Antec P183 vs. 193

Besides more room and the two 140mm top exhaust+200mm big boy fan, is there any other pros?
Does the 193 have that annoying metal piece that does absolutely nothing that the 183 has? it's in this review

Also, will the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme fit in both cases?

Looks like the only real difference is the size of the fans, two fans on top and a 200mm fan on the side. The metal plate behind the bottom fan has been removed.

"The maximum height for heat sink fans with the P193 is 140mm".
The Ultra 120: L63.44 x W132 x H160.5 mm (heatsink only)

According to my conversions, 140 mm = 5.1 inches. Both cases are 8.1 inches wide so it looks like either would handle that heatsink.

I use a Xigmatek 1283 in my P182 and it fits just fine. Those cases just seem like a modified version of my case. I don't think the TRUE is too much bigger.

Yeah I have Antec p182 with Thermalright TRUE but I am not sure it will also fit P193 with that BigBoy fan on the side... :(  BUT IF ANYONE CAN CONFIRM THIS I'D BE GRATEFUL

Hey guys,
I emailed Antec on the issue, and they told me that the p183 is quieter than the p193 (probably due to the HUGE fans)...just something to keep in mind for those trying tobuild that perfectly silent computer.
