Corsair Carbide Air 240 Owner's Club - Page 274

post #2731 of 3774
Hey guys,

I had gigabyte take a physical card and measure it (Gigabyte 1080 Xtreme)

H = 57mm (including the “ X” shape brace height on the card.
L = 290mm\
W = 123mm (including the extra upper portion of the GPU heatsink and the “Xtreme Gaming LED display on the card)

Will this fit in the case?

If its really 123mm wide, it would fit. But i have my doubts, that it has been measured correctly... seems much higher than that.

Guys I just made measurements on 4 cards and found out that indeed as locutus says, they mustn't have measured correctly. It is too tall.

Instead of measuring the whole card, I just measure the distance between the top of the PCI bracket and the top of the card on straight photos, and then measure ratios to get the real values. This way we have a reliable scale with of course, a small incertitude.



A PCI bracket height is 120mm. Meaning the distance from top of the card to top of the bracket is:
- 2,88cm for the Gigabyte Xtreme Gaming
- 0,96cm for the EVGA Superclocked (+ cables)
- 2,33cm for the EVGA FTW (+ cables)
- 2,48cm for the Asus Strix



And I also measured maximum height in our Air 240 case, that is 3,0cm - 0,5cm of glass = 2,5cm
As the measurement for the strix was confirmed by Soprohero who made his 1080 strix fit in the case, I assume we can say with 99% certitude that the others are correct.



I am working on a full dimensions list for 1070/1080 cards and will post it as soon as it's finished, This way we may have a sort of bible for what GPUs really fit smile.gif


EDIT: Maybe Soprohero can measure the real distance on his Strix so we can compare with my estimation !

Will be doing a GTX 1080 SLI/X99 build with the Air 240 in the next 1-2 weeks.

Looking forward to joining the club! My Air 540 has treated me well. redface.gif

I don't have an m.2 ssd. Just an 850 evo in the back compartment which stays at about 40'C. The rest of the temps have been the same as when I had the FE in here actually. In the CAM software it has 5 temperature probes showing on the motherboard section and none of those get above 50'C. Usually hovers around 30'C for the most part. I have an i7 6700k which is overclocked to 4.5Ghz and that has maxed at 55'C so far.

On vacation this weekend but I'll measure the distance from the top of the card to the top of the io plate when I get back on Monday.

Also to note, that this card is a perfect fit now that I think about it more. Another 2-3mm and the pci-E holder clip on the side would not have been able to close completely. Not the biggest deal and that prob could be modded tho I guess. Also I adjusted how I had the power connectors hooked up and now it looks much neater and the panel closes a lot better now to. I still reccomend flatter more flexy connectors tho if you really want zero push back on the panel, but as of right now I'm pretty satisfied with the fit.

Are you going blower style 1080 to keep the cooling with SLI in check? Or other plans for that?

Hi Soprohero, were you able to measure the distance? My Gigabyte Xtreme is arriving tomorrow and there's no way I'm opening the box unless I know it's going to fit (Newegg return policy is pretty strict).

I asked gigabyte's technical support for the same measurement of the XTREME card (the distance between the two red lines).

Sorry to learn you already bought it mate, but I definetely wouldn't open the box if you can't return it then! Don't take the risk...

I calculated 28.8mm, the maximum being 25.0mm (measured last weekend on my case)
post #2740 of 3774
I'm confused the 1080 ftw is down here as a no fit but the bigger strix fits? Can anyone clarify please.
