5 out of 5 eggsBest mid tower case for the money

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011048-WW) Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Cube Computer Case

Pros: - Large amount of space
- Very high airflow
- No sharp edges
- Rubber cabling grommets for wire runs
- Clean looks, no matter what color
- Extremely quiet

Cons: The case is very roomy; however, if you're looking to run more than two graphics cards, go full tower.

Other Thoughts: This case is an excellent value, especially when on sale.

5 out of 5 eggsWhite Cube of Pimpness.

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011048-WW) Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Cube Computer Case

Pros: Huge. Lots of space for everything. If size is an issue, this is not for you. Great design, I like how the hard-drives are arranged. Very easy to work inside.

Cons: Only space for two 3.5" Drive Bays :( Wouldn't be an issue for me if SSD's were cheaper and larger.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet and beautiful

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011048-WW) Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Cube Computer Case

Pros: Fans are really quiet, in fact I can't even hear its on but I see it is because of the LEDs. In fact, the computer doesn't make any noise until the HDD fires up. Lots of room to put extra graphics cards and whatever crazy cooling system you have in mind. Cable management is a breeze.

Cons: The SSD cage that it comes with is a little weird to me. But you have slots for 5 SSD's which is nice, I guess. The 3.5" slots are hot swap and there are only two of them. So if you have more than two 3.5" HDD's, you are out of luck.

Other Thoughts: This case is BIG. But if you have the room to spare, that's usually a good thing because you get better cooling action and you can fit more stuff inside. Since all the ugly stuff like PSU's and cable chaos is tucked away in a separate chamber, you really get a nice view of your motherboard and graphics cards etc. through the side window.

4 out of 5 eggsReally Ties the Room Together

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011048-WW) Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Cube Computer Case

Pros: Aesthetically I really like this case. Of course I wouldn't have bought it if I didn't. After recieving it, I'm glad I got it- the case really ties the room together.
The separation of the SSDs, PSU, and Optical drives from the Motherboard, ect is a really neat design. Giving you easy access to whichever side you need to work on. Thought there are some potential cons with this (see below).
Very sturdy, clean, easy to assemble.

Cons: -The window feels like cheap plastic and I'm not sure how durable it will prove to be.
-The two separate sides lends itself to cable management....but depending on the orientation of your motherboard you may have your Pwr cables and data cables stretching across each other a bit. Still plenty of room, but if you wanted a clean look through that window, maybe it won't be as imagined*
-Its a Mid Tower...but big because it's wide. I don't mind at all and think it's great- however if someone is looking to conserve space maybe it's not for them. I downgraded from a full tower and I'm essentially takinig up the same amount of room (just horizontally now instead of vertically)

Other Thoughts: -The cable management/look could all depend on your PSU, Motherboard, cable lengths ect. I just found mine looks a little jumbled.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011048-WW) Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Cube Computer Case

Pros: -A little short for ATX case
-A lot of space, fits PHTC14PE with hyperx beast
-for "lazy" people who don't want cable management. LOL
-Direct Airflow.(this is a big one)
-VERY BIG window to show off your components
- Can accomodate 3-4 SLI/xfire DEPENDING on mobo
-AF140 fans included (not loud in full speed and pushes air, CFM not static pressure)

Cons: -Fan filter(s) **see other thoughts
-a little fat/wide but thats expected so no big deal

Other Thoughts: I purchased the Demciflex filter set for this BUT if you live in AZ or any place that gets really hot in summer, i wouldn't suggest placing all of them. I would deal with the dust that suffucating the case and keeping the hot air in the case. I replaced all fans with AF140 LED for a total of 5 installed[3 exhaust(1 reasr, 2 top) and 2 front intake]. Even with that setup, the demciflex wouldnt let the top fans blow air. the rear fan ended up being the only exhaust. I'd rather clean it once a week or ghetto mod the silverstone 140 filter(NOY ULTRA FINE) and place them on top, bottom of HDD trays and 1 directly on the PSU. Overall, very nice case and a lot of companies are jumping in the "double wide" cases, just see computex 2014.

4 out of 5 eggsCool

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011048-WW) Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Cube Computer Case

Pros: Excellent Cable management.
AirFlow

Cons: On Both hard drive cages as in the 3.5 and one of the 2.5 enclosures arrive broken. Maybe due to ups.
The Power Switch plastic that surrounds the connector was not on the wire and i have checked the box.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent case design , Super roomy and clean

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011048-WW) Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Cube Computer Case

Pros: Large case and looks so clean. The extra 2 to 3 inches around the motherboard really clean up the look.
Plenty of holes and built in grommets to organize every wire or cable you can imagine.

Some benefits are not even listed but it comes with two rubber slide out 3.5 hard drive cages on the bottom and a 2.5inch hard drive rack stacking 4 laptop or ssd hard drive for Raid storage or high performance. In the area where the psu is mounted you could easily have a second backup psu bolted in.

The top of the case is open clearly an excellent mounting option for a horizontal radiator or 2 more 160 mm fans.

comes will all the screws you could need. Case screws , stand offs, motherboard screws and thumb screws for the rear panels. It even includes data cables for the 2 primary hard drives and power connectors.

The case includes 3 fans that sell normally for 20 dollars each and the are silent.

Cons: The case outside is plastic not metal. The power button is super sensitive. I believe it is a proximity sensor that picks up even the lightest touch but the reset button you must actually press in fully to reset. I have turned my pc off accidentally twice.

5 out of 5 eggsRoomy and Modern

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011048-WW) Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Cube Computer Case

Pros: The space you get for your components is pretty amazing, it hides the powersupply and hides most of the cords as well. The viewing window is huge as well, can't say enough good things about this case.

Cons: One of the fans it came with didn't work, so I just ordered a new one, just make sure you get the corsair 140mm with white leds to match the ones in the front. I also got white led strips to match the case.

Other Thoughts: Perfect spacing for radiators and liquid cooling :D

5 out of 5 eggssuch beauty

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011048-WW) Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Cube Computer Case

Pros: SO MUCH ROOM!!!

2x High performance corsair AF140 fans with white/blue LED included in the front.

1x High performance corsair AF120 included in the back (no LED)

PSU can be neatly tucked behind the motherboard mounting panel. Rear chamber has plenty of room for cable management and mid size water cooling equipment

Room for 3x120mm front mounted radiator. (Have seen some people do 3x140mm with moderate customization ) and 2x140mm or 2x120 mm top-mounted radiator. The holes are already there, pre-spaced.

Does not have endless stacks of hard drive slots. This keeps the case clutter free and improves airflow. This is such a huge PRO for me. I simply do not have that kind of requirement. Even if I did, I would run a separate storage cabinet.

Such beauty

Cons: Transparent side panel feels like plastic. Flimsy. bends easily.

White paint is smooth, glossy feeling rather than grainy

case has a lot of plastic

bottom mounted 3.5" HDDs are an eyesore. I removed the brackets.

Other Thoughts: Building a pc in this case what such a pleasure. Now that I have seen how much better my pc looks with the PSU tucked cleanly in the back, I don't think I can ever go back to conventional ATX designs.
