Lancool PC-K62R Red Dragon reviewed - First look at Red Dragon

Review: Red for the win


First look at Red Dragon

PC K62R Red Dragon’s looks isn’t the only selling point for Lancool’s case – there are many more surprises within the case.

There’s plenty of room in the red-colored interior. Lancool left a lot of holes in the panel that should make cable management and swaping CPU coolers a breeze, and there’s plenty of space for the HDD and optical devices as well. 

1

The case is as tough as it gets – stainless steel does that. In this case, the steel isn’t brushed but a bit rough like a fine sandpaper.

Red Dragon is 49.6cm high, 21.4cm wide and 49.8cm long. The case comes with rubber feet that help with lessening vibration noise.

The front panel is closed with a two-layer wire mesh, which allows for air-intake without inviting dust in. Two-layer mesh is placed on most openings in the case and the inside layer, which is a finer mesh, can easily be removed and cleaned.

2

The upper part of the front panel will take up to ___ 5.25’’ optical devices, whereas the lower part is reserved for the 140mm (1000rpm) fan with a red LED lamp. The fan isn’t visible until the LED lamp lights up, and the fan draws in fresh air for HDDs/SSDs as well as the rest of components within the case.

3

On the top of the case you’ll find ON/OFF keys, 2xUSB ports, microphone and headphone jacks and Lancool’s logo. The rear part of the top panel is reserved for air-outlets. The case comes with two preinstalled 140mm fans.

4

The top panel can be taken off, but not before the front panel is removed. This “process” however, shouldn’t take more than 20 seconds.

Side panels are removed by a tug backwards, which isn’t easy and it takes some force, but once in place - side panels are stable and won’t vibrate. The screws that hold the side-panels in place don’t need tools to operate – you can unscrew them by hand.

14a

The standard version of PC-G62R case comes with two metal side-panels, but you can order the windowed version and mount it with no trouble. We must admit that Red Dragon looks much better with the window on the side as the red interior really makes for a nice view.

5

As you can see from the following picture, there are one vertical and 8 standard expansion slots. You’ll find a 120mm (1500rpm) fan with a red LED lamp, so no lack of redness here.

Lancool seems to have thought about everything and there are two holes for external water cooling.

6

PSU is mounted on the bottom. Thanks to the rubber feet, the case is about 1cm from the floor, which helps the power supply get air.

7

The wire mesh is in action here as well, preventing dust from entering the case. Like the rest of them, it can be taken off and cleaned.
