2 out of 5 eggsRattle box

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 CC-9011034-WLED Silver Steel ATX Cube Computer Case

Pros: -compartmentalization of the psu, 2.5" bays and the two bottom 3.5" bays make for nice cable management
-very roomy for a mid-tower
-room for five chassis fans
-virtually tool-less
-looks great

Cons: realistically there are only two cons i've found, and one if them may be user error on my part.

the first one is that the mounting trays for the 3.5" bays on the floor of the case are kind of flimsy. one of the little handles that you squeeze to remove the hard drives snapped off. maybe i applied to much pressure, but the trays lock in fairly tight so a considerable amount of force is needed to remove the drives. not taking an egg off for this since i probably gusto'd the thing off.

the second con is the major one. this case has absolutely no sound dampening. the thing rattles and hums so much that i'm seriously considering running only one chassis fan until i can replace the case.
the top portion of the case that covers the two top fans makes the most noise. the black plastic strips that run along the face of the case and along the top are not secured to the metal grate underneath very well, and rattle quite loudly. some of them are so loosely applied that i can bend them up off the grate a solid quarter-inch without effort. i had to stuff a piece of fabric underneath some of them so they don't rattle.
combine that with running a fan in all five locations and this thing just sounds off. there is almost zero noise when running just my cpu cooler (the liquid cooler that came with the fx processors, which is basically the corsair h80i).
i thought maybe i got a bad fan with the case or the extra one installed was bad, so i unplugged them one by one to try and find the culprit. turns out that none of the fans are bad, and running more than one chassis fan at once makes the case hum and rattle incessantly. i'm not looking for silence, i know fan noise comes with the territory. but the sound this thing makes is akin to someone running a dremel behind a couple closed doors across the house.

tl;dr - flimsy 3.5" mounting trays, no sound dampening and unbearable humming and rattling from the case.

Other Thoughts: such a shame. i really like this case and it's features, but i can't stand the noise it insists on making.

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 CC-9011034-WLED Silver Steel ATX Cube Computer Case

Pros: I am so glad i went with this its quality made and already has several ways for water cooling. plenty of room and space and if u need anything they sell parts online on there site. really nice big window so you can see everything and so far nothing ever really heats up at all. is pretty huge but not to huge.

Cons: none, wish it had some more lights maybe.

Other Thoughts: 5830k, x99s msi gaming 7, 32gb gskill 2400, samsung 850 evo 500 gb 3d vertical, corsair 850 hx, corsair hydro series H100i, corsair carbide series air 540 silver edition,windows 32 and 64 bit, geforce 970.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Build Quality

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 CC-9011034-WLED Silver Steel ATX Cube Computer Case

Pros: This steel case was built with PC builder's enthusiasm in mind. It's absolutely stunning layout and chambered design makes for super clean cable management. I've already recommended this case to several of my friends and they've already made their purchases for this case. DO BUY!

Cons: It's too sexy.

Other Thoughts: I made a new rig for the holidays and threw in an Asus Rampage IV Black Edition motherboard in there. This case comes with a standoff stud that accommodates the center screw hole of the motherboard to hold your new motherboard in place to line up the other eight screws. This makes installing a new motherboard so much more easy.

5 out of 5 eggsworth very penny

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 CC-9011034-WLED Silver Steel ATX Cube Computer Case

Pros: quiet, sufficient airflow, well organized 2-side component space design, large holes for managing cables in the back, ideal size to put under desk. easy to clean the dust

i had a hard time choosing between this model and the corsair t760 case. I was first attracted by the t760's side window. but I eventually chose this model for myself during black friday sales at a low price. worth every penny

PS: my friend bought the t760, I am glad I didn't buy that one, it's very nice but its way too huge (and tall) if you have limited space in your room or under ur desk

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: would be better if this model have more color selection

5 out of 5 eggsjust got this today

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 CC-9011034-WLED Silver Steel ATX Cube Computer Case

Pros: looks great ! this case was very easy to take apart the magnets on the front dust filter are very strong so you should have no rattle. this thing has a ton of room I can't wait to start building in it. I was going to buy the black case but I'm glad I picked this the silver paint looks very nice and the overall build quality is solid. The case came in a large black fabric sack to protect it during shipping.

Cons: The only con I can see at this point is that one hot swap cable comes out right next to the PSU don't know if this will be a problem or not.

4 out of 5 eggsA Big Box

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 CC-9011034-WLED Silver Steel ATX Cube Computer Case

Pros: -Big and spacious. Very easy for a first time builder like myself to manipulate.
-Two compartments: front and back. The window looks into the front, letting you look at your work, while the back hides the mess of cables.
-Raw size and compartments let you manipulate cable lengths. An excessively long cable can be stretched and strung.
-

Cons: -"Quick Swap" bays need a little wiggle to get working. If your BIOS did not recognize a hard drive, it's probably because it didn't go in all the way. It's also a little annoying to latch a full-size HDD in them.
-Again on the Swap Bays, the sliders don't accommodate SSD's very well. A nice little idea, but best to go without.
-Not sure if I like having a vertically oriented DVD reader...
-Heavy!

Other Thoughts: Used one of these cases for the pre-built computer I bought. I liked it so much, I re-ordered it from Newegg when I returned the pre-built machine they gave me.

Any complaint I have about this thing is minor; this really was nice to work with, and the sheer size guaranteed that everything was going to fit without question. I can't give full eggs because of the DVD drive and awkward Swap Bays, but I would still recommend this thing to anyone building for the first time.

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 CC-9011034-WLED Silver Steel ATX Cube Computer Case

Pros: lots of over head room for a push pull fan system with water cooling, easy wire managing.

Cons: only 3 SSD bays and 2 HDD bays with the room the case has youd think theyd make more spots for drives

Other Thoughts: the pictures do not do justice to the color of the case, its more of a gun metal color in my opinion, it looks great.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost awesome

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 CC-9011034-WLED Silver Steel ATX Cube Computer Case

Pros: Nice form factor. Excellent cable management options.

Cons: Only room for 2 HDD*. Not necessarily friendly with E-ATX boards.

Other Thoughts: Still completing my build, but here's my findings so far:
EVGA X99 FTW board has the USB-3 header at the bottom; right in the middle of the right HDD bay, leaving only one real spot for a 3.5" drive. (I'm using the 5.25" bays already.) Make sure you look at the layout of the MB you're going to use to avoid similar problems.
This case is awesome if you have a bunch of SSDs and internal water cooling. My water cooling is external (gutted Reserator 2 radiator inside a min-fridge), no provision for external tubing. I'm going to have to either drill holes or run the tubes under the video card. I picked this case as it's the perfect size to sit on top of the mini-fridge, but didn't pick up on these details.

Case is super easy to work in, and my gripes shouldn't affect most users. It would be nice if it were a wee bit wider, with extra 3.5" drive bays in the back section.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Form Factor

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 CC-9011034-WLED Silver Steel ATX Cube Computer Case

Pros: Case form factor is fantastic. Setup was incredibly easy, and the larger rear chamber made cabling a breeze. The airflow is fantastic, as well.

Cons: The HDD hotswap bays seem kind of cheap. They work, but I hesitate pulling the drives out every time.

Other Thoughts: I installed a massive cabinet/desk in my office, and the space between the top of the desk and upper cabinets was way too short for my full ATX tower. Being able to find a shorter case that accommodated my motherboard AND provided better cooling is a massive win.
