March 31, 2009 : P183 and P193 cases introduce new design, new cooling features and greater compatibility



Antec, the global provider of computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and do-it-yourself markets, today announced the P183 and P193, the latest additions to Antec’s award-winning Performance One series. The P183 and P193 cases build on the popular designs of the P182 and P190 respectively, while introducing improved cooling and airflow features, advanced noise control and compatibility with Antec’s exclusive CP Series power supply.

The P183 mid-tower case boasts the latest advancements in cooling with a dual chamber design; the power supply resides in a separate chamber to isolate heat and reduce system noise. Two TriCool™ 120mm fans - one rear, one top - ensure optimal cooling, while three optional fans provide additional cooling capabilities. Added vents designed in the front door also improve airflow into the P183. The double-hinged front door, which swings open to 270 degrees, allows for easy installation and customisation.  

The P193 Extended ATX case is designed to provide system builders with increased flexibility. The spacious interior of the P193 supports a variety of hardware, with 11 drive bays, seven expansion slots, Mini-ITX to Extended ATX motherboard compatibility, and room for multiple graphics cards and dual CPUs. Four TriCool™ fans - one rear, two top, and one Big Boy 200™ side -ensure maximum air circulation, while three optional fans offer additional cooling capabilities. Like the P183, the P193 also features a dual chamber design to isolate heat and noise, added vents in the front door to improve airflow, and a double-hinged front door for easy installation.

The P183 and P193 come with a power supply mounting adapter to mount either a standard size power supply or Antec’s exclusive CP Series power supply. The CP Series non-standard ‘CPX’ form factor provides a powerful, stable and cost-effective power supply solution. The P183 and P193 are the first Performance One cases to support the CP Series power supply. The P183 and P193 also both feature advanced Quiet Computing™ technologies. The P183 is designed with a three-layer front door and side panels (aluminum, plastic, aluminum) to dampen noise and ensure quiet computing. Meanwhile, the P193 features two-layer side panels (steel, polycarbonate) and a three-layer front door (aluminum, plastic, aluminum).  

“The P183 and P193 deliver exciting new options for the quality-conscious DIY consumer, providing Antec’s market-leading quiet computing alongside high-performance capabilities,” said Scott Richards, senior vice-president of Antec. “Antec prides itself on delivering advancements that surpass our customers’ expectations, and the P183 and P193 offer users greater freedom and customisation.”

The P183 and P193 are available at an estimated price point of £125.81 and £146.83 respectively, through major retailers, e-tailers and distributors.
