Antec P280 Gun Metal Mid Tower Case
Sophisticated and cutting-edge, the P280 emphasizes the ease of use, quiet technology and unparalleled performance characteristic of Antec's Performance One series. This advanced enclosure comes equipped with features that will maximize your PC experience, from Quiet Computing™ panels & HDD drive bays, to grommet-lined cable routing holes with ample space behind the motherboard tray. The P280 accommodates motherboards up to XL-ATX and includes nine expansion slots to support up to four 13.0" / 330 mm graphics cards. And with convenient tool-less optical drive bays, easy-access front & bottom PSU intake air filters, two front panel USB 3.0 ports and an affordable price, you get an elite enclosure that will last you for builds to come. Features Expandable for Maximum Performance
The enclosure of the P280 has customizable features for all builds to maximize your PC experience. The P280 houses nine expansion slots and space for an XL-ATX measurement motherboard (10.3 inches by 13.6 inches). The chassis also supports Standard ATX, microATX, and Mini-ITX motherboards.
In addition, the P280 supports graphics cards up to 13 inches (330 millimeters) long within a quadruple graphics card setup, so you can create what you want in one system. The P280 has three tool-less 5.25-inch drive bays--simply depress the front release lever and slide the drive out for easy access. There are also two 2.5-inch and six 3.5-inch drive bays inside the chassis.
Multiple Filters Increase Airflow
Quick, convenient maintenance is possible with two filters in place: one PSU air intake filter and one front air intake filter. These removable, washable air filters are located behind the triple-layer front bezel, and facilitate the conservation of clean builds for optimal airflow and cooling performance.
Gaming Made Cool Through Multi-Fan System
An intensive cooling network is essential for optimal performance, which is why the P280 contains two 120-millimeter top TwoCool exhaust fans, one 120-millimeter rear TwoCool exhaust fan, and four fan mounts for optional 120-millimeter internal intake fans and 120-millimeter front intake fans. The mounts are positioned strategically to keep all your gaming components operating efficiently.
The cooling system of the P280 also comes equipped with a convenient fan power hub, which allows you to connect four 3-pin fans to a single Molex for improved cable management, and additional water cooling support in the form of rear water cooling grommets, which assist in further heat management.
Accommodates Variety of Builds
An enlarged CPU cutout makes a range of motherboard designs accessible, and with convenient tool-less optical drive bays, easy-access front and bottom PSU intake air filters, and four front-panel USB ports (two USB 3.0), you get an expansive and easy-to-use enclosure that will last you for builds to come.
The P280 makes gaming the priority, rather than maintenance. Rubber grommet-lined holes are strategically placed around the chassis for convenient cable routing. There's also enough room behind the motherboard tray to accommodate 24-pin power cables.

There's more choice than ever before, but which computer case is right for you and which features should you look out for?
Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008
The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

Watercooling for the PC has been around for years in some form or another, for at least as long as Scan have been in business, with basic physics defining why you want to use it. That means for air cooling, to cope with increasing temperature in the heatsink you need to move the air across it faster. That is why thermostatically controlled fans in your PC will turn faster the hotter something gets.
