Lian Li reveals their Airflow-Focused LANCOOL 216 PC Chassis

Press Release - Lian Li Launches Airflow Focused LANCOOL 216 Case

LIAN LI Industrial Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of chassis and PC accessories, announces the LANCOOL 216, an airflow focused case. Pre-installed with two 160 mm and one 140 mm PWM fan, the LANCOOL 216 offers great out-of-box performance and can be configured from air cooling to AIO cooling mode by lowering/raising the motherboard position. To help balance the case airflow and provide better GPU cooling, the Lancool 216 includes an external PCIe fan bracket that supports a 120 mm fan to be mounted on the rear panel, in front of the expansion slots. The LANCOOL 216 is available in black with non-RGB front fans, and in black or white with addressable RGB front fans.

To ensure plenty of air is passed through, the LANCOOL 216 features a continuous front-to-top fine mesh panel and a PSU shroud side mesh panel. Paired with 2 x 160 mm and 1x 140 mm pre-installed PWM fans, the LANCOOL 216 ensures great out-of-box performance. For air cooling solutions, the LANCOOL 216's rear I/O can be flipped and the motherboard standoffs set higher in the main chamber to allow up to 2x 140 mm fans above the PSU shroud and at the top of the case. In water-cooling mode, with a motherboard in a lower position, the top of the case can be fitted with up to a 360 mm radiator for AIO or custom water-cooling loop design.

Additional Airflow

In addition to the 140 mm fan pre-installed at the rear of the case, the LANCOOL 216 also supports an additional 120 mm fan behind the expansion slots. The included PCIe fan bracket accessory can be used in air-cooling mode in conjunction with horizontal GPUs at the 1st expansion slot, or with vertical GPU closer to the motherboard without obstructing the GPU I/O while providing better cooling for the GPU and a greater intake/exhaust balance for the system.

Easy to Build & Easier Access

The removable top radiator bracket opens the case to simplify the installation of hardware in the main chamber. In the second chamber, 5 Velcro straps, clips, and tie points provide clear routing options for cable management. Lastly, the drive cage in the PSU shroud compartment, which can be moved to accommodate front-mounted radiator/fan combos, supports the mounting of 3.5" HDDs and 2.5" SSDs simultaneously on both of its trays. The front panel I/O module can be moved to the lower left side of the front panel for easier access when the case is set on a table.

Optional ARGB Front I/O Accessory

To provide greater control of the light effects on the LANCOOL 216 RGB front fans, an additional ARGB front I/O accessory, the ARGB control & USB module, can be installed at the lower side of the front panel. The additional I/O lets users control the two addressable LEDs channels (opening rim and fan blade shaft) individually to create custom styles. The ARGB control & USB module additional accessory is available in black and white at an MSRP of $13.99.

The LANCOOL 216 Black, Black RGB, and White RGB are available for pre-order at Newegg starting November 11th, 2022, and at Caseking.de and Overclockers.co.uk starting November 21st, 2022.

The new Lian Li Inf 120 fans are coming soon which will follow phantek in being thicker than 25mm for 10% increased airflow.

Would go well with this case.Quote

Soon? They have been out for months now. I purchased 3 sets of 3 and a single for the rear for my new build. Expensive but worth it.Quote

No they haven't. Im not talking about the ones you see now. They have a version 2 coming. Which are 30mm thick. It also reduces total number of cables and allows you to pair two sets of 3 fans via cable link.

Release date: 7th November

Current ones are only 25mm thick
