I have the privilege of reviewing the Antec P380, part of their Performance One Series of computer cases. The Antec P380 is able to accommodate large SSI CEB and E-ATX motherboards, which makes the Antec P380 ideal for those looking to build a workstation PC, or a power-house SLI / Crossfire gaming rig.

In this article for Benchmark Reviews, I’ll be testing the Antec P380 full-tower ‘Performance’ computer case. The aesthetics of Antec’s P380 are a bit different than other cases, utilizing aluminum plates on the front and top of the chassis to give the P380 a very stylish look. The Antec P380 features a versatile front USB hub that can be mounted to face either the right or left side of the chassis, allowing users the freedom to place the P380 however they want. The power and reset buttons of the Antec P380 have thoughtfully been set to both sides of the chassis recessed behind the front aluminum plate, making it easy to turn on your computer from either side of the case.


For those not familiar with Antec, they have been in business since 1986, and make a variety of computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and DIY markets. I have personally owned the Sonata and 900 Gaming series cases, and have been happy with the quality and longevity of their products. My 900 series case is still in use on a secondary computer.
