Product Overview
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.

Outstanding Cooling
Our Direct Airflow Path™ design utilizes dual chambers to deliver cooler air to your CPU, graphics cards, motherboard, memory, and other PCI-E components without your drives or power supply getting in the way.

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.

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.

Built for Builders

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by great case, great cooling Excellent looking case. quality build as to be expected 31 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by OK case but not enough room for a push and pull H110gt cooler Maybe its my mobo ? i have the asus sabertooth 990fx r2.0 and the Cable that connects top right of the cpu dosen't give enough room for push and pull on the h110gt 22 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by One of the easiest cases i've worked on Good points It's got a lot of space and it's very easy to work in. Because of the way the PSU is in another compartment, the side with the window looks very clean and tidy. when you've finished. Airflow is good, I've added two 140mm fans from Corsair with the white LED's and it makes it look very smart. Bad points More options for Hard drives would be nice. The two slots at the bottom are the only places where you can put 3.5" HDD's is in the main area, in view. The hard drive bay in the rear section of the case only fits 2.5" drives (such as SSD's). For me, having the large HDD in the front takes a little bit of the 'clean' look I like about the case away. Also, because the PSU is much nearer to the mobo power ports, you'll have a lot of access cabling which makes the rear compartment a proper mess. 08 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Neat It took a lot for me to leave my old Aurora Gigabyte Tower behind as it just felt like class the way it was made...This tower can look bulky but it helps you to construct very neat builds and has no problem fitting any sized Graphics Card...my 980gtx fitted with ease along with my reasonably tall CPU fan. The fact the PSU goes behind the motherboard and you can feed the wires through is a great tidy idea...that along with the ease of slotting the Harddrives at the bottom of the case (One SSD) really made it looked like a neat build in the end...Airflow is also great with this case...No Regrets 31 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Top bit of kit Was a little worried when getting this case. The size the price. But after getting it out the box and taking a look at the quality I was happy I spent that little extra. All fitting in nice and tucked away. The airflow through it is like having an air conditioning unit going. The big window on the side is spot on and everyone who see it can't help taking a look inside, even the dog lol. Go buy if looking for a new case. 30 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great case, however the item arrived damaged. Nonetheless... This product is exactly how the internet reviewers present it: a great case, with excellent air flow, cable tidiness and a very nice display for the components you have going in it. As the title says, the case got here damaged, probably because the delivery guys put some weight on top of it during delivery. The rear sides of both side panels were bent, and some bits of plastic were chipped off loose in the case when I shook it a bit. Despite that, the case is looking great and I haven't asked for a replacement. As a tip for people who bought it already and are reading those customers reviews (while waiting for the delivery), if you are planning on mounting a 280mm radiator on top as I did (a Corsair H110i GT), be mindful that when combined with the 3 140mm fans that you get with the case you will get NEGATIVE air pressure inside the case; for only 2 (the front ones) will be blowing air in and 3 will be blowing it out. The result is that the case will start accepting air from other sources/holes like the grill next to the rear PCI extension slots resulting in dust build-ups despite having the intakes filtered. Awesome product overall! 29 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic, Roomy and Gorgeous I have been after this case for a while now due to the tonne of space and upgradeability it offers. I was not disappointed when I went to fit all my parts into it. It offers fantastic cable management due to the rear shaft and offers lots of room for radiators for if you want to water-cool (I presume if you're wanting this case you plan to do custom water-cooling) I gave it a 4/5 for value due to the fact that it has went up by about £15 in the last 2 months which is disappointing. However, still a fantastic and gorgeous looking case. 29 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A nice bit of kit ! A fantastic package that's done its home work for cable routing and showing a neat display of your components. 25 March 2015

I really like my fans in a case to be quiet, and the case itself, so I was wondering how loud it is and if I would need to change it

Answer: 
Hi there,

The fans in this case are nice and quiet. Just ensure you don't plug them in to your "PWR_FAN" plug on the motherboard. Like anything plugged in to that, the fan will go to maximum.

If you're after a quiet case, this is one of the best. Competing options for the same volume are really only the 90 degree Silverstone cases like the FT02 and RV series cases.

Answer: 
At full power, they are pretty loud. Mine spin up to full for a second when powered on and they sound like a jet engine.

Under normal loads? Practically silent. Theres a slight, soft hum that comes from the machine, but I suspect that's because of my H80i rather than the case fans.

Full tilt - theyre audiable, but I only game with a headset on, so I NEVER notice it.
Idling away at low RPMs?
I couldnt ask for much more from a free fan.

Bear in mind, these ARE corsair retail fans without the colour ring bells and rubber corner whistles.

Answer: 
The case has lots of 'open' areas due to the mesh so it could be quite loud. it all depends on the fans. I use corsair fans with the anti vibration corners and I can barely here them. My graphics card is the noisy part atm so it will be replaced sooner than planned.

Answer: 
The fans that are in the case aren't actually that loud. As you would expect from a quality brand like Corsair with the more expensive stuff better fans are supplied. However I am no longer using the case fans that came with it, for the time I was using them I was having no issues with lots of sound coming from them. Now I have replaced the default ones with AF140 Silent Edition the case is virtually silent with the only sounds ever coming from my Radiator/Pump.

Because of normal drive design, a shorter list would be ones that would not work. Take it as a given any will work and simply test it out before you put something important in it.

Answer: 
There is a dust filter in the front that covers the main intake. It is a good filter from what I can tell and is keeping a lot of the dust out. You could fit a standard 120/140mm dust filter in the back of course depending on what size fans are in there. And the same with the top. I can also confirm that a 280mm dust filter will fit under the top cover for the top intake/out-take.

Yes, any 120mm or 140mm fan filter will fit on the back or top fans and the front comes with a filter. I'd recommend these filters as they are what I use for my corsair air 540.

Answer: 
You could, I have this case an I do think that would be possible. However you would need to have some way of propping the bottom up so the air intake for the PSU isn't obstructed. Also the actual bottom of the case may not be the prettiest which might not be something that would bother you. Although you could cover it up with something of the same colour as there are holes there for the HHD hot-swap bays. I hope my answer was somewhat useful.

Answer: 
Yes but I'd see about getting some rubber feet to stick to the side. This way you'll still get a little bit of airflow for the PSU exhaust.
GPU sag isn't an issue. Heavy coolers tend to come with a back plate in order to help brace the card anyway and I've never had a card noticably sag.

Yes. Correct me if I'm wrong but the board in question is a Micro ATX. This case supports all sizes of motherboard up to EATX (X99 platform sizes) Next time you should have a more thorougher look though the item description and it will tell you what motherboard sizes it supports.
