Refer to the pictures for easiest explanation of this.

I have both. biggrin.gif The only questions I can't really answer are GPU fitment for the Air 240 as it's my NAS case. I'm going to be working on a project later this week to incorporate 6HDD cage into the back of the case. I just want to buy my new PSU before I do that. (Also picking up a R9 290 from a friend for 35 bucks because it BSODs in his system. I'm hoping that I can just add some more voltage and that will fix the problem. Otherwise it gets mounted on the wall.

Ok, then could you please answer the cpu cooler height question?

Nope, its not. It does fit higher.

Legitreview fitted a Freezer 7 in, wich is clearly higher than 120mm... but no one seems to actually have measured it.

I dont understand why corsair does not give an exact heigt, since its a HUGE difference, if it fits 120, or 130, since in 120 no tower cooler fits, but in 130mm already 10-15.

So this is why i asked someone to measure it wink.gif

I can measure it tomorrow when I wake up. I'll do it from the pcb of my motherboard.

I just measured it, at least for my board the clearance is 131 mm. I use a Z97I-Plus and measured from the mobo to the edge of where the top cover comes on!

This means that the Noctua NH-C14 fits! thumb.gif

Of course, if your socket is located centrally like mine you could use it, but if you get a mobo that has it too close to the GPU, the NH-C14 might not fit!

Just measured it while constructing my 240 last night. The height from cpu to the edge of the frame is exactly 130mm. I guess it's hard for most people to measure with a cooler attached..
As for other clearances... I was happy to see I could mount the H75 at the front (intake) and still get 2 (120mm) fans in at the top (exhaust).

Looks like my new 780 is at the post office! Once I get it installed, I'll post some pics. biggrin.gif
(This is my first time running SLI so I'm pretty excited)

At least it actually sticks to the case. The DEMCi filters really struggle with that.
