I installed a full ATX motherboard, a dual core Athlon with a decently large cooler, 8GB of DDR2 RAM, an overclocked AMD/ATI 5770, two hard drives and a 600 watt power supply in this case; there was never a point where I felt like I needed more room. ...

Overall, the NZXT Hades offers a ton of value and features. The large fans are fairly quiet and fan controlled for a nearly silent build. The temperature probes are an interesting extra you don’t see in many cases, especially at the...

The NZXT Hades case impressed us with its quiet, simplistically functional performance and useful features. Starting at the front the refreshingly easy to use magnetic closure for the front door panel was a pleasure to use in addition to being quiet...

After working with this chassis, I can safely say that there's nothing hellish about NZXT's Hades mid-tower ATX case. It's feature rich with a good cable management design and a drive cage design built for maximum configuration options. The...

Once upon a time, I believed that the best case on the market was the Antec 900. Many enthusiasts still believe that, but I am no longer one of them. For me, that case is the NZXT Hades. The Hades offers superior airflow, superior cable management...

Up until the last moment, the Hades had surprised us. Build quality isactually very good and much better than previous NZXT cases we've looked at. The front door is a bit of an eye sore, but apart from that it has all the hallmarks of a great value...

The aesthetics of the NZXT Hades are the first thing to catch your eye; the exterior styling is very unique and while it may not suit the most discerning tastes, it’s not offensive and we did think the look grew on us. It does have a very...

In older Greek myths, the realm of Hades is the misty and gloomy abode of the dead (also called Erebus), where all mortals go. Later Greek philosophy introduced the idea that all mortals are judged after death and are either rewarded or cursed. Very...

NZXT is no newcomer when it comes to quality cases, and the Hades is no exception. The Hades shows that both form and function can be had in an affordable chassis. Such high points as the sleek looks, ample room, and useful cable management system are...

When building a new computer many people overlook cases. A great case design can not only help in the building of the computer, but it can also help with the cooling. Airflow is very important in a case since it can lower the temperatures of the...

The NZXT Hades is a very interesting case. It has a lot of features, and the fit and finish of the unit is really impressive. It was not an easy build compared to many other cases I’ve worked on, as proper cable routing does take some time and the...

A surprising amount of bang for your Benjamin Sartre said that hell is other people. We don’t know about that, but we know what Hades is—a steel mid-tower chassis that’s full of surprises, nearly all of them pleasant. At 7.9 inches...

The NZXT Hades case provides an excellent cost/performance ratio. It is ideal for the user that wants to build a nice system with fan speed adjustment and temperature monitoring without having to purchase another fan speed controller, and can’t...

It’s nice to see the NZXT Hades take a good step forward in internal case aesthetics by offering a solid black internal chassis paint j0b. It also goes a long way to compliment the outward case design. Unfortunately, you can’t go by...
