    Finally, a manufacturer has the guts to rpovide a custom sized PSU ! This is the only way to really shrinks the size down and keeps a clever layout. Go EVGA, you have my support :thumb:

    PS: NEXT step is to get rid of this silly and fat 24pins ATX plug on motherboard. It's time to use 12V only connectors :).

    EDIT : My only concern about this : Why on earth is the ODD slot located on the right side ? What if my desk side, a wall or anything else is facing this :wallbash: ?

    Still one thing I can't find the answer for: What connectors are on the PSU?

    why do they feel the need to create a terrible "15 year old gamer" video/trailer for the case

    Made a quick update to the article: the Hadron Air is now live in EVGA's own shop, priced at €180.77 (around £153 excluding taxes.)

    Couldn't you use one of those half sized server PSUs?

    That's what this PSU is in fact. What I was talking about is that most ITX case use a full fat ATX PSU. Even if you throw a FLEX PSU inside of it, you'll still have all this space wasted since it has been tought for an ATX one.

    PSU should move to something maybe longer but thinner. Example this HP PSU (ok it is only 100W :D)

    While being thin, it has a large fan, which is better than the common 40mm fan used in FLEX PSU.

    You have no idea how many times I had to re-read what I'd written, just to make sure there were no typos. Add to that, I was so busy looking for the obvious that I almost sent it live with an instance of EVAG instead of EVGA...

    I'll buy one. TBH this is the sexiest, cleverest case I've seen in years.

    As mentioned in the other thread started by atc, love the design, though I'm tepted to say, wonder if there'll be a mATX version?

    Right, one of these is sitting on my desk, so I can (try) to answer burning questions.

    So far, I'm a little disappointed how vague EVGA are about the case. Even the manual doesn't tell you the maximum height permitted for CPU coolers, or other things like PSU connectors. However, it's a tiny tiny box that takes a GTX 780!

    Bit late to the party, just bought one, will see how it goes, hopefully the PSU will run the system I bought to go inside it.
