Hi All,

I'm building a new system and already ordered an EKWB Nucleus 360 AIO for a Ryzen 9 7900X

I'm torn between 2 cases and wondering if anyone has tried the above AIO in the top of a Lian Li Lancool 216?

If it wont fit, I will go with the Lancool III

Thanks

On their website, they say the thickness has to be less than 55mm which is kind of short, but EK advertise it as a slim rad and from what I can gather, the overall thickness is 52mm.

If you move the motherboard down, it makes more room and they now have 63mm available, which should accommodate most coolers.

Thank you for the quick reply.

I was also concerned over the length as the radiator is 400mm long as the pipework is in addition to the 360mm for the fans.

Lian Li doesn't seem to give total internal dimensions for coolers - Just stating 360 rads would fit - Assuming 360mm in length



I've never had to return anything to Overclockers before; If I ordered the 216 and found it didn't fit, are they likely to accept a return to be swapped for the Lancool III ?

I’m not allowed to post a direct link but there is a site that has scraped data from all sorts of retailers, and people can post their builds on it. I don’t mean to try and bypass the forum rules, but just trying to help someone find/see direct information about a build they want to do.

I’ve found one person with the Lian Li 216 and the EKWB cooler, it’s seems to fit.

You can see the photos if you search for : “second build EParroquinV” in google. They have posted some good photos with the AIO installed with front fans, might help you decide?

I'm not sure what OCUK's policy is there, but I know that in general with retailers, you can be subject to a "restocking fee" if they can't resell the item in the same condition that it arrived. This is what OCUK's returns page says:

You are liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods. For example, if it goes beyond the sort of handling that might reasonably be allowed in a shop. We will deduct this amount from the value of the refund.

I thought I would update this thread in case anyone finds this in the future:
Yes the Nucleus AIO 360mm Dark from EK does fit the Lian Li Lancool 216.

It is a cosy fit but it fits really well - Almost like it was designed for this case
