The next generation of some of Antec's most popular cases are here. With the latest upgrades, the P183 has been transformed into the P183 V3, and same goes for the P193, Nine Hundred Two, and Twelve Hundred models. Each case received three main upgrades, including a front panel USB 3.0 port, at least one internal 2.5-inch SSD drive bay (yes, we know that's redundant), and a CPU cutout to make quick work out of swapping heatsinks.
"We're excited to release these new models in the Performance One and Game Case series as they offer users enhanced features to keep their leading-edge performance," said Scott Richards, senior vice president of Antec. "With the new upgrades, these new models exmplify the customer-driven innovation that Antec is known for -- users are going to love the increased flexibility and performance offered in these enclosures."
Antec equipped the Performance One series with a pair of SSD drive bays, while the Gaming Case series each received one. Other upgrades include more and better cooling options, and in the case of the Nine Hundred Two V3, built-in washable air filters. Otherwise these are essentially the same enclosures as before, including the three-layer side and front panel design (aluminum, plastic, aluminum) in the P183 and dual-layer design in the P193.
The P183 V3 ($180), P193 V3 ($210), Nine Hundred Two V3 ($160), and Twelve Hundred V3 ($210) are all available now.
