it fits.. but the slim fan is total rubbish @ cooling rolleyes.gif

Why not stick it at the top of the case? There clearly is room there!!

That is all I needed to know, that the Hybrid fits the Air240 smile.gif as for the slim fan, that is sad, but IF I do this, I would put it at the top as exhaust and the Kraken X61 at the front (if that fits too, 280mm rad)

So yeah, I have to weigh the pros and cons and then decide if I will downsize my rig or not smile.gif

now put the EVGA stock cooler back on and left the cooler out of the case..


with the slim fan.. GPU temps was reaching 70c! it was just heating up


now outside the case with EVGA stock fan.. the card wont go over 44c even after few loops of valley.(bare in mind its a Titan X not 980 ti waiting for EVGA updated shroud as Titan X kits was OOS)

so there you go.. it looks like ill need a different case..

and no a 280 will not fit.. the h220 swiftech barely fit

its an amazing case.. its sad ... that I couldn't make it work

Dammit... so I would have to also sell the Kraken X61 and get a different CPU cooler... I will calculate how much would I have to spend to downsize and how much could I rake in by selling the incompatible components and then decide, thanks

Bit late to the party.

Asus P8Z77M-Pro
i5 3570K
Sapphire Tri-X R9 390 8GB
Corsair H100i GTX
2x SSD's etc...

If you're wondering will the Sapphire R9 390 video card fit this case, yes it fits, even with the watercooler. I've seen this question asked many times but nobody had the answer to.

The only issue I have is the H100i GTX's pipes are so stiff, I can't seem to bend them the right way whilst maintaining the Corsair logo on the waterblock to be the right way up, hence pushing against the top of the case where the top fan is, and also pushing against the window, I do manage to get the side window panel back on but it's pushing pretty hard against it.

Finally I got to putting my modded Air 240 to some use:




For the lack of better components, I used my toy build made out of parts which are too old to even try to sell them.
Unimpressive list of cheap low-end parts (Click to show)
- CPU: AMD Athlon II B24 (dual-core 3.0 GHz) - this one I actually got off eBay for $10 specially for this build
- Motherboard: ASUS M4N64T-M V2
- RAM: ADATA DDR3 PC1333 2 x 4 GB
- Videocard: something that happens to be built into the motherboard
- SSD: Corsair Neutron GTX 120 GB, SATA 3
- PSU: Seasonic SSR-450RM

Maybe one day I'll get some fancier parts for this build. For now I'm still recovering from building my sig rig. Also I probably should work on lighting since it's pretty dark inside, as I just realized after putting this all together.

so i've bought one of these pump/res combos and managed to fit it into the HDD cage but it's a bit of a tight fit for the hoses, i have zero experience with doing a water loop so could someone tell me if these fittings are suitable to attach directly to the pump to achieve a sharp 90 degree angle for the hoses?

want to update what ive been up to, I purchased a Arc mini r2 and its an ok case I wanted a case that would be straight forward and yet again this wasn't.. also its pretty big and I can't get used to cramping cables behind the motherboard, im so used to the corsair 240 ease of just hiding everything but everything still has alot of air to breath.. so yeah I miss my 240 and im going to sell the Arc..

ive also stumbled on this post..

check it out guys
