Seems to be hit or miss with the EVGA 1080 GTX FTW fitting inside of the Corsair 240. I had to bend the metal locking mechanism + remove the IO shield on the GPU and slide it in individually. I'm unable to fit the top back on even with my 8 pin connectors as flat as they will go. It's a good half inch too tall. I don't know how anyone managed to get their top back on.

Which brings up the next question. Does anyone know if they make some kind of low profile 8 pin connectors I can put in there?

I've seen them before but the ones I've seen are quite ugly

You know, I don't mind about appearance at this point. I would just like to get my case closed. Having things unfinished bugs me more than it being ugly. haha

You're amazing. I'll order two and let you know if it works. This could be that hair of space I need to seal my enclosure again.

I've overwatch-ed my Carbide 240 haha. I am using an Icy Vision rev.2 on my 780 Ti (kept the LED "Geforce GTX" logo)

Finally moved my setup from my full tower to the air 240 as it more than meets my needs. I had to get a gtx 1070 card because my Msi gtx 980 ti golden would not fit no matter what I did. Overall pretty happy with it , the tunes on the h100i gtx are stiff as hell I wrestled with them pretty much .overall temps are good system is quiet I really don't miss the airflow in my older full tower case so far I'm happy.
System specs

Corei7 4770k @ 4.6
Corsair h100i gtx push pull
Gigabyte gtx 1070 gaming
Gigabyte z97mx gaming
4x4gb gskill ddr3
Seasonic 860w platinum

Hey guys,

So I'm about to order all the parts to start a new build (Air 240 included of course). Before I do this, I had a couple of questions that have been brewing since reading through this thread:

1. I want to get the asus gtx 1070 strix and I understand the fitting is tight (due to the power connectors). Will a 90 degree adapter solve this issue? (like this one: http://www.moddiy.com/products/3.0mm-Pitch-6%252dPin-Mini-PCIe-Male-Header-Connector-%252d-90%25-Angled-%252d-Black.html)

2. Should I avoid buying a 3.5'' hdd? I'm planning on getting an EVO SSD for the boot drive and was planning on having the hdd for games etc. I've seen a couple of people suggesting that it's not a good idea due to it being placed behind the motherboard and generating too much heat. Could somebody confirm this and possibly suggest an alternative (fyi, I'd rather not get a 2nd SSD due to cost)?

Thanks in advance!
