Lian Li is a Taiwan-based manufacturer of computer cases and computer accessories, which was established in 1983. The manufacturer has made a name for itself in the hardware industry, especially with its high-quality workmanship in aluminum cases. In 2016, Lian Li introduced a cube case with tempered glass for the first time. This was called Lian Li PC-O9 and could be purchased at a RRP of 449.90 €.
This case was followed by numerous changes and new developments in recent years. Probably the most famous offspring of the PC-O series is the PC-O11 Dynamic, which was introduced in 2018. This case was developed in cooperation with the professional overclocker Roman “der8bauer” Hartung and is still very popular today. The main reason is probably the high compatibility for air and water cooling components. But it also leaves quite a big footprint on the desk.
At the CES 2020, Lian Li then presented the PC-O11 Dynamic Mini. This is supposed to convince with significantly smaller dimensions but still with a high compatibility for hardware and space for different mainboard sizes. This should be made possible by a variable mainboard tray layout. How the Lian Li PC-O11D Mini performs in our test and for whom it is recommended, you can read in this review.

Scope of delivery
The Lian Li O11D Mini comes in an unobtrusively designed cardboard box. It is mainly printed in brown and partly in black. In addition to a picture of the case, numerous technical data are printed on the sides. Inside the cardboard box, the cube case is covered by normal styrofoam and a plastic foil. Considering the price range and the existence of Tempered Glass, we would have liked a slightly softer foam for protection.
The Lian Li O11D Mini comes with a wide range of accessories. It is located outside the case between the two polystyrene blocks. Packed in a brown box you will find another box with all necessary screws and cable ties, a detailed manual with pictures and numerous steel parts. These parts should later allow the variable modification of the back of the case. There are also special pump brackets for water cooling.
