Lian Li PC-P80 ATI Spider Edition Case
If there's just one thing that Benchmark Reviews has seen a lot of, it would be computer cases. Among the most beautiful cases in the world, most come from only one manufacturer: Lian Li. In the past year we gave been very fortunate to have tested the Lian Li PC-B20A, PC-B25B, and even the PC-B58 which was never put into full production.
After the era of beige box computing, Lian Li reigned supreme with finely crafted aluminum chassis products in both black and silver. So image my surprise when I witnessed a clear separation from their long-held tradition with the introduction of an ATI Spider themed anodized red aluminum full-tower computer case named PC-P80 ATi Spider Edition.
Based off of their ArmorSuit PC-P80 Gaming Towerdesign, the new PC-P80 ATi Spider edition appears to be exactly what AMD/ATI needs these days: a winning design. While everyone seems to be trumpeting the recent financial losses and spread rumor of impending doom for AMD, it's great to see one manufacturer at the top of their game give another its due credit.
Not that this will change anything for AMD, but the Lian Li ArmorSuit PC-P80 ATI Spider Edition Full Tower ATX Computer Case sure can't hurt. And if the early AMD Spider platform tests continue to hold course, it might not be so surprising to have the new Phenom running for team red instead of team blue for once. Look for both Lian Li and AMD/ATi to offer big surprises this year - as if the PC-P80 ATI Spider Edition chassis wasn't enough.
