5 out of 5 eggsGreat case, plenty of room, nice almost square design

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

Pros: great design
plenty of room
great airflow
cable management
separate compartment

Cons: see through side panel.

Other Thoughts: don't take my con as a turn off, there is nothing wrong with the side panel itself, but it would be nice to have an option of a solid side panel. I'd still recommend this case to others, I just have mine facing the left leg of my desk which is longer that the case.

This case is great, its almost a square design rather than the normal tower type design. this design looks better and serves a purpose. the interior is split into two compartments.

The motherboard side is about 60%, and has a few access ports that go to the PSU side of the case for nice cable management.
There's also plenty of room on this side. I'm using the Noctua NH-D14 cpu heatsink/cooler and the depth still has about an inch of clearance before it would touch the see through panel side of the case. It has space for two HDD on the bottom of this side which plug into built in sata connector that has its wires on the PSU side of the case.

The psu side is about 40% of the total width of the case which is a great idea. The PSU side holds the power supply, and has a small rack to hold 4 to 5 SDD drives above the PSU. this side also has the 5.5" front panel bays going into it, and plenty of room for all the excess wiring.

there's plenty airflow, the whole motherboard side of the case is vented as you can see in the product pictures. the case fans are quiet, and there is room on the top interior to add a watercooling radiator or a couple more case fans.

I'm happy with this case and would recommend it to others.

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: Lot of room for air flow in this case. I also like the separate chambers. Having a completely open chamber for the motherboard makes adding or removing components a breeze. The wall separating the two chambers has a cutout making it easy to add after-market CPU coolers and brackets without having to remove the motherboard. With cables routing cutouts all around the motherboard, cable management is easy and makes for a very clean looking build.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Fans that come with the case, 2 front mounted and one rear mounted, are 140mm and adequate low noise fans. I did replace them with noiseless hydraulic bearing fans after a couple of months. Also, this is a very large cube case, so if space and size are constraint, then you might want to check out other models.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case overall

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

Pros: Tons of space, moved over from an Zalman mid tower with barely enough room for my graphics to this and I will never be worried about space again.
love the design making managing the cables and hiding the mess extremely easy just by hiding it in the PSU compartment.
great way to get quite a few full tower perks into a mid tower size.

Cons: Only downside is that at least on mine one of the HDD tray hot swap connectors was broken, tried to install a 2TB hard drive into it but no luck, did a normal connection and it worked right away, took off 1 egg for that but overall a great case (granted it is lacking dust filters)
only 3.25" drive bays are the hot swap trays under the MB.

Other Thoughts: It is large, probably larger than what most people initially think, for a quick reference just put 2 standard mid towers next to each other and thats roughly the size of this, just to make sure you have enough room if your looksing to upgrade.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it!

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

Pros: Looks great, high quality construction, great cable management, lots of options for expansion!

Cons: Plexiglas window scratches somewhat easy, so make sure to use a microfiber clothe to clean and to blow off any dirt/dust first.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing case!

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

Pros: Amazing case. I love how the power supply is kept on the other side of the partition allowing you to hide extra wires and to long cables from site. great work there. it's large, spacey, and the fans and vents work well to dissipate heat. I'm loving it and so does my cat who has decided that the large top space is just the right size for a nap on occasion.

Cons: a bit to wide to fit in some places. I keep my computer near the floor but I know a lot of people keep their towers on a desk and the size of it makes it a bit to bulky for that. but it's a small issue.

Personally I like it but I can see how it might be a detractor for some.

Other Thoughts: The pictures for this one don't do it, but I know the one for the "artic" case has lights on the fans. This case does not have those lights. I'm unsure if the artic one does but If you buy this thinking it will you'll be disappointed there.

5 out of 5 eggsBest case I've owned

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
Optimal air flow
hidden psu and hard drives
lightweight case
power and reset buttons have a distinct click (good feedback)

Did I mention the air flow?

Cons: It's MASSIVE. A lot bigger than I originally had in mind.
Minimal air filters
only 2 front USB

Other Thoughts: Bought this case second-hand from a seller on craigslist

Even with all the bumps and bruises this thing has sustained from it's previous owner, I'm still overall ecstatic about this case. I've been eye balling it ever since I got my first Corsair case (600T) don't think i'll ever look back.

2 out of 5 eggsSo much potential, but it's squandered.

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

Pros: This case could be amazing! I love how it has separate compartments and the installation was easy. It has plenty of room if you have a massive cooler like the Noctua NH-D15.

Cons: The front microphone jack doesn't work. The front-left USB port doesn't work either. The back line in doesn't recognize any microphones I put in it. From what I've gathered, this is a recurring issue with this case.

Other Thoughts: I would send this back and ask them to supply me with one they were sure completely worked, but I have been three months without a computer. Can I play through this? Sure - it just means I can't talk to people, so being a driver for my guild is out unless I go out and purchase another headset that has a USB plug (which I'm not doing until my current headset dies). What gives? Your product could be amazing, yet you sully your name by having silly issues like this drop an easy 5-star rating!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We're sorry to hear that your Air 540 has issues with the front I/O panel (USB and audio jack) and we understand the inconvenience of sending your entire case back. Fortunately, we can send you a replacement for the part that's defective (the front I/O panel) without having to take back the entire case. If you're interested, please submit a ticket at corsair.force.com or call us at 888-222-4346 and we'll be more than happy to assist you.

Thank you,

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect Case!!

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

Pros: Love the case. Nice big viewing window to show off your system. Cable management to have a nice clean build. Can fit my two gtx 670's no problem with room to breathe.

Cons: Comes with stock fans, but i replaced all of them with led fans so not really a big deal.

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: Great airflow
Large area for cable management
Good construction

Cons: No dust filter for undercarriage or psu

Other Thoughts: I attached dust filter material for the bottom and psu area with double stick tape, it does a good job since the majority of the intake comes from the front panel.

When cleaning the front panel dust filter I would get a rag/tp and wipe it a few times before removing it, it's magnetic so when you pry it off a lot of the collected dust can fall off the filter onto your floor/desk.

5 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: This is probably my most favorite case I've ever built or used.. I've been building machines for about 14 years now, I go through a couple hundred a year and usually test out different cases

Cons: Still not perfect, I can't place like the "perfect" case I wish you could make a magical case that molded to how you wanted it when you were building..
