I interviewed Antec at CES in January....I'd have to say the Sonata II and their new flagship, the P-180 are going to be awesome. I will talk to them today about a release time and post it here when I hear from them.

They are shooting for a end of April ship date for the P180, barring any problems.

The P180 appears to be my next case, I might even put a Phantom 500 in, since airflow is not going to be an issue with that case.

I said I would not spend a dime on any more parts for my computer with my tax return.....but, I lied.
I will be buying the [url=http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=11-133-143&depa=1]
Thermaltake SHARK Black ATX Full Tower Case, Model "VA7000BWA" -RETAIL[/url] from newegg as soon as I get the money. I saw it for display at the local pc shop for $179.99. It's got two 120mm fans, one in the front and back and also the side-panel has two huge vents/wholes for movig cool air inside the case, 5 HDD trays, removable mobo tray and the best part?, an all aluminum chasis.

If you are looking at the Shark act quickly. Newegg has a $40 MIR (I hate these) but the receipt must be dated by March 20th.

I am definitely getting the P180 for my new computer. It sucks because I have the X800XL just sitting there waiting to be used, now I have to wait.

Buy an SLK3000B, they are cheap, and have descent cooling.
