Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 High Airflow ATX Cube Case

Product overview



Standard Due date unavailable

The unconventional design of Carbide Series Air 540 utilizes dual chambers to deliver cooler air to your CPU, graphics cards, motherboard, and memory without your drives or power supply getting in the way. The included custom Air Series AF140L intake and exhaust fans provide great airflow performance at lower noise levels than typical case fans. And, you can mount up to six 120mm or five 140mm fans, with 280mm top radiator support and room for a 360mm radiator on the front panel. Like all Corsair cases, Carbide Series Air 540 is designed for fast, neat, and satisfying builds. The tinted, oversized flush-mount side window lets you show off your work.

5* excellent case
Reviewed by engelbert humperdink on 06/08/2013
excellent case, easy to do a tidy build with everything cable related being in the second comparment out of sight, it allows my sli setup to run at better temps, well please BUT there are 2 issues to watch for as the usb 3 cable is to short for some motherboards (thankfully not mine) but i did have an issues with vibration/resonating after installing fans on the top, which can be resolved by removing the top mesh from the plastic ribs and running a bead of CLEAR or BLACK silicon along the back of the ribs then re-assemble, now my pc no longer sounds like a bee hive, happy days
