Can I Top Mount A Radiator On The Lian Li Lancool One White?

ArcticEngineer

Hey guys! I have a lot of post on this forum about cases and I was wondering about the Lian Li Lancool One White. Lian Li claims on their site that they can fit 120mm, 240mm, and 360mm radiators on the top. But when I look at the case, the top clearance looks so small and doesn't look like it could fit a radiator and fans. I believe I have a ML240L, with the radiator being 27mm thick and the fans 25mm thick.

The case has offset mounting to accommodate the rad so it doesn't interfere with the motherboard but check and see if you have very tall VRM heatsinks or RAM for the required clearances.

I believe I have a B350-F Strix and Geil Luce Super RGB Ram. I believe the Ram is about the size of Trident Z RGB and the mobo's VRM heatsink are kind of high

If you have the case and hadware on hand and you know the thickness of the rad and fans you can simply take two fans stacked together and placed in the correct mounting spot to get a physical measurement of the clearances and space you have in the case.

 

Looking at these photos with 120mm fans you should have lots of room.

I currently don't have the case as I'm changing cases, I'm only considering this case. Although I do have all my hardware, including AIO, Motherboard, and Ram.

I found this picture off the internet which leads me to believe that I'm ok, unless there are any red flags with this photo

You should be totally okay. the only issue you might have is if it was the 280mm version, as the radiator gets closer to the ram (most cases recommend only about 35mm ram in that instance)

I have a 240mm AIO so I should be fine, thanks for the help!
