EVGA Hadron Hydro Mini-ITX Chassis Black with 500W 80Plus Gold Power Supply (110-MW-1002-K1)
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Excellent cooling options.
-Very cool looking design
-Fits full size Graphics cards (very snug)

Cons: -No cable management
-usb 3.0 cable too short for F2A88XN motherboard

Other Thoughts: So i have built two systems with the hdyro and non hydro version of this case. They look awesome when complete and feel very high quality. The last system i built was for an on site film crew. It had 2 4tb raid drives and a 250gb ssd. Fitting three drives in this case took some creativity, but i found that the SSD could fit between the two raid drives. A bit snug but it works, a hint for putting the ssd in is to reverse its position so that the cable comes around the back of the drive bay. I coupled this with an FM2+ processor and 16gb of ram and this machine is the absolute best portable film production machine ever!
If you are a noob to system building, i don't recommend starting with this case, it will give you a headache trying to figure out how to run these cables without them covering the fans. If your not a noob this case provides a fun and rewarding experience.

Pros: -Great performance
-Excellent APU
-Best Budget builder available
-Finished system scored a 270 in Solid Works Benchmark

Cons: None, maybe a better heatsink, but a good case can compensate.

Other Thoughts: Anonymous said he wouldn't use this as a workstation, but the Solid Works score is very high, comparable to an i7 with a gaming GC. Of course a workstation card like the nvidia Quadro would be better than an APU, but you could add one to any build. For a budget minded consumer trying to edit video, this thing is the best you can get for under $1000 for a complete build. Haven't benchmarked it for video editing, but paired with an SSD and 16gb of ram, I'm sure it will be a screamer.
