Well for one thing, adding an intake fan would decrease your temps dramatically instead of the fans passively pulling air through the case. Below is my setup and right now im showing temps on my Aerogate II as: 1.Lower HDD Cage area 29.5c 2. Main intake area 30c 3. Upper case 33c 4. Rear CPU area 31...

I have to say but in my years of case modding, the P180 is the first case that I have absolutely no desire to mod both from an asthesic and cooling standpoint. Its just..........perfect.

Hmmmm, those are most DEFINENTLY not mobo standoff screws, those are HDD mounting screws.

You've missed another reason for the "spoiler": to help stop people from accidentally blocking the hole by setting stuff there. A flat blowhole is an invitation to absentmindedly setting cd's or somesuch over the opening. Having the spoiler maens that even if you bury the case in junk, you'll still...

I am delighted that there will be a black version, and I hope the case reviews well. But I remain skeptical about the positions of the PSU exhaust with a fresh air intake just above it. I read the post about the Lian-li diverter for the exhaust, and recall that it has previously been condemmed as c...

@MikeC: for the actual review, please show the P180 populated with a nForce4-SLI motherboard and two long cards fitted with AC Silencers. I don't think they will fit with the middle HDD cage installed. Of course, you won't really need the middle cage if the bottom one works as specified. But I'd li...

I like the colour scheme you have for the rest of the case, and I think it really looks great, but I agree with Tay that the grille should be black instead. White seems too contrasting to the other colours IMHO. But if YOU like the white, then stay with it of course, because that's what really matt...

What's the grill addition do to the noise level? Air flow maybe? I've been playing around with doing something like that myself with my sonata. How is it working out? any improvement in temps? Do you get much noise coming through the grill? The purpose was for airflow as the case was still sufficat...

The grills are for looks, nothing more and my airflow has increased dramatically as a result and my temps have dropped around 2c.

Ahhh i've made a discovery. By removing the front lower benzel cover the airflow DRAMATICALLY increased inside. This confirms my suspicion that the intake design is extremely resricting in allowing passive airflow to move through the front and thus, into the case. Im now formulating a plan to someho...
