Hey, have anyone tried to mount 200mm radiator to the front of the case ? I'm thinking of migrating my build to smaller case and I'm not sure if I can fit 240mm long Phobya in. Could someone waste their precious time to measure the free space in the front for me please ?

s3rg1, If this what you meant.

Also installed 200mm bitfenix fan upfront. Had to remove some of the plastic clips from fan, because optical drive holder was in a way

My new Build Itx 1080 Ti build

Hi all, new to the forum but decided to post my new build thanks to all the great tips I found going through this thread to get all the right parts. I took some of the components like HDDs and RAM out of my older 450D ATX build and placed them into the new 250D. And voila! Love the compactness of it all.
I went with the MSI 1080 Ti for the color skim and because it fits perfectly in the case, just enough space for the fan blades to not touch the side panel dust filter and it's pretty quiet. With this setup I could even fit a 200mm front chassis fan without the metal grill.
During installation of the radiator I recommend screwing it to the upper holes as it will prevent the 120mm from pressing against the motherboard, I could actually use all the screw holes to fix the fans to the radiator but decided against screwing the bottom parts to make it easy to remove them without removing the board. I could easily swap them in the future if I decided to go with full RGB even if they are a little bit thicker. I also didn't have to remove the middle back plate supporting the bottom part of the radiator. I recommend placing the 120mm as outtake to suck the hot air out of the case, after some testing I gained about 10°C vs intake.
I'm using a Coolermaster 80mm silent fan to suck hot air in the back, much cheaper than the Noctua NF-A8s and it perform well without being noisy, also matched the overall color scheme. I'm getting a second one after making sure the first one performed well.

Overall it's been a fun experience making this build, most time spent finding the best ways to route the cables to make it nice and clean. I love that its so small and you can easily move it around and put it on top of your desk instead of under. Cheers.

Inside:
Intel i7 8700K
ASUS Z370-I Gaming
16GB G.skill TridentZ
MSI GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X
Coolermaster V850
NZXT X52 Kraken
1x Samsung 256GB SM961
1x Samsung 1000GB 850 EVO M.2
2x Seagate 3.5" 3000GB

Room temp without aircon around 23°C. GPU under load around 70°-72°C with the CPU hitting just below 60°C, GPU fans ramp up to around 60%-80%. Using MSI afterburner with custom fan curve and using NZXT CAM software in performance mode to regulate radiator and front chassis fans. You can hear the fans under load but it's still pretty quiet. Absolutely silent on idle, around 35-40°C for CPU & GPU.

New fans, I replaced the original fans from my h100i v2 with a new noctua NF-A12X25 PWM.

I managed to pick up a 250D for $30 so grabbed an Asus B450i Strix board and transplanting my system into the "D". 1600X, Asus B450i Strix, R9 Nano, EKWB SE120 + EKWB SE240, EKWB SPC 60MX pump with a longer res, Corsair RMi750, 1 x 1TB 3.5HDD and 1 x 2.5 1TB HDD.

Still have to plumb it all up and have a couple of Noctua 80mms and another XSPC RGB fan coming for the front of the rad to show thru the blowhole.

Its tight. I like tight.

Thanks for the tips and tricks to you all!

Just finished my new 250d build.

For anyone who is wondering the Asus 1080ti Strix does also fit into the 250d. You have to remove the shroud and reattach it inside the case, but it wasn't too complicated.

I am fairly certain that the RTX 2080/2080ti strix wont fit, as they are slightly thicker and there is only about 1-2mm of width left. Could maybe mod the side panel to make it work though!

This might be a duplicate question, but is there a list of GTX 1080 cards that fit the case. Im just about to upgrade from a MSI GTX 980.

I know there are specs on the case and cards but it seems there are exceptions to just going off the exact measurements.

I'm specifically looking at the following:

-MSI Gtx 1080 Gaming - Im pretty sure it fits and this is my first choice card
-Asus Gtx 1080 strix - confirmed above to fit!
-Gigabyte Gtx 1080 - I can seem to find anything on it

I'm building a 250D rig myself and my plan is to go with the EVGA RTX 2080 Ti XC (Not Ultra XC). I've checked the measurements and it should fit just fine. Sadly it seems like its the only 2080 ti card that will fit and its the ugliest.

Figured id post some pics of the work. The Asus GTX 1080 Strix just barely fit. My ram and the front fan had to come out. Cleaned up the cables quite a bit. Id love to get some proper sleeved cables but its just too much.

The card sits at 61 degrees while gaming at 1440p. It sits at 65 degrees while gaming on the 4k 75" tv it sits under. Great temps i think and the card is inaudible.
