Not enough room and no need really. Are you worried about the PSU overheating?

I don't have a stock HSF on mine so I can't give a good answer, but either a normal 25mm height fan will barely fit, or it barely won't fit. You can see a pic on my profile

I just wanted to put one there in hopes of silencing the accursed 40mm fan.
Maybe a slim 15mm fan would fit.

Considering you'll have a GPU right on top of it, idk if it'll even help. I'm not sure how hot the PSU actually gets, its just the fan curve set for the PSU temperature basically goes like this : 10% fan speed to 50% to 100 % lol. I'm not going off any factual information, just from what I remember hearing when the computer boots, when it sits idle at desktop for a bit and then gaming.

But there will be 4 options:
Blower fan GPU with intake on PSU
Blower fan GPU with exhaust on PSU
Aftermarket GPU with exhaust on PSU
Aftermarket GPU with intake on PSU.

I think a aftermarket HSF won't be a good choice for either, since the PSU or GPU will get much hotter than it already will due to the ITX case.

I'll go in later with a variety of fans when I swap out my heatsink, but I doubt it's any bigger than the likes of a slim 92mm. I've got a regular 120 laying around, a regular 92, and a 15mm thick 120. I only expect the slim one to fit in that space. I don't see why you'd rather do that than swap the fan in the PSU, though. Then you could avoid either cutting a hole in the PSU casing or fighting your GPU for fresh air.

Technically, a 15mm fan will fit. I got one of my Prolimatech USV12s and tried to stuff it between my PSU and my 690. It fit, but only somewhat, because I had to bend the end of the GPU up and the fan was still pressing against the screws on the GPU. Personally, I wouldn't recommend even trying, but to each their own, I suppose.



Also, new heatsink, folks. Got myself a Cryorig H9i. I also finally ponies up and got a 4690k instead of continuing to glide on my G3258. Hooray for upgrading stuff!



Edit: apologies for the phone potatoes, it's all I have at the moment.

^^ Just 1 stick of RAM?
post #1889 of 2261
At the time of the picture the second ram stick failed. I don't know why, but Corsair is RMAing it. Just waiting for it to come back. Never had that issue.

Well I'd say it looks nice and amazing how much hardware that can be crammed into the Hadron.

You just can't realize how tiny it is till you see one.
