Definitely, including panels to block the unused fan mounts would be great.

It's too bad that Antec seems to be giving up on the CP power supplies. They seem like a really good idea to me.

This case doesn't seem like it would be a good match for a passive or semi-passive PSU. I guess the idea is that you'd go with a Solo II for that.

Should work fine, just mount it with fan/vent on top.

Hey guys, we really appreciate your enthusiasm for the P280. If you have any questions, I'll be checking back periodically.

As other posters have asked, is there any word on Antec offering a blanking plate for the top vents? Eg. a 240x120x5(?)mm plastic sheet. Some acoustic foam stuck to it would also be good, but not essential. :)

It could be included with the accessories kit in a future revision of the P280, as well as sold as an accessory on the Antec site.

Is the P280 available?

If so where can I buy it? If it is not yet available, when will it be?

Here's thorough review by the way.

I think the Antec did it because of the new design used in the P280 different from that used in the P180 series. The CP series are made for a dual chamber case with horizontal straight flow. The P280 is an only chamber design where the flow could not be kept in a straight line thus it makes more sense the use of PSU with bottom/top fan.

I'm sorry for my English.

First priority for me is noise. P180 I bought 6 yers ago is still the king, so P280 has nothing to offer. Building a new PC takes some time (3rd build going now) but it's worth it.

good stuff, I was actually thinking of modding my antec 300, but it will probably cost me a lot more than if I were to just buy a noise dampended case.

If cost was no obstruction which would you go for?

I'm looking at p280 {nzxt hush 2 eliminiated because of lack of USB 3 front header and the ugly top)

ANY better silenced rigs out there for me to choose from?

I have relayed the feedback to the design team. Wish I had more feedback for you. I think it's a sound idea (no pun intended).
