Inside The LanCool Dragon Lord PC-K62 Advanced Mid tower Case

Since all the rear panel goodies should be fresh in your mind from the outside image, here's a look from the inside. Most notable is the same VGA locking system I had in my PC-B70, which I really like both its looks and functionality. Just above this mechanism you can see the padlock loop hanging off the back of the chassis for those who need to lock up their hardware. The last thing I want to cover here is the padded rails at the bottom that keep your PSU off the floor of the chassis. In case you put the chassis on the carpet, air can still be drawn into the PSU from inside the PC-K62.

The motherboard tray is set up from the factory ready to accept a full ATX motherboard. The stand offs are already there. Looking around the tray, you will find four wire management holes; two at the bottom, and two on the right side. Something found in a lot of the newer chassis' is the CPU cooler back plate access hole. A nice tray in my opinion for a budget builder's case!

Another look at the floor of the chassis shows a few things. One, there is a plastic rail placed to aide in containing all the PSU wires as they leave the PSU on their destinations to the appropriate component. The right side, or front of the chassis, allows for four 3.5" hard drives to be mounted in a screw-less fashion and slide into the rack. Lastly, we get a glimpse of the front intake 140mm fan.

Stepping back a bit allows the 5.25" drive bays to be seen. The top two have a more simplified screw-less mechanism than did my PC-B70, but the two included devices work just as well as the ones I had seen before and are just as simple to use. Just remove the front bezel and the correct front clip in vented panel, squeeze the screw-less mounts clip to unlock it, swing it left, slide in the drive and snap the lock back into place. The bottom three bays need the use of screws to mount drives in those.

Removing the rear panel gives a good look at the inside of the rear of the motherboard tray and just how you need to route the wires to get them where they need to go. From the outer edge of the support under the tray to the panel is just under ½" of room to route wiring.

Prepping for the installation, I removed the vented plastic front bezel. This allowed me to also gain access to the intakes fan filter that snaps in and out for easy cleaning. As far as removing the vented front sections, there is a tab on either side to release and they slide right out to allow optical drives to show through.
