"Official" Antec Performance One Owners Thread - Page 52

post #511 of 887
I was using my Antec SOLO for awhile and loving it. My cousin recently gave me an original P180. It was in terrible condition, the door isn't even really attached. I have it off at the moment. Lots of parts missing and the panels are deeply scratched, one part dented. Currently have the reset button as my power switch b/c the big button is broken. Decided to put my parts in to test it out. Cable management options are awful, I might have to make some holes. Cons aside, this thing kept my CPU at 23C idle and with Prime95, the max temp was 42C. Pretty damn amazing. Now I have to see about some replacements/mods to make this thing presentable.

For the guys that painted the inside of the case, Did you guys pop the rivets? or just broke it down to the bare frame and painted?

Here's my hand me down P180. Terrible condition, lots of deep scratches, fitting issues, cracked front bezel, missing 5.5" covers, fan filter, broken door and no mounts. Cools great!

Thanks to BANDIT_COROLLA for letting me know about this thread.

Except for an optical drive, I recently bought a completely new system and just finished putting everything together as of 3 days ago.

I've had an Antec case for over a decade and the only thing that is wrong with it, is that it's ugly due to all that it's been through. I decided to look at what Antec had to offer these days. I first noticed a P180 and loved how it looked (brushed aliminum I think) and really liked the fact that the "P" series was known for being quiet as well as the obvious major factor of keeping things cool. My old Antec case is a tank but it certainly would not be described as "quiet". I wanted to bring my new case upstairs out of the dungeon where laptops were the only thing my wife could stomach until now (in terms of both aesthetics and noise).

I then saw that they're no longer making the P180 and that there have been a few models since then in the same series.

I've not done any gaming for over 5 years now...the last game I was into was Quake3...but I'm ready to explore a couple again now that good money is coming in, job is good, and life is fairly stable (I quit gaming when I was laid off-figured I'd better focus on other things for a while).

I completely appreciate the cases with the windows and the lights etc...I love to look at them. It's just not my kind of thing to buy personally - I like a high quality/highly functional...and when I have the luxury of bringing aesthetics into the equation, I like a stylish but understated look. The P183 was the best case I could find for what I was looking for...I looked at other brands as well, but Antec still had what I was looking for.

I decided to get the Antec CP-850 PS too since it's specifically designed for the P183 and a couple other cases in this series. I LOVE the PS being on the bottom for one thing.

I'll post a few pictures within a week. Looking at some of the impressive pictures in this thread, I see that I have things to learn about cable management. One thing I like about this case though is that a novice at cable management like me can still end up with the most uncluttered system within at least a 10 mile radius.

Again, great pictures and great systems guys....impressive. I think these Antec "P" cases are a wise choice..they're a longer term forward thinking investment. Such good decision making is additional evidence of us having more activity going on in the frontal cortex than the average bloke on the street.
