5 out of 5 eggsIt's a keeper

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

Pros: The spaciousness of this case is phenominal. The dual compartment for components is a really nice design feature as well. Has plenty of cable management options. To me the most impressive thing I didn't know about this case was how 2 hard drives at bottom are connected right to the case eliminating unslightly wiring. Home run corsair!

Cons: Wish I would have used a case like this sooner.

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: this case has tons of room, with great airflow. a great choice for overclockers, or someone that wants a clean build. i was a little weary about the case when i first looked at it, but glad i chose this one. big enough to fit the gigabyte G1 gtx970, which is a really long card, and still have room up front.

Cons: no cons. however, the shipping has room for improvement. they sent the case in the original box via ups, which was fine. but the original box is not the best for shipping. if the box was run into a corner of a table or something of that sort, it would break through the box, and probably damage the case. i did not lower my rating for this, but it is something that could cause you to have to return the case if it was damaged during shipping.

4 out of 5 eggsSpacious beautiful case, good tech support

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

Pros: Kudos to Corsair tech support. My case was missing a HDD tray and some case strews. After a few messages to their support forum, I receive them today. It beats calling on the phone.
This mid ATX case is well built and spacious. It is so much bigger than my last mid ATX case. In fact, I may even mistake it for a full ATX case if not for the label on the box.
Plenty of room for video cards, PSU, hard drives, SSD's and water cooler.
I like the SSD rack even it seems a bit flimsy. The HDD racks are rather delicate. So be gentle.
Those case screws are big and easy to use. I love them.
Installing water cooler was easy. (I bought Corsair case with a Corsair water cooler. I thought they would fit better.) Plenty of fans and the front fans are lit. It really doesn't matter to me since I am putting the case under my desk.
I also like the cable management. You can put most of the cables in one side of the case.
I always like Corsair product. In fact, I like it so much I also bought the Corsair RAM. Too bad Corsair doesn't make motherboard.

Cons: The HDD racks are delicate and the case screws need to be tightened probably. It is really big so do your measurement before buying this case. It only comes with three fans but you can buy more.

5 out of 5 eggsRevolutionary Case! :)

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

Pros: Best designed case for airflow, and easy cable management. I love the 2 hot swap trays on the bottom that you can fit either a HDD or SSD. They remind me of the HDD slot trays that server chassis have. I also love how corsair separated the case into two parts. (All the components that generate heat are on the windowed side, and all the components that practically generate little to none heat go on the back half of the case.) The optical drive mounting, hot swap trays, and psu mounting is screw/tool less.

Cons: Didn't know the fans on the front glow in a white color instead of blue like on the pictures, but I don't mind. They also could have made the exhaust fan glow white too, instead of a boring unlit grey color.

Other Thoughts: I will probably never give up this awesome spacious cube design.
This is truly a one of a kind case for a average person or modding enthusiast to show off their work.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat idea cheap plastic

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

Pros: The case is well designed for the most part. Plenty of room inside to keep everything clean and organized.

Cons: The plastic is cheap...yes most plastic is. the bottom hard drive (3.5 in ) caddies have both broke inside of 2 days.? They are designed to squeeze and pull out of hot swap plugs at the bottom. With not much pressure both had one of the two prongs snap off. On one of them I actually snapped the second prong off while removing it to access the damage of the first prong snapping off.
Then there is the hot swap plug its self. in the main compartment there are the 2 plugs consisting of a sata and sata power plug. In the secondary compartment they have a sata cable and sata power cord to be plugged in to mobo and power supply. One of the sata power cables ( plastic ) the outer plastic edge which helps to keep the cord in place was broke off ( from the factory ).
Won't bother rma'ing as the problems are mainly cosmetic but, no the less cheaply made.

Other Thoughts: The caddies breaking eliminates the hot swap feature..which i never intended on using but, would have been nice as an option.
Also this isn't on the case but something to consider. A Corsair ( Case Manufacture ) h110 water cooler might not fit the top or front in a push pull configuration. I say might because, on top the mosfet heatsinks on my mobo get in the way ( again not on the case ) and in the front my video cards get in the way of the bottom fan. So my pull is one fan only.
Final thoughts the 2.5 in tray is kinda flimsy and there is enough room in the second compartment to have put some 3.5 in bays so you could have more than 2 if you desired or just some place else to mount them.
I've bought many items over the years and never left a review under 5 eggs even when i received doa products ( waited till got a working product to judge ). I've also bought cheaper items were i expect these kinda of things and did not review badly. The simple fact is @ this price point these kinda things should not happen.

5 out of 5 eggsOne case to rule them all

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

Pros: This has to be one of the best cases I have used for one of my builds. The overall design of this case is aimed at easy installation , clean wiring , and high air flow.

Plenty of wiring paths for all of your cabling.

H100i installed flawlessly with 0 issues.

Corsair really stepped up on this case design.

Cons: Front case face plate feels lose(plastic area)

5 out of 5 eggsSexy and and spacious.

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

Pros: Got mines. This case is so beautiful. I went with the white colour because it will match my Motherboard. Oh and everything is alright with the case, like it should. No cracks or anything.

Cons: Not a single one.

5 out of 5 eggsI LOVE this case!

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

Pros: -spacious
-super quiet
-excellent airflow
-partitioned case
-stacks nicely

Cons: -air filter on the front is a pain to clean
-open

Other Thoughts: Some people are complaining that the window pane feels cheap, but I want to know what exactly are you expecting? It's a LARGE open area and the flexible plastic means it's less likely to crack or shatter.

This isn't a case for constant traveling. It's almost the width of two mid towers side-by-side and the partitioning for the motherboard and devices works wonderfully. Lots of space for even the fattest CPU cooler on the motherboard side, and lots of space for PSUs, cable management, HDs, and two 5.25" bays for front panel devices.

I would buy these again without hesitation. The multiple large fans and spacious open area keeps it cool and very quiet.

5 out of 5 eggsbest case I've owned thus far..

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

Pros: I looked at many cases when I was building yet another pc. I've owned Antec, Lian Li, and many other top brand name cases over the years and I can honestly say that this case (for the money) is hands down the best yet. Sure, you could spend North of 500 bucks on a Case Labs case but if you're like me and not into a 500 case but still want a beautiful, fully functional, plenty of space, case, this is it. 3 color combos to choose from and every part can be replaced if need be. This thing has so much room and air flow its fantastic to say the least. With 2 spots for 240mm radiators and 6 spots for fans, it definitely stays cool. I like the separate chamber for the PSU and optical drives. Plus all the wiring stays hidden in the second chamber letting the motherboard and video card(s) get plenty of air. And it just makes for a very neat setup. I am a fanatic when it comes to my case and it's wiring and this thing has yet to disappoint. It's made well for the money and has all the amenities of a case costing twice as much. And the one thing I have taken advantage of is the ability to order and use a second plexiglass side panel on the PSU side of the case. Both sides are interchangeable. I purchased the white version and love it. It looks really cool. I've added a strip of LED's inside to show off my gear. All in all, if you want a case with huge compartments and excellent built quality then look no further. I got mine on sale for 139.00 and couldn't be happier. You don't realize the size of this thing until you get it out of the box. The cube shape is unlike anything else on the market. It makes a statement for sure. So if you're looking for the perfect case for your next build, don't overlook this one. It's definitely worth the money.

Cons: None.
