You can connect either the AC’97 or the HDA connector, depending on your motherboard. Locate the
internal audio connectors from your motherboard or sound card and connect the corresponding audio
cable. Consult your motherboard or sound card manual for the pin-out positions. Even if your system
supports both standards, only use one connector.

3.3 POWER SWITCH / RESET SWITCH / HARD DISK DRIVE LED CONNECTORS
Connected to your front panel are LED and switch leads for power, reset, and
HDD LED activity. Attach these to the corresponding connectors on your
motherboard. Consult your motherboard manual for specific pin header
locations. For LEDs, colored wires are positive ( + ). White or black wires are
negative ( – ). If the LED does not light up when the system is powered on, try
reversing the connection. For more information on connecting LEDs to your
motherboard, see your motherboard user’s manual.
Note: Polarity (positive and negative) does not matter for switches.
3.4 REWIRING MOTHERBOARD HEADER CONNECTIONS
There may come a time when you need to reconfigure the pin-out of a motherboard header connector.
Examples could be for your USB header, audio input header, or some other front panel connector such
as the Power Button connector.
Before performing any work, please refer to your motherboard user’s manual or your motherboard
manufacturer's website to be sure of the pin-out needed for your connector. We strongly recommend
making a notated drawing before beginning work so that you can recover if your work gets disturbed.
1.
2.
3.
Determine which wires you need to remove in order to rewire your
plug to match the USB pin-outs on your motherboard (refer to your
motherboard user’s manual). Working on one connector at a time,
use a very small flathead screwdriver or similar tool to lift up on
the black tab located beside the gold posts (squares). This will
allow you to easily slide out the pins from the USB plug.
Working carefully so as not to damage the wires, connectors, or
pins, slowly remove the pin from the connector. Repeat these
steps for each wire you need to change.
Working carefully so as not to damage the wires, connectors or
pins, slowly reinsert the pin into the correct slot of the connector,
then snap closed the black tab that was lifted in step 1. Repeat
these steps for each wire you need to change.

COOLING SYSTEM
4.1
TRICOOL™ FAN
Top TriCool™ Fan – The case comes with a 200mm top exhaust blue LED fan. The fan is installed so the
air will be blown out of the case. This fan comes with a three-speed switch that let you choose the speed
best suited to your need. The default fan speed setting is Low.

Note: The minimum voltage to start a typical TriCool™ fan is 5V. We recommend that you set the
fan speed to High if you choose to connect the fan(s) to a fan control device or to the FanOnly connector found on some Antec power supplies. A fan control device regulates the fan
speed by varying the voltage, which may start as low as 4.5V to 5V. Connecting a TriCool™
fan set on Low to a fan-control device may result in the fan not being able to start because
the already lowered voltage from the fan control device will be further reduced by the
TriCool™ circuitry below 5V.

4.2
TWOCOOL™ FAN
Rear TwoCool™ Fan – There is a 120 x 25mm TwoCool™ fan preinstalled at the rear of the case. The fan
is installed so the air will be blown out of the case. This fan comes with a two-speed switch that let you
choose the speed best suited to your need. The default fan speed setting is Low.

speed by varying the voltage, which may start as low as 4.5V to 5V. Connecting a TwoCool™
fan set on Low to a fan-control device may result in the fan not being able to start because
the already lowered voltage from the fan control device will be further reduced by the
TwoCool™ circuitry below 5V.

4.3
OPTIONAL FANS
There are a total of three optional 120mm fan mounts—one side intake fan (on the left side panel) and
two front intake fans (at the front of the HDD cage). We recommend using Antec 120mm speed control
fans and setting the speed to Low. These fans must be installed so that the air is blowing into the case.
Side Fan – The side fan enhances graphic cards cooling.
The fan should be installed so air is blowing into the case.
To install the side fan:
1. Remove the windowed side panel as described in
section 2.1, and take two silicone grommets from
the tool box.
2. Attach the silicone grommets to the two
compatible holes in the fan mount. Squeeze the
shorter end of the grommets into the apertures
until they lock into position.
3. Secure your 120mm fan to the two silicone
grommet mounts with the included screws on the
inside of the side panel. The fan should be
installed so that air is blowing into the case.
Front Fans – You can install two 120mm fans to the fan
cages in front of the hard drive bays. To install the front
fans:
1. Remove the front bezel as described in section
2.1.
2. Depress the two tabs on the right side of the
black fan holder and swing it outward. The holder
will easily pull free of the chassis.
3. Secure your 120mm fan(s) to the fan holder with
the provided screws. The fan should be installed
so that air is blowing into the case.
4. Reattach the fan holder to the case by inserting
the right side into the corresponding slots on the
front of the case, then rotating the holder back
into position until it clicks into place.
Note: In order to build a quieter system, Antec recommends NOT installing the optional fans unless
it is necessary for cooling. If you choose to install them we recommend using Antec 120mm
TriCool™ fans and setting the speed to Low.
12
4.4
WASHABLE AIR FILTERS
Occasionally, it will be necessary to wash the air filters. Not washing the filters may result in high system
temperatures and possible stability problems. We recommend checking the air filters at least once a
month initially. The frequency will change depending on environmental conditions and system usage.
Users who run their systems 24/7 will have to check their filters more often than those who don’t run
their systems every day.
Front Air Filter – There is an air filter located behind the
front bezel.
To remove the filter:
1. Remove the front bezel as listed in section 2.1.
The filter is located on the inside of the bezel.
2. Pull up on the left side of the air filter. The left
side will detach.
3. Swing it open until the filter separates from the
bezel.
