I just got this case today.
I'm running Ryzen 3600x cooled with a Noctua NH-U12A like yours.
Also running a Gigabyte 1080ti but instead of the original fans I have 2 x Noctua A12x15 mounted with stripes.

And finally I have a Noctua F12 in the front drawing air in (no fan in the back since the cooler is close enough (check out hardwarecanucks review).

The temps are very good.. 55-60 on the GPU and 50-55 on the CPU during gaming where the game requires about 90-100% gpu and about 40% cpu.

I've had a Ncase M1 and now more recently Dan A4-SFX, but this case is the case I like the most, of all cases I've ever had. Really happy with it!

I have ran my TU150 now for 4 months with little to no thermal issues. Its my primary system for both productivity, re-coding and some gaming. Awesome portable case that gives me some luxury of mobility when ever I need to use it away from home.

I built a Ryzen 9 3900X system in the Lian Li TU150 as well, but I didn't have it long enough for proper testing: It was given away for a charity event.

Hey! I've just finished my TY150 Setup, and did some AIR Cooling Test!

Soon I will post Pictures and comments. Here the setup:

LianLi TU150X, the version with the full aluminum panels and the opening to help exhausting from the GPU
Asus Corsshair Impact DTX
AMD Ryzen 3950X Stock, Offset VCORE - 0.100
Corsair 2x32Gb 3600MHz C18 at 18-20-20-40-64
Nvidia Titan RTX
Corsair SF750 with Stock cables
Intel 905p 480Gb
Samsung 970 Pro 1Tb
Samsung 860 Pro 2Tb
INTAKE Noctua A12x25 with LNA with stock dust filter
Bottom 240mm dust filter.

I've tested the Noctua U12A and the D15S with 1 and 2 fans, with the general flow of FRONT INTAKE, REAR EXHAUST.

BIOS Fan Settings: STANDARD

Here the results after running 3 times CB R20 and the Benchmark Demo Scene with Blender 2.81a.

NOCTUA D15S 1 FAN (Stock A15)


NOCTUA D15S 2FANS (Stock A15 + A12x25 with LNA)


NOCTUA U12A (Standard mount, with the RAM completely cleared - The left fan stay just above the VRM and Chipset Fan)


NOCTUA U12A (180 Degree - Same Fans Direction, with the chipset and VRM fans cleared now)


I stay with the U12A 180 degrees!!

Hi! Awesome testing! Newbie here.
so are you sticking with the u12a cooler now? I’m stuck between these 2 coolers and don’t know which way to go. Thanks to this I saw that u12a is better. I wonder why and how. A lot of people is saying d15 is better.
Btw, I’ve seen some setup with d15 with 2 fans + another 1 in the rear exhaust. Any idea how is this possible?
thanks!!

Hi all,
Nice built Fabio!.
I was thinking to assemble a similar system with an 240 mm AIO, a Ryzen 9 3950x and the asus rog crosshair VIII impact MB on a NCase M1.
Unfortunately, Ncase M1 is not easily accesible in my country.
Then, the built on the Lian Li TU150 with air coolers a seems pretty nice alternative too. Just two questions:

What do you mean with a Noctua NH-U12A 180 degrees configuration? Could you post some photo ;-)? This cooler is symmetric, isn´t?
Did you have any problem with the length of the stock cables of the SF750 PSU to plug them on the mini-ITX Asus rog Crosshar VIII impact mobo?

I was also considering to use an NH-U14S cooler for RAM cleareance but...Fabio made me doubt if it would be better the NH-U12A :-)
Thanks folks!!!!!

Hi again,
I almost forgot it... what are the GPU thermals (Titan RTX) on this case with a tempered glass window? Have you tested it?
Thanks!!!
