The LANCOOL II from case specialists Lian Li is a modern Midi-Tower characterised by its combination of stylish design and excellent cooling performance, not to mention Lian Li's customary eye for detail. The case itself has a robust steel frame and a fully removable RGB front cover with tempered glass- and steel side panels that swing outwards. The interior offers space for both dual- and even triple radiators, multiple drives and other powerful pieces of hardware.

The Features of the Lian Li LANCOOL II Midi-Tower at a Glance:

  • Premium Midi-Tower for motherboards up to E-ATX
  • Integrated, digitally addressable RGB-LED lighting
  • Tempered glass side doors with magnetic closing mechanism
  • Large mesh surfaces for improved air flow
  • Space for graphics cards up to 384 mm long
  • Designed for dual- and triple radiators
  • Includes three 120 mm fans, up to eight supported
  • Supports up to seven drives such as SSDs and traditional hard drives

LANCOOL II: Midi-Tower for Air- and Water Cooling

Those who prefer for traditional air cooling will love this case, that's because the LANCOOL II offers users the option of installing up to a total of eight fans. The front supports up to three 120- or two 140 mm fans, with the roof supporting two fans up to 140 mm in diameter. Two 120 mm fans can be installed in the top of the PSU shroud and a 120 mm model can be attached to the rear wall of the case. Installed by Lian Li themselves, the case includes three 120 mm fans pre-installed: one on the front, one at the back and one in the roof. CPU coolers can be up to 176 mm tall.

Lian Li also took the installation of AiO- and custom water cooling solutions: the front allows for a 360 mm triple radiator or a 280 mm dual radiator. A removable slide-out bay makes installation much easier. This can be mounted in two differing ways, allowing up to 110 mm of space for radiators and fans or for increasing the space available to fans with a slimmer radiator from the front cover. The roof allows for a 240 mm radiator to be installed. Up to 65 mm of space (depth) is available.

Stylish and Functional Design

The LANCOOL II has been designed from the ground up with an eye to cooling powerful hardware, offering multiple air inlets as a result: the otherwise smooth and sleek front cover is embedded with two 35 mm wide mesh strips along with an aluminium plaque that bears the manufacturer's name. The rear, roof and bottom of the case all include large air in- and outlets. The front and the roof are equipped with magnetic dust filters, and the dust filter underneath the power supply is located in a slide-out tray. As such all filters are removable and easily cleaned.

Yet the LANCOOL II has more to offer than just functionality, it is no slouch in the looks department either: the mesh openings in the side of the angular front help show off the integrated digitally addressable RGB lighting. Both side panels of the case consist of tempered glass. They are attached by means of hinges towards the rear of the case, and fold outwards.

Lian Li also designed the side doors to close in a smart manner: magnets! Both can be closed without the need for screws as a result. The design of the case means that users will enjoy being able to minimise the amount of unsightly wires and cables on show.

Space for Components and Drives

The completely black interior offers plenty of space for powerful hardware, for example for E-ATX motherboards up to a width of 280 millimeters and high-performance gaming graphics cards up to 384 millimeters in length. Two 2.5-inch SSDs can be mounted on individual mounts to the back of the motherboard tray. The right cover panel accommodates two more 2.5-inch drives on the inside. Under the power supply cover of the LANCOOL II lies a drive cage for three 3.5" or 2.5" drives. An ATX power supply unit measuring up to 210 millimeters will fit the case.

The I/O panel of the LANCOOL II provides two USB 3.0 type A connectors and a 4-pin 3.5 mm jack for headsets. In addition to power and reset buttons, the controls also include two buttons for controlling the RGB lighting. A USB-C port is also provided. The corresponding connection cable with a USB 3.1 Type C socket can be purchased separately here.
Attention! The manufacturer points out that 140 or 280 radiators must not be mounted towards the inside of the radiator holder under any circumstances, as this may otherwise be bent. Please follow the instructions in the manual.

Attention! 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.

great case

by Ricci Pridmore star star star star star

needed to upgrade my case as my old cases 200mm fan snapped, saw this looks cool, great price (got it on bundle deal with new psu) heavy case solid steel construction, 2 tempered glass door all come off really easy, fits all the stuff i needed in easily and very simple to make it look good with all the room for cable management behind the motherboard area and it shielded from view by panels,, room for 7 drives in total, 2 small things for me was cant fit my cd writer due to no slots for it, and the bottom is a bit tight for all the poweer cabling i needed to put in, but still well worth the 5 stars, also even if you MB doesn't support rgb the led light on front can be run via the case itself so still ge t the fancy lighting effects.

100 out of 10

Snapped this up as soon as i saw it listed, the pics dont do it justice, opening the box and seeing it for the first time i was well impressed, the build is top notch, would defo recomend

A must have case for the price

by Jack star star star star star

It was between this or an NZXT case. I got this one in the end and it blew my expectations for sub 100 cases out of the water. an 80 case with glass panels on both sides, and a feature set that not many 200 cases can boast including a cable manangment system where you hide away the cables under metal panels for a clean look. Construction quality is also A+ with only a few plastic parts. Theres a load of accessrories they build for this case too, side mounted GPU racks, addressable RGB strips for a rgb remote built into the case and even a panel to make HDDs hot swappable if you need it. In short if you're looking for a great looking feature rich case don't bother looking any futher then this.
