Lian li pc o11 dynamic fan config

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I just ordered the case because I’m upgrading my pc and the new you won’t fit in my current case (meshify C) with the front aio and fans.

What I need to know is if anyone has this case with 3 fans at the bottom as Intake, 3 at the top as Intake with the aio at the top and 3 on the side as exhaust. This is the setup I would like to go and it kinda makes sense to me better than any other because both gpu and cpu would get fresh air and all the hot air would be exhausted on the side.

Thanks in advance

I have tried two different setups with 9 fans in my O11 Dynamic.

 

First setup:

Bottom + Top intake

Side exhaust with 360 aio

 

Current setup:

Bottom intake + Side intake with 360 aio

Top exhaust

 

My first setup worked perfectly fine but I wanted to try a different setup after I did my OC on my CPU.

The second setup gave me on average 5C better CPU temps and GPU temps were about the same. 

 

I would normally recommend top exhaust as all heat naturally rises.

Yes this. I completely agree. It's better to exhaust up top as heat escapes above as heated air is lighter and cooler air is present lower, this intake takes in cooler air

While this is true, heat does not rise with enough "force" for a lack of a better term to overcome or resist mechanical direction (in this case, a fan blowing air. There was a good article and demo showing this but I can find it now)

Totally agree but it just feels like the most natural position to have your exhaust.
