You're welcome! Yeah, with these boards on the decline its a bummer.
That is true. There was way more activity years ago. I've been off this for a while due to work schedules. I've switched cases 3 times in the last year and finally decided on this one when I realised the air 240 was hard to find. While I like the 280X, the 240 was my first choice.

The GPU was a tight fit. So very tight fit that I'll definitely add two more fans at the bottom to help it cope with the air blowing directly at the case window. Maybe one more at the top, but I'll check if it'll actually make it (flow) worse for the CPU cooler, I don't know... Maybe. Or maybe, even add all the coolers and two 40mm or something like that at the rear, looks like the case already support it, so it could help with the flow, moving more ar into the CPU cooler... Maybe... I don't know. Choices... Science, it's so hard.

I currently have one at the top and two at the front. Didn't test temps yet, but it's performing alright and I don't think the hot air coming from the top is that hot after a few hours of use, but I'll (also) definitely install afterburner and do some (past due) testing.
  • Gigabyte B450 something
  • Ryzen 2700X (stock cooler)
  • 16 GB 3200mhz
  • RX 5700 XT
  • 1 TB NVME XPG something
I F'n love this case. it's so versatile for it's size.

PS: lots of reflexes on the photos, please don't mind them. (Unless you see me naekeed :)

Hey fellow Corsair Air 240 owners!!!

I know this is a long shot, but I was wondering if anybody is willing to sell their GPU fastening/securing plate (not sure what to call it); Please see the attached pictures. I'm willing to pay $10 for this! Or does anybody know where I can find a replacement?

I would really really appreciate this sediment!


Please respond or PM me at your earliest convenience!!! Thank you :)
