Chic and functional design
The LANCOOL 205 Mesh was specifically designed with a view to cooling high-performance hardware and offers numerous air inlets: The otherwise smooth front cover of the housing is characterized by two wide mesh strips on the sides. The back, the lid and the bottom of the case are also provided with generous air inlets and outlets. The front and the cover are equipped with magnetic dust filters, the dust filter under the power supply unit is in a slot. This means that all filters can be removed and cleaned easily.
The side parts are fastened with knurled screws, which enables the housing to be opened without tools. The lower cover on the left can be removed separately for quick access to the power supply unit and drive cage. Drives can be exchanged quickly and power supply cables added.
