Default Question regarding Antec P182 Advanced Super Mid Tower Case

I'm thinking of getting one of this.
My question is:

1.Does a new X58 mainboard can fit?
2.Can I use SLI 3 Way with this case?
Thanks for your time.

Check this pic, and the first rig in my sig for both answers. Yes, and probably not.

IIRC, the Rampage II Extreme has an extra inch in width - could the case accommodate that too?

It would be tight. Very tight.

Thank you for your answer 3.0charlie.
I was hoping that it would do both.
Doesn't look like it would be able to fit SLI 2way.
I read some good reviews on this case - quiet, good looking, and good cooling.
I guess I will look into some alternatives. I know very little about cases.
Can anyone suggest me other mid tower cases that might be fore SLI 2 or 3 ways.
Thanks again.

What are you planning on using for tri-sli? Unless they do a really good job of exhausting out the back I think you're setting yourself up for heating issues by trying to stick with a mid-sized case.

What he really means is: "I think you should buy a Cosmos S".


Hahaha!

:P

But you should, it'd probably fit the bill.

SLI works - I have 2 260GTX in there right now. But for the third, that would be a tight fit, with the bottom black cross plate: that would have to be removed.

Yes, SLI will fit but three would be cramped (in almost any case that wasn't built for an EATX board). Not being a hardcore gamer I guess I've never seen the point of spending double the price of the video card for a nominal 3-10% increase in video speed with SLI/Xfire not to mention triple/quad price/performance.

This is not the case you want.

Get the Antec 1200
