    As I've stated in many threads, I'm not one for a full ATX chassis. I'm a Shuttle fanboy and I'm starting to go towards mATX (maybe even DTX).

    Now, I haven't found many mATX chassis that are to my liking, can't stand the SilverStone SUGO 01...

    ... I prefer the 02 in black but something doesn't sit with me on this...

    ... the 03 isn't too bad but the aesthetics I'm slightly unsure about...

    ... the design, layout and work that has gone into that case is top rate and that alone should be enough, but it's not. SilverStone seem to be the only company that have made a really, extremely appealing mATX chassis (for me anyroad). Next up is the currently my favourite mATX chassis currently on the market and I haven't been able to find one that can beat it in looks, performance and price...

    ... until now!

    After my long winded introduction. Antec are planning on releasing a mATX version of the gorgeous P180. Again, I'm not one for full sized cases but the P180 is a stunning case. To hear that they are releasing a mATX version was something I couldn't keep to myself. So, for those of you that are looking for a new mATX case, this could be the one your after...

    Mini P180 Details

    212 x 436 x 435mm (W x D x H), compared with the original P180’s dimensions of 205 x 507 x 540mm (W x D x H), so it’s noticeably smaller. Also that's a 200mm fan at the top! ^^

    The picture explains the rest, I'm going to look for more info... I just thought this is probably old news. :shadedshu

    If not, enjoy!
    GLD says thanks.

    The mini Antec sure looks nice. That silver Silverstone (SST-TJ08) matx is way over priced imo. I have built 2 matx Athenatech's (A301BS.400) that pre date the Silverstone. Same case minus psu and different front bezel/side panel. I am a matx/cube fan myself. I just need to mod a PC P&C 470w Silencer in to my NSK1300 and it would be the perfect case. :rockout:

    GAH!

    Dial up is a lot like being choked, so thats the reason as to why I haven't replied...

    Chewy - I'll look into that once I can load it, sounds lush, I'll be surprised if I haven't seen it before....

    ... bloody 'ell! I like the look of that set up.... smooth! I really hate soddin' dial up - I will hopefully be able to afford broadband soon. The UK is a complete rip off for anything, especially broadband! >.<

    Oh yeah I have... I like that, doubt I'd be able to find that in the UK - I'll look once I have a decent net connection.

    Wow, that mini p-180 is super sweet! Honestly after my 900 I really don't like the psu on the botttom in regular ATX cases, however this case is short enough where it will work well and with the fan on top it's also going to be a cool little case.

    Is this a hoax? Antec has nothing on it

    The day after I buy a new case no less! I really like both the mini and the 1200. I think I may lay my s939 system out to pasture in that mini.:D

    That looks like a short SuperFlower case. That brings back some memories.

    I agree, that's why I got rid of mine. The side window looks awful.

    looks like some one finally realized that no one needs 5-10 5.25 bays. not bad for a matx case.

    Ah, I had heard about this before, but was wondering when Antec would show it. I guessed it would be at CES, and I was right. It looks amazing. Next time I come into some stupid amounts of money, I might be buying one for myself, along with a nice small mobo, based on a better chipset.
    Looks really good though, and might be small enough to sit atop my desk without interfering with my setup too much, unlike the full-sized one.

    Only thing I can say is that there's bound to be huge amounts of unused space at the front, unless they have two spaces for 120mm fans, in front of the HDD cages again.
