Looks like it will fit length and height wise, but at 51mm, I think it might be too wide. My 290X Gaming 4G is 39mm wide and just barely fits through the front cutout. Width would be the only thing causing an issue. I can measure the width of the cutout when I get home for you

Before buying my 290X I was considering a 390, and at the time the only option was the Gigabyte G1. Not sure if that still holds true since I stopped looking at cards when I got the 290X

Shop's info:

mmm...it will fit?? no one has this card with this case?

Thanks!


Actually, the MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G does fit: a guy posted pics in this thread:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1515948/official-thermaltake-core-v1-owners-club/100#post_23249439

Here's one


FWIW I have a MSI GTX 980 in mine. It was a VERY tight fit for the PSU connectors were forced against the case, but the GPU fit through the front panel cutout with no problem.

Here's the measurement I took a while back. 51 mm is too wide.

Hmm.. Interesting that a 141mm card fits but coolers over 140mm do not. Thanks for the correction though.

I wonder if it might be worth it to add a list of higher end cards to the OP that are confirmed to fit as this seems to be a very common question in this thread.

Hi all,

I am using the core V1 in a build and am looking at air coolers. I know the official spec for cooler height is 140mm but I measured with my digital calipers the distance from MB to top panel and it looks more like a max of 150mm to me. I didnt measure from CPU socket tho. Maybe that eats up another 5mm. I'm eying the Cryorig H7 at 145mm tall.

Is anyone running a +140mm cooler? Did you have to put the window panel on the side to make it fit?

Anyone with a 140mm cooler notice any extra head space?

Thanks!

Yeah msi's 390/x is to fat, i found some good pictures from a upgrade that show it well.

Picture of the MSI 380 (4cm thicknes):




Imo, the most perfect fit ever! tongue.gif

Msi 390/X is 11mm thicker and makes that impossible.

Hey all,

I'm about to put together my new ITX build today, and I had a quick question for you more experienced gurus:

Should I face my PSU fan up (pulling air from beneath the mobo and venting out), or down (pulling air from outside the case and venting out)?

Reason I ask is that I'm using an M.2 SSD for my only hard drive (a Samsung SM951 @512GB), and I've heard that they can get a little warm during operation, and I'm concerned that there's not a lot of airflow going under the mobo for cooling of that area. (I'll have the 200mm fan blowing air through the case, but that might not get enough circulation to that area.)

My overall build is actually incredibly simple; I went for silence, efficiency, and compactness this time around.

Case: The lovely Thermaltake Core V1
CPU: i5-6600K (I decided not to wait for an i7-6700k; for gaming its not really necessary)
GPU: PNY GTX 980 XLR8 Pro OC (for the curious: it fits, but just barely)
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V DDR4 16GB (2x8) 2400
SSD: Samsung M.2 SM951 @512GB
PSU: EVGA 220-G2-0750-XR fully modular PSU
Mobo: ASRock Z170 Gaming-ITX/ac
Cooler: Noctua NH-US9
Extra case fans: SilenX EFX-08-15 80mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan (x2)

One thing I like is that cabling should be stupidly easy: 1 cable to the mobo, 1 to the GPU. Everything else plugs right into the mobo. Should leave plenty of space for airflow.

So should I flip the PSU up to enable a little extra airflow for the SSD? Or leave it face down to ensure it stays cooler?

Thanks!

Hi, well all the PSUs blow air inside itself so, You should/most put the PSU face down.

I'd definitely go face down it's it's pulling air in from outside the case. The bottom is filtered for this reason. Air flow shouldn't be an issue at all since you'll have 80mm fans installed as well
