Description

I wanted to build a mini itx system. That case really looks awesome. However temperatures just horrible. Especially when I start use 1080ti, pc started to crashing because of high temperatures. Now i move my pc parts to an atx case that phanteks entho evovl. It works geat. I wouldn't recommend that pc case to anyone.

Just have to be aware of your components when picking a case.

yeah this family of Lian-Li cases honestly should probably only be used with custom loops. It's hard to achieve good airflow for fan-based builds in these.

Or just a more moderate build in general, but true.

Edit: Ask questions to the right people. XD

what did I wrong?

As far as the components you chose, nothing. The problem is you had a case that allowed very little airflow. In order to properly cool a graphics card like the 1080Ti, you either need adequate airflow or a completely water-cooled system.

If you would have bought a blower style 1080 ti, this case would have been perfect.

So I've seen a number of YouTubers do reviews on this case (Kye/Bitwit and Paul from Paul's Hardware) and I don't for the life of me understand why every build (including yours) has all four fans exhausting. Would it not make a lot more sense, and drastically reduce temperatures, to have the rear fans as intake? Did you try this configuration? Seems like relying on negative pressure alone to bring cool air into the case is going severely impact your temperatures, as you seem to have discovered.

Did you mount fans on the bottom, under the graphics card?

i tried this case too. i wanted to like it. but 1080ti vid card didn't fit so i had to go down to a 1070, had to completely disassemble the case to get my 280mm rad in and build a custom mount, and the fan support was bad so i had to drill out holes to remount them underneath. then even after all that it still overheated. i ended up switching to the Phanteks evolve shift (tho it has its problems too).

You can still build your system in a mini itx case; you just have to find a case with good airflow to the card, if you plan on running a air-cooled 1080 ti. From the looks of it, the case is made for a low-power gpu, or a liquid cooled one with the radiator mounted to the back of the case. As it is right now, it doesn't look like your GPU gets much circulation, so I have to assume that's the part that was having cooling issues.

I currently have this case and actually love it. I set the 2 rear fans as intake and the top 240 rad as exhaust. I plan on doing a full loop in it in the future with custom bottom extension to make room for a bottom (under case) mounted 280 radiator and a 240 on the top.

do you think the temperatures will stay the same if you add the 120mm fans at the bottom of the case?

Honestly, I would get better temperature results with two fans on the bottom side but not a great performance. This case making noise with poor performance. Also, I wasn't able to add two fans to the bottom there was no space between the case and graphic card. Probably 15mm tiny fans would fit there.

i think some builds featured additional case feet in order for it to fit regular 120mm fans on the bottom of the case. I personally improved 5-7 degrees c when I had 2 120mm noctua fans underneath.

I picked one up yesterday on eBay for the hefty price of $220. But considering my other options were $370-400 shipped from the UK, I think I did okay. I wish I had purchased this case when it was going for $140 on Newegg.

I wish i purchased it at $140 too, sadly anything over $150 new is just to high for me so maybe one day.
