Features:

Although super expensive cases are always fun to look at, they are priced out of reach of most consumers.  The NZXT Hades case is priced to sell at a point that makes it appeal to almost everyone.  It has a better build quality than the Beta I really like the exterior design of the case.  Front ventilation combined with a nice large side fan, provide excellent intake airflow and the rear and top fans allow the hot air to be expelled quickly and quietly.  The PSU is cooled from drawing external air through a micro-filter that will help keep dust out of the bottom mounted PSU.  For more features, we'll take a look at the NZXT product page and post more information below for your convenience.
