P182SE - no case speaker??

Post by coherence » Sat Apr 21, 2007 10:22 am

So, I just built my GF's new rig using this case, and when connecting all the front panel headers to the motherboard, I realized something was missing... No connector for a case speaker!

Is this right? I've never seen a case that did not have a built-in speaker for hearing the POST beeps.

Anyone end up adding one on their own?

Most of the newer motherboards come with built-in speaker, so case speaker is not needed anymore. P180's come without speaker, so I assume P182SE would come without one too.

Very few of any new mid-to-high end cases come with speakers anymore. They are going the way o fthe Dodo.

I disconnected my case speaker long-long ago, it could say "beep" and I did like the silence more ;)
