Experience with hades ? - Page 3

post #21 of 22

The cases on that site are super expensive...Sorry that you don't have better alternatives!

The CM 690 II Basic comes out to $130 and the Window Version is $150.

If you're set on the NZXT style, I prefer the Lexa S $116 to the Hades and saves you some cash as well. Though the Hades does some to better stock cooling.

3dgameman video review of the Lexa S (he reviews the window version $140).


review of the Hades:

I didn't see much else in that price range that jumped out at me. Good luck!

The airflow is beast. Your components get really chilled, and if it wasn't for the incompatibility, I would still have it.

Oh, and I believe that NZXT offers you all the remaining fans for free, which in this case, means the 140mm fan that is not included in the top.
the air cooling is very good, i have a noctua nh-d14 in mine i had to remove the side fan and mount it on the outside
if this is not an option then you will be limited to what cpu coolers you can use. i think the clearance is only 140mm.

P.S. if you do get the case, do not be fooled as I was. The power button is NOT the big grey button behind the door, that is the restart button :facepalm: the power button is actually on the front, towards the middle. It glows red when it's on.
revival
what did you go for?
i am happy enough with mine, i had a tight budget and this was the best for what i could afford.
