Antec P8 Tempered glass mid-tower
Antec P8 Tempered glass mid-tower casing middle budget gaming case. You can style as a high gaming casing though some extra components. The layout of the P8 is a familiar one: full PSU shroud, full coverage glass side panel, no 5.25” bays. Antec’s logo on the front panel lights up with white LEDs, matching the three white LED fans included with the case.
Cases we’ve seen in the past with this style (S340 Elite, Thermaltake G21, Define C TG) tend to be symmetrical with flat, smooth surfaces and sharp edges, but the P8 has a less “blank” look with a pattern stamped into the PSU shroud, visible logo, and unique front panel. Right now, the case is only available in black.
Antec P8 Tempered build
Before building, the first step is tearing down. This mostly went smoothly, except that the front I/O is attached directly to the front panel. That made it difficult to remove the panel (for installing fans, etc.) without yanking cables, and most cases we’ve reviewed lately just screw the I/O to the chassis for this reason.
The PCIe screw cover is held on with captive screws and can be slid back and forth, making it easily adjustable. This same feature is applied to the hard drive cage, which can be slid forward to allow more room for PSU cables or back for better airflow. The shape of the PSU shroud made it difficult to use the full range of movement in our sample, but it’s a good idea: the cage can be repositioned without removing any screws or even opening the case.
