The Performance One series of cases from Antec have been extremely solid and have been around for quite a while now. If you go to a LAN party you are sure to see a P180, P182, or even a P183 somewhere. All of the cases offer great cooling and a lot of storage room. Today we will be looking at the “big boy” of the Performance Once series the P193. This massive case is designed much like the P183 except it is much larger so you can fit pretty much anything inside of it! Let’s take a look at the P193 and see if it is the perfect case for you!
Antec’s Truepower line of power supplies has been around for several years now. ThinkComputers really liked theTruepower Quattro 1000W and the 850W. The former was one of the first recipients of my Editor’s Choice Award. The Truepower New 750W was released last year, but we’ve got a fresh review of this 80PLUS Bronze certified unit with a 120mm PWM fan and partial modularity.
Silverstone announced at CES 2010 that it would consolidate its power supply lines into a single line, the Strider series. The Striders are 80PLUS certified, with the Strider Plus models at 80PLUS Silver certified (85% efficiency). All Striders are fully modular for easier cleaning or replacement. Silverstone provided ThinkComputers with a 750W version of its Strider Plus series. The review is here.
Antec has always been known for making very reliable power supplies. They have done something a little interesting with their CP-Series power supplies though. They are designed differently so they are larger than most power supplies, which means they will only fit in certain cases. Those cases include Antec’s Twelve Hundred, P183, and P193. The larger size does allow for a better internal design, but is that worth limiting what cases you can put the power supply in? Antec has sent us their 850W version of the CP-Series, let’s put it to the test and see if it’s worth it!
Antec’s Performance One series cases have been a staple in the computer case industry for quite a while. I know quite a few people that have had their Antec P180 and P182 cases for years now. Antec has once improved their current Performance One cases with the new P183. It features new front door vents, air filters on the entire front of the case and more room for longer power supplies. Besides all of these new improvements you get Antec’s superior quality and sleek style. So let’s take a look at the P183 Advanced Mid Tower.
Today we have the opportunity to check out the Antec Two Hundred Mid Tower Case. Antec promotes the Two Hundred as a best bang for your buck case. According to Antec it’s also their most affordable case yet. It includes ten drive bays, one of which is hot swap, CPU cooler cutout, two fans with fan controllers and many other features. How will it stand up against other budget cases? Read on further to see what we think.
Last year at CES Antec really showed off with their new Skeleton cases, power supplies and gaming cases. This year Antec has really taken things to the next level with a new line of cases, finally an update to the LanBoy case and some other really cool products. If you are a fan of Antec you are really going to like their 2010 lineup, let’s take a look!
We have been reviewing Antec cases for quite some time here at ThinkComputers. While most Antec cases are revolutionary and have many features you just don’t find on other cases they really are plain cases in the sense that they are not that flashy or stylish at all. Well Antec has a case that is anything but ordinary. This case looks nothing like any other case out there and it seems weird coming from a company like Antec, but remember most of their cases really are revolutionary and this one sure is. So without further ado I present the Skeleton Case from Antec!
Anyone who’s been in the market for a case in the past couple years has probably heard of the infamous Antec Nine Hundred. Today we have a chance to look at the redesigned Nine Hundred Two, which offers the same features of the original, but with further improvements. Improvements include a complete black interior, built in fan controllers, and better quality materials. Read on further to see what else the redesigned Nine Hundred Two has to offer.
Antec has been relatively quiet over the past year, just a few releases. This year at CES they invited us up to their suite to check out some of their new products and even to take a look at a prototype case that looks nothing like anything that is out right now! Let’s see what Antec will be releasing this year!
