Greetings builder community this is my most expensive build I’ve attempted since the hobby started in 2001 . I call this build the "Black is White Air Overkill" I fell in love the the main focal point in the 2018 CES the Lian-Li Dynamic for its visual potential in showing off whatever i choose to stuff into this gorgeous case design. As with many of my builds in the past I see a case and I'll build around it to suit the needs of that unique case as a problem was with my aged Thermaltake HTPC IPOD case and the limited tight space. The Lian-Li Dynamic was not without its own set of problems as well that did not present themselves until the build actually got started. Specifically fans/filters,case size, and front panel I/O. I had planned to build with a custom loop for the first time but choose at the last minute to go with an air cool design after watching a video on JayzTwoCents since the cooler was wicked and offered much the same in cooling/price in retrospect to a closed loop. Lian-Li Dynamic DW was the purchase really designed for a water cool solution I choose to accept this as a challenge to a air only build. Many of the reviewers have spoke poorly of Lian's provided air filters due to there lower air flow compared to what Silverstone offers**. So I got to thinking about mod around the problem without changing the filter which led to an expensive nine Varder EVO RGB static pressure fans that offered that highest air flow i could find to pull air through Lian's filters. This also provides me with a future upgrade to a closed loop as these are the fans that will be used. The air cooler NH-D15 SE-AM4 D-Type also proved to be a major issue due to the limited 155mm limit before hitting the main window glass of the case. I swapped the Noctua 2 radiators fans for there twin black and white Chromax to stay with the black and white theme. The new height was pushed to 163 mm slightly higher than I planned due to the memory issue im explain later. I knew this was going to be an issue so I fabricated a 1/2" polycarbonate spacer to extend the height and add some RGB flair. The spacer took a few attempts to master. One side of the space has phillips head screws that match the eyelets where the glass slides into. The glass to poly mounting was allot trickier though, the first attempt was a fail the polycarbonate heat tolerance would melt trying to router out eyelets. Second attempt I simply bored out holes in the final resting space of the glass and used superglued rare earth magnets into the poly spacer so the glass rivets could bond to the spacer. The bottom slotted feet for the glass also proved to be a problem i just sacrificed 2 old NIC card rails and mounted to the bottom. I also affixed some RGB strip lighting face down onto the inside spacer to give some light to the extension. Asus Prime x 470-Pro mated with a Ryzen 2700x,NH-D15 SE-AM4 D-Type,Chromax Radiator Covers, 16gb Corsair LPX 3466 (needed due to air cooler), (2) BPX PRO NVMe 480GB (o/s) 960GB (raw video), (2) PNY 1080 8GB Founders in SLI Mode, and a Corsair RM850x White. These make up the primary guts of this rig. The Motherboard and Proc were on sale for a one day walk-in at the Atlanta Micro Center , the NVMe decision was based on a remark from a PC Perspective podcast in which Allyn Malventano was in the process of reviewing the BPX Pro from MyDigitalSSD based out of New York. Price was a huge factor with similar to better performance compared to the Samsung EVO this was a no brainer to give this a try. My GTX 1080s were a gift from last year are they were pulled from a company test device and could not be resold I was not gonna complain free is cool . Lian-Li front panel I/o usb3.1 ports don't work and there is no reset button and the power button will not allow power button hold for shut down. (waiting on a replacement). I wanted a black and white PSU all I could find with the power requirements was the Corsair unit. I liked the unique sleeved wires but the black combs were a pain to work with . As seen in the photos there as straight as there gonna get i spent literally hours trying to get picture perfect. The air cooler was a problem too even though the design allows more clearance for the ram the 140mm fans still get in the way. Pulling air through this cooler generates are audible noise push is the only way to go but my case and memory to glass clearance added more frustration. The only case area without a air filter is on the back upper side and i really wanted the air flow to take advantage of the fresh intake air from the back right side air intakes. Fans are st as 3 bottom intake ,back right side 3 fan intake, and 3 upper fans sucking out air. So had to place the 140mm radiator fans blowing from right to left the only place I could fit the fans within the glass to motherboard spacing even with my modded case spacer. I purchased 2 Silverstone air filters and put then onto the outside back upper side to filter air pulled into Noctua unit.
