Introduction

Antec makes some of the best PC cases and power supplies available today. As far as cases go their Performance One series has been at hit. We have seen the P150, P160, P180, and P182 cases. Now it's time for the "Big Boy" the P190. The P190 combines 2 Antec power supplies with the P190 chassis giving you an all-in-one powerful system. This is the first time we have seen a dual-power supply design so it will be interesting to see how it works. Let's see what the P190 has in store for us!

Packaging

Now I said the P190 is big, so of course it comes in a big box! The box is designed to be carried by 2 people. On one side there is a big P190 logo and a smaller Performance 1 logo. On the top there are a few photos and a list of the extended capabilities of the P190.


Opening up the case we are greeted with 3 things. Modular cables for the power supply, user's manual, and a flyer making sure we know to connect the green / black wires on the power supplies. Moving the first big piece of cardboard we finally find the case nicely protected inside of the box. There is another identical piece of cardboard on the other side and the case is wrapped in plastic.
