Antec P193 Advanced Mid-Tower Case Review
Specifications and Packaging
The Antec P193 is a large, advanced mid-tower enclosure that incorporates all the basic features that made the original P190 popular but with several improvements. The enclosure is made primarily from cold rolled steel with plastic trim pieces and two brushed aluminum panels. One of the most significant changes involved moving the large side fan outside the enclosure, which provides more internal space and allows mounting larger CPU heatsink fans (up to 140mm tall).

Packaging and Includes
The standard retail box comes packed inside a second cardboard box for shipping. The P193 enclosure is wrapped in plastic and securely nestled between two large foam end-blocks for protection. The aluminum trim panels are covered with plastic film to protect the brushed finish. Antec goes to great lengths to insure their enclosures arrive at their final destination unharmed.
Packed inside the motherboard area is a large box of parts, which contains all the accessories that come with the case (drive rails, screws/hardware, optional fan mounting hardware, and cable ties). The only documentation included with the case is a brief, single page P193 Product Overview however a detailed User's Manual is available for download from Antec's website.
