Their website lists a 200x30mm Big Boy but that wouldn't fit in the spot at the top of the P180 Mini since that fan is stated to be only 25mm deep and just barely clears the top of the motherboard.

Any idea if there's an OEM or reseller that offers the 200x25mm model TriCool?

Thanks.

I believe that Antec has only made one Big Boy 200 Tricool Fan. You can find it for sale at many places on the Internet.

So the implication is that the technical spec description of the top fan in the P180 Mini is incorrect and it's actually 30mm deep?
I wish I had a way to measure mine right now to confirm/deny that. :)

On the Antec website, in the "Features" section it says "1 top (standard) 200mm x 25mm TriCool fan", but in the User's Manual (PDF download), it says this on Page 5 of English version:

200mm TriCool Fan
Size: 200 x 200 x 30mm TriCool Fan
Rated Voltage: DC 12V
Operating Voltage: 10.2V ~ 13.8V

SPCR reviewed the Mini P180, and measured it's 200mm fan as being 30mm thick:
