Corsair Carbide Air 240 Owner's Club - Page 155

post #1541 of 3769
How much smaller is this case compared to the TT Core X2? I'm trying to find some size comparisons with other mATX cases, but can find none.

The carbide air 240 is 12.60" x 10.20" x 15.60"
The Core X2 is 18.3 x 12.6 x 21.3 inch)

The carbide air 240 is significantly smaller.

Yeah I see. Will an evga 980ti classified fit in it, or is it too tall?

Joined the club last week, I'm planning on putting another 980ti in there but I need to change the fans at the moment as the ones that came with the case and watercooler are very noisy. Thinking of going for those shiny new black noctua f12's.

5820k (oc'd to 4.4ghz stable)
Corsair h100i gtx
Evga micro 2 motherboard
Corsair dominator platinum 2666 ddr4 16gb (oc'd to 2800 stable with xmp profile)
Evga 980ti sc+ (oc'd to 1480mhz stable)
Evga supernova g2 850w

cpu temp is between 23-27c, max 30 when gaming. under stress testing with aida64 it never gets above 43c - really happy with that

gpu temp is around 30c at idle, 76-77c max with 60% fans. would like to try and move the card to the above slot but there are cables in the way. not sure how a lot of you guys have really clean builds without full wc loops, as I found it really hard to get cables full out of the way.

Those stock corsair fans are loud, because they probably spin near/on the maximum to give you that 43c on load wink.gif (if the temp is even realistic....did you check all the boxes for cpu stressing in aida?)
Reaching this temp will be probably loud with any fans other than GT's.

When i had the H100i gtx in my 240 build i had similar results (altough my max temp did go aove 50 degrees at one point), using the stock corsair fans and another set of corsair fans pulling. And yes, they where verry loud ! Too loud for my liking so i got rid of the entire setup all together.

Yeah I should've mentioned that 2 of my fans aren't currently usable with pwm so they're on full blast the whole time. The controllable ones are not very efficient at lower speeds so I'll make the switch.

Has anyone sound treated the air 240 with foam? Unsure where you'd do this but it's another thing I'm considering to reduce noise. Don't think I'll be happy until it's whisper quiet at idle.

I dont think that the Air 240 is suitable for noise dampening. There are a lot of meshes/grilles/holes on every side, and the case material is also very thin.
Maybe covering all the remaining fan positions after instlaling all the fans you need, brings something, but not much.
