lancool_dragon_case_mod_window_unreal_to\
 
This is the Unreal III tribute project I did for a friend, he helped me out a few years ago. Lancool cases come from the engineers at Lian-Li. The Dragonlord K series gives you the same features found in several of Lian Li's aluminum mid towers, but constructed from steel to lower retail cost. The PC-K62 features a 100% tool-less design that makes working with the case enjoyable. IMHO the K62 is currently the best mid tower case on the market. It is incredibly functional and well made. I had opportunity to review the K-60 version that shares the same chassis, but unpainted and lacks window and 2x top 140mm fans

Let's take tour of this chassis before it got modified!

I'm also debating about installing a 200 or 230mm PC cooling fan in the window

You know i thought dell had the best innovations for mounting things and some of the mounts they have for PCI cards are great but that's a whole different level.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

Agreed, Lian Li's Tool-less PCI release clips are still the best I've used to this day...

I've created a 280 fan grill for the top cover, but will remove the ribs in the factory cover first...
 
The top 2x 140mm exhaust grill. The vents in the top cover will be removed.
