Final Thoughts and Conclusions
The Antec P193 advanced super mid-tower case should appeal to a large number of PC enthusiasts.  It features excellent build quality with sleek styling.  The P193 is a relatively large mid-tower chassis that provides 11 storage bays and offers several incremental improvements over the original P190.  The four bundled fans can be adjusted to deliver the right balance of airflow to noise thanks to the integrated speed controls.  Along with more room and improved airflow the P193 also accepts Antec’s proprietary CP series PSUs as well as standard ATX power supplies. 

There is not much bad to say about this case but be aware that it is a relatively heavy enclosure (36 lbs) and some installations may require a PSU with long cables to reach everything with optimum cable routing.
