[Official] EVGA Hadron Air Owners Club - Page 154

post #1531 of 2255
Hi guys,

Just thought I'd share the build I did - specifically to let people know about the temps in the case.

I'm using a xeon 1231 and a ASUS GTX970 the ITX sized card.

After play BF4 for a couple of hours or SC2 the temps on the GPU never go beyond 68c and the CPU with stock cooler stay below 60c.

Everything is stock - love the case, nice and small. If I were to do a mod it would be to put an SFX PSU inside as the PSU in the box probably makes the most noise out of all of the components - although, its only when there's no other noise in the room do I even hear that.

Loved seeing everyones builds, some serriously kick ass ones out there. However, I love the fact that this is stock, non-overclocked and an absolute beast of a little box with really acceptable temps.

Here's a pic of the build without the case window on - when it's on you don't see the SSD or the PSU cables.

Update on my build: while removing the front bezel, I accidentally pulled too hard and the bezel went flying... and landed on an open notebook nearby. The sticky stuff is now completely covered in notebook paper and won't come off. What should I do? I've tried blowdrying it forever, and it won't come off. Are there any simple things I can do to strip the entire back of the bezel?

Hi sconzen! I have a quick question about your build:

How did you mount the H60 bracket with the Hadron's cutout? The little holes for my H80 won't seem to fit through the four holes in the corners from behind the back plate. Do I attach the mounting bracket before the motherboard gets mounted?

For a little while, I had custom water in my Hadron. The backplate for my particular block just got between my motherboard and EVGA's mounting thing with enough clearance that when I had to undo my block one day to mess with my loop, it actually feel behind the motherboard.

Basically, the H80 backplate should just fit and you should install it before dropping the board into the Hadron. Hope that helps!

Thanks for the tip! After about 3 weeks of planning, and about 2 hours of actual installation, my build is finally up! smile.gif

The GPU isn't in yet, but I plan to really clean up the mess of cables after it does! Really happy the H80i fits, I'm getting a stable 4.0 GHz overclock, and 44 C under 100% load while folding. I suspect these temps will be much higher though, with a GPU installed. Thank you everyone for your support! smile.gif

I built a PC off of the Hadron Air and a i7-4790k and AsRock Z97E-ITX board. Intend to overclock it but haven't done so yet- completely stock. Been lurking on here for quite a while now while I research what I want to do.

So my PC has worked fine for the last few months since I finished the build. Until today... went to boot it up and absolutely nothing when I pushed the power button. So I quadruple checked that it was getting good power (have it going through a nice Tripp-Lite suppressor) and it definitely is. I held the power button down and it finally turns the power to the fans on but after a brief surge of full fan power they go back down in speed and all fans just slowly hum on low speed. Nothing to the monitors- just black and won't let me get to the BIOS screens, etc.

I've turned it off an on repeatedly and it does the same thing every time- initial brief surge of fans for about a second and then just very low fans.

Ideas what's going on and how to fix? I'm self employed and this is my daily work computer and I'm really freaking out now to get this computer running again.

Thanks so much guys!

As a follow-on...

Did the paperclip test (shorted ATX PS_ON# pin to ground and applied a fan as a load) and the PSU does the exact same thing- comes on for a second and then drops the fan speed to idle. Is this normal for this power supply or is my power supply bad?

BTW my system should only draw a maximum of 200w so this 500w power supply should be plenty.

*Really* appreciate any help folks can provide- I have a big project for a client due and need my computer badly.

Thanks again.

That's normal for this PSU and a lot of PWM fans when connected to 4pin mobo connections. It sounds like a airplane when it first starts up

Thanks for this. But normally when I boot up my PC the fans stay on much louder. This is just turning on high for a second and then idling all of the fans.

I disconnected everything to the PSU except the ATX connector and the power supply connector to the mobo. Still no luck. The mobo doesn't beep or have any lights or anything.

So I'm really needing to know if the PSU isn't giving out enough current (the voltages to all the connectors seem OK) or whether the mobo is toast.

Ideas?

Has anyone tried slapping a Noctua L9x65 in this case? Will it fit? Oddly enough its lighter than the L9i mentioned many times in this thread despite being bigger.

Also can the built in psu power a old 570gtx i have lying around? Thanks

Maybe I missed it but what PSU are you using?

Also are you running a dedicated GPU? Have you tried plugging your monitor into the onboard gpu.

Have you reset the cmos?
