Sponsor: Get 10% off Squarespace purchases (
The Lian Li Lancool 216 is a highly competitive case at $100, launching today, and replaces the Lancool 215 while offering cheaper access to Lancool III features. Our review of the 216 looks at thermals, noise, noise-normalized thermals, and build quality features (like cable management, the unique rear fan, the custom-molded front fans, and the accessible top panel). The benchmarks have the 216 instantly as a competitive case worth learning about. We also show before-and-after shots for “water cooling mode” and “air cooling mode.”
