Andy Ruffell / 8 years ago
[COLOR=#000000]Lian Li remained fairly quiet over the Christmas holidays, but have since piped up to inform us that they are still very much in the business by announcing their Lancool product range; the First Knight series cases.
Three models have been released in the First Knight range; the first being the PC- K57 giving users mass amounts of internal and external drive bays, large cooling properties and unique design. Next is the PC-K59 which will cater for the most popular form factor, 285mm graphics card support and lots of drive bays and Lastly is the PC-K63 which gives a stylish look, side window and blue LED illumination.
All three cases support ATX, Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX motherboards, are USB 3.0 ready and have fan sizes including 120mm and 140mm for the best ventilation and cooling properties.
The full press release can be seen below:
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.
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.
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).
