Unique upper and lower chamber structure: the power supply resides in a separate chamber to isolate heat from the system and lower system noise.
No power supply included: to optimize the performance of your Mini P180, your choice of power supply is crucial. Antec strongly recommends choosing from our Signature or TruePower series.

I was very skeptical about this case, but after the easy assembly, I came to really like it. It was a lot better looking than I thought..very very clean. The pre-installed fans are quiet and have a 3-speed controller on the back...nice touch.
Antec’s solution here instead takes the high road with a moderately priced offering that employs premium chassis features along with quality of design and workmanship that should last years.
This has to be one of my favourite cases. It is a very rugged case and has some neat features (removable drive cages, front and bottom filters, huge top fan). Because of the inside layout, things can run a little tight, but the quality of construction is just great. If you find it on sale, don't hesitate to buy this.
What surprised me is that this case is pretty much the same size as the Antec 300. Perhaps if the cable management holes were shaped differently I'd have had a better time with the build. It would have been nice to see a painted interior and possibly with white SATA cables for a all white theme.
Great case! I already have a computer with the P182 and I'm fairly happy with it. It does a good job of lower the noise of my fans while keeping everything cool.
In some ways, I actually like this case better than my 182! For one, the eSATA port on front! I like having the hard drive bays in line with the motherboard. I also like not having that fan right in front of the PSU like the 182 does (remove it, I know. But you still have the support cage that gets in the way...). I found it easy to keep the cables nice and tidy inside, so it looks nice when you take the side off the case. I love that huge 200mm fan on top! I'm actually impressed that they were able to fit it in the case! Note: if you have a really long optical drive (above 170mm), the top fan will get in the way. I didn't have that problem, and most people probably wouldn't either.
First tower Ive ever bought. I chose it cuz it had a door in the front to hide my black disc drive. The inside is a little cramped but it works. Best part IMO is the 2 fans it came with. A large one on top and a med one in the back so I dont have to worry about it getting too hot.
Even though this case is called a p180 white, the front and side panels are an aluminum grey with white trim, which makes it look stunning for a computer case. The hard drive capacity, with added hot swap bays is fantastic for such a small case.
Got this case for a build for the parents. Just an everyday reliable quiet pc. Added one 120mm scythe 800 rpm fan to the front and the whole case is whisper quiet with the two stock fans on low setting. It is defiantly a noticeable sound with the fans turned up, but not overly loud. If your not to picky with fan noise im sure this would house and cool a very decent gaming machine, if so desired.
