Antec Performance One P380 Full-Tower Chassis Review

Inside the P380




Behind the bezel, we see that the side vents are run through and come to the center, where the removable dust filter is. The front of the chassis is wide open for optional fans and is recessed to make room for them.





We removed the side panels with sound deadening material on the back of them and found this. The wiring is loosely hung and has gotten loose in shipping. The hardware and literature have stayed tightly tied to the motherboard tray, however.




There are two bays at the top of the chassis for 5.25" drives, but with no holes in the bezel, this is just extra space and support for the top of the HDD bays.




Speaking of the HDD bays, they are broken up into three racks. The top rack can hold a pair of drives while the lower two cages can house three each. The slide out trays are drilled so that you can screw in either a 2.5" drive or a 3.5" drive into each of them.




After removing a dozen or so screws, we found that the entire assembly will come out of the case. This can be broken down into components and rearranged inside, or left out altogether to allow for water cooling to be installed.




At the top of the chassis, once the top panel has been removed, you can access cooling options here. We see that Antec supplies two 140mm fans, but there is room for a third. There is also room for three 120mm fans and 360mm worth of radiator if you want.
