Best antec case for this build

Postposted on Sat Oct 02, 2010 10:11 am

I have been fortunate enough to have been sponsored by antec, and as such I have been offered my choice of case and power supply.
I believe the 1200 and new df-85 are the most expensive, but im looking at building a utility player so may be a bit over the top, what you guys think?

many thanks

The P193 would be quieter.

I'm moving this discussion to the case forum.

I think the P183 is the best case they make, but that's just me. It's really a matter of preference.

+1. This is so true. Had the P180, hated it. Bought the Sonata III, best case I've ever used.

Also note that to make an Antec P-series case quiet, while providing proper airflow, you'll need to toss the Tri-cools. Unless you can get proper cooling with all fans set on low they are too loud for the airflow they are pushing.
