Lancool PC-K62R Red Dragon reviewed - Installation and testing

Review: Red for the win


Installation and testing

We mounted the PSU and fastened it with Lian-Li’s strange L-shaped bracket. We must admit that this mechanism is pretty simple and practical, but so are four screws.

The fans are quiet but Lian-Li’s Fan Speed Controller is there in case you need to control them manually.

Mounting HDDs is not time-consuming, but it does require you to take the side panel off in order to connect the cables.

Test bed:

Motherboard: MSI P35 Platinum (MSI)

Processor: Intel Core 2 Extreme x6800, 2x 2.93GHz   (Intel)

Memory: A-Data Extreme DDR2 800 (2x1GB)

Graphic Card: EVGA Geforce 260 GTX  (EVGA)

PSU: OCZ GXS 700, 700 W (OCZ)

CPU-Cooler: Gelid Tranquillo (Gelid Solution Ltd.)

Case: Lancool PC K62R Red Dragon (CaseKing)

Our test CPU cooler was Gelid Tranquillo, which we’ve so far used in Cooler Master’s HAF 922. The nice in-case airflow allowed for stable operation of our processor, which was overclocked to 3.3GHz.

After half an hour of Prime 95 torture, the temperature within the case was at 55°C, which is almost identical to HAF 922’s results. The fans ran at maximum RPM throughout our tests yet they were never too loud.

Lancool PC K62R Red Dragon didn’t fail us and our test only confirmed why this case already has a good reputation.
