Conclusion: The Antec P183 arrived in class and performed beyond my expectations. In addition to the excellent shelf appeal of the product packaging, Antec also maintains a high-quality website with plenty of photos and information. A few of the P183 links weren't working, but that is often the case with a recent product launch. Once outside the box, the updated exterior styling adds a nice touch on an old classic.
Pros: Visually appealing design, Excellent thermal performance, Variable speed fans w/ integrated controller, Noise reduction/isolation mounts, Built in support for water cooling, Three year warranty
Cons: Still no motherboard tray cutout for heatsink mounting access
Conclusion: Antec have certainly improved on the P183; with great looks and a striking Gun Metal finish, the case certainly looks the part. But even more so, thanks to the inclusion of the front vents finished in what appears to be black chrome, with enlarged side vents and the vented drive bay covers, the cooling capacity of the case has been improved beyond my expectations. I certainly did not expect the Antec P183 with, only 2 fans present, to out perform my Silverstone TJ07...
Pros: +, Great Air Flow, + Improved Looks, + Excellent Build Quality/Finish
Cons: + Only ships with 2x 120mm fans out of a possible 5
