The Antec P150 Quiet PC Case Review

The Antec P150 Quiet PC Case is one of the latest cases in Antec's Performance 1 series and packs a mean punch for under $115. With a modular 430-Watt Neo HE power supply, sound-deadening panels, a selectable 3-speed 120mm case fan and good looks this case might be what you are searching for.

Hey, for asthetics, the P150 is behind only P180! Simple is sexy and I think that these are just some bad pics (IE: bad lighting) ...the brushed aluminum front is great. Although I do wish that it was brushed aluminum throughout, rather than iPod white on sides and top, but it still looks pretty sharp to me ;) :)

While it is not 100% my style, I still think it looks pretty good for those who like the apple-ish look, or just want to mock Mac's.

I need a 'quiet as possible' PC for music production :-({|= .
I am going to be installing a Gigabyte Silentpipe Graphics card and an Athlon64 3700 with an Artic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro.

I am thinking of buying either an Antec Sonata II, Antec P150, Antec P180 or an Akasa Eclipse 62 case.

I couldn't care less about the looks :yikes: just as long as I can't hear it :-# .

Which Case/PSU would do the job best?

Welcome to the forums... I would say the Antec P150 would be a better choice over the Antec Sonata II. I've seen, but not used the P180, so I am not sure on that one or the Akasa.

Don't really like the white bland color and the interior design. If I was to buy from the list I would go for the P180 but I never seen that Akasa case. I like the interior layout of the Aerocool Coolview.

If that case wasn't white, I'd like it more.
