This review is from: LIAN LI Lancool PC-K62 Black 0.8 mm SECC, Plastic + Mesh ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros:

It's a sexy, generally well-built case. Excellent cooling. The blue LED fans give the interior a cool, subdued look. The fans are more or less silent, even when maxed out. The case is spacious enough to hold a large graphics card, in my case a Sapphire Radeon 6950. The tool-less mounting system worked on my beast of a graphics card. It grabbed the card tightly and held it securely in place. The system was less impressive on the hard drive and DVD drive bays (see below.) I have had the system built, and running for two days now. It remains to be seen what the long-term prognosis holds.

Cons:

A few niggles. The CPU clearance cutout on the motherboard tray is way off-center, at least for my ASRock P67 motherboard. Consequently, mounting or dismounting a CUP cooler requires removing the motherboard from the case. Also the clearance between the motherboard and the tray is so small that any air cooler with a big backplate will push up against the motherboard tray. I barely managed to squeak by with my CPNS10X Performa, with just enough clearance to slide a business card through. Both of these issues could have been avoided with a properly sized and centered cutout. Cable management is not that well thought out. Half the time, I found myself looking for a cutout that simply wasn't there. The space between the motherboard tray and the side cover is pretty thin, making routing all but the thinnest cables impossible. The tool-less mounting system didn't secure the HDD and the DVD drive well. I ended up using screws for peace of mind. And, now for the big one...

Other Thoughts:

The front HD audio jacks don't work. When you've paid over $100 for a case, you should expect such niceties as working audio jacks on the front panel. Hell, you'd expect that on a $50 case, and most of the time actually get it. After reading all the complaints about Lancool’s non-existent Customer Service, I didn’t even bother contacting them. Instead, I sent an e-mail to its parent company, Lian-Li. I’ll give them a week, then I’ll call Newegg for a replacement, the disappointment of tearing down a new-built system, and starting all over again, notwithstanding. If this issue cannot be resolved, it will be the last time I buy a Lancool product. There are plenty of fish in the pond.
