LanCool First Knight PC-K63 Mid Tower Case Review

The LanCool First Knight PC-K63 Mid Tower Case




From the front the PC-K63 has an unusual shape around the optical drive bays and the vented area at the bottom; the shape reminds me of a bowling pin cut off at the painted crown. Even so, from this angle I like what's going on so far.




The top of the chassis houses the I/O and a large area for the pair of 140mm fans under this to blow through the eight louvers.




Going from left to right, you have an e-SATA, USB 3.0, USB 2.0 connections, audio jacks, and the reset and power buttons to finish it off.




Looking at the left of the PC-K63, you first notice the window; at least I did. The shape of the right edge makes your eyes move to the profile of the chassis which has the appearance of the top leaning forward. This is an illusion that allowed enough room for the fans under the top and to house the I/O while keeping just what is needed in materials near the bottom.




The rear of the chassis has a pretty standard bottom mounting PSU layout. The 140mm LED fan that can slide out is placed over a pair of water tubing holes. Moving down, you run into the eight expansion slots with ventilated covers and next to it the chassis is not ventilated. They do, however, add a bit of venting to the right of the power supply.




The right side panel is plain black steel and has a pair of thumbscrews just like the other panel for removal.




Under the chassis you can see it gets supported with large rubber feet. In the rear of the chassis there are more louvers to allow the PSU to breathe, and there is even this clip-in duct filter. If you look hard enough, you can see the pair of black 140mm fans in the top.
