    Akasa Eclipse-62 vs Antec P180

    I see quite a few forum members have either one of these cases. I'm planning to buy one or the other, which is best?

    Hmmmm, i depends really First, what do yoy like the look of more? The thing in like about the eclipse its the fact EVRYTHING is removable but the P180 has a good sound reducing design.

    Do you often play around with the PCs hardware?

    clearly an aqquired taste !

    i prefer suttle smart cases unless it is going to be hidden , i got the spcr edition p180 and its noise reduction features are great and i still manage to get around inside its case even though i dont care in the slightest for tidying cables and have a thermochill 120.2 rad a swiftech apogee and a xspc 1000 pump and some freview cards and a pcie card and 3 hard drives in it
