The white version of antec mini p180 was clearanced @newegg last week for $79.99 free ship. It's a bit heavy for carriyng around to lans though. Here's a quick look of how mine ended up.

Wow, great work :up:. Do you have a shot of the front? I'm curious to see how that optical drive works in with the case.

who knew antec could make a tiny case that is better suited for watercooling than their full tower sized cases :shrug: :up:

its only better than certainly designed full tower cases... the 180mini is damned small. imagine fitting a more complex loop w/ res/triple rad/gpu. forget about it

White tubing is realy nice! I'm thinking about using it in my case too.
Looks kinda cute how all the cool hardware fits in such a small case ;)

Wow that looks great Nemesis, just such overall excellence. It seems like the case was made for builds using i7 micro-ATX boards :D.

Nemesis, do you think u could mount another 220 rad up top if u only ran one set of fans on each rads? im sure i could get 2 pumps just wondering about the rad space on top.

I love seeing this smaller builds. Im sick of these massive MM builds (even though a lot of them are incredible!)
I guess I just prefer a clean, simple, and compact build over a massive, bulky, and "lightshow" build lol.

Anyways, nice work.

Why do you have two sli bridges for your 280's? I thought you only need 1 bridge?

i guess because all the other boards connect two so I decided to since I have extra available. Note the motherboard only shipped with one.

very nice. Why did you sacrifice 2 fans when you rebuilt it with the GTZ and MCP355? Are temps better vs the apogee + pump combo drive.

Yes another rad will easily fit up top but only one 120mm would truly be pulling air from outside.

Now I'm using an Apogee GT with i7 mount, MCP350, and same reservoir. The temps are about the same +/- 3'c using two less fans. Have the fans in the front of the rad pushing air really creates alot of noise so I removed them. Noise to temp ratio decision.

hey The Nemesis, where are you hiding your Hard drive? seeing as how you took out the drive cages? was it easy to fit the 2x120 in there?

I used a 3.5 to 5.25 hard drive adaptor and placed it on bottom under cd-rom. Yes it was easy to fit the 2 X 120 radiator, this one is taller due to built in reservoir but a Thermochill PA120.2 fits too. I'm gonna change it again to the MCR220-QP & MCRes-Micro. I have two HD4850's in there now so it will fit.


This new look was very nice!

Thank You

I post a pic up of how it looks now and again after yet another refit:)

with a mcr 220, can you put the top 5.25" back in? i was interested in getting this case, and possibly water cooling it like how you have, but i have 1 hard drive, 1 cd/dvd read/write, 1 blu-ray, and a 5.25" fan controller... so you can see that i would be running out of room... would you be able to fit that top one back in with an mcr 220? whats the clearange from the psu plate to the bottom of the 5.25" cage?

thanks!

Hey Nemesis I really like how your Antec Mini p180 turned out. Wondering if one can add a triple radiator to the top area, I understand I would have to cut it and add a rad grill. Maybe a XSPC 240 rad standing up right like yours along with a XSPX 360 rad for the top section? Would it fit? Also are those regular 120x25mm fans or 38mm you have on yours?
