P180 was designed from the ground up to provide the highest level of cooling, silence and stability to today's high-end PC users. The case features a breakthrough design with dual chambers to isolate the power supply and CPU in separate cooling zones for improved airflow and lowered system noise. Unique sound-deadening three-layer side panels minimize noise in even the loudest high-performance systems.
The innovative chassis accommodates up to Standard ATX motherboards, and features a highly configurable cooling system including three of Antec's 120mm speed-adjustable TriCool fans, an additional front 120mm fan mount and an adjustable VGA air duct with another 120mm fan mount for better cooling to the graphics card. Silicon grommets in all hard drive cages reduce hard drive vibrations, and a double-hinged front door opens to 270 degrees for easy access to internal components.
Eleven drive bays are provided for maximum expandability. There are seven expansion slots, two convenient front-mounted USB 2.0 ports, FireWire and audio connectors for easy multimedia connections. A built-in washable air filter keeps clean air flowing through the case.
"Antec prides itself on its commitment to silence, cooling, and reliability in all of its products," said Scott Richards, Antec worldwide vice president of sales and marketing. "With the P180, our goal was to create a case that addressed the most demanding needs of today's high-power gamers, of quiet computing enthusiasts, and of PC users of every sort in between. The result is a truly revolutionary case worthy of inclusion in a new category we call the Advanced Super Mid Tower."
The P180 is available for an estimated street price of $159 through major retailers, e-tailers and distributors. It is backed by Antec's Quality 3-Year Warranty.
