Hardware Install

Well installing all my system components was not that hard at all. The hardest part was the motherboard. I installed a DFI LAN Party KT400A board in the P150. It was a very tight fit. I would say most people will have some trouble fitting their motherboard in the P150 because of the tight fit, especially with all the wires in there.

While installing the drives I noticed that the front bezel can actually be taken off. This is nice because it was a tight fit trying to get the drives in the first time with the door still on. All you have to do to take the door off is pull up on it slightly and it will come right off.

Now the hard drive situation, first we installed our hard drive in one of the hard drive bays. You can easily pull them out and screw a drive onto them. They feature the rubber spacers that we have seen on past Antec cases. These rubber spacers dampen vibrations that the hard drive will make.

Now the hard drive support system. What you want to do is place the drive between the 2 suspenders. It is a really easy process to put the drive in. I was surprised to see how stable the drive was while being suspended. Although I would not trust this system while traveling or going to LAN parties. This support system makes the case extremely quiet because the vibrations from the hard drives will not be felt by the case itself, but distributed by the suspenders.
