I'm also setting up a new system in an Antec Fusion case.

Out of interest, what's the power draw with the system shutdown?  I
figure that much of the motherboard is still powered up, so that WOL
and Wake-on-Timer can work, and I can see my capture card LEDs glowing
away so they're clearly powered up too.  I'm hoping it's just few
Watts, but it would be interesting to know for sure.
