Lancool's Dragonlord series will become available in late July
Lancool is a subsidiary of Lian Li that is specialized in low-cost cases - without any cuts in quality of course. The Dragonlord series is now added to the product array.
At the Cebit the Dragonlord series was announced for the first time. The cases K58 and K62 will become available in Europe at the end of July. Usually Lian Li cases are made of aluminum - except some brackets. But since some models with an aluminum frame are not as buckling resistant as steel cases, the subsidiary Lancool was founded. Here the target is to use a stable steel chassis and still use the high visual quality of aluminum covers.
For now there will be only the models of the Dragonlord series and not three as announced previously. The PC-K58 weights 10.2 kilograms and comes with two fans. In the front one 120 millimeter fan is running at 1,000 rpm and in the rear there is a 140 millimeter fan running at 1,500 rpm. Two additional 140 millimeter fans in the lid are optional - the OF-01 is required for this.
The PC-62 tops the Dragonlord series off and its interior is colored in black. To grant an insight into the case Lancool equips the case with a window in the side panel. Three blue 140 millimeter fans in the lid and the front are running at 1,000 rpm. In the rear there is an additional 120 mm fan. Any other features match those of the K58: Five 5.25 inch and four 3.5 inch drive bays. Up to eight plug-in cards can be installed - most PC cases offer only 7 slots. The I/O panel offers 2x 2.0 USB and microphone and headphone jacks. The PC-K62 weights 10.44 kilograms.
According to Lancool the cases have a tool free mounting system and even the Power Supply unit can be installed with a gummed bracket.
