Only kidding about the P180, I can see the appeal. The possibilities for cooling and keeping the noise levels down appear to be fantastic. And, I really like the side exit drive bays. It's always a struggle to slide out the hard drive tray, towards the rear, on my Chieftec towers without first removing the agp card. I need to remember that the SPCR article mentioned a follow up article in June, it should be interesting..

Unfortunately, you and LoneWolf gave me a serious case of the hots for a P160... Well, that's what i'm telling my wife.

I did get a chance to look at the 160 in a mom & pop shop and it looks even better in person. Since then I've been hooked and just waiting for a justifiable excuse to build another box.

Have you seen a price on the P180 yet?

LOL good for you...maybe LoneWolf and i should ask Antec for a commission?
yeah i still think the P160 looks great. a case with the looks of the P160 and features/design of the P180 would be great. unfotunately no such thing exists nor is likely to.

Yeah, and BenQ, LiteOn, Pioneer etc :lol:

Thanks for all the links, really appreciate the leg work. :)

Well, I got lucky... I sold one of my computers yesterday to a friends son. An old EP8RDA+ mobo with a barton running at 3200. That sale gave me the cash to order the P160 ( no window) that just happens to be on sale this week at CompUSA.

Good luck with your build.

congratulations and enjoy.
what price?
as far as i recall, at newegg the P160 with window and without window are nearly the same price! (sometimes the windowed version was actually a little cheaper!)
just checked right now the windowed version is $10 more - $120 vs. $130.

OK i now see your Hot Deals post about the price.


me, i'm still holding out for a P180 hoping it won't be too expensive.
