Nice case selection/build. I must recommend removing the plastic and adding an SSD. +1

Hey, did you have any trouble fitting the MSI GTX 970 Gaming in the Hadron? I've got that same exact graphic card but it's 3mm longer than the maximum clearance specified on the Hadron Air.

Hey, is your 500w psu enough for a 970 and an overclocked cpu?

Yes the PSU is enough for GPU & the OC CPU... i already surfed the internet for this query before buying this system and i am facing no issues related to PSU in handling demanding games like Witcher, GTA 5, COD Adv Warfare etc... All the games run smooth with high settings...havent felt the need for overclocking .... may be in near future for more demanding games..

Thinking of buying the same card and case :) Did you face something that may help a future builder?

Thats gr8... the pts u shud consider before buying:- 1. Length of graphics card. Its v imp. The card should not be greater than 11" in length and not greater than 5.6" in width. 2. The motherboard u buy should be mini itx which is compatible with this case. 3. RAM should be compatible with the motherboard u decide to purchase. Just visit the motherboard website and check the memory compatible section. RAM model must be included in its compatibility list. 4. If u decide to buy OC CPU compatible motherboard, then in order to utilize this feature its better to buy OC processor, OC RAM and OC graphics card. 5. Make sure not to screw ur motherboard processor pins when installing CPU cz i hav already done that with my Asrock z97I motherboard :( . Consequently i had to purchase new gigabyte motherboard cause it cannot be repaired neither claimed for replacement under warranty. Be very careful. Never touch the pins of motherboard CPU socket pins with fingers or any other object. 6. Buy 7200 rpm Hard Disk and add 128 GB SSD for windows. I just mentioned all the imp pts so that u dont face any problems in ur future builds. Hope it helps :)

How'd the GPU fit in there? It's 2mm too long.
