4 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: Everything works great. The access doors are easily removed and put back in place. Nothing was chipped, stripped, or damaged upon arrival, although the box had slight damage.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Knowing this is not a standard size case and will not fit in a standard box store press board desk is important.

5 out of 5 eggsamazing

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

Pros: This case has amazing airflow and helps keep my GPU and CPU very cool. It also makes cable management almost too easy--it feels like cheating. I feel like every aspect of this case as extensively thought out to make the most install-friendly, feature-rich case and it just plain looks amazing (especially the internals after install; there's barely any wires visible!)

It has two HD "trays" on the bottom that you can literally plug and play hard drives with. As in, there are ports built into the case. I was not expecting this, and thought it was brilliant.

I love this case and look forward to using it for as long as time permits.

Cons: bigger than I expected, but I'm not complaining

4 out of 5 eggsNice case, needs better packaging.

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

Pros: Great cable management, plenty of space to work in, nice airflow.

Cons: Only one front usb port worked at first, it no longer does.

Audio ports in the front dont work, back audio ports went out within a week. Mobo worked fine in the old case. So I think it's the case cables, but have no way to test it.

One of the clips to hold the front panel broke in shipping, ssd cage was rattling around in the main side of the case, side window kinda scuffed up and cant be cleaned.

4 out of 5 eggsGood case

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

Pros: Very large case, plenty of places to hide wires. Easy to build in and holds H100i in the top with push/pull and has room to spare.

Cons: When I opened the box there was a small piece of plastic floating around in the case. It looked like a tab off of something, never could find where it broke off of though. A few days into owning it I removed the 2.5 mount to install another ssd and the locking tab snapped off. It didn't really affect how it mounts just no longer locks.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb

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

Pros: Best cable management ever.
Loads of room for airflow and GPU's.
Decent build quality.
Looks absolutely ridiculous with my mATX motherboard in it.

Cons: Drive system could have been better.
Needs fans at the bottom, not HDD's
Needs better filters.
Difficult to get an H110 in push/pull up top.
Looks absolutely ridiculous with my mATX motherboard in it.

Other Thoughts: Great case. Had it for over a year and still love it. My system always runs cool. Although The dust filters are not that great, have to (or need to) dust often.

The drive mounting options could use some work. Not sure why they thought someone would want to hot swap an HDD by removing the side panel window (who hot swaps HDD's anyways?). That space should be dedicated to more fans with air filters of their own.

Good luck getting a Corsair H110 AIO cooler to run in push/pull in the top. I had to put the pull fans on the outside of the case because of motherboard height.

I would like to see Corsair do a revised edition of this case, as it has so very much potential.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Case

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

Pros: Very organized and spacious for great air flow. Plenty of expansion room. Corsair is simply my favorite hardware manufacturer. Great products with great performance. Your SSD's, Power Supply, and DVD Drives are on their own side so they don't interfere in the air space of your motherboard, video card, processor, and RAM. Cable management is very good.

Love the clear plastic cover so I can view my beautiful components as they run!

Cons: Only con is reaching a bit... Only has 2 bays for your Blue Ray/DVD Internal Drives. But who needs more than two?

Other Thoughts: Love it! Like any chassis, there are different sizes and styles and all of them have their pros and cons depending on your needs. This is in the midsize range, as a full size chassis is larger than I really want.

5 out of 5 eggsIts Big

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

Pros: -Large
-Easy to work in
-Comes with some nice Corsair fans (1x AF140, 2x AF120's)
-Hotswap 3.5" or 2.5" bays on the bottom of the windowed side
-A lots of grommet holes for cable management
-High air flow
-Huge window looking into system
-The power supply intake is pointed out of the right side of the tower, meaning you can put this on the ground without worry of suffocating you PSU
-Good water cooling support

Cons: It is big... so if you are looking for a small case then look at the measurements for this case, not taking off an egg because I love it and its described in the bottom portion of the specs page.

The Corsair badge on the front of the case cannot be re-orientated. For example if you wanted to place this case on its right side to have a cube case with a horizontal mobo. You have to remove the badge from the double sided take and reapply the tape yourself versus it being magnetic or on some sort of spring thingy system.

Also I think addition feet for the right side of the case just in case you wanted to set up the horizontal example from above. Currently you have to DIY it or possible scratch the very nice finish.

Other Thoughts: It is large (at least to what I had expected) and that is great! Beyond that it is a dream to work in, looks very good, and after the build is complete it makes your system look great. A lot of cable management options in the back end (right side).

All is great with this case. Some downers though, the badge on the front can NOT be re-orientated. So if you set it on its side, the badge will throw a few things out of whack. Also I would love to see included feet to put on the right side so I don't have to DIY it and destroy the beautiful finish of the paint. Great case.

The only thing about my finished build that I have an issue with isn't even the case, just my video card, which does NOT have a back plate, is drooping. It would be nice to see Corsair sell video card support beams or something to help people like me out.

5 out of 5 eggsNot as big as people think

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

Pros: The case is spectacular. Just the lay out of the case and the cable management is just awesome. I never liked the cube cases but this one got my attention. I had a coolermaster 690 II advanced before and loved the hot plug bay on top and this didn't have it so I was a little bummed but when I found out that the side cover does not lock in place like the others cases I have had where you have to slide it back a half inch and then pull out, this one locks in the front only so the hot swap bays inside are easy to get to. Also its for high airflow but can do liquid cooling just as good and there is plenty of room in the second chamber for a res and pump. I also paint my cases and this was the easiest case to disassemble no masking needed a few screws and off comes the covers. well though out case.......cleaning is a breeze with the front and top rack that comes off and assembly is even easier with the room you have. the size well it looks huge but its not its only 3 inches wider then my coolermaster 3 inches shorter and 4 inches less in length.

Cons: not a con but I would like the front and top crills to be a bit more sturdy, but they don't come off often so. and if you have a power supply with a lot of wires that don't come off non modular then you need to learn the art of cram and your good

Other Thoughts: Asus Crosshair V Formula Z AMD 8350 8 core Corsair H100 liquid cooler, Corsair vengeance 16 Gb DDR3 @1866 Corsair force 120 Gb ssd X2 1Tb seagate spinners x2 Nvidia GTx550Ti 1Gb x2 running SLI Corsair 750 watt PSU

5 out of 5 eggsCorsair Carbide Series Air 540

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

Pros: This case is awesome. Keeps everything cool and the side panel allows you to show off the internal components of your machine.

Cons: not really a con but the hot swaps could have been raised off the bottom of this case a bit, or oriented differently.

Other Thoughts: Deffinatly worth the purchase.
