Corsair Carbide Air 240 Owner's Club - Page 273

post #2721 of 3774
Hi everyone. Now that specs have been released, I'm having a horrible time trying to figure out if the Gigabyte GTX 1080 Xtreme will fit in this case.

The card size, according to the official product page is:
H=55 L=295 W=111 mm

(see: http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=5920#sp)

Would it fit? I can't find the GPU HxLxW maximums anywhere for the air240.

You should be totally fine unless you've got a massive rad and/or fans in push pull.
I ran a Windforce 970 (L=297 W=114 mm) and 980 Xtreme (L=287 W=134) in there together with an H105 (38mm+25mm for the fan)

Your total clearance is 360mm for card + clearance + cooling
Width is about 134mm.. but power connectors could be an issue

Here's my old setup with the 980Ti / H105

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.

And how are your other temps, for things that are beside the gpu? Do you have an m.2 ssd under it, for example? Or the PCH temp, or the CPU temp?

Yup, I ran the latter setup as well (980 Ti Xtreme Gaming with H100i GTX) and I can confirm that it fits, while the power connectors needed to be bent quite a bit and touched the side/top panel of the case.

However, I can't believe the specs for the new GTX 1080 Xtreme - the width just doesn't make sense (the middle top section even seems "higher" than before)!

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've got an EVGA Micro 2 mobo and really wanted the EVGA 1080 FTW, but have opted for the SC to be safe. Has anyone tried the FTW? Would the new 90degree connector not help or is it a lost cause?
I'm a **** and really want that damn RGB lighting and am gutted they've increased the card height...

Yes it's a shame ftw is now much taller. It is supposed to be 129mm high, even with the evga power link, it would be 140.0 mm, and we already know the limit with power connectors that is approx 133-134mm (that still touches the glass)

I wouldn't even bother ^^

You can still mod the glass or change the case though smile.gif if you really want the ftw.

Does anyone like the design on the ACX 3 cooler? I think it looks cheap and horrible, I was going with EVGA for my gpu upgrade but not the ACX 3 design, wish we could have ACX 2 back.

Thanks for confirming - really appreciate that.
Don't particularly fancy modding the case TBH, hence why I went for the SC... Back ordered with OCUK and was due in today, but now shelved till next Friday.
Sticking with a trusty 970 for now... 😁

I LOVE the ACX 3.0 design tongue.gif

Actually the only reason why I am not buying a 980Ti FTW instead...

Perf-wise, do you think a 980Ti FTW OCed is able to tickle a 1070 SC OCed ?

Fair dos! I am amazed how the founders edition is cheaper than the third party editions...

Seeing the 1070 stock is quicker than a titan x I wouldnt of thought that a 980ti OC could tickle or beat a 1070 OC but I guess it depends on the level of OC.
