Antec Fusion Media Center Case

  • Summary: The review of the Fusion Media Center Case went extremely well thanks to the great design and quality features that the case brings to a home theater setup. This case is by far the best I have used in terms of routing wires, optimizing airflow, and reducing clutter. The two included 120mm TriCool fans are in a great location to keep the motherboard and CPU area cool, and there is only a one degree difference in CPU temperature with or without a fan on the cooler since...
  • Pros: » Three chamber design, » Two 120mm TriCool fans have speed controls and provide effective cooling, » Very quiet operation thanks to low noise fans and vibration isolation elements, » Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD) is useful and attractive, » Volume knob
  • Cons: » mATX only support

  • Excerpt: Antec once again has delivered a knockout product, and one that I'm very pleased with. Sure, there's a few little problems here and there, but nothing that diminishes the overall design of the case.While the insides are tight, there's room for everything a small media center will need, and everything fits properly, without any fiddling.

Antec Fusion Media Center Case

6 September 2006
  • Conclusion: As is the Fusion is an excellent HTPC case, some people might have the USB receiver/remote for Windows Media Center but I did not, if you do then you are set with the Fusion . I really like the looks of the Fusion, it is basically the perfect HTPC case, it is very quiet and keeps the heat down as well, Antec has again proven they are one of the best case designers out there. DragonSteelMods gives the Antec Fusion a 5 out of 5 score and our Recommended Award as well.

  • Summary: I bet a lot of you have not yet considered building a Home Theatre PC. I built my first one three years ago and since that time there hasn't been a day I haven't used it. Once you start recording your favorite TV shows and watch all your Divx/Xvid movies on the big screen there is no going back. The Antec Fusion makes the perfect chassis to build a mid to high end HTPC using a MicroATX sized motherboard.
  • Pros: Cool looks

Antec Fusion Media Center Case

Hardware Zone
10 April 2007
  • Conclusion: The thermal isolation idea has worked quite well in the Antec P180 and it seems only logical to apply it to a HTPC casing, where heat and subsequently noise are important design considerations. However, this is not merely about shrinking the P180 into the dimensions of a HTPC enclosure and leaving it at that. What Antec perhaps did not consider adequately for the Fusion was space requirements and proper cable management, which resulted in a big hassle for installation.
