Antec P193 Performance One

Externals

The P193 is a pretty nice looking case. It has a solid construction feel and a nice matt black paint job. The right hand side panel (when looking from the back) has a section that juts out from the main body that works as an air intake.

The outermost surface is quite a nice brushed aluminium feel.

Around the brushed aluminium you’ll find grilled edges which allow for the air to be drawn in and blown over the internals by the large hidden fan.

The front panel has a nice grey tone to it, with small grilled sections down one side which look alright. Beneath this there’s a locking key that allows you to protect your ODDs and power switches. Beneath we have the front panel connectors including one eSata, 1x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0 and a pair of 3.5mm connectors.

The front panel also features air vents along each side that allow cool exterior air to be drawn in by the front fans (if mounted).

The same can be said of every 5 1/4″ drive bay which also feature grilled panelling. This allows relatively decent airflow through the panel.
