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

Pros: Best airflow case design I have seen
All the messy cables are hidden
Reserved look and feel
Quality of construction
2 hot swap bays for 3.5in drives

Cons: Front panel header cables are too short
I wish the included fans were PWM
Size - it really is a very wide case (>1.5x normal cases)
Window on the side
Only 2x 3.5in bays, 4x 2.5in

Other Thoughts: This is the cleanest PC build I have done. Having the PSU in the second chamber means all the cabling which is both messy and restricts airflow is hidden and just pops through holes to the main section where needed.
This is better executed than the over/under cases such as the antec p180 series, and means there is plenty of room to put everything in.

My main gripe is the cables for power switch, led's etc is not long enough to route correctly with my MB. Corsair's help ticket system won't accept the case part number.

MSI Radeon HD 6670 DirectX 11 R6670-MD2GD3 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Quiet, drives 2560x1440 display, cheap, does not require extra power

Cons: Takes up two slots.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to complement an existing card so I could drive a 2nd 27" display. My primary card can probably drive both using DVI + display port, but for $40 after rebate, this seemed like a good option.
Its quiet enough that I can't hear it over the other fans, all of which were selected to be pretty quiet.
