Spec sheet says it weighs 6kg, so I'm assuming steel

 

I could have sworn that it was aluminum. But I may be wrong. Keep in mind if has a 500W PSU included in it.

 

Just saw the price. Ouch... Wouldn't load for me earlier. Scared to see the price of the Hydro version.

I could be wrong :P It's a 500w psu, but it's a flex-atx sized one. An equivalent wattage unit from Athena is 1kg. So ~5kg for the rest of the case - seems pretty hefty for alu, unless they're using 3mm thick :P

My brain keeps telling me this says HARDON too.  Guess that means I'm a perv.  Maybe not-so-subtle marketing ploy by EVGA?  A quick pants check says it's working.

 

The front bezel looks clean and I like the big window, but the asymmetrical aspect of that tilted front doesn't do it for me.  I wouldn't mind ripping one down to a more appealing look, I will say that :P

Done, and hopefully it all works out. I think we would all love to see it looked at with a modding eye.

I like the water cooling version of this case they are about to release. 

 

With the price of the air cooled version, I don't want to see the price of the water cooled version. Keep in mind that the water cooled version doesn't come with the stuff to water cool, just the ability to do it. They will be offering a water cooling setup in a box that will fit the case.

Yeah I mean I just thought it looked kinda cool. Id probably never buy it. I like to mod, I don't want anything prefabricated and ready for parts. I want a case where it looks like there is no way to fit in the parts and then cut the case into pieces and make some artwork =D

I understand what you mean. But what I don't understand is how they came up with pricing. It's crazy expensive IMO. But I know they will sell them. I wouldn't mind getting one to play with and build for a family member or something where they don't want anything crazy or flashy.

Wow yeah i just looked up the price. 180$ is way too much for a micro-atx box. Id say 80$ sounds good to me. My HAF 912 I just got for my current build was 40$ and is a pretty cool mid-size chassis that can accommodate water cooling without any mods. Im of course modding the hell out of it though but yeah lol. Interested to see the price point of the Hadron Water version.
