Hey Guys
 
Thought i would post mine built a few systems but done my best to be as neat as i can. I know its not a comp winner but wanted to give it a shot. After reading and looking at the case i was convinced the H100i would fit and it does. I mounted the fans on the top part of the case and a gentle push and it worked its a tight fit and i would seriously look at your motherboards layout before buying anything as you can see its tight.
 
Here is the spec :).
 
Evga Hadron Hyrdro
MSi Z97I GAMING AC mini-ITX Socket 1150 Motherboard
Intel I5 4690K @4.5ghz
Corsair H100i Water cooler ( Fans replaced with corsair AF120 fans )
Corsair Vengeance Ram 2133mhz
Corsair Force GS 240gb SSD
Corsair 240GB Neutron Series GTX SSD
EVGA GEFORCE GTX780TI
Slim Type DVD Drive Panasonic
 
Keyboard - Perixx PX1100
Mouse - G500
Mat - Corsair Medium
Mic - Logitech
External Drive - Seagate 2TB
Spearkers - Logitech 5.1 X530 ( Years old but still awesome )
 
 
 



 

 
 
 
Thanks :)

Re: Official Post Your EVGA Hadron Thread! 2014/08/27 18:37:03 (permalink)
I finished my Milk build now. Some of you know my build log already from overclock.net: 
I've been researching parts for one month and took me two month to perform the assembly. It took me some time to learn how to weld metal, cut panel with a Dremel, cut a CPU in half, bend acrylic, redo all the electrical connectors, design a custom lightning and much more.
The result is a tiny and very quiet computer with still solid performances.
Please have a look to the build log and tell me if you like it. Suggestions are always welcome.
 
Components:
* EVGA Hadron Hydro case
* CPU i7-4770k
* Mobo ASUS Z97I-PLUS
* RAM G.SKILL Ripjawz X series 2*8Gb
* SSD Samsung 840 Pro 500Gb
* HDD Seagate 4tb Barracuda ST4000DM000
* GPU EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Superclocked
* Case EVGA Hardon Hydro mITX
* Sleeving Black Paracord
* Cooling kit EVGA Hardon Hydro kit (pump and res have been discarded for looks)
* XSPC Acrylic Tank Reservoir for Laing DDC
* Swiftech MCP35X Pump for PC Liquid Cooling Systems
* GPU waterblock EK-FC780 GTX - Nickel (Original CSQ)
* Coolant Ice Dragon Cooling Nanofluid White Color
 
Mod descriptions:
* HDD case removed and replaced with a custom made enclosure directly into the case panel and covered with custom made black acrylic cover. HDD enclosure has a noise dampening system.
* GPU waterblock has been polished. I also drilled LED holes into it and mounted a custom LED lightning.
* CPU heatspreader has been removed, EVGA CPU water cooling block is now directly on the bare die.
* PSU has been transformed to modular. Wires have been cut short and i'm manipulating only extensions that I plugged into new connectors.
* All wires are cut to dimension and sleeved with black Paracord
* Water pump is PWN and mounted on a larger reservoir 
* Water tubes are in bended transparent acrylic and filled with white coolant
* PSU has a custom made cover
* Repainting case interior
* Custom made cable comb out of a dry cleaning hanger ... you'll love this one i'm sure :)

Wow man that is one wild build! Congrats on getting that 780ti i there and making it fit! that side pane is fancy too. I guess that 500W PSU wasnt enough to power that card, so you had to upgrade to a bigger PSU. Great solid build, hope you got into the competition!

I must admit, the sound of PSU in this setup is the thing of the past, other than that I have loads of room for OC. I will have to work on airflow a little bit though. Tomorrow I will try something.

4RTEX I love your build! I've modded my Hadron Air with an ATX PSU as well although in a different spot to yours. I had thought about that position but I didn't want to obscure the window, although I think it would look cleaner windowless just with some grills, similar to yours. It looks like you've just added another piece on top of the original side panel?
 
Here is picture of my mod. (It's a work in progress)

The original panel is cut down on laser cutter in corners and yes, there is another plate on top riveted on. I will post picture from behind later.
 
Your PSU is shorter what would be even better for my setup. Good stuff and keep it sharp!

Wow I wish I had access to a laser cutter. 
 
Thanks. Yeah the reason I have done the mod is for silence. I tried originally with an AX760 but it was just a fraction too long and would impede a longer GPU. None of the 'zero RPM' or fanless PSU's are small enough so I've settled on this Cooler Master V650. It's gold rated, 140mm, semi modular and silent so far.

Live Fast Die Last 2014/09/06 19:30:27 (permalink)
I call my Build "Live Fast Die Last", I am heavily into cars and computers so I thought I would put the best of both together. This is my first custom build for a computer. I have done many other computer builds, but none "custom". I got help from my step-dad in a lot of the troubleshooting, fitment and fabrication. Everything you see except for the powder coating I did myself, such as sleeving, cutting, tubing, etc. It took a total of 4 months, I actually had the build complete at the 1 month mark, but it was not what I imagined it to be so, I stripped it down and started all over again.
 
I originally used the EVGA Hydro water kit, but after seeing my brothers temps on his build (I will post up soon), I felt there was not enough cooling for the CPU and GPU. So I installed an Alphacool 240mmx40mm on top and 80mmx40mm on back for extra cooling. I also went through three different EVGA Hydro pumps that came in the kit and they all leaked, so I upgraded to an aftermarket pump (I cant remember the name, but I will get it on the next post).
 
Other little things I modified was:
- Power supply fans are now 40mm Noctuas (two in rear and one mounted in front)
- SSD are mounted on top of PSU due to HDD Cage being removed.
- Swapped out the power button with nice Red LED Ring button
- Sleeved the entire PSU with black paracord
- Clear Hard tubing between upper RAD and case
- Custom Mesh plate for the 240mm RAD on top
 
The specs are nothing crazy:
Intel I7 4770K
ASUS Impact VI w/ Bitspower Full MB Waterblock
EVGA TITAN Black 6GB
16GB Crucial Ballistix 1600mhz RAM
x2 Samsung PRO 240GB SSD (Raid0)
Water fittings are F1 Racing Tire Tread Patterns
Alphacool 240mm & 80mm Radiator
Thermaltake Red & Black 120mm (x2) & 80mm Fan to cool radiators

@cwjones450, nice build. I'm curious about your PSU mod with the 2 fans. Do you have a build log I could read or some pics of the implementation?

I do not have one right now, let me see if I can put on together in the next week, because I have another power supply opened up to perform the same mod on it.

My system is comprised of...
Intel G3258 @ 4.0 on stock cooler, the Artic Freezer Pro 7 Rev.2 is on the way. Will take the overclock up to 4.6 ish when installed.
EVGA GTX 970 SC ACX 1.0... Sigh... thought I was getting the 2.0, but I digress. Lol, Anyone else do that?
Gigabyte Z97N-WIFI, reliable board that also has great I/O placement for this build.
Kingston Hyper Fury Black 8GB Single DIMM @ 1600mhz. Well priced and leaves a DIMM slot open for 16GB expansion down the road.
Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition fans to replace the stock exhaust fans. They are nice but after installing, i really didn't notice the unit being all that much quieter due to the loud graphics card whining it out, even at idle.
Samsung EVO 240GB + Hitachi Deskstar 2TB
EVGA Hadron Air, LOVE IT. It's just been so fun to build in. Love the look and style.
I slapped a Tek Syndicate decal on the face to give it some personal touch to it. 
 
What do you guys think?

Hello Leigh. I really like your build, Could you tell me how you mounted that radiator in that compartment? The two waterhose are perpendicular to the radiator. I saw you didnt wire the tubes outside of the case. Did you drill two holes on top of the case??

Hello all! I figured I would drop in and show some pics of my new EVGA Hadron Air I just built. I still need to sleeve the 24-pin cabling but that is about it. First off, I will list off all Hardware in my build.
 
OS: Windows 8.1
MOBO: MSI A88XI AC mITX (Socket FM2+)
Processor: AMD A-10 7850k Quad Core APU @4.2ghz (stock voltage)
RAM: AMD R9 Gamer Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 2400mhz
Graphics: PowerColor AMD R9 290X 4GB (OC/BF4 Edition: 1030mhz)
Storage: AMD Radeon 480GB SSD
WiFi: Intel 7260ac
 
Heatsink: Coolermaster GeminII M4
Fans: 2x Corsair AF120 Quiet Edition (Exhausting top fans)
         1x Corsair SP120 Performance Edition (Heatsink fan)
 
Monitor: Asus PB278Q 27" 2560x1440 (Samsung PLS Panel)
 
Here are some pics.
 

 

 

 

 

 
Overall my build went pretty smooth. The only issue I ran into was with some port locations on my motherboard. The 24 pin port is on the top side of my motherboard, so the power cabling barely reaches it. The USB port on my motherboard is on the top as well, off to the left. So the USB cable for the front/side USB ports wouldn't even reach, as well as the other cable for the Audio ports. I just removed the USB/Audio housing and put some electrical tape over the holes, between the side of the chassis and the panel on that side. 
 
Everything runs great in my setup. My CPU temps are 28ish idling, and 48ish under load. Never go above 50c. My R9 290x on the other hand idles around 40c, and up to 90c under full load. The thing runs hot! I looked it up though and I guess this is normal. It was more like 48c / 95c before I re-pasted with some AS5. The stock paste job was horrid! 
 
Well, thanks for looking guys!
 
P.S- My PSU fan seems pretty silent for the most part. After some time gaming it can get kind of loud though.
 
P.SS- This was my first PC Build ever! I have always been more of a laptop guy, buying gaming laptops for most of my life. Iv'e always wanted to build my own PC and a mITX at that. I went AMD to save a few hundred bucks and for my needs it is more than enough performance/power.
