Corsair Carbide Air 240 Owner's Club - Page 153

post #1521 of 3774
This picture probably helps explain what I'm talking about - look at the fan at the top of the case. Imagine that with a radiator attached to it - I'm worried it will be obstructing the power cables going into the motherboard, and possibly even that EVGA heatsink thing.

Oh, how I wanted to downsize my rig from the NZXT H440 to the Corsair Air240... but my 980Ti Hybrid wouldn't fit in there frown.gif

Can you explain what the problem was with getting it to fit?

I didn't try it personally, I simply see that the watercooling hoses that come from the side of the GPU would interfere with the case side panel. From what I see the side panel is almost literally touching the GPU, when put on. See picture of my current setup, the hoses from the GPU come from a very bad angle frown.gif

That's a good point, but do they really come out much further than the power cables? I have a 980 Ti Hybrid already in my existing setup and i'm not sure they do...

Here's another pic...

Wow, from this perspective there seems actually enough space to bend the tubing thumb.gif From what I have read, the tubing is flexible so this is AWESOME news! biggrin.gif

Hey, I bought a MSI GTX 980 ti card and it's so big I cannot close the door with the Corsair 240 case... How are you managing?

Not all 980 Ti cards are the same height. I almost bought the EVGA 980 Ti Classified until I found a post by someone who was having the same problem as you. The Classified is taller than my FTW, so I wouldn't have been able to put the side cover on. Here's what one guy did to make his bigger card fit:

I made a post on an earlier page with a list of cards that fit. If compiled the data from a lot of sources and most of the confirmation comes from pictures. Classified doesn't fit, hybrid does. I've seen 2 people say it does. The tubes push against the window but it still closes.
