Excerpt: It was three years ago when we received and reviewed the first case of the P19x series from Antec, the P190. Back then Antec marketed the P190 as the "most advanced performance computer case yet" and it truly was an excellent computer case. The P190 was not cheap but it was a case loved by hardcore enthusiasts and extreme overclockers for a great number of reasons.
Summary: Final Thoughts
We always have high expectations for Antec products, especially their cases because they have always impressed us. The P193 is no exception to that, it is a very solid case and there isn’t much bad that we can say about it. The 4 included fans, especially the HUGE 200mm fan will definitely keep everything inside nice and cool.
Pros: – Price, – Tons of room inside, – Great cooling, – Able to fit Antec’s CPSeries power supplies, – Easy Installation
Cons: – No 2.5inch hard drive placement, – No CPU cutout, – Side panel fan has a short power connector and its fan control is on the inside of the case
Excerpt: Antec is well respected in the industry for their chassis (and other products), and as well they should. They are rapidly approaching their 25th anniversary so they have been around long enough to know what their customers want and how to deliver on that expectation. Case in point (no pun intended), their P193 mid tower chassis.
Summary: The Antec P193 Case is based on the P183 case, but with many changes. For one, it's a little larger so it fits 12x13" Extended ATX form factor motherboards. There are a total of four TriCool fans; two 140mm at the top, one 120mm at the back and a 200mm fan on the left side panel. It has a cable management system, plenty of drive bays, compartmentalized design and much more. Watch the video to find out more...
Summary: I’ve had an abiding affection for Antec’s Performance One series of cases ever since the first P180 came out, and the P193 only reaffirms it. “Enthusiast” cases are usually flashy, loud and attention-grabbing; the P193 and its cousins are anything but. If you’re looking for a case that will take your noisy beast of a PC and swallow it into a cold, black pit of silence, this is the case for you. From fit and finish to raw performance, this case excels in all areas.
Summary: What is not to like about the Antec 193 case? I has all of the features that a true computer enthusiast can ask for except the removable motherboard tray and in my case that is not even a must have item. Antec is one of the few companies where I can honestly say that O like almost every case they produce and this one is no exception.
Conclusion: Antec’s new P193 doesn’t deviate that much from the original, but that’s a good thing. It witholds its build strength, strong cooling characteristics and its cable management is still top notch. I like the moving of the side fan to a more exterior location and the increased front panel venting will play a part if you decide to add in some front intakes.
Pros: Looks great, professional with gamer edge, Cools well and quietly, plenty of expansion room, Ample cable management space, Removable drive cages and bays, PSU is sequestered away
Cons: Big, means PSU cables are stretched, No interior paint job, some edges still sharp, No PSU intake vent
