Sacrilege!!!!! To the stocks with the anti-aluminum heathens!!!!!

Seriously though, the word "steel" should never be used in the same context as Lian-Li, and on top of that.... it states "all black" in the first para, but the images of the interior don't jive with that selling point.

I thought that's what Lancool was, steel versions of LiLi cases for the mass market?

Yea, Lancool is the subsidiary of Lian-Li that makes steel versions of Lian-Li cases. And it says all black exteriors, not interiors.

Heh.... that it does, and I can't even claim that the text was changed after the fact as it's right there in the text I copied... dunno why I thought it said interiors, although I suppose it just seems a bit strange to make a point of it for the exterior.

Is lancool an actual subsidiary, and/or is the affiliation with Lian-Li something new on the market?

Ah, don't worry about it, poop and a nap and everything will be all better. Maybe get one of the caretakers to read it to you next time

So many old fart jokes, so little time

Direct subsidiary of Lian-Li. In fact their retail package boxes have the Lian-Li logo on them

Heh, yea it is kind of pointless. Not too mention that most of the exterior is quite clearly plastic and not steel.

As far as I know Lancool was created by Lian-Li, and I'm pretty confident it stayed a subsidiary. Its why, for instance, all the Lancool products on Newegg are listed under Lian-Li and all have Lian-Li in their name. Its Lian-Li Lancool as far as I can tell.

Dyammit Fixt.

Loved my PC-K62s. Hate the PC-K63, at least on picture. Maybe it looks "better" in person.
