All of my previous experience with EVGA as a company came from many successive video card purchases. For a long while there (through about five series of NVIDIA cards), EVGA cards were all I would touch due to their low failure rate, and excellent warranty service. As for the motherboards, power supplies, and other various devices EVGA has produced over the years, I tended to go another route for most of these purchases. While I knew the whole time that they did in fact offer solutions to most components for a PC, I never thought the day would come where I would be looking at a chassis from them.
That is exactly why we are here today: to bring forth a new compact tower-style chassis that offers sleek aesthetics, great ventilation, and also comes with a power supply pre-installed into the chassis to save room. This isn't some odd lame PSU either, it is a SFF PSU that offers 500W, and comes with an 80PLUS Gold rating. The other cool thing about this new chassis is that it comes in two variants: one made for air cooling, and another with a much larger top section, made to accommodate a radiator for water cooling.
What I do know of EVGA products in the past, is that the EVGA products I have used came well built, lasted forever without any issues, and always looked clean, sleek, and almost a step above other, plainer offerings. This is what has me excited to take a look at this new chassis.
Join us as we put the new Hadron Air from EVGA through its paces, complete a build, and then deliver our findings on what looks to be a very well thought out, classier looking addition to any room. To those looking for something along the lines of the design of the Prodigy, but with less space used, and a more refined finish: this is definitely worth the time it takes to check it out.
