The guy told me that all the systems that he built lately using P180s had the modified cases (both normal P180 and P180B). I specifically asked about the P182 changes and he confirmed that the cases they have in stock have all those changes (the tray moved foward, the 3 "holes" in the mobo tray, th...

The new revisions of P180 and P180B have all the features that the P182 has, but they maintain their original colors (P180 silver and P180B black) - at least that's what I've been told by a local vendor when I asked about when they'll receive a stock of P182 cases That would be strange if it's true...

P182 in Cnada?

Does anyone know if the P182 is for sale in Canada yet?
NCIX only has the extremely expensive P182SE on their site.

I don't want to have to order one from the US.

Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme?

The Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme with the extra 2 heatpipes looks quite impressive. http://www.anandtech.com/casecooling/showdoc.aspx?i=2943&p=1 They reviewed it more for it's overclocking abilities but of course the better it cools the less we have to rely on powerful fans at stock speeds.

Even with the Ninja, you may be able to get your hands on just the backplate pack of the ultra 120. I believe they do sell just the mounting hardware for LGA 775. You can use the backplate from this kit with the Ninja and some screws to hard mount the ninja instead of using the Ninja's push/pin mou...

I also like the size of the fins and way they're spaced apart in the Ninja but I'm disappointed in the mounting mechanism.
