Lancool First Knight PC-K63 Computer Case Review
Lian Li is a maker of super high quality aluminium PC chassis, for most these are considered too expensive for a gaming PC. Well Lian Li also make PC cases made of steel and plastic to the same high standards and also share their innovations and patents, but market them under the name Lancool. Recently Lancool launched three new cases in the First Knight series aimed at the gaming market and Benchmark Reviews has the Lancool First Knight PC-K63 computer chassis on hand for testing.
The PC-K63 is entirely tool free and has a fully painted black interior, the motherboard standoffs come pre installed and thumbscrews are used where there is no tool free mechanism. Patented tool free solutions are; tool free PSU clamp, tool free HDD/SSD rubber mounting grommets and an excellent HDD/SSD mounting cage, tool free ODD latch mechanism and finally tool free PCI backplane clamps. The Lancool First Knight PC-K63 case has a massive transparent window and very bright LED fans that light up the inside while they cool your components. In the back is a very good cable routing solution that will help advanced and novice PC builders alike to easily route cables out of sight. There are a few more innovations to talk about but we will get to those as the review progresses.
The exterior of the Lancool PC-K63 will likely get some mixed reactions, early previews can already attest to this, my favourite comment that I read said that the PC-K63 reminded them of Johnny Bravo. The PC-K63 veers away from the normal Lancool exterior design brief and tries something boldly different, this may make or break this case as aesthetics count for quite a lot with PC cases in the gaming market.
