yeahhhh, the 240 2 OR 242 thinking.gif That'd be great! It'd be easy and would probably sell quite a few more cases

In other news I'm thinking about switching to a 540... I kinda have the desire to go with an 8c 16t xeon on x79 and haven't found a decently priced m-atx board yet mad.gif

The same idea would be the same except I'd probably actually put some rads in the case this time haha. Or I might just get really crazy and see if i can't spin a full atx mobo 90° and stick it in the 240 haha.
something like this

A bigger 240 wouldnt be a 240 anymore smile.gif
For me the case size is just perfect, you just have to choose your components wisely.

Replaced my Corsair Obsidian 350D case to Air 240 yesterday and Asus GTX 1080 Strix fitted well, only problem was that i have Corsair H100i GTX cooler, which made installation little bit harder, but it still just fitted. Here couple pic's from my build:

Nice, thanks for the pictures.
Could you please write us your temperatures, fan speeds, etc too? Whats your clearance from GPU to the window? Do you have an m.2 ssd under the gpu maybe?
The question is, whats the drawback of a big custom cooled gpu, with low clearance in this case. Where does its heat go, what else does it heat up, and if its worth to get instead of a reference card, wich exhausts its heat directly out in the rear...

GPU temp is about 75°c @ 2050 MHz (stock fan curve) and CPU about 60°c (corked CPU @ 4.8GHz 1.4v) while gaming. Front fans running @ 1500 rpm, top fans @ 1400 rpm. Fans run different speed cause i wanna have little excess pressure inside the case to keep dust away. Heat goes up, like it should. I have Samsung 950 Pro 256GB M.2 SSD under the GPU, but temps wont have any effect to it's performance, cause games are on HDD. There is about 5mm clearance between gpu and window and about 15mm clearance between gpu and H100i GTX.

1400-1500 rpm isnt exactly a low noise cooling imo...
But what concerns me more, is your ssd. That 950 pro can throttle under high temps too. Whats the temp on it?
I have a Predator under my 980 ref, and that can also go up to 55°C while gaming. And remember, the ref does not really spill its heat on the m.2. I have read somwhere, that these ssd-s throttle somwhere around 70°C. If your strix puts its 75°C directly on it, this could be very well a problem.

75°C is okish I guess, how much can you boost the core clock? what is the theoric asic quality of your card? Is the 2050Mhz a +114Mhz from the factory overclock?
