Lancool PC-K63 & PC-K59

Lancool are well known to be Lian Liís budget arm, taking popular designs and reducing the cost by employing a lower cost SECC steel construction. What has made them popular is their ability to retain the same built quality and lustrous design of the cases they are derivatives of. Lancool took the opportunity at CeBIT to showcase their latest First Knight Series of cases. The two cases we will look at are the PC-K63 and the lower end PC-K59. Internally both are based on the Lian Li PC-8FI design.

The PC-K63 has a very distinctive shell which deviates from the clean lines normally attributed to Lancool cases. Instead, it uses a two-piece plastic bezel that dominates its look. The obstrusive design may not prove popular but in terms of functionality and practicality, the case is very promising. The interior of the PC-K63 is coated black and a side window is also featured. There are also a total of 5 fans for more than adequate cooling.

The PC-K59(W) is identical to the PC-K63 in design. Aesthetically, it lacks the interior coated finish, the LED lights on the front 140mm fans and lacks the two top 140mm fans. The PC-K57 pictured to the right of the PC-59 is also a member of the First Knight Series but it uses a front bezel that is more akin to Darth Vaderís helmet. Internally, the only difference is the absence of the top 140mm fans and one front 140mm fan.
