Description

Took about a month to get all the parts together but now it's finally complete. Case stays relatively cool, with ambient temps in the mid 30's and just hitting 70C under load. Noctua fans are very quiet and only become slightly louder when gaming.

i5 4670k @ 4.2GHz GTX 780 Ti @ 1400/3600MHz Valley Benchmark = 76.1 FPS Ave @ 1080 Extreme HD

Note the Pictures aren't a very good representation of what it looks like in person. There is no pink hue at all, rather the whole system is a dark deep purple. Using Phobya UV Led

Do you know how many people will try to see if they can find your house based off the reflected image? Lol.

Made the case look so much better. Love Noctua, hate how it ruins the look of a sleek black maachine

It's humorous that they call it UV.

http://www.ledmuseum.candlepower.us/led1/mbspec5.htm while it is possible they emit a small tail into the UV it would be extremely unethical to sell these without clear warning that it can and likely will cause retina damage and skin cancer without a proper OD window within which they will be confined.

This is one of the coolest builds I've seen in a long time, I actually watched a video on that case from JayzTwoCents and based on his review I actually would never build in that case, watch the video to find out why. However having seen your build using it, it looks amazing, you did a great job with the build and you must have some tiny hands/fingers to have setup some of that cabling. anyways, that is a kickass little machine, and the cpu cooler and lighting helps hide the ugly stock cables that come with that case. Great job! +1

I actually have really big hands, Can palm a basketball, so I had an extra difficult time working on the case. But that shouldn't stop you from building one your own. Theres tricks to getting everything in there, you just need some patience to figure them out. Once you get it down its no different than any other case

I'm looking to do a very similar build as yours & I have a few questions. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3baE1

I noticed the CPU fans are facing a different direction in some of the pictures. Why the turn? Did you have trouble with cabling, memory height, airflow, noise, or something else?

What's the clearance like for your memory & the Noctua? I'm looking at picking up the Curcial Ballistix Tactical ( http://pcpartpicker.com/part/crucial-memory-blt2kit8g3d1608dt1tx0 ) they are a tad higher then your Ballistix Sport. Research on-line states that Sport are 1.18in high where as Tactical are 1.4in high. Did you run into any problems with CPU cooler vs. memory height? Any idea if there is another 0.22in of clearance (or more to be safe) under any parts of the Noctua that might be overlapping the memory? (I know they have Low profile Tactical but I'd rather not get them if I don't have to.)

Do you see a big need to replace the stock fans that come with the case with the Noctua fans you purchased for the purposes of OCing CPU & GPU? I would guess they will be quieter & move more air but is it really needed right away? or as a possible upgrade that can wait? or needed at all? (I understand this might not be easily answerable due to our CPU's & GPU's being different.)

Thanks in advance for any advice you can give!

I changed the CPU Fan orientation so that I'd get better airflow through the top of the case. The exhaust fans really helped draw out more heat from the heatsink in the vertical orientation over the horizontal one, and for obvious reasons. I dropped maybe 5C using the vertical layout. You will have some clearance issues though with the Noctua setup, so I had to slightly stagger my fans off the heatsink itself to make it fit. There's maybe a 1cm gap if you look closely.

Using the Noctua setup my memory had no clearance at all. The Brackets that hold the fans to the heatsink are resting on top of the ram. This case is really challenging, but with enough time and patience you can make it work.

I replaced the stock fans that came with the setup cause I wanted the best airflow I could get knowing this case was going to be restricted due to it's heat. I wouldn't want to replace the fans at a later time as you would basically have to rip everything out to get to them. Get the right fans now and don't plan on adjusting things later. Trust me, once you're done building it, you won't want to do it again and again.

  • 68 months ago

Nice, I wouldn't mind a 1cm gap as long as the offset doesn't make the fans incredibly noisy.

Good to know on the memory clearance. I'll change to the low profile Tactical to make my life ez-er.

Darn, I wanted to spread out some extra costs a bit. But yea, knowing how I build rigs if it's that much a pain in the butt to just add some case fans a month or two down the road I'll end up not doing it. I'll just grab some now.

I have to say you've made me look at the Hadron in a whole new light. Previously I was a bit skeptical of the case, but your build really makes me want to consider it for myself. Really a sublime color combo there with UV purple, the GeForce GTX logo in green, and those Noctua brown/tan fans (which only ever look good in combination with UV...)

If I could give you more than one +1 I would! Thanks for sharing.

Alright, this is badass-- especially with the UV lights. Glad I saw this-- gearing up to build and was going to just use RGB LEDs, but I'd been thinking about how cool UV could be... then I came across this while browsing today. Rad.

One question-- on FrozenCPU's site, the one review on those LEDs mentions they're really tough to install because the coating on the LEDs doesn't stick well to many things. What'd you use to attach them? (While I've built a number of PC's in my day, I've never really gotten into customization, so this will be new for me.)

Again, awesome build. Glad I stumbled across this before doing my build.

The strip lighting sticks everywhere really well except the top where gravity is pulling it down. I have used 3M tape I picked up at Home Depot, and it's been holding up pretty well now.

What was your reasoning for going with the ASUS mobo instead of the EVGA one? Just curious.

  • 69 months ago

Way better build quality, Better capacitors, heat dissipation features, and Great bios features. This is by far the best itx mobo I have used so far.

I don't understand, why would you use something that can cool an entire building to cool a pc? That Noctua though, +1

  • 69 months ago
  • 1 point

For overclocking reasons of course, plus the intel heatsink is just trash. I lowered temps by almost 20C by replacing the intel with the Noctua unit. Its also really quiet compared to most heatsink fans.

CPU at 4.2 GHz at 1.28V ambient 37C maybe lower, the GPU is also OC'd and runs at 30C ambient. Both CPU and GPU hit 70C under load

I just love this case and I want to buy it but there is one huge problem and it is psu. 500w psu is not enough for 780 I think how did you handle this problem? I mean that psu is rated at 40 amps on the +12v rail and gtx 780 needs a PSU has at least 42 AMPS. You can skimp on the wattage a little (-50) but you canNOT skimp on the amps. Ever.

Is that the only orientation the CPU Heatsink can be mounted, or could you mount it horizontally? I'm not very knowledgeable with heatsinks, you might just have the fans on different sides for all I know. +1

Just thinking.... The next build you post should be named Anubis, after the Egyptian god of the dead. Or was that Osiris? I don't remember anymore... Just name your next build Anubis just to keep with the whole Egyptian mythology. ALSO The purple light with the name makes the build look so much more awesome.
