Lian Li O11 Dynamic XL, I9-10900k and RTX 3080

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Budget (including currency): about 3k USD

Country: Norway

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: NA

 

Setup:

1x Lian Li O11 Dynamic XL (White)   

1x ASUS ROG STRIX 1000, 1000W PSU

1x ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XII HERO (WiFi)

1x ASUS GeForce RTX 3080 TUF OC GAMING

1x Intel Core i9-10900K

1x Corsair Force Series MP510 960GB M.2 SSD

1x Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR 3200MHz 32GB

1x Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML360R RGB

1x Cooler Master MasterFan SF360R ARGB

 

This is the first full build (no upgrade) I have done in years. Finally moving beyond the old CM 690 II and Corsair 750W psu that has held for 3 more or less full rounds of upgrading.

My intension with the Lian Li and PSU is to have some parts that will hold for 3-4 builds down the line without need for changing it out. Also as an engineer I really love the Lian Li case design and solutions.

 

The only thing I have not done yet: I am wondering about getting another CM SF360R ARGB and an CM SF120R ARGB to fully stock the case. Just for looks.

 

Will post some photos later as i am still waiting for parts due to 3080 shortage.

Yea actually, I am wondering about the connections of all the ARGB fans, in regards to the RGB.

 

The Masterliquid ML360R comes with a controller for its three fans, how do I connect everything correctly to work with the ASUS ARGB software?

I am having a hard time finding out if the fans include splitters so that I can connect everything. The Lian Li case at least looks to have a splitter so that ARGB can be forwarded to the next thing in line, in addition to the case ARGB LED strip.

All I can tell you is that RGB can be a nightmare.

 

Many companies design proprietary solutions that do not play nicely with other products. In most cases it is possible to adapt, split, and daisy chain everything together. You'll have to find the right cables to do so.

 

I don't have any experience with CoolerMaster specifically, so I don't know exactly how they do it. WIth my Phanteks case, Halos, and RGB strips I could daisy chain them and then adapt their proprietary connectors to the standard 3-pin to connect them to my motherboard, or adapt them and then daisy chain them to other adapted RGB products before connecting to my motherboard.

I finally got all the parts today, so going to start building tomorrow. As I feared I didnt get all the cables needed to connect all the ARGB togheter.  

But as to connection and ARGB, both the Cooler Master and the lianli supports Asus ARGB so I hope it proves true and is trouble free.

Going to build everything and then have a look at what I need. Also considering cable mods even though I think its a little to expensive considering what one gets. Cables are a pretty cheap thing to manufacture and 50-100bucks for a 2dollar manufacture cost cable is just plain greedy.

I think you are mostly paying for the labor, since those cables are mostly done by hand AFAIK. There are vendors other than cablemod like asiahorse.

Probably a good plan. You can search specifically for the adapters you need once you know.

Well I didnt notice it the first time over but there actually was a 5way splitter cable in addition to the cm Adressable RGB LED controller. I am trying to find out what the power limit is on the device though, so that I dont fry it. Can't find any documentation that gives a number on max power (Amps). This is with the AIO.

 

Total ARGB connections will be ten I believe.

(Controller outputs 4x and 1x 5way splitter, gives 8 outputs on the controller. In adition there are 2x ARGB outputs on the MB totalling 9x ARGB outputs. Possibly another on the Lian Li case for throughput so 10 potential sockets realisticly.)

 

Count:

1x Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML360R RGB  (1x ARGB on pump, 3x ARGB on fans)

2x Cooler Master MasterFan SF360R ARGB (2x ARGB @ 1,2A each) (Order 1x extra)

1x Cooler Master MasterFan SF120R ARGB (1x ARGB) (1x new for rear exhaust)

1x Lian Li O11 Dynamic XL LED strip. (1x ARGB)

 

It is kinda important to figure out if the CM adressable RGB controller can take it though.

Yeah, I've also had a hard time finding this kind of information in the past. I think my longest ARGB chain has about 126 individual LEDs on it. 2X 30 LED strips, 2X 15 Integrated Case LED strips, 1X 30 Integrated Case LED Strip 1X 6 LED flow meter.

 

I have another that has 90 LEDs, 3X 30 Fan Halo LEDs.

Well build is finally finished, I decided to just forget about the load on the RGB controller since it has its own power input. Make or break! Well it went fine, probably will with added fans as well.

 

Here is a link to my instagram and the Pictures of it: Instagram

I will post some more pictures later on.

 

I do wonder if i should get that triple fan for the bottom and a rear fan as well. Will be a lot of RGB..
