I love it how the reviewer spent so much money on an A64 4000+ and complained about his inability to run two instaces of his game. Why didn't you spend LESS money on an X2 3800+?! More the fool to the reviewing, who clearly knows very little about processors.
What an atrocious review - what exactly did it have to do with the P180 case? I am the proud and happy owner of this case, and was looking forward to reading what THG had to say about it.
All this review showed me is that Andy Patrizio seems to not have a clue about computers. My issue though is not with the 6 minutes I wasted reading this, it's that the review's title "Up And Down With Antec's P180 Case" would lead me to believe this was a review OF the P180, NOT a review of Andy's fumbling computer skills.
I have a small suggestion for clearing this up, rename the article to either: Andy's Everquest Debacle
or: A Fine Example Of What Not To Do.

The Enermax 535 has an 8-pin (2x4-pin) 12V connector as is normally used on dual processor mobos. IDK if it is splittable like the 20+4 ATX connector but the left four pins will fit in the P4-12V connector as long as there is some clearance off the right side of the P4 connector (viewed from the latch side). And there are 4x2 to 2x2 adapters for those that have no clearance (but they are not cheap). [Edit]Apparently the K8N Neo4 Plat. has an inductor off the right side of the P4 connector - so sad... Worse to worse, one could cut the 4x4 in half with a hot knife. <roll-eyes>
. This was the pathetic recounting of the experience of a NOOB Builder, not than of an experienced builder as should be expected from a site such as this.
. If you avoid reading anything but the news and the PSU and Case roundups on THG, you will save yourself a lot of frustration and yelling at your screen: "Dummy!" "Idiot!" "Cretin!" were some of my cleaner exclamations.
