Evolved from the P180, the P182 is a mid-tower computer case from Antec. Built to strike a balance between performance, style and cost, the case is split into two sections for the best thermal distribution: the bottom section for the heat-sensitive power supply and additional drives, and a top section for the majority of hotter components. The P182 contains many features such as removable drive cages for easy drive mounting, rails for easy installation / removal of optical and main drives, sound dampening on the walls of the case, pre-drilled holes for a water cooling system's reservoir, dust filters on the front intakes, and good cable management to allow hot components better access to fresh air. While the case does have setbacks, such as poor intake due to a great deal of physical obstruction, it remains quite popular amonst modders, gamers, and fans of silent computing. For those uninterested in modifying or investing in fans, the P182 comes with 3 preinstalled Antec Tri-Cool fans with 3 different speed settings.
