according to the case spec it should fit the accerlero S1. but they must of left too much room to hide the cables.

I wonder if someone that has the Lancool can measure the depth from the board to the case

Apparently it's a problem with the PCI slot tool-less system.

that's right it's the tool less pci-e locking system. The locks below it get in the way and not just a little bit ( can't remove without all the vents falling out or put screws in them kinda kills the inside look of the case )

ya i am pissed about this i can't believe that no one thought about after market cooling (gpu) in any of the reviews ( and even in the hwc review they install the card with the case standing up i have not done that in oh like for every i lay the case on it's side like i think almost everyone does. Plus i have to buy a new gpu to fit in there this sucks

ok this case is very nice but it seems like they forgot the basics like make the 8 pin cpu power hole the right size i mean on how do you miss something like this I have no idea how i am supposed to fit mine in it does not come apart like a lot of the older ones ( seems to me they tried to hard and forgot the simple stuff ) would i buy again hell yes i don't think it can be beating for 100$ just little things.

EDIT: agghhhjoih come what bull i mean for the last hour and you know what it ain't gonna fit you have got to be kidding me ( last time i give atx cases a try over full tower so much easier to work on ) ok i have removed the motherboard and now it fits barely please fix this lancool how the hell did you miss this

Ok i thought i posted this but i guess i must have exited out of the window before hitting submit.

I replaced my Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme with a Corsair Hydro H50 and just wanted to post that it does fit in the PC-K62.

I had some trouble installing the back plate on the H50 because of the opening on the back of the mother board tray not being big enough but it did fit.



Temperature Differences are:
Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme (NO Fan).
IDLE Temperature:
CPU 21 C
CORE #1 28 C
CORE #2 28 C

100% CPU Load Temperature:
CPU 31.3 C
CORE #1 39.6 C
CORE #2 30.8 C

Corsair Hydro H50 w/Corsair Fan
IDLE Temperature:
CPU 18 C
CORE #1 26 C
CORE #2 28 C

100% CPU Load Temperature:
CPU 26.4 C
CORE #1 34.8 C
CORE #2 28 C

I used Everest CPU Stability test for 30 minutes each time to get my results. Don't know how accurate Everest is but those are my results!
