I really liked the review, though it seemed like it was overly critical in order to appear unbiased.
I have been using this case for about a month and am very impressed with it. It'd design is definitely groundbreaking. However, there is always room for improvement!
It would have been nice for the space behind the motherboard tray to be a little larger and for some slots to be cut in the motherboard tray for wire routing.
Why isn't there a passage between the PSU and the lower hard drive tray so that you could run the power wires straight there instead of having to route them up to the top compartment and then back down to the hard drives?
Something for the future- it would be very nice to have a power bus running along the case into which you could just plug in modular power cords.
Very nice review. I will probably buy it at the end of summer, just need to know if this combo
ENERMAX NOISETAKER 485W POWER SUPPLY
DFI LANPARTY UT NF4 ULTRA-D MOTHERBOARD
ZALMAN CNPS7000B-ALCU HSF (or ARCTIC COOLING FREEZER 64)
would work without cable extention (but will probably buy extention to be able to do a nice cable managment) in the p180 and would like to know overclockability with AMD athlon 64 3200+ venice (wanna keep it low if i do it, with out touching memdivider and cpu volt
I'm using an Enermax EG495-AX PSU, DFI Ultra-D Motherboard, Thermalright XP-120, and AMD 3700+ San Diego without any problems. I didn't need any cable extensions, though it took some work to figure out how to wire it all. I'm overclocking to 2750 MHz without it getting too hot or loud.
I've never had a case with this kind of quality, all the others I've bought have been cheap and you can cut yourself on everything. You'd be hardpressed you cut yourself on any of the edges in this case it's awesome.
That's kind of funny- I cut myself on this case several times, more than with any other case I've used!
