Default Antec P180 Review, Part 1: A Silent System

Granted, a minimalist Pentium-M system isn't going to tax the thermal capabilities of this case, but I was able to run this system, and keep it very cool even under hot ambient temperatures all with only one case fan, and that was running at an inaudible 5V. The only way I can tell if this system is running is to look at the power LED (a bit too bright for my tastes). This, to me, is a perfect litmus test of a quiet PC.

It would be better to test the case with desktop CPU setup. Granted, using Intel M processor will certainly produce a very quiet system where a comparion with a laptop would be more appropriate

Indeed, I would like to see a 4000+ AMD in there.

All you need is to take a look at this and the result.
