AGREED...I was going to say the P180/P182 is a good choice. You can find on here many mods with water cooling with those cases..

From what I can tell, the Antec 900 is an expensive Tempest. Sure NZXT copied Antec, but most everything I've read says the case is on par, if not better. If I can find a great deal on the P182 or save a little more money on other components, I'll get it. If not, I'll probably wind up getting the Tempest.

Well, I've decided I'll be getting a Tempest to house my rig. Nothing against the P182 but the Tempest is cheaper and I'd like to be different from everyone else around here. Seems Antec cases are rather favored and NZXT gets the short end of the stick with most opinions. As much as I hate to spite Antec fans, I'll be going with the NZXT offering.

Antec P180 is a good and quiet case.

I dont think it has great airflow. But dont get a case unless you absolutely love it! Otherwise you will get bored with its looks

BTW love you "Rig In Progress: $0 [||||||||||||||||||||] $2000" in your sig i think im gonna steal it!

Thanks and you're welcome.

I really love the stylish look of the P182, but the Tempest looks better than a lot of people give it credit for. At least I think so. It seems a lot of people really love the Antec 900 and look down their nose at the NZXT for copying the design and making it better and cheaper. I'm going to wait a few weeks to buy one as my parents go on vacation Friday.

The problem is the case isnt designed as well as the A900. The antec case has better stock fans, a nicer mobo tray (though you have to mod to cable manage), and the anec quality of build. I have had terrible experiences with the Tempest and Nzxt cases in general. I do dont trust their quality at all. And yes I have used both the A900 and the Tempest and the 900 is well worth the little extra money.

It's expensive, but so nice. The aluminum is so thick, it stays cool even when the room is hot. Once you have your hands on it and see all the detail, you see why the price is high. It's super functional, and in my opinion the looks have somewhat of an old school flavor that will stand the test of time. Some of the new cases look gimmicky, and I was worried they would look weak a year or two down the road.

I'm not about to drop close to $400 on a case. That's just insane. If I wanted to spend that kind of money, I would have went DDR3 instead.

I keep hearing the Tempest isn't designed as well and lacks quality, but I also keep hearing quality is far from a problem. I guess I'll find out just how terrible the case is myself.

I also don't care if the stock fans are worse. I don't plan on using them. I'll be getting something with red LEDs instead.

Try a Rocketfish, Antec Nine Hundred or a NZXT case, those are some nice ones
