INTRO/GOALS
This is going to be my first custom water cooled build. After selling my EVGA SR-2 in a 900D I wanted to go the exact opposite way in terms of size and get a much power in as small of a package as possible. I came across other Hadron builds on the forums and i think the case is beautiful and perfectly suited for a small but very powerful 4k gaming machine. I know 2 way SLI would be best for frame rates but for the most part all i play is Diablo 3. Input on the build is always welcome I'm not an expert by any means and will be following a lot of guides on OCN during the process. If everything goes well work will start as soon as the case arrives and should be completed sometime in the spring. I will be buying parts as i can afford them or they are released. Now that the intro is over i'm by no means a writer let's look at the parts list
