Corsair Carbide Air 240 Owner's Club - Page 293

From the reading I've it done it sounds like there's a consensus that the EVGA 1070 SC fits with the panel put on, is that correct? I was lucky enough to catch this problem and cancel my FTW order before it shipped.

Yeah basically the FTW is about a mm or two away from the side panel and so the power cables won't fit with the side panel on. Someone did sort of manage to get it to fit but it wasn't pretty. The SC is a much better choice, a little cheaper, and reaches the same speed basically.

Awesome. That's what I figured from reading but this is a huge thread. Best Buy has the SC instock for the same price as Newegg and $5 more than Amazon.

As far as I know right side (4 of them) gets air inside , and top 2 pushes it out
So right 4 intake - top 2 exhaust
Correct me if I'm wrong

Correct. H105 in front in push/pull is sucking air in, with the top two as exhaust. This is how it is recommended as it's the only place a 240mm radiator can fit in this case.

Yes, here is Corsair's recommendation:



But that illustration above by Corsair is flawed, isn't it?

This is what's really going on:

Yeah that is true, but as seen here, it's only a couple of degrees at worst. Not really something to be too concerned about.

The above answers are correct.

Exhausting heat out the top makes the most sense, so the front fans are intake. Holding my hand on the inside of the case while running a benchmark, the intakes still bring in cool air. It's likely only a couple of degrees difference at most.
