My System Specs

Default Antec p182 SE review by DriverHeaven

I am a fan of the p180 but some people have some beefs with it, and Antec has heard these beefs and addressed them well in the updated p182. The major beef has been cable management but with the p182, cable routing behind the motherboard tray is much easier due to well-placed cut-outs and tie-ins.

The p182 SE (special edition) is a limited edition with a run of 5000 units and has some unique features such as:
  • a mirror finish,
  • an adjustable snakelight inside the case,
  • rear 2-channel fan controoler,
  • watercooling tubing ducts,
  • black interior.
If you want something special then maybe this is worth the nearly 300 dollars but I would direct you to the regular p182 which is the same price as the p180 ($143 CAD at Direct Canada). These cases have excellent cooling great sound-proofing, and an elegant understated design.

Not a big fan of Antec's cases at all but i must admit that this one looks great.

with the new revisions to the antec p18x cases they are a definite winner in my eyes now over the 900. Cable managment is almost a dream!

The case looks really nice and all, but I would be too afraid of scratching the case...
