LIAN LI Launches New Airflow Focus LANCOOL II MESH


July 10th, 2020, Taipei, Taiwan – LIAN LI Industrial Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of aluminum chassis and PC accessories, is proud to announce a new addition to its LANCOOL series with the LANCOOL II MESH PERFORMANCE and LANCOOL II MESH RGB. Built upon the award-winning design and features of the LANCOOL II, the LANCOOL II MESH incorporates new features that improve chassis airflow and offers an updated look. Available in PERFORMANCE and RGB, both variants sport a dense mesh front panel and left PSU shroud panel for better thermal performance, with different fan configuration and I/O ports focused on fan speed control or lighting effect control respectively.

Unrestricted airflow and adaptable modular PSU shroud

LIAN LI pushes the limits of the LANCOOL II MESH front panel and left side panel with a mesh density that offers the least amount of resistance for maximum airflow while limiting dust infiltration. In addition, the honeycomb pattern perforations located at the top and rear of the case provide for a boost in ventilation.

To complement the added benefits of the mesh, internal modifications have been implemented at the top of the PSU shroud with two new modular openings. Users can either leave the two openings uncovered for an unobstructed airflow between the top and the bottom chamber, mount them with fans to increase the ventilation efficiency, or use the included perforated mounting plates to install 2 SSDs without suffocating the PSU chamber.

To RGB or not to RGB

PC DIY enthusiasts have the option to choose between the PERFORMANCE and RGB configurations. For the LANCOOL II MESH PERFORMANCE, only available in black, the case is equipped with two 140mm PWM fans in the front and an additional 120mm PWM fan at the rear, as well as a PWM fan hub which can host up to 6 fans. For the LANCOOL II MESH RGB, available in black or white, the case ships with three front-mounted 120mm ARGB fans. The PERFORMANCE version of the LANCOOL II MESH exclusively features a fan speed adjustment switch. Through presets of L (low), M (medium), H (high) and A (auto), temperature and power-conscious users can instantly switch between 45%, 75% and 100% of the fan’s full speed, or let the motherboard thermal management solution take the reins. For the RGB version, the lighting effects of the 3 included ARGB fans can be fully managed by the I/O’s C button to switch between the 7 color options, and the M button to toggle through the 8 lighting modes available.

Packed with great features

Inspired by the LANCOOL II, the LANCOOL II MESH is still packed with proven features that make the building experience pleasant and smooth. This includes flip panels all around for easy access to every part of the chassis, modular cable cover plates for easy cable management, an adjustable drive bay and front radiator mounting bracket for optimal flexibility, as well as a cable management bar which can be flipped to accommodate larger motherboards.

The LANCOOL II MESH is available for pre-order starting July 10th, 2020, at an MSRP of $89.99 USD for the PERFORMANCE black and RGB black version, and $94.99 USD for the RGB white. For those of you who pre-order the LANCOOL II MESH with Newegg, Overcklockers.UK or Caseking.de, a free USB 3.1 Type-C accessory cable will be included. Quantities are limited so don’t waste a minute. For more information visit the official product page: http://www.lian-li.com/lancool-ii-mesh/
