Maybe my situation was a bit different since I was using radiators, but I had my top fans as intakes, thinking it would help keep the PSU cooler, but it did the opposite and basically kept the heat inside

What about use a dremel and open a 83mm (or something about this size) hole in the back and use a 92mm fan?
ALSO, we can use 2x 60mm fans (i'm always thing noctua fans because their low noise) one on the right side panel just under the Hdd cage and another on the bottom just behind the psu (i already measured and there is enought space for both).
The cables can be managed to pass inside the hdd cage (need some little cage mod) and coming out on top (doesn't touch the top 120mm fan).
Another 92mm fan can be put inside the hdd cage to blow the air toward the cpu tower cooler, that will NEED to be place to blow the air to the back, not to the top (replace one of the 92x25mm fan for a 92x14mm to avoid ram contact).
So, with this configuration, we have:
2x120mm top fans exaust;
1x92mm back exaust fan;
2x92mm tower cooler fans directed to help back exaust;
1x92mm fan inside cage directed to help cpu tower cooler fans to back exaust;
2x60mm fans to intake air from the bottom and from the under right side panel.
Problably the case fans will be set to lna or ulna to avoid noise.

What do you guys think? Crazy? Considering the reference cooler fan and the psu fan, that will be a total of 10 fans inside hadron air!!
Another thing: paint all the fans,probably black color.
I' going to do this in the next few days, no rush.
I think i'll became a Noctua's partner with all this fans...

Admittedly, I haven't really compared temps as of yet.

I had it like that because the CPU temps were hitting TJMax on the stock cooler. I got my NH-L12 installed now though so I could probably flip them and see if it makes any difference on the PSU fan noise side.

1 out of 8 (tested and working 100% without any noise):

I'll finish to spray paint the center...

Also, i just realized that a 80x25mm fan can perfectly fit in the right side panel under the hdd cage. So i will use it instead of another 60x25mm fan.
ALSO, will make a 73mm hole in that place and add just a few more holes to the right side panel (my main target is a better case airflow solution without mod the Hadron aestethics).

If anyone is online, could you do me a favor? I'm at work, and would really like to know a dimension... I keep forgetting to grab it when I'm home.

I need the measurement from the top of someone's GPU (fan side of a regular dual-slot), to the bottom inside of the case where the PSU would sit. I've been contemplating trying to turn my Hadron into a mATX case, and need to get some idea as to the clearances that I have to play with before breaking down and buying a couple new boards for test fits. To do this though, I would need to remove the current PSU, and mount a different one in the front of the case, assuming I went with a slim mATX board.

I plan on going back to my top-mounted 240 rad, with slim Scythe fans, and a full water loop which would cool the CPU and two GPU's. I figure with water blocks on both GPU's, it should save me a little bit of space, but I don't want things to be too cramped. I'm also guessing that I will just need to mount a SFF PSU in the very front of the case, where the HDD cage usually is.

I've seen a couple people try to mount PSU's right above the motherboard, but with the fact that I want to use an Apogee Drive 2 block/ pump, I doubt that I would have the clearances necessary for it.

Not sure exactly why you'd water cool that, but temps with a CPU and 2 GPUs on a slim 240 with slim fans won't exactly be fantastic. I know, I went back to running my 690 on air for that very reason. An mATX board would be doable, looking at the back of the case, but also nowhere near ideal in terms of airflow and the like. I'd also be a bit worried about providing power to 2 GPUs on an SFX PSU, which is what I assume you'd use, as biggest one that I know of is the Silverstone SX600-G, and that only has a single 8-pin.
