Neo HE 430 high efficiency power supply.
NEO HE Power Supply
The Neo HE 430 power supply installed in this case supports the newest ATX12V version 2.2
specifications. Enhanced output power distribution supports the newest Intel and AMD
processor requirements. Three +12V outputs deliver safer and more reliable power to your
system's components. With up to 85% efficiency, this power supply saves energy and money on
your electrical bill compared to typical power supplies. Neo HE power supplies
generate less heat because of the high efficiency which keeps the power supply cooler and
prolongs its working life. Also included are a variety of industrial-grade protective circuitries:
OCP (over current protection), OPP (over power protection), OVP (over voltage protection),
SCP (short circuit protection), and UVP (under voltage protection).
Special Quiet Computing Fan Operation
Neo HE power supplies feature an innovative design that decreases noise during normal use, but
which allows for superior cooling capabilities as loads increase. Owing to its ultra high efficiency
and low heat generation, Neo HE can utilize an 80mm exhaust fan that rotates slowly and
quietly to blow hot air out of the power supply, speeding up as heat increases.
This power supply includes Universal Input and Active Power Factor Correction (PFC).
Universal Input allows you to connect your Neo HE power supply to any AC power outlet
between 100~240V without having to worry about setting a voltage switch. Active PFC
improves the power factor value of the power supply by altering the input current wave shape,
helping the power plant provide power to users more efficiently.

Connectors: Neo HE power supplies are ATX12V version 2.2 form factor compatible. The Neo
HE430 includes a 24-pin main power connector with detachable 4-pin connector, and a 4-pin
+12V power connector. In addition, Neo HE includes six 4-pin peripheral connectors, four
15-pin Serial ATA Connectors, and PCI Express Power Connector.
Power Switch: This power supply comes with a main power switch. Make sure you turn the switch
to the ON ( I ) position before you boot up your computer for the first time. In normal
operation there is no need to turn the switch to the OFF (O) position since the power supply is
equipped with a soft on/off feature which turns your computer on and off through the soft
switch on your computer case. You may need to turn the switch to the OFF position
occasionally should your computer crash and you cannot shut it down with the soft switch.
Advanced Cable Management System - Neo HE power supplies feature Antec's Advanced Cable
Management System. It allows you to use only the power cables that you need, thereby reducing
clutter and improving airflow inside your case. Inside the package, apart from a power cord, you
will find the following cables (see Picture 1):

Hard Disk Installation
This case offers two hard disk mounting options. We recommend against using both mounting
methods at the same time.
Tray Mount
There is a hard disk cage right under the external 5.25" drive. You can mount four hard drives
using the trays inside it.
1. Open the front bezel as described in Setting Up section.
2. Loosen the two thumbscrews. Swing open the fan cage and gently lift the cage upward to
remove it. You will see four drive trays with soft silicon grommets inside the cage.
3. Squeeze the metal clips on each side of the tray and slide the tray out.
4. Mount your hard drive into the drive tray through the bottom silicon grommets with the
special screws provided. Note: Don't over-tighten. Over-tightening the screws will harm the
vibration and noise reduction qualities of the silicon grommets.
5. Slide and lock the tray back into the case.
6. Find the appropriate power connector on the power supply and connect it to the device.
7. Repeat the same procedure for the other devices as necessary.
8. Put the front fan cage back to the case. If you plan to mount the optional 92 mm case fans,
you should do it now. See Cooling section for fan installation.
Suspension Mount
This is the ultimate hard disk mounting solution to reduce hard drive noise. There are three sets
of suspenders inside the cage to mount three hard drives. Each hard drive needs two suspenders
(front and rear) to mount. Note: please DO NOT transport your system with your hard disks
suspension mounted. The drives may slip from the suspenders causing damage to the hard
drives and to other components inside the case.
1. Remove the trays from the cages. Store them in a safe place. You won't
need them.
2. Twist the front suspender as shown in Picture 4.
3. Insert the hard drive through the front suspender from the front.
See Picture 5.
4. Twist the rear suspender and guide the hard drive through it. See Picture 6.
5. Adjust the hard drive position so it has al least 10mm clearance from the
front 92 mm fan (fan not included).
6. Find the appropriate power connector on the power supply and connect it to
the device.
7. Repeat the same procedure for the other drives as necessary.
8. Put the front fan cage back to the case. If you plan to mount the optional
92 mm case fans, you should do it now. See Cooling system section for fan
installation

5.25" Device Installation
There are four external 5.25" drive bays (one with 5.25" to 3.5" adapter). The top two drive
bays come with a universal drive door that allows you to hide your optical drive behind the door.
1. Carefully remove the metal plate covering the drive bay.
2. Take two plastic drive rails and mount them to the sides of the 5.25" device. Make sure to
use the rear set of the screw holes on the drive rails for the top two drive bays and use the
front set of screw holes for the lower two drive bays. Also make sure the clip on the end of
the drive rail is angled away from the device and facing forward.
7
3. Slide the device into the drive bay until you hear a click.
4. Mount the other devices accordingly.
5. Connect a large 4-pin connector from the power supply to the male 4-pin connector on each
of the devices.
To install a floppy or other external 3.5" device to the 5.25" to 3.5" adapter:
1. Slide the adapter out.
2. Place the drive to the adapter and fasten the drive with screws provided.
3. Find a 4-pin floppy power connector on the power supply and connect it to the male 4-pin
connector on the devices.
Cable Organizer
There are six hooks (cable organizers) located at the back of the hard drive cage. With them
you can tuck cables away to increase the airflow of the case. To get to the cable organizer you
need to open the right side panel.
Cooling System
The TriCool fan:
The case includes one 120mm TriCool fan installed in the rear. This fan has a three-speed switch
that lets you choose between quiet, performance, or maximum cooling. (See specifications
below.) The fan is installed so that the air is blowing out of the case. Connect a large 4-pin
connector from the power supply to the male 4-pin connector on the fan.
Note: The minimum voltage to start the fan is 5V. We recommend setting the fan speed to
High if you choose to connect the fan to a fan control device or to the Fan-Only connector
found on some of Antec's power supplies. A fan-controlled device regulates the fan speed by
varying the voltage supplied to it. The voltage may start as low as 4.5 V to 5V. Connecting a
TriCool set on Medium or Low to a fan-control device may result in the fan not being able to
start. The already lowered voltage from the fan control device will be further reduced by the
TriCool circuitry below 5V.

The Front 92 mm Fan Mounts
You can install two 92 mm fans to the fan cage in front of the internal 3.5" drives. These fans
must be installed so that the air is blowing into the case. We recommend using Antec 92 mm
TriCool fans to balance quiet performance with maximum cooling. See our web site for product
information. Note: Please choose your fan speed wisely. In most cases, a medium or even low
speed setting will be enough to supply adequate cooling.
8
The Washable Air Filter
There is a washable air filter attached to the front of the 92 mm fan cage. From time to time it
will be necessary to wash the installed air filter. Not washing the air filter will result in higher
system temperatures and possible stability problems. We recommend checking the air filter at
least once a month initially. The frequency will change depending on system usage (users whose
systems run 24/7 will likely have to check/wash more often than those who don't use their
systems every day) and on environmental conditions.
