Description

Originally built to game and some light photo editing, main reason for building this pc was that my younger brother in college needed a pc so off went my trusty i5-2500k build

Decided I wanted a nicer case so went ahead and bought the 240 air , I was worried my 390 would not fit but it actually just makes it. Cable management was a breeze in this case , only thing I noticed is a lack of airflow down by the GPU.

Good work. I really like this case. I've been toying around with the idea of a custom loop in this puppy but I just don't see it happening. Anyway, nice build :)

Google air 240 owners club there are some impressive custom loops I'm amazed at what they've fit in this case

I like what you've done with the upgrades but I've heard some bad things about part coverage with LEP they don't really cover broken parts if the cooler leaks (which is like a 1% chance that happens) other than that, I like the cooler feel to the photos and clean build, +1

I appreciate the information, never had any experience with them in the past. I looked into the company before buying it and it seems they are a branch of Enermax. So I was hoping that it would be somewhat reliable, and hopefully I don't run into any problems with it.

What are the dimensions of the video card? I was planning on getting a 390 with this case, but I'm concerned I won't be able to close the side panel.

specs say 5.12 height wise, it fits but the cables barely touch the window. I looked alot at the overclock.net 240 air owners club for pictures and video cards. From what I read pretty much anything bigger then 135mm will struggle because of the power connectors. There are a few cards that wont fit due to the heat pipes, you pretty much want to stick with a reference size board, I hope this helps it was a major concern of mine as well.

Great to see I'm not the only one painting Corsair Air 240 cases! I painted two of the six black mesh slats red in my KRySTaLoGi (Red, Black, White) build for my color scheme. Your all black scheme to simulate the bigger Air 540 cases' color style looks great!

Thanks I appreciate it. I saw a few people add a little color to their 240s, really just felt the all white was kinda bland and the black just accented it well. Nice job with the pictures of your build, you really went into details.

Do you have any trouble with the noise? I have the same fans and they seem to get loud under load. Anyways nice build, it's super pretty. I was thinking of painting mine the same exact way haha.

I run all 4 radiator fans and the two rear 80 mm off a fan hub. I dont really notice any excessive noise, the stock fan that came with the case is crazy loud in comparison. I play with headphones and I havent noticed anything for the most part my GPU is definitely much louder at this point. again im running an old hd2900xt blower style till my 390 gets back from rma. Id suggest trying to set the speeds in bios may help.

You can still OC locked Intel chips? I thought the forced BIOS update patches that loophole.. Hmm.. Is the overclock stable at least?

  • 48 months ago

I run it at stock speeds now, I havent tried overclocking it since maybe feb not sure if its still possible. I was stable at 4.6ghz for a month or two when i first got it anything higher would not allow me to boot into windows.

I'd recommend asking for assistance on a tech support forum such as http://linustechtips.com or similar. Most of the comments on completed builds are going to be related to the completed build rather than troubleshooting.
