Corsair Carbide Air 240 Owner's Club - Page 158

Thanks Joseph, much appreciated smile.gif

Just picked up an air 240 for $40 used, I was wondering what air coolers would fit in this machine?

would the Macho 90 fit in here @135mm? I saw someone measure the depth of the chassis and it was a little more than 135mm... So I was thinking that perhaps it could fit in there.

I know that some of you guys are running the noctua cooler in there that is listed at 125mm and it looks like that it fits in there fine.

Can anyone with an air cooler that is 125mm show if there may be an extra 10mm in space? or is it a really tight fit?

So I got a Corsair HG10 N980 and I broke one of the standoffs for the bracket, getting my RMA replacement soon, but I was able to fit 2 H75's in the front after like 20 minutes of fiddling around with angles and stuff.

Hi guys,

Been planning to build a new rig for ages now but kept getting delayed for some reason or the other. I'm finally ready to get this started within the next few weeks, so would love some comments/advice/insight on the parts I've picked so far:

Corsair Carbide Air 240 Chassis (DUH)
i5 6600k
Gigabyte GA-Z170MX-Gaming 5 Micro ATX motherboard
Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 2400MHz
Corsair RM 750W PSU (only Corsair PSUs available to me here)
Gigabyte GTX 980 TI G1

So a few questions:

1) What cooler should I pick for this rig? My friend was offering me his barely used Hyper 212 EVO for free but I heard that won't fit in this chassis. And unfortunately not many air coolers available here so I assume I'll have to get one of the corsair liquid ones. Which one should it be?

2) I saw plenty of people using the Gigabyte G1 980 TI in this thread, so am I right to assume it fits nicely in this chassis?

3) The PSU I picked should fit fine in this right?

4) How many separate fans should I buy for this chassis and where will they be attached?

Thanks in advance guys!

Heya SpikeKun,

1) 4) if i would go now for your setup to buy, i would consider Noctua NH-D9L as cooler and i would buy 4 Noctua fans, 2*120mm for front intake, 2*80mm for exhaust on back of case and maybe also 5th as exhaust on top...but i bought components in June and went for Xeon with stock fan and so there was no need to get another cooler

2) GPU is fine and with air cooling only setup it would fit in Air 240 just fine.. smile.gif

3) Corsair may have great PSUs but my first pick is Seasonix X class...

GL and looking forward to see your pics smile.gif

Thanks for your reply! Unfortunately I am unable to buy Noctua coolers here. My only options are the corsair ones. I was thinking about the H100i GTX.

Same deal with PSUs, I only have access to corsair here.

As for the fans, those should be easier to import so I'll try to get 4. But just in case, any other brands that are as good as Noctua here?

Thanks again!

Here means on forums or your location? Where are you from and at what store do you buy items?

I'm currently located in Pakistan so have access to very limited stuff. I'm getting most of my parts via Amazon through a friend coming from the US soon, but he is unable to bring along the cooler and PSU, hence the only choices I have are the Corsair items available here. For coolers, the H80i or the H100i GTX and for PSUs, the Corsair CX or RM series. The fans available here are mostly Corsair ones as well.
