Lian-Li LanCool PC-K56W-B Case

Computer cases with enough features and cooling to please any gamer are rapidly dropping in price. Manufacturers are noticing the demand for affordable gaming rigs and reacting accordingly. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests the LanCool PC-K56W-B Mid-Tower Computer Case. It is part of the recent LanCool Dragon Lord series that helps bring economic relief to gamers searching for the best case for the best price. LanCool is the gaming division of Lian Li, a very well known name in the computer case industry. Benchmark Reviews is here to pit the PC-K56W-B against other recent additions to the "performance-case-at-a-low-price" arena. Recently, we brought you articles about NZXT's line of such cases. Will LanCool be able to keep up with features such as their tool-free design? Follow along as we find out.

LanCool recently released their Dragon Lord series of cases which tout a remarkably tool-less design. Four case styles were introduced, three of which come with an optional windowed version. The case Benchmark Reviews is bringing to you today is the PC-K56W, a black, mid-tower case with a windowed side panel. The cases are designed for easy fiddling as well as excellent cooling for enthusiast users. At the same time, the Dragon Lord series strives to keep a low price point to enable any computer fan to start off their new build the right way.


With so many new entries in the inexpensive computer chassis environment, its hard to decide which one is right for you. At Benchmark Reviews, we always strive to bring you the cold, hard facts about the products we test and review. This will enable each user, regardless of their skill level or the depth of their pockets to make an informed decision about the components they will use.
