Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011048-WW) Arctic White Steel ATX Mid Tower Cube Computer Case

5 out of 5 eggs Solid case - great Corsair quality 11/22/2016

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011048-WW) Arctic White Steel ATX Mid Tower Cube Computer Case

Pros: I wanted to try a different build this time and this case allowed for it. I built it with all white components, so overall - I'm very pleased with it. A ton of room for drives (optical and storage) as well as good cable routing.

Cons: So far, so good - no complaints yet

Other Thoughts: Current Build:

ASUS Z170-PRO LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Great and solid Asus board with typical reliability. It matches the new all white build and is a solid choice for gamers.

Cons: Only downside is the lack of USB ports - I had to buy an extra internal card and install it. Not a deal breaker, just a minor inconvenience.

Pros: Much more affordable than the 1050 watt bigger brother. My current build (below) doesnt need even this much, as Pascal is a lot more efficient, power wise.

Cons: if it only came with white cables - To upgrade to a third party solution would cost about $100. Which I havent done yet. They should have the option to swap out the typical black cables for white. Obviously people are buying the white for a build, give us the option!

This is the only reason it doesnt get 5 eggs.
