I have the P180B and am looking for replacement parts but Antec is not in stock.

Will the Lian Li 5.25 Bezel match and fit the Antec P180?

Also, I threw away that bay separate that blocks air from the bottom section. Can I use a thin mousepad to block the holes instead?

Also, are 2 fans necessary on the heatsink?
I have only one Scythe on the right side of my Thermalright 120 Ultra.

I'm not sure on that particular 5.25 drive bay, but I'm using just a regular OEM cheap black plastic one, and it works, it's probably not as good as the antec ones were, but I lost those long ago.

I cut out my divider, I may still have the black plastic part that went on it though. I can look around if you're interested in it, but yeah, anything should work to cover that if you really feel the need to, I doubt it makes much difference either way though.

2 fans in push/pull is almost always better than 1 fan, I'm not familiar with your heatsink, but I would guess that theory holds true for it as well.

Looking mighty fine there Jeci biggrin.gif how is your 2nd front intake fan mounted? looks like its floating in no mans land is it just sitting there?

and i am geusing the black and blue (probably 20+4) cables are extentions?? were these necessary? or just adding a dash more awsome to the mix?

It is monted, but it's not really floating, it's squeezed between the bottom of that partition, and the upper half of the lower hdd cage mount, pretty snug, it's not going anywhere.

The extensions are purely aesthetics no real purpose, just give it a little more vibrance than anything else!

A long time owner of the P182 here unfortunately I barely have any pictures of that one, I'll see what I can find. I just ordered a new rig and instead of a Silverstone FT02 build I jumped on the P280 since it was half the the price and I loved my P182. Once it's built I'll throw up some pics.

EDIT:
I could only find pictures of it from the day I sold it frown.gif Terrible wiring but it was built before I cared about that stuff.
