Lian Li PC-P80N Full Tower Chassis Review

The Lian Li PC-P80N Full Tower Chassis




The PC-P80N comes with a bold, protruding front door. With the door being around two foot tall, the horizontal bands of alternating mesh and aluminum, it seems to break up what could have been a lot of flat brushed aluminum.




Midway down the right side you will find the lock for the front door. At this point it will stay locked up, as the keys are shipped inside the chassis.




The top of the chassis has…umm…a Mohawk? Talking with a few of my buddies, I think James described it best as a Mohawk and I'm going with that for now. The front angled section allows Lian Li room for the name badge on the Front I/O cover and the reset and power buttons above it.




Lifting the plate with the Lian Li name on it, it exposes the front I/O panel. Here you get e-SATA connectivity on the left, four USB 3.0 ports (motherboard allowing), and the HD Audio jacks at the right. Reason I say "motherboard allowing" is that not all boards support USB 3.0 inside and out, but Lian Li has those users covered too.




On the left side of the chassis there isn't a lot to talk about with the large expanse of brushed aluminum of the actual door panel. What is notable are the louvers on the side of the Mohawk, and the large plastic case feet that keep the chassis at a good height off the floor.




The rear of the chassis has two holes for the included USB 3.0 cables to get to the rear I/O, while the other pair is for water cooling. The 120mm exhaust fan is covered with a wire grill to allow maximum flow. Below the fan are eleven, yes eleven, expansion slots just above the floor mounted power supply mounting plate.




These doors are large and use the conventional, unscrew and slide to the rear of the chassis, for removal. One more image to discuss and I will get these out of the way so we can get a look at the inside.




Under the PC-P80N you will find a large ventilated area, louvers if you will, that get stamped into the aluminum, and you can see there is an accompanying dust filter. As you can see the large feet get placed to the outermost corners to maximize the stability of this tall, heavy tower.
