EVGA is about to release the Power Link adapter, a 90° part you plug in the power connectors and redirects on the side of the card. It should measure approx 1,1cm high.

Thanks, I already saw this in some Computex coverage, however, I would have to discard the ASUS Strix due to its power connectors, leading to the EVGA GTX 1080 Superclocked (or FTW?) as alternatives thinking.gif

FTW unfortunately won't fit frown.gif

The SC is however indeed the sweet spot for us, especially for those who use push pull rad in the front ^^

For summarizing a bit, those 1070s/1080s will fit :

- Inno3D iChill X3
- Inno3D iChill X4
- Evga SC
- Asus Strix
- Gigabyte G1
- MSI Sea Hawk

Those ones won't fit :
- Evga Hybrid
- Evga FTW
- Evga Classified
- MSI Gaming X
- MSI Armor X
- Palit Super Jetstream
- Gainward Phoenix

I do prefer cards with the plugs on the end.

Did you have problems with the holding bracket at the top? And my second concern is the water cooler tubing...you seem to have the Corsair Hydro 100i GTX as well, right?

By the way, concerning the power connectors, isn't there anything like a "right-angle adapter" we could use?

I have the h100i v2. Not sure what the differences are between that and the GTX version tho.

Not really a problem with the holding bracket, just a tight fit and u need to wiggle the gpu around a bit to get it down in the right place. But once it's in, it fits perfectly and doesn't obstruct anything.

Just the single 120mm as exhaust on the top. The rest seems to trickle out on its own in the rear a bit.

With some slight overclocking, I am getting 75'C at 75% fan speed underload.

Considering putting 2 fans at the bottom as intake facing the gpu, any idea of how much of an impact that will have on temps?

How does it get to the exhaust fan on the other side? There is no room above, and almost also none in front of the gpu...

Will the gigabyte gtx 1070 gaming 1 fit in a 240 with a h100i v2 at the front? Wanting to preorder but afraid I won't be able to get it cleared inside.

It will fit if you stick with push OR pull configuration, and it will be a tight fit : 300 + 30 + 25 is 355mm length needed, meaning you will have approx 5mm clearance between the g1 and the radiator... (or the fan)

Edit: With such few space, I would place a fan on the gpu side, radiator on the front side.

I never meant that it goes to the rear compartment where the psu/storage/and cables are. The heat just goes through the single 120mm on the right side of the pic I took. And it naturally seems to be trickling out from the back from where the 80mm fans could go, but I dont want them. I could fit another 120mm up top, but I would need to remove the harddrive cage and pass the CPU power cable through the hole there, then I can get a second fan up there.

Edit: Also I don't usually keep the case laid flat horizontally, it's usually vertical. I just took a pic of how I had it when I finished assembly. But I kind of like the look if it being horizontal, but gonna look at it for a bit and see what orientation I like better.

Edit 2: Ok I think I get what you were trying to say now, my b. The heat must find its way from the front and the side of the card between the radiator I guess. Because when I put my hand on where I have the exhaust, I am def feeling the hot air, as well as hot air on the back. I agree it's not much room, but it's working fine. I had the 1080 FE in this build before I got the Strix, and the strix is running cooler and quieter so no complaints here.
