15 Case Power Tower Round-Up

The Cases: Up Close And Personal

Antec P160 : Lightweight At 13 Pounds

Antec’s P160 midi tower is one of the lightest cases in our round-up, thanks to the fact that all its parts are made of ultra-thin aluminum. There are four 5.25" drive bays. Two of them sport front bevels, which is all the better to hide non-aluminum components. You can also access two more 3.5" bays from the front, one of which is set up for floppy use. One unusual feature is the control display, with front ports for USB, FireWire and audio, that can be rotated vertically by 45 degrees. The display reports the current internal temperature in Celsius or Fahrenheit. A switch inside the case allows you to change between the metric and the English system.

Without any hardware, the Antec P160 weighs in at 13 lbs.

The case produces a blue light when running

    I find it admirable that an article so old is still kept alive. Recently acquired one of this cases in excellent shape at a garage sale and wanted to know more about it.

    Thanks to this article and the great dedication of this website I have been educated. Kudos to you all.
