I'm trying to build a compact PC with a FX 8350 processor, Hadron Air would be perfect for me, but i did not find any mini-ATX motherboard with am3+ socket.
I think so, mine is 244x244mm as well. I'd like to hear about psu behavior with that processor, as it can be quite power hungry when oc'ed

This I've got it see! The biggest issue aside from cooling will be the pci-e slot location. If it's not at the highest point it can possible be, then no GPU will fit as it'll hit the PSU.

The 78lmt for example, wouldn't work.

I'd recommend the Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 instead of the Asus board, having used both in the past. The PCI slot configuration is the same, and the Gigabyte board has a VRM that I trust more. As iRUSH said, if be a tad worried about GPU clearance, but you'll never know unless you try, right? As for mini itx boards with AM3+ support, I've only ever seen one that Asus made for AM3 Phenom chips, and I've never seen one used for under $230. If love to get my hands on one and put an FX-6300 in it, though.

I built a machine for a buddy with one of those ASUS boards and I was so disgusted by the lack of features of this "newer" chipset that I went on ebay and found a MSI 890GXM-G65 (and I typically am not a fan of MSI) as it was more fully featured and reviewers consistently praised the latest BIOS revs supporting AM3+

That's what I currently run my FX-8350 on for the past couple years without issue. Not in the Hadron, but in another machine (Silverstone SG10).

Okay guys I'm in A bit if a situation here. I took the plunge and decided to swap out the hadrons psu fan with an aftermarket one. I cut the fan cable inside the psu and wrapped the wires with electrical tape.

I then transplanted a new fan but instead I connected it to my fan header on my motherboard.

Now after I assembled everything again. I tried to start the computer, but it won't come on. The motherboard lights up, as do the LEDs on my graphics card, but when I hit the power button, the system does not turn on. I believe the psu won't turn on w/o a fan signal, but Any ideas as to what's going on?

Pretty sure you answered your own question. I know I sure as hell wouldn't design a psu that started if there was no way to cool it. It's kinda like how some motherboards freak out if there's no CPU fan detected.

To confirm, just connect everything back to normal and power it on.

Okay. So here's an update. After cutting the wires and wrapping them with electric tape, I tried to turn it on but no go. I then took it apart and spliced the two wires together. My dad had a theory that the splice would form a connection and trigger the switch to power on the psu. Again that did not work. So....
I'm gonna have to splice the cables for the new fan and the existing psu fan cables. I just hope I didn't totally mess up my psu.

Very much possible. There is a fan controller inside that PSU somewhere and they may have made it so a fan is required, for safety/heat reasons.
