Dampening material vs case windows

Is there a noticeable effect on noise transmission when dampening material is used on a panel with a case window?

Is that on the top shelf of a regular closet? How does it do with heat buildup? Last time I put a computer in the closet, it kept my clothes toasty warm. But then again, my personal servers are always hand-me-downs from my main rig, with tons of smaller hard drives.

P180 from Newegg?

Has anyone here gotten their P180 from Newegg recently? I'm wondering if they have the new version as the P180 was on sale a couple weeks ago, and the P180B is now. Trying to decide whether its worth $100 to go back to using a case vs. having everything laid out open.

Did you have any problems with cabling? I thought the A8R generally required cable extenders.

I'm pretty sure Newegg "filters" reviews to show more positive ones.
