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.
Lian Li uses the best “Made in Taiwan” high quality aluminum panel for all Lian Li chassis. The solid main chassis was folded with 1.5mm thick aluminum sheeting to make a more sturdy structure which has less vibration. The removable front and top panels are joined with specialized plastic kits that prevent the metal parts from touching each other, ultimately reducing noise create d by fans and HDD vibration.
The ARMORSUIT PC-P50 is equipped with large cooling fans, with low RPM, which still provide enough air flow to cool down the hardware adequately. The front 120mm intakes fan runs at 1200RPM. The top two silent 140mm ball-bearing fans exhaust the hot air out at 1000RPM, and the rear 120mm fan extracts the hot air out at 1500RPM.
The fans on the top panel are mounted with Lian Li’s new anti-vibration fan mounting system; the rubber ring grommet absorbs the vibration, keeping the case silent.
The new 5.25” bay tool-less mounting incorporates a mounting bar equipped with rubber padding. After closing the mounting bar, the rubber pad pushes and holds the 5.25” device in position to both secure and absorb vibration from the device.
Lian Li designers spent months to upgrade Lian Li’s HDD cage; the new HDD cage also has rubber suspension. The buckle hold the HDD in place, and then also absorb and reduce vibrations.
The aluminum PCI tool-less mounting module is equipped with a rubber pad which can hold the graphics card firmly while closing the gap found in the PCI bracket and PCI slot to reduce noise from escaping air and furthermore reduce vibrations.
The Power Supply has rubber pads for both insulation and support. The mounting clip is also aligned with rubber to reduce vibrations but also and also secure the PSU without scratching the painted surface.
ARMORSUIT PC-P50 inputs cold air by the 120mm intake fan, it can be reposition by adjust the HDD cage. There are also vents on the 5.25” bezels, allow cold air to enter the case to cool the system down
The two 140mm fans on the top cover and the 120mm fan at the rear exhaust the hot air out from the system. The fans cover the whole motherboard, and they can remove the heat fast.
The rear 120mm exhaust fan just next to the CPU, it can remove the hot air out fast and silently.
There are vents on the PCI slots, provids extra cooling to graphics card.
The power supply unit is at the bottom of the case. It can draw in cold air directly through the vent below the power supply unit. This cooler, fresh air will keep your PSU components more cool and stable and thus extend the PSU lifecycle.
ARMORSUIT PC-P50 supports liquid cooling system, the two holes at the rear of the case allows water tubes to pass through, and the rubber cover can protect the tubes away from cutting.
User Friendly Design
2009 has seen an all-new tool-less design from Lian Li aluminum chassis. To do this required a great many innovative patents to be filed worldwide. The ideas will make installing and maintenance much easier. For example when installing the 5.25” optical drive, just slide the drive into the 5.25” bay, and close the mounting bar to secure the optical drive, as simple as that.
The installation of the hard disk is very easy, and tool-less. Place the hard disk into the aluminum cage, and close the clip to secure the hard disk.(2.5" HDD install feasible), Slide the hard disk within the cage into the special hard disk rack with the rubber suspension grommet.
To install PCI add-on cards require no tools at all. Simply open the aluminum arm of the tool-less PCI add-on card holder, insert the add-on card to the motherboard slots, and close the aluminum arm to hold the add-on card in position. The additional rubber padding on the aluminum arm assists in gripping the card bracket and securing it firmly.
To install PSU require no tools. Simply open the aluminum PSU holder, insert the PSU in position, also can turn PSU's fans up or down to suit your need, then close the aluminum PSU holder.
The fans on the top panel are mounted with special screws with rubber ring suspension grommets. These allow easy access and removal of the fan for cleaning or service.
The intake fans are aligned with inlet holes on the bezels. These are equipped with air filters to stop the dust and keep the internals dust free and clean.
There is an air filter at the base of the case to stop dust from entering the case. The filter is washable. The vents are specially designed to retard heat and fire crossover should a short circuit cause sparks and excessive heat within your system. This feature is designed to prevent the problem from spreading outside your case should the unlikely event occur with your components.

Just finished putting my build together. I have been eyeballing this case for a while now. Since I got a Lian-Li case for a friend's build and loved his so much, I had to get one too. The cable management system was simple. I normally hate tool-less designs but this one actually works well. The PSU lock is pretty sweet, the 5.25 bay locks work great, the expansion port locks didn't get in the way of my dual slot GPU cooler. All worked well. The fans slide on and off easily. Even came with thumb screws for mounting the motherboard. Another thing I like are all the sound dampening materials they use. Rubber grommets and pads keep the noise down. I picked this case because I will eventually use it for a NAS file server/caching proxy. I needed a case with enough 5.25 bays so I could throw in a couple hot swap racks. Once I can afford a RAID card and a couple more 2TB hard drives, I'll be in business.
Love this case for it's looks and tool-less design that actually works and really well.
My biggest complaint is the size and/or placement of the hole in the motherboard for accessing the CPU backplate. This was a big want for me as I didn't want to have to remove my motherboard to change CPU heatsink. Well, with my Rampage III I had to throw that idea out the window when I put in my Coolit ECO. I wonder if this is a problem for all LGA1366?
