Antec Announces the P82 Flow Chassis

In the year of their 33rd anniversary, Antec Inc., a leading provider of high-performance computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself market, presents the latest mid tower of their Antec Performance Series: the Antec P82 Flow. The case is now commercially available from 69,99€ (suggested retail price including VAT).

The Antec Performance P82 Flow Mid-Tower computer case is the evolution of P8, keeping clean lines and the interior around performance. With the new appearance in minimalism, the P82 Flow is embellished with a white LED power-on light and stripe design of rich ventilation on the front panel, including three 140 mm white-blade fans in the front and a 140 mm white-blade fan in the rear, creating a more powerful, efficient, easy to build and cool system.
The mid-tower measures 454 mm x 215 mm x 480 mm (DxWxH) and is compatible with ATX, M-ATX and ITX motherboards and supports up to 380 mm VGA cards. The case boasts two convertible tool-less 2.5" / 3.5" HDD drive cages, two 2.5" SSD mounting space as well as seven expansion slots. Removable 3.5" HDD cages can free more space for cable management.

The movable 2.5" SSD rack can accommodate two 2.5" SSDs. It also can be installed at the internal or external side of the motherboard tray according to your personal needs. The chassis offers an attractive tempered glass side panel offer great insight into the installed components. The absence of thumbscrew holes in the tempered glass ensures a stable quality.

In order to keep its cool, the P82 Flow offers space for 3x 120 mm or 3x 140 mm case fans in the front, 3x 120 mm or 2x 140 mm at the top and 1x 120 mm or 140 mm fan in the rear. The P82 Flow also includes three 140 mm white-blade fans in the front and a 140 mm white-blade fan in the rear. This case is ready to provide high airflow for your setup. For extra water-cooling, the P82 Flow allows to install a 240 mm radiator on top, a 360 mm radiator in the front and a 140 mm radiator in the rear.

The front bezel offers access to audio jacks, two USB 3.0 ports, Power and reset button, and last but not least, three washable dust filters on the front, top and bottom of this compact mid-tower.

Finally a mid tower case that can accept 140MM fans in all ports. I also like the height of the "feet". If the front is mesh I would love to see how thermals are in this with all 140MM fans stock. At $70 (likely $90 Canadian) it is not bad if it can perform. Will we be seeing a review from TPU?

Antec is stuck in some 24 month old trend loop.
P is silent series, but that does not mean they can't even use front side-vents.

Cmon Antec....

I'm thinking that front panel looks real close to mesh but the pics just dont make it clear enough. If its not mesh-like, I agree.

the front is not mesh but rather closed with air slits on top and the bottom (think Phanteks P400S)

Another large case with space for only two traditional hard drives. Fail.

It's 2020 already, not everyone needs ATX either.

The median number of PCIe cards used per enthusiast-grade PC is one.
The median number of RAM sticks used per enthusiast-grade PC is two.
The median number of AIO radiators used per enthusiast-grade PC is zero.

I consider myself as an enthusiast with an EATX case.

PCIe cards = 5
RAM = 4 sticks
AIO as an enthusiast? Nope.

SSDs are for enthusiasts. Going to get rid of the last HDD ASAP.

I really wish 4TB SSDs were priced better. My wish is pure NVME and SSD but I need something to replace my 5TB HDD.

I also consider myself as an (slightly advanced) enthusiast, so...

PCIe cards = 4

AIO as an enthusiast ? Yeppers

I got rid of all internal spinners way back when SSD's came out, and then got rid of all SSD's when nvme sticks came out, although I still have an external 8TB (soon to be 14TB) spinner for back-up & file storage...
