5 out of 5 eggsI enjoy Lian-Li cases

Pros: I enjoyed working with this particular case, I enjoy the removable m/b tray, tool less psu holder, and tool less gpu holder as well very sturdy. Great air flow but with great air flow comes great flow of dust but that's a given for any case with good air flow.

Cons: Unfortunately there's no such thing as a perfect case, this particular one doesn't give a very good support for those looking to do water cooling, and I wish this case had more tool less features like previous cases, and a bit of sound dampening material but if all this was included than price would go sky higher than what it already is.

Other Thoughts: This has been my 3rd lian li case and I gotta say they've improved much with each one they dish out, one point I love of these cases are there sheer blank state they come for anyone to customize them and great for modding up the wazoo. With the P80N I took two of the hdd cages out to improve airflow and give me 4x 5.25' bays to have a blu-ray drive and 3x DVD drives and 2x 5.25' to install a reservoir for my water cooling set up.

4 out of 5 eggsThe PC-P80N is one great case, but does have some flaws that bug me...

Pros: - Very light compare to other clunky, steel, plastic cases.
- Lots of room to work with, after all, it is a HTPX case.
- All fans are included with the case (5 'quiet' 140mm fans + 1 120mm in the rear)
- Aluminum structure
- Both USB 3.0 (4) front ports are motherboard internal headers, not standard USB 3.0 cables you see with other cases.
- Dust filters included in both PSU and front panel
- Removable motherboard tray
- Mostly tool-less to install hardware.
- I/O ports have a cover, so dust won't get in there. Good thinking Lian Li.

Cons: Maybe I'm just picky with cases but there are some pretty noticeable flaws with this case:

- Front panel does not close properly; someone else mentioned this in another review, my case has the same problem. Front panel does not close properly, and because of that, there is some vibration that you can hear.

- Power Supply air ducts are too far apart. I have a standard sized Power Supply (SeaSonic X750), the fan, if flipped upside down, does not even reach the air ducts from the case. I'm thinking this was designed for very long power supplies. Also the tool-less clamp on that is marketed for the PSU, as "anti-vibration", is not true; you will hear some small amount of vibrating.

- Dust magnet/fingerprint magnet - I've also noticed that this case picks up a lot of dust. Within 2-3 days, the dust filter is already clogged with dust. Also since the case is aluminum, expect a huge trail of fingerprints. I recommend you getting an over-the-counter metal polish to clear the prints of

Other Thoughts: Not really a negatives just pointing some more stuff out:

- Bottom hard drive cage unusable? I'm not too sure of this, but I don't think you are able to use the bottom hard drive cage, unless you have a 2.5 SSD. You can't even open the door, unlike the other 2 HD cages. I tried to install a 3.5 drive but I don't think you are able, unless I'm missing something.


- Reset button is way too small.

- Documentation could be better - If you want to change the front panel to open the opposite way, you have to go to Lian Li's main site and download the manual.

Overall, I give this case a solid 4 eggs, mainly because of the fact it is comes with all 6 fans, somewhat quiet, and its solid aluminum structure is what makes it perfect for me. I was tired of those cheap, steel gimmick cases marketed by other manufacturers, and really wanted something different. The PC-P80N is a unique case like its predecessor, and well worth it.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive

Pros: This very massive case has many features and future-proofing capabilities. I bought this case for the sr-2 because at the time it was the one of the very few that supported it. Besides, it looked better than most of the other cases. I really didn't want to bother with ordering mountain mods cube cases.
PROS:
+ Supports HPTX.
+ 11 PCI-E bays.
+ Black. (That's just me)
+ Focus on high quality case rather than the fans to keep the price down.
+ 4 x USB 3.0 and e-sata.
+ So many bays. Technically has 12 x 5.25"
+ Additional parts to help with cable management.
+ 3 x 140mm front fans for lots of air intake.
+ Case has a 3 x 3pin to 1 x 3pin power-board on the front of the case to reduce wires into the case.
+ Very sturdy.
+ Many anti-vibration/noise features on the case.
+ Plenty of space for anything and everything.
+ Long card support beam.
+ Side panels and front door are both lockable.

Cons: There was only one thing that actually bugged me. The top of the case had plenty of room for more fans. It used 140mm instead of 120mm. Rads are commonly found in the 120mm format.
- Top has 2 x 140mm instead of 3 x 120mm.
- Less watercooling orientated. Hell, you can't even fit a H-80 rad on the 120mm slot.
- Not very detailed specs or instructions. I had to ask about the fan controller wattage.

Don't complain about it not having LED's. The fans are already really low power, so just buy your own LED/nonLED fans.

I never really understood why the 5.25" to 3.5" HDD bays had openable doors on the front. Maybe it's so you can use the 3.5 bays if you have some card readers or something (even though the instructions say it's for Hard Drives). It's just kinda weird, but the whole part looks like it was very expensive and raised the price of the case more than it should.

Other Thoughts: As I stated before, Lian Li focuses on the case rather than the parts that come with it. Which is fine because I am sure most people have watercooling or high end aftermarket fans in mind. I went ahead and bought Aerocool Sharkfans for the front, Akasa Vipers for the top, and a Corsair High Performance fan for the back. With these on, the case has lots of air moving through the case.

Although I didn't think about it at the time, I should of gotten high static pressure fans for the front because of the steel mesh on the front AND on the case reduce the airflow significantly.

I did some research and it is very important to keep in mind: the fan controller included with the case has two 3pin ports that handle 6w per channel.

It is a very good case, but it is a case with more air cooling and SR-2 on mind rather than a high end watercooled gaming computer.

3 out of 5 eggsToo many corners cut

Pros: Fantastic lay out, could be perfect if abit more consideration was given to internal radiator support
-Love the top fan pannel
-Design improvment on my PC-80
-Overpriced due to cut corners by lian li (see cons)

Cons: 1st of all Quality Control is getting much worse at Lian li, I had bubbly paint on the bottom of the front door
2. No LED fans , for case of this cost, should come with LED fans with a switch next to fan speed controller to turn LEDs on and off
3.Poor watercooling options , The top rad has to be 30mm or less thinckness
4.Ended up cutting a 140x2 in the floor (should come as a standard cut out for a case of this cost
5.Got the case powder coated due to botched lian li paint

With so many cases with fantastic watercooling options like the 800D, Lian Li have to provide the same service to there highest end cases at a minimum, puting two watercooling grommets on the back and calling it a day is NOT WATERCOOLING READY!
IF better radiator support out of the box was available (at least two rads in a case this size, it would be worth every $$) ... I dont mind spending this amount of money , if A-Quality is flawless (PC-80 was) B- I dont need to MOD it for what should be simple on Lian

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This case is both massive and simple. At first I was skeptical of the clamps for the PCI(e) hardware but they work extremely well. There are tapped holes for screws should you choose not to use them. The front door, if it is not locked, is held closed by a stainless steel ball and detent rather than plastic latches. Although there is a slightly larger gap in the door if it is not locked, I still cannot feel any escaped airflow. Even the door to the IO panel is tensioned by steel leaf-springs.

Cable organization is very easy with numerous rubber grommets for routing options. The grommets can be displaced quite easily when pulling cables and the edges of the aluminum are fairly sharp; obviously, you need to pay attention to what you are doing here.

All hard drives are removed from the front of the case as opposed to through the video card.

The dust filters clearly help (I live in the midwest...)

Cons: A static shock on the IO panel caused a system crash. See "other thoughts."

The motherboard is so far from the PSU that you will need a ~22" CPU power chord and maybe longer if you plan to route it behind the motherboard panel. If your CPU connector is about this length it may be worth it to order a short extension with this case.

Other Thoughts: I almost complained but decided to investigate before I looked like an idiot. The top panel EASILY pops loose. Pulling a USB will remove the top panel with it. Although, I found two fasteners through the ceiling just inside of the front panel fixes this. That was probably mentioned in the instructions that I didn't read. The other issue I am *hoping* this fixed is the aforementioned static shock that caused a crash by improving the ground connection. Unfortunately I will not, only for science, subject my motherboard to repeated static shocks just to report it here.

This case is a fantastic alternative to the "Tom Cruises" of cases (insecure and attention-loving cases covered in flashy LED lights), as it is more akin to the massive Vegas casino bouncer standing with arms crossed, conveying their point without speaking a word.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Exactly what i have come to expect from Lian Li,good craftmanship,and a simple efficient design.

I build and modify many system's and lian li come's as close to perfect for fit and finish as you can get and is alway's a pleasure to work with.

Cons: I only have one con,No key for the front cover lock.

I would recomend lian li to tape the end's of the accessory box closed.

5 out of 5 eggsLian-Li QC needs work

Pros: My P80N arrived today. Of all the Lian-Li cases I worked with over the years I expect the same level of Lian-Li quality, the P80NB is no different.

Cons: The box arrived with holes punched in on 2 sides, luckily when I took the case out for examination the case was OK, still in perfect condition.

When I shook the case I heard a lot of things moving inside, and I thought immediately, this must be a used or returned item. But it was not, just poor Lian-Li QC. The front panel cables where not tied down and it ended up leaving multiple black rubber streaks on the interior floor of the case (right next to the PSU vent). Tried scrubbing it with hot water, didn't work then used nail polish remover, stain still there, oh well.

Other Thoughts: Not 100% perfect. Lian-Li is starting to skimp on QC and packaging. The 2 styrofoam pieces have a rectangular cutout in the middle, if anything where to punch through the box it would come in contact with the case directly. Then again that would probably add to cost.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: 5 intake and exhaust fans are on a single speed control
completely tool less for everything except the fans
comes with a complete kit of screws, converters, cables, ties and a case to hold everything in.
Easy to access front ports
The cable management was very nice, plenty of space and well placed and planned.

Cons: Front panel does not close properly, allowing airflow to escape from the sides.
replacing front fans was difficult because of the placement of the control Bord in a tiny cramped pocket at the bottom.
Rear exhaust fan has no options to place it into the fan control system.
Very little documentation.

Other Thoughts: Built custom rigs for 16 years, and this has to be the best case I have ever worked with. Every time I needed a specific screw, converter or extender, I giggled like a school girl when it was already included with the case.

All the extra work space made setting up a system in this case very easy to do, and making corrections and additions was a breeze.

5 out of 5 eggsI'm Back

Pros: Well it's time for the Pro's and there are several. the few noted "bobos" mentioned in my first note have been worked except the door catch ball have been worked out at no cost and little time. Haven't got that one figured out yet.
The case is a work of art, as far as its design allows.. I like the plastic wahers on the screws that retain the side covers. The video board bridge holds my Asus Matrix GTX 580 from sagging. The P8Z68 Deluxe makes great use of the rubber covered pass throughs. It handles the cables quite well, placement was no problem. Filters are much better that my previous A71F. It's quite for a large case with 9 fans, you know it's there, but its not objectionable.

Cons: Lian Li Customer Service is still vacant.
Gee's you know if they had a real Customer Service and took care of the little issues, they couldn't be beat!
