Having joined the HEXUS community with its Antec.care@HEXUS forum, Antec is getting into the spirit by offering our lucky readers the opportunity to win one of four Mini P180 chassis.

The Antec Mini P180, designed for gamers on the move, features a heat-dissipating dual-chamber design with room for a microATX motherboard, power supply, and up to 5 hard drives. It's currently available in black or white, so we've decided to give away two of each!

If that isn't enough, Antec tells us it'll be sweetening the deal by bundling each winners' chassis with a 750W Continuous Power power supply from its TruePower range.

The 750W Continuous Power unit, pictured above, boasts the following key features:

  • DC to DC voltage regulation modules for greater system stability
  • 120mm PWM fan runs up to 50 per cent quieter than standard fans
  • Advanced hybrid cable management
  • Double layer PCB optimises cooling efficiently and allows for heavy duty components
  • 80 Plus Bronze certification
  • ATX12V v2.3 & EPS12V v2.91
  • NVIDIA SLI-Ready certification
  • 5-year warranty

The TruePower New PSU is a brand-new power supply that has many of the features inherent in the very high-end Signature range but at a more-affordable price, bringing cutting-edge technology into the mainstream.

Interested? We thought so. In order to be in with a chance of winning, all you need to do is visit the Antec.care@HEXUS forum and post your answers to the following two questions:

1) What do you love about Antec chassis?

2) What do you dislike about Antec chassis?

To enter, simply visit the Antec.care@HEXUS forum and post your answers in the official competition thread before midnight on March 31st 2009.

That's all there is to it! All entries will be entered into our prize draw and four lucky winners will be awarded an Antec Mini P180 chassis and an Antec TruePower 750W Continuous Power power supply. As always, we'd appreciate it if the lucky winners would be willing to publish their thoughts on the prizes in the HEXUS.community forums.

Good luck everyone, we'll be picking our lucky winners soon after the competition closes. And remember, if you're an Antec fan or just thinking about getting some new kit for your PC, drop into the Antec.care@HEXUS forum where the Antec crew are waiting to answer all your questions.

Well I love the fact that they make quiet cases which seperate the heat into different chambers and allow good cable management thats great inovation and just what an enthusiast wants. I love the tri-cool fans so I can choose what performance I have from my fan. Antec cases always look stylish and modern and inside have a quality feel.

I hate…nothing really, but if I had to pick some niggles it would be the fact antec tend to use plastic as their base matieral for the cladding (I know its acoustically better and cheaper but aluminium has a certain something about it). Also pertaining to that the clips on the sides are plastic and can be broken relatively easily, which is annoying.


I always think their cases look smarter than most other, they give you the sense they're the latest cutting edge designs in both performance & often looks.

The only negative thing I can think of is cost, I appreciate the quality but sometimes they are more expensive & I feel alternatives are available offering similar spec but at reduced prices.
Love the innovation of the internal layouts and the overall cooling performance. It's clear Antec really think about their designs, unlike some other high profile chassis manufacturers who make the internals look impressive, but they lack the performance. Won't name names…

I dislike some of the external styling decisions. For example, on the mini 180 case – which is very sleek in many ways – There's an arrow fletching-like fan grill on the top of the case. Not my sort of thing. Just seems unnecessary visual pollution on an otherwise good looking case.
Quite a few things I love about there chassis's, they are very well built and sturdy, loads of room to work with and generally have very good airflow, also there lower end chassis's are very nicely priced but don’t skimp on quality, generally there’s at least 1x 12cm fan and its solidly built.
They always look good and stylish without being to chav.
In short, great bulid quality, good value and great performance.

I dislike the fact that sometimes they take a few revisions to get it right, P180 for example, had one, cable routing was a pain, P182 fixed most of the issues.
Likes - The great things about Antec chassis have to be the quality and the innovation. For example the introduction of the chambers in the original P180. The Three Hundred may well be cheap, but it is more impressive than rival 2x or even 3x the price. The attention to detail makes a huge difference, especially when it comes to hiding cables.

Dislikes - Current range is difficult to water cool without serious modding. Skeleton chassis was a good concept poorly executed, especially with regards to the lack of space for a aftermarket CPU cooler.
