    Lian Li O11 Dynamic or the Dynamic XL - thinking about getting one

    Oh I'm irritated at it for sure - I have the XL and the TR is in there, and it's ... not easy to manage airflow in it. Radiators work well, anything else - meh. That's why I have the running debate on prosiphon, or just mesh front, or jump all the way to full water.

    Lian Li O11 Dynamic or the Dynamic XL - thinking about getting one

    Yeah. I have to disable much of the auto-overclock on my Threadripper for the summer. It's just too hot - and I'm getting a mesh front for it. I'll consider water next year. For a WC case (or one heavily built around AIOs and lower fans), the O11 ROCKS. Debauer built it for that. It's...

    I'll second that hte O11 series does NOT have great airflow. It's not an airflow case. It's adequate, but middle of the road at BEST, and really really wants a lot of fans and top-bottom flow. I'm seriously debating water cooling my Threadripper for this reason - my 10700K on water works...

    Eh... I run idle at 65c on a lightly overclocked 3960x. That would help.

    GPU Shortage Got You Down? GeForce GT 730 Makes a Comeback

    That's the DDR4 version. It's slower than the 7XX :p By a good bit. NO one buys those.

    GPU Shortage Got You Down? GeForce GT 730 Makes a Comeback

    That production process uses (I ~think~) slightly different substrate. That hits my knowledge limit - but they're still making tons of 28nm, not having the same issues as 7/8nm are.

    The slope takes that away. Look at the rear shot - you lose a lot to that back area. That’s good for cable management. But the main area is only about as big as a normal case. Or a big case (for the xl), not super big like it looks loke

    Lian Li O11 Dynamic or the Dynamic XL - thinking about getting one

    Haven't ever had one of those - going off of the 3090 of theirs I do have (with the optimus block in pic), I'd say that the 3080 would be VERY tight in the non-XL, 3090 is a non-starter. In the XL... 3090 would be tight, the 3080 would fit fine. The thing to note - the back panel space is...

    Good compact 2.0 setup (PC, music/some movies, occasional gaming)

    I'm basing it off of comparisons to my home theater setup (Bowers And Wilkins 700s or 800s, can't remember which), and a few high-end headphones (Grado SR325, Arctic Steel Series + DAC), and my own preferences (obviously). I'm an audiophile on a budget (the home theater setup was 18k in...

    For the moment. I was planning on putting that card in an X299 box that lives in a 1000D, but... RMAs have me shuffling video cards around like I'm playing musical chairs.

    Pic of XL back exhaust. AIO is dual 120, as is the remaining top fan as comparison.

    Lian Li O11 Dynamic or the Dynamic XL - thinking about getting one

    No. EVERYTHING has a filter. Now, my filters get dusty, but no. I do have the side of my Dynamic cracked open (3090 + block doesn't quite fit :p), but even then it's not bad.

    Just not enough room really for that - it's a single 120MM fan (or maybe a 140MM? I haven't measured) for the XL. My 2x120 won't fit. I'll take a pic.

    Let me know if there are specific things you want photos of. The XL is torn apart for testing.
