The Lian Li Lancool First Knight Series chassis is designed with the LAN parties in mind. The PC-K63 has an all-steel frame (except for the large plexiglass window) which provides a much tougher (albeit heavier) housing than aluminum, and allows for a more durable chassis while it is being moved around a lot. It is equipped with a powerful cooling system, sporting a pair of 140mm front intake fans, along with a single rear-mounted 120mm and two 140mm fans up top help exhaust unwanted heat.
The I/O ports on the top of the case include USB 3.0 (though only one of the two USB jacks here does – make sure to check which port you’re using to get the best performance if you’ve got USB 3.0 peripherals), allowing you make use of the fastest bus speeds from both the top and rear of the case, assuming your motherboard has USB 3.0 capabilities. There are also e-SATA and audio jacks to be had up top as well.
The large side window, along with the LED fans and all-black interior, will help make your hardware really stand out so you can show it all off during LAN parties. The front and rear fans are highlighted with blue LEDs, while the fans at the top of the case are unlighted.
The Lian Li name is synonymous with quality and greatness when it comes to their products, which are normally made from high quality aluminum. However, to branch out and give people more options at a cheaper price point, they bring in the Lancool name. The cases from Lancool are made from steel and plastic, but are supposedly still considered high quality products, so let’s see if it still holds true with the PC-K63.
