Lancool PC-K62R Red Dragon reviewed - Conclusion

Review: Red for the win


Conclusion

Although at a glance it might seem as just another standard case, Lancool’s PC K62R Red Dragon case hides much of what graces it. Naturally, knowing Lian-Li’s designs this is not a surprise. Within you’ll find all the space you need, openings for CPU coolers and cable management, rubber pucks to prevent HDD vibration and 4 silent fans.

Windowed Plexiglas panels, which can be purchased for this case, make a relatively uninspiring black box really come to life and the red interior coupled with red LED lamps really makes for a nice view. You can get Lancool K62 Midi-Tower - Red Dragon Window Edition for about 90 euro, here.

Since we’re talking about cost-down versions of Lian-Li cases, some things had to suffer, so you might find some details that seem as if they lack finishing touches. We’re mostly talking about the inside of the case, where upon closer look you’ll find that HDD brackets seem a little cheapish or that the rubber feet leave marks on the floor.

Red Dragon is a pretty functional case which deserves all plaudits, but things aren’t as bright price-wise. The case goes for €102, which in this times isn’t really what we’d call affordable nor nice bang-per-buck deal.

If however you don’t have monetary issues, like red color and ultimately choose to purchase it, we assure you that you won’t have any sleepless nights over what the case offers.

Special thanks to CaseKing, the company that kindly provided our today’s test sample.

I love the black exteriuor and red interior so these are plus points as well as two fans at the top. Everything seems to be there that you need but I see two minor things that bother me. There is no side fan to assist with high end GPU heat and the placement of the fan controller should be on the front top to make it easy to get to. other than those points this is really a nice looking chassis

I'd prefer the Antec 1200 to this; same features, and, at least imo, looks a lot better.

Interesting case. Nice review.

Could you comment on the distance between the back of the MB tray and the right panel? Perhaps you might measure that distance and post it.

I think, if u want air cooling, it need more fan from side... And if u want some water cooling, it has to much fan...

Dislike how the connector for the CPU go! Look at that, they should made a hole management for the CPU power instead go pass the CPU Cooler like that =( Or there is but the dude who installed this PC is a noob?

Perhaps there is not enough room behind the mb for the cpu cable. That's why I asked how much space there is.

OTOH, maybe the author just doesn't have a cpu cable extension cable.

Idk what you're talking about. On page 4 ("The insides"), the first picture from top to bottom shows quite clearly there is a hole above the mobo stand-off for routing the 8 pin CPU cable. Next time pay some attention to the review before commenting.
