Not too long ago we tested the third version of the Antec's Sonata case. This time we have another updated case from Antec in our hands. The Fusion cases are part of Antec's Veris family and they are designed for HTPC use. They have the looks but are they up to the task?

Package and content



The case came once again well packed and despite the cardboard box being bruised the case itself had no damage.


• Windows MCE & VISTA™ compatible IR receiver included for use with remote control
• Quiet high-efficiency 430 Watt ATX12V v2.01 power supply with universal input and active PFC
• 2 x sidemounted 120mm TriCool™ 3-speed fans
• 3 Drive Bays:
             - Front Accessible: 1 x 5.25”
             - Internal 2 x 3.5”
• Dimensions: 5.5” (H) x 17.5” (W)* x 16.3” (D)
• Net Weight: 18.7lbs / 8.5kg

*) Normal hifi/AV-equipments are 43,5 cm wide, but Fusion is 44,5 cm. The difference of one centimeter might not sound radical, but when you stack the Fusion with some 43,5 cm wide amplifier the difference is easy to see. Pretty unfortunate error in design aestethically.



The bundle contains the usual items: an user manual, a driver CD for the LCD-display, a power cord and a bag of screws. Besides these however there are also a plastic plate to cover one of the 120 mm fan places when only one fan is used. The three pieces also seen in the picture can be used as air guide depending on how the CPU socket is located on the motherboard used. Even though there's an IR-receiver in the Fusion, the remote isn't included in the bundle.
