Hmm, I won't have it be on a fan header, so I guess I'll just keep it there and not void the warranty.

I'm a Noctua fanboy myself. All case fans in my Hadron are Redux fans. I have both the NF-A4x10 and the Noiseblocker. This time the Noiseblocker wins. Not only quieter, but push more air at the same time.

Hey guys, decided to build a portable and powerful computer because reasons and here are my results.biggrin.gif

Case: EVGA Hadron Air
Mobo: ASRock Fatal1ty Z170 Gaming-ITX/ac
CPU: 6700k @ 5Ghz 1.408v (Silicon Lottery)
CPU Cooling: Corsair H100i V2 w/ 2 Gentle Typhoon AP-15
RAM: G.SKILL TridentZ 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) F4-3200C14D-16GTZ
GPU: EVGA Titan X @ 1440Mhz
GPU Cooling: EVGA Hybrid 980Ti w/ Gentle Typhoon AP-45 (Couldn't find the Titan X shroud version in stock, Blasphemy... I know)
PSU: CORSAIR SF600 600W SFX (Doubles as a rear stand) tonguesmiley.gif
Storage: SanDisk SD8SN8U-1T00-1122 X400 M.2 SSD 1TB
Disk drives: Plan to add a slot load blu-ray

Had to do alot of cutting and drilling to get all this stuff in there. The GT fans had to have corners cut to fit next to the ram and cpu power plug. The cuts where the psu is are ugly, but it's the back so I don't care, lol. thumb.gif

During full load and gaming it pulls a max of 450w, but hangs around 420.wink.gif Read off my ups.

CPU gets to 55C at full load.

P.S. - My hands really hurt now.

My plan B was to use a travel case for stage lighting. I was so pleased with the DJ bag I didn't try any of them out. They may be worth exploring as a considerably cheaper option.

Nice job! Is that a Corsair SFX powersupply in the bottom? How have you found it to perform? Better than stock and how is the noise? Been thinking about getting one myself to replace my stock 500W supply.

Yes it is, the SF600. Didn't really need it for more power because the system draws 450w. It performs great and I can't hear it at all, especially with gentle typhoons at 1800rpm. I needed the stock psu out of the way to place the hybrid radiator down there. The stock psu would have done fine as far as power goes. Have to cut the bottom to get it to fit under a gpu, mine hangs down out of the cage a bit and is doubling as a rear stand.biggrin.gif

My first reaction was "Wait, since when did an SFX fit in the bottom of a Hadron??"

Then I saw it poking out the bottom. laughingsmiley.gif

Well, I finally got around to building my Hadron. It's only been sitting in my closet for 2 years. Decided I needed a more portable pc for my htc vive, for parties and such. This fits the bill perfectly smile.gif





post #2149 of 2261
Hello,

I am wondering if the Hadron is still worth it. I really like the design and how small it is. The PSU is my only cause for concern. It sounds like I would want to swap the fan out for something quieter. The cabling is a whole different battle. At the very least I would remove the ghetto sleeving and take some black vinyl dye to the wiring. Sleeving would be preferred but I'm not sure if I would be up to all that.

Is the Hadron worth modding the PSU fan and cabling? On the other hand, I guess it gives me something to work on and make my own.

I've heard complaints about the PSU fan being loud, but I never heard mine. The stock fans on the other hand were loud and I replaced them immediately.
