After some further talk with a few 240 Owner's and Jameyscott we have decided to break out the Air 240 to it's own Owner's Club since the 240 has picked up some steam with owners and posts. The builds are getting lost in the main thread so it would be great to have just a club dedicated to discussion of the 240.

Hi,

nice, looking forward for only 240er Thread, good idea! I will begin then with my new build
smile.gif


System

- Intel Core I7-4770K
- EVGA Z87 Stinger
- Kingston Hyper Fury 16GB
- Samsung 830 Pro 128GB
- Corsair RM-750W (from old Case for SLI Build)
- Enermax Liqtech 240
- 6x Enermax Twister Cluster 120mm
- NZXT Grid+ internal Fan Control


All Fans runs with 400rpm now, Pump from Enermax also reduced in Speed and its cooling capazity is very good with low rpm fans, the radiator was build for that. And i wanted a very clean look, but a small size case with powerful hardware, now i found a case after all these years. But frankly,. i loved to see a version with 2cm more in every direction, so i could use Push/Pull in the front Section and without any problems a 4 Slots cooling Graphicscard at the bottom (Raijintek Morpheus). I really don't know, if this combi could work in here, have to try because it seems there would bee at least 2-3 clearance betweet bottom fans and fans on the morpheus.

GPU will hopefully coming soon, havn't found a nice buy yet. I will take some nice pictures, not a normal one like this, when iam done

And thank you very much for all the people from the 240/540 helping me with informations about size and what would fit in there!

Some very nice builds posted. I have the NZXT G10 coming this Wednesday so I'll be posting some pics of my setup once I have that all done. I wanted to go custom water cooling to start with the GPU, but was worried about costs.

So i just bought a air 240, h100i and 4 Noctura nf-f12 pwm, and now my question is, how shall i be placing the fans. 2 of the fans will be placed in a pull configuration on the h100i, but how shall i place the last fans, and are noctura nf-f12 pwm fans idle for this case, or would the p12´s be better?

No problem I can add that to the first post. I also have a Google spreadsheet in the first post for owners to fill out with their components.

Has anyone tested, or can someone test to see if the temps change when the case mounts horizontally and vertically.

All of this is to help in the betterment of the club.

Looks very nice and in no way is that overkill. I've got a MSI 970 with an i7 4790k for a Gaming HTPC. I'll be posting my build later tonight with the NZXT G10 in this case.

Guys, don't forget to fill out the Google Docs spreadsheet that I have in the first post as this is another good way for people to also see what kind of components are in your system. Thanks
