The air 240 is a mATX case?

A mATX board would only allow 15mm fans in the air 240.

Just a guess but probably that as its a Z87 board wink.gif

Great looking build btw, very clean

So you can use a mATX board in the air 240?
I'm planning a HTPC build with the board in my sig rig and I had the Phenom M in my sight,but if I can use the corsair 240,that will lead to a whole other ball game

A little difficult to show how the light are on these. They are quite nice thumb.gif






Can't seem to get that red light on the Rampage IV gene to disappear. It would look better without it.



I like the look with the two "Nvidia Titan" coolers on the cards.

And just be clear; Even though the MSI GTX 970 is a reference GTX 980 PCB, that does not mean it has the connector for the light on the cooler. I had to solder a connector on. But it works just fine.

Temperatures for the GFXs after som Crysis gaming was ~79C for GPU1 and ~75C for GPU2.
I could not get a clear core clock from afterburner unless the cards had under clocked them self to 540 mhz?
The fan RPM was ~2200 for GPU1 and ~1800 for GPU2. Which is a bit difference compared to GPU2 was also cooler.

I believe the GPU2 is the "lower" GFX in the case, which is the card where I have installed bought the cooler and therefore applied new thermal paste (Antec formula 7). So that may be the reason. I will later take the cooler of the "whisper quite" GTX 970 edition and apply some new paste. If that doesn't make a change I will try to switch the two GFX around and see if it is the possition in the case that has such a high impact on temperature and fan RPM.

The Noctua S12A below the GFXs was spinning at ~900 rpm.

The cost of the case is around 130 dollars (remember we have some higher taxes here in DK):
Materials: 30 dollars
Laser cutting: 30 dollars
Parvum modding cubes: 25 dollars (shipped)
Fan filters: 15 dollars
Push-bottons and feet: 30 dollars

Overall I'm very happy with the result.
If you want to build it your self, the 2D drawings is uploaded here:
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/gvfatib8gnjq06y/AAAVMfSu81-KovTgAdLkWuCMa?dl=0
Just remember that the files are made for a 6mm material!

Wow! Stunning build thumb.gif
Cable management must have been a pain, but you did a good job.

A few comments / questions if you don't mind?
I wonder if tweaking the the case's air flow would help you at all.
The way it sits, it looks to be at a negative pressure (more air leaving than entering).
Perhaps removing the two fans at the top would actually help the cooling capacity of case, as it would now be under a positive pressure.
Also, adding some vents at the top in between the GPU's might encourage bottom-to-top airflow and help cool the backplates.
Right now I imagine a lot of hot stagnant air hanging out between the two GPU's.

Thanks dude! No no, ask away smile.gif. Was a mixture of both reusing (board was in a bitfenix phenom m-itx case) and choice. I'm not that interested in going the sli/crossfire route, and I wasn't planning on utilising a second pcie for anything seeing as I have an external DAC and the board has decent ac wifi built in. Also wanted the bottom free for extra GPU cooling to keep the noise down. In some games the GPU fans don't even spin as temps are kept sub 60c! Any more questions please don't hesitate to ask!
