    Hi people...

    Looking to clarify something as I am likely to build my new system in the next month or two.

    Am I correct in thinking that the EKWB EK-XLC Predator 240 won't fit inside a Corsair 250D? The MB I'll be using is the Impact VIII.

    If it could fit then that is what I'll get otherwise it looks like the Corsair 100i GTX will be the option I go for instead.

    The corsair 250d with one of those asus boards that has a daughter vrm board has a maximum of 55mm of clearance between the board and the radiator mount. I modeled it out when I did my build a while back.

    Thanks Neo... I think I have decided to go a custom loop instead. It's something I always wanted to do and if I was to look at paying that kind of money for the Pred and the rest of the highend hardware I might as well spend a little more and get a proper loop which opens up the slim rad versions and a whole new world of possibilities...

    I think I would start with the loop and just the CPU at first and then when I get the new GPU at a later date I'll add that in.
