Crafted series mid-tower

Trying to take part in the holiday shopping season, NZXT has launched a new mid-tower case in its Crafted series, the Hades. The full steel Hades has all the features that enthusiasts would look in a case including bunch of well positioned coolers, pre-drilled holes for water cooling, enough room for decent cable management, and an eye-catching design.

As far as the specs go, the Hades has a total of nine 5.25-inch bays, four internal 3.5-inch drive mounts, support for 30cm graphics cards, a total of five fans, dual 8W fan controller for two 200mm fans, a small display for temperature monitoring, motherboard punched holes for cable management and CPU backplate mounting, support for top mounted dual fan water-cooling radiator and much more.

The entire cooling is done by front mounted 200mm red LED fan in front, 200mm side fan, 120mm exhaust rear fan, and one 140mm on the top. It has room for additional 120/140mm fan on the top but that one isn't included with the case.

The dimensions of this steel mid-tower Hades are 200 X 430 X 501 mm and it weighs 6.59kg. The entire case is made out of black painted steel except for the front panel which is made out of plastic.

The design is something that you either like or not and it is purely subjective so you can judge by yourself from those pictures below. With the US $89.99 and €69.99 price tag, it certainly sounds appealing.
