    Sweet!

    I love Antec cases! Some of the nicer cases money can buy. I wonder if they've fixed the problem with rattling panels and awkward screwdriver/bracket angles.

    Sometimes I have to give my fiance's SX1040 a good whack to get the panels to stop vibrating. I guess I should put some window foam on the inside.

    Yes, the power supplies will be available seperately. They all have dual fans. No prices on website for them yet. They even have a new 550 watt unit!!!

    Question

    It would be to much to ask for antec to sell just the face plate. as a part number so you can update one you already have

    Antec mentions something like "true power" when referring to the new power supplies. Are these power supplies with power factor correction?

    As far as the prices go for the new power supplies....


    (these are from compusa as I work there)

    550: 129.99
    430/480 (dont remember) 99.99
    380: 79.99
    330: 69.99

    I think these are pretty accurate... give me a day and I can get exact retail prices.

    Looking forward to your review as well Tigs. I'll be buying a new case in the next month or so. The Antec 1040 was my front runner but the new 1080 adds many of the features missing in the 1040 that I want.
