When is an RMA not an RMA

When it's a case... There's a field for serial number on the ticket form, but unless you're inquiring about a PSU, you don't fill it out. There's no serial number on our cases. On our power supplies, it's on the bar-coded sticker. The sticker may be immediately visible upon opening the case, or you ...

Nice mod Mojo! Pic? I keep a list of links that I send people who might have the same annoyance with a case as someone who fixed it. It's simply impossible to make a case that everybody loves, so I like being able to help people find solutions that fit their taste. That's kinda how I ended up as the...

Power Supply Location

Putting the power supply in the bottom of a case has one drawback and several benefits. The drawback is when some power supplies have short cables, cable routing can be a challenge. Sometimes an inexpensive extender is required for one of the motherboard power connectors. With CPU coolers getting he...

Square-waves and active PFC don't play well together. If you don't want buzz, then make sure UPS output is sine-wave. Some UPSs will not buzz when getting power from the wall, but make a racket when powering from battery.

Many case designers use that twist-out method for their front 5.25 bay shields. The little plus signs that you see punched out are there so that you can jam a phillips-head screwdriver in it and wiggle it back and forth to break the small tab on each end. :idea: If you need to flatten down the resul...

Mini P182 Secret Weapon

One of the things some people miss is that if you remove the middle HDD bay, there's room for a full-length video card and it still holds 3 hard drives in the upper bay. Sorry if some people don't like the vents on the front door, but when we made the case short, we lost a lot of air intake volume o...

Putting the Big Boy fan on the side wasn't needed until people really started wanting to build the 'V8'. :shock: The NINE HUNDRED had the 200mm Big Boy on top with three 120mm fans around the case, and that was enough for any mortal system.

I put 850's in our NINE HUNDRED cases when we build demo systems and the PSU fan is quiet as the grave. If the fan controller is not functioning properly, that is a warranty issue. Your only option should be to get it swapped out either through Buy.com or Antec. Hopefully it's still within time to e...

I have 4 in my lower HD cage and another in the upper cage. HD temps range from low 30's C to mid 40's C depending on time of year, fan speed, and if I'm over due for cleaning out the filters.

CPU temps are typically in the mid 40's C.

As of right now there are no plans to discontinue P180/P180B even after P190 is shipping. If P180 sales volumes fall then yes we'd dicontinue it.

Turn the fan speed up on the lower chamber fan?

I say this since you said you have the stock fans running as quiet as they'll allow. Should be a switch on the fan, bump it up a notch and see how the HD temps are and how the noise is.
