Universal Pacakage Smashers destroyed my computer in shipping...bad news everything was destroyed...good news is it was insured and I get to buy a new setup now.
I've been looking at getting a P182. Seems like a solid case and provides a decent number of fan placements. I am planning to overclock a Q6600 (probably in the 3-3.2 range so nothing too drastic). I will also be running one 8800 GTX to start with a plan to expand to a SLi setup when I get a larger monitor.
One: Will a Zalman 9700 or Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme fit in the case?
Two: Does the P182 provide for enough air flow to keep the Q6600 OCed cool with one of the above mentioned heatsinks? I will be installing fans in all applicable points within the box and will also be removing the middle 3.5 bay cage for the air flow/ enough room for 8800 GTXs to fit.
Three: I usually use Thermaltake Toughpower power, but NewEgg has a deal for a P182 with an Antec PSU. Is the Antec Truepower Quattro 1000 PSU good enough to run an SLi setup and is it a quality power supply?

I would get the Thermalright ultra 120 Extreme with the Scythe S-flex 120 F fan. It will fit that case no problem. Newegg's price on that fan is outrageous get it from here Scythe S-FLEX SFF21F 120mm Silent Fan Be aware that the Ultra 120 on heatsinkfactory.com doesn't come with mounting hardware.
