Project Lancool

Hey guys! It's been a while since I had the chance to post a new project build on here, so I'm super excited to post this one!

This is Project Lancool, and this build was a build that we were contracted with Lian Li to help showcase their newly launched Lancool III chassis. They specifically stated they wanted me to showcase the ability to mount three 360mm radiators with a full custom loop. Suffice to say, I went crazy with it.

I actually had to build this entire rig in one long mad dash, since we had some sponsored parts arrive at the last minute, holding the build back from being finished. I had only started building this the day before the case launch, so I timed myself. 20 hours straight, figured I'd stay up all night to complete it. Started at 10am, Thursday and finished it with OS installed at 6am, Friday.

Due to the crazy timeline, this build is actually pretty special to me. I was all alone, and fully in my element. I let my creative side go crazy, essentially at first because I had no choice. I had no idea what actual design or look I wanted. For the most part, I wing the design each time as the build is done. This allows for a more natural approach at filling in your canvas with something truly unique. But I usually do that over a week or few weeks for a build. So it was a super fun challenge to try and nail something cool that is still somewhat different than what you'd find inside your usual case, being that this case is still considered a traditional layout chassis - which I find a bit boring these days.

Super happy with how the build turned out though, and I am really happy that a ton of people have been loving it so far. I hope you enjoy it too!


Also, HUGE thank you to the sponsors who helped provide the parts for this build, as none of it would be possible without them!
