1. Then why don't you try taking your RX480 down there? See if it fits with the bottom of the case?

2. It indeed might not fit because of your motherboard configuration. On most mATX boards, the 2nd PCI 3.0 is higher (or at least for mine, m7g)

You will have to cut one more slot open there.
The Air 240 normally only allows dual gpu configs, with no free slot between them.

Hello!

I finished my first custom watercooling cycle a few days ago! It is of course inside of my precious Corsair Carbide Air 240!





That's inside:

Intel Core i7 4770K
MSI Z97M Gaming
4x Kingston HyperX FURY 4GB 1866MHz DDR3 CL10
Gigybyte Radeon R9 Nano
2x Samsung 850 Evo 250GB
Corsair Professional Series HX850i 850W

If you have any questions or want more pictures (these two are bad because I was too lazy to get my camera) feel free too ask.

Ok everyone. I know there has been alot of speculation about weather or not the aftermarket 1080 boards would fit in an air 240 due to width constrictions...

I have just recieved and installed my ASUS ROG Strix 1080 and have verified it does fit.... BUT there are some issues...

1. The Left side of the PCB near the mounting bracket is too wide to fit in naturally. Unfortunately, you will have to make some mild case modifications to get it to fit. I took a pair of pliers and bent the left side vertical support and was able to get the board to squeeze in.

2. I dont think this case could support this board and a HB Bridge, it may even have trouble with your motherboard bridge. The SLI connection sits very close to the window. Thats not to say you cant buy a smaller card like a EVGA 1080 SC or a founders editions..

3. Final issue is power cords do apply pressure against the window. There is a slight bulge at the bottom of the side panel. This could be fixed with a 90 degree 6pin and 8pin adapater (if thats a thing). This also may be fixed by aftermarket sleeved cables, as my EVGA G2 cables are kinda thick and do not flex well. '

Here are some pictures of the installation (out of order, sorry)


MB= Asus ROG maximus gene viii
CPU= 6700k (OC to 4.8k stable)
Cooler= Corsair H100i
Ram= Corsair Vengeance 4x 8gb
Videocard= Asus ROG Strix 1080 OC edition
Fans - Radiator = Noctua NF-F12 PWM redux 3000rpm (I never turn these up that high as it gets around 60 decibels, but its kinda nice having low theoretical temps with burn tests)
- Top = COUGAR CF-V12HB Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing
- Rear = Noctua NF-R8 redux-1800 PWM SSO Bearing Fan (x2)
Storage = WD Black 1TB
= Samsung Pro 951 M.2 512gb
