Features

  • Pre-manufactured assemblies minimize the number of tiny parts you need to put together; Measures 290 x 570 x 500 mm when fully assembled.
  • Fits 10 dual-slot aftermarket cards with bigger PCB/cooler up to 330 mm length; Switchable to 8 triple-slot patterns for increased space and better airflow.
  • Uses 3x power supplies for improved power distribution; Not compatible with 19 inch rack enclosure due to the extra width.
  • Extra tall 6.5U chassis elevates your cards above the MB and PSU, and keeps the cables out of critical airflow paths.
  • Supports ATX/Micro-ATX motherboard, 3 PSU, 8 or 10 GPU, and 8 x 120 mm fans.

Description

The Hydra 8 is a custom made 6.5U case for 10 GPU accelerated 3D modeling/rendering nodes and intense AI deep learning servers. You are able to iterate more often before finishing a project (i.e Octane, Redshift, V-RAY RT or Cinema 4Ds) and respond in real time to changes (i.e. risk modeling, financial learning or scientific computing) using massive number of GPUs. The rear railings where the GPUs mount can be switched from 10 dual slot to 8 triple slot for wider spacing when only using 8 GPUs. This computer case supports ten full-length graphics cards, one ATX/Micro-ATX motherboard, and three power supplies for better power distribution. Extra tall 6.5U height elevates the graphics cards above the motherboard and power supplies, helping you keep the cables organized underneath and out of critical airflow paths. Thick industrial quality steel offers outstanding strength and durability to hold all your cards without flexing for safer storage and transport. Extended distance from GPU to MB requires the use of PCI-E risers. This is the best enclosure type for HPC workstations/servers that generate a ton of heat. Closed cabinet provides critical active airflow management (front-to-back) to prevent hot exhaust air from circulating back into the equipment air intake. The Hydra VIII has been designed with a front-to-back airflow. By strategically placing the cards above the motherboard and power supplies, your components all receive a proper amount of cold air, and are able to operate at their full potential. Compared to Hydra II, the Hydra VIII is larger and not compatible with industry standard 19 inch wide racks. You can install up to 4 x 120 mm high speed server fans at the front of the chassis to push in cold air. Closed system allows for full airflow through your cards and power supplies for improved cooling. You can install up to 4 x 120 mm high speed server fans at the back of the chassis to pull out hot air. Aftermarket cards tend to be taller around 140 to 150 mm, and some are longer around 300 to 330 mm. Most do not have recessed power connectors and require extra room for those cables. The Hydra 8 has taken into account all these details to ensure everything fits. You can fit up to 10 dual slot cards or 8 triple slot cards. Switch from 10 dual slot to 8 triple slot mounting patterns for extreme expandability and airflow. Easily install cards of different height, length and width. Switch from ten 2-slot to eight 3-slot mounting patterns. Organize bundles of cables by zip tying them to the zip tie points at the bottom GPU bracket. Use 3 power supplies for improved power distribution and efficiency when two are not enough for your cards. Fully removable & modular panels allow easy access to fans, drives, GPUs, and cable routing.

abunda_amazon_reviews Great chassis for your mining rig and as a bonus it can easily double as a test-bench setup! Pros: - Comes basically fully assembled which isn't often the case with frames similar to the Hydra 1 (all you need to do is add the handles and fan grilles.) - Extremely sturdy and durable; the joints on the chassis are strongly attached leaving no shaking or random rattling parts. - The handles have padding! - For an 8 GPU frame this case is actually very compact. - Tons of grommets for clean cable routing and management options. - All necessary mounting hardware included. - Fan grilles and zip-ties to keep your cables safe. - Once you have this thing assembled, nothing is going to come apart. - Clean black powder-coated finish - Made from industrial quality steel (the handles are the only aluminum parts on this should you choose to use them) - Stackable for those who want to expand their farms. - Probably one of the most compact options for a miner with reference/blower fan cards. - Great packaging. - Nanoxia paid far more deal of attention to detail than any other manufacturer I've purchased or have seen a GPU frame from. Cons: - Not really a con as I do believe "You get what you pay for" in terms of quality, but the price may seem a bit steep for some.;;Reviewed in the United States on May 14, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Nanoxia really paid attention to detail on this one!;;Public Reviewer Number One;;;I have tried many gpu mining cases looking for nirvana, and have left reviews of several. Usually, I compare them to my former favorite open air frames, but they have always come up short. I really thought Hydra 2 would be the same, but I really like this case so much better. If you are not familiar with closed systems, they can stay much cooler than open air frames. Like others have said, just make sure you are using powerful fans and to close any holes that might leak air. I am using 6 ASUS RX VEGA 64 with 6 hydra high speed fans in this case, and the entire system run nicely in the range of 68C to 72C. So do yourself a favor, none of those crappy quiet fans, please.

Good case, see other reviews and photos. Fits 8 GPUs as listed. 6 GPU configuration is achieved by reversing the internal crossbars - there are two sets of holes drilled, one set for 8 gpus on one side and one for 6 gpus on the other side. Easy to do. Note that if you want to use the pre-drilled holes for a PSU you will need a standard server PSU, as desktop PSUs such as the HX1200 - which I have - have their mounting holes in a position that doesn't line up with the holes in the case (I zip tied my PSU to the back of the case by threading very small zipties through the vent grille in the PSU; zipties included with the case). You'll also need 90 degree PCIe connectors to get the cables out of the way enough to get the lid on, unless you use flexible PCIe extension cables or something similar. The thick ones that come with a standard PSU aren't flexible enough to get out of the way for the lid. Fans aren't included so you'll need at least 3 of those - and if you're installing rear fans make sure to do that before you put the GPUs in as there's not enough wiggle room to do it afterwards. Finally, no rack ears are included, if you actually plan to rack mount it you'll need rack mounting hardware. With 6 GPUs it's heavy, not too heavy to pick up with some light effort but definitely too heavy to front mount - you'll need rails.

I was specifically looking for a vertical design with bottom to top airflow. The side mounted fans don't really do anything because of how open the case is. Just get bottom fans that can push a lot of air and you'll be good. Initial cabling is a bit more complicated than a traditional open air frame.

This case just works (great)!
Great case! The design is discrete. Installation was easy, leaving plenty of room for cables. The cooling is effective and the closed system works well, just choose the right fans (High static pressure for the intake and a higher cfm for the exhaust). I will definitely be purchasing another!

4.0 out of 5 stars

Compact and Portable
Love the case, however, it was a bit of a pain to assemble. The directions included, indicated that some of the parts should have already been assembled, where as mine were not. I was also left with a huge pile of "extra" screws and washers etc. The tedious process required several hours of work and a bit of trial and error. The size of the box it shipped in, was actually about the size of the assembled case. (I would have paid an extra $10 to have this thing arrived fully assembled.) Once assembled, the case works great. The GPU's pack in to a much tighter space than traditional rigs, with better cooling, and fewer fans. I was specifically looking for a vertical design with bottom to top airflow. The side mounted fans don't really do anything because of how open the case is. Just get bottom fans that can push a lot of air and you'll be good. Initial cabling is a bit more complicated than a traditional open air frame. The power supplies are a bit awkward to reach, and once you get the GPU's installed you lose that little access. I do love that it can be picked up and moved so easily, and the overall footprint is just a little larger than a standard desktop.
