5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product, Great Support Team

Pros: -Beautiful design
-Silent
-Dust Free (wowza is it dust free)
-Easy to design for optimal air flow
-Over sized power supply is awesome/must have

Cons: -None that I can think of, best case I've ever built with

Other Thoughts: I discovered after about 9 months of ownership that the front audio port was physically broken. It must have came out of the factory like that as I hadn't used it since I had bought the case. I sent Antec Tech Support a ticket and they sent me out a totally new set of front ports free of charge. It was a very hasty response and I can safely give Antec tech support a 5/5 eggs.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case, besides side fan

Pros: Overall, the case did everything I needed. Had plenty of space, good price, great airflow, pretty quite

Cons: The side air panel had a fan in it that stuck inwards to much, so it hit my heat sink. This would not have been a concern if I could have easily just removed it, but when I did that, the screws were to small and fell through the hole. Simply putting a washer in did not help as you have a 1/2 inch gap where the plastic of the fan would be so i ended up finding little meddle holders and bending them to hold the screw in place but also brace the gap. Not ideal, but besides that, a great product!

Other Thoughts: Kind of was a pain finding what I needed to fix since I don't have tons of stuff around the house, but besides that it's 10 steps up from my last one which was loud as hell

4 out of 5 eggsGood case, but there's better

Pros: Plenty of space, locking front door, great airflow with quiet fans, sleek black look, overall solid and quiet.

Cons: Heavy, large (this should be labeled as full-tower case, there is nothing Mid about it). Need to be careful about your heatsink size, max heatsink height is 140mm, so no oversized heatsinks unless you reverse the side 200mm fan to be on the outside of the case (see below). While this case feels solid enough to survive a bomb blast, it feels old in style compared to the thoughtfully designed and user friendly as the NZXT Phantom cases (full tower, but the same size as this Mid-tower heavy black beast). Also wish it had a hole in the middle of backplate for cord management.

Other Thoughts: The Zalman CNPS9900 heatsink is too tall for this case by about 2mm and so it hits the side fan. To get around that issue as others have mentioned, just unscrew the 4 side 200mm fan screws on the mounting unit that intrudes on the inside of the case (need hex tool), & mount the fan onto the outside of the case. You will barely notice the difference, it just sticks out a few more millimeters. You will however need 4 longer screws to mount the fan back onto the mountain assembly, either with using washers or using screw with fat heads that won't slip through the holes (thankfully my mobo came with such screws that were about 3/4" long with 1/2" heads that worked but most f you probably have extra screws or washers laying around that will work just fine. There is apparently 2 version of the P193. The old version had more height for heatsinks since it didn't have the backplate space for cord management. This new version does, and so heatsink height is an issue.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: great case, plenty of room inside, ease of access, lots of air ventilation, this combined with the CPX power supply works great, really quiet

Cons: i would give it 4 eggs, but it had some faulty wiring than i didn't discover till i already had most everything installed. power switch wire was tore out, power wire on one of the top fans was tore out, and for some reason, one the front usb ports connectors came out. i didn't return it because it would've been too much trouble to take everything out, hey nothing a little solder can't fix

Other Thoughts: other than those faults, great case just make sure you check all the wiring before you accept it

1 out of 5 eggsNOISY 140 mm FANS

Pros: Construction, cooling, space, side fan which is very quiet

Cons: The 140 mm fans are very low quality and vibrate severly

Other Thoughts: Plan on spending an extra $50 buying aftermaket top 140 mm fans if QUIET is what you are after

4 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Feels solid, everything fits together well. Case is extremely quiet.

Cons: Had some trouble stretching my power cables across motherboard due to the bottom-mounted power supply for both builds I did with this case.

Instructions were nearly nonexistent, and I had trouble figuring out how to install the hard drives. There are a couple of pieces of plastic that came with the case which I still to this day have no idea what to do with. I think these guys should have sprung for a few hours with a tech writer to write an instruction manual.

Other Thoughts: There aren't any crazy, super-bright flashing lights on the case, so I had to buy some Christmas tree lights and tape them to the side

4 out of 5 eggsa wonderful case

Pros: -Huge case
-Fits everything perfectly
-Perfect for high end graphics card
-Wonderful airflow and a lot of places where you can put your fans.
-Quiet
-fits CP power supplies for high end set ups.

Cons: -huge case bad for people who go for lan
-weight, My set up is about 40lbs
-If youre planning to quadding xfiring or sli;ing
-cannot fit huge heatsinks but if youre really spending that much money you might as well get a pre water cooling like the h50 corsair
-huge for a mid tower.

Other Thoughts: Antec p193 with 9 fans
Asus maximus III formula
Intel I5-750 oc to 3.2ghz
H50 corsair water cooler
kingston hyper x (4x 2gb) 1600 with ram fan
64gb kingston s2n
80gb x19-m
750gb caviar black
Sapphire 5970 2gb
ocz II mainstream 700w
1 cd drive...

It holds everything perfectly, and theres enough space to space out everthing this thing is huge for a mid tower
Knowing from viewing the p180 and p183 that it wouldnt hold a huge heatsink why i went to the h50
I stuck a fan where you possibly can like with 1 cd drive you could stick another fan in there possibly two.
theres so much space in both harddrive bays i personally dont need two harddrive bays i needed one so i put the extra fan in there.
I have tried triple crossfire it didnt have enough space but its fine.

4 out of 5 eggsGood overall case.

Pros: Case design is nice and the variable speed fans are useful. I like the fact it has a good amount of space and a neat separate compartment for storing extra wires. Also liked the easy access you have when you need to remove a drive. I had it for over a year and the fans are still running strong without needing to be replaced. The dust screens are a nice touch and are easy to clean.

Cons: I deducted one egg since the box was in fairly bad shape with holes in it and it was open. (No sign of tape ever on it) There was no damage or missing items from the box but still. When you buy something new it would be nice to have the box look like it wasn't raided by Vikings.

Other Thoughts: Newegg had very fast shipping as usual and it was a pleasure doing business with them. I will continue to buy from them over other companies.

3 out of 5 eggsMixed feelings

Pros: You could build a small subdivision inside this case. LOTS of space, fairly well designed. Love HAVING the 270 degree door.

As for noise... I realize that a fair amount of credit goes to Noctua's CPU cooler design, but I LITERALLY had the side panel off the case (see cons) and when I first powered the system I actually had to put my hands in front of fans to be sure they were working. EXTREMELY quiet.

Cons: Well my first/biggest complaint is Antec's design & documentation. I foolishly missed seeing the motherboard clearance. If you've got a massive cooling tower like the Noctua NH-D14 for example (sigh), you will discover that the design has the mounting hardware for the massive side panel fan coming INSIDE the side panel. Sure enough I am having to gut the brand new case for a different one because I couldn't close the door.

The space for the lower drive array leaves much to desire. In order to remove a drive (yeah I had a brand new HDD fail w/in 24 hours, thanks WD) you have to un-cable all the drives. The support bracket is close enough that 4 drives worth of SATA and power won't move very easily.

Speaking of the lower chassis, I was surprised that they stuck with typical screw design. Really expected something more high-tech and easily removable. As it happened, when my HDD failed, I had to remove the whole thing just to get the drive out.

Other Thoughts: Had Antec used a LITTLE more forethought, they probably could have designed a better side-panel fan mount. It really didn't need to come inside the case and if it hadn't, then I would have given this a 4-4.5 score (only drawback IMO is the lower disk chassis and cable room in the bottom)

5 out of 5 eggsNONPAREIL

Pros: The best case I have ever owned. Quiet and cool. Enough drive bays to swing a hammock in there if you had to. Everyone who sees it is intimidated by its size. It is big! It is Heavy! This will not fit on your IKEA computer stand. For personal use, I will buy this case for my high end machines until something truly better comes along. Had no problem with oversized cooler (Cooler Master Hyper N 520) with no case mods or fan reversing. Good quality mounting hardware, and lots of it.

Cons: Well, they say every work of art has at least one flaw.
Like all top-mounted fan cases, I wish it had an air scoop on top to keep out dust out when the computer is turned off. Using a dustcover is a hassle. The HDMI slot on the front is a mystery. Why not another USB or an E-sata? In fact, if they were turned horizontally, you could probably mount a half dozen USB slots there, and that would be nice.

Oh, and the lock and the front cover are an under-improvement, but I just popped the hinged cover off. Voila!

Other Thoughts: When I saw the box sitting on my porch after being dropped off by the FEDEX man, I choked. The package looked as if it had been run through a wood chipper. I couldn't believe Newegg would ship something in that condition. My first impulse was to refuse delivery, but I didn't and amazingly the only damage was a BB sized dent at the back of the right side panel. Come on Antec---this is a heavy case, not a box of cereal. Support the cardboard industry...buy a better box!!!
