Conclusion: Lian Li is like the Lexus of computer case manufacturers. They have traditionally been at the forefront of design features, like removable motherboard trays and use of anodized aluminum, and as a result, their cases have always come at a premium. The Armorsuit PC-P80R is no exception, featuring an aluminum design and silent technology designed specifically to address many of the concerns of modern enthusiasts.
Summary: Lian Li has named this full tower case the Armorsuit and its targeted at the hardcore gamer. It has an all aluminum chassis so it's fairly lightweight considering its size. There are plenty of drive bays, lots of room to work, removable motherboard tray, five large fans, fits long power supplies & full length video card and much more. The Lian Li PC-P80 Case is one of the best cases ever released! Watch the video to find out more and check out the bloopers at the end.
Summary: You also get a host of screws for mounting your PCI cards, and we give Lian Li credit for matching the color and texture of the brackets to the rest of the case. Minus the PCI retention mechanism, our only other complaint concerns the case’s simplicity. Other costly cases just have more—digital panels or built-in water cooling—which can help justify an exorbitant price tag. But if elegance is what you’re after, the PC-P80R has it in spades.
Pros: Lightweight; stylin'; spacious; rear mobo tray; holes for water-cooling; tons of features.
Cons: Why does everyone use those damned retention bars? And for a case this expensive, we'd have liked to see a few more bells and whistles.
Summary: The Lian Li Armorsuit PC-P80R AMD/ATI Spider Edition case is an incredibly huge "super" full tower case built for all the AMD & ATI fans out there. The Spider logo on the side panel is very well done, as is the rest of the design. Nearly everything is removable on this case: the motherboard tray, the power supply bracket, the expansion card support and even the top.
