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(tm) fans-one rear, two top, and one side Big Boy 200(tm)-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 feature advanced Quiet Computing(tm) technologies. The P183 is designed with a three-layer front door and side panels (aluminum, plastic, aluminum) to dampen noise and ensure quiet computing.
