ya. but I don't know if the case really NEEDS long cables. if you think about the psu will will be closer to the hard drive bay, gpu power, motherboard power is in the middle so I wouldn't think that would be a big deal. If you mounted your ROM drives in the lower bays they would be close...... ??? What do you all think?

I just purchased my system and went with the cooler master 534.
I didnt think it was worth spending that much.
I just bought some really good silent case fans for like 6 bucks. They were yate loons.

P180 would be a good Quiet computer case.

Another reason I wanted a new case is because in late december I will be building a computer with a 8 (or 9 ) series video card. I know for a fact it won't fit in my current case.

I want to go for a ultra silent comp. So I wanted the p180 because of the fan on the gpu and hard drives also make noise.
