I hope you like it. Will post some updates with Benchmark results.

Looks awesome! Can you take some more shots of the PSU and Res/Pump combo? I'm interested in seeing how much space there is to work with after putting in the SFX PSU as I've been thinking about going that route myself for my Hadron. Any plans to go with a hardline tubing in the future? Also noticed you're using the EK thermosphere...what are you doing for cooling the RAM/MOSFETs besides the two fans?

Thats cool you were able to use a fan independent of the PSU. What fan did you use and how is the noise/airflow? I swapped my fan out a while ago and it works great just splicing the existing wires to allow the PSU to power it. But seeing as this method works as well, Ill open it up and try that out too!

im using Gigabyte app center to control the fan speed. you can hear the whining of the fan just barely but not the air noise but when you start gaming or programming it will speed up and u can hear it abit more. the temp feels abit lease then the stock fan on low speed in full load

if you want you can go abit lower on the settings to turn off the fan completely but the psu will warm up

Wow, a 13,00RPM fan? I mean I know the latter is noisy and unable to control but that 13K RPM fan will probably sound worse than the fan it replaces. I used a Noiseblocker Blacknoise 40mm fan that is BARELY AUDIBLE at full tilt. Its not PWM, but your modo should be able to control the rpms anyway. I'd recommend getting the 3800RPM model.

Do you mind turning on your PC and looking at that Noiseblocker fan and seeing if it is actually spinning for me please. Cuz 2 for 2 never spun unless under a load for a while (PSU temps rose).

What's the go to CPU cooler for these running an impact motherboard and tall RAM? I can modify the RAM heatsinks if necessary and the HDD cage is removed if that matters.

Running an i5 4670k and hoping to hit 4.2ghz.

Thought I'd post some updated pics of my Hadron Air with a custom hardline water loop for CPU/GPU. Just did a fluid flush yesterday as the red EK coolant I was using got a bit foamy. Things are looking slick now biggrin.gif

Temps have been consistent throughout the months since I've had it: idle CPU 30/ GPU 33. Load CPU 55/GPU 50. Since my last photos I've installed a custom RGB LED strip on the inside...

Attractive build thumb.gif What is the noise level like? I've read water cooled systems can be a bit on the loud side compared to their fan-cooled counterparts.

Thanks! Actually this build is very quiet. Nothing measured quantitatively but the loudest thing in my build is the PSU fan which isn't that bad imo. It rarely spins up to the point of being audible as my GPU is the 970 which is very power efficient. Otherwise, all the other water cooling components are very quite.
