Corsair claimed that you can only fit a 290 mm gpu in the air 240 but a 312 mm gtx 980 g1 gaming easily fit with room to spare between it and the front mounted h100i radiator. Wanted to play around with the G3258 while I wait and see if I want a broadwell chip.
White Lightnin was actually struck by lightning so time for an upgrade.
Sticking with the corsair air 240 for now.
CPU: since we are upgrading decided to just kick it up and go with a intel i7 5820k. Stable 4.6 ghz @ 1.2 V without any trouble(45˚C gaming load, 60˚C under stress test), haven't really tried to push the gpu at all yet. May try for somewhere between 4.7-4.9ghz as a christmas gift to myself
Mobo: EVGA micro fits the black color scheme I wanted and there aren't a lot of choices in mATX in X99
Ram: Originally purchased a 16gb 3000 set from Kingston but one of the dimms wasn't functional so sent it back and went with 16gb 2400 corsair lpx
GPU: Went with a gigabyte gtx 980ti G1 gaming(parts say regular windforce, couldn't find the G1), was tempted by the Galax 980ti HOF but wouldn't fit in my current case set up
SSD: Using combination of drives. 120gb as a boot: 240 for fallout, skyrim, battlefield, arma, and mods; 500 for all other games. Was leaning towards an intel 750 for everything, holding off for now as Samsung announced a 1 tb 950 pro nvme is coming the beginning of 2016
Monitor: Recently added Dell 34" ultrawide to my VG248Q, got it for way under cost and couldn't say no. It has been amazing so far, possibly still switch to the acer x34 for the better refresh rate
