    One thing that pulled me to the Antec P180 is the amazing sound proofing it's supposed to have. Does the Silverstone case offer this kind of proofing that is at least just as good?


    Many thanks for all the help guys!!

In addition to this, the Antec P180 is actually a fair bit wider. Also, I have no plans at all to go SLI.

    What do you think?
    I have an Antec P180 with an 8800GTX and here are lots of pictures.... http://etheav8r.googlepages.com/p180
    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.

    Thanks a lot.

    Are you having any problems with cooling? I'd imagine there would be problems with obstructions to the air flow?
