This looks like a stunner:






Fits only MATX boards.
Uses a standard PSU, which is housed in a dedicated compartment.
Dual 120mm Side mounted Antec fans - 18dba each.
Tool free snap in/snap out hard drive & DVD bays.
(VFD) vacuum fluorescent display comes as standard


Pricing for the case isn't firm yet, but anticipated to be around $200

    Looks good.
    Hopefully some dimensions will come out soon.

    I wonder how they deal with CPU cooling with the fans being so close etc.

    Yeah, saw the first pics about 2 days after getting my Thermaltake Bach.
    I might have waited if I had seen it sooner.
    It's almost exactly what I asked them for via email (I'm sure they got a lot of those) so I guess they do listen.

    Not high jacking this thread, but recently I bought this case :
    http://www.3rsys.com/english/products/view.asp?navi=case&idx_num=48






    Very good finish (entirely alu), height is not enormous (14,7cm), VFD/remote, hidden card reader, nice feet. Relatively cheap (220 euros). The ventilation system though exotic works well (I’m not using the 6cm fans), the psu stays cool, the hard drive too.
    There’s a review here : http://www.anandtech.com/casecooling/showdoc.aspx?i=2614&p=2

    I’m thinking of buying a new one (for my new place), but I’m waiting to see the Antec live.

    My plan is passive CPU cooling. the Sycthe Ninja is to large, but arctic cooling make a very similar type design which is a lot smaller. With the location of the 120mm fan, you could no doubt run a decent passive cooler.

    Yeah that was my hope - but I have a dual core P4 and man that thing cooks - time will tell when it gets released.

    I LOVE the Antec fusion. The designers seem to have done some good thinking refering to the cooling and placement of different parts. Clean and simple. Really buetyfull.

    I could only find one reseller ( http://www.i-tech.com.au/products/3369_Antec_Fusion_Desktop_Case_Silver__VFD.asp )
    But $300+ is a little to expensive to my taste....
    Does anyone know other resellers?
