Looks like a good card, 12+2 phases. If the dimensions are correct, especially the height, then it might fit. But there is too few information yet to confirm it.

124mm in height will definetely fit, you have around 135mm height clearance. However I am unable to say how much space do the tubes need, it might push against the window depending on how flexible they are.

264mm in length seems very small, too small imho ^^ the g1 is 300mm, on the pictures the waterforce doesnt look that short (my superclocked is 267cm, that is already super short...)
If it really is 264mm long, then you will have enough space for 2 fans + radiator in front.

But I would wait for more info or more opinions to be sure ^^

First, thank you to the posters for all the information provided in this Owner's Club thread! This thread has been an invaluable source while trying to figure out the optimal setup for my new gaming rig.

While selecting a graphics card I stumbled on the width/height issue. As it seems the maximum clearance for graphics card in Air 240 is ~135mm. Here in Finland, Asus is the most widely available manufacturer so I compiled a compatibility list for Asus' NVIDIA cards. Based on the information only the ASUS STRIX-GTX970 models are definitely incompatible. The ASUS STRIX-GTX980-DC2OC-4GD5 should fit but there is at least one report it not fitting so I've marked it as unsure (Corsair forum post with pics).

There is of course the issue with PCIe power connectors and cables. These should not be a problem since the wider STRIX cards have recessed connectors and you can always use for all the cards an angled connector like the following from Moddiy.com (6Pin, 8Pin)

Thank you for the list! I also figured out the height of 134mm for the ASUS STRIX GTX 1070 OC. Like you already said the only problem could be the connectors. I will just go ahead and buy this card as soon as possible when its available in the shops again. I will share some photos with you guys, since i think this is a great thread which helped me a lot.

I use 7x riings 120mm PWM and 2x arctic F9 92mm

4x riings in front as intake on the h100i and 2 on top as exhaust. Cant say the exact rpms as they are synchronized in 2 groups of 3:
- 1st group is 1 Push + 1 pull + 1 top exhaust synchronized on cpu temperature
- 2nd group is 1 Push + 1 pull + the other top exhaust also synchronized on cpu temperature. They are running between 60% (quiet, approx 1100rpm) to 75% in load (approx 1200rpm). Cpu tops at ~55°C (delta T ~25°).

The bottom riing is running at around 1100rpm, on the rear slot, pushing some air on the bracket side of the gpu. I would like to add a 2nd one on the bottom, but connectors on the mobo are a problem ^^ I purchased some 90° pin adaptors, it is fine for the front panel connectors, but another connector with double rank pins blocks me...

Rear arctic F9s are running at ~55%, cant say the rpms ^^

And pump in performance mode all the time, ~2800rpm.

What about yours?

-

I run basically all of my fans between 800 and 1200 RPM. Based mostly on CPU temp with PWM.
Since i have a reference 980, the temperature of that doesnt matter for anything else. This is why i am curious, what additional temperature a custom cooled gpu causes on all other comonents. Especially on an M.2 ssd below the GPU, or the CPU, MB, PCH etc.

Hello!
I just received my GIGABYTE GTX 1070 GAMING G1 today, and I love it.
Ran heaven benchmark and the highest temperature it got was 77 degrees, but staying mostly at 75.

What can be done to improve the temperatures of the GPU? (CPU is doing fine).



Got one front intake at the bottom. What should be done?

Ok.

I will check tonight my motherboard temperature rolleyes.gif

No M2 yet, but thinking about adding one somewhere. Still figuring out what I can do with that mPCIe port up there. Any idea?
Any way I can use that mPCIe slot for a wifi module to free the PCIe 2.0 below the GPU?

I'm thinking I should just put 2 front intake fans, a bottom exhaust fan (under GPU), and that should do it - right?

No. Bottom exhaust is general not a good idea, since heat is going upwards. Or make it rear exhaust behind the CPU with 2x80mm.

What about the GPU then? It shouldnt have any cooling?

You can add fans on the bottom and take out the mesh for maximum fresh air flow on the gpu.

If your case is standing window up then you can put exhaust/intake fans almost as you want
If your case is standing in its normal position, then like Locculus said, bottom must always be intake, and top exhaust.

Rear and front can theoritically be setup as you wish, but I would recommend the front as intake as you have bigger spots than rear (positive pressure easier) and because the lower front fan can blow air directly on the gpu.
