Welcome to my build log. I am going to shove 2 240mm radiators into this EVGA Hadron "Air".

The build will have water cooled CPU and GPU.

All of the powder coating, laser cutting and etching, metal milling, and vinyl graphics are done be myself.

The powder is Illusion "Twisted Tangerine Orange" from Prismatic Powders.

I have decided to do an EK "CSQ" theme throughout the build as it will match the CPU block as well as the pump cover and VGA block (which won't really be seen though).

Specs so far:
Case: EBGA Hadron Air
Power Supply: Silverstone ITX
Motherboard: ASUS Z97i plus
CPU: i5 4690k
Memory: 8GB Corsair Dominator
Graphics: EVGA GTX 970 (short PCB)

Cooling:
2x - 240 Aphacool NexXxos ST30
2x - Gelid Slim 120mm Fans
2x - Cougar 120mm Fans
EK Supremacy CPU block
EK 670/760 GPU Water Block

Here is what has been done so far:

1) Powder coated the case 2) Powder coated the motherboard pieces
-Custom made I/O cover
-Coated heatsink, RAM, I/O cover, CPU block, chipset
3) Machined the upper radiator and fans so the fans could sit flush on the radiator to give the extra mm of space needed. 4) Milled a bracket out of L aluminum to mount the radiator to the case. 5) Laser cut and bend acrylic lower radiator/fan cover 6) Made a rear cover out of acrylic. 7) Designed a power supply cover to hide the internals and redesigned the rear cover.

Better pictures of the orange. It decided to not be 50 and cloudy out today.

I've decided it is going to get 2 240 radiators in it and I am going to custom make a reservoir for it.
