No it has not leds at all on my board and no built in speaker so no beep codes or anything. Annoyingly I had a spare speaker a few months back and threw it away as is never used it in about 10 yrs!
So basically I have no way to know what's wrong and no spares to test if it's mobo or PSU. Not a good day!

Try the paperclip test, it might give a small indication as to whether fan or motherboard is dead.

Hello all,

I am new to the forums, I've built my first desktop late last year, but never really used it too much or pushed it. This past month, I have the "fire" lit again and have been experimenting with overclocking for the first time. Thus far, I have OC the 4690K to 4.2GHz and my Vengeance 16GB to 1600MHz. My biggest thing is that I want to optimize the airflow in this case. I am using the stock H100i 120mm fans setup for pulling air. Then I have two NF-F12 on the other side of the H100i for pushing. The 3rd NF-12 is on the top of the case for exhaust, and the fourth NF-12 is pulling cold air onto the GTX 970 - although I am not sure if this is helping at all, I can always change it to exhaust air.

Tonight I will give MSI Afterburner a go. At the time of this post with running games the GTX970 gets to 73* C after a good hour of gaming and stays constant. That's with all the fans on max, except for the graphics card itself. I will see how the temps fair with the usage of Afterburner to control the fans.

Below are the parts I used for my build back in September of last year.


CPU
Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz Quad-Core (O.C. to 4.2GHz)

CPU COOLER
Corsair H100i GTX 70.7 CFM Liquid

MOTHERBOARD
ASRock Z97M Pro4 Micro ATX LGA1150

MEMORY
Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 x2 (O.C. to 1600 versus 1333, unclear if that is a true OC)

STORAGE
Samsung 850 EVO-Series 120GB 2.5" SSD (OS)
Samsung 850 EVO-Series 500GB 2.5" SSD (Games)

VIDEO CARD
EVGA GeForce GTX 970 4GB (Reference Blower Style)

CASE
Corsair Air 240 MicroATX Mid Tower

POWER SUPPLY
EVGA 850W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX

CASE FAN
Noctua NF-F12 PWM 55.0 CFM 120mm x4
Noctua NF-A8 PWM 32.7 CFM 80mm x2

Thanks for the response. Looks like the cables on the SF600 are 300mm (11.8"), so the cables I have are slightly longer, but not by much.

Hi,

New here and looking to build a water cooled 1070 GTX build in this case.

I know there have been a couple of posts on this point with people saying a Predator 240 wouldn't fit due to the max 360mm length inside the case (GPU + clearance).

But for example a 1070 GTX at 266.7 + Predator 240 at 68mm would be well within the 360mm clearance?

Cheers!

Edit: Tried to model on sketchup

Well 270 + 70 + 25 (fan) = 365mm

Unless you use slim fans or mod the front of the case for pushing the rad further, i'm afraid it's not going to fit :/

predator is 68mm with 25mm fans on it already. I dont see why it wouldn't fit other than maybe the hole spacing for the radiator mounting, but that could be worked around

Hi everyone. Will the GIGABYTE Radeon R9 390 fit this case?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125792

The power PCI-E cables worry me.

I'll post pics once it is done.

Thanks!

Would the GTX 1070 Palit GAMEROCK fit in the Air 240?
http://www.palit.com/palit/vgapro.php?id=2634&lang=en&pn=NE51070T15P2-1041G&tab=sp
It seems huge?
