Pros: Probably the best air cooling pc case on planet earth. You can really move a lot of air in this thing its remarkable.
Pretty good options and features.
included fans are beafy and suprisingly nice (i replaced them with 10 noctua fans though)
very good performance cooling a ftw3 ultra rtx 3090 and a 12900k watercooled. (my gpu waterblock is the biggest one in the world at 13.5 inches in length and 7.2 inches in height for scale)
case is very light with all the panels off (good when your chucking a buncha water cooling stuff inside)
1000% better than the o11 dynamic I had my stuff in in terms of cooling potential.
front io is perfect for me.
price is laughably low for what you get. wouldn't be surprised if this thing went up to 200 bucks soon.
Cons: There is no way you are getting a 420mm radiator at the top. It is kinda a meme tbh. It will be very very difficult to fit larger radiators in this thing (all of my radiators are 44mm ekwb and i had a rough time installing just two at 360mm and 240mm). not as much space as you would think inside the case. 280mm and 420mm rads at the top will be an issue for you. adding 3 total radiators will be a nightmare for sure.
materials are very flimsy in some areas to cut on costs.
gotta yank the front panel off.
some screws are cheaply made.
the case can get extremely noisy... make sure you change your fan profiles accordingly, you don't need a lot of airflow in this case to make things work.
Overall Review: It is a great case and I am glad I got it. It will not win best water cooling case out there, but if you have a pc and it is air cooled use the included fans and you should have an amazing time. no extra fans needed for regular builds. so pay the price and put all your stuff in it. amazing price for what you get.
Pros: Airflow is the best ever. No other case can beat it
Overall Review: Switch from O11D and the temps have a 8 degree difference and beautiful. Definitely gonna keep this case for a long time
Pros: - Amazing airflow, on par with the Fractal Torrent
- Tons of 140mm support
- Great aesthetics
- Excellent value
- Top fill port, for those doing custom waterloops
- Also plenty of space at the bottom for a pump/res combo
- Will support pretty much any size motherboard (my 280mm EATX Z690 Classified fit like a glove, you could fit something slightly longer, if you're ok with it hanging over the edge and or removing the grommet bar)
- Tons of cable management
- Tons of extra screw, and that screw case was a nice touch
- Overall tons of customization (I was able to move the front IO to bottom, and swap the logo)
Cons: - Dual 140mm bottoms fans are possible, but you'll only be able to screw in 2 of the fan holes
- 420mm rad support listed in the manual is a bit misleading...
Overall Review: Few things to note for when you're building with this:
- The back is tempered glass, so I advise removing it before laying it sideways (pretty easy, just slide it upwards)
- 420mm rad support is listed as possible in the manual for the top...
They're technically not wrong, however I barely got my 420mm Arctic AIO on the top. Doing so required moving the front IO to the bottom, removing all front fans, and removing the rear fan. You won't be able to fit a rear fan doing this, so I advise using bottom fans. I was able to reattach front fans afterwards. I had to slide in the rad from the front and screw it onto the top mount. I wasn't able to line up all screws to mount the AIO, so this was kind of a hacky solution. I would not call this native 420mm rad support at all.
If you do this, you won't be able to access your CPU 8pins or any fan headers at the top of your MOBO. Taller RAM modules might interfere with this, but Corsair Vengeance DDR5 sticks was able to fit.
- Regarding the dual 140mm bottom fans... (I had no problem fitting them, but you'll only be able to screw in two of the fan holes)
Pros: - Excellent airflow. I moved a PC with a 3080 Ti from a P400A with 2x 140mm fans in the front and 1x 120mm in the rear to this. The temperature and noise reduction has been dramatic just using the stock fan layout.
- Highly flexible design. You can do almost anything in this case, and the mechanical features make it easy to adapt the case to your needs.
- Roomy with plenty of space to work in.
- I love the panel latch system that makes it easy to get in and out.
Cons: - The 3.5" drive installation is not toolless. My old cheap phanteks case had toolless sleds, but this requires you to unscrew the sled from the case, screw the drive into the sled, and then screw the sled back into the case. It's more hassle than it needs to be in a case that otherwise has great mechanical design.
- The top fan rail is too obstructive. In chasing ever-greater versatility, they forgot to let air pass through the thing. I put a spare NF-A14 up there, and between the dense rail system and the mesh they put on top of it, barely any air is exhausted even at 100% fan speed. You need high-pressure fans to make those fan mounts useful, even in a simple air-cooled setup.
- It's just too heavy. This is easily the heaviest computer I have ever owned, and moving it around is kind of a hassle. Thankfully, I don't intend to ever move it now that it's built. If you want a computer you can easily move around, choose a lighter case.
- Only officially supports 120mm fans mounted to the PSU shroud despite there being enough room for 140mm fans. (now I'm just nitpicking)
Overall Review: Overall, the thermal performance and easy build process make this a 5/5, despite the drawbacks. I've never had a quieter and cooler-running computer.
Pros: The customer service was good. Sending me out a replacement as soon as I send this one back
Cons: Frame damage
Overall Review: Like the case just came messed up dont think it was neweggs fault cause the box it came in is not damaged at all
Pros: All the features and support is really good coming from a Lancool 2 much bigger and roomier for hardware, cable management is better as well.
Cons: Overall I feel like this case is cheaper in a sense than my original Lancool 2. I saw GamersNexus video about quality control for it and ironically I got mine and the left side glass will not open all the way when you pull on the lever, I literally have to get my finger nails in it to open it and same for the bottom panel under it except it wont close all the way on one side. The guide pins or nubs hit the frame and you can see where someone has actually been trying to make it fit over and over again and rubbed the paint off. It also looks like someone maybe hit the case to push some of it in to place. The new metal cable covers on the back side are held on by guide pins similar to both tempered glass and the brackets holding those pins are super flimsy and will likely become a issue for many others in the future. I would have added another magnet at the bottom of them as well. Also I do have a white sticker on the bottom of my case with some number/code. I honestly questioned if this was a display unit for what.
Overall Review: Its a solid case and I do enjoy it its just a shame to spent $200 especially from Lian Li and it not be pretty dang near perfect out of the box. I bought the aRGB model and thankfully theres about 3 individual 3 pin aRGB cables to hook up whatever you please, I plan to use the Lancool 2 RGB strips and see what I can do with them.
Cons: It's heavy, even without any parts. I had to build it on the desk I was using because it was too heavy for me to lift
Overall Review: I love this case. It's by far one of the nicest looking white cases on the market. The fans in it are good although I might change the front RGB fans to some different ones for different lighting effects
Pros: Ample room for components
Ease of build
Cons: Glass rear panel could be a negative for some
Overall Review: This case was a breeze to build in. There is plenty of room for even very large GPUs or custom water loops
With is fully populated with fans it is quite and the airflow is just great.
