None of those included seem to fit and i've not got any spares that seem to work either.
Just wanting to hold the GFX card a bit more firmly in its place.

I don't think a screw is suppoed to be there!

One of the negative aspects of the Air 240 is the pci clasp. Should have just stuck with the traditional screws.

Screws, no, a bolt and nut, yes.

I think it is a good idea and holds my GPU firmly in place, no need for any screws.

Hey guys, just buying my motherboard, and then I'll be ready to build! Would I be able to have an SLI configuration with the ASUS Z97m-Plus motherboard? The second PCI slot seems a little low for sli in the air 240
post #797 of 3774
Im not sure that specific motherboard supports sli.

But sli isn't a problem in this case.

I think the clasp is a great idea personally. I'd just like to have the option to screw in the PCI cards as an extra level of support for them, especially if the case will be getting moved around. Putting in hole that no screw can fit seems a bit random, i'll be looking for a suitable nut & bolt.

On another front entirely I must say though I am absolutely loving building in this case though! The split compartment design lets you build such a neat & tidy main compartment it really makes the parts of the build you see from outside have a professional feel to them.
Got myself some black Bitfenix ATX extension cables in various types and have been able to keep the cabling to the bare minimum in there, you can barely see them now. The other side is a bit messy but can't be seen and with the included ties and also removable HDD & SDD cages there's loads of potential for tidying it up.

Hi,

I havent gone through all the posts on this thread but was wondering if anyone is doing dual clear side panels on this case? I was thinking of ordering an extra one and making a hole for the power supply fan, or modify it somehow to get airflow to the psu.

Build is finally done! I want to work on the cable management and get some nicer cablemod cables, but I'm happy with how it turned out.
