    Antec P180/P182

    Hi,

    I'm going to buy a new case for me.
    I was looking at the Antec P180.
    Now there are 3 different versions out there:

    Antec P180
    Antec P180 V2 Advanced
    Antec P182 Advanced PERFORMANCE

    Whats the difference between these, especially between the P180 V2 and the P182

    Thanks in advance,
    Christian

    I've no idea about the V2, but for a P182 review and its improvements over the P180 read this:

    Yeah, I found that one.
    Funny that all 3 cases on the Scan website are linked to the same Hexus review.

    Get the P182 - it's sleek, quiet, reasonably sized and the cable tidy section is fantastic

    Yeah, I ordered the P182, but it is out of stock at the moment,
    so I have to wait for it to arrive

    You will be very pleased with it...... P180 (v2) is great... but the P182 looks even better!
    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.

    I think I know the difference between P180 and P180 V2, not sure if of use to anyone now though

    P180 is the original one.

    P180 - the lower chamber fan was changed from 38mm depth to 25mm depth. The graphics card duct was removed and the PCI blanking plates had air holes in them.

    Yes indeedy.... but I would think only P180 (v2) is available now, original P180 would indeed be very old stock?
