Antec p180 vs. Thermaltake ARMOR

Q: Antec p180 vs. Thermaltake ARMOR

I was trying to decide between a Antec p180 case or the Thermaltake ARMOR series casees.

Antec p180
Thermaltake Armor Series VA8000BWS

There was a issue I heard about the p180 of PSU's not reaching certain drives or even the motherboard. Does anyone have that problem with the p180?


So which would be better to get? both are about the same price. Trying to get the better quality :giddy:


Preferred Solution: Antec p180 vs. Thermaltake ARMOR

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Antec p180 vs. Thermaltake ARMOR

Personally, I`d go with the Thermaltake case, It seems to have better cooling.

I must admit however, that maybe I`m a bit biased. This may be due to the fact, that I have a Thermaltake Xaser III case. Not everyones cup of tea I know, but I love it.

Nice psu by the way.

Hi all,

Does anyone know of a PSU which will power the latest GPUs (Geforce GTX 280 - 6-pin and 8-pin connectors available) which would fit in my Antex P180 case?

Dimension: Standard ATX PS2 150 x 140 x 86 mm

Please help!!!


A:Antec P180 PSU

Any ATX PSU delivering at least 550W and 40A on the +12V rail(s) will run the GTX 280 and any other card just fine. I'd recommend the Corsair 650TX.

Can this case hold at least 4 harddrives?


The upper box in this photo looks like it can only hold 2, 3 most.
The lower one appears to be designed differently - so I'm not sure if it would work.

A:Antec Performance One P180

looks like it may hold even more than 4... if the bottom slide out frame thing is 4 x 3.5" bays (sideways?) + 3 x 3.5" in the middle box + 2 (possibly 3) x 5.25" bays = 9??

Or i may be slightly wrong..

>>Maximum expandability with 11 Drive Bays

Hi All,

Finally all my lovely new things have arived (To help me build my first complete computer from scratch).

So, step one - mount the motherboard.....

Line up holes - Check
Change I/O shield - Check
Insert brass standoffs into case to mount motherboard onto - Urm, I need 9 and I only seem to have 3......

Anyone used an Antec P180 case before and found a secret hiding place for the standoffs? (The 3 I found were in a box with the air filter and case keys...)

I expect its just bad luck and I'll have to kick Antec *** but just in case I am being stupid....

Any ideas?

Just built my new gaming pc (more or less works, got some minor issues to sort out) and the case I went with was the antec p180, its a nice case and evrything but I was wondering if anyone knew where to get a spare side panel for it (checked antecs site and the only alternative is beige, looking for an exact replica). Just want to try and cut a side panel so I can see the innards and get some blue neon in there, and dont want to risk ruining the original case, so if i mess up ive got a back up. One more question, looking to upgrade it (im not that impatient that im upgrading a new pc after 3 weeks, i just didnt buy evrything when i bought most of the parts to bring the cost down) and was wondering whether 2nd hard drive (space isnt an issue, just for the performance boost really), another gig of RAM (got 1Gb already) or a soundcard (yet to get it working but at the mo integrated sound), i guess another option is speakers/headphones but they'll probs come after sound card, doesnt relli matter which as there all in the same price region, just wondering which will affect gaming performance most.

A:Antec P180 spare side panel

you want to marr a beautiful p180 side panel? perhaps you should return the case and get one with window, instead of messing with the expensive p180. if you do choose to proceed with the cuttage, i reccomend taking the side panel to a local machnists' shoip where they have tools and experience to cut metal perfectly. i have seen many an attempt at creating a side window from a solid panel, and the results were always far less than perfect.

I have this morning started assembly of a new PC in an Antec P180 case, all going well until I started to insert the motherboard to standoff screws. The only screws that are a) long enough and b) fit the thread of the standoff, have 'washers' fixed to them which seem to me much too great in diameter. They overlap conductor runs and in one instance would crush what look like chip capacitors.

The motherboard as Asus A8N-E. Am I doing something wrong? Please help me.

A:Antec P180 and Motherboard fixing screws

The mounting screws don't need washers, they can be just regular screws, as long as they only touch the metal ring around the motherboard holes. Mine are hex headed, and also have regular screwdriver grooves in the top.

Hey guys, do you know where I can get some standoffs for my Thermaltake armor case? I have looked everywhere I can think of but I can't find the right size, I got the case over 30 days ago so Thermaltake won't ship me replacement screws. I had to return my motherboard and accidently shipped my case screws with it If anyone has some extra standoffs about 7-8 Should be enough, I am willing to pay you via PayPal for them, or if you know an online store that sells them that would be great the standoffs are around 14mm in length.

I want to get 120mm Antec Tricool Blue LED fans to go with my Silverstone Temjin TJ09-BW case, cause the fans that come it with don't move much air. I like the Tricool 3 speed concept, this way i can adjust fan speed as needed. However, i've read a review that said that these fans work well only in Antec cases, i'm not sure what that means because that is all that was said on the subject. I'm curious ito know whether folks here tried these fans in non-Antec cases and how did they work out.

A:Antec Tricool fans only work well in Antec cases?

hi FP,

the case should not affect the operation of a case fan (unless the holes in the case are too small to allow adequate air flow, which would not allow any fan to perform well). the tricool fan should work well in many cases, not just an antec case. where did you read that review?

Can one of Y'all tell me what the ThermalTake GiantII GPU cooler wont fit?? my cap on $$ is like 150USD. my shopping will start with your advice.



That is on SICK cooler dude...here's some specs that I found:

"A universal clip helps insure compatibility with both nVidia based and ATI based video cards."

(1) The video cards without the heatsink mounting holes or with components that interfere with the heatsink cannot accommodate this product. (2) The heatsink occupies an adjacent PCI slot. (3) If the components on the video card interfere in any way with the heatsink components, you cannot use this heatsink. In such a case, you should immediately stop installation and return the product. (4) This heatsink if quite large at ~4.5" wide. It will add some height to the top of the video card when installed. In some thin cases such as the Casper II this may make it impossible to reinstall the video card. Make sure your case has space above the card slots before deciding to use this cooler.

It would be nice if ThermakTake listed known cards that simply don't work with it...

And here's a decent review link going over the finer points:


Hope this helps...let us know if you get it and how it works out...

Hi Deke---I have had the EZ Firewall and eTrust a/v package on a win98se machine for 3 weeks or so....no problems with anything.
I have checked the alert logs which are split into 3 categories, High, Medium and Low....the usual stuff shows that you always get when surfing. Nothing came through that I could tell. The logs say Blocked....there were the pop up alerts sometimes....I think only when the High was logged...but it was not too intrusive at all. I have done the online security scans, they all report "stealth" is working...no problems getting anywhere I want to, so I feel it is a good app.
EZ Firewall has good logging. The program has the usual learning mode which makes it fairly easy to start out.
The antivirus I have had no problems with, I kinda dont go out of my way to test them, so nothing has been caught by eTrust. Updates smoothly so far, not too often but then I don't check it every day, as that machine is turned off for days at a time.
I did have eTrust back before they went to subscription, for that whole year, had no virus problems....and, no catches. I always check with Symantec online, Panda, etc scanners, but nothing found that eTrust missed at any point.

I just upgraded my computer:
2X256 PC3200 DDR

OK, I installed all the hardware, and I have been having troubles getting past the start up, but that's another post. Anyway, after trying various things, my computer started to freeze all of a sudden when ever I use the manual rpm dial that comes with the Volcano. If I turn my cpu fan up any more than approx. 2500rpm which is the speed that it just barely starts to register in the bios, the computer freezes. It worked fine before, just all of a sudden it decided to start doing that. I have a 350W power supply, and little power demand. I haven't been able to get past start up due to other reasons, so I have only tested it while in the bios. Anyone know why this would start happening after it worked fine before? I spent all this money for an upgrade and I haven't even been able to get past start up....urgh! Errors on start up and now the fan, GRRRR. Thanks, for any help!:rolleyes:


A:Thermaltake Volcano

do you have the fan plugged into the motherboard for power, or are you using the molex adaptor and just running the yellow wire to the cpu fan connector? You might try the latter of the two, though I'm not sure if it will help.

Wanting a quiet computer, I replaced rather noisy default heatsink & fan on my Asus GeForce 6800XT with Thermaltake Schooner.

The installation took about an hour because the instructions were somewhat misleading, some of the screws were too long, and my hands are shaky. I got it installed properly nonetheless.

In my opinion, the performance is great for a completely passive cooler.

The manual says overclocking isn't recommended (of course), but I've overclocked core 20% and memory 10%, and unlocked 16 pipes and 5 shader units (default for the card is 8 pipes & 4 shaders).

This is what the temperatures look like after running 3DMark06 default test with the case closed:

Although the temperatures may seem high to some of you, the system is stable. GPUs can handle the temperature better than CPUs anyhow, from what I can tell.

Next I need to get rid of CPU and PSU fans, they're the only ones left.

A:Thermaltake Schooner

High temps are usually the main problem of fried (and ready to eat) boards. I suppose if the temps aren't much higher than with the stock cooler, you should be fine.

Coolermaster HAF 922 fan connections with motherboard and PSU

Hello Techspot,

I am going to move my current components into another case (Coolermaster HAF 922), which I am getting soon. I am also getting the Corsair TX850 watt v2 PSU.
I will be using my current components, which can be found on my profile + a 9800GT ( I will be later getting the AMD HD 6950).

My question is, how will I connect the case fans? Do I need to buy extra cable converters/reductions?
I have asked a similar question, but that was using a GA-990FXA-UD5 motherboard. The motherboard I use now is MSI 785GM-E51.

Thanks in advance.

Thermaltake has just released a new 120mm circular "flower" type cooler; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835106103
It's in the same vein as the Zalman 7700s and TT Blue Orb type cooler. But it has heatpipes. Right now I am using a Coolermaster Hyper L6. It is a heatpipe system, but the radiator fins all point in the same direction. Consequently it doesn't distribute air toward all the thermal zones and ICH the way I would like. Also with the new Intel "Quiet Technology" the BIOS never bothers to spin the fan (PWM control) faster than 600 RPM. The new TT cooler is so new it doesn't have but one review, although that's a 5 egger.
This is an intel DG965WH board (ATX)
An Antec 3800 "solution series" Mid-Tower case (w/ side air duct)
Celeron 356 (Cedar Mill 3.33GHz)

I don't actually have a heating problem, per se, But I think I could do better.

The new TT cooler has the standard Intel push clips, but I actually like them , they haven't given me any trouble whatsoever yet.

Take a look at the new cooler, and tell me what you think, please.

Just installed a Volcano 12. Great HS/Fan! Trouble is I accidentally connected the CPU heat sensor to the fan and the manual speed connector at the same time. After this I booted it for a minute or two. Then I realized the mistake (and the warning in the instructions). So I powered it down and disconnected the CPU heat sensor connector, and left the manual speed dial connected to the fan. Unfortunately, the dial for the fan doesn't control the speed of the fan (I treid both the 3.5" and the PCI-slot manual dials and nothing will slow down the fan speed. It just spins at max (5500 RPM). It cools great but I'd like to turn it down a bit because of the noise.

Did I fry the dials (or the potentiometers inside) when I had both types of speed controls connected to the fan at once? I've emailed Thermaltake the same question. Anyone have any experience here? TIA

As I posted in the general hardware thread, I am building a computer and need some help deciding where to place the case fans. The case is a Thermaltake V3, it has a bottom mounted PSU, 2 top fan spaces, 1 bottom fan space, 1 front fan space, and one upper-rear fan space. All are 120mm. The PC isn't going to be doing anything that should make it real hot but I want to make sure its well cooled. I was thinking of just putting a front and rear, but will the spaces in the top and bottom cause circulation issues without fans installed there? I'm building a new pc because my current notebook is failing because the graphics card overheats quickly..so I'm a little paranoid about keeping things cool. :suspiciou

A:Help with fan placement in Thermaltake V3

Fans are comparatively cheap, and I err on the side of more airflow is better so i would say fill all of the available fan spaces, or put one more exhausting air than pulling it in for a negative airflow. Its a bit more dusty, but gets more air through the system.

I have had a Thermaltake Bigwater SE that I have had sitting in the box in the basement for over a year now. Problem is, I have been having troubles finding a case that it will fit in, I have built several systems that consist of a 120mm rear fan however the radiator housing has not fit into any of them, there is just not enough top/bottom clearance for it to fit. Most of the cases have been Cooler Master mid-towers, however i have tried some other brands that I cant remember....Well and a Antec 900 which is on the large side for being a mid-tower. I am pretty sure that maybe a thermaltake case should house its own product, but I really dont want to take the chance of ordering one and not have it fit. (big PIA and expensive to RMA a case)

So I was wondering if anyone has this water cooler in a mid-tower ? What brand and model would be....

Thanks In ADVANCE....

I just purchased a Thermaltake Xaser V Gaming Tower model V7420AU. For the life of me I can't figure out how to hook up the fans. There are a number of wires. Power, 2 prong connectors, one wire named signal. I am using an ASUS A7N8X-E motherboard. If anyone knows an efficient way to hook these wires up please let me know.

A:Need help with Thermaltake case

Your motherboard should come with a manual that tells you where to plug each connector in. Some of those fans may be four pin connectors, which will be connected to your PS. Others will plug into extra system fan connecters the motherboard has scattered around the board. The Power, signal, speaker, HDD LED, Reset, etc etc connectors will connect in a certain sequence on two rows of "little wire things" on your motherboard. Again, your motherboard should have a manual that shows these.

If it doesn't, try going to Asus's website for an online manual.

Last week, after a marathon 5 HOUR support session with an outsourced Norton Expert, I decided to dump 360 and go with something that demanded less of my resources. I installed Avast, which seems to be working just fine, and then tried Online Armor.

The installation went fine and I was prepared to be happy with my newly invigorated computer. Then I allowed it to restart and go into "learning mode". Big mistake.

It rebooted, but that's about all. The familiar desk top picture was there but no icons. I tried two more time and still nothing, so I rebooted into safe mode and chose the last configuration that worked. Thankfully it did, but after two more attempts with the same results, I'm going to try for some advice here before making another attempt.

What am I doing wrong. I know it has to be me because software is NEVER buggy and always works the first time. Could it have something to do with Avast? I told it to trust whatever was on the computer. Was that a mistake?

I don't want to go back to Norton. He's mean to me and makes my life miserable.

Hi there,I suggest that you post in the Other Emsisoft products section of the Emsisoft Support Forum. The staff will walk you through detailed instructions on how to uninstall Online Armor.In terms of replacement firewalls, HIPS firewalls are rare and usually unnecessary - so using the Windows Firewall from 7 and later is sufficient for home user security.

The end of Online Armor is coming but will be replace by Emsisoft Internet Security.

The Emsisoft Online Armor product has been an integral part of our product portfolio for almost five years. It served us and our customers very well in complementing Emsisoft Anti-Malware with a rock solid standalone firewall. Emsisoft Online Armorís biggest strength has always been its HIPS (Host based Intrusion Protection/Prevention System) components, which are meant to alert any potentially dangerous actions executed by programs on the operating system.

As the internet threat landscape changes over the years, our response to these new challenges needs to adapt as well. Security software needs to be even more powerful, yet less intrusive to avoid any unnecessary annoying alerts. Thatís why we at Emsisoft believe that a smart Behavior Blocker, as incorporated in Emsisoft Anti-Malware and Emsisoft Internet Security, that watches the system as a whole, is significantly better than a HIPS, which sees each action on the system individually and therefore always causes much more alert popups by design. You can read more about the differences in this article.

For the above reason, we have decided to not spend any more development time on Emsisoft Online Armor, but instead focus on improving the award-winning protection of Emsisoft Anti-Malware and Emsisoft Internet Security, which we are certain have a great fut... Read more

Mainly for information.
Reading on these boards that my ZoneAlarm firewall was now considered "poor" I decided as a beginner to follow suggestion and download Online-Armor. Disaster! For 24 hrs. all was OK, then the s... hit the fan. I couldn't open anything in Control Panel. I couldn't open CCleaner or Spybot or any of the malware programs. Picassa came up with a weird error message. Then it overlaid on my desktop the screenshot of my desktop I had taken months ago, with overlapping icons, some of programs I had long deleted. What a mess. It did, however, uninstall without problem and I am now trying Comodo. Fingers crossed!
Hope this helps anyone life myself who has to make a decision about a firewall.

Has anybody tried Online Armor? I have a few questions and comments.

1. How good is the free version of OA? Does it allow me to set permissions for outgoing connections? (Lots of my apps like to access the ineternet without telling me.) How good is it as a firewall?

2. Is there a way to install it on a 64-bit computer?

3. Comodo Firewall sucks! The last time I used it was over a year ago, and I could never find any way to set permissions for my apps.
