Carbide air 240 GPU problems!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am upgrading my brothers computer for his birthday. One of the things i wanted to upgrade is the case, with the Corsair carbide air 240. But i have seen a lot of complaints that it cant take wider graphic cards.. My brother has a 960 (https://www.asus.com/us/Graphics-Cards/TURBO-GTX960-OC-4GD5/specifications/) which i think is like 12,1cm wide.. Will it fit?

it will fit .

according to corsair as much as 290mm so technically your card will work but it might be snug. 


main system build --> i7-7700K (at 5.0 ghz), MSI Z270 SLI Motherboard, corsair vengeance lpx 8gb ddr4 2666mhz,  costume liquid cooling loop with 360 mm radiator on CPU, GTX 1080 gigabyte windforce OC, 1TB WD drive, 128 gb samsung nvme m.2, EVGA 850 watt semi modular power supply, CM storm stryker case (ya not ideal for costume loop), VIOTEK GN34C 34 inch curved monitor <----

Definitely looks like a glitch to me, both posts are exactly the same. Mods will merge replies to one thread (*cough @iamdarkyoshi cough*)

 

@SirFido your card is basically a founders edition card, the GPU will fit no problem

Threads have been merged. Appears to have just been a forum glitch :)
