Final Thoughts

 

At first I wasn't really sure of the PC-K63 just by looking at the exterior under the bright lights of my photo booth. The plastic of the exterior looks aggressive with the "lean" it appears to have, yet how they did it leaves the chassis with a simple, sleek and overall sharp looking design once I added some power and saw the chassis' full potential in appearance. Once I got past my own issues aesthetically I took all of what the interior has to offer into context and it completely sold me on the chassis.

 

There is a whole checklist of things that most chassis' offer these days. Dust covers, a complete inside and out paint job, great air flow, modular hard drive bays, even USB 3.0. What sets this chassis apart in my mind is that it kept the Lian Li, beefy, expansion card locks, the power supply lock, and the really ingenious yet simple way LanCool took on wire management. After the assembly I was really left with a slick looking build both inside and out, and still am very pleased with the results.

 

The real bonus I see here is that you are getting as close to a Lian Li with steel mid towers as you can with this PC-K63. Most of the features are here that I see in the high end Lian Li lineup. If a full aluminum tower isn't your cup of tea, but you still like what the designs offer, this LanCool is the perfect compromise. What just adds a bright red cherry to this sundae; the amazing price for what you get. While we did just look at a couple of cases under the $100 mark, the LanCool beats them hands down. With the pricing I found at Newegg.com of $129.99 and no additional shipping charges, the First Knight PCK-63 from LanCool has sold me, and I hope you can see that this should be a serious contender for your mid tower build.
