I can't wait to read the review on the P183 and the CP-850.

For some reason I'm thinking I might be dissapointed... oh well... time will tell.

Read on 2 sites now that the p183 and p193have been officially introduced.
http://tweakers.net/nieuws/59364/antec- ... n-uit.html (dutch site) mentions it is supposed to be for sale with immediate effect, with the P183 costing €161 and the P193 €190. Haven't seen it for sale in shops yet though..

i was expecting it to be a bit more quiet (they could have changed the fans with quieter ones) , because my old no name case was much more than this. and i don't think those air filter really do their job well because are to wide.the metal grill from front is is very ugly,has to be removed.don't know why they put the key to the door because the reset and power button can be accessed without opening the door thru the holes.

What could the reason be? And, more importantly, why can't it be divulged?
Anyone know why the PSU has been lowered? I'm curious too.

So that it can fit the CP-850?

Of course.

Easy enough to use the CP-850 in a P180/2 -- just remove the little platform. All that takes is a pulling a couple of rivets. Since the case back panel is mostly vented, it will be easy to line some screw mounting holes. Or go all the way and enlarge the exhaust hole on the back panel of the case.

Will be testing a CP-850 very soon, you'll know soon enough whether that PSU is worth doing any such mods to the earlier 180 series cases.

Only sign of them in the shops here (The Netherlands) is one webshop claiming to have them in stock on may 6th. I did spot them in both the US and UK webshops though so I'm not sure what the deal is.
Has anyone seen them in other EU countries?

Here in Italy, P183 is already available (about €165). The CP-850 power supply should be available by the end of April.
