Fusion 430 / Fusion Black 430 User’s Manual
Fusion 430 / Fusion Black 430 – Media Center Case
The Power Supply
The Fusion 430 and Fusion Black 430 come with a 430 Watt high efficiency power supply, compliant with the ATX12V version 2.01 specification. This power supply features Universal Input, Active PFC, a single 80mm fan, and dual 12V output rails that deliver safer and more reliable output to your system’s components.
In addition, it features a variety of
Turn the switch to the ON (I) position before you boot up the computer for the first time. Normally, you won’t need to switch to the OFF (O) position, since the power supply includes a soft on/off feature which lets you turn the computer on and off by using the soft switch on the computer case. If the computer crashes and you can’t shut it down using the soft switch, you can switch the main power of the power supply to the OFF (O) position to clear the fault, then reboot.
This power supply features Power Factor Correction (PFC) circuitry in accordance with European standard regulation code
Although care has been taken to prevent sharp edges in your Antec case, we strongly recommend taking the appropriate time and care when working with it. Avoid hurried or careless motions and the use of excessive force.
Please use reasonable precaution.
1.Place the case upright on a flat, stable surface.
2.Remove the thumbscrew from the back of the top panel. Slide the panel towards the rear to remove it from the case.
3.Inside the case you should see the power supply, some wiring with marked connectors (USB, PWR etc.), an installed I/O panel and a power cord.
The Triple Chamber structure
Upon opening the top panel, you will find that the case is divided into three chambers
– the power supply chamber, the motherboard chamber and the HDD chamber. This triple chamber structure isolates the heat and noise within each chamber, resulting in much quieter and cooler operation than a traditional desktop case design.
Installing the Motherboard
This manual does not cover CPU, RAM, or expansion card installation.
Please consult your motherboard manual for specific mounting instructions and troubleshooting.
The motherboard is located inside the main chamber with two 120mm TriCool™ fans preinstalled at the side of the case next to the CPU for effective CPU cooling.
1.Lay the case down, with the top open. The drive chamber and power supply should be visible.
2.Make sure you have the correct I/O panel for your motherboard. If the panel provided with the case isn’t suitable, please contact your motherboard manufacturer for the correct I/O panel.
3.Line up your motherboard with the standoff holes, and remember which holes are lined up. Not all motherboards will match with all the provided holes; this is normal and won’t affect functionally.
4.Remove your motherboard by lifting it up.
5.Screw the brass standoffs into the threaded holes that line up with your motherboard. Do not
6.Place your motherboard on the brass standoffs.
7.Screw in your motherboard to the standoffs with the provided
Connecting the Power and LED
The power supply conforms to the ATX12V Version 2.01 standard and is backwards compatible with most previous ATX12V form factor motherboards. Before you connect the power supply to any of your devices, please consult the appropriate user manuals for your motherboard and other peripherals.
Note: This power supply does not provide a

5.The Hard Drive LED (labeled HDD LED) connects to the hard drive activity header.
The fan speed can be monitored through the BIOS or special monitoring software that came with your motherboard. To ensure proper monitoring of the power supply fan, please check your motherboard manual.
Note: At low temperatures, the fan may run as slow as 750 RPM (±10%). At these speeds, some motherboards may not properly detect the fan speed and may generate false warnings of fan failure.

The Bottom Air Intake
There are intake vents at the bottom of the case right under the HDD chamber. Cool air will flow into the vents through the hard drives, and then flow into the motherboard chamber and exhaust by the two 120mm TriCool™ fans.
Note: Do not place the Fusion v2 on a soft surface or over anything that will block the bottom air vents.
The Upper Air Intake
There are vents on the top panel above the PCI expansion slot. Cool air will flow through it into the motherboard chamber to cool the VGA card.
Note: Do not place anything on top ofthe Fusion 430 that will block the top air vents.
The Rear Air Intake
There are vents right above the rear I/O panel and on the PCI expansion slot covers to bring in cool air to the CPU and VGA card.
CPU Air Guide
When used with the CPU Air Guide, fresh air from the rear air intake can be directed to the CPU cooler to enhance the CPU cooling. The CPU Air Guide can be adjusted by adding or removing stacking sections to best suit different motherboard CPU positions.
The Power Supply Air Intake
There are vents on the left side of the case to bring cool air into the power supply chamber to cool the power supply.
Note: Please leave at least 1” (2.5cm) between the left side of the case and anything that could block airflow to the power supply. This is required in order for the power supply will have sufficient cooling.
