How in the heck did you fit your waterblock inside that case? I am talking about where the barbs are on the block. It looks like it would be to tall to close the case? Now my EVGA GTX 780 Classy says same measurements just not sure how it can be done? I guess Ill try to look at it again..

Great looking build too, waiting for the GTX 790 or the new ASUS Radeon R9 295X2 thumb.gif

I wonder if 29-31C #4770k (non oc) with H100i on idle is normal in this case.

Anyone to share the temps he gets?
post #605 of 3052
Thread Starter 
what thermal comp do you use? my i5 on 4.2 oc has this:




good way to reduce temps on idle is running c states. Cstates you can active in your bios, they basically underclocks and underpowers your cpu when it's not needed and also extends cpu lifetime smile.gif

Also it depends on how warm your room is, after all the colder your room is the colder ur cpu can go smile.gif But overall it's nice standard temp mate. If you are using stock thermal compound i would suggest to get arctic mx-5

Because the 40mm PSU fan is driving me crazy. It's the most beautiful mITX case there is, imho, but even with a Headset I want to throw it out the window.

To explain, and we're talking under load, idle it is really quiet:
When I set my fans to keep everything about a normal temperature, the PSU gets too hot and the fan sounds like a turbine, clearly audible trough the headset, even my gf 2 rooms away came to ask me what that was...
When I set my other fans a little higher to get more airflow through the case, the whole system is of course louder and the PSU fan makes less noise, but then it has a very distinctive pitch which drives me crazy and it can always be heard.

That's why I wanted a case with a regular PSU fan. Could have tried to mod an SFX into the Hadron, but I don't want to spend time on serious mods right now.

I'll sell the Hadron or I'll put an APU in there, like an A6, and use it as an HTPC, since my Boxee Box starts to make strange noises and isn't supported anymore since they sold out to Samsung. With so little load, the PSU should be as silent as it is in my build on idle, so that won't be a problem anymore.

Wouldn't of thought that psu would of been so loud that's madness, I can completely understand because silence is a big thing for me too.
Well good luck with the build look forward to seeing the photos. Should have some of my build posted up soon too thumb.gif
Check out my vid if you get the chance and let me know what you think biggrin.gif

On the front there is a stop fitting and a 90° angle, both bitspower
On the interior side there ir a temo sensor from Monsoon and a rigid fitting.... From there go out a mini acrylic tube to the reservoir, that is connected with a 90° angle and another rigid fitting, again bitspower

Anything touches the case on the top or on side, so it's ok.

Good luck with yours!

Ps:hate the 295x2 design... Puagh

Thanks for ur reply.

I m using Noctua paste n my room s temp is around 19-22. Is it still ok or it could go lower?

I didn t use washers installing h100i backplate on impactiv and it was a bit loose but when i installed the pump everything was fine. Might be this?
