No, Lightning Edition is biggest card I've ever seen.

What I really meant was the height, looks like they are the same, approximately 139.9mm. But you're right with the length, Lightning edition is longer. 329.9mm so that won't fit the case. 250D can only support up to 290mm.

Quick question, what's the best way to air cool the 250d? Stick an air penetrator fan on the front, and another intake on the side? Or an exhaust on the side? I was reading a review that said air penetrator on the front and a side fan, but I've no idea what sort of side fan to use or if it should be intake or exhaust. I'm thinking of fitting a i7k and an evga acx+ gtx 980ti. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Ian

Edit: or if I did water-cool, is there a cooler like the corsair h100i gtx that would fit? And could it be fitted that with a evga hydro gtx 980ti? Thanks again

h100i will fit, but the newer model h100 gtx you will have trouble with, unless you were to purchase slim fans for it.

As far as air cooling, I am using the stock front fan, along with 2 120mm exhaust fans on the side and a Noctua L9x65 CPU cooler on an i5 4690k. Getting idle temps of 28c and 54c under max load. From what I have read, I can cool an i7 with the L9x65 without an issue (NOT overclocked) but max load temps will be a little higher. You could also add 2 80mm at the back of the 250d if you wanted, but unless you are overclocking, you should be fine.

I cannot comment on the hydro gtx 980ti. I am running a 970gtx, but I believe its a bit smaller than the 980ti.

hey guys i just bought this case yesterday and might buy some custom sleeve modular for my super flower psu.
just wondering if 15cm length of the modular cable would be sufficient? seller recommend me 30cm. how you guys think of it? thanks

1 x ATX 24 Pin (15cm)
1 x EPS 4+4 Pin (15cm)
2 x PCIe 6+2 Pin (15cm

The 24 pin connector "could" work with a 15cm length since it's pretty much located on the same spot regardless of the motherboard you'll be using,
but it'll all come to the modular layout of your PSU and the way you orient it.
CPU and PCIe connectors will require at least 20 cm, and a little bit of slack could still be convenient.
I'd just get a 30cm kit as your seller recommends to avoid any kind of hassle!

250D and the H100I GTX

"newer model h100 gtx you will have trouble with."

I had no trouble. The MB I used was a Gigabyte GA-Z97N-Gaming 5, the processor is a 4790K. The rest, I think you can figure out. The way to install it is remove the bottom bracket that the radiator screws on to and replace it as the very last thing you do on your build. You can reinstall the bracket without dismounting the radiator. Don't get me wrong, it's a perfectly tight fit but it's actually easy to get it in there (and out if you have to). I can also fit the optical drive tray in if I want to.

I could not mount the radiator fans on the other side of the radiator even if I wanted to because it would cause a clearance issue with the bottom hose but the way I have it is recommended anyway.

The Gigabyte MB is solid and build very well. The bios firmware is stable and good but the interface is not as good as I would like but I am not much of a tweaker in my old age so the way it is setup is the way it will probably remain. I know, my GPU is old but I laugh to myself when I think about people spending $600+ on a video card and tweak out on an $80 case. I want more computer for my $$ and something that will last 5 years or so.

You should not think about using slim fans unless they are 4 pin (PWM) the cooler and fans should be controlled by either the MB or the Corsair link software and 3 pin fans won't cut it. Also, the fans included are designed to provide enough air pressure through the radiator to be effective. I cannot find a PWM fan with LED lights. I don't think they exist. The Corsair fans are quiet enough in quiet mode.

I also flipped the fans around after taking these images so air is pulled in to the case rather than pushed out. All air is pulled in and only exhausts out the 2 80mm ports in the back and the drive bay at the back. I need to make sure dust and cat hair stays out of my case. I also live in a Hawaiian rainforest 1 mile from the beach so I was glad when liquid cooling solutions became easy. Often times, it's 93 degrees in my office with 70-80% humidity.

I wish they gave us magnet filters for all of the vents in the case.

Edit: I would like to add that the EVGA SuperNOVA 650 G1 80+ GOLD, 650W Continuous Power, Fully Modular is also awesome. I used to cringe every time I would reboot for windows but now the PSU doesn't do the entire power down and power up when rebooting which will prolong the life of the system. The cables and everything EVGA adds to their products is just top notch. The last time I had to RMA power supplies, it cost me $40 in shipping and I wanted to go postal.

Aloha!

Is there any reason this mobo won't fit with my H100i and gtx 780 ??

From the pic it looks like the M.2 slot is pre-filled with a wifi card. Would a Samsung 950 Pro even fit in there? Looks like the processor might be in the way?

edit - Nevermind. It will only fit a 40mm M.2 card.

it does work with the h100i its what I have, the M.2 slot is on the bottom of the mobo and uses the 5th and 6th sata port lanes so you cant use them with the m.2 drive
