Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011048-WW) Arctic White Steel ATX Mid Tower Cube Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Nice sleek look, good airflow, plenty of room for cable management (or to ignore cable management all together lol) in "back" half of the case, can accommodate large graphics cards and, for those people who can't work in tight spaces, room to work.

Cons: only one filter (no top filter), two gaping holes on the bottom of the case where HDD slots are (if you aren't using HDDs, they are wide open to dust)

Other Thoughts: I've always gone with large cases so I had room for bigger graphics cards, extra fans and just room to work in the case. Decided to try this case because it appeared to have the room for me to work and the cable management space just can't be beat by any other case on the market. Except for the big holes at the bottom of the case, I'm happy. Corsair really should have provided the ability to close off that section of the case (simple plates to put in the hdd slots would have done the trick). I put two 100 mm fans in those slots to push air out but it would have been nice if Corsair had simply provided a way to close that off. Given that people are now choosing to use SSDs more often, it would just make sense to acknowledge that in a case that provides a completely separate area for the SSDs.

Silverstone PP05-E 0.98 ft. Flat Flexible Short Cable Set for SilverStone Modular PSUs
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: far better length for smaller cases than the standard size that come with the psu

Cons: one of the cables was not long enough to run from the psu to the top of my mobo (short by about 4"), should be a part of the psu package

Other Thoughts: My psu is an older one and I don't believe any company supplied shorter cables at that time with the psu. However, this has changed and Silverstone appears to be one of the few companies that doesn't automatically provide them currently. While I appreciate that they sell them separately for ppl like me, I think new consumers should not have to buy them separately.

Corsair Hydro Series H110i GT High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 280mm
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great temps, quiet even at high fan speeds, long hose that makes it easier to config in bigger cases

Cons: it only came with enough long screws for one set of fans (can't do a push/pull set up out of the box) -- called Corsair to complain and got a second sent shipped to me... but still, should really come in the box.

Other Thoughts: Overall, a great AIO and, imo, better than the older versions with the smaller length hoses. But, if you are planning on doing a push/pull config. just know that you won't be able to do that out of the box -- unless they change that while they are doing the reseller recall (see Corsair website about why they recalled).
