LanCool Dragon Lord PC-K62 Advanced Mid Tower Case - The LanCool Dragon Lord PC-K62 Advanced Mid Tower Case

There is a new addition to the Dragon Lord series. LanCool sends us a chassis with budget builders in mind and delivers the PC-K62 mid tower chassis.

The LanCool Dragon Lord PC-K62 Advanced Mid Tower Case

The front of the PC-K62 is well ventilated with all mesh clip in panels. This panel is all plastic and with the large edge rails, it is slightly reminiscent of the Antec 900's front, although LanCool angled the top to match the top panel better and use bold horizontal cross bars to break up the mesh.

Spinning the chassis to the left, you can see this chassis differs from the box image. My sample, the PC-K62 has a window in the side to allow almost a complete view of the internals. Speaking of the internals, we get our first peek here of the all-black painted guts. There is a small issue here. Looking closely, there is a tiny stress crack in the bottom of the window. Not sure if it's due to the screw stressing the hole, or if it was from one of the numerous whacks it took in shipping.

The rear of the LanCool chassis stays in the all-black theme. You can see the top panel stands about 1.5" taller than the chassis. This is to house the 140mm fans and not encroach on interior space. Moving down, we run into the rear I/O hole next to the 120mm rear exhaust fan. LanCool even adds grommets that allow for ½" tubing to pass into and out of the rear of the chassis. Continuing down, there are the eight vented expansion slots, next to which is the screw-less VGA clamping systems mounting plate. That leaves us with the rather large hole at the very bottom for power supply installation.

Underneath the LanCool chassis you will find four rubber round stick on feet to keep the chassis off the table top to allow better airflow to get through the removable fan filter. This hole is to allow a PSU to be installed in the fan down position.

The top of the PC-K62 is louvered to allow the air to have an easy path to exit the chassis once the dual 140mm fans push it up. At the very front of the top (pictured at the bottom) are the front I/O connections.

Getting a little closer to the front I/O shows the LanCool name plate that is placed just behind the I/O. The front I/O consists of the reset switch, two USB 2.0 connections, microphone and audio out 3.5mm jacks and the power switch. To the far right are two LEDs that denote both power and HDD activity.
