give me one.
and wow lots of fan s there...
hopefully will be as good as the p182 and p180
Is this the 20Kg jobbie? And if so does that include the dual PSU?
The price is a bit frightening - £287.53 at ebuyer.
43lb (20kg) out of the box. One for a castors mod.
The p182 should be my next case, this beast just looks too... huge. And the price, oh the price. £290 with two PSUs isn't that bad though, if you're paying about £55 for a PSU, it means the case is £180. Now compare that to a big Lian-Li. However, I'd like to see these PSUs tested first.
ONLY £247 at OCUK. I'd rather have a £100 case and a £145 PSU.
The 200mm fan is nothing new: Antec put the exact same fan in the top of their 900 model.
That said, I'd still rather have a V-1000.
love antec, an excellent company. I've just had to order some new drive rails for my antec p160, purchased 4 years ago, and they're sending them to me free....from AMERICA!
hmm the question is though are the PSU's any good and can you buy a version without the PSU's in?
Antec PSUs have always been right up there with the best, I can't imagine they'd skimp there as they probably have most of the high quality componentes to hand from their TruePower and Trio lines.
Does this mean we can expect yet another p180 price drop
oh and anyone gunna review the new Antec Sonata III??
hold on did someone say dual power supplies
Indeed they did. Great news for server setups tbh, replace that dual job with a proper pair of PSU's and get some nice redundancy going on.
then again then lian li 2000+ will take a dual PSU (if you get the different mounting plate at the back)
there are like 3 i think, 1 for 1x psu and 2x 80mm fan, and 2 for dual PSU's (which aren't standardised i think ... sigh)
MOVE THE BOTTOM FAN IN FRONT OF THE HDD'S!!!!
It sounds like a modded P180 with dual PSU's and a few bigger fans
looks like a great case for air cooling, but not so good for h20 cooling.
dual psus will take some space away for bottom 120.2 rads : /
i love my p180b but frankly, it was quite a hassle to watercool and cable management is a bit of a problem.
I would like one without the duel PSUs, and use the extra space for Water. Else I will stick with the V2000 I'm planning on getting.
