Corsair Carbide Air 240 Owner's Club - Page 306

post #3051 of 3768
Hi,

I went with sapphire nitro+ rx 470 and these are it's dimensions: 240 X 120 X 42mm




As I could measure, there is about 8mm left till the window. So by sapphire standards the maximum gpu hight is around 128mm, maybe 130mm TOP.

So here are the pictures of my build as it sits. Today, I just installed a Puget Systems GPU brace for my 1080 FE being it was slightly sagging. Decided to take it a step further and install screws onto the 'tool less' mounting bracket and do a little dremeling.

My question since I have H100i with 4x Noctua NF-12 in push/pull configuration. I want to buy the EVGA 400-HY-5188-B1, but being it's a 120mm radiator I will want to do push/pull config on that too. Would an H80i and the hybrid EVGA cooler play nicely in the front of the case?

I had to put screws in as well to fix the sagging.. never tried a bracket though.

As far as two rads up front, I think they have to be staggered like in pic related

You guys think the EVGA power link will fit in this case? Might be what I need so that the pcie wires stop pushing against the window

Hi, I'm a new owner of an air 240 and I'm looking for a gtx 1060 that will in the case. I already tried the EVGA gtx 1060 non-sc but didn't like the card because it ran way too hot for my liking. I was thinking of getting this card: https://www.overclockers.co.uk/gigabyte-geforce-gtx-1060-g1-gaming-6144mb-gddr5-pci-express-graphics-card-gx-18f-gi.html as on the gigabyte site it says H=40 L=278 W=114 mm but just wanted to make sure it would fit. Maybe someone on this thread already has the card installed on their system so it would be great to know if it does indeed fit.

If its hight is 114 mm, it will fit easily. smile.gif

Hi guys, what's the best air cooler for the air 240?
post #3059 of 3768
Hey

I upgrade from a XFX Reference 480 8GB to a a XFX Radeon RX 480 GTR Black Edition

The Reference fit in just fine - easy install
The GTR had its issues.
The height is no problem, only for installation.
A little wiggle and it works.

The GTR is longer than the Reference but still fits good with a H100i V2 in single fan mode - push/pull setup might still be possible.

What I like most, is that the power cable now runs at the end of the card and not the middle.

Hello, I'm planning to buy MSI RX480 8GB, but my question now is, will it fit in the case? GPU height is 140mm(plus 8-pin connector, i think), but i'm little sceptic about it. So if anyone can tell me will, or will not fit?
