Lian Li launches ARMORSUIT PC-P50R Gaming Mid Tower Chassis

Feature Packed RED Aluminum Chassis

5 May 2009, Keelung, Taiwan – Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd has launched the ARMORSUIT SERIES PC-P50R Mid Tower chassis ideal for gaming systems. The hair-line brushed all aluminum chassis features advanced thermal dynamics, using one fan on the front (1x 120mm@1200RPM), plus dual vibration reduced top mounted fans (2x 140mm@1000RPM) and one rear 120mm@1500RPM extraction fan. The 8x PCI expansion slots enable CrossFireX and Tri-SLI graphic card setups. The chassis front face has 9x 5.25”ODD bays which have filters that are washable. The front panel clips off easily and conveniently. The entire chassis is designed for tool-less implementation, so installing your hardware and getting your system up and running is extremely quick and easy. The dimensions stand at 210x490x490mm (W, H, D). The top and front panels are clipped via special plastic kits which reduce metal on metal contact wear as well as prevent vibration. The red parts are individually anodized before assembly to ensure a quality look and feel.

Complete Tool-Less Design
The first of its kind unique Power Supply Bracket allows the PSU to be secured using only the tool-less clasp which is ideal to hold the PSU securely without the need for securing screws. The ODD 5.25” bays have a patented mounting bar which secures your optical drives safely and securely. The PCI brackets made of solid aluminum have a special tool-less clip to secure your graphics and daughter cards with the utmost of ease. Similarly the HDD drives are secured in a tool-less bracket and mounted with rubber grommet struts to prevent movement and vibration from today’s fast moving and highly specialized HDD components. The front panel and top panel are easily detachable for access to fans and air filters. The ARMORSUIT PC-P50R chassis is imbued with all the functional and user friendly design aspects users have come to expect in a Lian Li case.

Thermal features
Lian Li engineers have optimized the airflow to enter from the front mounted fans, directly cooling the HDD’s and ODD’s and thereafter refreshing the CPU region. The hot air generated by the CPU and GPU is directly extracted via the rear 120mm Fan and the dual top mounted fans. Both top mounted fans have special vibration free kits, which allow for silent operation as well as easy and safe removal of the fans should you wish to do so. The volume of airflow is more than sufficient to keep your gaming rig cool and conveniently silent.

General features
The chassis supports 9x 5.25” Optical drive bays and 3 additional internal 3.5” bays for HDD’s in an anti-vibration movable cage. Each HDD has its own clip in bracket. The ARMORSUIT PC-P50R case is for Micro-ATX or ATX motherboards and has 8 PCI expansion slots, which are well ventilated with special vented brackets when not in use. The top panel is removable with the multimedia I/O ports on the top panel consisting of 2x USB2.0 as well as HD+AC97 Audio. The PSU has an advanced flame-retardant vent built into the bottom of the chassis. This uniquely designed vent prevents the possibility of heat and flames from exiting your case via the vent should something catastrophic like a short circuit occur to your PSU or other equipment inside.

Traditional Durability
The classical stylish functional design is the Lian Li goal. The essence of Lian Li products is the craftsmanship of the engineering. Intrinsic to the workmanship and quality is the customization which includes a whole host of optional extras that can be purchased to add more features to an already feature rich product.

WOW! that's a lot of red! I bet that thing would like GREAT with a MB installed in there. I really like the extra large cutout on the MB tray. That should make it a lot easier to swap out brackets for Core i7 heat sinks. The 1 short coming for my Element S is that this cutout is too small on it. Also the 8 expansion slots out back seems to be the new trendy thing to do. I wasn't aware that there was even a problem fiting 3x SLI? No board comes to mind that uses the bottom slot as PCI-Express. 2nd to last.. but not last...

Overall good looking case I don't like a lot of the internal features tho.

I have to say this by far has got to be my favorite stock case to date. I love all the little extras. Don't get me wrong I love to do my own mod work but if you want a stock case with alls the options and room that you need this case has got to be it. You could easily put 3 rads in this sytem. a dual at the top a single off the back and a dual off the front. Where you would put the pumps is a different story but I really like this case. The look of it is awesome. Not to flashy but at the same time looks like a eye catcher. Wonder how much this bad boy will cost. Probably around $350.

That's what I plan to do with my new case, I need to route my cables through the back of the mobo.

I feel like this case is the opposite of what Lian Li usually makes...but you have to admire the fact that they are releasing new cases like crazy.  I do like the features though.

Oh wow. I like this case. Picture this with a Foxconn bloodrage and a red watercooling loop.

hmm i like where your going with this Bob but I would have to disagree with the red tubing or coolant. The idea is to make it stand out so I think Black tubing would look sick in this case with the MB you mentioned. basicly with the red powder coat inside anything you want to stand out I think should be in black. I think that MB's pcb is black with red highlights on it(i.e pci slots and such) so maybe some red memory like the new corsair dominator kits would look sick on it to. Oh the things I could do with this caseDevil
