4 out of 5 eggsGreat case!

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011030-WW) Black Steel / Plastic ATX Cube High Airflow Cube Case

Pros: easy cable management, every thing fits wonderfully, plenty of room to mount a 240mm radiator/fan on top and a push/pull set up without any issues of space. Love having all peripherals on the back side of the case to keep the front side with mobo and vid card free of cable clutter

Cons: 2 5.25 hdd trays at bottom of case which is great except one of the trays is in a spot that makes it a real pain to hook up the cables to the psu because the cables feed out to where your psu is...i had to take that bay out because it was unusable due to above reason

Other Thoughts: Overall great case for the price and very well setup to fit anything you could want in it

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic case

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011030-WW) Black Steel / Plastic ATX Cube High Airflow Cube Case

Pros: very spacious , very easy to keep your cables out of site . Lots of cooling options .

Cons: 1, No filters on the bottom,infact giant cut outs let in all kind of dust - buy 140mm magnetic fan filters , they fit perfectly under the case and also on the inside of the left panel for the PSU intake.
2. SSD cage feels very cheap - also sits almost on the power supply . remove and zip tie 6'' higher on the perforated grill - looks stock and will keep the heat rising from the PSU away from your SSD's.

Other Thoughts: I thought about adding a small fan between the PSU and my relocated SSD cage but I have 7 140mm Noctua fans already in the case (5 Noctua redux's in the case and two Noctua Industrial PPC black's on the cpu cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsCorsair rocks when it comes to PC cases

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011030-WW) Black Steel / Plastic ATX Cube High Airflow Cube Case

Pros: 6/5 eggs.... I added another egg simply because this case is amazing. Great design, awesome airflow, the best cable management. I honestly can not think of one bad thing not even the littlest thing wrong with this case. It's not your average case it's about two towers side by side wide but space isn't a concern to me when it comes to max air flow

Cons: None

3 out of 5 eggsMostly good, some bad

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011030-WW) Black Steel / Plastic ATX Cube High Airflow Cube Case

Pros: Good airflow. Good looks. Enough space for whatever you want to throw at it. Gets a lot of attention, mainly because of size, but also looks like an Enterprise class server case. Overall very good and I have been happy to have this case. I have only a few specific cons and I'll list them instead. Everything else is good about this case.

Cons: - Some rattling. I have tighhtened all the screws, however due to flex of the various panels, they seem to have some room, and hence rattle during operation.
- The front USB ports have some issues with any device I connect to them, they get disconnected/connected intermittently.
- Space for only 3.5" hard drives. I didn't know this before buying and had to buy an external enclosure to fit all my hard drives. I think a case this big should have space for more.
- Large size. Although I am listing it in the cons, I kind of also have it in the pros. I personally don't have much gripe about the size but other people should really consider the size before buying.

5 out of 5 eggsCarbide Air 540 case

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011030-WW) Black Steel / Plastic ATX Cube High Airflow Cube Case

Pros: Great air flow/cooling, very easy to hide/route cables for a clean install. Would highly recommend this case to anyone looking for a roomy case with great airflow. The front air filter is a great touch, nice to know dust will not be a factor for the intake fans.

Cons: The hard drive cage mounts in the front of the case have tabs that can be easily broken if you are not careful.

Other Thoughts: Not really a con but be careful how large (thick) of a rad you use on top or you will run into clearance issues up top. I am using a Alphacool Nexxos ST30 with 2x140mm fans up top with no clearance issues. With the MSI Z97 Gaming 7 the ST60 was too thick with the fans for clearance.

4 out of 5 eggsNOT E-ATX or 12x13 READY

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011030-WW) Black Steel / Plastic ATX Cube High Airflow Cube Case

Pros: Solid, quick, well laid. HYOOOGE tracts of fans.
Adjustable large supply retainer with two screws.
Comes in a no-mar cloth bag.
Heavier metal construction, no real warp when pressured.
Will survive being drilled and threaded to put standoffs where they need to go.

Cons: Comes in a static generating no-mar bag fitted with styrofoam in a cardboard box with high metal content. Open it outside away from electronics and combustibles, my arm is STILL numb from the discharge as I write this.

Is NOT E-ATX ready, only has "full" ATX screw holes.
Is about 1mm short of clearance for a 12x13 board.

Other Thoughts: Newegg used to have a good grasp of what the term "server" meant, now it gets slapped on everything from fans to mousepads.

5 out of 5 eggsThe CUBE!

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011030-WW) Black Steel / Plastic ATX Cube High Airflow Cube Case

Pros: I have been building PCs since I was in Jr high and I can say that this is one of the most user-friendly cases I have used. There is space for everything I use, plus more room for expansion. I love how the case is divided, it gives it a cleaner look than a traditional case. The case sits on my desk so I can look into the components:)With it on my desk I barely notice the 4 fans blowing hot air out the well ventilated, uh, vents!

Cons: The 5.25 drives being vertical may be a deterrent for some, but my optical drive works just fine.

Other Thoughts: I have already recommended this case to some friends and family. If you want a clean looking, expansive and cool (pun intended) case, you've found it!

5 out of 5 eggsLove This Case

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011030-WW) Black Steel / Plastic ATX Cube High Airflow Cube Case

Pros: -Airflow is amazing. Temps improved using this case pretty dramatically compared to my previous case.

-Easy to work with. The "wind tunnel" chamber as I'm going to call it has a surprising amount of room to work in.

-If you don't use HDDs in this case the SATA pass-throughs are removable, helps with cable management in the back.

Cons: -WIDE case. Make sure you know that and know how much space you have. It's not nearly as tall as some cases, about the size of those micro-ATX towers you see at Best Buy, but it's twice the width.

-SSD mounts in the back feel a bit flimsy. My SSDs are very loose in the cages, while this wasn't a deal breaker I'd have liked them to be more secure.

-If you don't use an optical drive in the front there is no need for the giant toolless cage, but there is no obvious way to remove it...kind of have to play with it.

-If you are going to be doing SLI, Crossfire, or need to use a lot of cables in your case it can get a bit cramped in the second chamber. Make sure you tie your cables well to easily work with them in the future.

Other Thoughts: All in all this case is stylish, very flexible with what you want to build, and the wind tunnel design behind it is doing wonders for my temps.

If you have the room on your desk for this I'd highly recommend it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011030-WW) Black Steel / Plastic ATX Cube High Airflow Cube Case

Pros: Great case
Plenty of room for cables, big video cards, water coolers
Excellent airflow
Looks amazing with an added light strip

Cons: There is a bit of wasted space, but it just allowed me to not waste time tying cables.

Hard drive options are limited, but it works for my setup.

Other Thoughts: The case is exactly what is says, anyone bashing it for being to big, or not having enough bays, should have read the description before buying it.
