Sounds good! Lots of PSU power biggrin.gif How do you like the fans? I've gone for the quiet edition myself, but I wonder if I'm being needlessly sensitive.

PSU taken from my old build, edit I have quiet edition fans, does anyone know how I can control these using corsair link? I cant change the speed or anything nothing happens when making changes.

I am in Atlanta, GA in the United States. I have a technical question. I wanted to know if I could delid my i7-4770K and mount it without the IHS with the asus impact full cover block (3831109821060). Will it make good contact? I do not believe that I can use the naked mount kit with the asus impact full cover block (3831109821060). Should I be looking for another strategy to delid my cpu and drop my temps? Should I reinstall the IHS once I improve my TIM then install the full cover block?

The Mini itx 380t looks interesting. But too "bulgy" for my tastes.

Here is a comparison that was posted in the news release thread;

Looks like from this it is about the same size, but from other pictures the 380t isn't using the space as well as the 250d

I'm not too entirely correct about this, and it's purely a guess...
But I noticed the matx 240 and the mitx might be different cases with the same name?

If you see them present the mitx one is in the normal standing position, with the corsair label the normal air 540 direction

The matx one is on its side, with the label point upwards towards the window, with the window facing up

I'm just guessing....

You won't be able to naked mount with the ek full cover block, even with the naked ivy kit, because you actually change the cpu backplate on the board for a "true haswell" backplate, and the block won't be able to reach the die, due to it being manufactured in a way that it'd all uniformly leveled to where each part is, unless you can find a way to rise the cpu socket or add more copper to the bottom of the waterblock where it touches the processor it will be impossible

It is most likely the same case since on the corsair website they say you can orient the 240 several ways. (under Flexible Installation)

The Air 240 is a single case which does both mITX and uATX and can be stood up or laid down flat, the reason they talk about them in different terms is that when you're using it as mITX you can cram 2x240mm radiators into it but you can only use one 240mm rad with a uATX board. I think they just want to be clear that you *can* get 2x240mm rads in but only with an ITX board.

Thanks. The 240 is slightly wider than the 250D. The 250D is already quite wide so I'll stick with it. The 380t is way too bulky. But it is an airflow optimised case so you could probably fit a NH-D15 in there whereas the 250D cannot.
