Lian Li PC-O7S Review
Lian Li claim there's 400x132x60mm of room up in the roof for radiators. Now you might think this is plenty, but once you've factored in the 25mm thick fans it drops to a slim 35mm. The figures only tell half the story though, as in reality getting a rad up there is going to be tough. In the pictures below we've shown the roof shroud with our 360mm rad and fans attached. As it's much thicker than the 35mm we have left it won't even re assemble with the fans in place.
What we've done then is to remove the fans in order to visually illustrate what we're talking about. As you can see, there's very little room, and with the rad off-set behind a shelf the door is firmly shut on any assembly over 60mm
The main problem though is that even if you can get a rad up here, there's absolutely no room what-so-ever to turn the tubing around. Just look at how close the end tank ports are to the PSU. Now imagine that they had barbs on. 90 degree ones might just make it, but it's still be awfully tight. Lain Li have cut into the shelf in an effort to make things easier, or rather physically possible, because without these cut out's they'd be no way at all a rad was going into the roof. All said, we think the water cooling options on this case are very poor indeed.
