Update - 1/21/16

After months of fighting over if this is going to work and trying everything I can think of I was hit with a sudden realization. The nanos with waterblocks are only single slot. I completely glossed over this, trying to fit the design for 1.5 slot cooling... I only figured it out after watching a recent Linus Tech Tips video and i've got to say its extraordinary how easy these things are to overlook. I have figured out a way to mount a radiator in the bottom so I no longer need to use a fitting that doesnt exist for the radiators I currently have to loop it into the case and I no longer have to buy the EVGA kit for their radiator thats designed for the top.

The only problem now is finding a place for the SFX power supply and i believe I found the answer but it will a small problem while gaming under load. We will see how this goes after initial testing but hopefully it will all work out (if not we are going external psu because **** logical designs lol). I might have this all working in the case this weekend minus the watercooling. I need to get an o-ring replaced for the DC-LT pump and a quick size check when the second Nano thats in the mail but if I can manage to get everything in the case and show a proper system config, I will be finishing this project in this case (and it only took a little over a year to do lol).

Of course I will need to get a second case somehow so that this project doesnt look like absolute crud, but thats something that can be done later after I have everything figured out and working.

I give my thanks to some people over on Reddit and in the OC3D irc for helping me with this problem. If it all works, a giant "We Did It Reddit" will be posted lmao since they asked me to.

Good news, There are two gpu's in the case.

Bad news, I cant hear since I decided to grind metal for 20 minutes straight with no hearing protection.

Good Fight case, but I won tongue.gif

Pics coming in a half hour when i get a chance to take them off my camera lol

All that power... in a tinnnny tinny box. Lol tongue.gif

See I told you all you can stick 2 GPU's in a Hadron lmao.






It might not look like it but the cards have "sufficient" enough room to run on air for a bit while i get the rest of the watercooling stuff. Have a plan to mount the PSU but it might need to change locations when I get the radiators into it. When the cards have single slot cooling (specifically the bottom one) Ill be able to throw a radiator into the bottom of the case. Plan is to get some smoke acrylic to mount to the front as a sort of see-through window into the front of the case with the pump/res mounted to the center of the acrylic. I might need to cut a gap out of the bottom of the case to make it fit, if so i'll just get some case feet for the bottom and a rad grill for the bottom side.

Lol, you weren't kidding about going to town with the grinder.

That idea for the front acrylic is great, with some subtle lighting it'll look very cool.
