    Looking at the space left at the end, it seem likely it's designed to be partnered with a sealed watercooling unit. The back panel appears to have reservoir mounts, and the CPU cooler would be a lot smaller too.

    Those panels are shared with the Hadron Hydro, which is the watercooling version of the Hadron Air. It can accomodate one 240mm rad in its extended roof.

    I liked the Hadron when they showed it off at Computex but the price... Also CPU cooling might be hard, but some of the 92mm class coolers could fit IIRC. I'd go Zalman CNPS5X if I had the money for a system like this.

    The 500W Gold PSU goes some way to justifying the price but ow...

    Re: Reviews - EVGA Hadron Air

    With the PSU covering most of the ventilation in the bottom of the chassis and no ventilation in the front I don't think high end GPU's will be very happy.
    It's a good looking case and sounds well made but i'm not seeing much innovation for all that money.

    The rear side panel is perforated around the bottom so cool air intake so you wont be having GPU meltdowns.

    Re: Reviews - EVGA Hadron Air

    I watched a review on youtube, it seemed that you could hear the PSU fan going once under load, I don't get why they didn't just put a thin 80 or 120mm on top or under it. I think I'll go with the Lian Li Suit case chassis for my own Mini-ITX build, but I was really considering this case for a while.

    Re: Reviews - EVGA Hadron Air

    It ultimately fails for me as the usb and audio ports are side mounted which defeats the slimmness of the case and makes access difficult if the case is in a tight space.
    At least a slimline dvd slot would be a bonus.

    For £170 there are much better and cheaper options than this.

    Re: Reviews - EVGA Hadron Air

    I would be expecting a modular PSU at this price point, but does look like a nice case, though not sure if its the pictures, but looks like they is a foot at the front of the case that makes the whole thing slope backwards?
    They come from the dark and slice your head off

    It's a compact PSU intended for a high end ITX board and GPU in a very cramped chassis. A modular PSU would compromise the form factor. And there's not going to be much in the way of excess wiring or optional power cables anyway (maybe an unused molex chain which can be easily tucked around the rear side of the PSU). From the builds I've seen, the case innards will more or less be dominated by the CPU cooler and the GPU card. I'll probably give it a shot for my next build.
