maybe you got negative case pressure, sommething like the corsair 800D is suffering from, in 800D case, it has more exhaust fans then intake. basically case tries to push out more air then its sucking in
Yeah, I have an Antec P180B (its in my signature).

It most likely has negative pressure problems due to a lack of intake fans. I'm in the process of fixing this by sticking a 120mm fan (using velcro) into the top 3 5.25" bays. These cases are well built and very quiet, but they just aren't meant for modern graphics cards.
