Interior


The side panel houses the second 200mm fan for intake, although unlike the front this one does not have LEDs. The accessory kit that comes with the Hades appears fairly robust: three sets of drive rail adapters plus a fourth pre-installed in the case, a bag full of thumbscrews and other assorted mounting hardware, user manual, 3-to-4pin fan power adapter and motherboard speaker.


The motherboard tray matches the rest of the interior paint, and several holes for routing cables are positioned around the perimeter. Another large opening exists where the CPU socket should line up. The rubber grommets unfortunately tend to pop out easily, a problem we first detailed in the Tempest EVO review. Despite the double 140mm venting, with the minimal 17" height there's not really enough room to mount a radiator, unless maybe if you relocate the fans outside of the case.


The 5" rails run top to bottom at the front of the case. Only the top six have the tool-less locking clips, although they can be moved around as needed, and there's certainly plenty of thumbscrews provided for additional drives. A 2" adapter comes pre-installed in the bottom bay to mount two notebook sized SSDs or hard drives. Let's get some hardware installed into the Hades.
