Lian Li Lancool One Digital Mid-Tower Chassis
Straight out of the packaging, the Lancool one digital looks like a nice case. The diamond air gap opening in the front panel gives a cool look as the middle beam separated the two brushed aluminum panels on the opposing sides. If you look closely, you can make out the preinstalled fan behind the front filter through the diamond-shaped vent.
Looking at the top, the Lancool keeps the center separating bar aesthetic in play here as the top ventilation splits in the same way with a white center separation. The entire top grille and center bar is a single piece which is magnetically affixed to the chassis for easy removal and cleaning.
The front I/O as its name implies is on the front of the chassis. Even though it first appeared to be part of the front panel, in reality, it is a separate piece which is mounted to the chassis itself, and therefore the front panel can be removed separately, well at least somewhat. We will look at that soon. The front I/O is fitted with modern connectivity such as. USB Type-C with full USB 3.2 Gen 2 support, HDD LED, LED button to control front panel illumination, Power button, dual USB 3,2 Gen 1 Type-C ports, and Headphone and Microphone analog 3.5mm jacks.
The main panel of the Lancool One is solid tempered glass which is seamless due to its rear mounting configuration. It has captive screws in place which stay on the panel when removed. The surround edges of the panel are blacked out to ensure you do not see the frame and makes for a clean bezel or border look.
The rear of the Lancool One Digital is somewhat standard for a mid-tower. The motherboard I/O is directly adjacent to the preinstalled 120mm fan which the mounting has five levels of vertical placement. This is useful to adjust the fan as needed to either match your tower air cooler and direct airflow or even clear liquid cooling components.
The expansion slots number 7 which is standard, but there are vertical slots as well in case you want to vertically mount your GPU, however, you will have to buy the extension separately to achieve this. The PSU is fairly standard mounting, and you can see here the TG side panels screws which are captive to the panel.
The cable management side of the Lancool One Digital has a solid steel side panel which is fastened at the top by two large thumbscrew style fasteners. The panel with those screws removed tilts top first away from the chassis then can be removed.
The bottom of the Lancool One Digital is mainly taken over by the extended removable dust filter for the PSU area. This dust filter slides out from the rear of the chassis for easy maintenance without having to tilt your case over to remove the filter. The forward most point has adjustable mounting points again, but this time it's for the HDD cage floor mount.
The total adjustment points are ten steps to allow you to tune your HDD cage placement precisely, or to remove it entirely should you not need it. The feet are on all four corners and are color matched plastic with rubber square pads to keep it from sliding across the surface it is placed on. Also, the front panel overhangs to match the feet height, which also serves as an excellent area to grab and remove the panel.
