Can the community tell me which one of the following to get?

They look pretty similar imo - the Lian Li Lancool k62 or Antec 902?

I am sure the Lancool has way better internal layouts, for cables and vibrations, but it seems 902 is slightly better vented , any suggestions?

My vote goes to the 902....better cooling and front accessible e-SATA, 6 internal bays, 3 external seems better fit than 4 internal / 5 external on LL

You forget the lian-li's build quality far surpasses anything antec has ever made. MY vote is for the lian-li.

I would opt for the K62 as well.

The k62 has tooless motherboard screws and toolless power supply installation. Lian Li hands down.

Lian Li Lancool Dragon Lord Series:

Technical video review by the guys at

Best price in the USA at

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.

the front fans on the 902 looks pretty weak, + do side vents even significantly improve gpu temp?

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.

Sometimes case selection is a matter of personal preference.

I own the Antec 900 however even I'm interested in the PC-k62.

the antec 902 seems to have better cooling no?
October 24, 2009 11:30:23 AM

My 900 has great cooling but I bet the PC-k62 is just as good.
What I like about the PC-k62 is it has better features.

Take a look at the vidio that JohnnyLucky provided in the links.

Personally, I like the Antec 1200 just because of its design, and it comes with a 5-6 fans (front, top, rear) which would make cooling a breeze.

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.
