In this case the best cooler for GPU it's the blower stile one but i don't think you will have any throttle issues.

Like the above post the best type of gpu is one with the blower type like the reference cards which will blow air out the rear of the case instead of into. However, I run a acx2.0 gtx980 and I have no issues with idle temps at low 30s for both gpu and CPU. StarCraft II will get me to around 71 Celsius at max settings. It also helps that the fans aren't on at low temps =D
You really shouldn't have too much of an issue with that setup unless you plan to overclock it like crazy.

Since he is buying an h97 mobo and a non-K CPU, I think we can safely assume OC is not one of the mayor concerns for him. However I would rather go with an nvidia card, maybe a GTX960, you'll get about the same performance of the 280X with much less power and that only means less heat into the case.

Agreed with the above post about H97 and a non K. also with the GPU a 960 will be a much better choice in terms of power draw and performance. Less power draw less heat.

I would like to hear the opinion of those who own the evga Hadron air for a long time and uses it with a powerful graphics card like a GTX 780.

My concern is the PSU i was able to make it more silent than when was out of the box but the PSU have only 3 years warranty means is an entry level PSU.

I'm thinking of doing as I have seen in the photo of the thread of someone who has connected an external power supply by passing the cable from the hole for the 1U PSU.

As the person with (I think, unless someone is running AMD hardware) the most power-hungry GPU in the thread (GTX 690), I can tell you that the PSU can get very loud, and can spit out a lot of heat. That being said, removing the PSU and adding a full-size one externally ruins one of the things I like most about this case, which is it's portability.

As for the PSU quality, I wouldn't doubt it at all, being an 80+ Gold custom unit. I think the warranty was just EVGA being cautious about a brand new product segment that might not have worked out too well.

I have a 780+HDD+SSD+16go RAM+OC 4770k+LED+Watercooling: all that on stock PSU, no problem. Mine does not make much noise.

Thanks for the reply guys.

I believe well that makes alot of noise the PSU in your Hadron with a GTX 690. thumb.gif

I did not know it was for a precautionary reason they have given 3 years of warranty.

But if you see the most famous producers of PSU also give them 3 years warranty but only to the entry level power supplies more economical and lower watts.


I have a Corsair AX760 and comes with 7 years of warranty.

Can I ask you how long you are using that setup ?

Is your 780 with reference blower style fan ?



If we all upgrade to Maxwell GPU's that are so power efficent i think we never hear the Hadron PSU gets loud.

Im planning to get the 980 Ti ( rumored to be released end of this summer )

I've been using it for 9months now. I do play a lot (FarCry4 etc ...).
I'm fully watercooled: GPU + CPU

Hey guys. I'm yet to build my new PC (only a week to go biggrin.gif) but to be honest I'm also worried about the day the 1U PSU dies... replacing it could/would be a nightmare...

Just as a precaution I looked around and found this:

http://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=527

According to the specifications section, it measures 125 mm (W) × 63.5 mm (H) × 130 mm (D), so in theory if combined with either a single slot GPU or a short GPU (like the Asus GTX 970 DirectCU mini I'm planning to use) it could fit... let me explain further:

Case A) If you have a 1 slot GPU card, you could replace the 1U PSU is 40 mm "thick" with the Silverstone PSU (63.5 mm "thick") positioned at the back of the case directly below the 1 slot GPU card. Right now there is a gap of about 10-20 mm between a dual slot GPU and the 1U PSU in the Hadron + the 20 mm from the slot reduction (from dual to single).

Case B) If you have a short GPU card designed for mITX (Asus and Gigabyte), they are normally about 170mm long, so it should be possible to fit the 130 mm PSU at the front of the Hadron, just below the drive bay, again I'm pretty sure it´s going to be a tight fit, but it could work.

Do this numbers seem right?? What do you guys think??
