Lian Li Armoursuit PC-P80 chassis
The Lian Li Armoursuit PC-P80 is, despite the garish Spiderman look of this particular review sample in my eyes, a rather attractive proposition as a case. The overall design is simple, functional and to-the-point on the basic, non-branded model and the addition of fans all over the case means that the cooling performance is excellent... providing you can live with the noise (or kit the case out with rheostats).
There are only a few drawbacks to the PC-P80 in fact, though some of them are worryingly fundamental. For example, missing screws and the lack of a manual is a pretty basic error – one an accomplished manufacturer like Lian Li should never make and that doesn’t bode well.
The look of the case for this ATI model is also pretty dividing – you either love it or hate it, with very little middle ground for customers to sit in. This design isn’t for the faint hearted at all, but ATI fanboys will lap it up.
Still, if a cool running PC is what you’re after and you happen to think the Armoursuit PC-P80 looks as good as it runs then there’s absolutely no reason not to go for it. Although the recommended retail price for the basic model is £250 ($399), which is kind of steep in our opinion – the fact that Xcase has the standard version on pre-order for £199 (inc. VAT) makes things a little bit easier to stomach though. The ATI version shown here is even more expensive, at around about £299 – ludicrously expensive? Perhaps, but the PC-P80 does have an awful lot going in its favour to justify the cost.
