5 out of 5 eggsA pleasure to worrk with

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

Pros: I just finished my build over the weekend using this case. The thought put into the design is apparent once you start to work with it. I've never had such an easy time making things so clean and tidy, I'm impressed. Its solidly built, organized, good airflow, intelligent layout, there really isn't anything more one can ask for a case.

Cons: It has a large foot print. This is not a problem for me, I have the space, it is about 1.3 to 1.4 x the footprint of a regular tower, so if you are hurting for space this is something to consider. Other than this, there really is no con to this case.

Other Thoughts: It has a great manual too, overall it was just a pleasure to work with.

5 out of 5 eggsFavorite computer case I've seen/had

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

Pros: Very spacious computer case with plenty of room on the backside. It comes with SSD bays for multiple drives which was nice. You are also able to fit more HDD's than you'd ever need into this guy. I believe the airflow is designed really well on this; the powersupply is somewhat segregated from everything else which helps reduce the amount of heat that gets trapped. It comes with high quality corsair fans as well and the top vent was basically designed perfectly for an H105i radiator.

Very satisfied.

Cons: The media bay that mounts a CD drive is practically impossible to use. I was not able to get mine to fit through from the backside. You are able to take it out but I was being lazy and just left it out. I think it looks nicer without a CD drive on the front anyway.

Other Thoughts: I can definitely see PC case manufactures starting to go with the cube model over the traditional tower.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent chassis

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

Pros: Plenty of room and options for cooling needs.
Unobstructed air flow across GPU.
Mid tower form factor
"Tool-less" installation for many parts. (Factory tightened some thumb screws a bit tight, but excellent after first install)

Cons: Bottom of case has two giant holes below the hotswap hard drives. Could easily see this as a problem if you own pets unless ( hair getting in case ) you somehow block the holes. Massive oversight in design.

4 out of 5 eggsProbably the best out there!

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

Pros: Lightweight, sturdy, and sexy! Has enough room for a Titan, and just the right amount of air power to keep a lot of hardware nice and cool!

Can fit an H100i with NO ISSUES!

Cons: Drive bays are vertical, and there are only TWO of them on the side. Taking one egg away for this.

Other Thoughts: If it had 5-10 bay drives sitting horizontally in the front, I'd give back the egg.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Case! Very pleased.

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

Pros: I needed a cube case for my small desk so I could position my second monitor on top of it. I did not want to put the PC on the floor.

The cable management in this case goes above and beyond. I really like having the PSU in a separate compartment than the Mobo and other guts. It makes it look soooo clean!

The air flow is amazing also. I moved the 2 stock 140mm fans from the front to the top and replaced them with 3 120mm blue LED fans. Looks pretty schnazzy. Of course the more fans you have, the louder your rig is, but I'd rather put up with a slight hum than have to replace expensive components after overheating.

USB 3/audio/mic jacks on front too!

Cons: The only con I have is that the SSD clips are a bit flimsy. Definitely be careful with installation.

Other Thoughts: Lastly, be sure you have space for this case. It is bigger than I was expecting, but plenty of room for a GTX 970 and a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo.

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: case is very easy to work with great cable management.

i did use the SSD bay that is mounted behind the motherboard so can not comment on the durability of that.

stock fans (2 x 140mm) are somewhat quiet unless they are running full speed then they can get loud so i am replacing them with 3 x Noctua NF-F12 PWM 120mm Case Fans.

i installed a H100i on the top mounting spot so i dont need a dust filter there.

Cons: only wish they have a side panel that can support a case fan there for more intake air.

xfx 290x can get a little hot (89C-91C) without a side panel fan.

Other Thoughts: My Rig:
I7-4770k
H100i cpu cooler
Asus Sabertooth Z87
XFX 209x black edition
16 corsair vengence Ram
1tb WD HDD
500gb Samsung evo 840 SSD

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome. Roomy.

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

Pros: ROOMY!. Great cooling. Easy cable management.

Cons: Huge, not enough 3.5mm hard drive location.

Other Thoughts: Awesome case. Easy to install all the way around. The cable management makes sense. Everything is left nice and clean because you never see the clutter. I knocked one egg off because the case is only designed for two 3.5mm hard drives. I mean there is NO place to even try to stick another one. Unless perhaps you buy a 5 1/4 adapter. Which I couldn't because of my optical drive and fan controller. I have 3 very large 3.5mm drives and the 3rd drive I had to literally stand on top of the SSD cage and use a zip tie to hold it in place. It's still a good case, but I had to drop an egg. Yes hard drives are getting bigger, but not everyone is upgraded to SSDs yet.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, but could be better

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

Pros: It is a good case, silent, easy install, looks really nice. a lot of USB ports, a lot of spaces inside, cable management is really great. Only thing I do not like is - it's a little big and wide then I thought, and also, ONLY got 1 filter for this FANCY case... Need to buy more filters for it... and not too much filters are right size for it !!

Cons: Good Case ! Air Filter Lacking !

4 out of 5 eggsGreat (BIG) Case

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

Pros: HUGE case made building my PC much easier

Superb airflow inside this case (maxing out brand new high end games and nothing even gets near over 70 celsius)

Three case fans are near silent (wish they had LEDs though)

Build quality is decent but not great for the price point (I accidentally sat (completely) on the plastic window panel and it did not snap or break/bend to my surprise)

Love the large cube/rectangle design as it allows you to hide wires and the PSU completely from view

Hot swap drive bays are incredibly useful

Dust filter in front of case is a great addition (included)

Cons: The build quality is not the greatest for the price point, but this case is huge so it kind of makes sense. (mostly fairly solid matte black plastic and metal mesh for airflow/design.

Only one air filter included for the front of the case where the two front fans draw in air, no filter for PSU/top grill/mesh.

Other Thoughts: Would definitely recommend this case to pretty much anyone who doesn't mind/is looking for a large case with lots of room for maximum air cooling/looks/space

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: Plenty of space in this thing
Gorgeous window
Runs Cool
Price
Cable management

Cons: 1 Dust Screen

Other Thoughts: The top grill came in with a decent scratch out of it, Corsair quickly sent me out another.

The case is really nice looking and surprisingly roomy for how short it is. Managed to install a Swiftech 220x AIO water cooler with plenty of space around the ram and tons more space for expanding the water cooler. Not sure if the side window is tinted or not but its one of the nicest looking windows on a case I have ever seen. Because of the two compartments cable management is pretty simple keeping most of the mess on the non viewable side of the case, making that window that much nicer of a feature. Really love how the separated out the hot components versus the cooler running stuff have noticed a significant drop in temperatures using this case versus using my old Thermaltake Spedo Advance.

The only downside I have noticed so far is only the front grill is supplied with a dust screen. Would of liked to of seen more such as the top and the PSU opening, though time will tell if they are even needed.

There are a few plastic parts with the case, time will tell how durable they really are, not sure if that's a con or pro at the moment.

Overall a great case from Corsair to go with all the other great products I have from Corsair (psu, ram, SSD, fans... would of done the water cooler if it wasn't for the simple fact I can expand my Swiftech). I did debate the black over the silver case, but the flat black is really nice looking.

Highly recommend this case to anyone that is looking for a spacious case that isn't the typical tall tower.
