For those not familiar with LanCool, it is the name Lian Li uses to market their more budget-oriented products. When we think of Lian Li we picture shiny, stylish, expensive aluminum towers. LanCool cases on the otherhand feature a plastic and steel build like the bulk of affordable ATX towers available for DIYers. That being said, many of the features that make Lian Li cases popular are carried over in some shape or form so while LanCool enclosures might not look as cool, they might offer good value for those with tight budgets.


The box.

It doesn't look like much, but the PC-K59 is one of LanCool's more expensive models (street price ~US$100). This black case is made of steel wrapped in plastic molding with contours that turn the top/front corner into a rounded bulge rather than the sharp straight corners of standard beige box. We believe this was done to make it resemble a knight's helmet as the K59 is part of what LanCool calls the "First Knight" series. They probably were aiming to make it appear noble-looking, but it ends up with a mild resemblance to the alien from "Alien." The plastic portions are rather thick, making it standout, but not in a good way.


The case.

The K59 is aimed squarely at the enthusiast/gamer crowd, those that build high-end, power hungry systems that require as much airflow as possible. It has a lot of cooling options with 14 cm fan placements at the front, top and side. User-friendliness is also a theme as it boasts tool-less assembly for most of the components and measuring about 21" tall and 21" deep, there should be plenty of room inside with which to work.


Accessories.

The case ships with screws, rubber grommets for the hard drives and two extra fans, a few zip-ties, a PC speaker, a 3-pin to 4-pin molex adapter for one additional case fan, and a tool-less locking mechanism for the power supply.
