It's damn near perfect. If only they'd allow for more HDD.

See my case is perfect - 5x 3" HDD bays and 3x 5.25" bays, in a mATX case!

I had the epic P180m tongue.gif Only few gripes I had about that case:

-needed to remove the bottom HDD cage (the one with the cool pullout HDD trays frown.gif) for longer GPUs (GTX580/HD6970 length, or in my ownership time, HD5870 length tongue.gif)

-it seemed like there was just a *lither* less than neccesary cable routing space behind the mobo tray area. Probably just me, though

-the 200mm big boy fan.... had either no airflow, or no quiet mad.gif

-the case was large enough to fit a ATX board... Antec could of removed the 200mm big boy, and used the 120mm mount they had on all their P180 fullsize cases, and have fit all 7 expansion slots, IMO. Well, probably move down the PSU divider a lither, too, to make that happen.

Otherwise, it has been one of the best, roomiest, and quietest mATX cases I have worked on to date biggrin.gif It's priced very well, too smile.gif The P180m definately has the thickest side panels I've ever seen in a mATX case (dampens sound, probably tongue.gif), and the HDD cages are mounted on slideouts with a thumb screw securing each in smile.gif The solid front panel is just icing on the cake biggrin.gif I really wish Antec would release a decent update for this case, in the future smile.gif A P190m or P183m would be awesome biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

I agree with absolutely everything you said! The one other thing i found which i wasn't so keen on was the fact to have any airflow going into the case other than that of passive nature was having to remove the drive cages, i would like to have both in but in order to mount a 120mm fan i've taken one out.

Also it's DAMN sexy. lol smile.gif

It's at the bigger end of the SFF spectrum, but yes, Micro ATX rigs are members of our society. biggrin.gif

170^2 = 28,900mm^2
244^2 = 59,536mm^2

It's twice the area... if you weighed twice what you do, would you be "not that much bigger?"
