22 July 2008, Keelung, Taiwan - Today the PC-K12 midi chassis is launched under the Lancool brand. This is a Midi-Tower case with 9x 5.25" bays giving you plenty of options and tonnes of room. The strength of the Lancool series lies not only in the structure, but also in the features, which include support for the modular patented anti-vibration HDD cage, supporting 3x HDD's. Each HDD is mounted with a special thumbscrew and rubber grommet to ensure that HDD's are secure and vibration free. The modular cage can be secured as you see fit within the roomy interior of the case. It has a120mm fan mounted into the bracket, making sure that the HDD's are cooled and that air flow is optimal according to your needs. Incorporating outstanding quality and craftsmanship; the Lancool series have a steel inner-core, making them stronger than all-aluminum chassis, but also considerably cheaper.

The front door has a lock and extra sound padding to prevent noise from being an issue. It can be arranged to open either from the left or the right according to your needs. The side panel has special clips to secure it vibration free into place giving the chassis a finely crafted look and feel. The PC-K12 has a120mm extraction fan (1000RPM) at the back, and a 120mm intake fan (1000RPM) on the front, with silent padding on the front door to reduce noise levels from the internal components. The PSU is mounted at the back top and has a special support bracket to secure your PSU against any movement. It also supports extra big PSU's conveniently. Transporting the case should be hassle free with everything securely in place. The Lancool products include an all aluminum chassis exterior, giving the case the traditional hair-line brushed finish with black anodizing, while the internals have finely honed edges to keep up high safety standards.

The PC- K12 has been designed for the LAN power user, so they are wide and rigid, using the minimalist style where every aspect is well thought out and has a specific purpose, especially if you are a modder. The outer shell; all in aluminum, is easily cut and modified, while the internal core; made of steel is 40% stronger than an all-aluminum case. The added rigidity makes these cases ideal for carting around to LAN's.
