Im also planning to use the h1008 cpu cooler and hear alot about a push pull setup - how do i achieve that?

Thanks

Lutro0 is selling r9 290's for $200 bucks. Check the marketplace. Pretty sure they are fairly close to flush to the top of the PCI bracket and should fit lengthwise (unless I am mistaken)

CaptainZombie you need to start adding more content to the front page. For example, best setups for airflow, compatible gpus, best method to install certain components, what setup will work with what(eg h105 can only do push or pull with gigabyte gtx 970 g1). That sort of stuff. Also have visuals so people can see.

Hi Guys

Just joined to let people know that my video card wont fit in this case (sort of).

Card is:

asus gtx 680 directcu ii oc

The problem is the card cannot fit under the lip of the case where the pci slot is secured:





The only way I could get it in was to unscrew the motherboard from the case and then move it the ~10mm out from this edge, install the card, then slide the board back so the card could fit under this lip.

This means you cannot secure your motherboard with any screws covered by the card (3 x slots).

I am thinking about hacking the case to remove this lip.

Thought I should warn people.

Welcome to OCN and the Air 240 club! Also yes i think a couple of snips with a tin snip and you could fit the card better. Does the window at least fit on?

No, the power connections sit too high to put the window on, I see some of you are using right angle connections, can you tell me where I can get them?

My video card needs 1x8pin + 1x6pin connections

Hello

Have any1 tried fitting MSI 980 twin Forz V in the case?

I have seen some post were it can fit with a bit of snag of the window sidepanel (one of the heatpipe touching the panel)

Cheers
