The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

EVGA Hadron Air mini-ITX Case Black with Side Window 500W 80PLUS GOLD PSU USB 3.0 Slot Optical is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely little case This case really is as small as you can go for a desktop build, until you've seen one in real life you don't realise just how small it is! There's the media PC style cases but they're all bigger in height & depth, despite being much thinner in width. Anyway, this case is nearly perfect, just be careful which GPU you get as whilst it takes full-sized GPUs they cannot be too long or too wide. The blower style 1060 I've put in only just fits! Check the exact sizes of any GPU you're thinking of before purchasing. I'd suggest reading a full review of this case (just Google it), but pretty much the only downside from my point of view is the ridiculous choice in colour of two of the front panel cables, the grey audio cable isn't so bad but the bright blue USB header cable was a truly awful choice on their part. They just both ruin the otherwise nice aesthetic. The included PSU truly is amazing, you'll never hear it over whatever GPU you get, in fact the case is pretty quiet overall given it's tiny size. Would definitely buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Performance I first bought my Hadron Air case in January 2014, it has been really well received by everyone who has seen it, they especially like the full side window, & the polished look about it. My Rig is fitted out with the INTEL i7--4770k, with16GB, 2x8GB Corsair Vengeance Pro 2400 memory modules, EVGA GTX 780i, on an ASUS MAXIMUS VII IMPACT Z-97 mini ITX Motherboard, with a Noctua NH-9i CPU low profile cooler, with SAMSUNG 512GB 850 pro SSD, & a Western Digital 1TB HDD Black sata3, with a Liteon DL-8atsh 8xDVD Player, The CPU cooler is very quite, but I may be fitting the new Corsair Hydro Series CPU Liquid Cooler model H5-SF, which is made especially for Mini ITX Boards, to replace it, so that I can return to the 4.2GHZ Overclocking that it had originally, as I had to reduce it down to the standard 3.5GHZ when the Noctua NH-9i was fitted, as it was low profile, but couldn't handle the Overclocking! I have been very, very pleased with it over the past 2 & a half years, & would certainly use it again in any future builds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good choice for a tiny but powerful PC Luckily PSU can cope with my new Core i5 6600K and EVGA 980Ti. PSU is not that loud, could be worse. Some people replace its fan with Noctua. HDD cage should be removable to ease Mini ITX board installation process. I really wish it was slimmer, just with 2.5 HDD bays for SSDs, coz space allows. Anyway it fits my backpack and the system inside is far more powerful than any gaming laptop)) Thanks EVGA!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good case, poor PSU Case itself is best in its class, very small and looking nice. Problem is the PSU itself or to be more precise its fan. It is very small and very loud. Loud on idle, on full load it sounds like a hair dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic little case that does the job and does it smart! I am now a converted Mini ITX man since this case came out. Its a great little case that can accommodate my GTX780 with ease. The power supply is tiny and extremely quiet, along with the fans in the roof. I recommend this case to someone that wants a powerful, smart and small PC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous This is a beautifully designed and executed case. I shall be building with it again as I already have a queue of builds just from the looks people are getting of it. It is a little heavier than I expected but I'm glad of that as it is very sturdy. If you use a motherboard with an mSATA connector and an mSATA SSD for a boot drive there is room for a huge 2-drive RAID 1 for data. The built in PSU is very high quality and is whisper quiet even under high load although during boot the fan inside the PSU spins at max revs for 2 seconds before winding right down to barely audible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very slick case...but a pain to build I'll say upfront this case can be loud. BUT not because of the server-sized PSU fan that sits at the back of the case. Noise seems more to be from the limited clearance available to the GPU. So, GPU temperatures aren't great either. Pros: very good looking case - probably the best solution to a mini-ITX performance build if you're willing to put the effort in. Silverstone's SG08 is probably better in terms of cooling and case layout but it does look like half a microwave. Cons: Like I mentioned the noise can be quite irritating - but it's not a problem if you have headphones like me. Not much room for cable management. HD Audio cable isn't 100% shielded but I've seen worse. Would have been nice if HDD cage was modular. p.s. if at all possible install the CPU cooler (especially if it's a tower cooler) AFTER you've installed the mobo and plugged in the cables and everything else, otherwise it becomes a massive PAIN to manoeuvre around the case and plug in the cables. And no, you can't ever fit a liquid cooler in this one. Wait for the hadron hydro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product but be weary of fans pros: Great build quality Small but not too small lovely window Minimalistic design cons: Fans are sharp even can cut even if not spinning some internal parts of case not painted slim slot loading drive needed usb 3 header might not reach depending on placement on motherboard and if you have tall Cpu cooler

Questions & Answers

Which slim slot loading drive do you recommend for this case and the necessary connector to go with it.

I am looking to buy this case from you guys but have been searching for a compatible drive for it. I just want one that is compatible and if possible maybe doesn't require the additional connector, if it has to have a connector which one should I go for?
Asked by: Madevu
The LITEON DL-8ATSH SLIM DVD PLAYER, is the best & most suitable for this case, there are NO controls to fumble with, you just use it from your software programme, with AUTO ejection after playing set, so it ejects after play ends.

CPU Cooler Compatibility

I would like to buy this and put my Asus Impact VI (Z87) in there. Not sure what CPU coolers will work though. My Corsair RAM is not low profile. Bigger cooler the better. Not too keen on the Noctuas though. Any advice appreciated!
Asked by: DanLeil
I use the Asus Maximus Impact VII Z97 with a Noctua NH-9I now, which is very quite, but I have also used the Arctic Cooler i13 CPU Cooler previously, & now I am looking at the new model Corsair Hydro Series liquid CPU Cooler H5 SF which is now recommended for Mini ITX Boards such as ours, to be used in small Form Factor cases. I have found there are very few good Air coolers around to fit Mini ITX Boards, that is why I keep changing them, I have had Overclocking up to 4.4GHZ, but also find that 3.5GHZ is fine for low profile CPU Coolers too.
