The P280 just came out 1 month ago.

What should P29x bring over P280 ? XL-ATX support ? Oh wait, P280 supports that. So, what would be the point of the P29x ? What feature will be the bonus feature to even consider designing of such case ?

You're asking about a P193 successor à la the P280? I doubt that, as the P193 V3 was released not long ago.

XL-ATX support just missed that.
I was just curious to see alternatives to P280. I bit of a larger case for example with some extra inside!!
I wonder why Antec left behind the 2 compartment design and what would that mean in terms of cooling and quiteness??Any comments on that??

Bit larger ? :shock:
P183 : 514mm (H) x 205mm (W) x 507mm (D)
P193 : 514mm (H) x 205mm (W) x 590mm (D)
P280 : 526 mm (H) x 231 mm (W) x 562 mm (D)

Actually P280 looks more like the P193 successor than P183 successor.

Good comparison. Hopefully there will be a Mini version that really is smaller than other full sized cases, and available in white of course. ;)

The P290 could support 2 480 radiators :). As well as 4 x 140 mm side fans to provide enough cooling for the GPUs.

because it was pointless, took up a lot of space inside, and made cabling difficult. i'm not sure it ever actually accomplished anything, and with a bottom vent the power supply has its own separate intake/exhaust from the rest of the case anyway.

and if you really want to, you can use cardboard to create the same effect.


the only thing i really wish this case had was 140mm fan support all around. and a door hinged from either side. and a few blocking plates in the box.
