Lian Li announced the brand new O11D Mini at CES 2020, a more compact version of the excellent O11 Dynamic chassis. The O11D Mini is a compact 38L ATX case, and it looks every bit as good as its bigger brother, featuring expansive tempered glass panels on both the side and front. 

There is extensive liquid cooling support as well, but the exact configuration will depend on the motherboard you've got installed. If you opt for a mini-ITX board, you'll have room for up to three 280mm radiators. On the other hand, a micro-ATX or ATX board brings that to just two 240mm radiators. There is a bit more flexibility with a micro-ATX motherboard however, and you'll have the option for a single 280mm radiator as well. 

The O11D Mini also utilises a modular design. Instead of shipping with a fixed motherboard tray that can hold all the various form factors, the case will come with three different trays, one for each of the supported motherboard sizes. 

There are some small aesthetic changes as well. The brushed metal strip down the front has been replaced by a plain black finish topped by tempered glass, the better to match the rest of the front panel. A small LCD square sits at the bottom right, and it can presumably be customised with a logo of your choice. The front I/O ports have also been moved to the bottom of the front panel, where you'll find two USB-A, one USB-C, and one 3.5mm headphone jack. 

The side panels utilise a pretty nifty attachment mechanism, similar to the one on the O11 Dynamic. There are no thumb screws to fumble with – once all the parts of the top panel have been removed or slid out of the way, you can lift the side panels up and off the case.

The O11D Mini is expected to be available in May at less than US$100.
