Like others already mentioned, this is not going to fit. Consider this one: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/X99M_WS/

This one may be too tall - check vertical clearance, discussed in this thread. Generally speaking, this case has just about enough clearance for a standard-height graphics card. Anything with waterblock on it is a very tight fit at best.

Where did you get those 80mm fans?

I'm pretty sure they were from eBay. They're Xilence Red Wing PWMs. Seem to be readily available still...

Also, i used some cotton buds to clean some mobo parts that had dust in it.
The reservoir was cleaned with water+non-abrasive detergent.




This is "Frank", the Frankstein drain-valve system.
Unfortunately, i would need to make a mod to use it in the bottom part of the case, but my brother did not allowed me to do that mad.gif



For now that's what i have.
More updates tomorrow.

See this is why I can't go to a full blown custom loop. I'm so frigging anal about keeping stuff clean I'd be taking it apart every 6 months or less to clean it.

You're right, imo, custom water cooling isn't a solution, it's a hobby.
AIO water cooling are very decent nowadays, and much less expensive.
But the maintenance of a custom wc can be made once in a year without problems.

Just scrolled through a lot of pages, trying to get a solid answer on which GTX 980 / GTX 980 Ti's will fit in this case. I do plan on watercooling it, so the lower the height, the better, but I'm not ruling out the possibility of modding the panel to make it work.

Ideally, the less work on that side panel the better though...

I've had a few Nvidia graphics cards in my 240, and definitely any 980 / 980ti blower ones will fit, also EVGA ACX styles, Palit Jetstream / Super Jetstream are fine. Ones that definitely don't fit are MSI Gaming, Asus Strix and EVGA Classified / K|ngp|n.
Probably loads of others besides that others may be able to confirm, but essentially you have the height issue (will the side window be compromised / unable to close) and also the length of the card which is dictated by your front case fan / rad set-up. Push pull for example will mean some cards are impossible to fit.
Minefield... 😜

OK, cool. I'll check lengths. I'll be watercooling the card as well, so the size of the cooler is irrelevant really, it's the size of the PCB that concerns me. Front radiator will be a EK PE 240 with Corsair SP120 quiet edition in push, hoping length is a non-issue.

I've got a SLI rig, and would love to put in a custom loop, but never done one before. I'd read that one 240mm rad may be insufficient for CPU and SLI. Have you experience of this? Would be interested to see how it all works out and temps achieved... Photos would be cool too as it will be a squeeze in this case.
Enjoy and good luck.
