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

4 out of 5 eggs I love this case... For the most part. 03/25/2016

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

Pros: - My node looks awesome in it
- PLENTY of room for almost everything. (see cons)
- the 3 fans that it comes with are great.

Cons: - Bigger than I thought it was going to be. I didn't expect it to be as tall as it is. Not a problem for me but its about the same height as a normal mid ATX case and twice as wide. Might not be for everyone.
- The drive layout on this thing is odd. There is no place to mount 3.5 HDDs in the rear where I would prefer them but plenty of SSD slots back there.

Other Thoughts: If I were to do a redesign on this case I would definitely put the SSD's in front HDD in the rear. The ability to only use 2 3.5in HDDs put a damper on my ability to run parity. Forced me to use Raid 1 instead of 5 and put my more attractive SSDs in the back.

Even with the cons I still love this thing. It looks amazing and everyone who has seen it has been all like "whoa".

SAPPHIRE NITRO Radeon R9 390X DirectX 12 100381NTOCL 8GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 OC Version w/ backplate (UEFI) Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Runs everything I've thrown at it on ultra upscaled to 2k.
- Looks great. Love the backplate.

Cons: - I had heard through review that this card was "longer than average". I used a Rosewill Challenger case. It did not fit. Make sure you do your homework.
- Comparatively large power draw to a GTX970.
- With Polaris right around the corner I would only buy if you are needing a card RIGHT NOW. But that's any card really not just this one.

Other Thoughts: When I picked this up it was the day after the price went back up to $400. At $350 this would beat the snot of of a GTX970. As noted above I really needed a new card but if I could have waited for Polaris I would have.

ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro Rev. 2, CPU Cooler - Intel & AMD, Multi-Directional Mount, 92mm PWM Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: - I've been using this to OC my i7-2600K to 4.0Ghz since 2012. Idle at 34 - 36C and I've never had a problem with it.
- Price point

Cons: Depending on orientation it gets in the way of my RAM.

Other Thoughts: For $20 I'd put this in any build it would fit in.
