Antec P100 Case Review
As usual to better enable you to visualise how much room there is and how this case compares with others, we've lobbed in our old faithful NZXT Havic 120 CPU cooler. With the P100 able to accept Coolers up to 170mm in height the 160mm of the Havic is not a problem.
Taking the roof panels out might allow more sound to escape and increase to sonic footprint of the case, but on the plus side ventilation and cooling are hugely improved. We are though quite surprised that Antec don't make a mention of the P100s native ability to accommodate 240mm and 280mm rads up here. Just a shame those inter fan screw holes aren't slotted to permit greater compatibility.
With 68mm of room between the roof and the edge of the motherboard it's entirely feasible to get any rad up to about 40mm thick in here.
With the 240mm rad inter-screw spacing at 15mm and the 280mm at 20mm the P100 is ideally suited to take a range of todays sub 40mm radiators such as XSPC RS, AX and EX series, as well as the EK Coolstream PE 240 and many others, just head over to Special tech and take a look at the range available. As usual we've shown the case with a XSPC RS 240 which at 35mm thick best shows how much space you have. More likely though is that you're going to be putting an AIO solution up there. If this is the case then you'll be pleased to know any of the smaller or even large AIOs on the market today will fit just fine. Unfortunately, the NZXT Kraken won't fit as it has a 15mm screw spacing and the P100 has a 20mm screw spacing for it's 140mm fan mounts.
