Pros: I don't actually own this case, but I do know watercooling. This is not worth your money, don't get it. Read below.

Cons: Second rate EVERYTHING... pump... radiator... block...

Other Thoughts: If you're considering water cooling, look elsewhere. You will get more bang for your buck if you at the very least go with the Swiftech H20-220 kit, with the MCP655/MCR220 etc etc, this is using the "poorman's" waterkit. NOT WORTH IT.

4 out of 5 eggsnice case, little flaws

Pros: Most quite case I've owned. aesthetics-very clean looking, (I own the black case). Pushes air through nicely. Bottom hard drives is fantastic with rubber mounts and a place for a fan. Strong case, doesn't look easy to break. (besides the front swing door for bays) 5 places for 120mm fans *glee*. Front door hing works great. I'd say, the perfect case for a htpc that wants to do more then just watch tv.

Cons: Their our a couple con's that go with just the limits of the case itself. Its a its going to be tight, Not a con seeing as you know your buying a mid-tower.The top hard drive bay can only fit 1 hard drive if your running a 8800's card (length of the card runs close to the back of the hard drive cage)Also wont allow for the 2nd fan that insalls on the back of the hard drive cage. This ofcourse is a "mid-tower case" so I figured this would be a problem. Its also very heavy (thickening of the side panels = weight)maybe not good for lan party carry around (or don't be a wuse)? The only real con is the hoses set up and power supply. From the waterpump to the res tank its tight and hard to find a place for the lines to go if you running 8800 video card, let alone 2. modular power supplys are two long, they work, but I have mine raised and it sitting on the water pump because of its length.

Other Thoughts: I know the cons seem longer then the pros....but honestly, this is a great case...main problems our because its a mid tower...which I don't see as a design flaw....I love this case so far, and the water cooling works great!!!! Easy to setup, never had a problem. I'd say the case is mid 4-5 star!!

3 out of 5 eggsSwiftech Quiet Power Case

Pros: The Antec p180 case Swiftech uses is well built. the fans are the most quiet case fans I've owned, it comes with three all with low medium and high settings. the sides are a plastic with foam in the middle to dampen sound. All around good water cooling system installed. new Norprene tubing claims to be 5 times less porous than silicon or vinyl. Comes with smart coils to prevent crimps in the lines.

Cons: Did NOT come with a water block. I tried to call technical support on that was located on the swiftech direction sheet that came with the case and I got an IHOP in southern California, not cool. I thought of RMAing it but decided to invest in the new GTX instead of waiting for a new case. Also the case did not have the Swiftech Quiet and Cool case logo on it, rather just the Antec logo. Doesn't bother me but I think its worth mentioning. I bought this case knowing the motherboard was going to be a tight fit, but the power supply is also going to be tight as well. Bad location for the pump but it worked out fine.

Other Thoughts: Unlike the picture mine came with green smart coils. No points off just worth mentioning for the picky ones since the color of them might be completely up in the air. I'm very happy with it, but forgeting to put in the box that contains the waterblock inside the case just boggles my mind. I got a better one anyhow. Otherwise it wouldve got a 4 or even a 5.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Solid material & construction. Case design by itself is good. Good attempt on the integrated Swiftech cooling. Quiet, if everything installed correctly (according to sound judgment and not the manual.)

Cons: Poor location of the pump; modular PSU is difficult to install and if it sits on the pump, noise level increases to an unacceptable level. Swiftech manuals are aweful and with 3 incorrect instructions. Standard ATX MoBo is too tight to fit around the coolant tubes already preinstalled.

Other Thoughts: For the price, it's not a good value. I also installed 2 Swiftech VGA waterblocks in SLi mode. The lowest PCI-E slot (ASUS: P5N32-E SLi) is too close to the bottom case railing. It took me 3 days to get everything installed. Once working however, the overall resutl is good; Antec, despite its usually good reputation on case designs. This model needs serious improvments for it to justify the $400 price.

5 out of 5 eggsresponse

Pros: I'm sorry, i don't know what you're talking about a "flimsy" front panel. the door is supposed to release at the hinge so that it can open completely to the other side of the case, that doesn't mean it "breaks". I've moved mine around plenty of times and the front has never been damaged. And yes, it is a big case, so don't expect to fit it into tight spaces. You don't expect a porsche to do well in the mud, so don't expect this case to be small.

Cons: none, it's awesome!

Other Thoughts: I didn't mean to sound mean or anything, just wanted to point some things out, so no offense. I originally thought the front "broke" too, until i looked at the hinge close up.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat internal design, poor front panel quality.

Pros: Antec has created another good case with the P180. Its smart design really puts above the average case. The main compartment is divided in two (the upper one for the mobo and lower one for the power unit and hard drives). Although I don't have the cooling system, the regular case comes installed with three, 120 mm. fans. So the fact that the power unit is on the bottom helps to prevent the heat mixture between the upper and lower levels. It also has a nice front panel with 2 USB ports, 1 FireWire, and media plugs (mic, headphone, in-line). It has a lock to prevent turning on the machine. Its design is sobber but attractive. A good gamer's choice! Especially if you pair it up with an Asus P5W DH Deluxe and a pair of ATI CrossFire video cards!

Cons: Its front panel is extremely flimsy--typical of Antec! I can't understand why a company that prides itself on excellent designs ALWAYS skimps out on the front panel quality. If yours comes intact on arrival consider yourself lucky beyond belief! I've owned three Antec cases and ALL have arrived with a broken tab on the front panel, which makes it somewhat lose. Don't even think of picking up this unit from the front panel--not even from the bottom handle. You'll end up breaking it completely.
Also, the case comes with a wierd fan guard on top that makes it impossible to fit in tight spaces. I had to remove it so it'd fit in my desk. Finally, the space provided for the power unit is very tight. Be careful if you put a large power unit. I installed an 850 W unit and it barely fit--I had to play around with the middle fan a lot to make it fit.

Other Thoughts: Overall, this is a good case despite the poor quality of its front panel. I'm not sure if the extra (extra!) expense for the water cooling system is even worth it. The fans, operated at low speeds, are very quiet and effective. I installed a total of 6, 12 cm. fans (including the CPU one) and I can barely hear it. With those 6 fans (and a great heat sink from coolmaster) my Intel Core Duo 6600 runs at an average of 45 degrees C--30% overclocked!
