Corsair Carbide Air 240 Owner's Club - Page 286

post #2851 of 3774
well I changed over to my new carbide 240 white on the weekend, VERY happy with it so far... seriously what a great case smile.gif

shoehorned my new H100i GTX in it too as my old Noctua wouldn't fit... looks great, now I'm keen to add some white led strips to really make it pop... anyone got any recommendations?

I think I may have wrote that by mistake earlier, I mounted 2x80 arctic F8, not 2x92 arctic F9.

Just saying if you were thinking of my post ^^

Cscheat, what is the thickness of your radiator in front?
If 30mm (h100 series) then you got 280mm maximum
If 35mm (h105) then you got 275mm max.

But of you "sacrifice" a fan on the lower slot of the radiator, then you can mount a gpu that is until 305mm, meaning the 1070/1080 gigabyte g1 / asus strix can fit for example wink.gif

Interested in getting my first diy PC, and would like to get this case. Will it be easy for first time builders?

Its easy, but mostly depends on the components you buy for it. Just be careful with the outside painting, and the window. They are especially sensitive.

Might paint my air 240 two tone soon. Just went from a z77 matx to a x99 itx. Still need to add some fans to the top and bottom. Flat PSU cables work great in this case to route all cables behind the motherboard

So im building my new Computer right now. I got a question with the Fan directions. Actually i built it like on picture 1, but so i have no intake, just exhaust.

Do you guys think i can build it like picture 2, with the fans on the radiator as intake? My CPU Cooler is the Corsair H100i v2.

Picture 2

You may want to set up like Pic#2, seeing as you have no intake, and that would give you radiator cool intake.
