Antec P180/P182 Cable Mod Pictorial - Page 7

in all actuality, drilling was actually quiet easy. i just used a one inch bi metal hole saw made by Lenox. you can get one at lowes for like $7 or $8. just make sure you dont try and press to hard or it will stop the hole saw from spinning. once you get one hole any other will be much easier. also dont worry about cleaning up the hole you drill out. well you can but if you plan on using rubber grommets, those will cover it right up. feel free to shoot me a PM with any other questions though.


edit: BTW check out my other thread with more pics, The Evolution of My P180.

spacegoast,

I want to ask you something (I'm struggling to type with my left index finger because I just cut myself trying to rearrange the cables inside my P182.).

At the bottom of the case is a fan. I removed it and was hoping I can put it in the bottom front so it blows directly at the bottom HDD cage. But first I think I need to remove the square bracket in front of the lower HDD cage. How do you remove it? I took your picture and labeled the square bracket that I want to remove with a red square. What size fan is in that picture when you took it?

Also, I have two psu's: an Antec NeoHE 550W modular and an OCZ StealthXStream OCZ600SXS 600W. Both power supplies have a short 8-pin power connector for the cpu, which is located on the top left of the Abit IP35 Pro board that I am using. I don't think there's any way to route this cpu power cable to the back. Is there an extension cord of some kind that I can buy or do I have to run it over top of the board?

Yes you can buy an extension for your 8-pin power cable. as for removing that square bracket. here is a good shot of mine:

i removed the square bracket from the lower chamber. i was able to just pop the rivets out with a flathead screw driver. it was very easy.


edit: *warning* be advised that, anyone who removes the lower square bracket will not be able to screw in the lower HDD cage, which shouldnt be a big deal for most.

Hey man, that looks really cool.
i have the P190 case and i wana mod it and i hav a questions.
when u were painting ur case u removed everything, how did u take out the front panel? and how hard was it?

and please send some more pics man.

thanks.

There are 6 clips (3 on each side) that hold on the front panel. The clips go straight through the front of the case. Just pop them off, you might need something to pry a couple of them off like a regular screwdriver. And don't forget to unscrew the ground cable, which is in the middle chamber.

As ImmortalKenny pointed, there are 3 clips on both sides just behind the front panel. You can either push them in by hand (well finger) or use a flathead screw driver. I just use my finger though, as it is not very hard to remove. After you pop them all out you can pull the whole front panel off, just be careful with the front panel wires, as those have to come out as well.


edit: here is a good shot of them, i circled 2 of them.


there are 2 more on the left side and 2 more above, not shown in the photo.

I ahd some real hassle getting my P182 to look tidy and just gave up due to time constraints. I enev broke the speed controller on one of my fans in the process. I've lost my iron, too, so I can't solder the conenction back together. Bugger.

I'll get some pics of before and after.

Ya I felt the same way at first and just wanted to leave it as it was. But I just got this urge to do something to it, anything. Eventually, I got it to where I wanted it. Now I havent updated my pics recently and I still havent even taken any shots with my Asus P5E in. Looks a mess right now, so I may wait till the end of summer. Its too hot here anyway. Show us some pics though

I don't understand why you do all this? Did you put a window in the side panel?
