Lancool is a subsidiary of Lian Li. The Lancool Dragon Lord cases are less expensive cases that have many of the innovative features Lian Li is famous for. Ventilation, airflow, and cooling are excellent. With 5 external drive bays you can install two optical drives and still have room for a 4-in-3 bay device with a 120mm fan that can accomodate 4 additional internal drives.
I just ordered a Lian Li Lancool PC-k62, so naturally my vote goes for it over the 902. However, I don't believe you would be dissatisfied with either, just go with the one you find better looking. Although, the build quality on the Lancool should be superior.
Side vents can improve gpu temp, but it will be marginal.
edited : any recommendation of cpu coolers?, depending on airflow direction each cooler might work differently in the case. I was thinking putting corsair h50 intake at the back on the k62 so the 140 can suck out the hot air right after
Correct me if I'm wrong, but the 902 is steel with plastic bits, the same as the K62 is steel with plastic bits. I have the K62 and it's a damn nice case. Almost identical to the Lian Li P50 except the P50 is aluminum and imo the K62 has a better hard drive cage design.

I have a Lian Li mini tower. It is carefully thought through. You can see the good design. It is made with the user in mind, not like most of these other Chinese designs which give no thought to the user. As for the Antec, isn't this American?
What kind of temps on your CPU and video and video card do you get with the Lian Li. I've been looking at the Lian Li and the HAF 912 and can't really decide which one to get. The Lian Li looks cool, but has no side air duct.
