Description

I did a build in the just released LianLi LANCOOL II !

I used whatever parts I had lying around that I could use so this isn't a build specifically for gaming or productivity or whatever.

So first things first, this case is incredible! For less than a hundred bucks you get so much quality and nifty design choices. I mean the glass sidepanels that open sideways and the PSU shrouds that you can just flick open, priceless.

What I also liked is the ability to slide the HDD tray back and forth essentially creating more space for those pesky cables coming from the PSU.

Working in this case is a breeze. Enough room for the components that I put in there. You can see that initially I installed my GPU horizontally but since LianLi offers a vertical GPU mounting bracket for this case I decided to go vertically. Did not regret. It looks very good in my opinion.

Mounting the GPU on the bracket and inserting it into the case was a little hard.Two of the screws just didn't fit which made the GPU sag a bit. But the RX5700 XT Nitro+ is one beefy card anyway.

Absolutely loved the additional love for cable management which consists of two panels that hide your atx and pcie cables as well as all other cables. I still stuggled with the fan hub and all those things but I must look into an alternative. Right now I used two Antec fan / rgb hubs :') .

LianLi provided a GPU holder bracket so support the GPU but I did not use it since I mounted vertically and the bracket can't support it when mounted vertically.

Anyway, this is the best case I've built in so far looking at the price, the quality and the looks.

Nice build, how good is the case I’m thinking of getting it when it’s on amazon or Newegg.

For the money this is a great case. I haven't tested the temps so I guess it depends on what you do with it. But I have done many builds in many cases and this is definitely one of the best in terms of bang for buck.

K thx I’m planning on putting a r5 3600 and 2070 super in there so the temps will probably be good.

How is clearance for the 240 AIO on top? Or am I better off with a good 212 EVO or Noctua

Here is the bracket. Don't know if this is the place he got it from though. https://www.microcenter.com/product/605934/lian-li-graphic-card-anti-sag-bracket

Was your motherboard able to sync with the case RGB lights? Can't find many reviews on it and barely any information regarding the RGB sync. From what I found, it uses a 5v ARGB connector. I'm new to RGB syncing and want to preorder the case just not sure exactly what I need to do to get RGB to work. I want the entire build to be compatible with one software.

I'm actually not sure. I always have issues with RGB when I'm using many fans and in this particular build I had to use two RGB/fan hubs to get everything synced. But these particular hubs have their own RGB modes so the connected fans not synced with the mobo. The front panel RGB was connected to the mobo though. The LED strip was connected to the RGB/fan hub.

I'm sorry if this doesn't help you in any way, you can always try to contact LianLi support

Is this by chance the controller you used? I know you mentioned Antec. If I have to purchase a controller or something that's fine, I'm just trying to get some ideas so I can order the right compatibility and be able to control everything with one program. This particular Antec set is compatible with nearly all of the big RGB softwares.

Really appreciate that, thank you. More builds are coming up but the bar might have been set a bit high with a feature on my first complete build that I added to PCPP xD

Thank you for your kind words. This is my first entry to PCPP and I cannot believe all the great comments and feedback I get. I make many builds and I plan to share them on PCPP more often now that I know how great the community is!

Nicce build, i would just take better ram (3200 CAS 14 or 3600 CAS 16) and fans with a better CFM, 46 is a bit low for that price even if it is a 5-Pack

I have seen a few youtubers review this case but I haven’t really seen much in it besides that. An I saw that you commented on testing temps. Any update on that with the case? As well, have you tried any other fans with the case? Or did you just stick with the current fans? On another note, how’s the sound? Silent, light hum, console like fan? Or large engine like? Nice build by the way.

I can't really tell, but I love this case but have the fact that it has glass on the backside. But from the way it looks, it looks like its has metal sheets blacking the cable management from being seen threw the glass on the back side? Is that how its set up?

Just awesome ! Now that you have had this setup for a while can you tell me what kind of temps are you hitting with your gpu and cpu. Are you happy with the air flow or is it toasty?

What did you do with the 3 pin connector from the front RGB?
