Default EVGA Hadron Chassis Opinions?

EVGA Hadron Chassis Unboxing and Overview - YouTube

What do you guys think? I think it looks very nice and elegant - but me personaly I would be more interested in the Watercooled version. I also wonder how the air flow would be in this case.

Cant HarwareCanucks ask for a review sample? I would love to see a propper good Canucks review of this case.

Hmm is 500W enough for modern hardware and GPU especially when people OC with the Hadron Hydra?

I like the case a ton. If I didn't just go SLI hawk I would be all over this bad boy. I've wanted to go itx for quite some time but have yet to find a case I am pleased with. Hadron is the closest thing now. My only critique would be that they should have made the front panel something other than gloss and have the psu possibly modular or semi modular. Also would be nice to be able to mount an AIO but I guess you can't have everything in such a tiny case.


..... it looks absolutely nothing like the prodigy. the outside and the internal layout.

For a single card configuration, definitely. Power requirements have been reduced in recent years. It's actually modern hardware that makes a 500W PSU viable again.

Not sure why they thought a 40mm fan was a good choice for the power supply.

I am very interested in this case, but the non-modular PSU throws me off....Why would they not include that??!!
