Antec P180 — a new approach to desktop cooling

Antec introduced a new solution and a new approach to organizing airflow inside PC enclosures. Though based on the ATX standard, the CPU and graphics card zone has a dedicated "heat pipe", which is not obstructed by PSU located below in its own heat pipe.

3 x 120mm fans create strong airflow. At that 2 are located in the CPU area, while the 3rd cools HDD tray and PSU like it was a server. Besides, the 4th 120mm fan is available as a front-panel option as well as a 80mm graphics card cooler. The enclosure is made of 0.8mm steel. Side panels are made of two layers of aluminium with a layer of plastic in-between for better sound damping.

The front panel offers USB, FireWire and audio interfaces, 4 x 5.25" bays and 1 x 3.5" bay. Inside, there are 6 x 3.5" bays for hard drives. The fans feature dust filters that can be detached to clean. Sized 541x506x206mm, the enclosure weighs 14kg.

Orders are accepted, the price is about $170 without PSU.
