li 2021 Digital Expo event, the well-known manufacturer presented four new cases, among which we also find an updated version of the O11 Dynamic, called O11D Evo.

O11D Evo

The O11D Evo is thought of as an airflow optimized edition of the original O11 Dynamic, bringing to the table features taken from the O11D XL, such as rear exhaust, RGB lighting and improved cooling, but with the same overall dimensions and dimensions as the O11 Dynamic. It will support motherboards up to E-ATX format, graphics cards up to 445mm in length, power supplies up to 200mm in length, and tons of storage device options. Obviously, being a case built for cooling, it certainly could not miss a large support for the insertion of fans and radiators. Aesthetically, the top and side panels are either glass or aluminum for a much more premium finish and presumably better airflow as the panels are supposed to act as air filters.


Built in collaboration with DAN cases, A4-H20 is an updated version of the DAN A4. The chassis supports 240mm radiators and 2.7 slot graphics cards up to 315mm in length - and this is definitely good news for a product of this size (10.4 liters).


If you want something a little bigger, the Q58 may be for you. With a volume of 14.3 liters, it is still a rather small case, but it can accommodate graphics cards up to 320mm long and a radiator up to 280mm can be fitted for CPU cooling. With a side air intake system, RGB lighting and a machined aluminum front panel, this product offers an excellent balance between design and performance.

V3000 +

Lian Li has also thought of those who prefer full tower cases, creating the new V3000 +. The chassis is able to accommodate two systems, two power supplies, video cards up to 420mm in length and up to 16 hard drives or 19 SSDs. Further details should be revealed in the next few hours.

Lian Li brand products are available on Amazon, even at discounted prices!

EK developed a GPU waterblock that enables you to double the graphics power of a rackmount server without taking extra space. The sandwich waterblock cools both cards at once.

EK revealed an interesting custom water block that it developed for one of its enterprise customers. 2CRSI, a French IT company, needed a solution for its 1U rack servers that would enable it to offer twice as many GPUs in its thin server enclosure.

EK's sandwich waterblock is made of solid copper and features milled cut-outs for NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 cards on both sides of the block. The cards mount in opposing directions to expose the PCIe slots on either side of the configuration. The inlet and outlet are mounted to one end of the block to allow for connection to radiator up front in the case.

EK Water Blocks is expanding its business and getting even more serious about quality control because it's moving into the automotive industry with autonomous vehicle cooling solutions.

EK is hosting a 3-day digital event called the EK Expo this week, and the company had some surprise announcements today. Most notably, one of those announcements is not like the other. EK's business is primarily in cooling computer components-namely CPUs and GPU; however, in 2021, it is getting involved in the automotive industry.

EK revealed that it is developing a liquid cooling system for a client that is developing autonomous vehicles. The company recently hired several experts with automotive cooling backgrounds to fulfil that commitment.

iBuyPower has just unveiled its new Revolt 3 MK3 chassis, which is giving me some serious Xbox Series X console vibes. Check it out in this slick new video from iBuyPower:

The new iBuyPower Revolt 3 MK3 is an 18.34-liter small form factor PC case that shrinks things down as much as possible, and even has a handle on top. There's a ton of ventilation which is great for keeping the innards of the system cool -- anything including the upcoming Core i9-11900K and Ryzen 9 5950X processors.

It'll even house a super-fast NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 or AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics card, with iBuyPower including a 700W 80 Plus Gold SFX-L PSU that will handle anything you throw at it.

Noctua is preparing to launch a passive CPU cooler in the new year. We don't know much about it yet, but @FanlessTech on Twitter released the following image and said that mass production is about to start. Noctua has not confirmed this, but the company's roadmap lines up with the claim.

The fact that Noctua is making a passive cooler isn't exactly news. The company previously showed off a prototype of its passive CPU cooler at Computex 2019. On the Computex show floor, Noctua demonstrated that its passive cooler could keep a Core i9-9900k cool under full load from Prime95.

Noctua expected to have its passive cooler on the market in the first half of 2020, but it missed that launch window, with Covid19 likely contributing to the delays. Never-the-less, it looks like Noctua is on track for an early 2021 launch. The company's roadmap shows a passive cooler on the schedule for a Q1 release.

Phanteks is entering the AIO game. The company announced its new Glacier One all-in-one liquid coolers, which are available in multiple sizes and multiple colors. It's not every day you see a white AIO cooler, but Phanteks is now offering one.

Phanteks' new Glacier One liquid coolers are available in 240mm, 280mm, and 360mm configurations. The company is not offering 120mm and 140mm variants of its AIO coolers. The new coolers include Phtanteks MP fans, which operate at 2000 to 2200 rpm and should provide near-silent airflow. Phanteks said it designed the MP fans specifically for use with radiators, and they are available separately from the Glacier One coolers.

The Phanteks Glacier One is built upon Asetek's Gen 7 AIO platform, which features a pure copper cold plate and a 3600 RPM PWM-controlled pump with ceramic bearings. Phanteks added a magnetic pump cap that includes a tempered glass 'infinity mirror' top with addressable RGB lighting effects to make it look fancy.

NZXT has issued a warning to owners of its H1 mini-tower case that they should stop using their computers and contact support. There's a flaw in the case that could cause a fire.

NZXT's H1 case got great reviews when it launched earlier this year. We gave the chassis a 96% overall rating when we looked at it in February. However, there seems to be a fatal flaw in the GPU riser card system design that could cause a severe hazard.

NZXT has identified that the screws that hold the riser PCB to the case can, in some cases, cause a short, which could cause sparks and potentially a fire. The company is taking the situation quite seriously and has paused all sales of H1 cases, including its own pre-built systems. NZXT has also communicated with its reseller network that sales of the case should be put on hold until the problem is rectified.

EKWB today revealed a fresh take on the monoblock concept. The company's new Magnitude multiblock system cools your CPU and VRM and makes contact with other heat-generating components.

The basic concept behind a monoblock is simple: use one block to cool your CPU and voltage regulation hardware (VRMs) to enable boundary-pushing overclocks. EK's new multiblock takes that idea and puts a little bit of a twist on it. Instead of a single block to contact both parts, the multiblock includes individual blocks for the CPU and VRMs that mate with special barb fittings to create an overly fancy monoblock cooler.

The EK-Quantum Momentum AORUS Z490 Xtreme is EK's first attempt at a multiblock cooler, and it addresses more than just the CPU and VRMs. The new block also makes direct contact with the power stages, chokes, and the 10G LAN controller on GIGABYTE's Z490 Extreme motherboard.

Lian Li is about to release the smaller version of its highly popular PC-011D series cases. But don't let the compact size fool you. This case won't limit your build to compact parts.

Lian Li first announced the PC-110D Mini at CES 2020, and we've been waiting all year for it. The company isn't quite ready to ship the new case, but it's prepared to take your money, so the release must be close.

Lian Li's PC-011D is one of the most popular case series on the market today for a good reason. If you want to show off your build, especially if you have a fancy custom water cooling system, there are not many other options that give you such a clear view of your hardware because of its tempered glass front and side panel that give you a full open view into the case.
