I don't know what I would do with those two power supplies ...

Maybe Cptn Vortex can unearth something, the P190 doesn't seem to be a hot seller.
Tell him that I would post the completed rig on the forum

While you at it maybe MpG would be interested to get a replacement ... poor guy

I remember trying to get a replacement frame for MPG way back when it happened, but not sure if anything came of it. We'll see what surfaces!

Have you ever shopped there ?

I'm starting a new job a street over from there.

D'Oh, Antec got back, they have completely sold out of all demo or B-stock P190's!

The Captain checked out that possibility back then, actually, but the Antec rep came up nil. Fortunately, I found a college buddy parting with a MM case. A little cash and beer and we were both happy.

But yeah, the P190 just never took off, and I can personally vouch that there were a number of reasons for that. First that case, and now the skeleton... I think Antec needs to find a new source of inspiration.

I can tell you first hand their NSK4480 and the Sonata are the most popular cases ever. They are literally the only cases I sell for basic systems. So they have the smb side of things covered....and their ThreeHundred is a fantastic little gamer case. But yea, its pretty hard to compete against the Silverstones and the Coolermaster's (Stackers or Cosmos), which is kinda what they were aiming for with the P190
