Detailed Exterior Features
Now let's look a little close at the detailed external features of the PC-K63 case and get a better idea of what's good and what's not.
The front panel is integrated into the shroud and from right to left we have: Power button, reset button, headphone and microphone ports, one USB 2.0 port, one USB 3.0 port and finally an e-SATA port.
Removing the front face is very easy, all you need to do is give a gentle tug at the bottom and away it comes. Once removed you have access to the front 140mm fans and filters, and also the 5.25" drive bay covers.
The fan filters are easy to remove by unclipping them on the left hand side. Specs on the fans are as follows: Lian Li LI121425QE-B4-A DC 12v 0.14a blue LED fans, 140mm, 1000rpm, 51CFM airflow @ ~25dBa. They are very very similar in specs and looks as (and quite possibly are) Yate Loon D14SL-124B fans.
The top of the Lancool PC-K63 is a s easy to remove as the front, the front must be removed first and then the top will pull off with a little tug. The fans used here are Lian Li LI121425BE-4-A DC 12v 0.14a fans, 140mm, 1000rpm, 38 CFM airflow @ ~25dBa.
All of the fans on the PC-K63 case are mounted with Lancool's patented rubber anti vibration mounting system. This allows for really quick and easy removal or fitting of your fans simply by applying a little pressure and sliding them to the right to remove, or to the left to install in the specially cut mounting holes. Shown here for demonstration is one of the top 140mm fans which are mounted on the outside of the case, they could also quite possibly mount on the inside making room for a watercooling radiator on top.
Another quick look at the bottom again with the PSU dust filter removed showing the gill style of vents for the PSU intake airflow.
