Product on Review: Carbide Series Air 540
Manufacturer and Sponsor: Corsair
Street Price: £120 / $140 (At time of review)
Corsair are a force to be reckoned with in the broad range of sectors they are involved in but more especially the computer chassis arena. They have brought many successful offerings to the table over the years and we have had the delight in putting these cases under close scrutiny but today’s review sample is a step into new territory for the multi-award winning brand.
It’s rare that we see anything truly innovative in the computer chassis department nowadays but Corsair are attempting to push the boundaries with their new offering to join the Carbide Series. The Air 540 brings with it a unique design containing dual chambers to separate components in a bid to deliver superior air cooling. Touted as Corsair’s new brainchild can the Air 540 push the boundaries for innovation or will it simply fall flat on its face? Join us as we closely examine this exciting new case.
Corsair on their Air 540
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.
