A few months ago was presented a new Italian brand called Hydra, which featured interesting chassis intended for extreme configurations or at least some very showy. Today we have been able to know that these new chassis will be put on sale in the United Kingdom from the Overclockers UK store which is currently collecting a stock of this new brand, offering both the very interesting Hydra Desk and the open chassis NR-01.
On one side we have the Hydra Desk, a desk that allows installing our equipment inside with great options for liquid cooling and installation of radiators, with the possibility of installing a radiator of 480mm and up to five of 360mm. Storage space is also very important, with options to include up to 16 2.5 “drives, 12 drives for 2.5” or 3.5 “drives and up to six 5.25” external drives.
The desk has a weight of 43 kg and is made of aluminum with a tempered glass base.
