    Lancool launched the PC-K6 mid-size ATX system case. Its salient features include:
    • Aluminum shell, with steel core
    • 4x HDD bays with special HDD tool-less bracket
    • PSU mounted high (back), supports large PSU’s
    • 2x fans; 140mm intake (front-low); 120mm exhaust (back-high)
    • Removable, anti-vibration, silent front panel

    The PC- K6 midi chassis is launched under the Lancool brand. Incorporating outstanding quality and craftsmanship; the Lancool series have a steel inner-core, making them stronger than all-aluminum chassis, but also considerably cheaper.

    The strength of the Lancool series lies not only in the structure, but also in the features, which include support for 4x 3.5” internal HDD’s fitted in a patented anti-vibration, tool-less mounting, with special rubber grommets to secure the thumb screws which are mounted onto the HDD securing bracket. The HDD securing bracket snugly supports the HDD in rubber insulation, while acting as a heatsink, drawing off the heat generated by those super fast HDD’s. The HDD’s are accessed from the side.

    The front panel has special clips to secure it vibration free into place giving the chassis a finely crafted look and feel. The PSU is mounted at the back top and has a special support bracket to secure your PSU against any movement. It also supports extra big PSU’s conveniently. Transporting the case should be hassle free with everything securely in place.

    The Lancool products include an all aluminum chassis exterior, giving the case the traditional hair-line brushed finish with black anodizing, while the internals have finely honed edges to keep up high safety standards.

    The PC- K6 has been designed for the LAN power user, so they are wide and rigid, using the minimalist style where every aspect is well thought out and has a specific purpose, especially if you are a modder. The outer shell; all in aluminum, is easily cut and modified, while the internal core; made of steel is 40% stronger than an all-aluminum case. The added rigidity makes these cases ideal for carting around to LAN’s.

    The PC-K6 has a120mm extraction fan (1000RPM) at the back, and a 140mm intake fan (900RPM) on the front, with silent padding on the front panel to reduce noise levels from the internal components. The chassis has special anti-vibration clips for the side panels which are placed strategically to prevent vibration.

    Additional features of the PC-K6 include a removable motherboard tray for easy installation, vent holes on the PCI slot brackets, 7x PCI slots, 5x 5.25” bays (one is interchangeable with a 3.5” bay), special clips to secure ODD’s tool-lessly; simply insert the ODD and it clips into place directly. There is an I/O bracket with dust cover on the top panel, with 2x USB2.0 / 1x IEEE1394 / and HD+AC97 Audio capabilities. Both chassis support full ATX and micro-ATX form factor motherboards and have a secure PSU bay designed to keep the PSU rigid during transportation.

    Cable management is very easy; with special cable clips on the back of the motherboard tray to secure those in-the-way cables. The top panel can be removed or replaced and is another convenience for water cooling enthusiasts out there, who can also find a set of pre-bored holes for water pipes.

    For more details on features and extras available for the Lancool K6 please visit this page. This product ships from Taiwan towards the end of July, with an MRSP of US $ 130.

    i really like this case, im not usually a fan of alot of lian li design, but this one i like quite alot.
    it looks very similar sized to an antec sonata 3, it has the side ways hdd bays (very important, too many lately are stearing away from this) and its ATX :D
    seems very featurefull and a removable mobo tray for a mid tower is very nice. :toast:

    Hmmm, thats pretty nice, however, I want a full tower lol. I do like the 140mm intake though, it should handle itself if the HD 4870 X2 demands a lot of cool air especially if they go full tower.

    Basic design is not bad, fan design is HORRIBLE, a 140mm and a 120mm fan, both spinning at 900 rpm, whats that going to give 40cuft, with positive pressure great just what I want in my case..

    Anyways, the basic design is nice, so throw in a higher output set of fans and make sure the exhaust fan pushes more air and it would make a nice case, although I would prefer to see more fans unless liquid cooling is used.

    That's common with many Chinese/Taiwanese company sites who don't choose proper site designers. < emo> "Rock Solid, Heart Touching" anyone? < /emo>

    fail@math. you forgot the PSU fan in your equations. add a PSU with a 120mm fan, and it will even out a fair bit.

    positive pressure is better than negative pressure anyway, reduces dust by a truckload.

    Firstly how did I fail at math? Obviously you must not very very knowledgeable in simple mechanics.

    Anyways psu fans don't move a lot of air, although it will help.
    Positive pressure is simply horrible for cooling, if you are worried about dust, get some $5 filters.

    it was a joke becuase you forgot to add a fan. PSU fans dont move any air lol, the PSU fan in my PSU is the exact same fans as my case fan. try not to get generalisations in the way of fact.

    positive pressure is not horrible for cooling. dunno where you learned your facts from, but theres maybe a 1-2c difference between a balanced positive and a balanced negative, and the positives end up with a lot less dust. your comment about filters proves how little you know on that subject - negative pressure sucks the dust in everywhere through all the little cracks and gaps, how the heck are filters going to help there, lol.

    Well as a general idea most power supply fans even 120's don't move a decent amount of air.

    As for the temp differences, no its not a lot of difference, but its enough to make it less efficient, it causes air turbulence which stops air flow, and while it may not heat up one area too much it could super heat another.

    As for the dust, nothing like a little silicon sealant around the edges to stop dust from those areas, I'm a complete nut about dust, and I don't see a problem cleaning your computer out on a regular basis.....

    It's not that it doesn't work, but my god in the last slightly over a years time Lain Li's cases have gone from some of the best cooling *minus their fans don't move tons of air* to just mediocre, and its irritating to see.
