A case for an RTX 2080 TI

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

 i7 8700K cooled with a Noctua NH D15, 2 140mm push pull. Right now the case I have the radiator sits above the gpu maybe 1/8 inch. The cpu stays around 60-70 c during gaming. The gpu is around 80c, if I overclock a little  it gets around 85c. My cpu is at 4.2ghz. I would like a case that allows more room for the gpu and less hard drive bays to restrict airflow. The case I'm using is a Corsair 400R.

Meshfy C has fantastic airflow, but might be smaller than what you're looking for?

 

Define R6 or define S2 are good choices too

 

If you're budgeted, the Focus G is good, not sure what its radiator support is though.

Meshify C does have great airflow, it is however limited in 3.5in drive space, if that matters to you. It also has a smaller footprint that many ATX cases, which I like.

Keep in mind that an especially large GPU card could have clearance issues with it's length, just check on Fractal's website for maximum supported length compared to your GPU size.

 

Just for more info, what is the make and model of your GPU. Your GPU seems... hot but that could be an airflow issue you are currently trying to correct.

Exactly why I made sure to mention the Define S2 and R6 ?

Are you air or liquid cooled? I forgot to mention, the temps get around 80c when Afterburner limits are set to 100, temp and power.

Gforce FE, 11 inches. I'm not a big fan of the Meshify C design. I'll look at the others, thanks.

Consider the Phanteks Enthoo Pro M TG. Has a similar mesh front panel design but is 3-4" longer for added room.

So i decided to get the Fractal Define S2. It's very nice looking and the cover for the psu that hides the cables is great. Problems I'm having, the fan controller says I should be able to see all the fans in the bios (Asus Z370 F), I only see the cpu fan. I have a 140 mm exhaust fan that doesn't show. Also I don't see any possible way to connect fans to the top of the case, no matching holes, even though the manual shows 120 and 140mm fans fit.
