the only solution from my pov is to buy Gryphon with the cover plate and paint it with custom color to look better then current mobos... anyway..im curious about the noise of all those fans..i know Noctua is uber in silence but which fans did you used on all those positions? Are the 120mm all same? Video would be great to see how is the noise in full load biggrin.gif

I saw a build thread somewhere where they'd used white plastidip to coat the motherboard, it didn't sound like a great solution to the colour coding problem to me with the potential for heat damage but in this instance it seemed to work and it certainly gave it an impressive cosmetic finish...

That's not a bad idea. I wonder if ASUS will ever release an m-itx version....one can dream. All the 120s are NF-F12s and the 80s are Rf-R8s. I may do one in the future! Not sure about full load but I'll let you know that playing BF4 with every setting cranked up doesn't even raise the temps enough to have the fans ramp up. The only change is that the GPU fans start spinning; I haven't seen them raise above 20% though (which hasn't been enough for me to even hear them). So essentially the noise when gaming is the same as when idle.

Would a gigabyte Gtx 980 gaming g1 fit in the air 240?

Yep will do. Just as long as you haven't got a front rad in push pull you'll be fine

It's only a 120mm radiator.

If your rad is at the front of the case then keep it in the upper fan slot and it'll be all good

The measurements are available on gigabytes website. It's a long card. It's 45mm longer than my evga 980 which after measuring it now, will not even allow for a normal 25mm thickness rad with 1 fan. Your only option would be to have the rad in the upper front fan slot or somewhere at the top.
