CAVEAT: you may have a problem with the combination of the two depending on where the edge of the fan is. The length of that card(276mm) plus the 25mm fan depth is greater than the total length of the inside of the case. IMO, the AF140 fan that comes with the case provides ample enough airflow. Plus, its pretty dam quiet.

Thanks for the reply!!
I was thinking of using the Bitfenix Spectre Pro with the h100i and the MSI R9 290 on a Maximus motherboard...everything should fit, or I could keep the 140mm as you suggested...

Hello there!
Seeing that probably this is the most active/largest community for the 250D so far, I decided to join your forums, cuz I am planning to build my new rig in this case. I am not a hardcore 'overclocker', but would like to do some half-decent oc on my planned 4670K and a gtx770. Nothing extreme and i hope you can answer some questions for me. What do you think its possible to achieve with the stock fans and lets say the h100i. Is the h100i even needed? What is the common recommendation cooling and motherboard wise? I am on a budget so price/value is the most important factor.
Thanks a lot!

So I am kinda new here, and meanwhile, I am designing my small form factor system with the 250D Case. Just wanna see if this configuration for this case is a good one that supports most games in 1920x1080 in at least high, especially CryEngine. SO here is my proposed specs.


Case: Corsair Obsedian 250D
Mobo: ASUS ROG Maximus VI IMPACT
CPU: Intel i7 4770k
Graphics: Nvidia GTX 780 Direct CooIing 3GB GDDR5
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3
HDD: Western Digital 1TB HDD Black Edition
Disk Drive: ASUS 24X SATA DVD Read/Write
PSU: Cooler Master 650W PSU
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium OEM

Thanks & do leave some comments. This build should cost me SGD2.2K as I am on a budget.

I don't know if this is known already but at first the Asus 780 DCII was assumed not to fit this case.

Since i contacted corsair about this and they told me i indeed might have problems with the topcover i never tried this but since i have problems with my 780 Ti i installed my spare 780 DCII and....

It DOES fit. It is not touching the topcover and till now no problems with heat from the pipe!

The pic is a bit bad but its all i have to show atm

Assuming you have a decent chip you can probably get to 4.5 and stay below 75C. Don't know until you test and see what your working with. Start smaller, say 4.2 and work your way up. As far as H100i being needed, it will yield better temperatures than, say the H60, by possibly 7-10C. Could be more, could be less. There are other coolers with performance in between the 2 mentioned. I run an H75 in the front of the case and get pretty decent temps on my 2700k @ 4.5. The H75 also a bit quieter than an H100i when using stock fans. It comes down to preference of how much noise is acceptable vs what kind of performance you want. I chose the H75 because of the flexibility of where i could place it in the case as the air flow in the 250d inst typically conventional in relation to the tower cases and sitting in my entertainment center that traps heat, I wasn't sure what would work best for rad placement.

As it is only for gaming and on a fairly low resolution you could save some money by dropping to an i5 and using a 770 or 280x and then take some of that money towards a SSD Bootdrive.

Thanks for your reply! I might go for the H75 as well, since noise lvl is kinda important. Can I ask what motherboard are you using?

The EVGA Z77 Stinger which is known to have bios issues, however I dont seem to have issues other than some missing features that I'd like. The new EVGA Z87 Stinger is supposed to have corrected all saud issues with the old board, but is still expensive. If you are going for a budget you can get something cheaper I'm sure. Definitely stick with the Z87 chipset though if you're planning to overclock, and do the research. There may be some other threads here that can sway you one way or the other on which motherboard will best suit your needs. You can check out my build in my sig.
