lian li pc-p80 armosuit

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey

I am new to the custom pc building game, i had previously built a antec 1200 but had not done any mods to it, im now embarking on a new build and any easy mods or any pointers with what i should do or where i should start. I don't want to go too crazy with this build just some nice basic mods to start.
I have a lian li pc-p80 armosuit case which i would like to do some bisic modding to for better cooling and looks, will be upgrading the mobo/cpu, ram maybe ram cooler, sealed cpu cooler like h70, just the basics for now and later on it will be graphics,psu and so on.

any help or ideas would be absolutely awesome as i have no idea where to start lol

Thanks guys

Honestly, theres not much really to do with the case. You can try cutting some fan holes in the top for better ventilation and maybe a window if you want, but there's not that much potential for modding. Personally, I would be scared to cut into a lian-li, but prove me wrong haha.

I used to own this case, it is a fantastic case once modded. I would say the best mod you could do is if you wanted to go for a full water cooling loop(which you should with a case that awesome) is to cut 3 holes in the bottom of the case to fit a 120x3 rad in the bottom, I think it might even be able to fit 120x4 if you take the bottom hard drive cage out.

Good luck! biggrin.gif
