Lian-Li Lancool One Digital PC Case Review
Peter Donnell / 3 months ago
The Lian-Li design department never let us down, and the Lancool One is by far one of the slickest looking cases they’ve ever produced. There’s not as much aluminium as some of their older models, there’s a lot more steel in here these days. However, that’s helped to lower the price by a rather large amount. Of course, there’s tempered glass on the left, as well as that drop-dead gorgeous brushed aluminium front panel.
The edges of the metal are smoothly cut and polished, which looks superb. The dark grey finish of the aluminium is really brought out by the shiny edges quite nicely. There’s a load of RGB hiding between this gap too, but we’ll see that in action shortly.
The right side panel is just a matte black panel. Nothing fancy, but it certainly gets the job done. You can see here, there’s loads of ventilation down the sides of the front panel, so airflow should be decent, overall.
The front I/O comes equipped with both USB 3.0 and USB Type-C connectivity. There’s a power button and the usual audio jacks. No reset button though, as that is now used to control the RGB lighting.
There’s a huge dust filter/air intake on the top, which is great for those that need extra fans. However, it’ll let heat out passively too.
It’s held in place with some incredibly strong magnets, so it’s unlike to come loose on its own.
On the underside, you’ll find mountings for 120 and 140mm spaced fans and slim radiators.
Around the Back
Everything is as you would expect around the back. I’m happy to see they kept the matte black finish on all the fittings though, it blends in very nicely from all angles.
There’s a height adjustable 120mm fan mount at the top.
Seven expansion slots, all fitted with reusable metal covers. Plus, an additional two mounted vertically if you’re using a riser cable.
It’ll support an ATX PSU too, which comes with its own slide-out dust filter for easy maintainance.
