Case Antec 900 vs Antec P182 vs others

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a quiet case that has good airflow for this sytem:

Q6600 G0 overclocked (3.2-3.6)
TRUE w/Scythe Slipstream
P5K-E WiFi/AP
8800GTS G92/8800GT (not sure yet)
2GB memory

I was really considering the P182 because of the silence. I need something quiet. I was also looking at the NZXT Hush case. My next though was the Antec 900. Is the 900 quiet enough? How bad is the dust problem? Should I just stick with the P182 even though it is more expensive, or should I go with one of the others?

I've got a Lian-Li PC-60 aluminum case. Its pretty durable so that I can upgrade it for years to come.

Go with the P182, i had a 900 before it and the DUST was pathetic and the temps where good, With my P182 its so sleek looks so sexy HARDLY ANY DUST AT ALL, that is as long as you keep the filters clean, its also very silent and i get near enough the same temps other than, 1c - 2c id go for the P182 from my experience its brilliant ill get you some pics if you like, ill post them in about 5 minutes

Right now my CPU is at: Core#1 - 30 : Core#2 - 30 thats idle with MSN, Xfire, Logitech Programs, Sound Applications, Firefox, Fraps, Everest and various other tasks all together 50 Processes

Sure, would love some pix. Where can I get a P182 for a decent price? Newegg is too expensive.

I was going to say ZZF, but they're up in price again. I bought one for my little bro last week and paid $99 + shipping. It's in my office but I haven't opened it yet; I'm thinking of getting one for myself, the clean lines are very nice to my eyes.

If you do get the P182 make sure you buy more fans because airflow is no where comparable to the 900 with out them. The dust isn't too bad in the 900, depends on how dust free your environment is, i have wood floors so most of the dust settles on that instead of being stuck in carpet. I Keep my Comp off the ground as well.

Actually, i think im gonna start a Comp off the Ground CLub.

lol.

My 900 is a dust magnet. I will be introducing some fan filters on my next clean out

Cool. Thanks.
post #10 of 18
I will also suggest the P182. I recently moved my rig into this guy, and I am very impressed by the cable management. I would also recommend switching all of the fans for s-flexes, including an additional one for the middle harddrive cage, it will be so quiet the loudest component will be your my HD and videocard. And did I mention that the P182 is soooooo sexy? The 900 can't even compare. The only downside of the P182 is the weight, but who cares? it's a desktop.
