As far as cooling is concerned, the new models adds a 200mm Tri-Cool fan on the side and a 120mm fan to the top. This means that right in the motherboard area there will be three 120mm fans and that huge 200mm which has affectionately been labeled the "Big Boy". Small changed include the move from foam to a plexiglass on the inside to dampen sound, a more conventional venting system on the top, cable management behind the motherboard and a slight change to the exterior panels. There is one more things though...<br />

The real surpise of the P190 is the use of included dual power supplies! The PSU area was completely revamped and it slated to include dual power supplies, one for the video card and one for the motherboard and other components. Antec reps made it very clear that these are not redundant power supplies, just a way to split the load between two units rather than using one very expensive power supply. The total wattage is rumored to be about 1200W between the two "Neo-Link" units

That's great concept but how about the noise levels? <br />
<br />
And the.....that's a bad place for the PSU IMO.

I knew this would happen, and im so glad I didnt get the 180 quite yet. Awesome awesome awesome! I hope it stays relatively quiet, though!

I like it a lot. Very clean, and it looks like it'd get great airflow.

Why put powersupplys in a case that anyone who buys will be able to afford $200+ PSUs?

</div>Well why change a design that works so well? I rather have them just add to it. <br />
<br />
This case is going to do an awesome job of cooling, but noise level is still a factor due to those larger openings.<br />

Good case<br />
<br />
Nothing wrong with the PSU location; I actually like that bottom position! Separated from everything else.<br />
<br />
However, my main question is: it seems those PSU are not ATX. I don't think tehre is enough space for two ATX PSUs. if so, then it'll be hard to replace those PSUs. Antec really should come with a P190 w/o a PSU and have enough space for a large 1KW+ PSU and/or dual ATX PSUs. Right now, the P180 cannot accomodate those large PSUs, and I don't think this one can either.

Did you see what it said, though. 400 bucks? Geeze......<br />
<br />
I hear what your saying about the noise though, definitely something to look into.

For $400, you'd think you'd get a window. :***:

It should come without PSU/s.
