EVGA Hadron Chassis
 
http://www.evga.com/articles/00777/

Yep evga now make cases, I wonder if this will make other 'card/board manufacturers build their own cases? I dread to think of the xfx one if they do...

Anyway, its a neat little design in my opinion :D, comes with its own custom 500w gold rated power supply and will be available in two versions, air and hydro (designed for custom loops). The main feature however is its size, 6.6inches wide,12 inches tall and 12 inches deep.

What do you guys think of it?

Looks like a mix between an acer aspire tower and a bit fenix prodigy with evgas style added. Looks alright but it looks like it has poor ventilation. Good to see a case with a decent built in psu though :D

well, nothing too special, but the hydro version looks interesting.

not sure if i like the connectors on the back, could make the insides either very tidy or really messed up.

I dread to think of all the finger prints on the front panel

I like it, the GPU looks a little to close to the bottom of the case. Could be a bad thing for air flow, it would also be sucking dust from the bottom if it's vented.

Need to see more pictures of the guts.

The built-in PSU is in the bottom of the case as well though:

Thats not to bad then, at least it's not sucking up dust. Still seems a bit restrictive on air flow.

Built in PSU? No thanks. Shame because it looks quite nice to me, sleek black, big window, there's a few things going for it.

Ergonomics like the PSU and GPU being close can't be good but I suppose in MITX form it is to be expected somewhat.

I'm with SeekaX, the hydro version looks much nicer.
