Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 PC Case Introduction
general information

Outstanding Cooling

Corsair’s Direct Airflow Path design utilizes dual chambers. One of the chambers houses the motherboard and 3.5" hard drives, while the second chamber houses power supply, 2.5" SSDs and 5.25" optical drives. This two-chamber design allows for cleaner cable routing, lower noise levels, and better cooling than traditional layouts.

general information

Quieter Operation

Carbide Series Air 540 includes 140mm Corsair Air Series AF140L intake and exhaust fans. The AF140L is based on the award-winning AF140 and provides great airflow performance at lower noise levels than typical case fans. The easy access, low-restriction dust filters are easy to maintain.

general information

Ideal for Advanced Air Cooling and Water Cooling

You can mount up to six 120mm or five 140mm fans, or install a 240mm or 280mm top radiator and a 240mm, 280mm, or even 360mm radiator on the front panel. Corsair’s innovative cable routing system gives you more options for hiding pumps and tubing out of the way.

general information

For the price, it's the best you can get.

Pros: - Feels like two cases in one.
- Very roomy / Easy cable management
- High ventilation
- Hot-swap drive bays
- Looks epic

Cons: - Case fans are garbage. (Replaced mine with three 140mm be quiet! Silent Wings 3.)
- The front and top panels look high quality, but feel fragile. (To be fair, they haven't broke yet.)

Super easy and clean build

Pros: I loved working in this case! The separated compartments make for easy cable management. Everything stays super cool with excellent air flow. The included fans and all the internal SSD and HDD cages are exceptional value.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you can manage the squatty cube size-wise get this case.

Crazy big case to do what you want!

Pros: Huge case with a LOT of room behind the curtain to hide all the stuff you don't want to be seen (wires)
Nice options for mounting radiators for GPU and CPU cooling loops , with a few Tweaks the resavour's / pumps can be placed on the non view side which makes for a cleaner look.

Cons: well its a bit fat but that's to be expected.
Only real complaint is lack of dust filter on bottom side of case, but if you set the case air flow up correctly you will be pushing out air from the bottom also.

Other Thoughts: love the case lots of room for multiple raid options , hot swap bays in the bottom along with room to hide your bits that you don't want to be seen.

Great Case for a I9-9900k

Pros: Case is set up great it has real good air flow for a hot running cpu like the 9900k. Love how the power supply and your ssd drives and wires are basically are in there own case. Really everything about this case so far is awesome.

Cons: The only con is if you don't have the space for the case because it is a big case. It takes up a lot of space on your computer desk.

Other Thoughts: Over all i would recommend this to a person who is looking for a case that delivers on air flow and keeping things cool. Also if you have the space for the big case. I love it hope this helps anyone thinking about this case.

excellent airflow, plenty of room to work in, looks great

Pros: The newer version of this case just looks horrible, the designer of it is basically incompetent.

This case has been around for years but is still better than many cases available today.

It comes with 3 excellent 140mm fans that really push air really well while remaining silent

The smoked acrylic makes the case look even better.

Excellent filters keep all the dust out, easy to access and clean

Cons: None, its fairly large and wide, but that is expected for a full ATX case

Power supply intake has no filter, make sure to clean the psu often, dust can reduce the efficiency of the psu.

Power Button Broke after 2.5 years of use

Pros: -Nice looking case, clean lines
-Window is clear and easy to clean
-Lots of Space for Cable Management as advertised

Cons: -Surprisingly poor build quality
-Case is extremely difficult to dissassemble to fix problems from poor build quality
-Buttons literally held in place with adhesive glue, this was shocking.

My biggest gripe about this case was the power button breaking. For a 100$ plus case... this is unacceptable.

This case is a BEAST!

Pros: Great airflow, hot-swap HDD mounts, easy to build with, feels solid, looks awesome, easy cable management

Cons: It's a bit difficult to carry

Other Thoughts: Man, just the sight of this case makes people think the internal hardware is powerful. A pc in this case just looks like an intimidatingly powerful rig.

This case feels super solid. There's practically no give anywhere on the main unit, and the side panels feel strong too. Even the plastic parts feel sturdy

Fully stocked with fans, the airflow is real. Maintaining positive air pressure is a breeze! The dual-compartment setup makes cable management ridiculously easy.

However the bulkiness does have a downside: it's more difficult to carry. My rig weighs about 40 lbs total, but the cube-like shape makes it feel more like 60. But it's not like it's supposed to be a laptop, right?

I like that the hot swap HDD mounts are on the bottom where they're more stable and resistant to vibrations. Not that I've ever had an issue with vibrations messing up an HDD, it's just a nice touch.

The tool-less screws are very nice, getting inside to make tweaks or upgrades is super easy.

Lots of room but has warts

Pros: Large volume of space to work with
Plenty of cut-outs that enhance cable management
The pre-wired removable carries for hard disk is a nice touch...but see cons

Cons: The removeable cradles were "pre-pinned" to hold the disk in place but the plastic was extremely difficult to spread apart enough to get the pins into the disk's screw holes.
Had to slam the carries into position multiple times to get them to fully engage the SATA data and power connectors and get the cradles to firmly lock in place.
The 2.5" disk carrier (holds up to 4 disks) mounting sceme is flimsy at best. Any movement of the case and it will fall off the interior panel.
Its a shame that it is such a nice case but comes with uggly gray fan blades. At this price point Corsair could and should have done something more aesthetically pleasing.
When installing the motherboard connection panel I noticed the case in this area flexes somewhat and made the installation a little more difficult than it should have been. The case could use a some stiffining in this area.
Tool free? Well sort of but not from the factory. Corsair must use a 800 pound gorilla to tighten the case screws. Had to use a large screwdriver to loosen them.
Final gripe; the instruction manual is as my college Prof for a technical writing course would say is "Low Information content". Still working on how to get the front grill cover off without destroying the case.

Other Thoughts: In spite of my complaints, I still rated this case 4 stars. It is big, but has lots of room and very easy to work with routing cables, installing the motherboard etc. Warts aside, if you are looking for a big roomy case that you are not going to move around much this may be a great solution for you.
