You mean without opening the PSU, right?

I believe you can leave one screw on, rotate the grill out of position, screw the other 3 screws on again, unscrew the 4th screw, and finish it off.

thanks for the reply.
I'm not too sure about the NVS 280. It seems to be the very lowest I can get. What can it do?

Why waste your time with asking Antec or other makers to provide black interiors? Why not just take the case down to you local auto body shop and get a custom paint job? Maybe you could get them to do a nice iridescent (the kind that changes color depending on what angle you look at it) job on the ...

I agree that Seasonics are built to work, and work well. Go take a can of spray paint to it and replace it with an LED fan if you want. I prefer the black.

by the way:
"Almost everything black looks good."

Antec's not the only manufacturer. But even if black catches on everywhere else...it still looks better than grey(gray?).

im not a fan of the shiny outside but i like the gunmetal + black inside.

to people asking why bother about the inside?
I like to open my PC and look inside - you don't need a window to see.
Like I said already - it's unique, and better than that boring old gray.

let's start a petition for the black interior P182.

keep in mind - this will probably bring prices a bit higher.
It was probably just an added bonus for the mirror-like one.

I bet if Antec made the normal P182 black on the inside they would sell even better.
I've fallen in love with black interiors. It's interesting how no one has thought of that before.

520HX - Lack of SATA connectors?

It seems like the Corsair 520HX and 620HX are dominating on spcr. I don't need 620W so I thought i would save myself $30 by getting a 520HX. -- but ! there's only 2x2 sata cables. (compared to the 4x2 in the 620HX) 1) Is there a possibility I will need more than 4xsata (now or in the next few years)...
