I have had the P182 for years and as soon as I got it I thought "I'm never going to need another PC case". I love it.

I can only assume you'll feel the same about the P183!

I have a P183 and find it to be a very quiet case and would highly recommend it.

Two issues to be aware of, which may or may not be important to you:

- The fans provided are not the quietest in the world and I ended up replacing them with arctic cooling and noctua fans to lower the noise

- The front panel USB and headphone sockets share a ground wire so you can get a ground loop (hum in the headphones) if you connect the front panel to both the USB motherboard header and sound card. I just disconnect the USB and the headphones work fine. Alternatively you can cut the wire so it is not shared but that depends on your appetite for modding

Other than that a very good case.
