Antec P183 v3

Installation in most aspects of this case was pretty straight forward. The motherboard tray isn’t the largest out there so those with dual chip systems will be out of luck. Those with large GPUs will find the need to remove the top HDD cage I think, but its dependant on which card you have and how much wiggling you mind doing to mount it.

As far as ODDs go, you utilise the bundled drive rails. This does mean you’ll have to break out a screwdriver I’m afraid. However, once attached you can slide them in and out without any more effort, so its better than just some screws in the side, but its hardly sophisticated.

PCI cards are the same, requiring a simple screw through the top. These are nice and strong, but I think the P183 is in need of a v4, where we see some tooless install clips.
