Antec P380 Owners Club - Page 2

post #11 of 34
Just ordered it :-) I had the P180B and that was probably my favorite case for a very very long time. My first silent build. I paid a little extra for shipping ($25) so I will have it Friday so I can work on it this weekend. How are the temps in this case for CPU and GPU?

Nice setup. What kind of temps are you getting with CPU and GPU?

Well I got the case. I will work on it this weekend. I have to figure out how to route the front cables behind everything so they are not shown. Looks wise its a really really nice looking case. I think that did disappoint me was the quality of the steel used. Its very very thin. This case is a full tower, yet is lighter than my fractal R5 which is only a mid tower.

Thats because it is mostly aluminum, this is a lighter material than steel smile.gif

OK got mine up and running. Very quiet case for sure. I like it a lot. 1 thing that does bother me is the rubber grommets. They are very flimsy and barely stay in. I was always having to put them back in after routing cables threw them after they got pulled out. They should have used some glue to keep them in place like other case makers do. I'd give the case a B+

I removed all the drive bays for better air flow. I also changed the fans to Fractal Design GP12 and GP14 fans, their is nothing wrong with the Antec ones they are very quiet but they do not push any real amounts of air. Couple of things though. The case is has very very thin metal. It bends like butter. And to remove anything takes like a ton of screws to be removed to do anything. So from a modding stand point this case is not very modder friendly.

Okay, so, this is the state of cooling thus far.






And as you can see, there are...problems. Not major, "holy crap that's awful" problems, but y'know. Things I, and likely, you, don't like.

SO, I present to you, the reader, my list of things to be fixed.

1. SHORTEN THOSE HOSES FOR THE LOVE OF.. Okay, look. Rookie mistake. I didn't have a proper hose cutter at the time so I used semi-sharp scissors and decided to re-do when I got back from the snow. Welp, here I am. And I'm also here with an XSPC 25mm razor blade hose cutter. $6 well spent in my opinion.

2. Join the pump and reservoir in Holy Matrimony. Haha, I kid, I kid. But, if you can see it, they are joined by short piece of hose and two compression fittings. I bought a G-1/4 Rotary Fitting (M-M obviously) and, because of the pumps inlet design and the multiple ports on the housing of the res, I can join them using one fitting, meaning the pump will have a direct water feed straight from the res, and the res will be positioned above the pump! (If you have done research, you know, it's a good thing.)

3. Put the GPU under water. Okay, so this isn't a major thing, but I have a second KPE on the way with a water block and once I know if it's Acetal or Copper, I know what I'l have to buy for the one I have now.

4. Sleeved PSU cables, gonna skimp and buy them pre-done, really cannot be bothered doing them myself.

5. Once I have my GPU(s) under water, I'll be selling my XTX-360 and buying a couple PE-360 rads and running push-pull on both. As well as a Liang D5 pump (EK X-RES 140).

6. Noctua fans. This case has good, but not great airflow. Static pressure is needed.

Other than that, fairly happy so far.

We'reeeeee UPDATED! Sort of!

All nice and together again. :)

Pipes are trimmed and the M-M G-1/4 fitting mated the pump and res perfectly, just as expected. Looking neater, still needs some more refinement which is due when I pick up my GPU block (if I can even find one..), second rad and some fittings.
