    Hold on, is this a rebranded Antec P8 chassis with some plastic parts and lights thrown on?

    Looking at all the details the main chassis is identical, the build quality also sounds very similar.

    Definitely using internals sourced from the same OEM (or a "borrowed" design)

    Differences from comparing photos:
    Plastic tat on outside
    No Antec logo on PSU shroud
    HDD mount located under PSU shroud is at a different height
    Different fan cut out in roof

    Everything else?
    Same mainboard tray including identical punched design shapes, same cable management bulge, identical SSD mounts, identical expansion slot blanks and so on.

    So they are charging an extra £50 for a tarted-up £60 case. (Amazon price for the Antec P8)

    Yep, it definitely is. Good spot, guys! In fact, after putting this case away, I got the P8 for review (incoming next week) and had a serious sense of déjà vu!
