Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011030-WW) Black Steel / Plastic ATX Cube High Airflow Cube Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Oh so so so SOOO close to perfect it hurts 08/01/2014

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011030-WW) Black Steel / Plastic ATX Cube High Airflow Cube Case

Pros: So very easy to build in and make it look sharp and clean. Cable management is a breeze and took be a whole of 2 minutes to get things tied off and looking great.

Aesthetically it's very pleasing to me, combined with 3 LED fans any build with this case looks gorgeous.

Spacious, great for airflow and plenty of room to upgrade on cooling options later. Great size love the pseudo soft touch feel on the front panel plastic.

Almost everything about this case is perfect for what it is aiming for. With a few minor exceptions...

Cons: Now these are not SERIOUS draw backs for the case, it is like I said near perfect, if this is what you are looking for. But they are things that if patched up in the air 540 2 or whatever will catapult it to the ranks of legendary cases!

2 biggest problems for me revolve around the same thing as most people talk about and that's the 3.5in drive mounting. The fact there are no mounts in the back even for 1 is a little perplexing. As well as the gaping holes beneath them that seem to serve no real practical purpose other than to show off your carpet or desk if you chose not to populate them.

Next is the lack of a dust filter on the top. While I really liked that you guys realized with such an open design you put a filter on the front intakes which is nice. Buuuut did you forget the top? Dust can easily seep in through the loosely perforated top mesh. I have a h100i as an exhaust though so I won't have much dust build up but others might.

The last and one that made me chuckle more then be frustrated. Is that with a box shaped 140mm fan populating the rear exhaust it blocks the hole for the top side panel screw. While the panel won't fly off or shake and such it's still kinda funny considering most decent after market fans do come in square frames.

Other Thoughts: While I said a lot in my cons they weren't actually huge cons just suggestions on things to fix and they are very easy to fix.

Just put 2 3.5in drive bays in the back and make the 2 in the front removable. Next please get rid of the holes under the drives. Even if they are for cooling there must be a more elegant implementation.

Next just smack a magnetic dust filter up top.

and finally move the sind panel screw hole up 1 inch.

Other then that flawless case in my opinion. A real knockout and an amazing purchase. Oh and if you make a version with tempered glass instead of acrylic i'll probably die of excitement.

G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL9D-8GBSR
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I have bought 2 kits of this one about a year ago and another about a week ago. They perform great and look great aswell. Nothing that seems out of the ordinary which for RAM is a good thing.

Cons: The second kit I received had a green PCB instead of black. Again not a big deal once they are in the slot you can hardly tell. And I don't mind the green PCB but I did buy this thinking they would be black.

Mionix Naos 3200 Black 7 1 x Wheel USB 2.0 Wired LED-optical 3200 dpi LED Gaming Mouse
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: First off I don't personally own it but my friend does and he's let me borrow it for awhile to test it out.

If you have medium to large hands and are looking for an optical mouse for gaming just look no further. This thing fits your hand like a glove and feels like it's made of silk. As other people have said this is a extremely comfortable mouse which makes a huge difference for those long gaming sessions. The sensor is a solid 3200dpi optical. Which means no mouse acceleration and it works on dam near ever surface. (though i wouldn't use your leg as a mousepad when playing CS:GO) You can change the LEDs to match whatever color scheme you may have.

Cons: Honestly I personally don't have cons but i think it's cause this is just about the perfect mouse for me. Feels great, tracks great, and outside of playing WoW I hardly use the 12 buttons on my naga so I don't mind the lack of extra buttons.

Other Thoughts: Seriously if what I stated above is what you are looking for in a mouse GET THIS MOUSE you will not be dissapointed
