Home Theater PCs are becoming more popular these days, and they all try to tone down that they’re a PC, trying to blend in with other Home Theater equipment. Antec’s Fustion case is one of Antec’s latest offerings for the home theater enthusiast. Antec designed this case to reduce noise and heat buildup using an innovative chamber structure, and even included a VFD display to complement your home theater software.

Combined with a highly-efficient 430W power supply with active PFC, you can rest assured that the Fusion will be a good citizen on the power grid even as it quietly records your favorite shows.
