Corsair Carbide Air 240 Owner's Club - Page 304

post #3031 of 3767
Ah, cool. Thanks for the clarification! Build looks awesome btw.
post #3032 of 3767
Thanks... Here is a better pic incase anyone is wondering how I crammed everything in.

Original Build w/ GTX 970

Totally forgot to post pictures of the 1080 FE installed.



I'll get more pictures since I've changed some more things around. As this only shows the Zotec 1080 FE installed. I have removed the Noctua NF-12 from below the graphics card and replaced the Corsair H100i push fans with dual Noctua NF-12. Plus I've also installed an NZXT Hue+ LED system which is awesome. Even though the CUE software sucks requiring authentication every boot and forget about updating the software as that always fails.

Finally got my hybrid cooler today from newegg ( 400-HY-5188-B1 ) and managed to fit it through the bottom cable hole without too much frustration. I had to remove the plastic cap which snaps out and snaps back in place so no tools required. The block with the cap on measures a tiny bit over 1 inch and less than 1 inch with the cap off. I'm getting the EVGA 1070 SC tomorrow and ill see what this puppy can do. Check out some pics.

Hi everybody!

I'm going to purchase the new Aquacool Eisbaer 240, do you believe the radiator (125 mm x 278 mm x 30 mm) will fit the front panel?

Quick update on my setup

I managed to install the cooler on my evga gtx 1070 SC. The wire going to the radiator fine is sooo short at least for my use case that it was a bit of a pain to keep it plugged in.
Thanks everyone for the help, I'm pretty excited about my setup now and cant wait to fire up some games (BTW 45C under furmark for 30 min ... insane)
Also the LED on the side is not RGB... I know this question came up before. Its just white and you can apply the usual lighting effects.

As an alternative you can also buy the 1070/1080 hybrid cooling kit which would work with a reference evga model.

My specs you ask? Here you go!

Case: Need you ask?
Cooler: Corsair H100i V2
CPU: i5-6600k
Mobo: ASUS Maximus VIII Gene
RAM: 16Gb Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4 ROG edition @3200Mhz
GPU: EVGA GTX 1070 FTW <---- I've seen someone fit a 1080ftw which is 150mm...Without case mods! I also think with the upcoming EVGA Power Link this will fit even better.
PSU: HX750i
SSD: Intel 750 1.2tb PCIe

A hopefully near quiet build, as both the GPU and PSU turn off the fans when not needed and I'm using SP120 Quiet edition fans on the cooler. smile.gif


Curious if you were able to get your FTW to fit?
post #3039 of 3767
Alright guys, after a few complications everything's arrived...Wish me luck! Also, I am so in love with the 240...!

In short, yes. In long, it took like 20mins of jogging and pulling back the stupid clamp which by the way is kinda weak on this card because its a biggie. Also there is a little more flexing on the window than id like but I can live with it until the power link comes out and I also have a 1070 ftw so...win? XD
post #3040 of 3767
The 1070 and 1080 FTW fit. Just need low profile pcie cables. Ebay has 8pin ones
