Updated Review 03/02/2014
Love Love Love this case. This is a builders dream. Pay no attention to the nay sayers complaining about flimsy plastic, loud fans or lack of features/options. This case is priced with the intention that you will place high quality fans in it. If you take your time and not force the hard drive trays then nothing will break. I run cougar and corsair performance fans and have no sound issues. Cable management is 2nd to none. It makes you look like a digital Jedi. I took the metal mesh off the grilles up top and on the front and sprayed them to match my interior light scheme. All my buddies love it and two have bought it now. My temps (CPU, GPU, RAM, MB, etc. are all lower than any other case I've owned). Easily fit my 280mm RAD in a push/pull config up front with plenty of room to still connect all my SATA cables, my USB 3.0 cable, and power cable. Fits dual 780ti Classifieds with ease also. Most all Optical drives have clips in the trays for side loading too so most any DVD or blue-ray player will work. The white power and Hard drive activity light add class to it also.
The short USB 3.0 cable from the front header is a thing of the past. They ship with much longer ones now. If you research this case you will find that it has already won some nice awards. No case will ever be perfect for every builder. For me this one was close. The huge window gives you tons of options for design. My buddy went with green lights, a 10" Hulk figuring standing inside on top of one of the hard drives and he custom ordered vinyl stickers for the window that make it look like the cover of a Marvel comic. Its SICK! The dual chamber design has allowed me to hide my pump behind the mother board and after modifying the bottom slot cover I ran two hoses out the back so I could hang my reservoir outside of the case along the bottom of the window. I run two custom loops. One with Aurora Blue fluid in clear hoses just for looks (hence the outside res), and one for my CPU and GPU's (distilled) and this case lets me hide both pumps and one reservoir in the second chamber. I can't say this is an ideal LAN rig but if your looking for a nice mod-able base station rig then the Air 540 fits the bill nicely.
