Lancool II Review – The New BENCHMARK For $90!

by birtanpublished on April 3, 2021

I have not been this excited for mid-tower enclosure in a while and Liam me seems like it's surprising everyone that's coming up with fresh ideas what's up good people I'm three tree and this is my review of the land cool – it's easily one of my favorite cases of the year followed by the pea 600's because of that awesome fabric mesh integration but the Len co2 is an affordable feature packed good-looking case available in black or white that I'm excited to break down for you want to step up your airflow game look no further than the master fan SF 120 M from coolermaster featuring a damping frame designed to

Ensure stability a connected fan blade design for optimal cooling performance and an anti vibration motor that ensures better acoustics it's very simple to install and it comes with three fan speed controls check it out down below alright so first of all Liam Lee is moving away from aluminum as hitting a formal prices with steel is just easier so the frame and all the paneling are steel I can't find anything aluminum on the enclosure and I'm not a fan of the slightly grainy texture as it still takes up finger oils but the build quality is fine from a swivel TG panels

To magnetic shroud doors the magnets are right behind the rubber pads and are quiet strong the same for the TJ panels that look very clean but no way to fully secure them I love the perforation design across the front panel and even the sides you can see the bottom indentation is on purpose for better GPU airflow while the front sections are covered with a dust filter that is lighter on one side for better light illumination I feel like that's pretty genius the front panel also connects with prongs so you never have to deal with cables they are of course

Addressable LED strips and come with plenty of color presets but if your motherboard supports 5 volt a RGB input just plug in the included cable for traditional color sync and there's also a male connector into which you can plug in other lighting strips like I've done here with this optional accessory to spice up your system I love the uniformity of the color and the brightness too plus its magnetic and adhesive at the same time speaking of accessories you can get this vertical GPU kit that is a bit pricey and replaces all the horizontal slots but

It's far away from the glass panel there's also a hot swap kit for the hard drive cage below that you installed the high indication that is an awesome way to encourage people to use that space for storage it be removed but the real system is quite flexible for appropriate placement in case you remove the front a shroud section for radiators or need extra space in front of you PSU but what I find really interesting is that front fan bracket it will support triple 120s on the internal side or dual want for team of fans on the exterior side it is

Fully removable and modular so there are four positions available for this bracket either with the exterior facing the front in two positions or with the exterior side facing inside the case and this gives you many clearance configurations but more importantly allows easy push pull setups since the bracket is installed from the front on my pre-production sample the plastic tabs were not glued to the frame so they kept popping out but that will not be an issue for retail units and they will also fix these i/o cables that will be fully tucked away behind the motherboard

Tray as on my unit they kind of Bunch out too much the i/o is up top with lighting and PR buttons combo audio jack do USB 3s and an optional space for a Type C connection if you get the accessory and I guess if you really need Type C it's not that expensive to add top cooling options are standard with dual 120 s and 140s and their respective radiators as you can see the mount is both on Rails and an offset option is available to clear the motherboard area we have three fans included on the case one in the front and two for exhaust you can further mount dual 120 fans on

Top of the PSU shroud just below the GPU and the cable bar beside the motherboard is rotatable to make room for a ATX motherboards up to 280 millimeters we installed the new TRX for Zenith motherboard just for fun and it fit but those top connections on the top right are a bit uncomfortable to reach so instead I mounted the latest x2 99 with Cascade like X in the case with the nock to a cooler facing up as otherwise it overlaps with the first PCI slot and here is where we ran into our first issue the graphics card make contact with that cable cover and this is a

Concern because what if it shorts out or prevents a proper mount and this is with a reference style PCB on this EVGA card so the keel bar is slightly higher than the SATA connections but what happens if we mount an even longer large card like this 2080 Strix I even rotated the cable bar so it's slightly further out and the same thing happened but this time the shroud the plastic shroud of the cooler is making contact and you can press down into the cable bar however after all the worry when we place the computer upright the graphics card no longer make contact with the

Cable bar and it seems like the weight on the motherboard and all the hardware on top of it was pressing into the frame so the motherboard tray was lower than normal but in the upright position the graphics card does not make contact with the kale bar that's good the interior as you can see is super clean I love the cutout in the top right for my dual eight pins on this x2 99 motherboard it's very well placed and I would say the same thing for the cutouts below the motherboard and for the cable part too I also like the utilization of that shroud door to house two more SSDs

Nice and convenient and easy to route the paneling behind the motherboard is very well done from a coverage perspective you can see the almost cover the entire area with only the SSDs visible and I would actually leave the tgd panel off as this layered look for the rear is just more interesting in total we have three removable panels the main cover for the CPU cut out a smaller cover behind it that's used to prevent cables from making contact with the motherboard I think and then the largest panel to hide the main side opening and so far this is the best panel design

I've worked with that doesn't come in a way of routing cables however I absolutely hate the thumb screws Lindley used here because they're just not easy to handle I cleaned up everything in about 10 minutes securing all the cables and their own sections and this is the first time actually used all cable ties that come with a case just so the panels go into position without any force and the end result is absolutely clean interior and the rear section tube lastly the PSU filter is removable from the back with this vented design normally we see this on frontale's like

On fractal design cases so it's good quality no complaints here and since I build this with new hardware than my normal test configuration I don't have comparable temperature results but here's the cooling data with the front panel on and off as I suspected the dual exhaust fans worked their magic plus the semi open front panel delivers fresh air for the GPU it is not an oven and for $89 it that satisfactory criteria now we haven't given out the case award in a while but the Lanco 2 is the new definition of a budget-friendly

Performance-oriented and closure and deserves the Harbour Canucks damn good award thanks so much for watching check out this other relevant content subscribe for more I'll talk to you in the next video
