NCIX Burnaby has a few in stock right now. I went in to resignedly purchase an SLK3000, and when I mentioned it was only because no local stores would have it in case till mid-June, the rep told me they had just (within 5 minutes of my arrival) received an early shipment. Apparently their ETA includ...

Thank you so much!

I was literally minutes away from setting up my system, with the exact same case and mobo. I have old screws and I think I'll use those. I wonder if there's anything Antec Rep can do for you? IF it's because of the screws, there's no doubt Antec is (perhaps not financially) responsible for the damag...

I'm literally picking up the remaining pieces of my system tomorrow. Brand new system, decent parts, and no case. I understand if Antec has had to delay the case to be satisfied with it, and I understand that some retailers get it later than others. But this is ridiculous. Frontierpc has also made c...

Frontier PC has now changed the ETA for the black P180 to "mid-July." They still don't have the regular version, either. I guess I should start looking for somewhere in the U.S. to order from, I'm certainly not waiting yet another month! ARRRGHGGHGHG. *ahem* Frontierpc is the most inconsistent stor...

List of current vendors who have the P180 in stock/availible

I think it would be really handy to maintain a list of stores which currently have the P180 in stock. On that note, I will shortly be adding the sites mentioned in other threads. Canadian Sites/Stores (Canadian $) Direct Dial $189.99 NCIX 178.80 (Lower Mainland, BC) American Sites/Stores (American $...

Bob, I spoke with FrontierPC about the new ETA for the silver case. The staff member seemed rather surprised, and that certainly bothers me. I was also told that the price of the silver edition has not been locked down, so the difference in price between it and the SPCR version may not be as great a...

Sonata II - Neglected due to P180?

While I, like everyone else, really like the P180, I don't want to ignore the Sonata II as a viable option. Does anyone know when it's supposed to come out? Can we expect a "tour" of it as we received for the P180? Why should I get one over the other, in terms of advantages/disadvantages? Alternatel...

A few weeks ago, frontierpc listed the silver model at 169.99 on sale. I immediately added one to my cart, and refuse to take it out :). I emailed frontierpc today, and they told me mid june for the spcr version, and mid july for the silver version. Which leads me to my next question : how bad would...

I think we need a solid answer on the release dates of the two models. Mcbob and I have been told, by the same store, that the black spcr version would be out at the end of June, and mid-June. NCIX has the silver version listed for July 28th. People in this forum were suggesting end of May, early Ju...

Frontier PC now says mid June

Hello all, I just phoned the store, and was told they wouldn't have it till the middle of June. Argh, I'm waiting to buy my mobo and cpu until the p180 comes out, as we've already seen small drops in the 3200 venice's price since release, and I expect a better price. But this is driving me insane. I...

How to pick a fan controller?

I'll be building a system using the P-180 case soon (hopefully), and know that I'll have at least a couple of fans in there. Are there any recommendations as to which controller is best? Is an LCD screen worth it? Do some controllers look good but actually suck? Bowing before your collective wisdom,...

Right now it looks like I'll go for the BBA x800xl and the Zalman mentioned above. Can anyone confirm that these two parts are compatible with one another? Also, is the installation very difficult? And do I need to change anything on the video card before attaching this? It seems to me the video car...

$50 to make my video card silent?

I've been looking at various x800xl video cards. The gigabyte one has caught my eye as it only uses a heatsink rather than fans which may be noisy. But, it's significantly more expensive than the build by Ati one, which also has a longer warrantee. So, does anyone know if the BBA x800xl is really lo...
