Got A New Antec Mid Tower (Slow Buildup Thread)


#1

As tittle states I got myself an new Antec P100 tower, guess they re not built the same as the older p180 were that a friend of mine had, looks way lighter to me, but it s been years ago.

Edit: It will be a long term project here. Had to start somewhere lol.

Good work!

We need progress photos


#3

Thx. Might if I can post pix from iPad or whatever.

Guess the 1st thing to do will be to remove the el cheapo fans from there & get some quality ones.


#4

Nice! @altman. More pics!!


#5

. Will need someone to take pix for me, wonder when ! lolThx @philT


#6

Happy for you mate. I have ten yr old Dell a laptop an 8yr old custom desktop. Am looking to upgrade to as ssd but the prices here as re stoopid.


#7

You bet, but desktops are easy to mod, compared to lappies whit the limited space available, It s my 1st desktop in the works.


#8

Nice job @altman . It’s even liquid cooled from the looks of it.


#9

Thanks @altman, can’t wait for you to finish my new toy, and its not even my birthday! :wink:


#10

lol, bad boy ! @sammiev


#11

@sevenday4 , yep, it can have some, but now it s empty.


#12

Nice. I have a 3 year old build sitting here that my wife and I share. She has a chromebook for work and I have a 9 year old laptop, but the desktop is our workhorse. I’m curious just how “silent” the case is. I wish mine was more quiet for my podcasting, but I don’t know that I really believe that they can make “silent” cases. I think I’m better off putting some acoustic panels or egg crate foam on the wall behind my desktop.


#13

Thx .Wonder about it also, but I wont mind much if a bit noisy, we ll see @sikkdays .


#14

So, wait, is this a computer that is already built. Or are saying the cooling system is not filled?


#15

Yep, the towern s empty, nothing has been done to it, still in box @sevenday4 .

Loads of stuff to buy & install or to have them installed.


#16

The thing for now is to get some components for the build, so it might take time as I haven t been for the last 5 years or so due to lower back & shoulders issues.


#17

So, you’re building your computer from scratch! Sorry @sammiev, @altman is building it for me!:joy: joking of course. What motherboard are you going to use?


#18

Lol, @sevenday4.

No idea for now, gotta buy the fans 1st, then the PSU depending on what Mobo & GPU I plan to get then go from there

Edit: pretty sure it will have an Intel inside & as well as an Asus Mobo also, & will go from there I guess.


#19

Remember @altman, to get the components like RAM that will be the right configuration for the motherboard. Such as DD3,DD4,and so forth. And make sure you get the right CPU for that motherboard. I want my…hmm I mean your computer to work its best. :wink:

I do not know in other regions but the Latin people like to set up the PC on benches, I even had a similar one (I sold it), this is common here, sometimes they make at home in acrylic or steel plate, wood, the image shows a example home made, the boy only paid to cut and turn the steel / iron plate.


They also make adaptations, the example GPU uses the casing of a model but inside is another board, they seek to improve the cooling anyway.
It is well crafted https://imgur.com/a/0y5yeFc

@altman I liked the beginning of your project, congratulations!!
