Antec 900 or P180? - Page 3

post #21 of 60
get the p180/182. the p182 has better cable management though and slots for wiring behind the mobo. it has good airflow and its also nearly silent even with the fans on medium.

the 900 looks cool and all but i like quiet so went with the p180. i know the fans will can get loud on the 900 and dust also gets blown in there with all those fans.

p182 ftw

the 900 is surprisingly compact. it might be a little wider than some cases, but it's actually kind of short for a mid tower. i think it's the perfect size.

and you people talking like the 900 is noisy just don't know. my computer is the quietest computer i've ever seen in person. you just have to make sure you buy a quiet heatsink and PSU to go with it.

well, i just bought a p182 at directcanada.com. i like my 900 a lot, but i can't stand the noise anymore.

not that it's THAT noisy, but i do sleep with my rig 5 feet from my head, so i need some quiet time.

you're right, it's pretty quiet, but if you set the fan a the higher speed, noise rise too.

Get the Antec 900 if you want good cooling. Get an Antec P180/180B/182/182 SE if you want silence.

I have an Antec P180B with 4 Scythe SFF21D Fans and 2 Antec TriCools on my Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme.
I can't even hear my fans, which is exactly what I wanted, but I did not sacrifice good airflow.

The SE has a painted interior, chrome finish on the outside, a usb wire flashlight to light the interior while working in it...and i think that's it.

the flashlight is a stupid gimmick, the that black interior is awesome.

i remember the flashlight now. i think it's a good idea. that way you don't have to hold it in your mouth when you need it.

one thing i'd like to see, is the fan controllers outside on the case. i konw they did it on a new case, i don't remember which one. i think it's the one with the 2 psu's.

anyway, can't wait to have my new case
