The Inside

As I said before the P150 features a nice 120MM fan. It is one of Antec TriCool fans. It has 3 adjustable speeds that you can control VIA a small control box connected to the fan itself. The PCI slot covers are removable which I prefer over ones that are actually attached to the case frame.

The front of the P150 is where the real surprise is. At the front of the case there are 3 tabs that you can push down to open the front of the P150. This process is done very easily without much effort. We have seen cases in the past were getting the front bezel off was a pain. Now when you open the front bezel it nicely slides out like a case door would. When you open the front of the case it reveals the drive bays, and 2 front fan slots. These slots can each hold a 92MM fan. They also feature fan filters, which is a nice bonus. These fan filters can be easily removed without tools so cleaning them is a snap.

If you notice by the fan slots are 2 thumbscrews. If you unscrew them they open another door that reveals the hard drive bays. The P150 features 4 removable hard drive bays. Now if you take the drive bays out you can see Antec's hard drive suspension system. This system is meant to dampen the vibration that hard drives make. This is the first time we have seen this type of setup in a case, so I'm anxious to see how well they will work and if I can trust them to hold my hard drives.
