P190 Overview

The P190 is quite a large and heavy case coming in at 43.2lbs! It looks like the P182 in many respects, but there are 2 main things that set it apart. First it is all black and second it has a HUGE fan on the side panel! Antec calls this their "Big Boy" fan and it sure is big! At 200mm it will keep your components inside nice and cool.


To add to the cooling Antec has added 2 120mm fans at the top of the case. I guess Antec decided that just one on the P182 was not enough. Also they have scrapped the air vent attachment that went on the top of the case. Each of the Tri-Cool fans has a honeycomb grill to keep wires and your fans from getting hurt.



Moving around to the front of the case the P190 has the same stylish door as the P182. The door opens up to reveal 4 5.25" drives and 1 3.5" external drive. Also on the front there is a panel that has a firewire, 2x USB ports, and audio connections as well as a lock.


Going all the way around to the back there is 1 definite thing that catches our attention, the 2 power supplies! The power supplies are arranged vertically. One is a 650W power supply for your motherboard and add-in cards. The other is a 550W power supply for your drives and peripherals. So a total of 1200W, that is more than enough for any system!


Also on the back Antec has a nice big 120mm exhaust fan and 2 holes for water-cooling tubes. Also towards the top of the case you will find 3 small switches. These switches control the 2 top fans and exhaust fan. Making it very easy to turn them up or down depending on what you are doing.
