Respect. I was so disappointed with Define 7. XL variant is good for monster PCs but O11 Dynamic XL just beats them straight in every category. Congrats.

Prepping for hardline, open never used bargain for £15.

Lian-Li can't really be beaten in this segment of the market @Bartacus, The Dynamic/Air series are in a league of their own

Nice !

You can turn that water mark off BTW. My phone did that when I got it.

They truly are. It is the benchmark, this O11, particularly the XL. I've never seen a better use of interior space in a case. Liked the case so much I own two now, LOL! But I tried to give Fractal another chance, lesson learned, never again. Until those guys learn how to make a case without a billion compromises, I'll not touch a Fractal case again.

CaseLabs was and still is the benchmark for any case manufacturer. Khm...(that doesn't mean copy/paste Thermaltake). O11 offers a similar approach but more mainstream-friendly. They still have a lot that needs to be changed. Airflow for example is very restricted in O11. Those fan cutouts are just too small. Also air filters are garbage. Complete waste of material.

Edit: Even though O11 is far from a good case the rest of the market is just complete horse manure so O11 is only the best of the bad bunch.

Lovely looking card & 500 times better than EK's packaging.
Easy to install using provided instructions.



Ran F1 2019 benchmark for 45 minutes ith fans on 40% and seeing max hotspot temps at 66, powerlimit set to 50%, Mem @1200, power draw is between 250w & 350w.

Very nice! I managed to get mine to pull over 380W from the wall at one point at 2089mhz, but that was with very old drivers.

Thats a lot watts, what drivers are you running today ?
Any idea what clocks & volts I should be aiming for 24/7 ?

I honestly don't know, since it's in my 3rd rig that I don't 'daily drive', and I only really OCed the snot out of it just to see how hard I could push it. I'm running whatever the latest drivers are now. Clocks are weird with that thing. I've had to force the fan speed to 100% to get the clocks up, but they don't get anywhere near what they did under old drivers and older versions of Windows 10. So I settled for setting a 'cap' of what looks to be 2100mhz (hard to tell from the stupid graph in the Radeon drivers), but it never gets anywhere near that. I still see that hotspot temp go over 100C pretty quick though, even though the GPU core temp is in the low 40's.

I might pick up that Phanteks block, just because I hate EK, LOL! I'm going to move the rig into a PC-O11 Dynamic XL soon, and see what more rads gets me, if anything.
