Lian Li Fine Craftmanship Product
Lian Li manufactured ARMORSUIT PC-P50 in Taiwan. The quality and craftsmanship are outstanding. With accolades and awards stretching back for the last two decades due to the unique combination of hand-crafted aspects with advanced machinery. The complete effort used to create every Lian Li chassis is clearly evident in the superior craftsmanship to be found in each one.

The hardware installation with ARMORSUIT PC-P50 is very easy and simple. The front panel and top panel are detachable and they can be removed without tools.

The new ARMORSUIT PC-P50 is targeted for the LAN party gamers. It is a mid-tower case, which is ideal for the latest graphics cards in combination with the best thermal dynamics. All the internal installation can be done without tools, and is easily adjustable to optimize your hardware setup. Especially in the advent of adding in new graphics cards, equipped with 8 PCI slots, can hold three or more graphics cards, supports CrossfireX and 3-way SLI

The new internal layout has the motherboard on top of the power supply unit, which allows for easier access to the motherboard as well as more room above, thus larger CPU coolers can be used. The power supply unit at the button of the case is cooled with fresh cool air directly from the outside of the case, instead of pre-heated air from within. This will bring down the core temperatures and extend the lifespan of the PSu significantly.

To install motherboard require no tools, use tool-less screw to screw a motherboard on case, easily and quickly.

5 out of 5 eggsTop case

Pros: This Lian Li case is a beauty and you can add more fans to improve air flow. I have two 180 and four 120 fans running with Corsair 1050 psu and two evga 560ti video cards and three ssd 120 gb each. Included overkill of 16gb memory. I have owned this case for about two years and have been in and out numerous times with easy access.

Cons: Sorry to see NewEgg is out of stock on thei great case.

Other Thoughts: Messed up my clear side panel and will have to replace. I recommend this case to all interested parities.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case, just not for my application

Pros: Light and very well made, with Lian-Li's attention to detail.

Cons: Turned out to be too short to fit both my motherboard and the Norco SS-500 hard drive modules I wanted to use in my media server. The modules ended up blocking the SATA ports on the mobo.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: Made of quality materials. Bottom mounted power supply. Good cooling and circulation. 9x5.25 bays. Excellent cable management. 98% tool-less. Looks good.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: A little expensive for a computer case but you get what you pay for and this has, by far, been the best case I have ever worked with. A pleasure to build in.

5 out of 5 eggsTypical Lian-Li

Pros: -Typical Lian-Li quality
-Plenty of space to route cabling
-Tons of space to work with
-Plenty drive mounting options
-Tool-less design - I only touched a screwdriver to mount a 3.5" memory card reader into a 5.25" adapter and to mount my CPU cooler...motherboard, et al, all tool-less
-Incredibly quiet, but certainly not silent
-Exceptional

Cons: Negative air pressure design, which isn't a con in and of itself, but I haven't had it long enough to determine dust permeability. It is very well filtered. Nothing should have to leak around the filters, but time will tell.

Other Thoughts: Since the first time I put together a computer with a Lian Li case I have not built one for personal use with any other brand of case. This is about my 10th Lian-Li case and every one of them has served me well. Up until a few months ago I was still using a Lian-Li Full Tower case that I bought in roughly 2002 for a server. That case had seen at least 5 builds where the only component that didn't change was the case. Unfortunately, I lost it in a house fire. So on to newer models it is :)

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding product

Pros: Sleek beautiful design, great ventilation, very light, OUTSTANDING no tools required! The list goes on.. I have probably built a dozen computers in my life and this is by far the best case I have ever worked with. It's worth every penny.

Cons: Fingerprint smudges.

Other Thoughts: Buy it!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent WHS Case

Pros: Holds up to nine hard drives.
Excellent cooling.
High quality fit and finish.
Quiet.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Built a new WHSv2 (vail) with this case and couldn't be happier.

ASUS M4A78-EM
Athlon II X4 640 3.0Ghz Quad
Crucial Ballistix 8GB (4x2gb)
PCPC 500W PSU (eight SATA connections)
2-EX322N expansion bays (total nine HD)
Areca 1220 RAID Card
1-Samsung 500GB short stroked-O/S
1-Samsung 2TB Client Backups and other stuff (2 partions)
2-Samsung 1TB HE (RAID) drives in RAID 1-Data
5-Samsung 2TB RAID 5-Movies (very fast on Areca), stream flawlessly.

Probably more money in a WHS then the average bear, but turned-out great. Idles at 130w, in hibernation 100w. Not bad for having nine HD's. Response time for access is top-notch. HD's run very cool. This thing is dead quiet.

Am a huge fan of Lian cases and this is no exception.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Sleeper

Pros: Super light weight, solid construction and actually has a usable tool-less system. I've seen a lot of cases that claim to be tool-less but in fact require a screw driver or something else. This case really only requires you have at least one finger a thumb. Plenty of room for my dual 5770 crossfire setup and even room for 3x. Power supply clasp is heavy duty and capable of handling large PS. The expansion card locking system is very cool and easy to use; and is one of the neatest features of the case. The stock fans are very quiet, I had planned on replacing them with better fans but found no need.

Cons: Hard drive mounting system is a bit tricky to get seated correctly, but once its in, its in. Not a problem, just not as seemless and awesome as all the other features.

Other Thoughts: I have seen a lot of cases, built a lot of computers and this case was everything I was looking for. No flash, no lights, no window, just pure function and a sleek look. Great layout and easy to work with. I really wanted a case that didn't look special, and this fit the bill, very plain at first glance, pop the hood and its a whole different story. Lian-Li hit another home run with this one.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Excellent design and build quality, well ventilated, easy cabling behind rear side panel, no LEDs, almost tool less.

Reviewers knock the PC-P50 (very gently) for several things: Only three 3.5” drive bays, non-removable mobo tray and too much emphasis on tool less design. IMHO, these points are all spurious. With the “sweet spot” for HDDs at 2TB and SSDs relatively inexpensive and much faster than RAID I don’t think there’s much necessity for more than 3 bays (I would not have said that two years ago before SSD). A removable mobo tray is difficult if you want to have underside access to the CPU backplate for cooler installation. It also doesn't make much sense when cabling is passing through and behind the mobo tray to have it removable.

Cons: Quite audible, side panels secured by thumb screws, very, very easy to scratch, not completely tool less, no 5.25” to 3.5” adapters.

Other Thoughts: Long-time user of a Lian Li aluminum case know aluminum is soft and the steel screws will, if used even infrequently, strip the holes within a couple of years (instantly if cross threaded). Several of the screw holes for the card expansions slots and for securing the side panels on my PC-60 were stripped within two years after purchase. Making an aluminum case tool less is sensible. It’s unfortunate that the side panels on the PC-P50 are secured with thumbscrews. I’m sure these will soon strip the holes (removal of side panels is first step of any work) so I’m not using them. It would have been nice if Lian Li had secured the panels with latches similar to that used to secure the PS.

Although this is certainly much more sensible than a gaming case (although that’s what it’s called on the box), it’s still far from quiet.

I had not intended to buy a new case until my next new build… but the NewEgg price was $40 less than elsewhere so I bought it on impulse and am not sorry I d

5 out of 5 eggsAlmost Perfect...

Pros: Dust filters over entire front panel, and under the bottom PSU air vent.

PSU bottom vent.

Negative airflow configuration right off the bat.

Moves a lot of air. As someone else said, you can feel the air being drawn in through the front panel grating.

Understated design. Entirely subjective, but I don't like carnival lights and flashy colors.

Fit & Finish is outstanding.

Best expansion card retention bracket system in existence.

Thick well tooled aluminum, premium quality case all around. Worth every penny.

Installation of hardware is a 95% toolless operation that isn't gimmicky, and actually works.

Wherever screws are used, there's isolation material to dampen out any vibrations.

Cases and PSUs are two things you should never skimp on. Lian-Li makes cases that are so easy to use, it spoils you for when you go back to SECC, ABS, and steel cases that aren't as well planned, and aren't half as easy to use.

There's so much more to this case, but I'm out

Cons: The 3.5" drive bay cage faces in towards the case, and with a PSU installed, it's impossible to take the hard drives out or put them back in. You'll need to take the front bezel and 3 inserts off (very very easy), unplug all the drives (annoying) and slide the whole assembly out the front. All in all, slightly annoying. I don't mind it however.

Most people would say the lack of removable motherboard tray is bad, but I like it, so NYEH.

I can't find much else to complain about, really...and believe me I've always got something to complain about.

Other Thoughts: My Workstation:

ASUS Crosshair IV Formula
Phenom II X6 1100T
Corsair XMS 1600MHz 8GB (4 x 2GB)
2x ATI Firepro V5800
Silverstone Strider Gold 1000W
OCZ Vertex 2 60GB SSD (boot)
Intel X25-M 120GB SSD (sample/VST/video file streaming)
2x Western Digital RE4 1TB (imaging backups & storage)
Noctua NH-C14
Lian Li PC-P50

Solid, high quality case to go with my work computer. Nice and elegant with no carnival lights, and its brushed aluminum finish. Plan on replacing all the fans in my case with Noctua's at some point so recording around it won't be an issue. The stock fans are almost silent, but they're also not particularly strong. Especially with video editing, I'll want all the extra cooling I can get, once all 6 cores are in 100% usage.
