Door fan can interfere with larger coolers, Hard drive racks a bit involved
Slightly cramped interior, Troublesome cable management grommets, Drive installation more involved than most cases

Some CPU coolers may not clear side fan.
No reset button, Tons of fans are noisy
NZXT forgot the put the specialty screws for mounting the HDD. Can’t just go buy them from your local hardware store, I would be willing to pay a couple extra bucks for a larger, incolor owner’s manual. The one with the unit uses very small.
Unable to mount liquid cooling radiator with provided mounts
Can’t use large CPU coolers or even average sized ones, Not really room for larger video cards depending on configuration, Not really much room inside of case at all

As we’ve come to expect from NZXT, the Hades is another unique chassis with appealing visuals. In terms of cooling, the Hades has a lot to offer with the four fan system although the noise levels might irk some users. The temperature sensor...

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...
