Corsair Carbide Air 240

Finally today I put everything inside the AIR 240 that is in my room from well too much. With 780 I had the issue that wasn't compatible due to the height of the card, but now with the 980G1 is all good. Despite the full set of pictures, it's still not ended because I have to add few fans but..not today Put inside the 980G1 with a rad on front is like play to tetris

I decided to create another thread because the other one was too messy with wrong pics..it's locked now

Specs:
Intel i7-5820K
Gigabyte X99M Gaming 5
Gigabyte GTX980 G1
Corsair 4x4 2800 LPX
Corsair H100i + 2x EKWB Vardar 120ER
Samsung XP941 + Crucial M500

EKWB Vardar are a good surprise, back in the years I had few GT and honestly the Vardar are much better. The "ER" models (Extended Range) are even better since the duty cycle is from 25 to 100%, while on not-ER is from 40 to 100. So, basically, despite the max rpm is set to 2200rpm they can be very silent. This is my profile on my mobo..yes quite aggressive but also very silent in daily usage (working).

Very nice pictures Luca! I see you've also been working on your build over the week-end?

Thanks Marc
Yes, few hours on Saturday. Honestly I'm not sure that I need more fans, temps are quite good even during gaming. Maybe maybe 2 slim on top, that's it.

In my opinion, you need fans on the top, to cool the VGA.

Yep same idea but honestly I do 70-75C on 980 that is more than resonable temperature. I will mount a couple of slim fans, probably from scythe @ 800 rpm.

What do you think?

What do you think?

ENGLISH
I think that if you want a silent build, 2 Scythe fans could be perfect
If you want to overclock without liquid other fans could be better

ITALIANO
Se vuoi una build silenziosa, le Scythe potrebbero essere una buona scelta. Se invece vuoi overclockare senza liquidare opta per altro

No need, my card is already clocked..I can't push more

GPU-Z

Like I said, no problem at all with temps. I will add the small scythe just for be sure..but no need more fans or so. Even the 5820K it's pretty cool but thanks for your suggestion

Compared to the Performance Desktop CPUs, the HEDT models have proper TIM, which really helps with temps.

Ah, I have added two slim fans..honestly there aren't huge difference like I said. 3-4C in load on GPU

A quick run right before sleep!
