LanCool First Knight PC-K63 Mid Tower Case Review

Inside the LanCool First Knight PC-K63 Mid tower Case




Once both panels are removed we get a really good look inside the PC-K63. You will find the large white box zip tied to the hard drive bays that are full of extra hardware. It also appears there is wiring near the floor coming out of nowhere, but more on that in a bit.




In the front you can see that only two of the three optical bays come with a tool-less mechanism for mounting devices. The rest of the area behind the fans is taken up with two hard drive racks that can hold three drives each.




Did I mention these are removable? You can install both, the top one, the bottom one, or none at all; it's up to you to decide.




The motherboard tray is separated from both the drive bay area and the floor of the chassis. While it does tend to offer more wiring freedom, a tidy appearance usually isn't all that possible. LanCool has a trick for that! The tray itself has risers already installed for an ATX motherboard, has a large access hole, and four places to tie up loose wiring.




In the back there is the clear 140mm fan and the eight expansion slots. I like that the tool-less mechanism from most Lian Li chassis' has made it over to this case.




Behind the tray we can finally see LanCool's wiring trick. While I have seen similar locks that this system uses, they were typically tabbed where they were needed. Here all the wires get routed into the channel, and via notches on both sides you can adjust where the wiring comes out.




Wiring here covers connections for power and all that, USB 2.0 and HD audio that connect to the motherboard. There is also a really short USB 3.0 cable and all of the case fans are 3-pins with Molex adapters installed for power.
