Are you serious... that's a nice waste. Really sorry for you, knowing the price of the P190. Did you manage to save the PSUs?

The case was entirely stripped down for the powder-coating, so I've got EVERYTHING. The PSU's, the front door assembly, the side panels, the HDD cages, all the little plastic bits everywhere... kind of stupid, really. Too bad Antec doesn't sell just the frame.

At least I got little use out of it. Before I moved it to the Sonata III, it housed my current system, so I can at least verify that it's a dream case to work in, if over-sized for most purposes.

I demand pictures of the dead case!

In all seriousness though, that really sucks, though your lucky all of your parts weren't in the case. So whats the plan now? Try it again down the road? Or just say screw it and move on?

oh thats a real tragedy

I thought they were going to have an RIP section to post your broken bits...perhaps they should.

Look forward to the next attempt.

Bummer.

Well if you get another P190 you have spare parts to try things out and still have a backup.

God, I love my city sometimes. Having two universities and a technical college within a stone's throw just kicks ass sometimes. I've got a buddy who's (wife is) retiring his MM Horizon... $100 cash and a couple cases of beer and it's mine.

I heard plenty of hype about these, and they're drilled for my radiators. Anybody here ever used one of these cases?

The Captain rang Antec up, but they didn't have anything to offer, so I snagged the MM. Not what I had originally envisioned, but I think it'll work out just fine in its own right.

Presently still waiting on a few odd parts to come in, because it'll be too much of a headache to pull everything apart later on. I'm hoping the stuff arrives this week, but my NCIX order seems unexpectedly delayed for some reason.
