The housing is based on a sturdy steel construction with a completely removable, RGB-illuminated front cover and swiveling side parts made of tempered glass and steel. The interior offers space for dual and triple radiators, numerous drives and powerful hardware.
The features of the Lian Li LANCOOL II Midi-Tower at a glance:
- High quality midi tower for mainboards up to E-ATX
- Integrated, digitally addressable RGB LED lighting
- Tempered glass side doors with magnetic lock
- Large mesh areas for excellent airflow
- Space for graphics cards up to 384 mm long
- Suitable for dual and triple radiators
- Including three 120 millimeter fans, up to eight fans possible
- Up to seven data drives such as SSDs and hard drives possible at the same time
- LANCOOL II: Midi tower for air and water cooling
Anyone who relies on classic air cooling will really enjoy this case, because the LANCOOL II offers options for installing a total of eight fans. Three 120 or two 140 fans can be attached to the front, two models up to 140 mm in size can be attached to the lid, two 120 fans can be placed above the power supply cover and a 120 mm model can be attached to the rear wall of the housing. Three 120-millimeter fans are preinstalled in the Midi Tower ex works: one on the front, one on the rear wall and one on the lid. A maximum height of 176 millimeters is provided for CPU coolers.
Lian Li also thought of installing complete and custom water cooling systems: a 360 triple radiator or a 280 dual radiator can be attached to the front. A removable bracket simplifies installation. This can be installed in two different ways to provide up to 110 millimeters of space for heat exchangers and fans or to remove the fans from the front cover with a narrower radiator. A 240 radiator can be mounted on the cover. A total depth of 65 millimeters is planned here.
Chic and functional design
The LANCOOL II was specifically designed with a view to cooling high-performance hardware and offers numerous air intakes: the otherwise smooth front cover of the housing is shaped by two 35-millimeter-wide mesh strips and has an aluminum badge with the manufacturer's name. The back, the lid and the case base are also provided with generous air inlets and outlets. The front and the lid are equipped with magnetic dust filters, the dust filter under the power supply is in a slot. This means that all filters are removable and can be easily cleaned.
But the LANCOOL II not only has a lot to offer in terms of function, but also optically: the mesh openings on the side surfaces of the smooth, trapezoidal front make the integrated, digitally addressable RGB lighting of the housing appear. Both side walls are made of tempered glass. They are attached to hinges on the back of the case and open backwards.
Lian Li managed a special trick when it came to closing: The side doors are closed with a magnet, without screws. Additional support is provided by the cover panels made of sheet steel that open downwards and also serve to hide cables. This concept continues on the back of the mainboard tray, where additional cover plates ensure that most cables remain hidden from the prying eye.
Lots of space for components and drives
The completely black interior offers plenty of space for powerful hardware, for example for E-ATX mainboards up to a width of 280 millimeters and high-performance gaming graphics cards with a length of up to 384 millimeters. Two 2.5-inch SSDs can be mounted on individual carriers on the back of the mainboard tray. The right cover panel accommodates two additional 2.5-inch drives on the inside. Under the power supply cover of the LANCOOL II there is a drive cage for three 3.5 or 2.5 inch drives. There is space for an ATX power supply with a depth of up to 210 millimeters.
The I / O panel of the LANCOOL II offers two USB 3.0 Type A ports and a four-pin 3.5 mm jack socket for headsets. In addition to the power and reset buttons, there are also two buttons for controlling the RGB lighting on the control elements. A USB-C port is also prepared. The corresponding connection cable with a USB 3.1 Type-C socket can be purchased separately (item no .: ZUUS-402).
Caution! The manufacturer would like to point out that 140 or 280 radiators should never be installed on the inside of the radiator bracket, as this could otherwise be bent. Please note the information in the instructions.
The 3-pin RGB connection cable of the integrated RGB lighting may only be connected to a corresponding 3-pin header (5V) for digitally addressable RGB accessories.
