Introducing the Hades, a chassis that provides an array of advanced features for the most demanding PC enthusiast. Airflow is optimized with 5 fans (dual 200mm intake, 200 mm front fan, dual top 140mm fans, side 200mm fan, and rear 120mm exhaust). NZXT includes all the fans with the exception of the top 140mm and also provides a dual fan 8W per channel controller giving enthusiasts freedom to manage intake and exhaust airflow. A three temperature display on the front panel allows the user to see the temperature inside the chassis even when the door is closed. Additionally, the meshed 5.25" bays, door, and bottom panel allows for air to naturally flow into the system with ease.

Hades also boasts premium expandability with up to nine 5.25" bay setup or five 5.25" and four 3.5." It also features VGA clearance room for 300mm cards like the new ATI 5970. The punched side panel and motherboard tray with rubber grommets on the motherboard routing holes enables advanced wire management and quick CPU bracket removal. Additional advanced features include a solid state bracket allowing for two SSD drives, pre-drilled water cooling holes on the backplate, mounting holes for a dual radiator at the top, and a removable filter at the bottom PSU.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredibly impressed 2 years later!

Pros: - Not a single sharp edge
- Lots of bays
- Amazing airflow
- 2.5" adapter supports 2 drives
- The case has instructions etched into it.
- Quality Hardware [hand screws, and plenty, colored screwes for the MB mount. Quick release for drive bays]

Cons: I have little to complain about. Perhaps another 2.5" adapter. The 4th fan? I don't know, I have never had a case of this quality so, there you go.

Other Thoughts: I bought this case on accident. Was going to use it, but didnt' come with a power supply. The last time i did system building was 15 years ago and quality was questionable then. It wasn't a build unless you bled.

As a result, I used another cheap RAIDMAX case [and bled!] that came with a PS. I've decided to upgrade, thought I'd bring this out. Glad I did [and ordered a power supply]

It was a pleasure to put this together. I was impressed by the details and quality of work. The instructions are etched into the case [how to place the HDD, which screws for what motherboard, How to be a better lover, it was shocking. Maybe I have low standards or haven't experienced quality because I was cheap thinking 'all cases are the same'. Nope.

Spoil yourself a little, it's worth it.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Case & Great Customer Service

Pros: Plenty of space, and it looks evil. What's not to like?

Cons: Not NZXT's fault, but UPS decided to use the case as a soccer ball and one of the hinges on the front panel was missing. I contacted NZXT and let them know a replacement hinge and that I could install it myself. I get a package from UPS entire new front panel. Now i have a spare fan/thermometer in the event something happens to the new one.

Other Thoughts: Recommend this case to anyone wanting a menacing looking case for a good price.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Looks awesome. Lots of fans. Temp readings on the front are cool. Built well.

Cons: Not really a con to this case. However, if you plan on running a massive aftermarket air cooler the side 200m fan will get in the way. You can easily take the fan out though.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: - Looks slick
- Nice red lighting
- Plenty of air flow
- Temperature display (C and F)
- Easy tooless drive bays

Cons: - Noisy included fans (at least some of them)
- Bit cramped

Other Thoughts: Had this case going on a year and since the beginning I've been meaning to change out the fans as they're the source of my only gripe with it (and my machine runs pretty hot). The large front and side fans work great, the top one not so much. Great case in nearly every regard though.

3 out of 5 eggsNot what I expected

Pros: -Looks awesome
-Fan controls are a plus
-Convenient top I/O for on the desk or under the desk
-Decent cable management
-Keeps everything about 8 degrees cooler switching from a Cooler Master something-or-other, can't remember exactly what

Cons: -Factory derp (see other thoughts)
-Power button is pretty sneaky, I found it on accident
-No 3.5" drive bays, it's all adapters
-Pretty cramped

Other Thoughts: When I took the case out of the box, I heard some metal piece rattling around, I figured it was just some loose hardware like a screw or something. I opened the case and found a pin dinkin' around on the inside, so I checked the door, and sure enough the top hinge pin was missing. After a little while I was able to fit the pin into the hole to keep the door from going everywhere, but then there was no snap ring to keep it in place, SO, I took one of the little rings that comes with the included hardware and fitted that over the notch in the pin, and it seems to be holding alright. Still, that was an extra 20 minutes that shouldn't have been necessary. Docked an egg for that.

5 out of 5 eggs6 Eggs - Project Nanosuit

Pros: - Holds triple radiator (360mm) on top without modifying or cutting.
- Room for RAID with huge fan in front of HDD's.
- Temperature readings work flawlessly.
- Fan controller pushes three 120mm Yate Loons (high speed) at 100% output on a single channel. My old therm*lt*ke fan controller had trouble pushing a single fan.
- Looks great, all black, dim red LED fan.
-Tons of great airflow.
- Holds two EVGA GTX460 cards.
- Exterior mesh catches all the dust, interior is nearly dust-free. It is literally the cleanest rig I've ever owned. Just have to vacuum off the outside filters once in a while.
- Magnetic door keeper, triple hinges and they look better than competitors.
- Plenty of extra room behind the rear panel to tuck wires. Since the rear panel is angled out, it allows more free-space. Hard to explain, you just have to own one and see it in person to know how useful it is.

Cons: - The top fan was cheap and a fan blade literally came flying off one day when I turned the fans up. Just replaced it with a 130mm quality fan. Good riddance because it turns out that fan was not balanced well and made some noise and vibration.
- Wish it were a bit stronger. I know strength and weight are proportional, but I had to reinforce a handle grip I fitted to the rear.

Other Thoughts: Just buy it. This case seems to incorporate a lot of features from the $300 range cases. When NZXT developed this case, they were thinking about both function and form. Using this case, you will be able to tell it was well thought out and provides more than enough of everything.

I have a video of the case but Newegg does not like the format.

4 out of 5 eggsA decent case for the cost

Pros: Looks nice. Plenty of fans + additional fan slots. Temp display. Fan controller. Price.

Cons: Fans break easily. The fan I bought to replace my front 200mm fan would not fit in the space even though it was 200mm also. Also, some PC coolers may not clear the side fan. I did not have this trouble with a stock cooler on a lower wattage CPU

Other Thoughts: It's a good case for the price, but I wish there were not the space and fan problems.

3 out of 5 eggsThought it was goign to be better

Pros: Cool looking, great CPU cut out that allows changing and update of CPU cooling. Drive installation ok, not great.

Cons: With all the write-ups from MaximumPC and the feedback thought this case could handle everything I was going to throw at it. My mistake, I didn't do enough research. Got a H70 CPU cooler to allow for OC in the future. Two fans have to come out to allow that installation with my ASUS motherboard and GSkill memory height and the H70. Had to cut the wires on one fan to get it out. Have a free fan port but none of the removed fans can be re-located there due to size and clearance with Gskill memory. Not a major hickup, but wasn't planning on it. Like more information on wiring for the fans and fan controls. Nothing in box and going to have to do some trial and error.

Other Thoughts: All in all a solid case, it would have paid to do more homework on the interior space relative to the other devices I was installing. My bad, lesson learned. Would like a quick disconnect on front panel controls to make assembly and disassembly easier.

5 out of 5 eggsI love this case!

Pros: This is a truly phenomenal case. The build quality all around is great. The cooling ability of this case is really amazing. It's not completely silent but you hear more "air" noise then any irritating fan noise since the fans are larger. Even then I can't hear it over anything else running in my room anyway so it's not an issue. Between the front 200mm fan and the side 200mm fan you really get a massive amount of air through this case. It runs cooler than any case I've ever owned (down here in hot Florida). I love the top exhaust fans as it allowed my Xigmatek heatsink to shoot the hot air straight out of the top so I didn't have to buy the other bracket. Cable routing is awesome as I have nearly all the cables on the backside of the motherboard.

Cons: After building the whole computer, turning it on and seeing that everything was ok when I went to plug in the side fan one of the blades was slightly off balance and kept lightly hitting the side mesh making an irritating clicking sound. I just needed to unmount the fan and put a little pressure the other way on the fan and that got rid of the issue. Nothing major but just an FYI in case anyone else runs into that issue.

Other Thoughts: I'd highly recommend this case. Aesthetically it looks great and I love how the red lights on the front are subtle and not BLINDING like many blue leds on a case. It just gives a light glow that looks pretty awesome. I also love how the power button is part of the center of the face and doesn't look like a normal button and the temperature display is a huge plus. The only thing I wish this case had was a small window so I could see the gorgeous interior of this case with the Asrock 870 Extreme 3 motherboard. All my components really matched well and would be a great sight with the solid black interior of this case, oh well!

5 out of 5 eggsVery Happy

Pros: This is a solid case for the price. Painted well on the inside and out. All the edges are very smooth and it's spacious inside for clean wiring.
Outside of the case is clean and not tacky at all. The door construction is very strong and solid. The LED temp indicators work well when installed correctly.
2.5" drive mount is included which is a nice thing to have when using SSD's

Cons: The external front panel for audio, USB, and eSATA connections can easily be disconnected when installing the CD drive in the top bay.
The thumb screws can be a little crummy. The chroming on the screws can be a little thick which is what will strip the holes that hold the side doors closed in the back.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these when they went on sale for half price. One I used to build a new multimedia/Gaming PC which is fantastic. The other I used to house my old computer's innards which was a task.

I wish there was better documentation that came with the case that would of helped with the wiring that was already going on with the case out of the box and a bit more help with the thermal readers.
