Lian Li LANCOOL III
To deliver great out-of-the-box performance, the Lian Li LANCOOL III is air-flow optimized with a 51% porosity front mesh panel, fine mesh panels at the top and both sides of the PSU shroud, and four pre-installed 140 mm PWM fans.
The LANCOOL III provides a wide range of cooling compatibility options, allowing users to install up to a 360 mm radiator at the front on the multi-position bracket, above the PSU shroud (80 mm thick max), and up to a 420 mm radiator at the top (75 mm thick max) in an offset position with enough clearance for 60 mm tall memory sticks. With support for up to E-ATX motherboards, 420 mm long graphics cards, and ATX PSUs, the LANCOOL III also offers multiple storage solutions for mounting up to 12 x 2.5″ SSDs or 4 x 3.5″ HDDs and 8 x 2.5″ SSDs.
Functional New Look
The LANCOOL III sports a futuristic look with its two brushed aluminium strips located at the front. Each strip doubles as a door handle for the right and left side tempered glass panels. With a modern I/O located at the top of the front panel (Power button, Reset button, two USB 3.0, USB Type C, Audio), users have the option to relocate it to the bottom for easier access when the case is placed on a desk.
For the Lian Li LANCOOL III RGB, the I/O panel is equipped with additional RGB control buttons to provide lighting customization to the 3 x 140 mm ARGB pre-installed fans at the front.
Advanced Cable Management
The second chamber of the LANCOOL III provides comprehensive cable management to ensure the case is looking its best. Behind two removable cover panels mounted on hinges and magnetically closed, 8x Velcro straps are built into the case. Three large Velcros with multiple channels to organize and separate the front panel cables, motherboard 24-pin and GPU power cables, and fan hubs. Around the motherboard area, 5x smaller Velcro straps are installed for routing cables such as the CPU EPS cable and storage drives. In addition, there is enough room for the mounting of up to four fan/ARGB hubs.
Vertical GPU Additional Accessory
Vertical GPU mounting is also possible in the Lian Li LANCOOL III by using the O11D EVO vertical GPU kit. Users have the option of a black or white kit that’s equipped with a PCIe 3.0 or 4.0 riser cable. The vertical GPU kit can be installed in the LANCOOL III at different heights with a lower position leaving 6 mm of clearance between the kit and the top of the PSU shroud, and a higher position leaving 46 mm of clearance for fans and a radiator above the PSU shroud.
