Lancool, maker of mid to high-end computer chassis for over twenty years, has launched three, new, mid-tower PC cases: the PC-K57, the PC-K59, and the PC-K63. Utilizing their affiliation with high-end chassis manufacturer Lian-Li, Lancool has designed all three of these PC cases with anti-vibration, tool-less installations of components, all-black SECC steel exteriors, and superior thermal performance capabilities, while providing exceptional aesthetic appeal.



PC-K63
The extremely sexy PC-K63's blacked-out interior is visible through a transparent side-panel window. Blue LEDs illuminate the PC-K63's two 140mm front panel fans as well as the 120mm rear panel fan. Two, top panel 140mm fans improve airflow inside the PC-K63 as well.

PC-K59 & PC-K63
Users can mount ATX, Micro-ATX, and Mini-ITX motherboards in Lancool's new PC-K59 and PC-K63. Six 3.5” and four 2.5” HDDs (internal) can be mounted without tools, as well as graphics cards up to 285mm long. Both chassis also accept three 5.25” ODDs (external), mounted on the front panel with no tools needed. Air-filters in front of two 140mm front panel fans ensure users' equipment is protected from heat and dust. Both chassis also include one 120mm exhaust fan located at the top of the rear panel.

PC-K57
Tool-less installation of three 5.25” ODDs (external), three 3.5” HDDs (internal), and two 2.5” HDDs (internal), as well as PCI slots allowing VGA cards up to 415mm long make this an excellent PC case for gamers and enthusiasts alike. ATX, Micro-ATX, and Mini-ITX motherboards are all compatible in the PC-K57. One 140mm intake fan on the front panel (with air-filter for dust-protection) and one 120mm exhaust fan, located at the top of the rear panel, keep modified components from over-heating. For users who prefer, the PC-K57 has an additional 140mm front panel fan mount (fan excluded). With a unique front panel design, reminiscent of medieval armor, Lancool's PC-K57 looks every bit as good on the outside as it does on the inside.

Specialty Side Panel
On the side panel of the PC-K59 and PC-K57 there is venting directly over the the CPU. Behind the venting, on the inside of the chassis, is a protective cover with four pop-off sections, allowing for one or two, 140mm or 120mm, fans to be mounted. If fans are not desired, the protective pop-off panel can be kept in place to keep dust from entering the chassis.

All three chassis include eight tool-less PCI expansion slots, a cable management clasp running from the top of the case to bottom for increased organization, an air-filtered vent directly below the PSU (tool-less mount at the base of the case) to aid airflow, two rubber-lined holes on the back panel enabling LCS, one USB 3.0 port, one USB 2.0 port, and HD Audio ports. An e-SATA port is also included on the PC-K59 and PC-K63. The dimensions of the PC-K59 and the PC-K63 stand at 215mm x 530mm x 530mm (W, H, D) while the dimensions of the PC-K57 are 210mm x 472mm x 505mm (W, H, D).

The only good LanCool case I've seen is the PC-K7B, all the rest are covered in ugly cheap looking plastic...

They are degrading in quality with these lancools.... The K62 is better than the K63 for sure IMO

Yes, but I'm predicting the the NEWER Lancools are worse than the OLDER Lancools, which is degradation in the same line.

It's like if intel comes out with an i9 and lga 2011 processor tomorrow, but that the flagship cpu has the power of an i5 750

I see this too. The first lancools were of the same quality as Lian-Li cases, the only difference was they used steel in the contruction while Lian-Li uses all aluminum. The later Lancools are going down in quality with each new released.

The PC-K62 is a great case sure its a plastic front panel but you know that when you buy it; its supposed to be a cheaper version of a great lian li design. The Inside layout of the K62 is brilliant, lots of places to store the cables, plenty of room and has tool less features that WORK eg. the hdd bays and the pci locking mechanisms, not bad looking either.

These new cases look or seem to have the same general layout inside but a messed up front and top panel, the K57 wouldn't be so bad if they just made that Decepticon bit bellow the drive bays just plain perforated mesh the other cases have no hope!

There only was 2 series of case, the metal boned K7 blah blah and the ones based on the K62.

I can't say I like any of those, I get Lian Li is trying to go budget, but just because I'm paying less for the case doesn't mean it should look as though it was cheap because it's FUGLY!:wtf::shadedshu

exactly how i feel, i think cars are the same just because it was cheap why must it look cheap, you still have to shape the panels etc usually come with alloys etc.

While true, for a $100 case, I expect absolutely no plastic. And for the whole front and top to be nothing more than a cheap looking and feeling piece of plastic there is no reason they should still be asking $100 for the case. If they want to go budget and make a cheap plastic case then don't asking $100, these cases are worth $50 and no more.

Looks like an ugly knock-off of the Antec Three Hundred (which isn't particularly pretty itself).

I wasn't talking about these cases i was talking about the one i have eg. K62 as a response to lancool cases being crap. These cases in the OP are crappy looking but the design inside is awesome just look at techpowerup review of the K62. ASSUMING here they use the same design or slightly improved.

My mate got the Coolermaster CM690 II and its is not as good as the K62 granted great case for £50. The plastic isnt bad at all its sturdy and doesn't look cheap. TBH the Lian LI PC-P50 is the K62 in aluminium but its around £150 so its much more expensive. Saying in that range there are alot of nice cases like the Corsairs and the Silverstone Fortress/Raven cases but equally more expensive.

Comparably you have the aforementioned CM690II, Storm/Scout, CM HAF, Antec900, NZXT Tempest (which i previously had and still do) NZXT M59 and other NZXT, Thermaltake Armour, Fractal Design R3 (very nice!), the Xigmatek cases. Compared to them the K62 was a good offering apart from the Fractal Design which i actually like a lot (minus the lack of side window but its going for a quiet design so i understand the design).

For reference i got the case for £75 at release i reckon its went up a bit though.

Overall i can definitely see where they where going by using lower cost materials to get it sub £100 but the new cases are just terrible looking WTF where they thinking! Must've let a 4 year old loose with the Crayola.

Yeah, I think this is exactly the point. Lian Li probably hasn't been able to sell their higher end cases for the last couple years because of the "global economy" crisis.

The only good LanCool case I've seen is the PC-K7B, all the rest are covered in ugly cheap looking plastic...
Thanks, but I'm still a proud owner of a cheapie Lancool K-62 (Poor Man's Lian-Li). :D

(no offense taken)

I see this too. The first lancools were of the same quality as Lian-Li cases, the only difference was they used steel in the contruction while Lian-Li uses all aluminum. The later Lancools are going down in quality with each new released.
Is the K-62 considered to be one of the first Lancools or is it a poop box also ?

Damn this makes me want to get a different case. If I could go back in time I would have put my $ towards something more ideal for watercooling.

The K62 is awesome for the price, even if it is made of plastic, it is very well made. 3x 140mm (all LED) fans + 1x 120mm, everything is tool-less, spacious enough, interior painted black... Awesome window, just great! I got my at like 98$ CAD or something.

It also looks nice IMO

The tool-less PCI slot thingies are awesome, even the mobo mounting can be done with thumb screws.

It's Lancool, the budget Lian Li, and the majority of their stuff has plastic and a lot of it.

I think the K62 does a great job of being budget Lian-Li, and TPU's Review agrees with it ;) just because it is made of plastic doesn't mean it's garbage

and he means "It's like a Raidmax, cheap garbage". I can't speak for the K63 and it doesn't look promising, but the K62 certainly is not cheap garbage, far from it

No these are Lancool, which is a budget company that is part of Lian Li.
I don't care which manuf makes them the look like knock of of knock offs. Hence raidmax

I think the K62 does a great job of being budget Lian-Li, and TPU's Review agrees with it ;) just because it is made of plastic doesn't mean it's garbage

and he means "It's like a Raidmax, cheap garbage". I can't speak for the K63 and it doesn't look promising, but the K62 certainly is not cheap garbage, far from it
I am not saying the old ones are bad these look like the could be in the under $30 case and psu combo page on newegg.

I disagree, and I never said they were garbage, just that they looked too cheap. Personally plastic doesn't make it cheap, but it's hard to make the argument that the durability and build quality is in the same league as aluminum. They may not be garbage, but they sure look like it.

Agreed!
