Corsair Carbide Air 240 Owner's Club - Page 270

post #2691 of 3781
0ldchicken, sorry my bad, indeed if fan is included in the width, then it will fit without a doubt. I just worked on mine last night, I have a push pull on a h100i + 270mm gpu, that is a length of 350mm long, and it fits.

Dumpap, unfortunately it wont. The 980Ti though will fit, because the edge of the PCB is "shrinked" and power connectors don't need extra room on their 980ti version. However their PCB for the 1070/1080 doesn't have this smaller edge and power connectors will need extra room, as it is already 133-134mm high, then it can't fit :/

Hello, Im new here

My question is, should I buy the Gtx 1070 FE or wait for the custom designs? Cant wait biggrin.gif I Think the GTX 1070 gonna be too loud in my Corsair Air 240. Can someone with experience tell me how loud the 1070 FE gets in a case and what the max. temperature for this card is, thanks.

These reference coolers are not loud. There are plenty of reviews that prove this.
I have the 980 ref, and no problems. The 1070's reference cooler is more or less the same, while the power consumption and therefore the temperatures are lower. These usually let the card reach 80°C, but that wont matter, since it exhausts all the heat to the rear.

In my ongoing quest to get my Air 240 airflow optimised (while waiting for some 1070 releases and proof about which will fit) I just came across an interesting old article on Silent PC Review http://www.silentpcreview.com/article1430-page9.html

Has anyone experimented with removing dust filters and GPU temps? You can read about my setup on page 259 of this thread. Away from home for a while so still havent had a chance to reverse my fans (switch to top intake and front AIO exhaust) but thought this info might be handy to share.

Hoping Strix 1070 will fit... prefer the old EVGA ACX cooler look, but if Strix doesnt fit i might have to go with EVGA ACX 1070. Might be able to afford 1440p upgrade soon by giving GTX 1080 a miss (seems 1080 is for 4K and i would prefer 1440p with higher FPS).

I used to use dust filters, then I thought about how much effort I put in to get a few degrees temp drop and I pretty much always go without now. I haven't recorded a before and after but it made a difference. When I got my air 240 I immediately removed the plastic "filters". Things get dusty a bit quicker but nothing a quick blast of canned air/datavac can't fix.

Will the GTX 1070 Gainward Phoenix fit? It's 133mm
post #2697 of 3781
So, I got my 240 in the other day, and started transplanting all my parts. Get to my video card, and Asus GTX 780 DirectCU II, and... It won't fit. Quite a bit too tall. Ended up just grabbing an EVGA GTX 780TI with the ACX cooler, which is much shorter. Selling my 780 so the out of pocket cost isn't too bad, and it will hold me over until later in the year when I upgrade to (more than likely) a 1070.

@thedumpap - Looking at images, I highly doubt that card will fit.

About to be joining the club, had a couple questions... Ordering Asrock Z170M Extreme 4, 6700k, Team Group DDR4. Recycling my MSI 980Ti Gaming, which from what I have seen is too wide to fit in the case, but I also ordered a Kraken G10 w/ a H55. Will I have any issues with the msi card without its original heatsink? Probably grabbing a H100iV2 for my CPU, instead of re-using my H70. Planning on using Corsair SP120s on the AIOs.

Was considering the Thermaltake Core V21 if the Air 240 won't do the job. Don't want to pull the trigger on the case just yet without asking a few questions.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Hi rjeftw,

Be careful with rads. With mATX motherboards you may only fit 1x240 or 2x120 in the front. The top and the bottom will not have enough clearance for rads + fans.

The only place where you can fit a 120mm rad with already a 240mm in there, is in the other compartiment. And the only way to place it there without modding the case is to make the tubes go through the wall before you mount the WB on the gpu

Alternatively, you can go for a simple 120mm rad for the cpu, and mount the 2 rads + fans on the front. One in push/pull, the other one in push.

What if i would cool a 1070 like gpu, by full cover block, and a 2x80mm radiator behind the cpu?
Do you guys think it could be good enough, so that the fans also dont need to be too loud?
