Closer Look: PC-K63 Exterior
In this section we will have a look at the exterior styling and features of the Lancool PC-K63 PC case.
The PC-K63 ships in a lovely looking box full of color and information and all of the important features are pictured. The box held up quite well considering it travelled from Taiwan to the UK.
The front of the PC-K63 case is very different to anything Lancool have done before, it is very unique and functional but not the best looking face. One major factor that spoils the front looks for me is that the 5.25" drive bays are recessed, if they were flush then I am sure that the looks would be more appealing. I also like the front of cases to be more uniform, the PC-K63 uses a mixture of styles.
When we look at the left side of the PC-K63 case we have a lovely big clear window. It is nice to see a side window without vents for once which means you can show off your hardware without obstruction. The shape of the window follows the shape of the case, this would have been better as a square.
Moving round to the back we see that the PC-K63 has a bottom mounted PSU, vented PCI backplates and rubber grommets to allow watercooling pipes or wires to pass through.
The right side of the case is very plain, this panel is interchangeable with the left side window panel and will give you the option of hiding your components away if you don't fancy showing them off.
The top of the PC-K63 case is possibly the nicest part, the lines look sleek and the vents look like a sharks gills. Speaking of the vents there is plenty of room for air to move through these which is very important when you want to get that hot air out.
At the bottom of the PC-K63 case we see four rubber feet, not overly big but suitable for the task all the same. We also see that the vent for the PSU has a removable dust filter. Like many of their other high-end cases, the Lancool PC-K63 includes holes at the bottom of the case for cabling accessories from Lian Li.
