Lancool PC-K9 Series Mid-tower PC Case

Lancool has launched the PC-K9 Series mid-tower PC case, which is designed for ATX, Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX motherboards. Manufactured with easy hardware installation in mind, the case cradles components in a reduced-vibration housing with top-rate thermal performance capabilities. The chassis’ modular HDD cage supports six 3.5-inch HDDs (three 3.5-inch HDD cages in two separate modules) and four 2.5-inch HDDs, using thumb screws with rubber suspension. Users can also choose to have their HDDs face forwards or backwards. The top cage module can be removed, allowing a full 415mm interior space for those who prefer longer VGA cards. The Lancool PC-K9 comes jam packed with a couple of USB 3.0 connectors for 20-pin connectors, to meet up the latest standard of motherboards. Two fans (140mm in the front, and 120mm in the back) prevent user components from overheating. The upper fans and air vents below the PSU include washable air filters to keep the inside of the case clean. The Lancool PC-K9 Series is priced at between $120 to $140. [TechPowerUp]
