In the year of their 31st 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 award-winning Antec Performance One Series: the Antec P8. The case is now commercially available from 79€ (suggested retail price including VAT).

The P8 offers stylish design, excellent cooling performance and great features. The mid-tower measures 443 mm x 210 mm x 470 mm (height x width x depth) and is compatible with micro-ATX / ATX/ ITX motherboards and supports up to 390 mm VGA cards. The case boasts two convertible tool-less 2.5" / 3.5" HDD drive cages, four 2.5" SSD drive cages as well as seven expansion slots. The chassis is made of steel / ABS and an attractive tempered glass side panel offer great insight into the installed components. The chassis features a PSU chamber to isolate the PSU from the other components and to minimize heat production and system noise.



In order to keep its cool, the P8 offers space for 3x120mm or 2x140mm case fans in the front, 3x120mm or 2x140mm at the top and 1x120mm fan in the rear. The thought-out case already comes with two pre-installed 120 mm white LED fans at the front and one pre-installed 120 white LED fan in the back. For extra water-cooling, the P8 allows to install a 240 mm radiator on top (limited), a 360 mm radiator in the front and a 120 mm radiator in the rear.

The elegant front bezel offers access to HD audio jacks, two USB 3.0 ports, Power and reset and a white glowing Antec logo at the front of case, and last but not least, three washable dust filters on the front, top and bottom of this compact mid-tower.

Why no one has silenced bloody case tops? No vendor ever actually tried how loud fans are like this on top? Why no one silences the top the way they do front? I just don't get it!?

Probably because a minority of users actually use the top fan mounts. Fractal's solution with noise-blocking vent covers is a good stopgap solution, although I do agree that a better solution is possible for those who actually want to use these vents. It would indeed be interesting to see something akin to the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv series, only with sound dampening in the top chamber (and some bigger vents - apparently those top vents are far, far too restrictive).

As for the case, I too am happy to see Antec finally catching up with the needs of current PC builders. 8+ fixed HDD cages are neither necessary nor desirable in the average enthusiast desktop in 2017, and their lack of radiator support has been depressing. Now, please bring some of this to the noise insulated series, please.

"Minority of users" And then I see literally everyone mounting radiators on top, be it standard or AiO loops. Which one is it?

Considering most cases can't actually fit top rads, I find that difficult to believe. Admittedly, it's becoming more common with the commoditization of AIOs, but those are still for a minority of builders.

What is with the cheap top dust filter? On a $59 case it's acceptable; on a $99 case it's tacky. At least Antec stopped placing punch out PCI slot covers on cases under $100.
