Thanks for all the feedback guys! I have allready modded to put a thick AIO radiator in the front of the case. As such if i wanted an SFX PSU the only place it could go is up front under the rad. This would limit me to standard smaller SFX PSU's and a card of no longer than 9 inches.

If the Hadron PSU fan has some level of temperature based voltage control than i should be able to replace it with something that will at least match the CFM of the current fan at lower RPM's or exceed it at lower DB's. Hopefully keeping the noise down. I shall have a look at the power supply tonight and see if i can find any fan regulation circuitry.


If it does indeed just run max at all times then its going to be pretty hard to drop the dB level significantly and i might have to start looking at shorter cards....

Is the AIO for your CPU? If so, you could probably cut out an opening on the back of the case above the GPU and put the PSU there directly over the motherboard. I mean, you'd have to remove the PSU when you needed to mess with the mobo, but such is ITX life.

That would be an ideal solution if i wasn't also trying to make it pretty ^^ hoping to replace the current windowed side panel with a full window so it would somewhat ruin the aesthetic. I'm far to vain for that! tonguesmiley.gif

At the moment i think i might try the PSU upgrades so as not to sacrifice on card too much. We shall see what poking around the PSU turns up. I may try and move the power connector internally so i can stick a second fan where the current plug in is, this would allow me to use a couple of quieter noctua fans to cool the PSU whilst hopefully shifting enough air to not have them at max RPM all the time (seems to be the main flaw of the noctua upgrade aside from the dangerously low airflow with just the one....)

Might wait and see what turns up by way of shorter cards, since the 1060 is set to be a shorter card than the 1070 or 1080 some of the non-founders editions might come in under 9 inches and alleviate my issues, although this will be somewhat dependant on benchmarks.

I finally got myself together and posted my build. You can find the post here: [Build] - Hadron Air - Night Shift

Here are some of the MVPics. Enjoy!

Very nice build, gonna be borrowing the 20% tint idea. Forgot to consider that for my build.

So I found a used Hadron on ebay last week for $25, couldn't pass it up. Case is in bad shape but I think after some sanding and coats of spray paint i'll have it back to normal. The main reason I purchased it was for the second PSU. My first time sleeving my original PSU I personally feel I made some sloppy mistakes around the wire housing and cutting lengths too short for comfort. Everything did work fine I can't just let the mistakes carrying on in my machine.

I replaced the 40mm fan with a Sunon again but this time I gutted a Noctua low noise adapter and added the resistor in between the connections, It's amazing how much a difference that made, it is truly a silent build now. My advice for those that go the sleeving route. Only the 24pin connection is the one that needs shortening. The 8pin pcie length is perfect after removing that second double wire 8pin. The 8pin eps is also perfect, this was where I made the mistake on the first psu, cable length cut just too short for my taste. And instead of doing a double breakout on the 8pin pcie for the second like is stock. This time I converted the two molex rails into one 6pin pcie. Better cable management because less unused cables plus a cleaner look because no more heat shrink.

Picked up one of these and these so I can use the side IO.

Now it's just a waiting game for EVGA to release a 1070 SC blower style for that last final upgrade, and hopefully that's within my 3 month step up time.

A PSU fan swap/ sleeving session is definitely in my future. Good call finding a spare PSU, i'll be on the lookout myself.

I'll If you try out the window tint, I'd recommend tinting the inside of the window and apply it very wet, or even completely under water. As long as you get the air bubbles out you can sit the tinted window outside on sunny afternoon to off-gas any water bubbles in the film. Its scary looking at first, but as long as its not air, they will disappear. Good luck!

Some organizations to come as I wanted.

Hey guys!

Glad I found a Hadron Air group.

Anyone know where you can find drive caddy replacements for the Hadron Air? EVGA no longer has replacement parts frown.gif

Here are some photos of my puppy wink.gif (Still a WIP)

Added some new items to my build. A WD black for some extra storage, some mainframe custom cable combs to clean up the wiring angles and a 22mm white ring vandal switch to replace stock switch. Had to have the faceplate recut but so worth it since new switch is awesome. Still need that non FE 1070 released from evga assuming such a thing will ever exist.

Anyone have any tips for an overheating Hadron Air build?

Sig rig. Just installed a TX3. Temps still hitting 70C playing games. Stock settings. I have to leave the side panel off so the thing doesn't overheat. 70C load, 80F.
