Closer Look: Exterior
The NZXT Hades series case is quite stunning to look at. The sharp lines and all black look give it a very sleek shape and feel to it. There are elements of both form and functionality implemented in a variety of ways on this chassis. This section will highlight some of the basic and obvious external features of this case.
This is an image of the case from the front looking at the removable side used for component installation. Notice the large fan grille for the 200mm fan located on the side of the case. Notice the forward facing vent which serves for airflow purposes, and it also looks good too.
This is a picture of the opposite side of the case. This side is where you hide the nasty tangle of cables that is inevitable when building a system. It also features a stylish looking air vent to allow airflow from the bottom side of the motherboard.
Here is a picture showing the top of the case. There are two openings with mountings for two ##mm fans. Additionally, there are 2 USB ports, a Mic/Headphone Jack, as well as a firewire port. I am not particularly fond of having these ports on the top of the case, as it prevents the case from being enclosed in a small space within a desk or similar, while still making use of the ports. I prefer them to be on the front.
