    Stick to modular if you can.

    Corsair 520w and 620w HX are absolutely perfect for the job. Done a couple of p182 builds with them. Totally silent running in there too.

    Enermax Infiniti - 650W modular. Very nice PSU. Fits nicely in my P-182.

    Modular would be good, but you can manage without it.

    I have the previous P180b and you must consider cable length, and whether you can reach from the PSU across (or round) the motherboard, graphics card, etc. to the ports on the motherboard. I have a Seasonic S12-600W and some ATX extension cables from Scan. So don't feel limited by cable length, just get extensions if you need them.

    I believe current Seasonic cables are longer than they were.... I had no problems with my Seasonic S12 650 Energy+ in the P180.
    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.

    I found that with the motherboard tray being mounted further into the case, so you can route cables behind, I was able to route all the needed power cables (inc motherboard and CPU), behind with no problem. The Enermax cables are quite long, but it made the job easier.

    I've got a Corsair 520W in mine. The power cables for the motherboard were a bit tight but that just meant they fit really well.

    Do not get a Tagan modular for your p182, its a nightmare to fit in and you will need to remove the bottom fan as well. The corsair ones are good.

    I've tried a Seasonic Tornado 400W (quite old compared to S12) and this fits because of the mods I've made to the P180. P182 should be ok.

    Have also used an Enermax Noisetaker (clone) 485W and that has longer cables than the 370W Noisetaker and fits fine.

    Have you managed to include the bottom fan in with the Inifiniti as well, Ive read that its quite tight otherwise?
