Antec P380 Chassis Review

Features

from Antec’s Website:

 

EASY TO BUILD WITH, EASY TO COOL

No tools, no problem. The P380’s tool-less design makes sure your install goes with ease. System builds should be straightforward and easy. Easy access for installs and upgrades are just the beginning. Add state-of-the-art liquid cooling to maximize your system.

CONVENIENT SWITCHABLE I/O PANEL

Have your computer on the left or right. To the P380, it doesn’t matter. With a built-in convenient switchable I/O panel, the P380 allows you to choose where to place your computer, not the other way around.

TRIMMING THE FAT

Don’t get trapped in the world of inadequate features. We removed all 5.25 drive bays. Why? Simply because you don’t need them. Allowing the P380 to stand out with a full aluminum front and top bezel. Be the first to bold. The minimalistic design shows sophistication amongst your peers.

INSTALLATION

Eight total 3.5”/2.5” tool-less HDD bays lets you install new drives with ease, just pop them in tray and slide them back to the drive bays.

BUILT FOR BUSINESS

Silent enough for professional sound studios, robust enough for the most hardcore gamers, the P380 is designed to handle it all. With expansion slots for up to 4xGPUs, the P380 lacks in no department.

EXCELLENT AIR COOLING

Three 120mm or two 140mm front intake fan mounts quietly pushing vast amounts of air over your hard drives and video cards. Comes with two pre-installed 140mm FDB fans and can be replaced with three 120mm fans if you choose to. And if you want to maximize your cooling configuration, the top mounts are able to support water cooling radiators up to 360mm. The air is then exhausted by the pre-installed 120mm FDB rear exhaust fan, quietly dissipating heat.

MAINTENANCE

Keeping your components dust free is key to a long lasting system. The P380 offers one front filter and another dedicated filter for your PSU. Both are easily removable making maintenance hassle-free.
