I have the 182 and think it is absoulute beautiful. If you aren't in to all the flashiness of having a side panel window and want really well done cable management, then the 182 is a great choice. There is plenty of room, and it's almost inaudible when the fans are on low. I love mine.

Thanks guys,
I dunno, im just wondering how that little sliding thing between the PSU and the rest of the case is,
and How the premade Cable Management holes are.
Are they situated well?

And i was wondering how loud it is with everything on low but thats been answered


Also, i was wondering about what peple thing between the 3 cases i have a choice between, and why one or the other is better

i see what you are saying the cable management holes are kinda nice i think because it keeps everything inside your case and organized too. Right now for me the power supply fan is on low and it is a tight fit, i am not going to lie it took me a good chuck of time to get my hard drive and all its cords on the bottom all routed through the hole, but once you do it looks really nice and it is very tight and efficient (i have a ide and sata hard drive on the bottom bracket).

Ya, i dont mind if it takes a while, im not expecting it to be of amazing quality, its $150 so i expect it to be good, but not amazing.
Whats a little hardship when in the end you get an amazing case?
Thanks for your input


Oh and one more question,
How do u guys like the looks of the GunMetal vs The Mirror Finish one?

The only difference is the SE has a polished stainless steel mirror finish on the outside.

P182 Normal Edition (sorry I dont have a pic before I windowed it)



P182 Special Edition (again, I dont have a pic before windowing)

If you want to see how well the cable management works, check out my gallery. I'm pretty sure I've got all my cable pictures up in it. I have a lot of other stuff in that case mind you, but if you look, most of the cables just kinda come out of nowhere. I like being able to have my 24pin connector go up the backside of the case, as well as my front panel connectors. I'm sure if you have smaller and less cards than I do your cables can look even better.

Edit - I'd go with the regular gunmetal, last I checked the SE cost more and I know that I would muck it up with fingerprints.
