My System Specs

Default

UPDATE on this AntecP280 case ,they took ever little short cut they could to keep it cheap.Fisrt off it only comes with three 2-cool instead of there tri-cool.In front where the fans goes that you have to buy extra ,it only has two screw holes for each fan and two nipple that stick out very little to hold them in place.I had the P180 back in the day and it was build solid .This one seem to be made a little thiner.It had enoung room for two or even one 180mm fan and they could have design it where 120mm would work too.The Corsair would'nt fit like i wanted it to, the fan was to close to the pipes comeing out of it so I had to turn it around which seem to cause more tension when hooking up the heatsink.But it has leaked yet .It does keep it cooler at high loads then a H.S.F ,but I may go back to one just because I afraid one day I will wake up and have liquid all over my new parts.The rubber gurments that they put in there so you can run your wires is cheap ,real easy to knock out.I like to put screws in my DVD or Blu-ray drives ,but on this one you can not.the reagular harddrives fit just fine ,but the two slots for the SSD drives needs to be scooted back about two inches so it would line up with the other drives.It has some good quailties like a USB3 cable.It is quiet but I did switch out all fans to SiLentX.I heard good and bad things about them,but they are all working and my case is whisper quiet.The best part about it was it was big ,plenty of room to put a 13 inch video card in and plenty of room to work in,behind the motherboard it has over a inch of space makeing it easy to hide wires ,so that it look like a clean case.I would have give it a B- or three and half stars ,but you useally get what you pay for.For a $100 case it is great.
