Corsair Carbide Air 240 Owner's Club - Page 51

This case is bad bad bad.
It made me buy a gtx 980 especially for him because my 780 ti does not fit.
It looked at me and made me do it instead of returning it.
Bad case, case is bad.

Now only if the gpu was not delivered at my neighbour who is not home atm i could start building this pretty thing..

Yea, sapphire Tri-X R9 290 will fit if that's what you ask.

Thanks Joseph! The case defiantly made it easier than it could have been to fit it all in. Haha, I'm one of the weird few who quite like the unique contrast of the original Noctuas.

My reasons for posting are that I feel particularly proud of this one (especially the cable work....and believe me, there was a lot of it!), and because of all the amazing builds posted here inspiring me to me to join in with the fun!! The only thing left I'd like to sort out is the braiding. I've got some cable combs on their way to organise them into an orderly fashion!

The case was placed on my hallway carpet for the purpose of taking photos only. Normally it's raised from the carpet by a hard plastic board giving the bottom fans room to breathe!


Specs

CPU - Intel i7-4790k
GPU - EVGA GTX 980 4GB SC with Backplate
RAM - Mushkin Blackline 2x8GB DDR3 2133Mhz RAM
MOBO - Asus Z87I-PRO mITX
PSU - Corsair RM650 80+ Gold with CableMods braided cables

SSD - Samsung 840 EVO 250GB
SSHD - Seagate 1TB 2.5" 5400rpm

Cooler - Corsair H100i AiO
x2 Noctua 80mm (Exhaust)
x8 Noctua 12mm (x1 Exhaust, 7 Intake)
- All of the fans are PWM controlled -

Overall positive pressure has kept the inside very nearly dust free with me having to vacuum the outside of the case (both front and bottom) about every 1 to 2 months. I've only had to give the inside a couple of sprays of compressed air once since November....and even that was me being fussy.


Temps during March in London

Idle (Fans barely audible)
CPU 21c
GPU - 29c (Zero RPM Mode until GPU hits 60c)

Gaming
CPU - 47c
GPU - 63c


Critiques welcome. Feel free to ask me anything about the build.

Thanks for looking!!!

Dude...i share your vision with those Noctua...pitty that all mainboard producers deploy like idiots same color schemes and the real entusiast (not all the red black crowds) are very limited in choice of color scheme when they want to have fully loaded gaming rig... smile.gif

It would definitely be nice to have more mobo colour options. Something along the lines of a fully black or white one with changeable colour accents on the heat sinks. Yea....that'll do just nicely
