Unfortunately, there are a few shall we say mishaps in (at least) this revision of the case that will affect your ability to build a system with it (but probably won't affect the system once it's built):
One, to hook up the USB3 plug in front, you pull a cable all the way through the case, out through a hole in the back, and plug it into a regular USB3 port on the mainboard in the rear. I am guessing there was no reliable spec for mainboard USB3 headers when the case was made, but huh, this looks seriously ugly. Especially as the cable is too short to usefully route next to the main board tray.
Two, if you have a very long video card, you won't be able to use the top 2.5" HDD cage. I had to get a set of 2.5->3.5" conversion brackets in order to mount this system's SSD in the lower drive cage. That was a bit disappointing, but I was waiting for some other components at the time anyway, so no time lost. If you are considering putting an SSD and a long video card into this case though, better get some brackets as well.
Three, the cable-routing partition behind the mainboard tray is very very narrow. The Antec CP-850 850 Watt CPX Power Supply Unit's cables do fit there, but when a few of them are in there, it's hard and fiddly to close the case.
Like I said above, these problems affected me only when building the system. Now that it's fully assembled, I'm happy as can be.Read more ›
Excellent sound dampening, ventilation and cable management. Pair it up with the CP-850 power supply.
After putting the work getting all my cables routed and tucked cleanly inside the case, I encounter Antec's vision for a USB3 front-panel connector...the other side of this cable needs to be routed out the back from the lower part of the case and into one of the rear *external* USB3 connectors.
To me that was a complete head-scratcher: Antec targets the silence and functionally-obsessed, and offers this completely separate model of the P183 specifically with a front-panel USB3, yet goes rookie with a cable mouse-tail out the back of the case and over all my audio/video connectors, taking up one of ony two rear USB3's, while the motherboard's header lies unused. The offending cable will interfere for the life of my case. A bit of a speechless moment right there...like Beethoven ending a great Symphony with loud flatulence.
There's some gizmo from a different company that can be purchased to convert the internal USB header into the external kind and somehow keep this cable inside but c'mon.
As others have mentioned, there is no USB 3.0 header, so in order to make use of the front USB 3.0 port, you must drag a USB 3.0 cable with the A Male plug straight out the back of the case onto one of the motherboard's external port. This is possibly the most inelegant thing I've seen in years.
Minus 0.5 star.
The v183v3 places its PSU on the bottom, and relies on power cables to be routed behind the motherboard. This is not an entirely new concept, and it's perfectly fine. Unfortunately, cable management is less than ideal, as they force all cables through a 1" choke point in the middle of the case, which forces all cables to *not* take a direct path. Most other cases have a wide-open area under the motherboard for direct runs. This resulted in the CPU power (P4/8pin) cord from an OCZ Modular 700W PSU not reaching, and I had to buy an extension cable.
Minus 0.5 star.
Once I moved on to install the 2 SSD's, I found that the SSD's would only fit in the center 2x3.5" hard drive cage, as the other 4x3.5" slots were designed to only mount drives from the side. For some strange reason, Antec only included 4 screws for 2.5" drives, so I was forced to install 2 SSD's with 2 screws each. I can't use regular screws, as I have to use the extra-long screws that are compatible with their silicone dampers, which are really unnecessary, as SSD's have no rotational parts.

Always great cases. I always buy Antec. This is the second one I've gotten. While same model, the one I got 2 years ago had more cabling. Still a great case.Published 2 months ago by Steven J Cotellesse

plenty of room to build a high end SLI setup, very quiet. My second case (needed this for the USB3.0 fronts). I added a fan in the front (noctua) and that's plenty of air flow.Published 12 months ago by G. Brown
Gen 3 of my favorite case model. Looks sleek, no flashy LED's. Simple, clean, functional.Published 21 months ago by Joshua D Weeks
I had to return this case as it was grey and I wanted a black one. (quest the color before you buy)
However this is a real nice case.
