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.

I wouldn't do it, I owned a watercooled Hadron Air and it's not worth it at all.

I ran an i7-4770k and a GTX 670 and the temps isn't even ideal for a watercooled system. You would be disappointed with 2 GPU's.

I posted a while ago the drawbacks of using Hadron Air with a custom water loop.

There's a couple of factors.

1. Getting rid of air pockets inside the loop is a PITA, my build had a reservoir but that doesn't mean that bleeding the loop is easy.
2. The fans required (slim scythes) life span is very low. One of my scythe fan gave up within 5 months of daily use. (These fans aren't quiet.)
3. I achieved better temps with a Noctua C14 on CPU and stock cooler on my GPU.

Basically, positioning of every component is very weird. This is all based on my experience owning a Hadron Air w/ custom loop.

Fitting everything in a small space is honestly nice, but it's very inefficient temp and performance wise.

What does this 'slim matx motherboard' look like? Yet to see one.

I'm not sure. My best guess would be something along the lines of this instead of a more standard width like this. Although you'd be hard-pressed to find a board that width with a Z-series chipset, if that's what you want. Most will be B or H family chips.

Yeah, the slim motherboards that I was talking about are more rectangular than square. They usually only have 2 DIMM slots for RAM though, as opposed to the typical 4. I already have my CPU, an AMD A10-5800k, which is an FM2+ chipset. I have already found numerous boards that can use this.

As for watercooling the 750, I know it doesn't need it, but I wanted to set up the loop for a future water cooled card. I plan on upgrading to a 970 down the line, and wanted to be able to simply swap the cards out, without having to modify the lines. This is currently done purely for asthetics.

I haven't decided on the PSU yet, but I have seen some decent fully modular ones that are 600-650 watts. Seeing as how the new Maxwell architecture of the 900 series doesn't use up a lot of power, just like my 750, I really won't need a massive power supply for SLi'ing my cards.

Either way, this is still just an idea, and I haven't finalized anything. I know the case is tight, and airflow isn't the best. I'm still working on a few things, so we'll see what happens.

Hi everyone,

I have been wanting to get a Hadron Hydro for quite some time now but recently had my dreams crushed when I realized that my MSI 980 GAMING 4 card is about 10mm too long!

My question for you owners, since you have physically seen the case, is it possible to mod the front panel of the case a little bit to fit the 10mm difference? From what I've seen there is very little room for adjustment in that front panel area.

Regards,
Greg
