We first heard about the Lian-Li Lancool 216 earlier this month. Today, it was officially announced that this new airflow-focused chassis will be available in the UK, priced at a reasonable £109.99.
The Lancool 216 delivers a sleeker design and more mesh panels compared to its predecessor. The case also stands out thanks to its two custom 160mm front fans, which are larger than your traditional 120mm or 140mm case fans to help pull in more cool air from the mesh front panel. In addition, you can change the internal layout between air cooling mode for more fans and water cooling mode to add a 360mm radiator in the roof.
To make the system mounting process easier, there's a removable top bracket for the radiator in the main chamber. On the second chamber (right side of the case), you can use the five velcro straps and various clip tie points to route cables. The PSU shroud can also be moved to make extra room for a liquid cooling radiator in the front. The front I/O panel can be moved to the lower left side of the front panel too so there are a lot of configuration options available for seasoned PC builders.
Available in black or white with RGB lighting, the Lancool 216 is now available to pre-order in the UK. The black version will launch at £109.99, while the white version will cost £114.95. Currently, the Overclockers UK team is also giving away a Lancool 216 ARGB controller, so if you plan on buying the case, you should consider entering so you can kit your case out further with additional lighting gear.
