Case Build & Finished Product
As is the trend in a lot of cases these days, and one we like, the front of the P380 looks the same now as it did when we first laid eyes on it. The design is such that there is no way to break up the aluminum, nor would we have wanted to.
For those who want water cooling, there is a ton of space in the front; even room above the motherboard as well. Everything we installed went in as smooth as silk, but the wiring is very tight on the HD Audio cable and the USB 3.0 connection, so much that it even warps the grommet in the hole they are running through.
The back of the chassis has not a single issue. The dust cover snapped right in. The card aligns well, and the PSU lines right up to be screwed into place.
One thing we did miss was options for drives once the bays had been removed. With all of the room left behind the tray, we just stuck an SSD in on the floor and went about the build as usual. Fan leads are long, and makes connecting them to the hub simple, and we even got away with bundling most of the wiring together without having interference with the door panel.
Even mixing steel sides with the aluminum top and front of the P380, we like everything this exterior offers. It is sleek, sophisticated, and even with the large window to view the hardware, we have a hard time finding any fault with the aesthetics of this chassis.
One thing about this chassis that we found out when powering it up, there are no lights to blind you or shine onto the walls. Everything is hidden from view, even the switches to turn it on, and this is why we moved to a lower angle. That way you could see the fan spinning and the Zotac name on the card is lit up, denoting the system is on.
