Can't decide on a case

13 hours ago, XR6 said:

I've decided on 2 cases I like (Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic and Fractal Design Meshify C).

I can't decide which out of those two cases I prefer so I'm turning to LTT for help.

If you want to Air cool your CPU, go for the Meshify C. Both have great cooling but the PC-O11D only has a 155mm cpu tower height limit, so it cant hold larger air coolers that might be necessary for higher end systems. 

 

If you're watercooling (AIO) either works fine, I might lean slightly towards the PC-O11

*Edit* Keep in mind if you're using an AIO in the Meshify C, your max GPU length is limited to 287 mm (off the top of my head) due to the case being so short and the rad adding 27mm of space bwtween the GPU and the edge of the case

 

If you're custom liquid cooling, It's hard to find a case that beats the PC-O11D in flexibility and build quality at this price.

Hi everyone,

I'm going to be building a new system soon so I've got to pick a case.

I've decided on 2 cases I like (Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic and Fractal Design Meshify C).

I can't decide which out of those two cases I prefer so I'm turning to LTT for help.

Which one would you pick and why?

Thanks in advance :)

Personally I really like the Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic. The tempered glass just looks so nice, and the fans on the side look beautiful.

Looks are subjective, and according to this gamers nexus video the 011 dynamic does perform better temperature wise ( at least for both stock versions ).

All the prices I see have the pc-o11 have a higher price, so its up to you if the better looks and temps are worth the money.

Looks like I'll be going for the Meshify C then. The air cooler I plan to use is 163mm tall, so it looks like the PC-O11D won't be a viable option.
