Here is my build phase 1 with a new GTX 1070 installed smile.gif

Hey guys just wanted to say some of you have some very nice builds. I need some help though. I'm building a hadron air and want to put an ACX 3.0 cooler in there. I want to cut a gap in the back panel so air can vent out through the holes better. My question is, what are those 3 indentions on the inside back panel for? Are they used to secure the GPU or as a rest for it? I want to cut them out but i'm not sure what theyre for. Thanks

Hi - I'm wondering if there are any AIO's that fit in the Hadron without modding.

Thank you.
post #2164 of 2261
With -NO- modding at all? Like, not even a single drilled mounting hole? Highly doubtful. You might be able to remove an exhaust fan and rig up some small 92mm AIO to the mesh top panel above the motherboard with, I dunno, twist ties? ...not something I would do.

Nope, I just put one in mine. Used a bit of cutting... haha. About to post a build log smile.gif waiting on that darn GPU

I'm about to take a drill to my Hadron, I do have one question: what size screws would I use if I wanted to re-mount at least parts of the HDD cage?

I'm going to chop the cage up and try to make it into an SFX power supply bracket through liberal application of drilling, bending, and creative cursing. Or I'll end up breaking it completely and just use the zip-tie mounting method, either way.

After some debating between this case and a Metis, I settled on this because of its steel material. Other than that, this is my new Hadron build, Hellhound.

Specs:

Z170i pro gaming by ASUS
i7 6700k
Kingston Hyper X Savage 8x2GB kit
GTX Titan X Hybrid

500GB m.2 samgsung SSD
1TB WD Black HDD
Some random Sony Optaric ODD for bluray and DVD

Noctua U9S cooler
NZXT Hue+ LEDs
Assorted sleeved cable extensions

Other than some quick mods such as replacing the PSU fan and drilling holes to mount the Hue.
Let me know if anyone wants more pics or benchmarks/temps.

The rivet holes on the front are 5mm. The sides, 3mm. Good luck.

Thanks mate, I'll be sure to document my adventure and post a pic-dump with the results. thumb.gif

EDIT: So I got this done sooner than I'd expected, I'll just edit this post with pictures. In spoiler tag because I'm a gent like that.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Starting point. It's been unchanged for 2 years since I built it, that GTX780 could sometimes get the stock PSU's fan up into warp drive. Yeah, it's dusty, don't judge me ._.


Naked Hadron with nearly everything stripped out/off.


Cage out! Jeez this thing takes up a ton of space.


As you can see, an SFX power supply fits in the existing cage like a glove... well, if you didn't need to connect any wires that is.


Vise clamps are your friend. This little one is $20 at Home Depot, excellent investment.


Bottom chopped off, I'm left with the top of the cage which is what the PSU will be mounting to. Cut out a cross-bar so it can breathe better.


Test fitting. Looking good. I have a bunch of random screws from past builds and electronics tinkering, so I was able to find 5 or 6 screws to hold the cage in place. Dunno what size, to be honest, and they're 4 different colors/styles to boot.


I had to trim out a bit for the cable. I have a 90 degree adapter incoming that was supposed to be here today (thanks USPS!) to clean it up AND hopefully let me put the 120mm fan back in this spot. I embraced my inner creative-lazy-cheapskate and repurposed scrap to help me mount it. I figure i can get away with it since gravity is gonna want to pull it down, not push it up. I'll come up with a more elegant solution... erm... well, I'll be honest, probably never.


Assembled! And plugged into a snazzy new GTX1070 to boot!


With (dirty. I'll get to it, calm down!) window in place.


'Murica!

Like many other I've been trying to find ways to limit the noise of this great EVGA Hadron Air chassi.
I have now solved the problem and here's what I did...

I removed the original psu and replaced with a Corsair SF450, placed in the hdd metal cage.
The middle metal parts of the hdd cage was cut to make room for cables.
The external power cable need to be angled, to not hit the graphics card.
The system is now completely silent on normal browsing, watch movies, listening to music etc.
When gaming, the system starts the fans as they should, and gets silent as soon as I stop.

Here's my updated system.
  • EVGA Hadron Air
  • Corsair SF450 450W (PSU)
  • MSI Z170I GAMING PRO AC
  • Intel Core i5 6600K 3.5 GHz 6MB
  • Corsair 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4 2133MHz CL13 Vengeance LPX
  • Samsung 950-series PRO 512GB M.2 NVMe
  • EVGA GeForce GTX 970 4GB ACX 2.0+ SSC
  • Noctua NH-U9B SE2 (CPU cooler)
  • Noctua NF-B9 redux-1600 92mm PWM (CPU fan)
  • 2 x be quiet! ShadowWings 120mm PWM (top system fans, 1 blow in, 1 out)
