CES 2020: Lian Li Unveils The O11D Mini: A Versatile 38 Liter ATX Chassisby Gavin Bonshor on January 10, 2020 2:00 PM EST
During CES 2020, renowned chassis manufacturer Lian Li unveiled its latest chassis, the O11D Mini. Remodelling the popular O11 Dynamic into a more compact shell, Lian Li has made the new O11D Mini very space-efficient for an ATX case, with a total volume of just 38 liters.
The Lian Li O11D Mini can fit ATX, Micro ATX, and Mini-ITX motherboards, and offers plenty of support for water-cooled systems. Depending on the form factor of the motherboard installed, the O11D Mini can house up to three 280 mm radiators with a mini-ITX motherboard installed, a 280 mm and 240 mm radiator with a micro-ATX motherboard, and two 240 mm radiators with an ATX sized board. Bundled with the O11D is three motherboard trays, one for each of the supported form factors.
Devised from the same DNA as the Lian Li O11 Dynamic, which also allows users to order customized water-cooled mid-plates for better cooling support with style, the O11D Mini retains a similar design, but with a much smaller desktop footprint. At the rear is four PCI blanking plates with an all-black aluminum design, while the internal structure is made of steel. The case also includes a tempered glass side panel, as well as a glass front panel.
While there is no other information available at present on exact dimensions or the maximum supported graphics card length, the Lian Li O11D Mini is on display at CES 2020. Lian has said the price is expected to be below $100 and will hit retail shelves in May of this year.

GoodRevrnd - Friday, January 10, 2020 - linkThis is relevant to my interests. But am I blind, where is the PSU?
Retycint - Saturday, January 11, 2020 - linkIt's on the right side of the case, hidden behind the motherboard mounting plate.
flyingpants265 - Monday, January 13, 2020 - linkNot bad, but I find it a bit confusing that we're still desperately holding onto the ATX standard after all this time. There are so many more interesting case design ideas rather than just simply adding 7 fans to a design from 20+ years ago.
xRuBiCoNx - Friday, January 10, 2020 - linkSFX PSU is in back chamber

Doesn't ATX require space for 7 PCI slots?
MenhirMike - Friday, January 10, 2020 - linkYeah, that thing looks very small. I do wonder if they only "expose" 4 slots but have the vertical height for the full ATX - definitely something I'd check out in person before considering a purchase. (Not that I'm in the market for a new Tower, and especially none with tempered glass)
MrTeal - Friday, January 10, 2020 - linkFrom the pictures of the inside and the back, it's hard to see how they manage to get a full ATX board in there. It will be interesting to see what it looks like when/if someone does.
MrTeal - Friday, January 10, 2020 - linkThere's actually a video out by der8auer that shows it.
The back plate is movable and slides up, and then another backplate is added at the bottom to give you the bottom 3 PCI slots.
nfriedly - Monday, January 13, 2020 - linkThank you!
wilsonkf - Saturday, January 11, 2020 - linkYou will use another motherboard tray, which should have 7 slots.
The tray is integrated with the whole backplate, I suppose. Check a 20 years old case PC-60 and you can figure out.
