Hi All,

Had one issue with the sp120 fans where the threading wasn't taking which made it ruin a good fan.

I also wanted to add that the measurement I made is from the top of the motherboard to the top of the heatpipes, when AngelPunisher made his measurements did he start from the PCI slot or the mobo?

EDIT: I made a rough measurement (using a steel ruler) from the top of the PCI slot to the top of my heatpipes and it's more or less 5 inches.

Mark, I was on another forum and 2 guys were able to get the MSI 970 in the Air 240 but the window panel was slightly bending. I guess when the EK block comes out, this card will fit no problem in this case since the shroud and heatsink will be off so then it won't touch the window, unless that block has the inlets high up.

The MSI is a great card, but in a very small case (like SG08) with tight space, it puts out quite a bit of heat.

So now...is it better to push or pull on the rad?

i think push is better gets clean fresh air into the rad instead of trying to suck air through the rad... hope this helps

I'm going to be the dissenter here. This is a beautifully build, but it just too much white in my mind. Personally I wouldn't go crazy, but something a simple as changing the fluid color, painting in some highlights on the motherboard/waterblocks and adding few colored LEDS could make this pop in my opinion. As for the color; I'm not even going to make suggestion, the current white/black would go good with most anything. Even a silvery fluid and RGB LEDs could be fun with all the white to reflect things.

So I'm actually get my case painted at the moment and have been debating on what GPU to get. I think I've finally settled on the EVGA 780 SC because it fits my budget. My question is will a 360mm/60mm thick rad fit in the front in push with that video card? The card measures 10.5". Thanks for the help guys!

Good to know, but I guarantee you that the bending is more than slight in person. The 8 pin cables when not properly shaped and pushing against the window, I consider slight flexing. More than that the panels no longer sit flush and would be something unpleasant for me.

Yeah I agree with you on all the bending that takes place on the PCB, motherboard, and top panel. I'll be keeping an eye on that block to see the size of it and if it will fit in here.

I've noticed unless you already have fans to do push/pull config, it's actually cheaper/you receive lower temps if you actually go to a thicker rad.
(this depends on which brand rad and fans you get obviously)

I'd almost say B does look better
