Antec P100 Case Review

Antec P100 Review

Introduction

Like most manufacturers, Antec produce a range of cases.  Some are designed for the all-out gamer, some for the low power user, some for the SFF builder, and some, like the P100, for the enthusiast who is looking to put together a PC where a low sonic signature is of prime concern.  The P100 is the newest member of the “Performance One” series and is currently only available in Black.  Other members of the Performance One series, such as the P280 are available in white, and with a window, so perhaps we might see the range extended if I proves successful for the company.

In simple terms what we have with the P100 is what we see in a great many “Silent” cases on the market today.  The P100 offers a sleek uncomplicated exterior, with the high gloss metal effect front panel adding a hint of class, foam padding to interior panels which is aimed to reduce vibration, and decent accommodation inside.  The Devil though, as we all know, is in the detail, and with a fair amount of competition out there for King of the silent case hill, the P100 is going to have to deport itself well.
