[Official] EVGA Hadron Air Owners Club - Page 125

post #1241 of 2255
I couldn't find a size comparison when I was buying cases so I figure I post this here just in case someone else was deciding between the two. The Air 240 is about 3 inches longer and wider. The air 240 has the included rubber feet on them (you self apply these so you can leave them off). Without the rubber feet they are about the same height.

Edit: Thanks for the excellent size comparison.

*somewhat off topic, you've been warned*
See, this is my problem. I want a good looking case that I can WC in effectively, but I don't want to compromise desk size my Hadron takes up in my dorm. (Trust me, it's a godsend. The damn thing spoiled me rotten.) Anyway, I'm not about to get a Hadron Hydro, cause they're just too unbalanced for my tastes (let's face it, it reminds of that movie egghead, too. And I can't stand the likes of the Prodigy and Air 240 because of their size. (Having owned both)

The only things that look interesting atm are the Phanteks Evolv Mini and an Ncase M1.

As it stands now, the only other mITX I really like, mainly for its simplicity is the Cubitek Mini Cube. This would have been my second choice after the Hadron Air, mainly due to its simple outward appearance, cable management behind the mobo tray and, can support a single 120mm rad without any modifications and...well... it's empty inside. lol

Anyone know how hard it is to open the PSU? I've read that some people have destroyed their hardron PSU opening it. Is it pretty straight forward? I want to take a try at sleeving it

It's very easy. I don't remember being gentle with anything on the Hadron except the components within the PSU, cuz some are deadly. The top shroud piece is way thinner than it looks, but it would only bend, not break. And you won't bend it unless you try to bend it.

So my Hadron PSU died on me last night... anyone know how long the RMA process takes? I can't afford to be out of action for too long, this is my "do everything" box... so if the RMA process is a month or so I might switch to a different case.

I was worried not being able to use standard power supplies would bite me. sadsmiley.gif

Not sure if it'll make a difference, but you could probably lose 3-4 mm my taking that top metal cover off the heatsink and mounting the fan flush with the top of the heat pipes. My understanding is a 140mm cooler is the biggest anyone's tried to put in, but even those had ~4-5mm left of clearance.

EDIT: I lied, the biggest cooler fitted is a CM Hyper N520 (141mm), and it had almost no clearance at all. As for whether the Cryorig would fit or now, I'm now very curious and might end up getting one myself to test.

EVGA's RMA process isn't too bad, maybe a week or two, depending on shipping. You might even be able to get a pre-shipped RMA unit, if you ask nicely.
