Not many people know the name LanCool but some of their cases have sparked both heated discussion and feverish buying due to their once limited availability here in North America. However, in the time since we reviewed the very popular PC-K62 DragonLord case, distribution channels have improved so many of their cases have been regularly stocked items at retailers throughout North America.

In order to appeal to a wide variety of consumers LanCool has introduced a large selection of cases which should appeal to most price points. The aforementioned DragonLord series remains their high end offering (even though its price doesn't go past the $175 mark) while the newly introduced First Knight series rounds out the mid range offerings. In this review we will be looking at the First Knight PC-K9 B which offers a surprising number of features and excellent cooling potential.

While the PC K9 cases aren't all that well known around these parts, they share much of their design influence with some contemporary Lian Li products. This similarity isn't just a coincidence either since LanCool is considered Lian Li's "budget friendly" brand and as a result, this new K9 starts at just $129. But there are some tradeoffs...
