LIAN LI Lancool PC-K7B Black Aluminum/ SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Update to review below 01/01/2013

This review is from: LIAN LI Lancool PC-K7B Black Aluminum/ SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Still a great case

Cons: Needed to modify a few things (I used a Dremel to cut out my own backplate access cutout in the motherboard tray, as well as a few more holes for routing additional header cables from behind the motherboard tray)
Definately shipped with ground loop-causing front panel

Other Thoughts: The designers of this case did the same thing Antec has done in a lot of their cases and connected the usb casing to the audio casing/ground. This causes an audible ground loop through the front audio connector. Buying PW-IN11AV65T0 (or possibly IN20AV65T0) as a new USB 3.0 front panel works to solve this, as it doesn't have those ports connected internally anymore. The kit came with all the ports, the cutout thing, and the only thing I had to recycle was the metal door flap needed transferred from the old to the new.

To install you'll need to unscrew the top of the Lian Li case to remove the front panel and will need a good pair of wire cutters to remove a bar on the reset button's metal support bracket of the case (old front panel had wires all at one point and new one has wires spread out, requiring a wider opening in that bracket). Did the replacement project today and now I have no more audio background noise and I have front panel USB 3.0 (not that I've got anything that actually needs that speed).

4 out of 5 eggs Really nice case - front panel audio issues 12/27/2012

This review is from: LIAN LI Lancool PC-K7B Black Aluminum/ SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Well constructed, lightweight, near lian li quality at prices lower than typical lian li

Cons: Sharp internal edges, front panel has odd fiber optic "fingers" for activity lights (that can break off easily)

Other Thoughts: I've enjoyed my case for a while, but one thing that kept bothering me was the front panel audio noise. The HD Audio header works, but the front panel (mine had firewire, 2 USB 2.0s, headphone, mic) would give lots of CPU-activity activated background noise in the audio/headphone jack when the USB headers were plugged in. Some google research indicates that's a problem found when the audio ground is tied into the USB ground in some way (typically done via wires bridging the ports or via a board) and you get a ground loop.

Lian Li's website indicates that I can "upgrade" my front panel to USB 3.0 with PW-IN11AV65T0 or PW-IN20AV65T0 and I plan on doing so and double-checking for any ground connections between the USB and audio connectors before installing.

Rosewill RTCA-Q6470A Black Toner Replaces HP 501A Q6470A
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Hit or miss 09/20/2012

This review is from: Rosewill RTCA-Q6470A Black Toner Replaces HP 501A Q6470A

Pros: Cheaper than HP cartridges, still black, usually work

Cons: I bought a full set of black and color Rosewill toner carts for my cp3505 and had about a 50% success rate on working vs being overfilled and dropping toner constantly. My users can't accept that so I ended up having to throw away the cartridges I couldn't shake and distribute toner internally to avoid this.
