NZXT Hades Case Review

Introduction (Cont’d)
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

In Figure 7, you can see the top panel from Hades. It comes with a 140 mm fan installed there (no technical specs are published for this fan). This fan comes connected in parallel with the rear fan and both connected to one of the speed controllers. You can, if you want, make a different configuration (e.g., disconnect one of the fans from the controller and connect it on the motherboard or directly on the power supply). There is a space for you installing a second fan on the top panel, which can be either a 120 mm or a 140 mm model.

The traditional external connectors from the case are available on the top panel, as you can see in Figure 8. On Hades we have two USB ports (which are too close to each other) and one eSATA port, plus the mic in and headphones out jacks.

On Hades the power supply is installed on the bottom of the case, and the product comes with a removable (and washable) air filter on the bottom panel, matching the power supply bottom fan.

Finally we have the rear panel in Figure 10. As you can see, the rear panel is painted black. As mentioned, the power supply goes on the bottom part of the case, and Hades follows the traditional ATX design, with seven expansion slots. All slot covers are meshed, feature that can improve airflow inside the case. Two holes protected by rubber covers are available on a mesh above the expansion slots for you to pass hoses from liquid cooling solutions. A 120 mm fan is available on the rear panel (once again, no word about its technical specs), coming attached to the speed controller available on the front panel.
