Time to start an Antec p180-182 thread? :) - Page 2

post #11 of 17
When I first built my sig rig in 2006, I used a P180. I was very happy with it, until the front door warped from temperature changes.

My dad has the P180 now; the warping is less pronounced now, as his rig (which I built for him) is in a more thermally-stable environment than my bedroom, but it still doesn't close perfectly flush as it used to. The warping issue, I've heard, was addressed by Antec, which is good news for newer revisions of the P180.

I like its looks, but it wasn't the easiest case to work inside in.

...I want it lol

EDIT: I'm not kidding, I've been looking into getting another P180 to mod the crap out of. This just might be the ticket

P180 FTW. there is actually a lot you can do with this case. i have some ideas that eventually i would like to get going, but finding time now is hard, with a new job and all. i have a thread in my sig about cable management and a few basic mods that can be done. but there are a few here that have some awesome water cooled p180's

I ordered a P180 and got a P180 case WITH a P182 guts!

Has anyone else received one of those?

I was also wondering... How many people use the Big Typhoon in the P180 and P182's?

I just got a P180 as well. Nowadays, all the P cases come with the same guts. The only differences appear to be the outside finish.

P180 Silver
P180b Black
P182 Gunmetal?
P182se Silver

As for fitting a Big Typhoon, I have no personal experience, but a quick search tells us people have done it.

Good luck.
