Video Review #1291 Summary

Sponsored by: Antec
Review category: Cases
Manufacturer info: More info

The Antec P280 Case is the perfect option for a quiet computer build. With acoustic dampening material inside, this case will reduce any computer noise to a minimum. The overall design, build quality and styling is great and it's not going to break the bank. There's lots of drive bays, fans, cable management and much more.

Thanks for the great video, however I do have one quick question: can this fit a Sapphire 7970 Ghz edition that is 14.8" in length?

Thank you again!

I've gotten to see one of these in action. It really is one of the quietest cases I've seen and the airflow is also impressive. I love Antec Performance Series and can't wait till the largest one comes back in stock on Newegg.

how about actually putting components inside the case before you call it good? All your videos have absolutely no computer parts put in the case. Piece of crap cases get rave reviews here because you dont do anything but look at the case. dont call these videos reviews if all your gonna do is talk about what can be easily found on the case's website.

Have you ever looked at video reviews back in the 500s? 300s?

Follow the trend. :)

Yes H100 will fit in this case, fans fitted to exhaust air through the radiator. I have just completed a intel 3930k / sabertooth mobo / 32 gig ram. I replaced std corsair fans with x2 Akasa Apache fans - the case is super quiet even with side panel off!! Yes it is Kick-ass!

Nice review!
1. Will aCorsair HC100 dual water cooler fit in the P280 case?
2. Which direstion should the fans blow?

Thanks, John

I do like the computer case but I'd rather take the top two fans out and put in an acoustic dampening inside the top of the case.

Other than that, I think this is a very good computer case for gaming.

I currently have a P182 that I purchased based on one of your old reviews. So is this basically Antec's next version of the good old 182? I'm very pleased with the 182, but this may be a candidate for my next build. I was planning to just reuse the 182.

hey ya forgot to mention that 2 more fans can be installed.
on the hdd cage to get airflow to graphics card.
